It's been two weeks and one day -- and I miss you more and more each day! I know you are happy, healthy, and having a great time. I am happy for that -- but extremely unhappy you are not here with me.
I took Star to Nancy's yesterday -- another loss for me :( She should be having her babies in a few days. I didn't want to part with her -- but, with Nancy she will be safe, secure, and have her babies in a very calm environment ... cuz, I don't know nothin' about birthin' no puppies!! The house is so quiet -- it was quiet with Star here -- hehehe, but.... since you don't yell at her every time she barks --she has been barking more, in her little raspy Foghorn Mary bark. I miss your bark, and your sassing, and how you would bark ferociously at the TV at those horrible dogs who were trying to make their way into our living room :)
I wish I had you back. You were such a comfort to me -- always. You were a wonderful dog Farfel -- I am so happy that we found each other :) I miss you. Time hasn't healed these wounds. You were my best friend forever -- thanks for being you :)
I told Nancy I wanted to reserve a puppy. Nobody could replace you :) It has to be a little boy puppy :) I think Star will like living with her son. She can be the boss :) We have treated Star like a little princess these last two weeks. Farfel -- I don't think she misses you, or else she hides it very well. She is such a sweet girl.
We love her :)
I was thinking of names for the new puppy -- Farfel Too -- cute :) But .... with shortening and nicknames.... we felt he would end up being called Far too ... and eventually Fart -- nope! I can hear you chuckling. That isn't a name for an Airedale -- especially your successor :) We will just have to see him and decide on a good, proud Airedale name --- there can be just one ... Farfel the ONLY Airedale in the Village :)
Nancy offered me a "loaner" dog -- Star's daughter from a previous litter -- I haven't decided yet. I really haven't decided 100% on a puppy -- but, the anticipation would be good for me. I want to make sure everything is good for Star :)
In my weird mind -- I feel with your passing... and the puppy's arrival -- maybe somehow you two could pass each other -- and rub off on each other :) I guess stranger things have happened.
The Vet's office sent a very nice card. They all signed it :) The Doc wrote a very sweet note -- and they enclosed your paw print. It's beautiful :) It makes me sad to look at it -- but at the same time, it makes me feel close to you. Today -- I pick up your ashes. It will be difficult.
I have to tell you about all of your wonderful friends who have been so thoughtful with their comments :) I only wish I could have those comments when I go :) You were a special guy :)
Be well Farfel :) I will miss you forever...
