Just had my beloved Bella die in my arms early this morning. We loved her so much! She was such a loving companion.

I am so sorry for Bella's passing. Our feline friends spend years training us and luring us in with their loving ways. She was fortunate to be so loved.

So, so sorry to hear. We lost our precious boy recently so I know how devastating it can be.

Our thoughts go out to your family.

There's a snake on the box!

Letterboxing in Palmyra, Missouri, over the weekend. Found a box in the crook of a tree. As I reached up, I pulled what I thought was a black vine aside only to have it move of its own accord. It turned out to be a 1 1/2 foot long rat snake. I think we startled each other as we both froze (after I'd jerked my hand back and moved backwards a couple of steps) and stared at each other a few moments before Mr Snake casually slithered away.

A good reminder to wear gloves when pulling boxes out of crevices, holes and removing bark. You never know what you might find. Also a good reminder to remain sharp and not get too focused on "Oooo, I found it!" and watch your surroundings.

Certainly got the ole heart pumping. :D

I was out with a friend.
She was so focused on reaching into a crevice to get the box that she put her other hand down on a slab to balance as she reached in and off balance.
The slab was covered with hundreds of slithery red somethings.
I stood there watching and wondering why the heck she didn't at least brush some of them out of the way.

No need to fast-forward to what happened next. It was fast as lightening when she realized what she had done.

Still makes me both laugh and have a "glad it wasn't me" moment.

I was reaching under a log for a box when I startled 3 or 4 baby rattlers. Yikes!

That is what scares me the most about starting this hobby. The snakes and spiders!

Give me a snake any day over a tick--at least I can see the snakes and they won't leave me with diseases. (Well, maybe not rattlers--yikes.)

Trail names

How many people have trail names that include their pet? Just wondering. Yesterday, we lost the last dog that was part of Tri-Colors Paws. The first one died last year, second earlier this year and now this one. Oh, it's been hard. I never gave it a thought that if you get all your dogs around the same time, they leave around the same time as well. *sniffle*

My cousin on AQ (who doesn’t post) uses her sweet dog’s name as her Trail name. I know the unconditional love of your dogs brought great joy. It’s hard. ❤️

Mine is based on my dog too! Foxy Roxy is my sweet girl! My husband suggested the Roald Dahl book, whom I especially love, as a pair to my girl.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I love mine to pieces and I know you will always miss your 4 pawed love. I was amazed how much healing my pup brought after the death of my previous girl.

I am so sorry! Loosing all 3 so close together must be very very hard! I lost one only kitty this year and it broke my heart! Your trailname is now your tribute to your buddies!

So sorry for your loss. I lost both of my fur babies within a year of each other. I miss them terribly every single day. My trail name is in honor of my sweet girl Marlee Sue. Our four legged kids are the purest form of love one will ever experience.

I had lost my last pack, 3 of them within 10 months of each other, all do to cancer. That was years ago and I have still not recovered, love them and miss them every day. That was before letterboxing, I picked up letterboxing in the dog free year between me losing the last one and getting Cricket. Now cricket is my signature stamp so if you’ve seen it, you can recognize me on the trail when I’m with Cricket.

So very sorry for your loss, they never stay around long enough.

So sorry for your loss - pets are part of our families, and it is so hard to lose them. My trailname is in memory of my horse, Brandi, and my cat, Sam. Both are gone now, but their hoof/paw prints appear every time I stamp a logbook.

Such wonderful support we have on here! ♥️
We, TCP and I, have had more losses then we’d like to count this year and are ready for the New Year to begin. Letterboxing has brought us closer and have helped us tremendously this summer overcome those sudden losses. Thank you all for your support and loving words. It means a lot.
Love this “family” we are apart of.
