Hi to all my pup pals. I am still getting used to being here at the Bridge but I've got to say it is a most amazing place. I am with all my Angel pals and my original pack. We get to watch over everything and still get to take care of Mom and Ramsey but in a different kind of way now. After I left for the Bridge Mom and Ramsey were very sad. Mom thought the house was just too darn quiet and my sister Ramsey was very depressed. She didn't wag her stubby as much, didn't come running to the door whenever Mom returned from work or an errand, was just generally not her old happy go-lucky self. Mom was very worried about her and started to think she needed to begin the search for a pup to welcome into our hearts and home. She was still in the process of thinking this over when one morning a friend of hers on the facebook thing posted a picture and a link to a pup that was looking for her forever home. Well Mom kept going back all morning looking at her picture.... finally she made the call to the rescue group to ask about Katie. They told her there were a couple of people interested in her but for Mom to go to their website and fill out the application anyway and to be sure to put on it that she was interested in Katie. Well she did but refused to get her hopes up after all they had said others were in line ahead of her.... Well later that day she got a call from them! They said that there was a couple going to meet Katie that coming weekend and if they decided not to take her home well them Mom could set up an appointment to meet her. Well fingers and paws were crossed and we couldn't wait for Monday morning to find out if Katie was still available. Well you know us Angels we made sure that Katie was very rowdy when she met these folks and of course they decided against it. Mom was told how high energy Katie was and that she played really hard so be sure that Ramsey would be OK with that. Obviously they had never met my sister Ramsey.... she is all about rough and tumble play. Mom thought that this could be a match made in heaven. Well the arrangements were made and Mom went to meet and pick up Katie. Of course for Mom it was love at first sight. The first thing Katie did was jump up on Mom, wrap her legs around her waist and gave her a big ole dog hug! Well you know Mom that did it! Her broken heart opened up and Katie dashed right inside. She loaded her in the jeep and drove her home where Ramsey was waiting for them. When Mom walked in the house with Katie Ramsey took one look and that big ole boxer grin of hers was right back on her face. She was so happy to meet Katie. They sniffed, played, and immediately became pals. I of course knew all along that this was going to be the best thing for them both. The hole I had left in their lives needed to be filled some. Of course they both still miss me and will love me forever but another pup in need found her forever home and Ramsey is happy to have a playmate again. Trust us Angels to know exactly what to do for our families. It was no coincidence that her friend posted that picture that day right when Mom needed to see it and Katie needed her to see it too. I will always be there watching out for them and making sure they are OK.
