For all those I love

Last night was a very special night for me. Daddy sat with me and whispered how much he and mommy loved me, then piled some of my toys(my tomato of course) up on the floor next to me on my blankie. Then,Mommy came home early and laid on the ground next to me, and then I got to have McDonalds cheeseburgers and ice cream (my favorites). I haven't been feeling too well of late, and yesterday was the worst of all. I was so ready to close my eyes and sleep furvever, but my pain was such that I just couldn't get comfortable-much less sleep. After a little bit mommy and daddy packed me up in the car, and mommy stroked me the whole way. When we came to Dr Harts office it didn't even bother me that we were there(which surprised mom and daddy). The nice vet tech tried to give me a cupcake, but my tummy and my throat were hurting way too much. Mommy lay next to me and told me how much she loved me and pet me and kissed me over and over. Dr Hart came in and pet my face and gave me a little shot in my hip(I didn't like that part). I felt myself starting to drift off and I felt like I was on a cloud. My pain started to lessen and I heard mommy and daddy's voices get further and further away. Dr hart came back awhile later and shaved my little arm and gave me another shot and the next thing I knew I was floating away on that cloud. I came to such a beautiful clearing with lush green fields and dogs playing and napping as far as the eye could see. I realized then that I was no longer hurting, and I could breathe in the clean fresh air without any problem. Some dear pals of mine (Grizzly,Kodiak,Clover,Holly,Griffen and Cherry) came over and welcomed me with open paws. They explained to me what was happening and showed me how I could keep watch over my family and friends. I couldn't get over how great this place was, but I sure hated seeing my family hurt so much. I know that with time, my passing will become less of an awful hurting to them, and they will begin to remember me for all the woofderful things that they shared with me in life. Please know that I will continue to check in on all of you until we meet again. I love you all,

PS My good friend River paw mailed this and I would like to share it

Lend Me A Pup

I will lend to you for awhile
a puppy, God said,
For you to love him while he lives
and to mourn for him when he is gone.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years,
or maybe for two or three
But will you, till I call him back
take care of him for me?

He'll bring his charms to gladden you
and (should his stay be brief)
you'll always have his memories
as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise that he will stay,
since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught below
I want this pup to learn.

I've looked the whole world over
in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowd life's land
I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love
Nor think the labour vain
Nor hate me when I come to take my pup back again.

I fancied that I heard them say
"Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done,"
For all the joys this pup will bring,
the risk of grief you'll run.
Will you shelter him with tenderness
Will you love him while you may
And for the happiness you'll know forever grateful

But should I call him back
much sooner than you've planned
Please brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand.
If, by your love, you've managed
my wishes to achieve,
In memory of him that you've loved,
cherish every moment with your faithful bundle,
and know he loved you too.

-Author Unknown

"Your wings are beautiful and now when a breeze kisses your Momma's cheek...she will know it is you...reminding her of how much you loved each other...and that you will furever be by her side."

Not feeling so well

It seems like things are a little off with me lately. I thought maybe my arthritis was acting up more than usual, but that doesn't seem to be it anymore. Mommy has taken me to the vet a few times, but if she knows whats wrong with me, she's not sharing. I know it can't be good when mommy leaves Dr Harts crying, but you never know with mommy, she's very sensitive(if you're reading this mommy-sorry-but you are:-). I've been having lots of fevers and body aches, I started falling a lot, and most of the time it feels like someone is sitting on my chest. I hadn't been too hungry for awhile, until the last visit to Dr Harts, and with the new medicine-my appetite is back!!! My throat still feels like it's blocked, but I'm hungry again like usual. Mommy says maybe a little too hungry, but I don't think that's possible:-) Mommy is also calling me "skinny", but I don't know what that means-never heard that word before. Whatever it is, it can't be all good, mommy seems sad when she says it. I get tired a lot too, but the good thing is that mommy and daddy have been spending lots of time snuggling and loving on me:-) I hope they know how much I love them-they give me so much happiness.
Today I actually felt pretty good. It helped that grandma came over for a visit. I LOOOOOVE my grandma soooo much:-) I used to see her all the time(every weekend), but then she and grandpa moved farther away from us. I miss seeing both of them. She took some pictures of mommy and me together while she was here. As much as I hate getting my picture taken, I was happy to put up with it if grandma was here.
Well, I'm off to lay down again. I will have lots of lovely dreams about hamburgers,playing ball with grandma, and snuggling with mommy and daddy(*singing* these are a few of my favorite things). Nighty Night.


