My Birthday

April 16th 2011 11:28 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

Today is my birthday or I should say yesterday. I was born April 16, 2011 in the kitchen of Mommy's house. I would have been 25 years old. We had a big party at the Rainbow Bridge today since 25 years is a very significant birthday. Thank-you pups for the pretty presents on my page and for the nice comments.

I never met Jelly but she sure is a cute little thing. I am enjoying watching her from the Bridge. She is doing a good job of looking after Mommy. Keep up the good work Jelly!

Mommy has been doing lots of de-cluttering because of our upcoming move and she came across this poem:

Hope all your doggie dreams come true
All day, may people pamper you.
May your snacks be really yummy
And may someone scratch your tummy.
May you find a cozy place to snooze
And may you do just as you choose.

My Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday. We celebrated it in style at the Bridge. We had an all day party with games, squirrels to chase and all the yummy food a pup could want. What a blast we had! Angel Jennifer was there as well as all the other Dogster Angel pups.

I was born on April 16, 1986 so if I was still on earth that would have made me 23 years old. I sure don't feel like I am 23 years old because I am feeling great and running and playing like a pup. That is what happens when you go to the Bridge. I want to thank all pups for their well wishes and the presents on my page to celebrate my birthday. Thanks pups!


Murphy Arrived Today

My friend Murphy joined me at the Rainbow Bridge today. He was a 14 year old black Miniature Schnauzer from Brampton, Ontario. Murphy is now free of pain and playing like a puppy here in the clouds. I was there along with other Miniature Schnauzers to greet Murphy upon his arrival. I know this is a very difficult time for his family and our thoughts and prayers are with them. Hopefully they can take comfort in knowing that he is doing fine and is with his pals while he waits to be reunited with his loved ones.


Rescued Dog Christmas Poem

Tis the night before Christmas and all through the town,
Every shelter is full - we are lost but not found,
Our numbers are hung on our kennels so bare,
We hope every minute that someone will care,
They'll come to adopt us and give us the call,
"Come here, Max and Sparkie - come fetch your new ball!!

But now we sit here and think of the days..
We were treated so fondly - we had cute, baby ways,
Once we were little, then we grew and we grew -
Now we're no longer young and we're no longer new.

So out the back door we were thrown like the trash,
They reacted so quickly - why were they so rash?
We "jump on the children:, "don't come when they call",
We "bark when they leave us", climb over the wall.

We should have been neutered, we should have been spayed,
Now we suffer the consequence of the errors THEY made.
If only they'd trained us, if only we knew...
We'd have done what they asked us and worshiped them, too.
We were left in the backyard, or worse -let to roam-
Now we're tired and lonely and out of a home.
They dropped us off here and they kissed us good-bye...

"Maybe someone else will give you a try."
So now here we are, all confused and alone...
In a shelter with others who long for a home.
The kind workers come through with a meal and a pat,
with so many to care for, they can't stay to chat,
They move to the next kennel, giving each of us cheer...

We know that they wonder how long we'll be here.
We lay down to sleep and sweet dreams fill our heads..
Of a home filled with love and our own cozy beds.
Then we wake to see sad eyes, brimming with tears --
Our friends filled with emptiness, worry, and fear.

If you can't adopt us and there's no room at the Inn --
Could you help with the bills and fill our food bin?
We count on your kindness each day of the year --
Can you give more than hope to everyone here?
Please make a donation to pay for the heat...
And help get us something special to eat.
The shelter that cares for us wants us to live,
And more of us will, if more people will give.


Christmas Poem

This is a very informative Christmas Poem. Share it with everyone you know. It is a funny way to express the sad truth about Puppy mills and Pet Shops Post it far and wide, who knows it might stop even one person from running to buy a Christmas pup in a Pet Store.

Merry Christmas: From Ye Olde Puppy Shoppe !!!

We love our puppy customers -
They're our #1 bread and butter,
Especially right now at Christmas time
With their MasterCards all a-flutter.

Oh sure, they've heard about puppymills -
They don't live in a cave.
The tree-huggers dreamed THAT whole thing up.
They're really quite depraved!

All OUR pups came from "Local Breeders".
These signs around TELL you so;
We paint 'em up and hang 'em high
'Cause we want you to know!

"We don't put a price on honesty but
That pup will cost eight hundred dollars.
You don't think that we make the big bucks
Selling fish food and martingale collars!"

But back to our Christmas Greeting
And why we wish you all Good Cheer;
You see, you are $pecial folks to us
At this festive time of year.

We love you because you're lazy,
Though very well-connected.
You just won't take the time to find
A breeder who's respected.

