Love is when your heart is broken at times…….but also it is a moment to cherish forever… may or may not last long… will make you cry…..but in the end GOD helps you find THE ONE FOR YOU


This is the face I fell in love with. The face I dream about at night and will cherish in my heart forever until we meet again. The thought of my leaving this world doesn't scare me anymore because I know that my Tiger will at the gates waiting to welcome me in.

Did you ever wonder how we met? Last year during the spring, Mommy was browsing Blogville and saw a comment on somebody's blog about a little blond wirehair that had been rescued by a lady named Sandra, who had of all things......pits. Being afraid of pits we almost didn't go visit their blog but the thought of a new wirehair on the block was too much to resist. The first picture I ever saw of my Tiger was the one above and he had giraffi just like mine. I knew he was too young for me but Grandma used to say that the woman should always be older than her man. I was hopelessly in love. There will be no other for me.

So Mommy & Sandra became blogging friends and in April of last year, I invited him, Lucky. his Mommish & Daddish to the DROH Spring Fling. He was so handsome, my heart wouldn't stop beating. I asked Mommy, if we could buy a harness for him, that had little black paw prints on plain red material and we did! So that day became our first date. He wasn't a DROH pup but he fit right in and he was a rescue after all. My Tiger was in constant motion and so much fun. The picture below is of Sandra and MY Tiger when he was trying on his new harness. On my December 21st post. I posted a picture of my love and I sharing our first kiss, ya gotta go there to see how cute we were and the beautiful couple we made. I will never wear that dress again, so Mommy let me send a piece of it for the Memory Quilt loveingly being made for Sandra by WRN at Dachsies With Moxie.

MY Tiger's harness burned in the fire but my Aunt Judy had a small piece of the material left and she gave it to me. Mommy can't even sew a button on so I'm hoping that WRN can maybe cut out two small hearts and but them together on my dress material.

True love doesn't have a happy ending, because true love never ends. Letting go is one way of saying I love you.

With love.............Mona

Another tissue alert! We just met Tiger after he went to the Bridge, and we fell in love with him too. He looks exactly like a light brown version of the Jacks in my family. We know he very busy at the Bridge now with a very special new job.

I didn't realize you and Tiger met through blogging. I thought you met each before you started one.

I still think about the Pittie Pack and lit another candle for them yesterday.

Happy New Year!
