First let me start with the biggest of thank yous for my super pawsome friends who have been voting for me in the contest. Please know that if I win you will have helped this pooch get a whole 50 buckaroos for some of my medical stuff and that is a huge arrroooo!! I am not putting the link in this diary since it's in the one from yesterday.
Mom and I have been sad today, mom said she has a sad heart. Some of you might remember us telling you about this very wonderful lady that we met at the Spring Fling in the park last year that introduced mom and me to our new landlord. She liked us right off the bat and we liked her a lot, too. She ran the community we live in now and mom and I would stop in to see her from time to time to say hello and chat. The last time we popped in was not long before classes started since we have been so busy, but mom told me yesterday that we were going to see her next week and tell her how everything was going. Mom wanted to tell her she changed her majors to two different business ones and get some advice and ask her if we could do the internship there when it was time.
Well, when mom talked to the landlord this morning he told mom that he hated telling her this over the phone, but that our friend Bea just passed away. Mom couldn't believe it and started getting watery eyes. Our landlord told mom that she really liked us a lot and was very proud of her even though we hadn't known her long and didn't get to see her often. Did I tell you what she did when we took our Family Class of 2009 Christmas card to her with all our caps and gowns on?? She was posting it on the Bulletin Board there so anyone from our community that went there would see it, how pawsome was that! Her funeral should be this week, mom doesn't know how to handle it though. See, Bea really liked mom and I together but mom doesn't know if service dogs should go to funerals. No matter what, mom is going to have a very sad day that day.
Anyway, mom and I were talking after and she said that we really need to make sure that the people who are special in our lives know that they are always no matter how busy we get. Even if we don't get to talk as often as we would like. Sometimes you just don't have a next week to see someone. So to all of our wonderful friends here that we have gotten to know, and are so special to us, and who is always here for us, we truly appreciate your friendship always. We feel so fortunate to have found some of the greatest pooch and pooch parent friends here. Hugs to you all my friends, Binx and my mommie Susan.

This is my thoughts..
Go proudly.. take Binx.. let him wear his jacket too.
Stand tall and smile long and hard.
Celebrate this wonderful Lady's life. Dont let death create tears and steal LIFE.
She had great admiration for you Susan and Binx.. pay this back with light spirit and bright heart.
''Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass,
Of glory in the flower,
We will grieve not, but rather find
Strength in what remains behind. ''
((((hugs)))) I am so sorry..
You guys are special and by being the way you are, you are giving back to others, who will never forget.
I will never forget about you guys for sure..
Love, sonja and the crew
We're so sorry for the loss of your friend, Binx and Susan. It's wonderful that you were able to brighten Bea's life, as she brightened yours. We think you would both be be blessing her with your presence at her funeral.
Uh oh, you guys are going to make mom's eyes get watery again with all the nice notes you left. Hugs to you all!
She hasn't decided for sure about the funeral yet. They expect tons and tons of people most for it and she's always thinking of me being comfortable before much else. Will keep you posted, but there has been no word yet on when it will be.
Thank you fur being a friend !
Pookah & Family
