my garden shadow has died


By cate


we are now a house hold of only 4 cats – no dog – not going to change my avatar though – it’s very odd and lonely walk without my Lucy investigating all the new sniffs in the garden every morning

Do your cats like to follow you around the garden, I know mine does and she likes to help with the weeding!

so sorry cate about lucy, even though you have you lovely cats its not the same i know, a dog gives you a different companionship and love than a cat, take care x

I am so sorry to hear about Lucy, keep your chin up, and us fellow GoYers will be thinking of you.

Sorry to hear about Lucy. It's a sad time for you. They leave such a void in our lives after they've gone. I hope you can come to terms with it in time, and you'll be able to remember all the good times you had together :o) x

I'm also sorry to hear about Lucy! I still remember my Keru (a Basenji) who died 30 years ago, but time does heal. It's more smiles than tears, now. I'll be praying for you.

Ohhh, Cate, I'm so sorry :o( My thoughts are with you...

wow - thanks to All of you for your kindness - the void is indeed a deep one - Lucy was my first dog as we've always had cats - the cats are definitely wondering where she is - and yes Lulu they do garden with me too but watch rather than participate =)

A friend of mine has two Basenjis Tug - they are delightful and NAUGHTY! little things LOL

I do have very happy memories of Lucy Hywel - she was a dear soul - calm and sensible most of the time then silly as a wheel at others - and not a bad bone in her body =)

Thank you all again for your thoughtful words - Cate =) x

I joke that I didn't own a Basenji, Cate, but that one let me live with him! I was well trained! : D
