Gone Too Soon

I really haven't had any time posting up the pictures of our three Golden Angels' grave because we've been so busy with the other seven but here it is...

We've named them Halo, Angel & Heaven. I think those names are so sweet...

I buried
them just outside our house in our mini garden. I decided to bury them there because we wanted them to be close to home where they were born. I didn't let Amber see the pups because I didn't want her to get upset but I think she knew because she refused to chew her cow bone which she usually loved & she just looked sad in the porch.

It was a really hard time for me to bury the three girls. The hardest part was when I had to put the puppies in & fill the hole back up. Each scoop of soil I put in, I would tear up. It sure wasn't easy I tell ya but they are in a better place now.

Anyway, I am going to make a movie about the whole whelping process tonight & post it up as soon as I can. I just found the perfect music for it & I can bet ya, it will be a very nice movie.

A Word from Hooman M:

"Today, our lucky 7 are 7 days old. We have come a long way from the start of the pregnancy to the birth of the little miracles that are changing & growing before our eyes. They are Amber's Legacy. And what a journey it has been to arrive at this moment - harrowing, emotionally draining yet richly rewarding. It is enough to last a lifetime. We may have lost 3 beautiful angels but we are blessed with seven more. And for that we are deeply grateful to God. Most of all, we thank Him for keeping Amber safe throughout the treacherous journey of pregnancy & pray that he will continue watching over her & her 7 golden babies until she fully recovers & they are strong enough to lead an independent life of their own."

The three pups are at a beautiful site. Amber will always be close to her pups!

That's a lovely site -- with the rocks and the flowers.

It will be interesting to see if Amber approaches.

We can only imagine how sad an experience that ust have been, burying the three little souls.

Wirey hugs,

Jake and Just Harry

What is the meaning of Halo, Angel & Heaven? Their names? (most probably I'm wrong).

They're with God now.

Hi Amber and her 7 Amberettes,
We're so proud of you, Amber.
Heard that you're named Mother of the year, we love it, 4 paws up!
We boys don't know how to hold the puppies, we give them lots of wet licks, love them all.
It's so touching to see the resting place of Halo, Angel and Heaven, their name is so meaningful! Here my mom leaks again!
Gosh, why my mom has to work 5 long days a week and where she works, surfing Internet is like committing a crime. Site block! that's what she gets when she clicks on the external websites! I'm so behind of reading all my favorite blogs!
Please come pick up your Awards that I love to give to you, love ya lot!
