Giselle RIP 29th Oct 2008

Giselle RIP 29th Oct 2008

It's been a tough week. I am heavily involved with animal rescue in LA. I received the sad news today that one of our rescue's dogs, Giselle, passed away this morning. We're not sure why but we think it's tied to medication she was given for a urinary tract infection.

She was a spirited black German Shepherd we rescued from a high-kill pound not a month ago. What we can take solace in is that Giselle was living in a foster home when she passed. She had wonderful people who were taking care of her and she was loved by them and their pack.

Giselle - RIP - say Hi to Naya for me at the Rainbow Bridge. Tell her I miss her.

A couple more songs that I listen and cry to.

The first song reminds me of how my husband is helping me through the loss of Naya. He wasn't a cat person, but he knew she meant the world to me and how devastating the loss is.

"Fix You" by Coldplay

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down on your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
If you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down on your face
And I...

Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you


This song feels like what I'd say to Naya.

"From Where You Are" by Lifehouse

So far away from where you are
These miles have torn us worlds apart
And I miss you
Yeah, I miss you
So far away from where you are
Standing underneath the stars
And I wish you were here

I miss the years that were erased
I miss the way the sunshine would light up your face
I miss all the little things I never thought that they’d mean everything to me
Yeah, I miss you
And I wish you were here

I feel the beating of your heart
I see the shadows of your face
Just know that wherever you are
Yeah, I miss you
And I wish you were here

I miss the years that were erased
I miss the way the sunshine would light up your face
I miss all the little things
I never thought that they’d mean everything to me
Yeah, I miss you
And I wish you were here

So far away from where you are
These miles have torn us worlds apart
And I miss you
Yeah, I miss you
And I wish you were here
