Memories of Simi - Kizoa Online Movie Maker

My lovely little girl, it is only now, a year after your death, that I have been able to bring myself to go through your photos and I have not cried too much, for the memories are happy ones.  I'll try to remember you running up the lawn with your tuggy toy in Cardiff, lying contentedly in my arms on the journey from Catania to Modica after the great adventure of our flight to Sicily and, most of all, your "night game" of bounding towards me from the hallway to the bedroom with tuggy, not realising I could see your reflection in the glass balcony doors.  Some nights, even now, I look for you in the glass and I see you, darling, I see you.  And I see you when I'm out with Bertie-Pierrine, whom I'm sure you sent. Sometimes I say, "Walk with us, Simi" and you do.

We buried you near the sea, with tuggy toy.  There the waves that will one day reunite us lull your sleep.  Thank you again for all the love.

The heart is full and memories are many, and now and then, we need to share and relive our past just to recapture those memories.

Dear sweet little Simi...we never do forget, do we? Nor do we ever lose the love.

Do you know I've never missed anyone's dog who I've never even met before but I do miss Simi.
I found a v upsetting animal story in today's press and I posted it in my blog. Don't read it if you're feeling fainthearted.
I just wanted to come by and leave my best wishes. I am hoping to get back online at home this year so I won't be semi-incommunicado any more
