More sad times.......

Okay.....I wasn't ready for this. We're never really ready to lose one of our furry friends, though.
Bridie and I have been through alot together....she was my bud and my best friend when a divorce came my way 10 years ago, and she was at my wedding last October when Ken and I got married. She loved him right away....
She cuddled with me and comforted me when thunderstorms were hitting all around us one summer night...(yup...I was the one that was scared)! She would sneak my coffee every chance she got....(never Kens...he drinks his black)...she likes hers with milk! If Ken made bread, you had to put it in the microwave to hide it! She was my counter-cruising, sock eating, best buddy ever....I loved her. She is the reason that my farm is named Kindred Spirit. She came to me almost 10 years ago...we will miss her terribly! Dragonmist Kindred Spirit....aka Bridie....
The Queen is dead...long live the Queen.


  1. I'm so sorry, Donna! Sounds like she lived a long life for a large breed, although that's little comfort I know. (((HUGS)))

  2. Sorry to hear about Bridie she was a lovely looking girl.

  3. Donna,

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I know how special some animals can be to our every day lives. Well, it seems wrong to even call them animals. Best Wishes.


  4. We too raise chickens and guinea fowl. Your blog popped up in my continual search for others who do the same. Today was a very sad day to find you but I am glad to join the others in expressing my sorrow for your loss. I cannot bear the thought of the day this will happen to my girl Slim. She is my "kindred spirit" and literally joined us through a hail of bullets when she was about 6 months old. I am thinking of you today and the difficult days ahead.

  5. (Big hug) I'm so sorry. It's never easy.

  6. Thank you, all, for your comments....animal people are all the same....we LOVE our "kindred spirits"...our furry or wooly or feathered counterparts. We are ALL lucky to share our lives with such special creatures!
