A whole year has passed since Spotty left this world and headed for Doggy Heaven. Not a day goes by with her being somewhere in my thoughts. On her departure day I have decided to set aside each year as HER day when I do something special to remember.
She left me her feather, on the kitchen mat.

Spotty is in her Scatter Tube on the chest of drawers. I have photos and her special items. There is also a small vase and I put in some Sweet peas and a couple of roses. I spent time with my 2 tea-light candle burning , remembering.
Later that morning Benji and I walked to town. We sat outside a different cafe’ (I did not feel right to sit where Spotty & I had sat). Having Benji has helped in my bereavement and the following day felt like the heavy burden had been lifted. That Spotty approves of Benji being my companion. We do the walks that Spotty went on. We drive in the car and we visit my daughter in Basingstoke.
I have just come back from my visit. It was the first time Benji had been on the long train journey. He was restless and did a bit of winching. Next time I will give ’calming’ medication’.
It was a 50th birthday party I attended. There are some lovely walks in her area, The houses are built in such a way that there are paths and many pockets of green areas with trees. The countryside is on the doorstep as you can see by these photos.
