Remember When…

Christmas Day 2007 - Sissy, me, Mugsy

I’ve said over and over that I’ve been truly blessed with exceptional dogs in my life, from Mopsy – the buff cocker my parents had when I was born – right on through the current fur-girls.   Add in my horses, fish, rabbits and cats, and I’ve said good-bye far too often to devoted pets who brightened my life.

Sue and I want to honor all of our gone but not forgotten pets later this month on our Dogs n More blog.  Please follow the link for more information, and/or send Sue or me a photo and information on your special memorials.

    We must grieve in order to enjoy the fullness of life with a pet. Thor is our third mastiff, and every day I’m happy that he’s still with us at his advanced age!

    I agree with Alison…the love we get makes it worthwhile. I’ll be sure to send you a Bonnie photo.

    I’ve had so many dogs, cats, gerbils, rabbits and heaven knows what else I couldn’t begin remember them all. The dog we had the longest was Tuffy, a Yorkie. He’s long gone but we all loved him so much. Will try to dig up a photo of him.

    I am so glad you and Sue are doing this wonderful tribute. However, I foresee a full week of bawling my eyes out! Thank you for including us. Wonderful!

    Sissy was such a cute little pup. I think we’re getting a good response so far and we won’t make it sad. There should be lots of funny stories, too.
