What I Want to Do:



Welcome GraphicsMystic and I met on July 21, 2011. It was, as they say... LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! Oh... what a beauty she was! ha haa! She was the most pathetic little thing I ever saw and had the goofiest little smile any little furbaby could ever have,too, ha haa! BUT... TO ME... SHE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL, SHE TOOK MY BREATH AWAY! She was skinny and her hair was thick and long, she was NOT pretty at all. But the minute I held her in my arms and she put her little face in my neck, I was lost! She was the ONE! She stole my heart right from my chest! Oh, she's a little thief, too! UH-OH! Now what? ha haa! She looked right into my eye's and I said to her, "Mystic... you will NEVER be hurt again. Not in this life time, not while I'm your MaMa. You will always be SAFE with me"! And, I meant every word I said to her!
She was 6 years old when I adopted her and one day away from being euthanized! Were they kidding? WHY? HOW? She is the sweetest gentlest, kindest little soul I've ever known! I just couldn't understand how and/or why anyone could or would ever consider killing this little furbaby! She's such a GEM! She's so good, she listens to everything and has never had to even have a firm voice directed at her. Of course... WE bonded immediately, ha haa! She's my BEST GIRLFRIEND, ha haa! Where I go... she goes, too! If you see me, you will see her! WHY? JUST BECAUSE! There's no other reason, ha haa! She's a happy, happy girl now and she's going to stay that way as long as she can! Just because she's 9 yrs. old now... that doesn't mean anything. NOPE! She still thinks she's a puppy and still plays like one! ha haa!
Her breed, Chinese Crested PowderPuffs, live to be, on the average, 12 years old. But... I'm not going to worry about that until her time comes! We're going to enjoy each other for as long as we can and for as long as we have each other! No one can say how long, for sure, any one will be with us... so we're not going to worry about that! So... anyway... If you see me, you'll see her, too! ha haa! And... I do change her picture for every holiday AND in between, too! WHY? JUST B/C I LOVE HER! SHE'S JUST TOO BEAUTIFUL NOT TO, THAT'S ALL! ENJOY HER... PLEASE! I DO!
August 2014
                                     16th,  2014, my husband, Phil went to Heaven. The Angels came to meet him and in the quiet evening hours, while Mystic was resting her head on his leg and I was holding him in my arms, his heart stopped beating but I didn't give it back to him. You see, he gave it to me long ago and it was mine, he said it would ALWAYS be mine, and it always has been and always will be. I keep it in a very safe place, right inside of my heart, where it has no place to go, but up to Heaven... when it's time for us to meet again.

 I love you, Phil... and I'll see you when the Angels come for me! God will let me know when that time is, just like He let you know. Mystic misses you so much already. I'm sure you saw that she slept on YOUR pillow! For the 1st time ever, she didn't sleep with me. Yep, she misses you already!
Thank you, Phil, for being the man that you were and treating me like the woman I wasn't... the QUEEN of the UNIVERSE! YOU made me feel special every day of my life! (well... maybe not everyday, ha haa). I'll see you when it's time! I LOVE YOU AND ALWAYS HAVE!
Hugs, Love and Kisses, Barbara & Mystic, too!

She would just sit in front of it or sit in it. It had been put in the corner when the hospital bed was brought in for Phil. We were going to throw the chair out b/c it was old and broken. When Phil passed and the chair was still in the corner, Mystic wanted to get in it, but couldn't, not the way it was. So... I moved it back to where it had been. After I 'fixed' it and she could get in it... she stayed there for hours! I WAS NOT GETTING RID OF THAT CHAIR! IT WAS HERS THEN, FOREVER IF SHE WANTED IT! When she was done sitting in it... she sat in front of it and wouldn't let anyone near it. YEP... IT'S HER CHAIR NOW!

She has been very depressed and the only thing she has been doing was guarding her PaPa's chair. She's either been sitting in front of it or sitting in it! I've been very worried about her, but she seems to be better today! I'm very happy about that! She woke up today more like her happy little self!
