A Simple Message From Your Pet
by Ken D. Conover
To have loved and then said farewell is better than to have never loved at all.
For all of the times that you stooped and touched my head, fed me my favorite treat and
returned the love that I so unconditionally gave to you. For the care that you gave to me
so unselfishly. For all of these things I am grateful and thankful. I ask that you grieve
not for the loss but rejoice in the fact that we lived, loved and touched each other's lives.
My life was fuller because you were there, not as owner, but as my friend. Today, I am
as I was in my youth. The grass is always green, butterflies flit among fthe flowers and
the sun shines gently down upon all of God's creatures. I can run, jump and play
and do all of the things that I did in my youth. There is no sickness, no aching joints
and no regrets and no aging. We await the arrival of our lifelong companions and know
that togetherness is forever. You live in our hearts as we do in yours. Companions such
as you are very rare and unique. Don't hold the love that you have within yourself.
Give it to another like me and then I will live forever. For love never really dies,
and you are loved and missed as surely as we are.
Your pet in heaven.

I got an urgent email from my pals Angel Mica the Wonderpup and Mirra aka The Purple Girls of Oregon. It seems as though there is a pretty house plant being sold in stores all across the country which is extemely toxic, if ingested, to both furs and furless. TPGOO have asked their furiends to help bark out and I, in return, am asking all my pals to do the same. The following is inFURmation I found in Plus Forums Informational thread SAGO PALM IS A POISONous PLANT!.....
PLEASE Cross post:
Greetings from the Burnt Hills Veterinary Hospital.
Our goal is to make our clients the most educated pet owners in the community.
Recently the home improvement stores have stocked their shelves with a plant called "Sago Palm". This is a decorative houseplant that you may be tempted to purchase.
If your pets ingest ANY part of this plant it will cause liver failure. Even with aggressive veterinary treatment 70% + of these pets will die. We implore you to keep your household free of this plant. We are devastated when we are unable to help your pets.
Go to our website and get a look at this plant.
If that isn't enough to convince you to help spread the woof, check out another Plus thread, started by pretty, little Tallulah Belle who nearly died after consuming some of a Sago Palm! Thank God and Dog, she survived, but many haven't.... and sadly, won't. :(
In addition to the deadly SAGO PALM, my pawsome pal Mica, gone to The Bridge too soon due to IMHA (Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia) , has been on a mission to help find a cure fur the deadly disease.
I am BOL to everywoof to visit Mica's Dogster page, READ HER BIO, and her Diary, and become aware of IMHA and IMTP (Immune-Mediated Thrombocytopenia). I hope everywoof can make even a small efFURt to support Mica's cause to help find a cure. Pawlease, everywoof, you could be the next fur who is affected by these deadly diseases. I hope you care and can try to help. I did, and it's time fur me to help a little bit more! I start by BOL in this Diary entry and continue by digging Mom's checkbook out fur her and asking her to use it. Every woof and every dollar gets us one step closer to a cure!
Thanks fur taking the time to hear me bol and fur taking the time - and making the space- to bol yourselves.
All paws united fur Power of the Paw! It can work miracles!
Fluffy hugs & Pommie kisses, Uncle Coco ♥

There I was just running around sniffing stuff and looking fur bugs and spiders and other fun things to play with, when I heard her. I stopped running and I listened hard - to make sure I wasn't mistaken. Then, I heard her again! I looked over across the meadow, past the flowers and clover patch. There she was!!! I ran as fast as my paws would run, barking as loudly as I could bark, to all of my fur angel furiends, "She's here! She came! My humom has come to be with me!"
I leapt into Mom's arm and kissed her face! I couldn't stop wiggling! Mommy was laughing and kissing me back! She hugged me tight - as much because she was happy to see me as to keep from dropping me while I wiggled so hard.
It was so sad when we had to say goodbye, when I left my family to come to The Bridge. Even though I was once again with alot of my furiends that went to The Bridge before me, I still missed my family... especially Mom.
Now I am the happiest fur angel ever!!! I'll never be separated from my humom again! We're together furevermore!
