Rotties and Notties
Royal Minutes from Holding Court.....
Angel Foxie has entered her throne room to hold court for her loyal, loving Rottie and Nottie subjects.:-h:-h:-h She waves and throws tons of kisses,:xo::xo::xo::xo::xo: Everyone comes forth to kiss her silver paws......
Todays Royal subjects seeking answers about her life are Thunder, Max, Ginger and Zadie. They have ask her the following questions.....
1. Did she have skin kids to live with? How many?
2. Did she like water? Baths? Swimming?
3. Where was her favorite walk while on earth?
There were 2 skin kids. Oldest was a boy already been in college, 2 yrs. The youngest was a girl. She graduated high school the same time, I came to live with Momma. Then Both of them were in college. Rarely around.... They did let me play softball with them. I was always the outfielder. Momma said, I was her Empty Nest Baby!!!!! Later in my life: We had grandbabies.... 2 of them, a girl and then a boy. They were 6 and 3 when I went to the Bridge. I loved their visits and playtime with me. I was very gentle with them. We played harder as they grew....I miss them as much as they miss me!
I loved WATER!!!!! I wasn't to crazy about my type of shampoo... That's another story.... I was a Fantastic Swimmer. 10 m from where I spent my whole life is a big lake. Momma would take me with her... Sometimes, Momma would fish and I'd hunt and play in the water. I really liked it when we took our swimming stuff along. I loved to swim the 1st. time I tried it!!!! Swimming was the VERY BEST when other children would show up at the lake. They all loved me cuz, I'd play water polo with them. Ride on the tire tube. I'd swim and swim and swim... until I'd exhaust myself! Momma always had to watch and make me come rest ...I was never afraid of deep water. Loved to chase ducks and geese off the marshy wetlands at the ranch...Baby and I did that together. Baby never went to the lake...She never got over her fear of being thrown from a moving auto when dumped in the country. She would have major anxiety attacks when forced to ride. So we just didn't do that.... Momma had a big hot tub. Several times, I jumped right in it ... It was winter, she was in there. I wanted a SWIM!!! Guess what? She turned the temperature down on the Hot tub and let me swim away...
It was Pawsome!!!!!
My favorite walks were anywhere across our open prairies.... as long as Momma walked with me. I usually didn't walk... I ran, ran and ran... I'd zig and zag ... looking,sniffing,trailing and hunting... Sometimes, I'd walk home....Takes alot of space for beef cattle. I always had plenty of land to explore....When my Momma was real sick and in lots of pain.... then I quieted right down. I helped her get through all her troubles by assisting her. I walked really slow so she would just keep moving and trying to walk. I'd help her with her rehab. theraphy. I just loved on her day and night..... slowly her body healed up. I chased away the big bad blues that attack her while taking so much nasty medicine. When she'd walk the floors at night not able to sleep. I'd get up and keep track of Momma. I was Momma's constant companion my whole life.
Loyal subjects thank you for coming to see me today. I believe, I've answered all your questions. Now, as Ruler of the Rotties and Notties for the week: I must attend to other Royal Duties. Angel Foxie throws kisses as she leaves her court.

