As many of you know, my sweet Nomar passed last week…
I posted a photo of him when I wrote my memorial (linked here).
In that memorial post was this photo of Nomar:
LOOK WHAT WAS ON MY DOORSTEP WHEN I RETURNED HOME!
I returned home today to find carnage on my front porch…
Clearly, the UPS guy had come and set a package there, as he always does.
–Our UPS guy is great and it isn’t his fault that he didn’t know that I now have demon destructor puppies…
This is what I saw:
I had no idea what was in the package but I figured it was probably now not in very good condition…
So, I rummaged around in the pile and found – nothing.
It was as if we had been sent an empty box!
But, as I searched further, I saw it.
Still in pristine condition was a transferred onto canvas print of the photo of Nomar… just sitting there, looking up at me from the grass where it had been tossed.
I couldn’t believe it!
I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT!
I couldn’t believe that the contents of the package, this lovely photo on canvas, was intact!
And, I couldn’t believe that a reader had done this for me!
How amazingly sweet and unexpected!
The only problem is that I don’t know who to thank!
I furiously looked through all the bits to find the return address.
All I could find was the name “Tony” and the word, ‘Nevada’.
Tony from Nevada, THANK YOU!
Sending that sweet and lovely gift of Nomar was such a joy to see!
And so fitting because no other dog of ours has had such an elegant photo ~ and the fact that Nomar was so quiet and unsung… well, this is PERFECT.
I have hung it and I give him an “atta boy, Nomar” every time I pass him.
Nomar has been given the regard he deserved.
TONY IN NEVADA?
If you are Tony or you know Tony, please contact me so I can thank you/him properly.
I’m so sorry that my derelict puppies ripped up your name.
I love this gift. Love it.
Thank you from the core of my heart…
Nomar would be proud.
