I am looking down on the World I left behind. The snow is gone, and flowers are blooming all over. My brothers and sister are finally getting to go out, and enjoy their walks, as momma leads them around the block!
I miss my life down there. The feel of the cool breeze blowing across my face. It was so sweet, to smell the flowers, and clean, fresh air that was the beginning rather than the end.
At the Rainbow Bridge, it is perfect all the time. The flowers bloom for us every morning. The cool breezes ruffle our fur, and make us happy to run through the fields. Nothing hurts on those that hurt so bad in their other life. It is so wonderful to see. My previous siblings, that I never knew, are up here, happy and healthy, and waiting for the same thing!
We are all waiting for the rest of our family!
But, we can wait. We don't want them to rush it!
Of course, time is different here. Things don't move so fast. We have forever. Forever is our future. It is nice to know, however, that, as we watch our siblings sneeze bite at the spring "bugs" at always affect us, that it does not do that here!! I whisper in the ear of my Brother, Beau, that things will be sweet when he is with me, again. But, I also whisper, that he must stay with our momma for awhile yet. He is not ready to come here and enjoy the pleasures that the Rainbow Bridge has to offer!
I insist -- don't come here too soon!!
I love watching you run and play, and get all those kisses, and belly rubs that I miss so much!! All things in due time!
I love you all!! Enjoy your spring!
Kisses from the Bridge -- Phoebe

It has been a long time since I last wrote in my diary, and so much has happened. I have not been playing as much in my favorite places, but that does not mean that I don't miss you all, and want to come down there. But, not long ago, I got a very special prize. Nortie, Edgrr's brother, came to the Bridge. He found me, and we have been togethe ever since. We snuggle together every night, and we can hear the tears that his family, and mine, still shed for us. We are so sorry that our leaving makes them so sad, because we know, in time, we will all be together again, and then we will never be apart! We visit our hoomans often, and snuggle up to them. They don't know that we are there, but we love to see them, again, and to smell their scent, which we hold close to our heart, knowing that, one day, when we are playing in the grassy fields beyone the Rainbow, we will smell that scent, and know that the ones that we love the most, have come for us, finally!
We don't want anyone to shed tears over our passing, but we appreciate the love that those tears show us! We just want our hoomans to be happy, so that when they come for us, the reunion will be as sweet as the smell of the flowers that grow for us up here!
We, also, want to thank those that remember us with Rosettes, and stars, and notes. It makes us wag our little puggie tails, long, straight tails, or little stump-wagging tails. We miss you, and send you sniffs, licks, and love nibbles!
Good night, my family. Your loving Angel,

Hiya pups! My pal Gus tagged me and now I'm it. I get to choose 7 of my pals to tag.
Here are the rules:
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!
Here are 7 fun facts about me! Phoebe:
I was seven months old when my old "family" chose to get rid of me cuz they were having a hooman child.
I use to love to "plow" through the fall leaves.
I use to also love to poo in those fall leaves
Beau is not my littermate, but he may as well have been
Loved to wake my momma up by laying on her chest and tickling her face with my whiskers
I had a toe on my back right foot that was hyperextended, cuz I use to run like crazy when I was young!
I died on a plane when I was four, and don't want any of you to fly that way, so drive, stay home, or ride in the cabin!!!!

Author Unknown -
A Dog For Jesus
I wish someone had given Jesus a dog
As loyal and loving as mine
To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes
And adore Him for being divine.
As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog
Would have followed Him all through the day
While He preached to the crowds and made the sick well
And knelt in the garden to pray.
It is sad to remember that Christ went away
To face death alone and apart
With no tender dog following close behind
To comfort its Master's Heart.
And when Jesus rose on that Easter morn
How happy He would have been
As His dog kissed His hands and barked its delight
For The One who died for all men.
Well, the Lord has a dog now, I just sent Him mine
The old pal so dear to me
And I smile through my tears on this first day alone
Knowing they're in eternity.
Day after day, the whole day through
Wherever my road inclined
Four feet said, "I am coming with you!"
And trotted along behind.

