It was one year ago that Mom told me Olive’s story,
and I shared her story with you
Today is Olives birthday,
she would have been 2 yrs old
There are other pugs waiting for Mom and Dad at the Rainbow Bridge, but mom does not think about their birthdays or what day they left this earthly world behind. She has wonderful memories of the years in between that they had together, and those memories fill her heart.

McKenzie 12 yrs, Pugsley, 14 yrs (11 with mom & dad)
and Char Shu lived an amazing 17 yrs.
Little Olive’s life was short. Way too short. Mom loved her so and doesn’t know if it will ever stop hurting to think about Olive or see pictures of her sweet face, so she keeps her memory tucked away in a very special part of her heart. But when Olive’s birthday comes near, those memories surface . And Mom lets herself think about sweet little Olive and how much she was loved for the short time she was here.
Sometimes it is hard for me to know how to think about Olive. I wish I had known her, I was born the day after she arrived at Mom and Dad’s. I wish she didn’t have to leave so young, but I am here because Olive is not.
I came with an important mission - to help heal Mom’s broken heart. And now neither of us can imagine life without the other.
Sometimes - when I am extra naughty, Mom wonders how she can love me as much as she does, but I have Olive to thank for that.
I think Mom loves me extra hard because of Olive.
These pictures are of the shelves where the special memory boxes are. You can see Olive’s box on the center shelf between the two pug angels
We will never forget you Sweet Olive.
You can click on her name if you would like to read her story, but have a tissue handy.
And you can click here on my name, Greta,
If you would like to read how I came to heal mom’s heart.
Mom wants to send love and thanks to Stella Rose and her momma. A year ago they listened to our story with love in their hearts and gave mom the courage
to share Olive’s story with all of you.
