In a few days it will mark 3 years since our beloved Muffin passed on to the rainbow bridge. I still think of her: happy, funny memories of her long, healthy life. Often I am sure I see still her, a brief movement from the corner of my eye, or a feeling that she is there with me.
But tonight I believe she sent us a message. Let me explain. Many years ago we borrowed VHS camcorder for a few days and made a tape of Muffin and the bunny , Bashful J Cocoapuff. It had been packed away with some other stuff, it had not been seen for over 15 years. We’d always wondered where it went to , wishing we could see our Muffin in her youthful beauty and full of energy once again. And tonight was the night it would happen.
We were cleaning the front bedroom and moving some items, one a storage box with old VHS tapes , mostly TV shows we had taped. I took the box and decided to place the tapes on a shelf glancing at them as I stacked them. I was amazed as I looked at the spine of one to read “ Muffin and Bashful” !!!
Later I looked at the box and saw why we had never noticed this was the "lost" Muffin tape before. The outside of the box said “walk with us” on it spine and front. But tonight, near the anniversary of her passage to the bridge , Muffin was sending us a message, saying hello again, saying she is still here with us .
Seeing a young, vivacious Muffin again was so special, such an amazing gift!! She was maybe 3 or 4 years old when we made the tape, around the same ages of Loki, Maggie and Abby now. She was so beautiful, so playful, so much the Muffin that lives in my heart. And seeing sweet little Bashful bunny again was special too. He was a cute little guy. One shot shows Muffin gazing at him lovingly, its so sweet.
Perhaps one day we can transfer the tape to a DVD and figure out how to add a short clip to her page .
Thank you Muffin for sending us this message, to reassure us that you are still with us, and always will be with us. And I loved seeing you again, young and beautiful, my Muffin, forever loved. Forever and ever….

How wonderful to find a little treasure like this. I am so happy for you. I am also weeping cause I am at a stage where I can't even look at photos of my Alfie without losing it......
perhaps that's why it was in the box marked "walk with us"?
she walked with you here & is letting you know, she still walks with you in spirit
no matter how much time passes, we'll always miss those we love