Last night, the sunset at Rainbow Bridge was glowing a bit more brightly! That is how we knew that someones sweet baby was being sent to us. We all gather at the Bridge and waited to see who would be crossing. I stood there with my brothers and sisters that went before me, and with my friend, Brutus, and saw Chloe, the Princess Pug. I knew of her, because of my sister, Paris, the Princess Pug. Chloe came to us, walking with a bounce in her step. She told us that she felt so good, and that she could walk on her own again. She was so happy about that. But, then, we also saw the tear that slid down her cheek. We all knew what that was for. . .we had all experienced it ourselves at one time.
Chloe is missing her momma, Cathy, and her daddy, Lee, and the rest of her family! She said that she did not mean to leave, but it was her time. SHE HOLDS NO ONE RESPONSIBLE, AND WANTS NO ONE TO BARE THE BURDON OF HER PASSING!! She knows that her momma did all she could to keep her there! It was just her time to go! We took her by the paw, and lead her to her space. She is surrounded by friends, old and new! She will never be lonely, or want for anything. She will be able to run on four healthy legs, and play with everyone up here! She will bask in the sun, and the love that surrounds her.
I will keep her safe and let her know that she is love, momma Cathy!! She will feel your tears, as I feel my momma's tears still! She does not want you to feel that you did anything wrong, or that you did not try to do more. She loves you so much, and will be with you. . .until it is your time to come and get her, forever!!
With all the love that is felt at the Bridge,
Phoebe, the Angel!!

Hello, everyone down there, especially those of you in Pugapalooza, and FLOP. I was just sitting here on my little fluff of cloud watching down there, and I wanted to thank all of you that responded so sweetly to my tale of devotion. I know how much it meant to my mom.
I am up here with all the other babies that have passed, and just so you know, everything is fantastic. We can eat all we want, and not gain a pound, we run through all the tall grass, and no bugs latch on to us, we can be out all day long and never suffer from the sun or cold, we have laps to sit on whenever we want, and hand to stroke our backs, and rub our tummys when we have the need.
Nothing is missing from our existance except for the hoomans that we love and miss so much.
We know, however that in time, our own people will come for us, and we will be complete!
I am up here with mom's other babies, Chippy, Outlaw, Jamie, Joshua, Jeremy, and Pam.
Mom, you have to know that Pam is still the bossiest dog up here. She doesn't cut anyone any slack, but she is loads of fun.
One of my favorite new pals is Brutus. He was sent to me by his mamma, and I am thankful for that. He is a sweet fella, and we really enjoy is company.
So, I miss you terribly, and love you a lot, but know that I will see you again, momma. Your tears are felt, and I am sorry that I am the cause of them. I loved you while I was there, and I love you from above. I know you love me too. So, until we see each other again, I will keep in touch. . .

Phoebe came to me at seven months old, with her brother, Beau, who was ten months old. Their human family had decided to get rid of them because they were having a human baby, and did not think they could have dogs.
It was their loss, and my gain!
Phoebe was a string bean when she came to me. Then, because I loved her dearly, I had her spayed. It is amazing what can happen to them after that! She plumped right up. And, due to allergies, and the medication that she had to take, she gained even more weight! But, regardless, she was my princess!! She was so sweet, and good natured. She was funny, and had a great personality!! She was shy around some, and boysterous around others.
When I got her, she did not know what stairs were, and wanted nothing to do with them. I worked with her, and she got the jist of it, and mastered them in no time, as she did with everything she put her mind to.
She and her brother were whirlwinds for the first three years of their lives. Then, they just mellowed into sweet, cuddly little angels. Phoebe snored to beat the band, and I couldn't sleep well unless I heard that! In the morning, when she would wake up, she would put her head on the side of my body, and roll herself down to about my hip. Then, she would come up, and lay on my chest, and tickle my face with her wiskers until I opened my eyes!! I would be staring into her liquid chocolate brown eyes, and my heart would just melt!!
I cannot even express in words how much I miss that girl!! I love her so much, still, even after a year of not seeing her. Of course, I blame myself for her demise!!
I was traveling to Michigan to visit my mother, and put her and her brother in the underbelly of the plane. I was told by a multitude of people over a period of six weeks, that all would be well.
Well, all was not well.
When I got to my destination, I was told by the airport staff that she had died on the plane!! It has taken me a very long time to be able to talk about this experience without totally breaking down. I let a sweet, loving, gentle, beautiful, wonderful girl, be locked in a dark, unfamiliar place, to die alone!! I still cry. I will always mourn, and I will never forgive myself, nor will I ever forget her!!! She died too young (not even four, yet), and is so dearly missed by all that knew her!
I love you, Phoebe, and I always will!! I miss you like air, and wish you were with me still!! I am so sorry!!!
