Arrival Story:
After the passing of Rhys I was thinking about getting another dog but I wasn't sure I was ready. A friend of a friend had a mixed breed female that recently had puppies. I agreed to go look at the puppies but said "I'm not ready for a new puppy just yet". When I got there I saw a number of primarily black puppies that were all playing with each other and showed no interest in any human companionship. Then a big bellied, little yellow guy came over and put himself right at my feet. When he looked up at me it was "love at first sight". He's been with me ever since and continues to brighten up my days.

I love my family and try my best to be a good boy eventhough I always seem to be getting "hurt" some how. I'm always managing to get scrapes from chasing squirrels up trees in the back yard or boo-boos from playing to rough with Kea. Mom says I have a dueling scar from the time I developed an auricular hematoma that had to be drained. While I healed just fine, my left ear is now floppy at the top and doesn't want to stand up any more. I worry about Yoda when she doesn't move as fast as she once did (of course she's at least 16, if not older) and try to run to her aid when I hear her call. I just love attention and every morning I sit on Mom's lap when she is having her coffee and watching the early news.

The Trials and Tribulations of Darius

Dog of the Day

Wow, I'm a Dog of the Day. I'm sure that Momma will be smiling when she reads that. I can't wait to share the news with all my new friends here at the Rainbow Bridge.

I can tell that Kea is missing me as much as Momma is. She walks around the house "looking for me" with her nose since she can't see with her eyes any more. She mopes a little bit so its good for both her and Momma that they can spend some time together before Momma has to go back to her Fellowship in Georgia.


On Crossing Over

Yesterday Momma helped me cross the Rainbow Bridge. I wasn't a happy boy any more. I was in lots of pain and didn't want to eat. I know that Momma is sad that I'm not with her and Kea any more but I'm in a much better place. I'm running and playing with all my new friends. I' with my sister Yoda again and I got to meet Rhys. The tree of us will take care of Momma and make sure that she isn't too sad. We'll send lots of hugs and kisses from the Rainbow Bridge.

Momma came back from her Fellowship last night to be with me one more time. I've been having a very hard time the last couple of years. Walks aren't fun any more and are more like work. I can't remember where I am and I get "stuck" behind things. I don't like my food and I hurt all over. I told Momma that I need to cross over the Rainbow Bridge and not to hold on to me any longer. I think that she listened cuz she told me last night that it would be better for me soon.
