PRINCE IS HOME


Last Thursday I got Prince's ashes back, it was the weirdest feeling when I picked up the casket for the first time ~ I really don't know how to describe it. I think it was the final stage of accepting he really is gone from this world. It was hard and a real struggle for the first day or two. Once I got over seeing my 28kg boy in this little rimu box, I found it very comforting knowing he was back home with us.

In the photo above you will see a beautiful crystal with a photo of Prince and Summer lasered into it on top of the casket. This was given to me by a very good friend a few years ago, it is something I have always loved but now treasure.

Below is a photo of the plaque, for those of you that can't read it, it says:
PRINCE
Cherished Best Mate
Loved & Adored
1.11.2004 - 30.4.2010
These are some of the cards we received and a lovely bouquet of flowers I was given last week by a friend that lives out of town.



All of the comments we have received on our blog and the emails that have come in since Prince's passing have been very overwhelming. I want to thank each and every one of you for your kind words and support, please take this as a personal thank you.
I have learnt such a lot over the past few weeks and months. I was going to list the things I have learnt but there are way too many. The main thing I have learnt is what it is like to have your very best friend slowly taken away from you, how we fight with everything we can to save them but sometimes have to face reality and realise there is nothing that we can do to make them well again. I had to do what I knew in my heart was best for Prince, it was the hardest decision I have ever had to make but it was the right one. Keeping him here with me for any longer would have been selfish.
Here at Team Husky our lives will never be the same but we are, day by day, moving on ~ we have to. It is hard but we make baby steps every day, we have so many happy memories that help us get through and make us stronger.
Please give your fur-babies big hugs and kisses from us and cherish every moment you have with them.
Aleeya, Summer, Sesuk & Kodiak

The way he touched your life and your heart will be with you until you meet again -

He lives on with the others surrounding you now and those yet to come!

It hurts -

But love usually does in some fashion - yet 'hurt' doesn't always have to have the negative feeling attached to it -

As Barbaro's Owner said 'Grief is the price we pay for love'

Our thoughts are with you - please give him a pat for us!

Hugz&Khysses,
Khyra and Her Mom

What a beautiful memorial. We know all too well the pain of losing that special pal, but do know that the tears are slowly lessened and the smiles come as it becomes easier to remember all of the good times. I never say the pain goes away 100%, but it is lessened by those great memories.

We continue to think of you in these trying times.

Prince's final resting spot is beautiful. We're glad he's home again.

I live in Kentucky, USA and I love to read your blog I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Prince. He was a beatiful boy and I know you have many, many cherished memories of him. Not to mention, the little Demon, who is just handsome. Know that Husky lovers from all over share in your grief and loss. I am happy he is back home. When I lose one of my beloved ones, it is a comfort to get them back where they belong.

I just found your blog. I was visiting with Maxdog's memorial and followed his link to you. I am so very sorry about your loss. There are no words that I can give to you to ease your pain, I know, but please know that you aren't alone in your grief.

That is so beautiful!! Mom and dad keeps all the urns with the ashes of the fur babies who have gone to the bridge on our fireplace. There are 4 now. It is the most difficult decision they make for us, but they do it out of pure love.

We are sending lots and lots of hugs your way.