I was so surprised to open my p-mail and discover: I was chosen to be RULER OF THE WEEK (SEPT.12-18TH) OF THE "ROTTIES RULE GROUP". Yep, real surprised.... Who me????? Not a drop of Rottie in me. I'm not even Black and Tan like most of them. My two fursissies are both Black and Tan...(If we stretch them both...they could pass for a Rottie in a pinch.) Well, maybe not???? How do you make a mini doxie look like a Rottie????Of course, I am silver,gray and brindle in coloring.... No even close. Except, Fox Terriers really have some BIG Teeth!(I had perfect teeth until I chipped 1 playing chase with the vacuum cleaner. When I was older the Fur Doc had to take that toopher out.)Piece of Cake! Try wearing a Cast for a broken leg all through a wet springy calving season. There was a challenge!
Actually the group is Rotties and Notties. There are alot of Us who admire the Rotties, but sure don't look like one...We are members too! What a Terrific Group of Furpals......
I want to Thank the whole group for being chosen your leader for the week. Thank you so much for All the p-mails and pressies. I LOVE THEM ALL!!!!!
What FUN...as one of my duties for the week....I must answer questions about me. Anything my subjects would like to know about me. No question too big or too small to answer. It's pawsome and awesome to take a trip down memory lane. Examine my life and it's history.
SSSOOOOOOOOOO...IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE GROUP "ROTTIES RULE"...
POP OVER THERE AND CHECK THEM OUT...They are the COOLEST bunch of PUPPERS to Know.....
While you're there you can find out things like: What did I like to eat? Favorite places to sleep? How I came to dogster?
Things I liked to do... So much to share about a life that was packed with action. So little time....
I've been doing Zoomies All over the place since last night. I was just so surprised and excited....Sleeping is optional for us Angel Puppers....Catch ya later... Gotta check for new messages from my subjects....Sassy Foxie

We found this poem at Light A Candle Group.... Just spoke to us.
We hope this reading finds its way to those who need the reassurance that God takes care of our Furs who we dearly love until we can be together once again....
Heaven's Doggie Door
My best friend closed his eyes last night,
As his head lay in my hand.
The doctors said he was in pain,
And it was hard for him to stand.
The thoughts that scurried through my head,
As I cradled him in my arms,
Were of his younger puppy years,
And Oh... his many charms.
Today there was no gentle nudge,
With an intense "I love you" gaze.
Only a heart that's filled with tears,
Remembering our joy-filled days.
But an Angel just appeared to me,
And said, "You should cry no more,
God also loves our canine friends,
He's installed a doggy door!"

A new diary entry was added!

Taking A Trip Down Memory Lane
Hey Darlin' Foxie- Your Momma again finds herself thinking about you....Taking a trip down memory lane. Fall has arrived. Three years have passed since I brought Mazy into our lives. She was a tiny little pup of just barely 8 weeks. She was so small...I was afraid of stepping on her. Grandpa wasn't so sure about a new puppy. Mazy immediately wormed herself into his heart. You LOVED everyone, but it was clear I held a higher place in your heart......
She could fit into my two hands. I'd never started with a pup that young or that small. Her 1st. collar was the size of a silver dollar. The collar now fits on her muzzle. She could run under All the furniture. Didn't take long for her to figure out I couldn't reach her without moving stuff. Mazy used this to her advantage. She is just like you! Srong willed, smart as a whip, an independent thinker. She also adapts easily to changing daily schedules. Good thing because, our schedules are constantly changing. Mazy is totally devoted to both Grandma and Grandpa.
By labor day weekend,(2007) I was asking myself: What was I thinking?
I'm fourteen years older now. I'm not sure, I have the energy to raise another pup? How long will I have to get up multiple times a night? An angel one minute, a little devil the next. How can anything that small get into so much mischief?
Mazy had wormed herself into my heart, weeks before she left her litter. I went every week to visit the litter of 5. Three girls and 2 boys. (2 black/tan and 3 red) They were tiny,fat, lively little doxies. I played with them. Observed their Mother's nature and disposition. (She was calm,quiet,easy going)
I looked forward to the trip south of town after my weekly Bible Study. The time was my sunshine for the week. The time
in which I hoped, I could go on with my life. My deep grief subsided for a little while. I'd cried more tears that summer, than with all the tradegy life had thrown at me. I was terribly depressed. People didn't want to talk to me anymore. I was only interested in talking about you. Everyone wanted me to just get over losing you and move on. (Irritated me, that people thought their was a magic time frame on grief)
I had spent all the years of your life depending on you to encourage me to fight my health issues as hard as I could.
You took to the job, as if it were your destiny. You kept me exercising. Kept me as active as I could be at that point in time. When I hit bad stretches, you stayed by my side. You loved me, even more. I'd walk the floors in the night with pain levels that were driving me crazy. You'd get up and check on me.
You gave me more than I could ever give you in a dozen lifetimes.
Mazy and I have both survived puppyhood. She has started to mellow a little. Of course you didn't mellow until you were 5 years old. I've never worked so hard to train a puppy....
I needed Mazy to be able to adapt to many enviroments. All in all, she has been an excellent student....
I know Foxie,you are always watching over us. So you also know that Baby will join you soon. She has so many issues:cardiac, stomach, intestinal, arthritis and seizures. Losing her hearing and her eye sight is failing. All of her issues are totally age related. The old gal is just wearing out.....
Baby grieved so much for you...I never thought, she'd make 3 more years. The weather is so hard on her...she can't take the cold or the heat. How much of our year is her ideal temperature of 60-70? Very little and not enough!
I pray everyday, that God will take her in her sleep. Last couple winters have been a real struggle. I don't know, if she has another winter in her? She is Enjoying the fallish weather. My heart thinks, this is probably her last fall....
I know when Baby meets you at the bridge....she will be so Happy to be reunited with her fur-sis. Thanks my darlin' girl for letting me, yet again, bend your ear....

