“Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love; they depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog, it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big.”

Erica Jong


Meet Me


I know that you can’t see me, but trust me I’m right here. Although I’m up in heaven, my love for you stays near.

So often I see you crying, many times you call my name. I want so much to lick your face, and ease some of your pain.

I wish that I could make you see that Heaven indeed is real. If you could see me run and play, how much better you would feel.

But our loving God has promised me that when the time is right, you’ll step out of the darkness and meet me in the light.

by Maureen Bauer (in memory of D’Arcy)

And when their wings were ready...

Your Heart was Not

“... I'll hold you in my heart...until I hold you again in Heaven”
