Find the Way to Waylon!




Only a few days ago I discovered a very special blog dedicated to a very special dog.

His name was: Waylon.
It's such a very touching story that I want to share it with you. (See link under in this post.)
I saw a beautiful slide show about him. It brought me to tears.

As a tribute to this lovely dog, I've chosen this day in particular to publish this post because April the 18th is the anniversary of his dead. He will be missed for ever!
This is a part that Tabitha wrote about her dear friend:

WAYLON
April 9, 1997- April 18, 2006

Forever in my heart.
Words could never describe how I feel about Waylon. 

He was more than a dog, more than a best friend - he was part of my soul, part of who I am.

I wish you strength today Tabitha, I know you will need it.

To the followers and readers: may I invite you to go to this blog and click on the picture above at the right side to look at the beautifull montage.
I'm sure Waylon will also conquer your heart!

  1. oh, dear! Very sad, as are all stories about animals.
    (well, we do usually outlive them,which is a good thing, for what would happen to them if our pets outlived us?)

  2. oh fran, aren't you the most beautiful kindred soul!
    thank you so much for the cross post
    your words are full of kindness and your heart is so full of love
    it brought me to tears to know that another person was also touched in some way by waylon's life

    unfortunately, i know we share a similar sorrow ...they say the depths of one's grief is only matched by the heights of joy and love that they felt
    erasing our pain would also mean erasing the love that we shared with pipke and waylon
    and i know neither of us would be willing to give that up

    so, that leaves us here...to share our stories of love in a way we hope touches others
    i know i feel your love for pipke down to my very soul
    and i feel blessed that i was also able to touch your heart with waylon's story

    hugs and love from far
    thank you

  3. To Ter-o-fla and Tabitha,

    Ter-o-fla,
    Yes it's sad, but that's how all animal stories finish. One day we have to say good bye to our dear friends.
    I feared for it from the day that Pipke was born. I started to love her from the first moment I saw her, and that love kept on growing from both sides.
    Can we love them too much? I don't think so. They give us so much in return.

    Tabitha,
    We both felt the same for our dear friends, we both know how it feels to loose what's so very dear to us. I wanted to bring a tribute to Waylon because he touched my heart very deeply, as Pipke touched yours.
    Thank you for your kind words.
    You said it so beautiful: “yes, we share a similar sorrow and they say the depths of one's grief is only matched by the heights of joy and love that they felt
erasing our pain would also mean erasing the love that we shared with Pipke and Waylon
and I know neither of us would be willing to give that up”
.
    I feel the same Tabitha! I'll never give that up, I rather feel the pain than to erase the love or one little memory of my dear Pipke.
    We are blessed that we *may have known them!
    PS: I hope the conjugation is correct.

    Thank you both for your visit!
