One year, 12 months, 365 days .......

It's been one year since you, Farfel, The ONLY Airedale in the Village, have been gone. I miss you every day -- every minute of every day.

June 4, 2012 was the worst day of my life.  I, as well as my family, always new that when we would part ways, it would be heart breaking. It has been, more than you or anybody knows. Even having two beautiful sweet Airedale girls hasn't eased the pain. I love them dearly -- they are not you.

I do remember all of the good things and I smile, and am happy...but then realize, never again. Such a big lovable clown you were....how I would look so forward to coming home to you.  How you would come to me and put your head on my lap -- knowing we both needed it. How you would go up to bed on your own. How you had selective hearing. How you posed for pictures ....... but mostly, how you loved me.

Thank you Best Friend Forever Farfel for being in my life. Having you in my life makes all of this sadness worth it.

If I had one wish ---  I would wish to have one more hour with you. At the end of that hour -- I would never let you go.

I love you Farfel.

  2. Mitch, Molly,

    It's comforting to know someone understands! At the same time, I feel sad because your mom feels as sad as me. BUT -- your mom has you two!!!!! I have my two :) Your mom and I have sweet memories of our Maggie and Farfel :) Thank you for the nice words!!!

    Lots of love,

    Patti, Star, and Hoshi

  3. We understand, too, Patti. Farfel still has the prime position on our fridge and hardly a day goes by that we don't speak to him with love. He will always always hold a VerySpecialPlace in our hearts ... particularly in his LovelyMissFergi's heart.

    With love from all of us,
    Jake and Fergi, Sally and Nina
