Sweet Luna Rose....you are 4 months Cancer Free and that is the best gift any of us could ask for... We know the last year has been rough for you.....and yet, you never falter or lose hope....you just face life with joy and strength....you are our hero and role model.
It is hard to believe it has already been four years since you came into our lives and hearts. You are a bundle of joy and we love you so...thank you for helping our hearts heal from losing our precious golden girl, Sissy....we will always miss her (as we miss all our angels), but you have reminded us of the importance of continued rescue work and giving our hearts to others, as well. Thank you, also, for allowing Honey Bun to come into our family and find her forever home with us and loving her so...you are pawsome and we are blessed. The bond the two of you have developed is incredible.
You have been even more amazing than we could have known when you rescued us....being your daddy's caregiver and taking care of us all....you are our silly happy girl.....
You have added so much fun, love and happiness to our lives these past four years......some heartache too with your cancer....but nothing we could not get through together. Thank you for being there for us and being our special girl. We know you had a rough loss and difficult transtion to our home in the beginning....I know you must miss your other family....but we have grown into the best of friends and we are ever so thankful for you. We feel you are happy and finally know, YOU ARE HOME!!! We hope you never feel lonely, scared or sad ever again...we will never leave you...
Luna Rose, your first mommy knows you are doing well and she is happy for you.....YOU ARE LOVED. Thank you for making your grandparents so happy, too. They love your daily visits.
In two days, it will be your birthday....6 ears old. What a great week....your fourth Got'cha Day with us and your 6th birthday....thank you for picking us as your family.
We celebrate you....your smile and your happy spirit. You are a bundle of joy!!
Our hearts are connected by paws.
We love you, Mommy, Daddy, Ivy Joy and Honey Bun

Happy Mothers Day!!!
We believe a mothers' love is unconditional. It is rare and uniquely special. Many women in the world don't have human children, yet give of themselves and their hearts as a mother would to a human child....we furbabies are always our mommy's "children" and because of that, we are lucky enough to have known unconditional love. I have the greatest mom ever!
My mommy always wanted human children and yet, her life is so blessed with all of us who have been her "children". she gives of herself to others as a mommy would give to her children. She is a "mother" in every sense of the word....all of you are.
We are so grateful our grandma is home and with us.....as she is our rock and inspiraiton. We are blessed. Please take time to tell all the moms in the world, thank you...
" Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it."
Thank you Mom....thank you Grandma....thank you everyone for your love.
Happy Mothers Day. May it be filled with Sunshine and love.
Our hearts are always connected by paws....
Your sweet girl,

Merry Christmas and Happy-Healthy New Year!!!
"What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace."
We love you all and thank you from the very depths of our hearts for the gifts of frienship.. Thank you for all the support as I go on my cancer journey.....and for helping my mommy smile more....
Here is a special poem a dear angel friend gave me.....
"I AM YOUR DOG…..
I am your dog, and I have a little something I’d like to whisper in your ear
I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have children to raise. It always seems like you are running here and there, often much too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life
Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle. You smile at me. I see the love in your eyes
What do you see in my eyes? Do you see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrong doing for just a simple moment of your time? That is all I ask.
I ask you to slow down, if even for a few minutes to be with me. So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that computer screen, of others of my kind, passing away. Sometimes we die young…and oh so quickly and suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to notice until the very end, when we look at you with our grizzled muzzles and cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep, to run free over the Rainbow Bridge.
I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just “one more day” with me. We have NOW, together. So come, sit down here next to me on the floor and look into my eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as “alpha” or as “trainer” or even “Mom and Dad” – come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another’s eyes and talk.
I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or our walks together, or even life in general. You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such things with. Someone very different from you, and here I am. I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and I can revel in the differences of our spirits and souls. I do not think of you as a “dog on two feet”. I know what you are. You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still.
Now, come sit with me, here on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow down if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper into my ear. Speak with your heart, with your soul, and I will know your true self.
We may not have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short"
