Three years ago when I joined Dogster I was so excited to make new friends and join groups and get to know other Dogsters. It turned out that I made some great lasting friendships then and learned many things along the way. I never dreamed that I would ever be Dog of the Day much less Dog of the Week. Yesterday we came on Dogster early in the morning like we always do to do things in our various groups and then logged off. We came back on early afternoon and noticed there were presents on my page. Mom and I wondered what that was about since it was not my birthday and found out that I was Dog of the Week. I think Mom was even more excited than I was. She woke up Dad who was taking a nap to tell him. He pretended not to be too impressed but I know he was.
Mom made me some homemade Frosty Paws for a special treat! I know I will be quite the celebrity around our house this week although I think the bath and brushing Mom is talking about is a little over the top!
Thank you Dogster HQ for this honor. I really appreciate it and hearing congratulations from my friends has been wonderful and we love them all.

Today I conquered my fear of balloons and Mom and Dad and I sent up balloons to our beloved angels for Rainbow Bridge Day!
We had 4 balloons. One for Bailey One, one for our other departed, beloved family pets, one for Duncan (who has now been at The Bridge for one year) and one for Rocky who just left us and our other good Dogster/Catster friends that we miss so much.
When Mom bought the balloons she explained to the salesperson what they were for. The girl was so impressed with the idea that she said she would send up a balloon also for a pet that she recently lost.
We went out on the lawn and sent love with the balloons. There was a good wind and it carried the balloons off and we could see them heading for the Rainbow Bridge. I think we could hear the angels calling out as they received them there.
I think that it must be beautiful to see. All those balloons floating up to The Rainbow Bridge and all those angels gathering around to receive them.

Yesterday the temperature almost reached 70 degrees. Mom let me out in the backyard and I decided to go swimming in the standing water on top of the pool cover. She thinks March 10th might be a new record. I am always the first one in the pool (although technically I was not really IN the pool) and the last one out. I came back to be let in the house and she realized I was all wet. SURPRISE! She was not exactly delighted with me since I was just groomed on Monday! BOL! I say it is pool weather and Dad better get that cover off soon.

What a surprise! I woke up and went on Dogster and found out that I was the Diary Pick of the Day for Dogster. I was so excited to receive this honor. Thank you very much Dogster HQ for choosing me. I am trying to be more regular about writing in my diary!
We do not have anymore snow today, just little flurries but the snow is drifting in places because of high winds.
The new thing that is happening here is Mom went up in the attic and brought down these things called suitcases! She is putting clothes and stuff in them. I know what this means! They have done this before! It means that they are going somewhere and by the size of the suitcases I can see they are not taking me with them. Hmmmmppph!
Mom tells me I am going visiting at my furless sister's house and that means I will get to play with Bonnie for the next two weeks. Really that makes me happy but I will not let them know that. I want them to feel guilty about leaving me. I can't wait to get into Bonnie's food and toys.
Later today I found out that one of my very good friends is not well and both her parents are not well either.
Sassy, Sally and Jimmy you are in our prayers, always.

What a great day! I woke up and there was lots of snow. Then the grandkids came over to help us shovel out our driveway and I got to play with them in the snow too. I did lots of running and jumping and burying my nose in the snow. Everyone was shoveling and Dad had the snowblower and I got to be out there with them. David was throwing snowballs too! Those are hard to catch!
I hope I get to play in the snow again tomorrow!

We are supposed to get lots of snow tonight and I love the snow. For some reason Mom and Dad do not enjoy it like I do.
Today Dad took me to the forest preserve and I ran in the snow. That is the most fun of all. I just love checking it all out there and as soon as Mom or Dad pulls into the parking lot I start scratching at the window to get out of the car. I hope they take me back there tomorrow too!
The snow has already started falling! I will see how much there is when I wake up.

Today 2 Spots n' a Dox posted this poem in response to Noah going to The Rainbow Bridge and I want to save it.
A poem by Genie Graveline)
I Miss My Dog.. ......
I miss my dear and faithful friend.
We traveled through the years together,
he and I, each watching the other grow older.
he was the keeper of my heart-
aware of my ups and downs,
responsive to my needs,
affectionate and true.
My life is different now without him.
It's strange to come home
and not hear his familiar bark,
or see that tail wagging furiously
back and forth--so happy just to see me.
I sit...expecting him to run over and nudge me,
or put his head in my lap,
but, he doesn't come.
he is not there.
This place is not the same without him.
Still, I know that I was lucky
to have him for so long.
I keep telling myself that.
But, whenever I feel like it,
I'm going to have myself a good cry,
and I won't be shamed by my tears.
It's the least I can do
to mourn such a loyal and devoted friend.
Mom thought this poem was very meaningful and touched her and we are going to save it. The parents that she meets on Dogster love their dogs so much and it we all feel their sadness and hurt when one crosses over to The Rainbow Bridge. We all feel the loss.

Once again Santa Paws was very good to me. I received wonderful pressies from all my secret Santa Paws.
Thank you George Underwood!
Thank you Mr. Duffy McDuff!
Thank you George!
I also received some wonderful pressies from my friends.
Thank you Buttercup!
Thank you Kipper and Winston!
Thank you Paxton and Idgie!
Thank you Animal Outfitters! (My doggy day care)
My cousin Bonnie brought me a pressie and we opened all our gifts last night together. Bonnie and I enjoyed playing with all the toys together, it did not matter who they were for. We shared and we were good about it too. We also sampled some of the delicious treats that we got.
This has been so much fun to receive all the cards and packages in the mail. I get way more than the rest of my family. They get something called bills, which judging from their expression is not anything that I would want to receive!
I also want to thank all my friends that left me pressies on my page! I hope I thanked you all for being so good to me.

This has been quite a year in my little life, at home and here on Dogster.
I lost some good friends but also prayer and power of the paw has helped some of my other friends. Keeping that going for these friends and their families. It was especially hard losing Duncan this year. He is still my special angel.
I had a wedding on Dogster and it was well attended and Duncan and I were touched by the love and friendship we recieved.
I played matchmaker at my wedding and paired up our friend Crissy with our friend Yuji. I found out today that he proposed to her. I am so excited about that. I hope next time I go to St. Louis, Crissy will be able to come and meet us since she lives in Missouri.
I also got to be the preacher at Penny Ann and Duke's wedding at Fancypants Cafe.
I have enjoyed working on activities in my main groups and treasure the friendships that I have made there.
I went to visit good Dogster friends this year in St. Louis and even got to stay in a hotel. Mom and Dad also went to visit some other Dogster friends even further away without me, unfortunately. I have enjoyed my agility classes and swimming and playing with my doggy friends.
Mom and Dad have been taking me to the forest preserve and letting me run in the snow. I enjoy going there during the year but usually there are a few months here where we do not go there. It is really fun in the winter and I hope we keep doing that.
I hope that this coming year will bring happiness and health for my friends and their families.
