February 14th 1990
Food, preferably human or cat, but any food will do.
Empty dish, not being able to get the "Almond Rocas" from the cat litter box!
She used to love her squeaky pork chop, but now that she's so old, she doesn't play with toys much.
Any and all food
To the refrigerator!
Break dancing, at 16 years old, she scoots along the carpet with her front down and butt in the air, and rolls back and forth.
We got her on Valentine's day of 1992 from the Humane Society. She was about two years old, and we had a yellow lab and a great Dane, but the family wanted a smaller dog. When I saw her, she was so cute and her little stub of a tail was wagging at warp speed. She immediately got along with our other pets, and used to go to my daughter's soccer games where she was a real attraction!
Honey is the happiest dog I've ever seen. When she was younger, she would scoot around the yard with and run circles around the bigger dogs. She had a basket full of toys, and she would rummage around in it until she found the particular toy she wanted to play with. She never learned toput them back, though. She alerted me to a home break-in when she was seven years old, and was in the back yard when our house burned in Dec. 2003. I feel so bad that she experienced that. Three of our four cats died that day. Her favorite cat lived, though, because the cat hid under the bedding and did not breathe the smoke that killed the others.
Honey was always young-looking; up until recently people thought she was a puppy. She is now old, grey-faced, deaf and has cataracts, but she still is one happy pup!
* Honey developed cancer of the spleen around her 17th birthday. It was very aggressive and spread fast. She made her final journey to the Rainbow Bridge on April 23rd, 2007. She was an amazing companion and always brought me great joy. I am so lonely without her, but know that she is happily "breaking" at the Rainbow Bridge, and will be waiting for me*
I'm Mrs. Bo Bo - And very happy too!

I am so happy today. I was always a Happy Puppy, but when I had to go to the Rainbow Bridge, something was missing in my (after)life. I was not really sure what was wrong. My Mom used to call me her "Little ray of Sunshine" and actually sang that song to me as she held me while I journeyed to the Rainbow Bridge. But when I got there, even though I was young again and pain-free, something was missing. I was lonely and knew something was missing that I once had.
I now know that" something" is love. Mom loves me, but she is back on Earth, and I have to wait until it is her time to pass over to be with her again. But - Several weeks ago at a Rainbow Bridge Group named Hammock Talk, I saw a pawsomely handsome black purebred Toy Poodle named Bobbie. My heart began beating harder, kinda like when I used to run circles around my other dog siblings on Earth. But this was different. I could tell he had been cherished, like me, and although he died an early, untimely death ( he passed in 1992) - he was about my age. Don't furget, that at Rainbow Bridge, we old, infirm and diseased animals shed our outer shells fur the young, happy and healthy animals we once were. So Bobbie and I are the same age.
Well, it is amazing, but he felt the same way about me! We were drawn together. It is really remarkable, he waited at the Bridge all these years fur me! He is my Dream-Come-True, my small, dark and handsome stranger (but stranger no more). He is My Bobbie, and I am Bobbie's Girl, and those of you of a certain age will recognize that as the title of a song from the early 1960's! Not that my Mom is that old, (Ha Ha) but she did hear it on the radio when she was a mere child. BOL!
I am a Happy Puppy Again!
Joyous stubby tail wags,

Yesterday, I found out that my beloved "Happy Dog" Honey has only a short time left here with me. I took Honey to our vet for a check-up and blood test to check on her BUN and creatine levels. During the examination, Dr. Aber remarked on a large mass in Honey's abdomen. The x-ray showed a tumor completely covering her spleen, with a smaller tumor next to it. A splenic tumor can be benign or malignant, but based on the fact that there were two tumors next to each other, the most likely diagnosis is hemangiosarcoma, or cancer of the spleen. This is a very aggressive cancer which metastasizes easily. The outlook would be bleak even if she was not 17 years old. I will not put her through any stressful treatment, but only make our remaining days together memorable. She has been a joy and a ray of sunshine in my life, and I fear that dark days are ahead for me. My most fervent prayer is that she will let me know when it's time for her to join her canine and feline "sibs" already at the Bridge. I know Rowdy is waiting there with a stick in his mouth.
I have loved you for 15 years, Honey, and no matter what, you will always be a little ray of sunshine in my heart.
You are my sunshine, My only sunshine,
You make me happy when skies are gray.
You'll never know, Dear, how much I love you,
Please don't take my sunshine away!
