    Thank you so much, everyone, for your kind thoughts. Kathy, we did take Barkis' collar along with us on a lovely Sunday morning stroll around the lake with the girls. Of course there is no real need of the collar now, since Spirit Barkis can run beside us at will. But holding it in my hand still makes me feel connected to him in a way that is sad but sweet all at once. It seems like only yesterday that he was our baby puppy, come to claim our hearts forever.

    Hello my Bestest Boy! It’s been a couple of years since I’ve written here, but I needed to come back again this week since this year’s “anniversary” marks a milestone for us all. It’s been almost two months now since Sweetie Peg joined you there at Rainbow Bridge. We miss her so dearly, but it does bring me comfort to picture the two of you racing and playing again on strong, healthy legs. Mr. Barkis and Miss Peggotty, finally together, as we always knew you’d be one day. Your dad and I love you both, so much, and we always will.

    You were both named after characters in a book, and now it feels to me as though our part of the story has ended and the book has closed. The story has been so sweet, and I know I can reopen the book and revisit my favorite pages whenever I wish. But there’ll be no new chapters, for now, and that does make me cry. I miss you both, and I wish so much there could have been more story to tell here on earth.

    Two years ago, I asked you to help me take care of Peg. And you did, sweetheart. I especially felt you helping me these last few months and I thank you for that. I know you’re now taking good care of Peggotty, yourself, and that you’ll both continue to watch over your baby sister Luna. She is trying so hard to help heal our hearts, just as Peg did when you first left us. Luna is now snuggling into your dog bed, just like Peg did before her. And now Peg is right there by your side, so the two of you can finally snuggle together at the end of each sun-filled day.

    I love you, sweetheart. You know you will always be my Bestest Boy, forever in my heart.

    Your Mom

    Add me to those who are celebrating the lives of your precious babies, Barkis and Peg. To know they are together again is a great comfort for all who love them.

    Many hugs,

    Thank you Barkie Boy for bringing your mom to us. She has helped so many, and it all started with you, her Bestest Boy.

    Dear Marianne,

    I too am thinking of you today and honoring your precious Barkis. I know this anniversary is even more difficult with the recent loss of Peg. Sending huge hugs your way and lots of love, in memory of your beautiful boy and girl. They are both shining down on you, especially today.
