QUOTE OF THE DAY:
"No matter how little money and how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich." -- Louis Sabin
Hi dear friends,
As all of you know by now, Addie and Lucie's big sister ZOE left for the bridge in January after having lived a happy, wonderful and long life of almost 15 years, the same age that Mommy's doggie, Samantha, went to the bridge. The Mommy feel in love with Zoe when she saw her on Addie's blog because she looked just like Nikki, one of her fosters. Zoe loved balls with bells. Nikkie loved balls. Zoe and her Mommy, Staci, would sit for hours pushing a ball back and forth to each other. Nikkie loved to chase balls and bring them back to the Mommy to throw again and again for hours. Staci and her husband got Zoe in Germany when she was just a pup and the Mommy got Samantha when she was 8 weeks old. Both Samantha & Zoe are at the bridge now the Mommy misses both of them even though we never got to meet Zoe in person.
When the Mommy heard about Zoe having left for the bridge, she prayed that her Samantha had found Zoe and they would be become best buddies. Last night the Mommy dreamt of Samantha, Zoe, K8 and a little chocolate dog, of course it had to be my Jody. The little imp was running around acting silly and was making the 3 girls laugh. Then a little fluffy kitty cat appeared & it was Poo Poo. Jody and Poo Poo started rolling around in the grass together. It was so real that the Mommy cried because she wanted to be running around acting silly, playing with everybody and loving on Samantha. Then she woke up....but was so glad to think how happy they were. OK, OK .... so can't she help it. She believes that some dreams come true and knows that dream has to be true.
So anyway, before she starts crying, let me finish what I came to show you.....she's such a crybaby!! The Mommy asked Staci if we could have a picture of Zoe and one of her toys, so we could put it with Samantha's shrine and she could talk to both girls when shes in the computer room. Staci said YES she would do that for the Mommy. Staci also said she would like to make a donation to DROH of some of Zoe's favorite things to put smiles on a few dachie faces. OMD!! Did she ever. Here is a picture of some of the stuff including a doggie bed.....it's there in the back with tons of stuff in it. We can see lots of smiling dachie faces already, not to mention all the folks with DROH. Words cannot express the gratitude we feel towards Staci and her family for thinking of DROH during this very hard time in their lives.
Here is the picture the Mommy choose to put in this doggie frame the Mommy had. Isn't Zoe pretty.
I have one last thing to say from both me and the Mommy. God Bless you Staci!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and all the smiling dachies in our care.
