Those of you who are friends with Troy (the Guiding Dog) and Hudson and Angel Soleil the cat will know that their Mum, Elizabeth has been seriously ill with cancer but had fought on for some time.
Sadly her husband called me this morning with the news had Elizabeth passed on Saturady morning.
He was happy that I could log into her account and pass on this news as diaries on all 3 of her pages as so many of us loved her dearly.
I can add nothing to the Diary I wrote and put on her pages except that there is a special Light on High that is Elizabeth's shining Spirit.
Below is what I oput on her pages.....
"....This is Pam, Flicka and Lucas's Mum.........(http://www.dogster.com/dogs/655533)
It is with great sadness I need to pass on the news
that Elizabeth passed away on Saturday 27th October.
She will have a Mass said and a Cremation on 10th November.
Her husband Mark who was her wonderful soul-mate and friend phoned me this morning with this sad news.
Elizabeth had the most amazing Love and Faith.
Both kept her steadfast to the very end.
Her dogs , Troy, her Guiding Dog Hudson and her cat Angel Soleil were her passions and her loves as was her music.
She and a friend as singers brought beauty and light to many with their wonderful voices.
Mark.... Elizabeth's husband will carry on loving and caring for Troy , Hudson and Angel Soleil.
There is nothing that makes it easy for those who continue to love her except perhaps the knowledge that she is secure in her Faith that they will meet again in the fullness of time.
Mark.... many will hold you close and be there for you as well.... and Troy and Hudson and Angel Soleil will help you with their Love.
Sail on Fair Winds and Calm Seas
Elizabeth . You were and always will be much loved.
I(Pam) will continue to look in to these Diaries and pass on your love and words..."

Once again John and Wesley came to visit us ! This is a wonderful third time now.
They arrived at around 6.30pm Sunday after a 960 mile drive the day before !
John is a wonderful and special soul... and this was a much looked forward to visit. Wes is a gentle boy... shy and reserved.
As most of you know Lucas is fine with folk and furs.. but Flicka has had issues we have had to work hard at. He was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT with John !!! Made me proud. It was harder thing with Wes but it went ok.
We all had time to walk and talk and eat and chat. They left for the next leg of their journey West about 11am today (Monday).
Take Care "Boys" you mean a great deal to us...see you next year....
PHOTOS here (and will be a few on our pages...)

Flicka says his secretary isnt keeping up well !!!
MANY MANY THANKS for all the love and good wishes for My Boy on his 6th Birthday(this was the date he and I decided on when he rescued me !). He is and always will be "work in progress." but he would give his life for me. He (and Lucus) are the last things I touch at night and the first things I touch in the morning. He is .. they are.. my heartbeat.. and that is something here we all understand.
So many Blessings for Flicka.... ( I tried to note all... but forgive me if I have missed anyone... let me know !)

Rememberance Day ..... the 11th hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month. Armistice Day.
My Grandad was a muleateer in WWI... survival time rated 1 week ....and survived the 5 nightmare years. My Dad was on long range penetration behind enemy lines in Burma for 4 out of the 5 years of WWII .. survival time reckoned at 2 weeks... he did 4 years.. Neither talked about the horror and the nightmares... they spoke of the comradeship and selflessness of others.
I like all of us grew up honouring the men and women who bought our freedom with their lives.. and their hopes... and their bravery. Many since have continued this sacrifice in more pointless wars.. and there have been over the centuries amazing acts of sacrifice in the name of Freedom.
Freedom isnt Free and a "Right" isnt a Right... is earned.. with a few exceptions..... and all of us.. combatant.. or non-combatant have a duty of responsibility to see these sacrifices arent in vain.
My beloved Dad died 10th November 1984 .. he was just short of his 63rd birthday ... there is always an extra bitter-sweet about this time of year.
At the going down of the Sun and in the morning......
We will Remember Them
For the Fallen by Laurence Binyon
With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.
Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres,
There is music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England's foam.
But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the Night;
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.
We will remember them
In Flanders Fields
by Lt. Col. John McCrae, M.D. (1872-1918)
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

People have been p and e-mailing me... so this is the News !
Friday night we had another Quake.
We were 50 miles from the epicentre... Cleveland County... but we rattled and shook for around 10 seconds.
This is the earthquake fault that has been getting increasingly active for 2 yrs now.Its same one as we felt in Norman that October day last year (we have now moved to our own place as some of you know... peace and quiet.. no neighbours and 2 fenced acres!!) when I thought someone had smacked into the apartment building.
It was a real 10 second shaker Friday night... its a shallow fault.. so radiates fast been 14 plus aftershocks from it since then.... but it was doing 4.7s and many more all yesterday from early hours too. I had been following it on the USGS since early Thursday (when the 1st one hit).. and I submitted a report last night after to them. Its a record breaker for Oklahoma.. small as they go... but it can stay away if it likes !!
The dogs had been restive for 48 hrs.. !! Although its been quietly bumping away yesterday as well.. but we havent felt it.
Well... at 8.46pmCST tonight we had a small 3 second rattler of a 4.7 Nothing much... but showing the "last Hurrahs" arent over yet.
The dogs are becoming excellent Alerters !
All is Well...... Thankyou too to those asking.....
We have severe storms coming through tonight and are on a Tornado Watch ... may as well keep the adrenalin going I suppose !!

