A Parting Prayer Dear Lord, please open your gates And call St. Francis To come escort this beloved companion Across the Rainbow Bridge. Assign her to a place of honor, For she has been a faithful servant And has always done her best to please me. Bless the hands that send her to you, For they are doing so in love and compassion, Freeing her from pain and suffering. Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss. Help me remember the details of her life With the love she has shown me. And grant me the courage to honor her By sharing those memories with others. Let her remember me as well And let her know that I will always love her. And when it's my time to pass over into your paradise, Please allow her to accompany those Who will bring me home. Thank you, Lord, For the gift of her companionship And for the time we've had together. And thank you, Lord, For granting me the strength To give her to you now. Amen.

How We Met?

A former neighbor who volunteered at our local shelter told me about her. She was to be euthanized the next day because no one wanted her. so I went that evening and brought her home. She only weighed 12 lbs., had heartworms and had been abused. She has had a lot of emotional problems and still has trust issues, but she has a good life now.

Love your pictures. It is a long weedend for us, because of the Queen's Birthday. The long weekend is just in time for us to plant our gardens/flowers. Mom posted a new picture - when Mom is in the garden she used to like to sit on an old bathroom mat but I would lay claim to it as soon as Mom was not looking, then I would not move. Well Mom took the mat out of the shed and put it on the chair (thinking that I would not claim the mat) but I just jumped onto the chair. Mom was surprised that I did that but its my mat not hers.

Hi Abby

I have taken over for Annye and am your new friend. Mama says she must have been my mom cause I am just like her... That is an honour for me. The weather here is super nice and we have been outside alot. The flowers are starting to bloom. My little friends are making a clubhouse in the bushes behind our house and I am President...I don't know what that means but it sounds really important. Cousin Mac is staying with us for a while. He is a dutch shepard and is big and very goofy. He is scared of me. He runs away when i growl at him... sure is funny. How is your pak? And how are you feeling? I hope you are having nice weather too. Teddi

Happy Mothers' Day!

I hope you're all doing a bit better and that you had a wonderful nice spring day and enjoyed a lovely Mothers' Day. It's beautiful here and I'm so very happy that the cementing of the new patio is all done. That was tiring! Mama worked two nights in a row. But it was worth it. Hard to blog and cement at the same time though. I helped a lot. We have this huge ground compactor. It's about twice the size of a lawnmower and twice as loud. It didn't bother me one bit. I would stand right next to it as it was pounding the ground. I also helped dig a bit. I also wanted to help smooth out the cement with my paws but mama yelled at me. I managed to sneak onto the new patio the next morning though when mama wasn't looking. Unfortunately it was already hard and I left no footprints. So, what was the point? We also went on a really fun hike in the mountains last week. We walked for about 6 hours and we found snow up there! I love snow. Especially when it's warm! Mama is kind of limping around now though after hiking and then making the cement form, and then pouring the cement. She makes such a big fuss about things! I'm not tired in the least! I wanted to thank you again for stopping by to visit Pippin whenever you can and especially on his birthday. He is doing great but mama needs to fix a flat tyre on the cart. Got to order some patches! In the meantime we've taken him out on a few walks. Not many this week though since we've been so busy. I'm so glad you liked his Birthday Cake video. Wow, he likes cake more than I do! I've never seen a horse lick a plate clean. Thanks for the comment. Last Sunday was the biggest event of the year for this county. It was the annual rodeo! Everyone from miles around comes for this big day and there's a parade and all kinds of classes. Eddie won First Place in the parade! I'm so proud of the big handsome boy. He looked so handsome all decked out. I'll upload photos when I can. Leaving a Happy Mothers' Day vote! And many many thanks for all your help last month with Pixie Dust. With your help she won! And her family is so thrilled. P.S. If you feel so inclined, mama has a fantasy horse running for hotm right now. His name is Shadowfax and his number is 49806.

Hi Abby!

We are wanted to visit you and Tess when we came by to visit Beau and congratulate him! We hope that you are feeling okay and not having any more seizures. Pongo is now deaf and almost blind, but he is doing well otherwise, and we girls are doing great! Arial at 6 1/2 months old is already bigger than Hope is at 1 1/2, but Hope will always be tiny. We are having pretty weather here in VA, with the temperatures running from the upper 60's to the upper 70's. We enjoy the sunshine, but we didn't like the rainy days we had earlier in the week. Have a nice evening, a terrific Friday, and an amazing weekend, and we are pawing you a vote! Love & Hugs, Your Pals, Pongo, Gaby, Hope, and Arial
