I Made Doggie Of The Day!

Woohoo! I have to bark this separate entry about the honor Dogster bestowed on me.
**********Doggie of the Day**********

I ran in circles like a dogvish, flew into a big tree limb at the corner of Milk Bone and Beef Jerky here at the Bridge...and almost hyperventilated.

Yes, I was THAT excited about this special award.
For an angel doggie like me, this award is even more s-p-e-c-i-a-l. Yes, Sir!

Thank you, Dogster Team. You made me feel like a young pup again.
My hoomin burst into tears with joy, and no chewy could stop it for a while.

I will have to carry my new piccies under my wings now, so I can show them to everyone. Yay!

Flying off for more fun...
The Luckman


The DOGSTER Furmily is the BEST!

A big, woofy hug for everyone on Dogster. Even those, who do not know me - yet.
Hey, even for the Kittehs on Catster. ;-)

I am so happy to be part of this big furmily. It's the next best thing to my furmily at home.
Yes, I can say that, because I know that my hoomins understand.

One would think that here at the Rainbow Bridge it would be a piece of cake to have access to the magic box to reply to nice mail and get to all announcements.
Oh nooo...there are some little angel furballs who hog the puters constantly. There is actually a particular angel furbie gang, who kidnap the to bark.

Anypoo, my hoomin Mama and her constant puter problems came to an instant still stand, when the "not-so-magic" box broke down. Howl, howl! (That were my Mama's sounds...kind of, haha). So I was out of luck there, too.
On Patrick's Day she got a new cyber box. But I had been without any access to the invisible grid.

Sooo, dearest Furbies, thank Y'all for all the congrats and greetings for my birthday, anniversary and Dog of the Day ( I am Superdog - Woof) honors. I am humbled and incredibly happy about such display or furiendship and thoughtfulness.
The special piccies I received only top all the previous. Thank you woofy much. I almost wagged my tail off!

DOGSTER, You Rock! Dawgies, you make Dogster rock!

Yeah, and the Kittehs make Catster rock. Don't want to leave anyone out.

Love You All,
Your happy angel pal


One Year At The Bridge!

Woof! Today is my first yahrzeit/anniversary at the Bridge. Holy Milk Bone, that time went by fast!

I know that my furmily is thinking of me today (I can feel it) and Mama is crying (I can smell her tears), but I want everyone to be happy for me. Now I have a sorrow and pain free life!

Enjoy your memories of me, as I enjoy thinking of every minute I spent with each of you. I will always stay close to you - in your heart. And if you sometimes feel a tiny little headache, that might have been me, giving you a not so gentle head bonk.
You know are all sheep and I am the herding dog.

I have had a great time since I came to the Bridge!
So many wonderful furries of all kinds here. So many to herd, haha! Yeah, once a control freak, always a control freak. Can't do nothin' about that one.

Seriously, the Bridge is a place made in Heaven (no pun intended). We all get along great. And it is sooo beautiful here.

I have been trying out my green thumb (uh, whatcha call it? green digit?) and buried various milk bones in all kinds of special mixes of soil to grow a Milk Bone Tree and start a business. Well...needless to say, it has not worked out yet. I don't know whether it is simply impossible, or if the crux is that little pug, who I caught digging up some bones??!

Maybe I have to stick to my Officer In Control Of Everything job. I love it dearly.

So, watch out all you flying furries, Officer Lucky is on patrol!


Is This A Fleaspiracy?

Oh my! What happened? Who left all these fleas on my page, which goobered up the display?
Is it a Fleaspiracy?
A stoopid game?

I bet it was my Katzie brother Nogie...he is always up to teasing me. Even now that I am at the Bridge.
He's just lucky (nah, that would be me!) that he is older than I am, because I still have to be nice to Mr. Methusalem.

Yeah, watching those fleas, I do believe I can hear a muffled Meow!
What should I do? Call Dogster to send the Flea Busters? Terminate them myself?

Since I am a herding dog, I should round them up, make them stand in line and pawprint them. Where is my Dad's cowboy hat? YEEHAW!

Gosh, look at those little bitty feet! Maybe I just put glue on my page, and when they get stuck then all the display problems go away. I definitely need a holding cell for them!

If I don't get in control of these annoying, little blood suckers soon, Mama will have a hiffy fit when she sees the page booboo.

Officer Lucky will take a few minutes now to have a meeting with himself and decide on the appropriate action for this dilemma.


A Very Different Kind Of Katz!

[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

Now this is the sweetest thing, I have ever heard about a Katz...making Angel Wings not only for her Rainbow Mousers but also for barkers like me!

Just shortly after delivering my ♥ wings ♥, Lady informed me that she was not the true Wing-Meister but had been my Aide de Wings and dispawtcher. And...that it was Willow. Rainbow Bridge, a Katz (!), who had pawsifactured my beautiful flight extensions.

I was completely woofless for a moment. Who would have thunken that I would receive such a special treat, not only from but also made by a fur ball of the Miezekatzen kind? Not me...not weeks ago anyway, when Mickey Blue Eyes and I were still chasing (playfully) our housekatz Nogie and those semi-feral outlaw relatives that Mama had adopted! It is fun, no matter what other poopsers say...even here

Soon, I learned that Willow has made wings for many Catster and Dogster angels...since she belongs to some kind of WingMaker Guild at the Rainbow Bridge.

Woof you so very much, my dear Willow! Please meow our regards on to your Mom. I fluff my wings every day, so they stay nice and purrfect for all my future excursions. LIFE IS WONDERFUL AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE - thanks to all you Furiends here!


