Two Years

Can’t believe it has been two years.  Mum still thinks about me every day and talks to me every day.  For the most she smiles and remembers our time with warmth and love, although the ache in her heart never quite goes away. I think that is something that she will need to get used to.

Mum misses feeling my presence the way she did in those first 6 months.  I still send her signs but being human she can’t help but doubt them.  Like, just now as she writes this for me, an ad comes on the TV for “Magnum 5 Kisses”!

I’m not around here much anymore, too many exciting things to do in my new life.  But I see the pain and heartbreak as others go through similar journeys and just wanted to remind everyone of our motto when we were on this journey – “dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today“.  For the most part we lived this motto and despite some of the typically human regrets my mum has we know that we made the most of our extra time together. So, I couldn’t help myself and have reposted the video mum put together for me after 6 months of missing me 🙂


Love and kisses

Spirit Magnum




About princess

Almost 10 year old loyal and courageous rottie! 30 May 2002 to 5 May 2012 Lost her leg to osteosarcoma on 1st Sep 2011 and did 6 rounds of chemo with carboplatin. 3 lung mets found in Mar 2012 and 1 month of Palladia done before it was stopped due to GI issues. But it was metastasis to the back right hip that finally took our little girl on 5th May 2012. She was happy, contented, relaxed and very loved when she peacefully slipped away in her mum's loving arms.

    Magnum, how can two years possibly go by so quickly? We feel your presence here each and every day, and even moreso when your mum stops by the Forums to share her wisdom, support and your amazing story with newcomers to the three-legged journey.

    You touched us when you first arrived here, and although you’ve left this earth, your spirit has never left our community and it never will. We miss you so much but keep you very, very close in our hearts, always. Two years went by in the blink of an eye.

    Your Mum is a very special lady, but you knew that! She gave a very special and generous gift to the community today in your honor, and we are forever grateful for her thoughtful support. As soon as we get to our email later today we will send her a big hug but meanwhile we wanted to let you know that the Tripawds Nation will continue being there for others thanks to her generous support and your inspawrational story.

    Love you sweet pup. Hoppy Angelversary!

    That is a beautiful tribute. What a beautiful boy! I don’t think you could have picked a more perfect song. “dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today“ absolutely beautiful.
