Arrival Story:
Whitney is originally from Dayton, OH. Her and her human mommy moved here in 1999 to get away from the cold weather and to be closer to the rest of the family. Her human mommy (my grandma) died of kidney cancer on May 23, 2003.

Whitney Powell Stephens passed away on November 1, 2006. She was 15 years old. She deeply missed her human mommy so I know she's truly happy up in Heaven with the one she loved most of all. She loved the cold weather when it came in town and she loved her long night sleeps. She will now be able to enjoy cold weather whenever she pleases and will be able to sleep as long as she'd like. Truth be told, she may not be doing much sleeping though because she'll be too busy catching up with her mommy and being loved on. She will truly be missed.

Happy (Belated) 11th Birthday, Cookie!

Olivia wanted this written on Cookie's actual birthdate September 2nd, but we get busy up here in Heaven and she had her own things to handle. Olivia was involved a car accident on Tuesday, August 28 while she was on her way to the first day of her Tuesday/Thursday Fall classes. She was then transported to Santa Rosa hospital to be checked out after complaining of head, chest, neck, right arm/shoulder, and back pain. Her very loved purple van was totaled making Olivia very disappointed. She loved her van Marilyn. They had some fun and great memories together, but after 10 years of being on the road with the Stephens' family, Marilyn was ready to go to Heaven...I'm pretty sure Marilyn Monroe will enjoy driving the car version of herself.

Olivia is now doing better, but still has upper back/neck pain and is in a neck brace she has given the name Nester. We aren't sure how long she will be stuck with Nester as her spine was shown a bit off in CT scans and X-rays. She had an MRI on her neck yesterday and is still anxiously waiting to hear the report.

...Anyway. Olivia has not forgotten about Cookie. Once she gets back to driving and gets herself a new, but used car, her and Cookie will go shopping for presents! Olivia and Cookie are like two peas in a pod. There is no separating the pair. She was given Cookie has a Christmas present in 1996 when Cookie was just a few months old and Olivia was 9 years old. They love taking pictures (if you haven't noticed) and snuggling up together. Olivia even taught her how to be like me! Cookie used to be very quiet and I was always the loud one getting in trouble. Now, Cookie's the loud one getting in trouble. Olivia taught her how to "preach" on cue, something she taught me when I moved in with them back in 2003. "Preaching" is simply "talking" and barking on cue. When Olivia tells Cookie to preach, she does, making Olivia a very proud Mommy. Cookie even sings now whenever the operator or Olivia's mom come on the answering machine!

Olivia and Cookie have been through a lot together. Love, loss, happiness, and disappointments. No matter what they go through they will always have each other and will always be Mother and Daughter.

So, Cookie. Happy 11th birthday! We love and miss you up in here Heaven, but Olivia isn't ready for you to go yet. 11 years down and plenty more to go! Have a great year with plenty of great expierences. Keep on preaching and singing (Olivia's VERY proud)!



Cause of Death?

Olivia thought I needed to clear up what caused my death. While Olivia's mom thinks it may have been tainted dog food, Olivia says it just isn't so. I ate and was myself up until the last breath I took. I showed no signs of possible kidney failure. I simply died from old age. Another sign it wasn't tainted dog food? Cookie is still alive and kicking. Cookie and I always ate the same dog food and shared the same dog treats. If there would've been tainted dog food we probably both would've been affected. Thankfully, we were switched off of the brands that were tainted before any harm could be done.

As an angel dog, I know there have been several pets entering the gates since the day I got up here. Some have been taken here because of old age. Others have been taken here because of tainted food. Just remember, if your friend has entered the gates of Heaven recently or in the past (regardless of cause) they are watching over you. God doesn't take away people or animals unless it is their time to go. Sadly, there is evil in the world, but at the end of the day goodness prevails. Be comforted knowing that you have one more angel watching over you now than you did the day before.

From here in Heaven to there on Earth I would like to send my condelences on behalf of Olivia and family to all those who have lost animals. Death is a terrible thing, but there is an afterlife. God takes away, but always remember he also sends. If he has taken away a pet or a human from you he will send you another. You are never alone and you are always loved.



New Year, New Entry.

Olivia felt it was time for me to stop chit chatting with my mommy and get back to writing entries. So, I'll write one as fast as I can. I got people to watch over, cats to make friends with, and dogs to bother!

Olivia starts her second semester of college this coming week and it will be her first semester ever without me here on Earth. I'm sure she'll do just fine. She's one smart girl. Cookie will be able to help her get some studying done- or at least just help her take breaks.

Olivia's mommy and her have been discussing getting a new dog for awhile. I say, what's taking so long?! Olivia's dad doesn't want a new dog, but I know Cookie and her would love a new buddy in the house. Hopefully, this new year will bring a new dog to the family. They could use a new dog in their lives to add to the one they already have in their lives, Cookie. Besides, one dog is never enough. You need at least two!

Did you see those silly pictures of Olivia and Cookie? Boy do they love to be silly! They've been silly together now for 10 years and I'm sure they'll continue to be silly for many more! Well, I've got to go back to doing my job as an angel. God needs all the help He can get up here!

God's Blessings in this new year from my family to yours!
