Back in Black!

I have always had black dogs, from my very first dog as a small child to my current sweetie, Pepper. It was not out of preference or purposeful choice. They were just the dogs fate or God or the universe brought into my life. I sometimes wondered why I always ended up with the black dogs. A little variety would have been nice.

I learned a while back that black dogs have a harder time getting adopted. So Maria's recent blog about it is not news to me. I've loved all my dogs, but somehow knowing they are the underdogs makes me cherish them even more.

Black dogs are now my preference and if the winds of fate see fit to bless me with a lifetime of black dogs I happily embrace that fate!

Yours in Dogster,
Jamaica & Pepper's humom

From Maria's Dogster blog dated 8/15/2011:
The Best Friends Animal Society is hoping to help thousands of black pets find forever homes starting today. During its Back in Black adoption event, which runs from August 15 to September 17, 2011, anyone who adopts a black pet from a participating shelter gets 50 percent off adoption fees. The list of shelters isn’t terribly extensive, but at least it helps get people thinking about the plight of black dogs and cats.

Oh my, Dogster was dragging and drowsy this morning! And on the morning my diary was chosen as The Diary of The Day!

Thank you to Flicka and Redford's families for the nice plaques they made up for me! It seems the picture problem is finally sorted out and they actually show on my page now!

Candle Lighting

Dear furiends Cleo, Flicka, Lucas and Pam let us know about the Sierra's Garden candle lighting tonight. Humum found an angel votive a good friend had given her for Christmas one year. She never used it until today. She found my name tag and put it in the angel's hands. There it belongs and there it will stay.

Our candles were lit at 4:30 west coast time as that coincided with the group lighting. But they were lit again at sunset as well.

The mums in the photos on my page were to celebark Pepper's birthday on the 4th. They will be planted in the garden tomorrow in honor of the heaven and earth angels.

 

Cleo's Garden and A Candle Lighting

My dear furiend Cleo has a garden begun in her honor by her mum. In this garden will be a clear round glass jar with a lid. In the jar will be glass florists pebbles. On the florist pebbles will be a name for each Fur Angel. The jar will be out in "Cleo's Garden" when Cleo's mum is there. It will shine in the sunlight. My humom is so touched that my name will be on one of those pebbles.

From Cleo's Diary:
On July 23rd at 7:30 P.M.EDT Wyoming's Mum will be having another Canine Cancer Hero Candle Lighting at Sierra's garden in Maine for our heaven and earth angels. They will be lighting each and every stake in Sierra's garden that has our angel's names burned on them, and a healing section of candles for our heroes that are living through the challenges of cancer.

Sadly each year the number of names in the garden grows .....so I'm sure that our angels will have something special planned for that evening.
Every year they seem to show up and give us the gift of their presence.

If everyone can please light a candle at 7:30 PM EST and place it outside so our angels can see our tribute of love for them in all different parts of the world, and a second candle to show our unity for positive thoughts of healing for those battling this disease ....."

Cleo is Dogster 655745. She has more information and some neat links in her diary. Sorry my humom is not smart about links.

Looking forward to seeing all those candles on Saturday and feeling all the love.

Oh Mr. Vick!

Oh, Mr. Vick, I can't imagine why
you would cause dogs to suffer and die!

Oh, Mr. Vick, hope to live long
At the end of the road, may you face all your wrongs

Sadly, there's surely more just like you
People who think us dogs are just tools

Maybe someday when it's your time to die
You'll have to look each of those dogs in the eye

Your fate will be to understand what you've done
And each dog will come forward one by one

You'll see in each eye what distress you created
and, perhaps, you'll see your life here was wasted

So, Mr. Vick, enjoy your earthly delights
Enjoy your money, your fame, your name in big lights

For someday you may find at the end of your time
That the universe serves justice that does fit the crime

The Grandparents are Coming! The Grandparents are Coming!

Grandma and Grandpa are leaving from Southern California today. They are some of my favorite earthly people!

Their dog, Rowdy, came to join me at the Rainbow Bridge a few months back. We were very close in age, I was a few earthly months older than him. We knew each other as pups and I was probably his only doggy furiend there on earth. We both had some socialization issues:( Now we both have lots of Rainbow furiends!

Anywoofs, I was an indoor/outdoor dog in my earthly days, meaning while the peoples were home I could go in and out whenever I wanted. Mostly I preferred to be outside, though. This kind of hurt Mother's feelings, but hey, when you've got a chow's coat it gets pretty hot! But when the grandparents came I would choose to hang indoors and socialize with them! They were some of very few people I did that for!

Safe journeys Grandma and Grandpa! Pepper is waiting for you in the Santa Cruz Mountains and, boy, will she be happy when you arrive!

Impossible or I'm possible?

Humom thought the following was clever so she asked me to help her remember it by putting it in my diary. Humom is rather easily impressed if you ask me, but here goes:

Nothing is impossible; the word itself says, 'I'm possible'!

 

The Kid:)

I was close to one year old when the kid came home. He was a little pink lumpy thing. I say, I did not know what to make of him at first. I was a little afraid, actually. But I soon figured out he was relatively harmless. There are a few sweet pictures of us together, the old fashioned film kind. The folks did not have a digital camera back then. Maybe one day the humom can be roused into scanning and posting them. Woofs, lots have changed in over 14 years!

I learned I was now second fiddle with the kid around. But that was ok by me. I was a very independant girl. As long as I got my walks life was good. And walk we did, now with a stroller in tow or sometimes the kid in a sling.

The kid grew rather slowly (compared to me). He never really got the hang of crawling. Did kind of an army crawl with just his arms. Seemed to me it took furever fur him to finally start walking!

But walk he did and soon he went off to school. He did preschool then started kindergarden. I was there fur all of his elementary years. Other kids sometimes came over to play. Then the scouts started having meetings at our house. These times were a bit hard fur me. I was not into visitors.

He would take walks with me and the humom. Sometimes he would try to climb the little cliffs along the side of the road. I thought this was a bit silly. But we would wait and watch and hope he does not fall and break his neck. Thank goodness he never did!

He was in his first year at middle school when I had to start watching from a far. He was 11 and I was 12. He has grown tall and strong and his voice has changed. He had braces put on his teeth and taken off during his middle school years. Three short years go by so fast!

Yesterday there was a big gathering in the little valley that holds my earthly home. The folks went and the kid did too. They were dressed a little nicer than usual. There was some singing, some talking, some awards handed out. The kid got his certificate. He graduated from middle school! High school, here he comes!