Hi There Furs....I'm just starting my diary. I wanted to share with you a wonderful poem about how AWESOME Rainbow Bridge is...
What to expect, if you're heading this way. You see, I've been here 3yrs. I was waiting in line for my own special wings. You see, it's been pretty busy up here. The Angels couldn't keep up with wings for all us, Beloved pups and purrs. So they recruited a few earthly firends down here to help them out. Cali's Crew made sure I have these beautiful wings. Allowing me to travel even faster, than I do, when I run. Flying is so much FUN!!!! Takes awhile to get used to the wings. We are doing all kinds of silly Zoomies, all the time...I remember, my Momma saying, that I ran faster than any of her other furs. She clocked me at 30 mph., more than once... I WAS JUST STRETCHING MY LEGS AND RUNNING A HERD OF DEER. 5 miles was just a good workout for me! I'm a Terrier! All Terriers are known for having plenty of Energy....most needing plenty of exercise.
Nice to meet ya,
Hope you'll find your way back here again.
Remember we are watching over our families,
Love to all, Foxie
THE END OF RAINBOW BRIDGE
When I Woke up this Morning I Felt Very Odd
I Don't Know Why, but I Felt Close to God
The Sun Was Shining, the Birds Were Singing
The Music Was Soft, the Bells Were Ringing
And Puppies Were Romping at Play
What a Pleasant Start of a Wonderful Day
I Remember Laying down to Take a Nap
I Remember I Had My Head in Her Lap
I Remember the Sad Look in Her Eye
I Remember I Had Never Seen Her Cry.
I Remember I Wanted to Ask Her Why
I Remember Hearing Her Say, Goodbye
I Wanted to Say Don't Cry for Me
I Wanted to Say, Just Remember Me
I Wanted to Say I Remember the Toys
I Wanted to Say I Remember the Joys
I Wanted to Say, I Love You So Much
I Wanted to Say, How I Loved Your Touch
Oh Please Let Me Hug You
Oh Please Let Me Kiss You
Oh Please Let Me Tell You
What an Angel You've Been
Oh Please Let Me Thank You
for Showing Me Him
I Knew When I Woke up
There Would Be No Pain
I Knew If I Wanted to
I Could Play in the Rain
I Knew That I Would Remember
the Love You Gave Me Forever
You've Taken Care of Me
All My Life You've Guarded Me from Trouble and Strife
You've Taken Care of Me thru Good and Bad
You've Always Stopped Me from Feeling Sad
You've Given Me Treats and Given Me Care
You've Told Me What to Expect When I Got There
So Please Don't Cry, Wipe the Tears from Your Eye
I'll Look down upon You and with a Woof and a Sigh
I'll Gather My Courage and March up to God and Ask Him
When You Get Here to Give You a Nod
for You Were My Master and You Were My Friend
and I'll Be Waiting for You at the Rainbows End.
