Arrival Story:
I was heartbroken after the sudden death of my Amber, a very kind and faithful yellow lab. The house echoed, it was soooo empty. I called on an old ad in the paper published 4 weeks previously that caught my eye. The ad read, "basset-bloodhound mix pups". Hmmmmmm I had always wanted a houndie. This pup would be nothing like a lab (I knew Amber was irreplaceable)... Well, I found out all the pups had gone to their new homes, but oddly enough, one pup had been returned the previous day as the new owner was allergic to her. Yes!! This was my lucky day!!! I actually believe that she was just MEANT FOR ME. Just seeing that beautiful doggie-face, it was love at first sight. ar-rooooo, ar-roooooooo, ar-rooooooooooooooo Now, the daily mischief, thievery, and oh-so silly antics have brought a new joy into life... Every day I enjoy BIG houndie hugs from my Luna Bear --- the most loving-est dog I have ever known!

following is a list of some of the items Luna Bear has partially/totally consumed in her first year of life: 1 cell phone, 1 (VERY VERY important) bill from the IRS, at least 1 of each of my pairs of shoes, 3 beautiful, expensive (and very large) books, 1 couch, 1 loveseat, ALL of the newly planted spring flowers, 3 pairs of sunglasses, 1 paycheck, 2 tv remote controls, etc. etc...and, of course, the EMPTY SPOT left in my heart by Amber ATB.

A Letter to Luna Bear

Hi Luna Bear, it has been 2 months since you crossed the bridge. Think of you everyday sweet girl. You've left me 10 years of a hounds love. excellent memories. I must confess there is still a drool you flung upon the back door that I have not wiped off. :-)) I was secretly proud of your technique and athletic ability.. to toss drool 5' off the floor was not easy. So I will leave it awhile longer.
Love, mama
Ps. You've been busy I'm sure but I want you to know what came to be here after you crossed over. Our Dogster friends chose your Diary as Featured Diary of the Day! So cool!
Then they chose your diary to play again for the week! Told you you are a "moobie star" Luna Bear. Then I received a lot of caring words in comfort from other Dogsters. Very nice.
Then I received an important letter from UC Davis school of veterinary medicine.
Remember "dat ol vet man"??
Well he did sumphin wonderful because of You!
South Bay Veterinary Hospital in Chula Vista Ca made a financial donation to the Companion Animal Memorial Fund in memory of Luna Bear!! The $ will support studies into finding answers for the diseases that cause pain and suffering among companion animals.
Diseases like MRSA .. Which took you from me.
But anyways I feel good that vet man made a memorial for you. Cause you're special!
I'll write again the day I clean off the drool.
Until then

"Sniff Everything Everywhere and Enjoy Life"
or in your case "The Afterlife" Luna Bear!


RIP dear Luna Bear

Luna Bear received her wings 6/21/14. She was my Puppygirl. We had 10 short years of being best pals. Her Diary entries were written from her observations of her world..and I must say she was a sweet and clever hound! Hope you'll read and enjoy knowing my dear girl through her diary. Thanks to Dogster for noting 6,200 views of Luna Bears' page and for awarding her A Diary of the Day winner. I loved her so much...

Ar-oooooo from Luna Bear! Here I am, a healthy, happy houndette. At 9 and 3/4 yrs old, I am actually between 71-78 in human yrs. I can still act all wild and cwazy like I did in puppyhood, but I usually don't waste my time wif dat when I could be couch napping instead..I like to get excited for my dinner cuz it still makes my mom laugh. Dat vet man told us I am I good health (for an old lady), dat my mom takes very good care of me. I still weigh 106 and now hab a very white face. Yup I did have glaucoma and am blind but I still hab both eyes and a lovely expression they say...And best of all I am able to walk wif her again after that scary problem wif my back last year! Okay, so I am no greyhound, but that's just fine wif us! My mom says I was born to collect all the extra happiness in the world and share it with a whole lot ub people who always stop to pet and admire me. She says I make everyone smile. I am happy to be a happiness giver! Luna Bear
