We still miss our big old woolly girl. It does not seem like it has been four years since you left us.
There have been many comings and a couple of goings in the last two years. First, as you know, Lexie joined y'all a couple days after her 13th birthday a year ago last May thanks to cancer. We have been joined by Max, Nadia, Kiska, Kodi, Kane, Georgia, Turbo, Taz, Blue, Merlin, Sasha, Yukon and Isis. Kodi was adopted by a Dogster friend a few weeks after we rescued him. He is living in MD. Missy lost her tail back in December thanks to a tumor which turned out to be cancerous. We had thought it was gone but the cancer showed up again a bout six weeks ago. She is taking Pred which seems to help keep the tumor in check but it won't cure it and there isn't much else that we can do now but keep her comfortable.
We hope you are having a ball with Aileron, AJ, Tasha, Rustie and Lexi while you wait for the rest of us to join you.
We love you.

It has been two years since you left us so suddenly that night. It doesn't seem possible that it has been that long, but it has. To say that we miss you would be an understatement.
There have been some comings and goings around here since you left.
As you know, little Tasha, who eerily reminded us so much of you, crossed the Bridge and joined you, Aileron and AJ on the other side last November. She was never a replacement for you but rather just another little girl in need like you were when you joined us.
Rustie crossed in early January. We sometimes wonder if she took the place that she held here as the alpha female of the pack. Knowing her, I suspect she did. You were never one to make waves so I suspect you had no objection.
Lucas joined us a week after Rustie left. He is a very special boy, and I think you would have liked him a lot. Then a couple of weeks after Lucas arrived, Panda joined us. Max (2) joined the pack in early May. I think you would like both of them too although you would have had a hard time keeping up with Max being that he is still only about 7 months old and a bundle of energy. There may be another "little" boy in need joining us in the near future. Time will tell.
Zoe had a tumor on her leg removed in May. It proved to be cancer, but it appears that Dr. Darlene got it all and that Zoe is good to go ..... it never even slowed her down!
We found that Mischka has cataracts in both eyes like Queen did. We hope to be able to get them treated in the future. Everyone else is doing fine . Even Lexie, though considering her age, I suspect she will be the next one to join you. Hopefully not too soon though.
Please know that we still love you, and the rest of our pack on the far side of the Bridge, and hope that y'all will wait patiently for the rest of us to join you in the future.

It is hard to believe that it has been a year since you left us so suddenly. Believe me when I say that you are greatly missed. What I would give to see you out on "patrol" along the edges of the yard.
There has been a few changes around here since you left us last year. First, Tasha came into our lives. It is uncanny how much she looks like you. The same colored "wooly" coat. The way she walks. She is a bit smaller and has brown eyes instead of your blue eyes. I think you would have loved to pal around with her.
Also a couple of months ago Nakita and Mischka joined the pack.
As you know Rustie is still around. We really thought she would have been the first to go. I am sure that she will be joining you, Aileron and AJ sooner rather than later. She is going downhill with her lung problems and it is getting more and more noticable. And the smoke from the two swamp fires drifting in all the time isn't helping her any.
As I said, you are greatly missed, Both your mom and me still have a hard time viewing your Dogster page without tearing up somewhat. But we both know you are waiting at the bridge with Aileron and AJ for us to join you.
