Thank you to all the little best friends who have sent us rosies, pretties and stars, these mean so much to the whole Fun Loving Family and the humans too.

Your kindness, love and caring and prayers are helping us through a very difficult time.

God bless you...we are thinking of a way to share Beatrix's funny stories...


From the Octopus

Dear little Dogster friends,

You all know who "best friends" were, and Beatrix always claimed I don't know about Dogster, but I always did. Yes, it's me the Octopus, writing on behalf of Beatrix.

Beatrix has not been on Dogster in sometime. She has been very gravely ill and it was hard to write her silly stories when all I could do was hold her close, rock her and tell her everything would somehow be okay.

Last night Beatrix lost her battle with a brain tumor. I haven't stopped crying because Beatrix is part of my heart, my arms are empty my hours stretch before me with no little girl to rock, to hold, to pray for.

Beatrix never wanted best friends to be sad, make hearts hurt and so she confided her pains, fears and sadness to me. She asked me please not to dwell on all the ways she was afflicted but to tell her little friends how very much she loved them, how much she cared and that she always remembered best friends in her prayers. (She had VERY long prayers)

Beatrix was my silly willy who would do anything for a laugh and that's how she wants to be remembered...with a laugh and a smile.

Here are a few Beatrixisms...

You so sweet you rot me teefs right out me head
Me no worry an me no cayuh me gonna eat you undaweya
You not sharpest crayon in box huh Octopus?
What doing?
Oh okay then
Why you say me this?
What mean that?
Jut like that huh?

and best of all Me LOVE you!

Thank you for sharing Beatrix's days, laughing with her and making her special. For a dog that everybody gave up on, in the end Bea sure had a lot of friends.

Please bear with me in writing to all of you, as I am heartbroken, weary and just devastated. I am trying to help the humans in the house cope and comfort five little dogs who are wandering about looking for "MamaBea"

Thank you for your prayers for us.

Me not been around on Dogster too dark, VAWY dark right now for best friend. Me only want lay in dark wif head under bed. Me no want play toys, no want rip toys...even flip flop not look good right now.

Me little son Baby confuse an' lonely...he want play. He come find his not recognize. Me snap at me son, Octopus grab me before me able bite. Me not self, not know what doing.

Octopus calling me name, but she sound so far away, me not able respond, just want darkness eat Beatrix. Just swallow best friend. Me climb deeper into darkness, try lie still as can.

Again, there she is, that horrible Octopus not even respect when me need this darkness eat self. She drag out, haul to rockey chair, sing, hug, rock. Me not even care me Octopus sing like fog horn. Somehow the rockey chair calm self, somehow sing song help little bit. But when sing stop me slink away, look for darkness again.

Me not know self at do unwoofable acts. Me not even able woof this. It not Beatrix at all. When me realize what me do me hide, tremble, shake, beg darkness eat Beatrix.

Octopus giving little happy pill to Beatrix but me not happy. Octopus calling many places. Do everything can...everybody say "must wait, give little happy pill time..."

And so us wait, Octopus hold most of day, sometimes lie on bed wif Beatrix wrap body around Beatrix. Say me again and again, "You're all right Beatrix, me heya wif you. You LOVE you Beatrix." Right now, that what me got and that what me take. An old, not too sharp crayon the Octopus who want rock, cuddle and sing.

So now me reveal biggest secret of me life, you ever tell this diary me say you liar, Beatrix love vawy much the Octopus an' the Octopus love vawy much Beatrix.

Me hope by me woof this heya it say how me recover from illness...So me little friend, if you read this know me LOVE you vawy much.

If me not able woof back to best friends right now, it because me vawy sick, need rock, sing. Soon me be okay again, then us all laugh, sing everything.

***From the Octopus***
I have been on the fence about Beatrix posting the next two diary entries, they are very honest and may make you sad. If you don't wish to read them, please close the window now. Rest assured I am doing all I can at this time to support Beatrix as she finds her way. I am in close contact with her personal physician. There are things going on that I have purposely omitted, for the sake of Beatrix's dignity, I hope you understand. If you wish to send a rosette, Beatrix is asking you please to send them to "new little doggy who not have friend yet"...I won't be able to respond to all of her mails as my time is consumed with Beatrix. Beatrix says those who read her diaries mean everything in her heart. Best friends make heart smile and Me LOVE you for it too! Please keep Beatrix in your prayers...Thank you, "The Octopus"

Hello Diary,

It me Beatrix an' me say you big SHUSH huh? You breave woof of this an' Beatrix OFF Dogster...Dogster for DOG okay...

So many things happening wif Beatrix. Not have attention span say you all this heya okay. But it got the Octopus all upset have poor best friend Beatrix back an' forth wif vet. Much blah, blah stuff. Like WHO care about blah blah...smell like woof in heya before Beatrix who pee on floor now THAT interesting!! Now THAT type of thing blah blah should be about huh? Who pee wheya and why!!...smell like kitty do something over theya, an' me mention you about this? Have LIVE black kitty cat at vet too!!

Me like sit quiet on me bottom, tip me head this way an' that say "hello Oscar" in me heart...but Oscar? Ugh...he NOT want make friend!! He just strut away say "HmmmphF, you a dog! Me no like."

So after much visit wif vet who VAWY nice BTW wif Beatrix, vet say me this...Beatrix a polar Beya...not just any kind polar beya a BI-Polar Beya. Me think this mean, Beatrix sometime living in south pole and sometime living in norf pole. Something like this huh?
