Where do I begin? It has been a long time since I've composed a diary entry. I'm not even sure if diaries are still being read and honored here at Dogster and Catster. Whether or not, I suppose it doesn't matter. I feel better for pouring my thoughts out on paper. Or on the computer, as mom is so "Old School".
so, where do I begin. I celebrated my 11th birthday in February, and that was quite an amazing and wonderful event, given that a Great Danes normal lifespan is 8-9 years. I beat the odds! Mom and dad noticed recently that I was slowing down, but that is okay. They slowed down with me. They took slower, shorter walks with me, let me take my time with my meals... I became more mellow. My Best Friend Lily continued to snuggle with me continuously. But, my pawrents noticed that I wasn't eating like I should; I picked at my food for 2 weeks, hardly eating, even though mom made me homemade chicken and rice which I LOVE! So she took me to the v.e.t. to figure out what was going on, and I'm afraid it was very bad news. :(
My X-Rays showed that my spleen was enlarged to 4 times its normal size and that I was bleeding internally. It was pushing against my stomach so I didn't want to eat.... I'd lost 11 pounds and my spleen would've ruptured within the week. So with that diagnosis, mom, dad and my human brother all decided and agreed what would be best for me, and that was to gently set me free. Well, at the time I didn't know what was going on. Everybody at the v.e.t.'s office was SO nice! They put a thingie in my arm and wrapped it up in a little heart bandage. I am loved! And was I excited to see my family there!! They laid out nice soft towels on the floor and everybody sat on the floor giving me kisses and hugs. The nice doctor then visited too, he takes such good care of me, and he spoke some soft words, and I gently went to sleep..... very gently.... and I woke up in a wondrous world of beautiful light, rainbows, sunflowers, moonbeams, music and FRIENDS! Long lost friends that I hadn't seen in a long time Bo!! My brother BO came bounding over to me! I am ecstatic! I Feel GOOD! I am healthy! Wow... this is a beautiful place... I see so many more Angels, there is my brother POO! Oh how I've missed my Angel family, and my friends here!
Holds back a tear and whispers, it is okay. I am okay. It is beautiful here. Please don't cry, mom, dad and family, Lily; I am okay. I miss you, but I am right here. (paws her heart) I am always in your hearts. I am healthy, young, pain free and froliciking at the Bridge again.
To all of you who have supported our family, we are deeply grateful. This was very sudden and was a terrible shock. Friends lift us high when we need it the most.
I love you all;

A stunned and heartfelt WOW!! What an honor to wake up to! I really am surprised being that mom doesn’t take me to Dogster very often at all these days, BOL BOL! Thank you HQ for this terrific honor!
I guess I’ll start by composing a diary entry… my first in nearly three years! My family and I took a break from Catster/Dogster following their cross country move in 2010 and then struggling through the pains of a very demanding new job. JOB?! Hmmmph. Dogster is waaaaay more important!
We started becoming active again only just recently…. Mainly for my sick brother, Poo. We’d forgotten what fun and how much support and love there is here. Poo has kind of taken the spotlight for all of us here, and that is okay. So I will write about him and say I love him so much and wish nothing more for him to be better. Unfortunately he won’t… so we are doing the best for him to keep him comfortable and happy, and to be sure he gets all of the nutrition he can get along with his medicine. I love Poo. Maybe you could stop by his page and say hi to him, I don’t mind :)
Goodness I AM stunned. I am on the front page, I have lots of Pup Pal requests, pmails and friends are sending me gifts. Thank you, friends, thank you Dogster! I love you all…. My sister Eve and my brother Poo taught me a very special word:
