There is a sadness Mom and I feel,
each and every day.
Sometimes one of us thinks we see
Boomer Beaglie Brown, but alas he is not there.
Although, I know something Mom really doesn’t know.
Boomer isn’t very far away.
Mom said she wonders if we animals live with the gift of ‘seeing’ and ‘knowing’ the other side.
Because of that knowing it isn’t so very hard for us to slip on over,
although, having to leave our furry bodies can be a tad rough.
Outside, where I truly like to live, it is still winter.
Some days the sun warms everything up nicely, somedays the heavy snow takes the joy from the warm.
Mice are still abundant. Mice are my favorite food. They never really seem to become sparse, although I do work at keeping them thinned out.
The coyotes are terribly brave. They come yipping and yapping in the yard, running down the farm road, they know our farm is just air and darkness, at night.
They know we are dog-less.
I weary of the coyotes, as does Mom.
Still, Life Goes On, the wind continues to blow, sometimes soft, sometimes a gale.
The moonlight filters through the tree branches, making the shadows look like cobwebs.
I feel and know that Boomer is here. Maybe not all the time, maybe not as much as he once was, for sure not like he was before he passed over the Rainbow Bridge, but still here.
Boomer, Mom, and I love you. We really do. Thank you for coming to help me. Your rare gifts of protection have been proof that you are here.
Thank you, my beagle dog-friend.

We know our buddy Boomer is right there. Mom and I can’t help but think that sometimes he might be busy looking for the perfect farm dog to come and help with the watching.
Love and licks and paws crossed,
Mom and I would like that. Mindy
Linda, I’m so sorry Boomer is gone! I must have missed the post because I can’t remember it. I still picture him and Fuzzy going on their excursions. Dogs are so wonderful!!! I hate the coyotes, they’ve took more than our share of my barn cats and house cats. Eddie slowly catching them but Mother Nature allows them to make up their losses by producing many many more offspring!! Take care and stay warm. We’ve got 8 inches of snow on the ground and more coming again this weekend and next. Love ya, Rita

Love you too, Rita. Soon you will be making syrup. Not long now.
Mindy, thank you fo a beautiful post.
We just move on, don’t we. Sure isn’t easy. Mindy
Lulu: “Aww, even if he isn’t leaving pawprints in the snow anymore, we know Boomer is still coming around and leaving pawprints in your hearts!”
Always. Just like Dennis. 🙂
Oh Linda, I feel your heartache. I’m sure Boomer is watching over you and Terry and the farm. Sending xoxoxo
Me too…it just gets to me every so often. Thank you, Bets. 🙂
Hi Min Min, I think that it’s so hard for all of us that loved Boomer, especially you & Mom, cuz of the love he showed. Such a big heart for a little Beagle. Just like you, Mindy… you have a big, loving heart. I am so glad that Boomer is still there with you. You know, he always will be
Mom told me that she hopes Boomer visits, but she doesn’t want him to get stuck here. I didn’t think of that! Mindy
Oh, Mindy. You speak beautifully. I’m sure that you know Boomie is around. He was loved and he loved back. His body gave up but, his spirit is still around. I know he loved that farm. I would love a farm, too. When we are loved and we love back, we never really leave.
And THAT is a nice thing. For us and for the people we love. Mindy
Boomer is close by, I know he is! Mindy you take care of Mom!
Okay. I will. Mindy
When our dog Jazz passed, I continued to hear, see, and feel him (usually just one sense at a time). Thought I saw him yesterday, although it is almost 2 years now. I know he feels my sense of loss and is trying to ease the pain…just like Boomer does for you. They are such sweethearts.
They are such wonderful sweethearts. We are so lucky!
Mindy is right.
Mindy, do you like to be brushed? A small brushing session might be good for you and Mom. It might be soothing and comforting for you both.
Maybe…I HATE being brushed! Just say’n. Mindy
Oh Linda I have damp eyes again … thinking of you my friend and sending love
You know how hard it is. Makes for sore hearts sometimes.