A matter of time...

He is my other eyes that can see above
the clouds; my other ears that hear above
the winds. He is the part of me that can
reach out into the sea.

He has told me a thousand times over that
I am his reason for being: by the way he
rests against my leg; by the way he thumps
his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he
shows his hurt when I leave without taking him.
(I think it makes him sick with worry when he
is not along to care for me.)

When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive.
When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.
When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.
When I am a fool, he ignores it.
When I succeed, he brags.
Without him, I am only another man. With him,
I am all-powerful.
He is loyalty itself.
He has taught me the meaning of devotion.
With him, I know a secret comfort and a
private peace. He has brought me understanding
where before I was ignorant.
His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.
His presence by my side is protection against
my fears of dark and unknown things.
He has promised to wait for me...
whenever...wherever--in case I need him.
And I expect I will--as I always have.
He is just my dog.
--- Gene Hill ---

Pebbles has meant this and so much more to me, Dan, and the rest of our family. She has been the heart of all that we are, and how we see all those around us. She came into this world showing such gentlesness of spirit, that one could not help but be affected to the core. Over the next weeks (or I beg God) months, we are going to do everything in our power to show Pebbles how much she has meant to us for these past 9 years. We have to feel lucky for all of the time we have gotten with this angel, and we will continue to cherish ever hour,every minute, every second we have left with her. A.L.L. (ACUTE LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA ) may be taking her body away from us, but the soul that lives within her will never die in our hearts. Love,


Prayers please

I come to all of you with news that could be bad/good. We got the report from the pathologist last night and it seems he thinks that Pebbs has lymphoma. Her white blood count is high and cancerous lymphocytes were found. From what we were told, she is probably in stage 5 of this cancer and thus has about a month. Our vet seems to think that their is another possibility(this is where the possibly good news comes in). She said another possibility is a bad infection that shows up as cells that look a lot like that of these lymphocytes. She's not ready to give up on Pebbs as having just a bad infection yet. Before we do any needle aspirations or anything of the sort, she wants to keep Pebbs on the antibiotics for another week and retest her blood on Wednesday. If nothing changes(or they get worse), well then the prognosis is bad. Waiting another week is not going to affect Pebbs one way or the other.
Pebbles does seem to be getting better on the antibiotics. She is panting less, she's wagging her tail again, and she seems to be a little more perky. We need you guys right now more than ever. The power of the paw with prayer has worked before. We're begging all of you to help it work again. Right now Dan and I are spending as much possible time with our angel as we can. I will try to keep you updated if anything changes or she worsens. Right now, as it stands, we won't get any definate results until next Friday. We love you all.

The Game of Tag

We have been tagged by our great pals Sassy, Otto, Mia, Gunner,Dawson, Shiloh, Daisy,Mocha Bear,Cookie,Akimi, Titus Phillipe, Simba, Dakini,Furio and Aussie Too. It sounds like fun so we're off to tag. Below are the rules of the game:

(Hint: Copy and paste the rules so you don't have to type them again):

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

1. We like to chase tiny little critters-Pebbs-Squirrels, Morg-squirrels and moles, and Sadie-bunnies
2. Our favorite thing to do is to sleep in the bed with mommy and daddy. Sadie sleeps between mommy and daddy, Morg sleeps at the end of the bed, and Pebbs like to sleep on the floor next to daddy
3. While most of the time when we're outside we do our own things, sometimes we feel rowdy and chase each other in circles around the picnic table until we fall from exhaustion
4. Pebbles likes to play with a lot of different kinds of toys-tug-a-ropes, balls, and stuffies
5. Morgie likes to play with stuffies-well ones shaped like squirrels atleast, but most of all she loves empty 2 liter bottles
6. Sadie loves balls balls and more balls. The squeakier the better
7. We love to chew on ice cubes

