My dearest Princess,
If I could visit heaven,
Even for a day,
Maybe for a moment,
The pain would go away,
I'd put my arms around you,
And whisper words so true,
That living life without you,
Is the hardest thing to do.
No matter how I spend my days,
No matter what I do,
No morning dawns or evening falls,
When I don't think of you.
It's been a month today....it seems like a life....I know you're near me, I feel you, I wish I could reach out and touch you...I know you are pain free and happy now but still I miss you so. No I won't shed any more tears baby, I don't wanna make you sad, I just want to let you know you will always live in my heart. I love you Nikki, wait fur me pawlease....till we can be together again.

I know....and I'm sorry about it.
Today I have to let you know that my lady has gone to The Bridge, she flew yesterday and eventhough I know she's free and happy I miss her tons. Please spare a prayer for her pawrents and for me if you please.
Here's a letter I sent to my other mother, Nikki's Mom:
Please dry your tears....I miss her so much too but, I know our tears make our little Princess sad too. We gotta smile whenever we think of her, that's the way she wants it to be. I know I'm just a little dog and I may not understand lots of things but what I do know is
hat I am grateful cos Nikki came into my life, she brought so much happiness and light to my furry heart, and she will always live here *taps his little chest*.
Know what Mom Barb?, you won't believe this, last night I dreamed of her!!!!...yes, she was so pretty with her beautiful angel wings....I'm so in love with a fur-angel!...you know her well...I was sound sleep after having cried so much and it seems I didn't heard her calling at first, so she came down and pulled my ears! that's my girl! after that, she kissed me with the sweetest kiss I've ever felt...I opened my eyes and couldn't believe my eyes! there was my baby, the prettiest angel ever...she put her tiny paw on my muzzle, seems she want me to keep it shut...some things never change you know, bol...
and then she barked, sweetly and low:
"My dearest Prince", I'm still her Prince , Mom, "I want you to talk to my Mom about this visit, I do not want you, my loved ones, to feel sad fur me, I am in the most beautiful place there can be. It is so peaceful and full of light, the air is so pure I don't cough anymore, no pain, no discomfort, all you breath is happiness, peace."
"I already ran into some old furiends and they have all been wonderful to me.
Oh dear, you are gonna luv this one, I ran into a mutt (excuse the expression) with the most amazing wings you can think of and he walked right to me, I was still in shock and kinda scared, but then he smiled and barked with a deep bark "I'm Brandy II, welcome to The Bridge fursister, now I understand Brandy III bragging so loud 'bout his wife, you are a real Princess my dear", he smiled again and kept walking to the next cloud. It was your brother!!!! so handsome and strong!"
"Tell Mum my little sis Brandy is here with me, My Dog! she is the most beautiful furangel I've met, just as I got here she was there waiting, she ran and bumped into me with such a big hug we both fell down and rolled over a couple of clouds giggling so loud other furangels joined our laughs too. Brandy and I have been together ever since, just like we used to were back home, Mom"
When she saw my tears starting to flow she smiled and caressing my face continued:
"Please hun, tell all those crying fur me that I don't wanna see them cry, it makes me sad you know, just think of me with a smile, remember all the moments we shared, keep the memories in your hearts, and know that I will always be there near you all."
"Tell my Mom to look fur me, she'll find me everywhere, in each butterfly fluttering around, in each flower she smells, I'll be in each drop of rain, and in the morning dew you see on the grass; I'll be in the brightest star you can see at night, and if you look real close you'll see me taking a peek down from a comfy cloud, maybe I'll be allowed to bark a bit at all of you from there. I know it will be hard, you will miss me as much as I miss you, but someday we will be together again, till then remember me and feel me cos I will live in your hearts."
"Before I fly back, sweetie, I need you to tell my Mom that she is the most wonderful Mom there could ever be, she always fought so hard fur me, and I will never be able to thank her enough fur always being there fur me. Tell her I luv her furry much and that not to worry cos I'm eating like a little....oh well, she'll know, tee-hee. Luv you all, Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters, all our furiends and families, and specially you my furever Prince. Remember I'll be watching over you all. Be good dear husband, I'll wait fur you, babe"
Then she smiled, we kissed, and she disappeared in the light.
