This is my dog altar. These are my dogs (Maxine, Star, Chloe, Artie, Coke, Rosie and Bear) who are already in heaven but who still are with me every day. I miss them all so much and try to remember some little thing about each of them that keeps them alive in my heart. Max loved to stalk–if you walked towards her slowly, she would walk towards you slowly and then she’d pounce when she got close enough; Star did the”boot-scoot boogie” as we called it because when she was really excited, she ran with her butt almost on the ground and her tail between her legs and she’d kick up her legs and run fast in circles; Chloe carried gigantic sticks/logs around and because she collected so many of them, the house became known as Chloe’s Stick Farm; and so on. This altar is in my bedroom and I think of all of them as my little choir who greet me everyday and who remind me how lucky I am that I could share their time on the earth with them. It’s a given that however long our dog’s live, it’s not long enough. So go love your dogs right now and don’t stop.
