Shadow and I are still missing our beloved Callie’s earthly presence; but we’re moving forward as best we can. We can sense Callie’s sweet Spirit around us all the time.
While Ducky played with her Kong Bounzer on Thursday, Shadow and I took advantage of the cooler temperatures and spent a few hours playing in the backyard. Just like we used to do with Callie.
This game of fetch with the tennis ball – or any other ball for that matter – was always one of Callie’s favorite backyard games with Shadow and me. As Callie’s arthritis got worse (after the second ACL surgery), I would hold Shadow back every other throw of the ball so Callie could find the ball on her own and return to me with a successful fetch. Both girls always loved to tease me with some keep-away at the end of the fetch.
Last Monday, while Shadow and I were playing fetch, the ball bounced into a far corner of the yard. Neither Shadow nor I could find it. I sent a text to Jodi saying that Callie’s spirit had stolen the ball and was hiding it from us. I called hubby to come outside to help us look for the ball; but just as he answered the phone, Callie dropped the ball and I found it. 🙂
Now a quick note. One of the changes I’ll be making to the blog is its name and domain. I still have a lot of work to do, but I wanted to let you know that much.