Do you think it was a dream Mom Barb? I don't think so, I think an angel came to me last night.
Brandy III ~
God Bless you all.

...well…, I wasn’t ever born when tragedy struck.
Ever since I came to live with my Mom, which was the year I was born, 2006, and this date gets near my Mom talks to me about what happened on September 11, 2001. Her eyes get wet and she just keeps silence till I paw or lick her hand. She then picks me up and starts telling me about all the sadness in those 9/11 memories.
This time I had a question in my mind, and since my mother seems to be able to read my mind & soul, she just smiled at me and said:
"Did you ever wonder where God was on September 11? Did you ever wonder why God let that happen?” “well sweetie” (that’s me, of course…) “This poem sums it up, and answers the question to "Where was God on Sept 11?" “I read it somewhere a couple of years ago and I think it could help answer some questions for you”:
Where Was God On September 11, 2001?
"I know you're mad at Me right now. That's alright. People have been mad at Me before and will be again. Being mad is part of being human. My Son got mad, too. It's all right to be mad sometimes at injustice, for example, or the lack of charity."
"You probably think I am unjust and uncharitable when an airplane goes down like that. All those people lost. The children gone. It doesn't seem right; it can't be loving. You ask, 'Where was God?' Why did He allow that to happen?"
"I allow it to happen because I allow you freedom. I could have left you on a string and made you dance all day without getting tired. I could have moved your mouth for you and made you sing all night without growing hoarse. I could have pulled a wire that would have let you soar skyward and never fall."
"I could have, but I didn't because I love you so much. I want you to be free to decide when to dance and sing. Free to determine when you will come to Me in faith and hope. Because you are free, some of you choose not to dance or sing. Some of you select hatred over love, revenge over forgiveness, bombs over a helping hand. As you choose, I watch. I do not disappear. I listen to both the songs and the bombs. AND I REMEMBER."
"Where was God?" you wonder...I was there. I whispered in the ear of a little girl, 'Don't be afraid, I am with you.' I held the hand of a business woman as tightly as she clutched mine. I cradled a pilot against my shoulder as if he were a baby again."
"Amid the paralyzing fear, I was there, as I was there with my Son in the garden. Amid the unbearable pain, I was there, as I was with Him as He was whipped. Amid the terrible realization that life was ending too soon, I was there, with Him as He hung on the cross and asked, like you, "My God, why have you forsaken Me?"
"I had not forsaken Him. I did not forsake them. I was there as they fell, and as they rose to eternal joy. I listened to their anger, answered their questions and showed them why they had been created. Not to end that way, but to live with Me forever."
"In an instant, they came into existence. As you did. In an instant, they left this world. As you will. But beyond that last instant, I kept my promise... A little girl dances, a business woman sings, and a pilot keeps his wings forever."
After she finished, she kept silence and we both shared silence. Yes Mom, I think that I do understand now, He, our Loving Father is always with us, we just have to open our hearts to Him and trust.
~~~To this day, many people ask God why He could let this happen...but many fail to see that God was there embracing those who desired to see Him even in the midst of unspeakable tragedy. Take a moment to pray and pay respect to all those effected by 9/11 and share this with your family and friends, I just did~~~~
LET US NEVER FORGET!

Things you can, and should, learn from a dog:
1. Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.
2. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
3. When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
4. When it's in your best interest, always practice obedience.
5. Let others know when they've invaded your territory.
6. Take naps and always stretch before rising.
7. Run, romp and play daily.
8. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
9. Be loyal.
10. Never pretend to be something you're not.
11. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
12. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
13. Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
14. Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
15. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
16. On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
17. When you are happy, dance around and wag your entire body. (this feels great I practice it several times each day)
18. No matter how often you are criticized, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout.
Run right back and make friends.
OK? better learn your lesson, take it from me, I'm the happiest pooch on earth. *twirls*

Hiya Diary! long time no see, right? bol... Well, I just came to illustrate you pal, I just read an interesting article at Care2 and thought it would be nice to share it with you, maybe there are a few things you didn't know *wink*....so, here it is:
~~~~The Origins of Easter~~~~
The name Easter comes from Eastre, an ancient Anglo-Saxon goddess, originally of the dawn. In pagan times an annual spring festival was held in her honor. Some Easter customs have come from this and other pre-Christian spring festivals. Others come from the Passover feast of the Jews, observed in memory of their deliverance from Egypt. The resurrection of Jesus took place during the Passover. In the early days of Christianity Easter and the Passover were closely associated.