And the pups we choose to tag are:
1 Gibbon
3.Special Dawn
5.The Boston Girls
6.The Roo Crew

and Sadie tagged
1. Maggie May

...since I have had time to write. So much has been going on in the last month. This huge ordeal with the cyclophants taking over Plus Fun, they even got to me and the sisters!!! We were lucky to break free of them with the help of our pals though. Our great pal Poncho is gonna be going on trial for the whole thing soon. We know he is innocent!!
Another thing that has been going on is the announcement of Gibby and Gracie J's engagement!! This has made us so incredibly happy!! Me and the sisters are helping with the planning of both the wedding and the shower ANd we are in the wedding!!! So much fun. Us girls live for that kind of planning!!
But the best thing is that I have fallen in love. Buddy is the sweetest boy I have ever met, and he is so fabulously cute!! He will accompany me to the wedding and we are also going to a Valentines Ball together! He is quite a bit younger than me, and smaller too, but we won't let that get in the way of our love:-) His heart is what matters, and that is what made me fall for him (that and his cute nose). Hopefully I will be writing again soon. Mommy and Daddy have been especially busy with extra work and with mommy being sick so much, but hopefully they will be around more from now on. Until next time...

Oh how I love it. Fluffy, white, slushy, dirty, any way it comes it is glorious. Mommy let us out tonight and there it was!! I almost thought I had died and gone to heaven!!! The first thing I did was shove my whole face in it and take a big bite!! Ooooh the taste was sweet!! So cold, yet so crunchy. Then I flopped myself down and rolled around in it!! Mommy thought this was hilarious, I don't know what's so funny, who wouldn't do that? I got a sudden burst of energy(that stuff has that effect on me) and I chased Sadie all over the yard! It's almost like my fountain of youth-I feel like a puppy again. Oh I can't wait to go out again. I'll have sweet dream of beautiful fluffy flakes of sugar tonight...


I AM 8 TODAY!!!!!!!

Oh what a glorious day so far!!!! "Operation Sleepless Nights" is still going strong so I woke up in Mommy and Daddys room again. After Mommy let me and sissies outside for our morning constitutional she surprised me with a Yummy Pig Ear!!!! Of course Morgie and Sadie got one too, but mommy assured me that mine was by far the biggest and tastiest. Then I got another surprise this afternoon!! Mommy came home really early from work to spend my Birthday with me! We went outside and played, took a nice long walk, and then when we got back-Daddy had a steak ready for me!!! Ohhh yummy tender, delicious steak. It was the best thing ever!! Mommy said she might go get me my favorite- a McDonalds Hamburger for din din, but only if I eat my dry "dog" food first. And even better than all of the great treats-all of my best Dogster pals sent me rosettes and great Birthday wishes!! I feel so loved. Maybe we should celebrate my birthday 2 times a year, or maybe 3, or 4, or 5... Think of all the yummy possibilities!


New Shifts

Okay, so heres the deal. Mommy and Daddy have both started new jobs in the last 2 months. At first, mommy and daddy were going to work at the same time, and would arrive home around the same time. I could deal with that-not much difference from before except I USED to go to work with them. Anyhow, now daddy started this thing called 2nd shift where he's home all day with us while mommy's at work, then he leaves, and mommy comes home within a little bit. Although we all get more time with mommy and daddy I just DO NOT like this whole situation. And I have started a protest. When daddy gets home at 11 30(as close as I can get without knowing how to read a clock), I start whining very loudly. Soon daddy is by me and mommy is up too. I continue this until either mommy comes to let me in their room, or daddy does. So far my plan is a success. Operation Sleepless Nights is truly one of my best plans so far. Mommy and Daddy have been talking endlessly about how tired they are and how "you know who" needs to "get a grip" before they lose their minds. I don't know who this "you know who" is, but I think I've done a pretty good job so far of driving both mommy and daddy crazy. Tonight, if all goes well, Morgan and Sadie will be sleeping in their beds, and I'll be with mommy and daddy!! *grinning an evil grin*

Mommy and Daddy had their big party yesterday for Labor Day!! WooHOO!!! It was a yucky day with all of the rain and it was a little cold(even for me with my fur coat. Daddy and Uncle Tom put up big tents to keep everyone warm and dry and they had a nice fire going too!! I got to see both of my grandmas and my grandpa and great grandma were there too. All of mommy and daddys friends and family were so nice to me. Me, Morgan, and Sadie all got special treats from almost everyone. Someone tried to give us ribs but mommy put a stop to that real quick. I'm not sure what is bad about ribs, but mommy says they are bad for us pups. They DO smell soooo good though. But we got lots of other goodies like cheeseburgers(my favorite). I just loved all of the attention. Today I wasn't feeling too good, I just didn't get much sleep yesterday with all of the excitement. So tonight and tomorrow I better double up on my usual 18 hours!!