Visitors ! John and Wesley came to see us again !
Its amazing.. 100 days of 100F plus and today....it rained !! BUT.. we need it and it made for a nicer cooler visit !
SO...... it was SO good to see John and Wes again. They are on their way to the Grand Canyon and beyond for hiking. Most of you know that Flicka has had some big problemns we have had to work through. Meeting new folk.. and new dogs is still very hard for him. That makes the day today even more of a triumph. All went well.. and we even managed a real meet for the dogs. That.. for those who know what its been like... was more than I could have dreamed 5 years ago.
It was a wonderful visit.. and Lucas (bless my Little Alien !) was able to really have fun too... he joyfully has never had problems.. and it was so good to see HIM being able to have fun too.
Safe Journeys my friends... see you again next time round .. and John.... BE SAFE... you know what I mean !! We will be following the Journey !

Life is a circle...... one of my dearest friends in dogster died at 2pm today. Those of you who know "Geena" the Golden Retriever... it was her Mum ,Margo. Typically she didnt tell folk she had cancer.. just brushed it off telling folk other stuff so they didnt worry.
I have just spoken to her Frank at length.. he is doing ok right now.. and so is Geena. It has yet to really sink in. Again typically....... Margo wanted no fuss... the funeral is provisionally Monday (to be confirmed) . No viewing.. no flowers.. no fuss. Please.... just stop for a quiet moment and CELEBRATE her life .... she was a joy.. and is a treasure. I will miss her with all my heart. Who will I email with at 2am in the morn now......
The day in England on my trip home in March that I went to Westonbirt Arboretum... I took her spirit with me... and walked around that wonderful place "with her".She knew I was going that day .... and she said she felt me lift her spirit and take her with me.
Life IS a circle.... death hath no dominion when we CELEBRATE the jewel of Life. Just remember to tell someone you love them ... this jewel glows so briefly...

Comes in......sits down with a thud......wipes the tears away..... wonders how you type just how full your heart is.?
This was my day....
Last night after the stress of 6 weeks of getting to buy the house...... hurt alot.. took meds..
Didnt sleep with excitement and exhaustion.
Got up... hugged Lucas a Happy Birthday and attacked 53 emails about the house..,and Lucas birthday.
Fed the boys and walked them...
Jay and I got going on lists and phone calls to start Utility swaps.. needed to make sure Electric just carried over as it was nearly 100f today and we need A/C there. ( At the house we Closed on yesterday)
Went out.. bought boxes/tape/wrap... brought back to apt.. staggered upstairs with them.
Walked Boys.. hellish hot... Gave fuss to Lucas Bless him !
Left Boys here as we needed to go to new place and just walk the place.. do measuring....
Idiot me starts stacking fence posts in 100F.... not good idea but did stop before I got heat stroke
Panic.. that deer you saw in the pics... it lives with the horse you saw in the pics ... next door at new house .. Please please PLEASE Boys when you get here tomorrow for the 1st time BE GOOD for Mamma.
Panicing.. the grass has grown LOTS... NEED ride on mower fast... bargin with Jay. We are going Friday to order one. Will take me 2 days to mow once we get it sometime next week.

WONDERS WHY I have a FURTHER 45 Emials?????????????????
Ok........ Lucas has some super Loves sent to him .........
FLICKA HAS AN HONOURABLE MENTION IN ADOPT 11
If you have borne with me thus far.....
Most of us have gone through bad times in our lives when we simply didnt want to wake up. We have seen cruelties that are unspeakable... ached at the death of loved ones ..... BUT........
There are times when our hearts burst with JOY and wonder at the sheer kindness and goodness of people. This was one of THOSE GOOD times.
Yesterday... finally in my life I got the dream house and land I never believed I could have
I have the love of a wonderful man that I kissed many frogs to find....and when i did find him... he was 4500 miles from my home.
I have 2 WONDERFUL rescue boys who drive me crazy sometimes but give love so UNCONDITIONAL that it leaves me humbled.
The icing on the cake.. the love and friendship I found from folk on this site ... that I couldnt have imagined.
THANKYOU isnt never a big enough word.......
P.S. Still panicing about that #$%^&* grass.... and the horse and the deer and the DOGS !!!!!!!!!!!!!