Prior to A.D. 325, Easter was celebrated on different days of the week, including Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In that year, the Council of Nicaea was convened by emperor Constantine. They issued the Easter Rule which places Easter on the first Sunday after the first full moon on or after the vernal equinox (first day of Spring). Therefore, Easter must be celebrated on a Sunday between the dates of March 22 and April 25.
LentPreceding Easter Sunday is the 40-day penitential season of Lent, beginning on Ash Wednesday and concluding at midnight on Holy Saturday. Lent is a season of prayer, abstinence, and fasting. This is observed in memory of the 40 days' fast of Christ in the desert. Lent is observed for six weeks and four days by the Western Christian churches that include Saturday and Sunday into the total. In Eastern Orthodox churches Lent is 50 days since they do not count Saturdays or Sundays.
Shrove Tuesday, the day before the beginning of Lent, was designed as a way to "get it all out" before the sacrifices of Lent began. Known the world over as Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) or Carnival. It is celebrated in many cities, the most famous American city being New Orleans, LA.
Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, gets its name from the practice, mainly in the Roman Catholic church, of putting ashes on the foreheads of the faithful to remind them that man is but dust.
Holy WeekPalm Sunday: This is held on the Sunday before Easter Sunday. It recalls Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem one week before his execution.
Holy Monday: commemorates Jesus' cleansing of the temple, when he assaulted money changers and overturned their tables. Some believe that this triggered his arrest and crucifixion.
Holy Tuesday: recalls Jesus' description to his disciples on the Mount of Olives of the destruction of Jerusalem.
Holy Wednesday: (once called Spy Wednesday) recalls Judas' decision to betray Jesus in exchange for 30 pieces of silver.
Maundy Thursday: commemorates the Last Supper, Jesus' agony in the garden and his arrest.
Good Friday: recalls Jesus' death on the cross. The origin of the word "good" has been lost. Some claim that it is a corruption of "God" and that the early Christians called this day "God's Friday." Others claim that "good" refers to the blessings of humanity that Christians believe arose as a result of Jesus' execution.
Holy Saturday: (a.k.a. Easter Eve) is the final day of Holy Week and of Lent.
Easter Sunday: commemorates Jesus' resurrection. In the early church, converts were baptized into church membership on this day after a lengthy period of instruction. This tradition continues today in some churches.
SymbolsMany Easter symbols and customs come from the Old World.
The Cross is the symbol of the Crucifixion, as opposed to the Resurrection. However, at the Council of Nicaea, in A.D. 325, Constantine decreed that the Cross was the official symbol of Christianity. The Cross is not only a symbol of Easter, but it is more widely used, especially by the Catholic Church, as a year-round symbol of their faith.
The white lily symbolizes the Resurrection. Yet, lillies have long been revered by pagans of various lands as a holy symbol associated with reproduction. It was considered a phallic symbol!
The Easter Bunny
The Easter Bunny also originated with the pagan festival of Eastre. The goddess, Eastre, was worshipped by the Anglo-Saxons through her earthly symbol, the rabbit.
The Germans brought the symbol of the Easter rabbit to America. It was widely ignored by other Christians until shortly after the Civil War. Easter itself was not widely celebrated in America until after that time.
The Easter Egg
The exchange of eggs in the springtime is a custom that was centuries old when Easter was first celebrated by Christians. The egg was a symbol of rebirth in most cultures. Eggs were often wrapped in gold leaf or, if you were a peasant, colored brightly by boiling them with the leaves or petals of certain flowers.
Today, children hunt colored eggs and place them in Easter baskets along with the modern version of real Easter eggs -- plastic eggs filled with chocolate candy.

~@~@~An Irish Prayer ~@~@~
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
BLESSINGS TO ALL,

The Wolf Credo, by Del Goetz, truly captures what the wolf is all about:
Respect the elders
Teach the young
Cooperate with the pack.
Play when you can
Hunt when you must
Rest in between.
Share your affections
Voice your feelings
Leave your mark.