You so rarely do your homework.
(Santa, send us MORE trusting fellas
With no time to learn about Legg Perthes
or Luxating Patellas!)

Zoonotic's not a word you learned
Playing Scrabble or at school?
Color Mutant Alopecia ? Duh!
We LOVE it, man, you're COOL!!!

Cryptorchids must be flowers from Hawaii you say?
We will sure not tell you better.
And you don't need to know Brucellosis, my friend,
Unless, of course, you get 'er!!!

You think that CERF-ing's what cool dudes do
Somewhere out in California?
And OFA's just another old workplace law?
We're sure not going to warn you!

But should we stumble upon someone
Who IS savvy in any way,
We'll just start extolling the wonderful work
Of the grand ole USDA !!!

We love you 'cause you just don't care -
You buy it because you want it.
You can lay your cash on OUR counter, ma'am,
If you've got it, you OUGHT to flaunt it!!!

We love the things you DON'T ask!!!
It makes our job so easy.
If you saw the sights behind the scene
You'd get quite queasy.

You'll never see the breeding dogs
Who suffer on the wire,
Or pups die of hyper-thermia
When their truck gets a flat tire.

We'll keep you from our back room, too,
And put a padlock on the freezer.
Those tiny puppies stiff and cold
Would not be a crowd pleaser.

We hope you have a vet you like -
That pup's probably gonna need him.
Ivomec wears off in thirty days -
That's how long we've guaranteed him!!!

Who cares when you get that blue slip home
And find out that it wasn't true.
Your Local Breeder's way out in Kansas?
HO! HO! HO! That joke's on you!!!

So come and see us,one and all -
Join in our Christmas Cheer!
We've strung the tinsel all around.
If we could, we'd serve you beer!

We've got the carols playing
And a Santa, for good reason;
We're all scrubbed up and lookin' good
So you'll make our Christmas season.

As you walk away with your new pup
We'll shed a happy Christmas tear.
Don't change ONE THING about yourself-
Just DO come back next year!!!
(ka- ching !!!)


Today is my Birthday!

Today is my Birthday and Jennifer and I have been partying all day at the Bridge. I was born on April 16, 1986. I was born in our rec room in the basement and I come from a litter of four. My Mommy is a champion black Miniature Schnauzer and my Daddy is a very well known champion salt and peper Miniature Schnauzer. I was the only girl in my litter so I had to learn to stand up to those bad brothers of mine. I am salt and pepper, I had two salt and pepper brothers and one black brother. One of my salt and pepper brothers became a champion and the other one was a cherished family pet. My black brother was named Bullseye and he stayed with me at Mommy's. At six months of age we went to a sanction match dog show and Bullseye won best in match! I was so excited for him. After that tragedy struck and Bullseye got parvo at 7 months of age in spite of having his shots. He made it through the parvo but died when a blood clot broke loose and caused him to have a heart attack. We were all so sad about that. I then knew I had to carry on the flame for the both of us so I did! I became an American and a Canadian champion! Mommy was so proud of me!

I know Mommy has been thinking lots about me today. If I was still alive I would be 22 years old which is almost impossible. I had a great life on earth and I really loved my Mommy and I know she loves me.


Party Time

Today we are having a party at the Bridge to celebrate Jennifer's 1 year annifursary at the Bridge. Yes, it is sad that Jennifer had to leave Mommy and Jelly but Jennifer is much happier at the Bridge free of pain. She still watches over Mommy like I do. I have been at the Bridge for 8 years and I remember when Jennifer arrived last year. I was just so excited to see her because I hadn't seen her for 7 full years. My tail was just wagging and I was doing my little squeaking noise just like I always did when I was real excited. Jennifer and I are together all the time and we are enjoying our time here. We invited all the Dogster angels to come and join our party.


Happy St. Patrick's Day

I want to wish every pup and every angel pup a Happy St. Patrick's Day. I have been busy celebrating St. Patty's Day here at the Bridge. Jennifer and I have enjoyed a great day of running among the clouds. Here is a beautiful Irish poem that I would like to share:

Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there... I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow...
I am the diamond glints on snow...
I am the sunlight on ripened grain...
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you waken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of gentle birds in circling flight...
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry—
I am not there... I did not die...


What an Honour!

I just can't believe it! I am one of the diary picks on Dogster today. This is just so exciting! I haven't been on Dogster as long as Jelly and Jennifer have been and this is the first time I have had the spot light on me. It is just such an honour to think that my diary is one of the picks for today. Thank-you Dogster! Special thanks to all the pups for their sweet congratulations. I will always remember this special day. I have been cloud hopping at the Bridge all day because I am so excited! Thanks everypup!
