National Pet Memorial Day #SundaySelfie

In honor of National Pet Memorial Day, Angel Truffles is joining the Sunday Selfies blog hop this week.

The famous Dr. Seuss quote that I added to her picture is one of my favorites, yet in all honesty I'm just not there yet. I still can't accept that she's gone and don't think I will for a very long time.


About a month ago I entered a contest by two of my favorite authors, Joyce and Jim Lavene, to name the pet characters in their upcoming book A Dickens of a Murder. Not only was Truffles chosen as the tortie in the book, her character is on the cover that was just revealed this week, and I've been told that she's very special to the story as well. As a Christmas and Dickens fanatic, I just can't even begin to express how special this book is going to be to me.


A Dickens of a Murder will be released on November 3rd, but you can pre-order today!

  1. What a wonderful tribute to Truffles to have her immortalized in this way. We did not know this was National Pet Memorial Day, or Mom would have featured one of our angels. We know Truffles will remain in your heart always no matter how much time passes. Thanks for always being part of our blog hop.

  3. Wonderful quote from Dr Seuss. It is easy to agree with it, but hard to follow when you are sad.

  8. That is such a special way to remember Angel Truffles.
    It is a wonderful wise quote from Dr Suess, but even after more than 2 years I am not there yet either. Closer I suppose but definitely no where near ready yet.

  9. Such a great quote. We wish with all of our hearts that Truffles did not have to go, but then there would never be you, Mudpie. We have to look for the good in all and appreciate what was... Purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey kitties

  10. It takes a long time and there's no hurry. We all grieve in our own way. It will be two years since I lost Pip (our Yorkie who started the blog) in October and I still have my moments where I miss him so much and just can't believe he is gone.

  15. So cool to have Angel Truffles in a new series - what an honor! I just might have to start (another) new series!! Beautiful quote; It takes time to heal, even if one has several fur babies when losing the one most attached to. Her love is in your heart and always will be, and the pain will subside; will pray for you! Blessings!
