The Princess Remembers

9 Comments

I thought growing old would take longer. But here I am at eleven and a half and everyone is telling me how good I look for my age.

I am now on three medications a week but the response is usually, ‘Well what can you expect at her age. Things go wrong.’

Thanks guys!

They say that when you get older you tend to live in the past more and more. Remembering.

So as everyone seems to be saying how old I am I decided to look back.

I decided to get the old photos out and play ‘I remember’.

I remember many more occasions than these but I think it would be too many pages.

I remember when I saw grass for the first time and meeting Zac (my Uncle) who was gentle and taught me everything.

I remember cuddling up with Zac in bed.

Friends share......

I remember when the world was new and an exciting place with lots of new smells and sensations.

I am The Princess (aka Zena), niece of Zac the All Black and awesome Tibetan Terrier who took me in when I was just a six week pup and tried to teach me all he knew. When I was six and he was eight, Zac crossed over the rainbow bridge and all of a sudden I was alone. I could no longer be the ditzy, happy-go-lucky pup that I had been. This is a diary of how one Princess managed when the world turned real.

  3. Memories are precious.

  4. You are fortunate to have so many good memories and a uncle/teacher as loving as Zac. I hope you will be making many more dear Princess Zena.

  5. Oh, I remember it all too, Purrincess Zena and my heart aches too when I see your pictures. We have to catch up on you, my furriend, but will send Healing Pawkisses and purrayers to feel better soon right away ❤ ❤ ❤
