My Guarding Job ! ! !

George was as much as a guard dog, as Tripod has four legs! ! ! !

In all he had such a deep bark, that made him sound a lot "" bigger " than what he was. Then it was his look...as was written in his diary people would not go near him as the way he " looked " MEAN.......Yeah sure.....

Dont' judge.....get to know first ! ! ! !

When George was with us I worked at a garden nursey, that was straight across the road.....I NEVER late for work HEHEHEHE.

When my children came home from school they would bring George & Zac over for a visit...Zac use to waddle around and look for worms, and George would just follow me and say " hello " to any customers. It seem everybody knew them ! ! ! ! !
Our two Cardis at the time Penny & Jezebell my husband would bring them over for a visit during the day......at that time he was the "house husband"

There was a time when there was a break in ...stolen plants, it happen a few times.
Thought the present of George there would deter any thief......

Will we had to think about it first as he was NO guard dog......but as we only live over the road, we put his bed out side near where he could see our bedroom window and we could see him.....
A Mother thing.......you know how it is......

Any way when the nursery closed we would take George over when it was dark and stay awhile. We would leave and he would watch and then have walk around jump on the stacks of potting mixes, a few times he put holes in the bags ! ! !

Just like any " mother " I worrried about him, so I would go over during the night in my P.J's to make sure he was fine.......and what would he be doing SOUND ASLEEP .....and he would not even wake up till I woke him......Talk about a guard dog........NOT one bit of guarding duty was in his bones.........

The husband said to me after George had his time at " guarding " what would I tell the police if they happen to be going by and seeing me in my P.J 'S.......never thought of that......probably would of taken me for a car ride to the cop shop....he he he he he he

I would go and get him very early....and what did he do when we came home.....straight back to sleep..........

I don't know if it was George being there or the thief just gave up, but there was never anything stolen again....

He was there for only three nights..........and I know he had a good sleep every night ! ! ! ! while he was there


Waiting and looking after...

Being here at The Bridge is the next best place to be. I would much much much be with my Familt but this is not to be, for awhile...

I watch and hear what is going on with my family all the time, but yesterday was one of those days when I saw my Mums blood " boil "

See Mum has a real " soft spot " for the R.S.P.C.A, as that is where Daisy, Snoopy and I came from. Even Mums very first doggie when she was little girl came from there, she was a Kelpie......named Lassie..

My human sister Sally works at ourR.S.P.C.A. charity shop, and Mum was there having a chat with the presidant and a few other ladies.

WILL one of the ladies who is elderly and goes away for hoildays, has ALWAYS left her cat.... ( yes I know this is a doggie site but it concerns both ....) at the boarding facility at the RSPCA.
Will when she went to book in her cat in she was told how sorry they were BUT there was NO room.

ALL... YES ALL........ the boarding places were taken up with adult cats & kittens........ that were homeless and looking for new homes.......

WILL did I see my mums face turn red........

They said they have had an inflax of cats & kittens, and they have never had to use the boarding facility before for the homeless.

Why mum was SOOOOO very angry & upset, is WHY don't people get their animals sprayed.

There are so many cats & dogs that are not done .... this is so stupid.

She knows in her heart that some of the cats/kittens will get homes but there will be others that will not, thought no fault of their own.....will have to make a journey that would be before they should be making one........

Around where we live we have a Cat Care organization that helps with desexing as will as other organization that sometimes you dont even need to pay..... just when you have some money or give a donation to their animal charity shop....... (This is for the both cats & dogs)....

Maybe one day people might get the idea it is not " lovely " to have JUST ONE LITTER.

She knows it wont happen ....but she thinks the greatest news would be that, even if ONE shelter had to closed it doors not becauce they had TOOOOO many animals .....that they had NO animals that needed a second chance. That would be so wonderful.........but I am sure that would never happen in her life time....BUT it would be wonderful ! ! ! ! !


I think this is my closure...

One of the things I always need to know was
" WHY ",
Why he had a machete put though his face.

We asked it was always only enough information to just to made me look further to find an answer.

When I wrote in George's diary on the day he had enough of this life and need to go to a place that would make him so much better.....I wrote that I need closure .....at the time I thought I would never have it but ....... now I have it........

When you dont want something any more you try to find a solution..

Will I can say this was the most horrible soultion.

George had the machete put thought his face because........

for no other reason than........

" He was not wanted any more "

The good thing that came out of it, he escaped from this " person " and was found and given a second chance....to live a full life.

The love he returned to his family was so great it was unbelieveable as for what he had gone though.....That love was returned to him with all the passion & love we could give him.

He was never treated " different " to the other " furs " of the family, they were , and are all equal......if there was a time that one had "special needs" then that would be address, but all of them are equal in our eyes......

I think that is what makes a " happy " household when you have many legs running around...

I was given a name once just after we got George, I just love it .....

Mother of Many Paws...

It just fits so will........

My sweet Angel, there is not a day that goes by that a tear does not fall , but now I feel they will not be so often.

Rest in Peace my Georgie


Somebody is so sweet...

Sad day......or Not

It is the 15th January, here in Aussie land.

12 months ago today, we gave George a special gift....maybe not what you might think it is, but at the time is was.... plus it was one of the hardness things to do....

He made his way to the Bridge.

The year has gone so fast, I just cant believe how fast it has.

We had talked about how George was going to be placed at his resting place. He was going to be placed with all our other... two leg, fin, four leg & feathered family that had past.

