So here's my story about the power of unconditional love and how this beautiful emotion can bring community together.
|Chachi's sweet smile|
What began as a possible herniated disk (the actual cause still unknown) had crippled her hind legs. Yet there was still hope, especially with the wonderful donation that the Ozzy Foundation had given to us to get Chachi her own wheel chariot from Eddie's Wheels. But tonight was the night that we just knew...we just knew that the hope that she still wanted to stay in her snowy white vessel was getting too difficult to withstand. Earlier in the day, I had asked Chachi to let us know whether she wanted to stay here (previously she kept communicating through the pet communicators that she wanted to stay) or if she was ready to transition to the Other side. I had asked her to please make it clear to us what she wanted and what would be in her highest good.

But even through the sleepless nights and this deep heartache, Dalmacio and I are in such deep gratitude. We are thankful to Ramsey and Buzz for asking us to adopt Chachi. We are so honored and still remember what Ramsey said over the phone: "we can't think of any better parents for Chachi than the two of you." Such sweet words that echo in my heart now...thank you Ramsey and Buzz for entrusting us to create a loving home for her.
We are grateful to alot of beautiful souls. For the continuous healing energy & monetary support from our family and loving support from friends...for Sandy Smith with her special gift to communicate with Chachi along with her reference to Evey Gold who consulted with us on natural remedies and for introducing us to two wonderful specialists: Pam Holt who gave Chachi the most relaxing massage ever and Suzanne Weed who gave Chachi Acuscope therapy the last 2 weeks of her life. To Laurie Reyon for her spiritual insight and gift to communicate with Chachi. To the Ozzy Foundation (as mentioned above) for their loving generosity to donate money to get Chachi a wheelchair. To my friend, Renee Stonehocker from Capitol Drugs for her suggestions on homeopathics. To Jennifer Kelly with her suggestions on essential oils. To the wonderful staff at the Holistic Vet Center for their genuine support and care, as well as Veterinary Specialists of the Valley who also helped us throughout Chachi's health issues and for helping to elevate Chachi to her next transition. To Dartagnia & Star for holding the healing space for their sister. It was truly amazing that these beings who normally show self-love, gave unconditional love to Chach and gave her "sniff" kisses. Star even slept out in the livingroom for the last few days to keep Chachi company at night (normally Star is next to my feet at night).
I know it's a long list of people to thank - just goes to show how truly uplifting it can be when we raise the vibration high, pay it forward and open ourselves to the support of community. I also wanted to share this knowledge of amazing references who helped us through all of this. Perhaps it could help someone else with their furry kids like it did with us.
