2007 Feels Like Yesterday

I haven't touched this account since 2007. As many of you know, my Chow Chow dog, Teddy, was sent to the Misty Gardens crematorium. It was very difficult to deal with, the thought that people could so callously treat our precious pets in such a way. I will never forget it.

Some of you know that I got a new Chow Chow from the Wpg Humane Society. (Her picture is my profile.) She was 9 years old, so I knew I might not have her for long. Patience passed away in October, 2011. It broke my heart, as I had been suffering from depression and she was great therapy for me.

While I had Patience, I adopted another Chow, Ludlow, from Wpg Animal Services, in hopes that when Patience passed on that he would be of some comfort. He helped a lot, because the home didn't feel so empty, but losing Patience still had a great impact on me.

Unfortunately, Ludlow passed away in his sleep in July, 2012. It was shocking to wake up in the morning and see him lying in his bed as I had left him the night before after brushing his teeth for bed time. I miss his beautiful, kind spirit so much. His gorgeous brown eyes would melt your heart.

I don't have any dogs now, and I don't know if I ever could. Each loss takes everything out of you. Can I handle it any more?

i hope everybody reading this who was involved in the group we started is doing well. Hug your dogs and other furred and feathered friends for me.

Lots of love,
-Gary

Our dog was buried there

I was wondering if anyone knows if anyone has bought Misty Gardens from Manitoba Conservation? Our dog, Angel, was buried there in 2002. After the closure of the cemetery, we visited in 2008 and the whole place was overgrown with weeds. We are trying to find out if Manitoba Conservation has placed the cemetery up for auction. If it's affordable, we would like to purchase it so that we can keep the property and not allow any one to build on it or farm it.
