A Year Without You

I can't believe it's been a year. Sometimes I still think I hear you. I feel like I was holding you just yesterday. People said it would get better, that time heals all wounds. But I don't think a lifetime is long enough to get over you.

I still feel gutted and hollow.


I wanted to make a video worthy of you today, but I just couldn't get myself to do it.

Anytime I am still long enough to think about you without distraction I feel like my heart is torn out all over again.

I've been pushing even harder since you left, Boo. And I am so very, very tired.

The channel is not the same without you. My life will never be the same without you. You were a bringer of joy. A force of sheer presence. You never let all of the challenges imposed upon you by humans hold you back.

Do you are forever in my heart. And I know you touch the hearts of so many around the world. Your example has saved so many animals, who deserve joy happiness and freedom as much as you did.

I will keep fighting for them and carry you with me. And I will keep sharing your story to continue your legacy.

See the this video to learn more about this incredible being whom I was so fortunate to have in my life.

see ya next nugget!

    Truly appreciate your hard work. It’s not easy to move forward after the loss of a loved one. You can tell you love deeply and it’s been a tough year. My little dog passed on this past week. My other dog never leaves my side now. They feel as we do that is certain. You are in my prayers.
    Your kid videos caught my attention & the rest is history. My perspective has completely changed. After taking pathophysiology classes recently & watching your videos, it only makes sense to make changes. My dog has been eating vegan as well. He’s always liked eating veggies in the kitchen. Keep up the great work. Thank you so much!! Big hugs!

      Katharine, thank you so much for sharing this and I’m so sorry for the delay. I missed a lot of comments around this time. I am SO very sorry to hear about your own loss.

      That is SO amazing to hear about your change and also your pooch as well! I’m honored beyond measure. And thank you for taking the time to share this. I again apologize that I’m just now finding it… Much much love!!

    Yeah, it’s tough when our four legged friends pass on. Had the same experience in May.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. My husky, wolf died 14 years ago and I still cry. It’s the love they feel and no doubt, your fur face is feeling your love and sending it right back. I love you and think you’re a great friend to critters. What a blessing to be a critter friend of yours?

      I am so sorry to hear this Jenny. They do have such an impact in our lives. Thank you for sharing this with me, and I am SO very sorry that I am only now finding it in the backlog of the website. My deepest apologies. Much much love to you!
