Rising Above

Satori and Dog cropped and edited with frameSecond Life is an extension of my real life, but in so many ways it is an escape. Or, perhaps more accurately, a way to live out experiences that would be impossible otherwise.

Browsing at Kustom9, I happened to see something that made me stop. Not a dress or decor, but a little dog, the Diva Dog Shih Tzu by Black Bantam. A little dog that reminded me so much of our own Shih Tzu who died in 2014.

I doubt the creator ever thought that her lovely little Diva Dog would bring back so many memories, but it did. And when I made the purchase from the Gacha, do you know that I received the one that looked just like our little boy? I have to admit that I cried a little when I realized this.

Our little guy was such a sweet little dog. I can no longer cuddle him or comfort him, but I wanted to take a picture to honor him and all those other doggies that we have loved.

In Second Life we can do so much. For today, ¬†remembering so many good times, I chose to rise above the clouds in ChiMia’s High Fliers Chair with this little dog. I imagined holding our own little boy and showing him the sights, cuddling him close and enjoying a fun ride.

Here’s to the most loving little rescue dog that we could have ever imagined. I’ll see you again someday.
