Mommy Smells

July 4th 2011 6:11 am
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

Sad news - our cat brother Chewtoy has arrived at the bridge. That nasty cancer finally did him in. But we are so proud of him. He really gave it a good fight.

We were delighted to be reunited with him again but know Mommy is devastated. Raffles and Maleka and I were over the moon because Chewie still had Mommy smells on him when he arrived. We all slept with him that first night and took him to the wishing star so he could look in on Mommy and Quigley and Priscilla. We go there every night just to blow kisses to Mommy. Sometimes we see her on the back porch looking up at us and we're pretty sure she catches a few of our kisses.

Grandma lives upstairs from Mommy now and she has early dementia and smokes so we know Mom is facing a lot of stress right now. Mom hopes that Grandma will forget that she smokes. We're going to try and pull some strings and work on that. Hang in there Mommy.

Gotta run. Big party today. Raffles and Pongo are in charge of entertainment today and won't give me any details. That worries me. But Ariana and Cleo said Stryker and his pals are at the ready so that's a relief. Everyone is so anxious to welcome Chewie. They will fall in love with his big blue eyes. Raffles is being goofy and telling pups that Maleka and Chewie are twins from different fathers. I don't know what goes on in that boy's brain.

Everyone welcome - cats and dogs alike - please come to the party.

Birthday Boy

Maleka, Chewtoy and I have our work cut out for us tonight. Today is Monkey Face's (Raffles) birthday, and we all know how that boy likes to party. He and his possee will want to paint the town. We remember what happened last year. At least we were able to destroy all the incriminating photos from last year's party, but we had to cash in a few favors. Luckily this year our numbers have increased because Chewie is here. One more body to help keep the insanity in check. We've come up with a better plan this year thanks to Chewie and his new cat friends and all of our friends.

So let's get this party started, the little guy is ready to roll.

Everyone's invited. Just follow the lights and the music, you'll find us.

And remember this year, cameras will be checked at the door.

It's My birthday Again

Wow time really flys up here at the Bridge. It's my birthday again. I forgot all about it. Apparently there's a party today for me. Boy did they keep that a secret for awhile. I bet Maleka had to sit on Raffles so he wouldn't blab. They told me this morning. I knew something was up when Raffles came in with cake frosting on his chubby little face. Princess Ariana and the gals are busy baking. It smells marvelous. Everyone is invited. It should be a fun day.

I can't believe its' been so long since I've written in my diary. I just get so caught up in the business (Flying Paws) and keeping Raffles in line is a full time job. Thankfully I have Maleka to help me.


I always get weepy on my birthday remembering Mom and the great times we had together. She always said I was the love of her life and she is mine. I know one day we will cuddle together again.

 

Love You Mommy

Another Mother's Day without my Mom's loving caresses. But all the love she sends up to me heals my heart. I know Mom is still hurting. I was her best girl.

Hang in there Mom - one day we will be together again.

Kudos for being Mom to those two Bostonians. They look like a handful.

Watch over you every night.

Love you always Mom.

Callie

P.S. Raffles and Maleka and Chewie send their love. Don't worry we take care of each other.

 

The Day After - Resting Up

We had the most fantastic 4th of July barbecue yesterday. I know there were a lot of parties going on, but our turnout was amazing. Once we realized how many pups (and some felines) were showing up, we put the word out and everyone brought something. We didn't have to worry about running out of food.

But we always run out of Ariana's savory tarts. They were a big hit as always. She is a crafty minx, no one knows her secret recipe, not even me her roommate. She tells me I've almost got it, just missing one ingredient. She scoots me out of the kitchen when she puts it in. One day I'll get it out of her. It's driving me crazy.

The boys, Raffles, Pongo and Stryker were on the first shift at the barbeque grill, then got to mingle when their shift was done. Raffles insisted we do the same thing with the kitchen crew. That way everyone got to relax and enjoy the day.

I must say I really enjoyed myself yesterday and Raffles scheduling plan was impressive. I didn't think he had it in him. He's a pretty good organizer (don't tell him I said that).

Our brother (feline) Chewtoy came by with a bunch of his cat friends and he and our sister Maleka were busy bonding. They had a connection before the four of us became a family. Raffles insists that these two are brothers with different mothers because of their steely blue eyes. Please someone tell my brother Chewtoy is a Cat.

Now I know how Priscilla feels about Quigley, Raffles can be a doorknob sometimes too.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend Mom - You deserve it.

 

It's My BIrthday

Wow, Raffles just reminded me it's my birthday. He said I didn't have to do a darn thing today, he would handle it. We'll see how that works. He's very high maintenance.

But I can handle that I'll be the lady of leisure.

I know Mommy is missing me something fierce. We were both the loves of our lives.

Love you mommy - bunches and bunches and then some.

Callie

Thanks Dogster for selecting me as one of the diary picks of the day yesterday. Raffles is so jealous. It was a fun day.

We're all resting up from the Thanksgiving feast. We even closed "Flying Paws" diary services for a 4 day weekend. Give everyone a break to lay around. Back to business on Monday.

Have a great weekend my friends.

 

Cake and Baloons - does life get any better than this

Wow - thanks everyone for the cake and balloons. It was too late too reciprocate to everyone so we just wanted to thank you.


Mom, and the Bostonians are being very brave enduring a pretty brutal winter this year. I bet Quigley and Priscilla wish they had longer hair like Maleka and I. We will try to send some sunshine your way.

Quig and Priscilla - thanks for taking such good care of Mom.

 

I'm A Diary Pick

Oh my, just found out my face is the community page today. I love when this happens. Now Raffles has to do all chores today. My agenda included baking cookies. The girls in the kitchen are going to be beside themselves when they see my stout little brother in an apron.

Ariana, get that camera ready.

No worries, I will do all of Raffles chores. Oh wait a minute he really doesn't to anything so yours truly will have a very relaxing day.

Big fun.

 

Thank You

Dogster, you've made Mommy sing again. She was so depressed when she heard the community pages were shutting down. We just heard the news that all hope is not lost, and she is smiling again.

Dogster helped Mom through four of us going to the Bridge and I truly don't think she would have survived without all the support and compassion she received from the Dogster community.

We are so happy. Thank you.
