It was great to see the pictures of your handsome tuxie boy, BW.  May he rest in peace in whatever spot in the garden you choose for him.

I've been wanting to come post here and send you some extra <<<hugs>>>, BW.  Reading the things you wrote really moved me.   Cry  I'm sending much warmth and strength to you.  The photos of sweet Snoopy Sally are so sweet.  I want to smooch on that cute pink nosie.

Thank you Catbird and August. Snoopy and I both appreciate your kind wishes.   I was just out there digging, and then I somehow was not happy with the spot.  I could not see it from my window, and it seemed to be too close to the water even tho it is the same distance that Tommy Tom is, and I have never seen water come up anywhere near that spot.  Our little lake always stays where it belongs.

However, after digging half deep enough, I changed my mind and so now I have  dug out a few patio stones near the steps down from my rear stoop. And I have ripped out some of the enormous rosemary shrub/bush whatever you call it that had grown way out over the pavers, and believe that I have just enough room to bury him there beside the rosemary, on one side and my little stone patio on the other.  It gets lots of sun, and is right beside where I go down the steps.  If I want to, I can sit on the steps right beside where he is, and i can see the grave from my slider in the sunroom.  I will plant some pretty day lillies there.   He will be right alongside where  I feed the birds, ducks, etc.  He is  much closer to the sunroom where he spent so much time, and I like the spot, I just have to go back out when I have rested, maybe tomorrow and finish digging it deep enough.   I already dug enough for a whole grave, but in two different places, so it doesn't count and there is still more to do in the right spot.  Now my old bones are really tired, BUT  I have my plan!!
And he will be quite close to us all.  So I think he will like this spot, so close to his family, in the sunshine.  I Just hope I don't run into some really difficult roots. 
Thank you again for your kind messages.  You are such a comfort.  Bless you all.

 Thank you Soo.   You know Soo, the little cat that you have for your icon by your name, looks very similar to Snoopy, except I don't think that kitty has white on its face.  What is that little cats name?  That is not Wasabi, is it, I think you were holding Wasabi and he was a tabby, right??

Ah Soo, I just enlarged everything and I think now that the kitty in your icon is indeed Wasabi, when the photo was very tiny, it looked like a black and white tuxedo cat, but now that I enlarged it, I think I can see that it is a gray tabby that does look like your other lovely photos of Wasabi, such a precious, sweet looking kitty.

Thank you Ned.  BTW, I love your quotation you sign off with.
May I ask where it is from?    It certainly is so true.  If only we could understand it all, it might not hurt so much.

BW, it's from a British Scifi TV show called Doctor Who. Sadly, the actress who said it died last year of cancer, at just about the same time sweet Mooch died. That's why it was foremost in my mind, especially with my recent loss.

BW,
I sounds like you have the perfect spot for Snoopy Sally.  I don't know if you know this, but Rosemary is for remembrance.

"Throughout history the fragrant herb rosemary has always held a place of great esteem as the symbol of remembrance. Sprigs were laid at the grave of loved ones as a token of loyalty and commemoration. What better promise could be given to those we hold dear than the vow that they will never be forgotten?"

So, he will indeed be in the perfect spot!   Smiley

Mandy,
Oh my, that is wonderful, I had no idea. Well, these rosemary bushes have become enormous, totally enveloping the herb garden, and I am sure they will put more arms out over his grave eventually, unless I keep them trimmed.  Thank  you so much for telling me, it is lovely to know.  Soooo appropriate. An arm or two are already beginning to stretch out over Tommy Tom's grave just outside the edging.

Ned, thank you so much.  My son and I always watched Doctor Who together, a favorite program for many years.  Sorry the actress has passed on.   And my sympathy on your recent loss too.  Bless you.

Thank you Catwoods.   I have been sensing that Snoopy likes this location, if you believe in those things.   I just checked my work, and lo and behold, it is large enough and deep enough for one of those little cardboard caskets to fit, I do believe.  I could put everything, shroud and all in one of them.  I will think about that.  Now I am very tired again. All the digging really makes me feel my age.
A husband and wife goose couple came up into my yard and are totally perplexed about what in the world I am doing to THEIR patio where I feed them.   Paving stones strewn here and there, a big mound of dirt in the middle of it.  What in the world has possessed her, they are clearly thinking!!  What a mess!

Thank you again Catwoods.  Bless you.

I'm so glad you found a place that feels right ! It may not matter to them, but I think it helps us.

Snoopy Sally was gorgeous. Thanks so much for the pictures. I cremate all my loved ones, but that is such a personal thing. My former in-laws have a pet cemetery at their acreage where all their pets and some of their friend's pets have been buried. You know Snoopy best and I'm sure he will be happy with his final resting spot.
