Sat: Always & Forever Our Star

Two years ago today, our beautiful Star made her way across the Rainbow Bridge. Our hearts still hurt from losing her, but we're truly grateful for the 12 1/2 years we shared as a family.

We smile and laugh over memories of
her escapades- from her arrival as a 5-week old puppy who was 1/3rd the size of the two cats in our home, to her self-appointed role as Queen of the Dog park, inspecting every inch of ground and dispensing Husky justice to unruly pups (both human and canine).

In quiet moments, I believe she still stops by to look in on us. There's a sense of her presence in the room, just out of my range of vision, I can feel her watching me. I love those moments. Can't wait till I see her again.

I make donations to Siberian Rescues on anniversaries, but this year's will be very special. There's a very brave and deserving boy who is in need of a Service Dog. His name is Alex Wales and his family is trying to raise $6500 in the next month. We're sending a donation in Star's name. (I hope you'll take a moment to "meet" him.)

I can't think of a better way to honor our girl. She had a special intuition for children and adults in need of canine love, and won many hearts with her gracious, gentle ways.

She is always and forever our beautiful Blue Moon Star. Love never ends...

Hard to believe that it has already been two years. Star's memory still shines brightly here with us. We will pay a visit to Alex too.

Thank you for helping Alex get his service dog! I had the honor of meeting him in person, and despite his illness, is one of the most charming kids I've ever met and he's got a wicked sense of humor too!

What a touching post, it brought tears to my eyes. Star was a beauty and I'm sure her star is shining bright in heavens above the Rainbow Bridge. What a wonderful way to pay tribute to her by helping the boy! She would be wooing with pride!

Has it really been two years? We also smile at the thought of her - and we only met her on "here." What a terrific way to memorialize her this year.
