"I think Dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive."

--- Gilder Radner

Dear friends,

Several weeks ago my Mommy decided she wanted to do a post about all us doggies doing what we do best....sleeping, napping, dreaming, cuddling, snuggling and just being together with other doggies and our humans. Mommy believes that doggies are angels in disguise sent down from heaven to make life bearable for humans. Then they go back to heaven until their humans come for them and everybody is happy again. That's why she picked the quote of the day she picked for this post. Mommy says all of us are so angelic when we sleep. So Mommy set out to do a post of some of cutest doggies in the DWB community. And then this week we lost one of the most beautiful of them all......Dakota. Mommy believes the eyes are the gateways to the soul. Dakota had eyes that you could drown in and spoke so much to us all with those eyes. Never to see those eyes again is a heartbreak in it's self. Now she is gone and will never be forgotten. We are all too familiar with the Rainbow Bridge.

At the end of the rainbow there is a gateway that leads to the bridge and beyond that a paradise like none the humans have ever seen. It is just for us and the lost human babies that have been invited in to come inside to play with us....it's heaven for us and babies too. What would paradise be without a boy and his dog.



Mommy is going ahead with our post even though she has been crying all morning since she read the news that Huskee's little human sister, Chloe, didn't make it. We are sure she is looking down from the bridge right now with her brother, Lucas, praying that their Mommy & Daddy will have th strength to look ahead and never give up. Someday it will happen when the time is right.

So here are some of my friends, some pictures that Mommy selected off blogs and some that they picked themselves. Some just cry to have something said and so don't anybody be offended by what Mommy might say.

"Angels in disguise."





Paris Rain "oops I think I just dislocated something."

Mackie "Ah sweet Ruby."


Addie, Lucie and Hailey "Come on Mona there's room for one more dachsie"


Skye who said cats and dogs can't get along?

Here is the only post you get to see twice. Mango the Relentless Huge

Mastiff!! Why so ask? Because he is so big and gentle and he puts up with Pee Wee, aka Dexter.


Mango Hector Wheelie

See how he protected Hector after his squirrel adventure. "My hero!!"

Dexter "have you have no shame?"



Roxie "Mommy's other girl."

Sammy "Hands off girls, he's all mine."


Jake "the only time Mommy's has seen him asleep."


OK, so Mommy lied. You get to see Roxie again. Mommy loves this picture of her two girls together (Aunt Mary might debate whether Roxie is one of Mommy's girls) that =we aren't fighting over her. Roxie can give Mommy all the fixes she wants but guess who gets to sleep with Mommy....ME!!!

Me and Roxie


Ruby and Penny


Maggie and Mitch "Dreaming of apples and ice cream."


Twix "Just not enough room for 4 legs and a tail on this chair"


Matilda "We love you Siskle!!! Mona that's Matilda not Siskle.


Miss Kylie


Tanner "tickle, tickle...wake up Doofuss!!

Joe Stains


Lorenza -- message from my brother Toby "I still love you sweet Lorenza."


Key West Collies

Kyra "the Walkin Wednesday" Queen "Mommy never misses walkin Wednesday cuase her Mom's voice is so smoothing."


Huskee "You gotta be strong for Mommy & Daddy."

Franny "Samantha used to sleep sitting up like you too"


Paco's babies

Paco "boy-o-boy, it's hart being up all night with a bunch of babies!!"

Milo "the proud uncle."


Clover and Chewy "hey, do I look like a foot cushion or what."


Chloe "it's so nice to see a Daddy and his little girl."


Mommy loves this picture. This is the only yawning pic she got.


Bolo "don't tell Sammy bit I think I'm in love with another doggie."


Mango "One of my bestest friends."

Ximui (one of Mango's brothers)

Abby "Isn't she pretty. Why would anybody call her Crabby Abby/"


Simbe "Long live the King!!"

Jazzie "Monkey see monkey do"

Happy "Just seeing that smile makes the Mommy happy."