There was no way that was going to happen....the Husband and Son refuse to " place " him......they said they just could not do it, even though they had done it for all the others.

Will my daughter the vet nurse said that he could be cremated.......

He came back to us after 4 days . When she brought him back home and I saw her walk in the front door with him, I had a tear in my eye.....He was home where he should be, watching over his family.

We had plan to place him with the others with a some roses and extra plants but that never happen.

He now sits on our mantel in the lounge room with the Australia flag and a photo of him.

He gets a " Pat & How yeah going George ? " from everbody....

We were NEVER going to get another doggie member,
......yeah sure ! ! ! ! !

As we thought we had OUR family......will as you know Tripod came into our family.......sent to us by George, we don't know........maybe.....Yes........

Tripod was a doggie that was not wanted because he was " broken "

Like George was.....kindred hearts, could be, maybe, don't know.......

Always remembered.

Never Ever forgotten.

" Angels are the Gate keeper to the Soul "


Never to late for a Birthday !!

15th December, and our George would of been 20 years old.....just cant believe it....

Will that is the birthday that we gave him......

George came into our family at the start of April.

At the time we did not want his " birthday " to be the day that he came to live with us, as that day was to be an end to a old horrible life. We thought for ages what would be a GREAT birthday date.

We thought maybe sometime in Easter.....no good, we would want to give him chocolate.....not a good idea....then maybe my birthday month July....no good I did not want to share...hehehehe.....then the sons birthday month, August, no he did not want to share..... then we thought sometime in December..........that was looking good.... first we had to check with our Daughters.....their birthday was in December......

They thought it was a great idea.......

My husband, Stephen and I thought the same...15th December, so it was.........

Why was it the best date......

Our twin daughters were born on that date, they were early and sick......but have grown up to be......very good adults, so giving George that date as HIS birthday was like a special gift we could give him...

A special date that was a start of a new life.......


What a sunny day....

It is such a wonderful sunny day here, in the land " Down Under " that I got to thinking about George how he would love to lay in the sun, and really just stay there until he would pant so much that you would have to get him and move him. ! ! !

I started to get a bit teary and thought what my tears are for....

Sadness..... because I miss him so much or
Happiness ......that he is now at peace.
I think it is a little bit of each.

Maybe this might of been something I should think about.....

Don't remember me with sadness,
Don't remember me with tears,
Remember all the fun we had
thoughout the years.

Then when the summer sunshine
awakes the flowers in bloom,
I'll walk that light from heaven
around the corner of every room.

I'll watch and care and love you
From heaven's open door.

Thanks for all your love and care you gave me.



This would be so wonderful........

It has been over 6 months since Our Georgie left us for a place where he would play and run and just be a doggie.

A place where all memories of his past would not even be able to enter with him.
Only good memories would be able to go with him.

Will I found this verse. and it got me thinking...

If tears could builf a
stairway and memories
a lane, I'd walk right
up to heaven and bring
you home again.

The verse really touch me, but then I thought would I really want to bring Georgie back.........

We had the most wonderful 9 odd years with him and him with us, he was treated with so much love it would flow over to the other fur family members. My son always called him the big cuddly bear.....he said that his nose was like a bear ! ! ! or the name Gorber he was nicknamed....where that name came from .. I will never know...one of lifes misteries....

I think now I could never be so selfish as wanting to bring him back if I could, he and all the other " babies " that are at the bridge would be having a wonderful time.....

I believe that they are watching over everyone of us......just look at all the stars in the sky at night......

Yes it would be unbelievable to give him another cuddle, another walk, another feed, to tell Daisy LEAVE George ALONE, or just to sit with him in the sun that he so much enjoyed, but those times are gone and there will be one day when I will be able to see him again but at the moment .....it is not the time.
and of cause some days the tears are so real, like a stream that goes for ever, but they will get less ....I am sure.

Treasure evey moment you have !
And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special !
Special enough to spend your time with.
And remember that time waits for no one.

Yesterday is history......that is what we make..
Tomorrow is mystery...we never know what is going to happen...
Today is a gift...........That's why it's is called the present......


Another rainbow ! !

The other day we had some heavy rain.
I had to take a picture of this rainbow, and this is why it was there......

Our Dear Lara was looking out the window and called out that she could " see " Georgie. We did not know what she was talking about.
We went over to her and she pointed out the window and said...

" Look there is a rainbow that Georgie has just sent us"
We asked why it was from him....she look at us as if we were silly.

Her reply was.... of cause it is from Georgie who could " smile " so brightly and put it into a rainbow and make it more pretty than it should be.
We told her it could be any doggies rainbow, and her reply again was ..
It cant be from any other doggie you know Georgie can't phone and that is the only way he can " talk to us ".
We we so taken back .......

We asked her if that was George's rainbow who was the other one......her reply...... it was all his friends, but they dont have such a bright one as they were all " puffed out " from playing and that is why their rainbow was not as bright. ! ! ! !

How wonderful to have such beautiful thoughts..........


Smile !

In all the years that we had George, he always had this kinda of a smile when he looked at you.
It might of been when he was panting or even when he was about to give you a big sloppy kiss it was just there.

His eyes were another matter, they could give you a look " to kill " or that " I love you " smile

For this reason these few words are what I saw in George

You must have caught
a falling star
and store it
in your heart awhile
For all its brightness
is reflected
in the sparkle
of your smile
