Bogeysattvah now sits on my lap. Bogeysattvah whose name was inspired by the need to have love and compassion with bogeys on the golf course, as well as the course of life, returned as I requested four months after Templeton died. As Templeton made her shift, I asked that I recognize her spirit the week of my birthday.
Along came May and I began to search for her. I listened until one day my heart recognized her. My heart, unaccustomed to leaping much back then, immediately leapt though my head said, "Wait, she's a he this time."
Bogey's now been with us four years and I periodically still find some little behavior that's Templeton's.
It's said life comes full circle. Templeton, Bogey and I would agree. We sit here knowing, feeling, seeing and experiencing grace, beauty and love.

I consider my pets destined to be mine and me theirs. What about yours? Is your pet destined to be yours and you theirs?
Mine and Me call this Good News.
