It's me meli

Welcome friends. So happy you made it.

Missing You.

Missing You.

One year ago we said our last goodbye to Charlie. Gave our last hugs and kisses. Shared our last laughs and shed our last tears with him. I can remember that day so vividly in my brain, that it feels like it was only yesterday.

His life was short, but man was it sweet. Charlie had a way of making people fall in love with him. He was able to put smiles on faces all over the world, and he didn’t even know it. People always say “my dog is my best friend.” Charlie was my BEST FRIEND. He made me feel safe. He made me feel loved. He was always there for me. I could tell him anything. He never ever failed to make me smile.

I always imagined Charlie an old dog running in our yard with our children, wondering when he was ever going to calm down. Life had other plans for him. I know he was brought into our lives for a reason. After my second miscarriage, I cried. I cried a lot. Charlie gave me hope. If I never was able to have children, I had Charlie, and that was the only thing that made me ok. I’m sure this was just one piece of the puzzle that put together his whole purpose.

His cancer was unexpected, and his chemotherapy was like a roller coaster of emotions. Every extra day we got with Charlie mattered. He got to be there for Aria’s first year of life, he got to give Ralphie a little guidance. He got to put his paw on Iris in my belly. These were such important milestones in our lives, and I’m so grateful Charlie was here.

When I look back to a year ago, I thought I would never be ok again. Each day got a little easier. And somewhere along the line the tears turned into laughs over silly memories. I’m ok. I missing you, but I’m ok. I’ve realized that you’re still with me, and always will be. ❤️

  1. Miss you Charlie!! I now have a chocolate lab that I can only hope is as good as girl as you were????????

  2. I have loved Charlie’s page for the last 18 months. We were away last year on vacation and naturally I happened to check Instagram. I really only follow a few pages. I was devastated to hear about Charlie. It made my heart hurt. Our sweet boy Hunter goes for surgery this coming Thursday for what we think is a routine surgery to remove a cancerous growth off of his tail. I pray that it’s successful and he makes it through safely with his tail intact. It never ceases to amaze me how much of our hearts they steal. Love and blessings to your family ????????

  3. Charlie will be always in my heart. He was so sweet and nice. I cannot forget him also if I knew him only from photos, videos and your words. I miss him and his adventures.

  4. My daughter and I walked the puppy up nashville walk in honor of Charlie. I Loved to see Charlie being his silly self and cried the day we all had to say goodbye.. it’s never easy. I’m balling my eyes out right now as I type this. My heart goes to you and your family! THANK YOU for always allowing us to be a part of Charlie’s life. ❤️❤️

  5. When our loved ones cross the horizon it seems our hearts will never heal, slowly the light shines thru and their spirit dwells forever in the heart that was once broken. ????❤️

  6. Dear Meli,
    If you only knew how much Charlie, helped me when I was grieving over my Scouty……If anyone had ever told me that one day I would truly love a “virtual dog” I would never have believed them. But Charlie transcended time and space. And it was your soulful and beautiful generosity that allowed that to happen. It is hard to believe that one year has passed…he was so lucky to have you and your family as his family. And I do believe that Charlie is still transcending time and space, and will always be with you❤️.

  7. We never got to meet Charlie but sure did enjoy the photos and video’s. But most of all it was the love your family shared with him. Charlie was such a special boy! ❤️❤️❤️

    Did it snow yesterday?
