Riseó A celebration of love.

  
Love this deeply meaningful and profound, never leaves. It remains a part of you ..... always.
†  
There are unforseen lessons, both taught and learned that are so truly powerful, filled with absolute acceptance, unbridled passion, confidence of self, raging love and pure, unmitigated joy...that it's almost impossible to believe ANYONE could be or has been lucky enough to have that knowledge entrusted to them. Amazingly, I had that once in a lifetime opportunity to garner those particular secrets and truths, for eight glorious years. I became schooled in all that exceptionally abundant, unconditional love and trust. †  
†  
So today, amidst searing loss, I celebrate them. (The two beautiful bright souls that for reasons that will forever remain a mystery, fell deeply in love with me and vice versa) Carlie (who passed yesterday) and Sailor (who passed in August). My favorite FAVORITE four legged babies. My best friends, my dual beating hearts, that I have not one doubt, were soul connected to my own. †  
†  
I will bask, reflect, relish and I truly want to remember. Memories that my two best friends were kind enough to pick me to help create and many that were those incredibly long lasting ones, that mean so very much. Me, their truly lucky, designated 'human'... lol... Where for 8 years, we became more than we all ever imagined. More than just happy to see each other, we three, bonded. In mind, hearts and souls. Forging our own little dog pack. †  
†  
They felt it, their owners were astounded by it, sharing videos of the pups whining and crying, when I left and likewise, I would record my entry and the sheer jubilation of them running to the door, pawing and yelping their unique hellos!! Which sounds normal and dog-like. Not these two. They were usually totally chill and never, (unless chasing a brave and valiant bird who decided (mistakenly) to land in their yard) barked at anyone in a 'welcome' or got overly excited at people coming to the door. They were smart, full of hijinx, attitude, sooo fun and bold with boundless energy. All that made them so special and what I can't quite get across and convey correctly in words, was a presence. Maybe because they were a pair, not glued together but willingly joined. They definitely enjoyed their individual space but they thrived and fully loved each other, too.... even at times, if it seemed that it was begrudgingly, so....Their presence looked like that of strength and to an untrained eye, possibly intimidating (oh how I giggled at that) yet they were all marshmallow inside. Pure sweetness dressed up as Doberman. †  
†  
My life was upturned yet wholly bettered, having them in it and deemed as my 'bff's'. I believe I'll forever reap a multitude of benefits that they lovingly bestowed. †  
†  
†  
†  
†  
Here's to my soul mated buddiesó †
Safe travels, you two. †  
Run.... run free and long.
†  
†  
†  
All my forever love, †
Susan. †