Princess Snowball "Ok, I see you down there!! I was only resting my eyes."





Rocky "Samantha's dear friend at the bridge, Lacylulu is Rocky's angel sister that helps Mommy take care of all the new arrivals."

It is now 5:00 PM CST and Mommy has been working on this post all day long. She said it has been very theraputic. Seeing all of your sleepy faces as taken some of the pain of the last few days away. We are going to say good night but before we go close Angel Samantha has a message from the bridge for Huskee's Mommy from Baby Chloe & Lucas.

Please don't blame yourself Mommy. It will be alright. I got to the bridge and the first person I met was Baby Lucas. We don't want you and Daddy to cry. We are safe and in good hands. Angel Samantha and that silly dachsie boy, Jody, was there to meet me with Lucas. We have lots of friends up here and GOD says we can stay here as long as we want. We love you dearly Mommy, Daddy, Hershey and Huskee. Don't worry about us. We will always be in your hearts and that what counts. I will be looking down from heaven, so let me see a smile.

Thanks to all my models.

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all....Mona & Mommy

Wonderful post!

You have the best pix of sleep pups in the world!

That was a very nice poem for Huskee and Hershey's mom and dad. It is so sad what they are going through.

Wonderful tribute to all of these wonderful pups!

Twix said...

Oh Mona, that is the bestest post! Don't ask me why I like to sleep in that chair but I sure do. Thank you for giving us something to smile about during these sad times. We will continue to keep the families who have lost loved ones in our prayers along with Laska.
Love and hugs,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mona and Mommy!
You made a beautiful post!
Sometimes we don't understand why God does what he does but sure he has good reasons.
All those sleepy pictures made me want to go to sleep now!
Have a good night
Kisses and hugs

The OP Pack said...

This is just so beautiful - Mom is crying all over again. Mona, you have one awesome Mom there to spend all this time doing such a fantastic post. Sleeping pups really are a very peaceful and consoling sight to see. You sure showed a lot of beautiful angels-in-the-making. So yes, as Mango said, it has been a very sad time for pups and humans, but we all have so much to be thankful and happy about. Thank you so much for doing this.

Woos, Kathie and the OP Pack

Checkers said...

That was fun - THANKS!

Dannan and The Girl said...

Oh Mona and the Mommy, The Girl thinks the Mommy's idea of doggies being angels is absolutely true. This post is so wonderful, and so much hard work and love went into it! We are glad you took a picture from our bloggy - The Girl is just not doing her job lately, and we're really happy to have been included. There has been so much sadness around the DWB world lately (and we don't even know most of it, because that bad Girlie doesn't let me read all the bloggies like I want to), and posts like this one bring so much solace to everyone. Thank you, Mona and the Mommy!



A pawsome post. It just makes us so tired to see so many sleeping dogs. Yawn....

Essex and Deacon zzzzzzzzzz

chicamom85 said...

That was so beautiful and thank you for all that work. My Mom and I are so sorry that you are sad. Mom is saying a prayer for you and your friends. Soon you will be visiting Sammie and I hope that makes you feel better.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

p.s. please don't hurt any bunny rabbits

Franny said...

Thank you for including me in your sleepy post! I think we all agree that us doggies are angels!


Deefor said...

That made me cry and smile at the same time. Thank you.


Twinkle a.k.a Chicken Little said...

Mona, thanks for this is a wonderful post. We love it so much!!!

Joe Stains said...

What a great post and we loved your comments about the photos. You are very clever AND cute!! This made us smile and we sure need that.

ocmist said...

Dott is so mad at me for not getting over here when Mango first suggested it so she could get in on this one! Still, I'm glad I came to at least see the results of all your hard work. This was one of the most touching and beautiful blogs I've seen. Our poochie friends are so very precious and they DO ease the way when pain happens in life.

Thank you so much for being such a good friend to those who needed this at this time! Linda (BG & OC's Mom and Dott's Grammy)
