October started as a month with so much promise. We moved to a new neighborhood without thugs and plenty of squirrels to tree. I have managed to chase a couple of squirrels and even a deer or two. But it just seems the sad news won't stop coming. First we learned my big sis Terra isn't well and will soon be heading for the bridge and that has really bummed us all. But then we learned that we lost 2 of our dearest family members in the past week. Both of these pups were real oldies. My cousin Pooh went to the bridge last week and that just devastated us all. Pooh was 17.5 and she was the only female that could ever live with our Uncle Tom for more than a minute. That is quite an accomplishment and we bow our heads to your patience Miss Pooh. We know you are at the bridge shaking things up!
Then today my former mommy called to say that my former brother, Oscar had to go to the bridge. Oscar was also over 17 and that is really old for a weiner dog. He was a studly little thing and lived out his senior years as the Hugh Hefner of the family surrounded by young female pups! You go Oscar! I have bowed my head and asked for an easy transition for him as I know this is not going to be easy for Tammy and my skin sis Maleah. For that, my polky-dotted heart is breaking and I am asking for healing for both of them. I am also hoping Oscar found it in his heart to try to forgive me for trying to eat him when I was younger. I just didn't understand that he wasn't the cause of the baby crying. Please Oscar, don't let there be hard feelings and please don't tell Jesus when you see him. I have tried really hard to change and only nibble my brother Sid from time to time. So when you see Jesus, tell him I have changed and I ask you to forgive me. Just know I will miss your bossy, mouthy, little self and hope you and Pooh stir things up at the Bridge. I know you will be there with open paws to greet Terra in the near future, but until then enjoy your young hips, because I think you still have short legs!
Love and Kisses,
