  2. Sorry to hear about your friend. Sending positive energy in your direction.
    Your Haiku tells the whole story and what is not said is felt fro your heart.
    Rebecca is indeed a mentor, not only in Haiku, but in her view of life.


  3. I'm so sad for you Abi that you have lost Mouse.
    I lost my sweet little cat mitsy on wednesday after loving her for 17 years.
    There are no words .We love them so much and the time they are with us seems too short but we will always have our memories

  8. Oh Abi, it is so sad to hear that the small one has passed away!
    But what should keep you smiling, is the knowledge, that this little doggy had a wonderful life in a wonderful family with much care and love. He had a long and happy life thanks to You.

  9. such a lovely tribute to Mouse.

  10. Oh Abi! I'm sitting here crying my eyes out. I feel your sorrow. That's the worst part of having our pets...we lose them much too soon and they break our hearts. You are in my thoughts and prayers, I'm so sorry for your loss, try to focus on the happy memories and celebrate little Mouse's life.

  11. Oh, I am so sorry to hear about Mouse. I'm sure he was a wonderful friend-- hang onto all those wonderful memories, and know that he felt your love. :)

  12. I know how hard it is to lose such unconditional love.

  13. Oh, Abi - my heart goes out to you. Losing a loving companion animal is so difficult. I'm thinking of you and sending you lots of love.

    Rest in peace, Mouse - you were loved unconditionally, just as you loved unconditionally.

  14. Thank you everyone for your treasured words. I will visit you all later when I get home from work.

  15. what a lovely tribute.

    mouse looked like a sweet sweet pup.


  16. I am so sorry. I have this quote that I love and thought I would share it.
    "It came to me that every time I lose a dog; they take a piece of my heart with them. But every new dog that comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog. Then, I will become as generous and loving as they are. " --Cheryl Zuccaro

  17. awww, sweet little Mouse..... he has such a kind face...

    sending hugs Abi


  18. Hugz Abi,
    Sorry to hear that "mouse" has moved on...I know he waits for you.


  19. Oh, I'm so sorry for your loss. What a sweet, sweet face. He looks happy - adored and adoring - in the photo. Poignant haiku.

    Blessings to you.


  20. My heart is just in very sad, but I have faith you and Mouse will be reunited someday and that's a wonderful thing!!


  21. Sending LOVE and prayers to YOU, GOD BLESS MOUSE and may he rest in peace! I LOVE Caya's quote!

  22. So sorry to hear about Mouse passing on...
    He may not be there physically but know he will always be with you until you see him again.
    He does looks so content and loved in that photo :)
    Many Hugs and Blessings to you....


  23. Beautiful Mouse will leave more than a mouse-sized hole in your heart. The most healing way, I've found, is to get out the photos and videos and laugh and weep and remember the younger, fitter days.

  24. What a beautiful tribute to Mouse. So so is one of the most difficult things to bear - the passing of our furry babies. I know this all too well. Many hugs to you! Theresa

  25. Dear Abi,
    Hoping your sad days will soon turn into less painful times where you can look back at all the sweet memories of your Mouse, without tears.

  26. Abi, I'm just droping in again to thank you for your beautiful coments in my blogs.
    And the answer to your question is:
    yes, soon, on Etsy :)

  27. Your post and beautiful picture made me choke up and my eyes well up. Abi, my heart breaks for you.

    A big hug to you my friend.


  28. So very sorry,my heart goes out to you.Lindax

  29. I'm so sorry Abi....
    He's a sweet looking guy...

    I so admire you ~ taking in all these animals. They know they are so loved.

    Take care~Pattee

  30. A fine tribute to your long-time friend!

  31. I'm so sorry for your loss... what a wonderful way to remember him...

  32. i am so very sorry for your loss..losing our beloved pets is always so difficult.

  33. Oh Abi, I'm so sorry you lost your little Mouse. I lost my 14-yr old Bichon Frise Latte while I was in Italy. She got really sick after I left and my son had to make the decision to euthanize her, his puppy since he was a young boy. It was so disorienting to come home and not be greeted by a dancing doggie. I know how your heart is hurting.

  34. Abi,
    I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your sweet dog Mouse. Today marks the day two years ago that I had to send my beloved Chloe to the angels. Though not a very religious person myself, I believe animals to be about the closest thing we have to angels walking earth that there can be. They love us unconditionally and can rebound from abuse that a human could never recover from. You are a special soul and I am glad Mouse had your love and you had such a special friend.

  35. Oh dear, so sorry to hear about your loss. It's hearbreaking, I know. God Bless All of our creatures!

  36. Abi, I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure you blessed his life just as he blessed yours. Blessing and many hugs to you.

  37. So sorry to hear of your loss Abi. Thinking of you and sending hugs your way.
    xx Shelly

  38. missing you abi...