A Fairy Delivered My W-I-N-G-S!

This has been the best day, since I arrived at the Rainbow Bridge. I am so excited, I can't stand still! I am wiggly like a bunny on too much caffeine.

My Mom picked up my wings today!!! OMD...what a wonderful gift.
They are so white, so soft, sooo - oh, I am simply out of woofs over this. I will never chase a bird again! Now I know, how delicate those wings are.

Mommy was all boohoo when she saw me with my wings. I gave her an "Angel Hug".

We are so grateful to have found such incredible furry people and their can openers like Lady (Over The Rainbow Bridge) and her Mommy Julie, whom we can't thank enough for making my wings possible!

Now I can fly around any place, and whenever Mommy and Dad need me, I can go visit them in a heartbeat and give them Angel Hugs. They don't see me but feel me. And of course, they know that I am still the old herding dog, who can't stop supervising his family.

Today I KNOW I can fly!

Big furry hug for ♥ ♥ ♥Lady♥ ♥ ♥ and her Mommy.


I Believe I Can Fly!

I am soooo excited!

A very nice ♥ doggie and her Mommy ♥ will be delivering Wings to me very soon. How much better can it get? This will be so great!

Once I have gotten used to them, I will fly around and visit everyone. Even my Mom and Dad and my step-sibs...but in their dreams.

Mom used to dream about being able to fly and told me about that. She said it felt so real in her dreams. Soon I will know.

It is so wonderful that there are such great furriends and their hoomins here on Dogster, who do nice things like Wings Delivery! I am so glad that my sibs and I are members here!


Easter at the Rainbow Bridge

April 5th 2010 12:09 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Oh my! I have been here somewhat over a month, and do not know whether it feels like yesterday that I arrived here or much longer ago. I miss my home and my family and think of them often. I watch them from here and they know I am still "supervising" everything they do and love them from a distance. So do they.

Here at the Bridge it is so beautiful and everything smells so incredibly good. There are flowers all over the place right now. Must have been a special delivery from the Easter Bunny, ha, ha. Yes, we have them hopping around here, too!!! Can you believe it? And we are allowed to chase them...a little. There were Easter Eggs hidden everywhere. Some looked like "chocolate" but of course were made of something different. Heeello, we know better! All the digging was fun! The katzen had little Easter mice as hidden gifts (not sure how much mouse angels liked that, but we are all very tolerant here!).

Easter was great here at the Bridge. We had a bunch of newcomers, who were welcomed by everyone with much love. Some of us already had anniversaries, so only more reasons to celebrate. Everything here is nothing but wonderful. We are like a very healthy and happy, huge family.

All the other little katz and dog angels, I have met here, are very, very nice. There are other angels, too. All kinds of creatures. I know that my Mom once said that she only wants to go where her furry kids will go in another I know that she will show up here one day. Hopefully with Dad, but I want both to take a long time to do so. Time is different up here, so it doesn't matter to me.

Mom talks to me sometimes. She told me that someone will make wings for me. Woof! I can't wait to receive them! I love to swim - but to have my own wings would be extra special. I will treat them well and keep them clean. I guess, rolling in the mud is a different story then, huh?

Red River Willie, my hunting mule brother, is shnarfing down all the new grass in the pasture again. I am watching him from up here and try to whisper in his long ears to slow down. Don't want him to look like a barrel!

Mickey Blue Eyes, my buddy, feels lonely at home but has a good time when he goes over to play with the cousins. I know that Mom will convince Dad that Mickey needs a new playmate and that is more than fine with me. I want him happy. Of course, I still clean his Oehrchen (ears), but only while he is sleeping. He smiles in his sleep. :-)

Nogie, my katz brother is the oldest fur ball (15 years) in the house now. He will have to take over and keep Mick under control. I am sure he's got a plan already. He is so smart.

Greetings from the Angel Place,


A month has passed...

April 2nd 2010 11:23 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

It's been a day over a month that Lucky left us. It is much quieter in our home now and there is no doubt that Mickey is still feeling the loss, too.
However, Lucky is not far, because we had him cremated and he is back with us now. We cannot bury our furry friends on the property here for different reasons, so the cremation was the only alternative to us.

I want to plant a dogwood for Lucky in our yard this spring, and hope it will grow as nicely as they did on our old property in Virginia.

Some time later this year, we want Mickey to have another buddy to play with so he won't stay alone. We hope to find another blue merle Aussie mix to rescue, just as we did with Lucky and Mickey. They are more than a handful especially when younger, but we have fallen in love with those bundles of energy and want to improve the lack of daily exercise by getting a fence on our new property, so letting them rumble around will be easier and safer off leash.

In the weeks and months to come, I will go through more boxes that need unpacking (still!) and look for old non-digital versions of photos of our dear Lucky to add to the gallery and have a photo book made.

I am sure that Lucky is still "herding" us. There are moments, when it feels like he is right here. Must be the lasting impression of his paw print in our hearts!


To My Best Friend - a poem by John Quealy

The day they laid you down to sleep
I prayed to the Lord, your soul he'll keep
Until the appointed day and time
when together we'll meet, and all will be fine

With all God's creatures great and small
go run and play now, have a ball
No more aches, and no more pain
just bright sunshine, no more rain

Rest in peace, for now best friend
cradled in God's arms to the end
Dream of that special day and time
when we'll meet at the Bridge one last time

Although we'll be separated for a long time
we'll be together then and all will be fine
We'll cross Rainbow Bridge side by side
with a soft warm feeling deep down inside

Once again then, all will be fine
we're together forever till the end of time .
