Thank you Ami for this beautiful photo of Angel Shamus

Angel Shamus.  Courtesy of  Ami , Asta's mom
Ami knew how very much I wanted something special to display on my sidebar.  She took her time and amazing talent to make this for me.  I really don't have words to say thanks enough or what a perfect picture this is. 
Ami has been a wonderful , supportive friend through thick and thin.  I don't know many folks as thoughtful, kind and giving.  And look, he is in a field of bluebonnets.  The Texas State flower.  Though it brings tears, it also makes me happy.    
I wanted to biggify to share Ami's wonderful work.   Thanks Ami.  Just thanks for this, your friendship.  Everything

I know how sad you are and we all wanted so much for you to have joy with this beautiful boy. It was not to be and our hearts are breaking for you.
I hope he is chasing his favorite balls over those lovely fields in heaven

There were heavy hearts in Texas and dark clouds lined the skies,

Dear Shamus crossed the Rainbow Bridge – tears filled his Mama’s eyes.

But although Shamus wasn’t on this beautiful earth for very long,

There was so much love for him; his memory will always go on.

He will never be forgotten, although his life ended far too soon,

His memory is a golden reflection shining across a harvest moon.

When the sun rises in the morning casting light upon the forests and streams,

Sweet Shamus will be forever with you, in your life and in your dreams.

Your friend, Jeannie xx Sent with Much Love and Sympathy.

Jamie - you did all you possibly could and more for sweet Shamus, sometimes these decisions are so hard, you have been very brave - I admire your strength and courage.

As always you did your very best for him, and as humans, this is all we can do for our beloved Dogs.

I hope you don't mind the poem. Your post about him broke my heart.

That is just beautiful - and such a meaningful way to remember Shamus. It seems like it was just a short while ago that he was getting his name. Ami is a sweet lady to do that for you.

Hi Jamie!

I'm so sorry to hear about your
Shamus. And I also wanted to stop
by and thank you for the kind words
you left on my blog about Penny.

The photo Ami did for you is



We are very sad to hear about Shamus. It is always very tough when the young cross the bridge. We do not envy you of your decision. You did what you thought was right and for that may God Bless & keep you.
