Monday Mischief~Remains To Be Seen







Three months ago my very best friend Sue passes away. She had a very small family and I was like a daughter to her. After she passed and I met her brother John at the Humane Society to bust her dog and cat out of jail he said to me “I don’t know what I am going to do with Sue”, “she didn’t tell me what she wanted done after she passed”. I told him that I wanted to take her animals remains and spread them on my property so they were with someone who loved them. I then suggested that he have Sue cremated and I would take her remains and put them with all her animals and I would spread them all in spots that are very special to me so I can go to those spots and have my peaceful time with my friend and her pets. During the 24 years that we were friends many animals came into her life and spent their whole life with her until their end. She was a dog and cat lover and gave them the best live they could ask for. Her fur children were: Missy, Bucky, Pepper, Bicky, Mickey, Elliott,  Stewie, Ray and Oscar. 

A couple weeks ago I met John at the funeral home and picked up Sue in her car that she left me when she passed. She was with me again riding shotgun instead of driving this time.

Hang on Sue your going for a ride.

When I posted this photo on Facebook a couple people said “don’t let Gambler get a hold of her”. I was like “what” Gambler, he wouldn’t do such a thing. Sue was safe as she was in a tin that was put high on the shelf.

Until yesterday when I finally decided to combine Sue with all her pets. It was time they were all together again as today is what would of been Sue’s 68th Birthday. It was time to spread her and her fur children in one of my special spots for her Birthday.

Sue and her fur children.

I removed everyone and mixed them up and put them back into a couple of different packages to be spread in different places. I had my first little package and I put it in the pail that I mixed them all up in and set it on the floor in the kitchen. I have ADD and thought I needed to water the plant in the same room where I just was so I went in and watered the plant.

The mixing pail that had the little bag of remains in.

I come back into the other room and John comes walking over and said “Is Gambler suppose to have this”?

The remains.

The remains.



Remains spread on Glory's pillow.

Gambler grabbed the bag, went on Glory’s pillow and started to rip it open. John heard him and checked on him and this is what he saw minus the bag. He thought he was being helpful by spreading the remains in the house, guess he thought I wanted her in the house with us. He was right I wanted her in the house with us but I had already put the remains in a little urn to keep in the house not the real Macoy laying on my floor.

My special spot that I wanted to lay Sue and her fur children to rest is on my bother’s and my land where we laid our dad and mom to rest. This is one of my peaceful places I go when I need to collect myself and be by my loved ones. Sue was there for me when my dad and mom died so I thought she needed to be with them now.

RIP Sue & Fur Children.

RIP Sue & Fur Children.

Forasmuch as it hath pleased Almighty God of his great mercy to take unto himself the soul of our dear brother here departed, we therefore commit his body to the ground; earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life, through our Lord Jesus Christ; who shall change our vile body, that it may be like unto his glorious body, according to the mighty working, whereby he is able to subdue all things to himself.

So in the end my friends were right and Gambler got into Sue…..A mischief maker indeed.

    Hi Y’all,

    Such sad mischief. My Human says sometimes things happen for a reason that is beyond our ability to understand…hopefully this was one of those times.

    Sorry we haven’t been around much, but the Humans are super busy this time of year and my Human Mama has been suffering from migraine, so we’ve been missin’ out.

    Y’all come by now,

    oh boy… Gambler….that’s hard to top. but I like the idea of your special spot. It’s great to have a place what’s just for you and what you can visit whenever you want. Have a great monday :o)

    Good grief…that Gambler, Miss JoAnn! What will you do with him? BOL I think what you did for Sue and her animals was just wonderful. They are now together for eternity and in a peaceful place out in nature. A lovely tribute.

    I didn’t know your friend Sue but I’ll bet she got a HUGE chuckle out of this. Good boy Gambler for diffusing a sad moment with a little G$ mischief! Xoxo

    I am sorry about the loss of your good friend, but the thought of Gambler running off with the bag brought a smile to my lips. Oh, the innocence of dogs. Good thing he didn’t grab and shake vigorously!

    My sister Bailie would do something like that in a heartbeat. What a special day for you and your friend and how wonderful for you to have a place for her to be with all her pets.

    Oh dear…..! I think Gambler might have thought you needed a laugh when doing that sad task! Or he thought they needed a last adventure before being laid to rest?
    What a wonderful thing you did for Sue and her pets, and a perfect time on her birthday. I’m sure she is looking down with a smile now!

    Such sad news, but what you have done for your friend is so very lovely. Gambler, lol, ohh Gambler… I think you were right, he was just trying to help!

    I’m sure she was laughing when Gambler went and got her!!! No doubt! There are no coincidences! Lol. Great mischief for sure.

      Don’t feel bad at all. I was laughing also when I flung her out into the yard off of Glory’s bed. In times like this you need to find the humor. Sue would be laughing. I didn’t know how people would take this post and I’m glad I could make someone laugh. Thanks for stopping by.

    I’m sure that your friend looked down and giggled at the mischief. As a dog lover, she would understand. What a special thing that you did for her and her pets. You are a great friend.

    Such a beautiful way and place to put loved ones remains. I love the thought of them all being in one place together where you can go to be with them all.

    You are such a special friend and I’m sure Gambler thought he was just helping you out! I’m sure your friend got a laugh out of it! Hugs XOXOXO
