“The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.”

-Samuel Butler

Hi my Dearest friends,

 I have decided that there has just been so much sadness around recently, that we need a good laugh so here goes.

Mexican Lion - How clever is this???!!!

He was sick tired of thugs breaking into his garage shop to steal tools, etc. So he came up with this idea. He put the word out that he had a new Mexican Lion that would attack anyone that would break in or climb his fence. Would-be thieves saw the "Lion" from a distance and fled the scene.
I'm a lion...hear me roar!!
The dog's probably trying to figure out why his head's so hot and his butt's so cold?

Did you laugh?

"oh well we tried."

*************** some serious stuff.

Mommy wants to thank everybody for caring so much about me, Tiger and Shelby. The last 4 days have been so stressful for Mommy and Sandra, Tiger's Mom. Mommy loves Tiger like he was her own, it's because he looks just like my brother, Siskle, and being around him is like being with my brother again. Maybe that's why I love him so much too. 26 years ago, on August 13, 1984, my Mommy lost her Daddy to a massive heart attack. She was with him at the hospital, nobody else got there in time and she takes it very hard every year and relives the last hours of his life, when she was alone and scared. Mommy always takes that day off. This year it was Friday 13th, bad luck, if you believe in all that kinda stuff. Mommy went to the eye doctor Friday morning and had just gotten in the door when Sandra called with the horrible news about Tiger. There was no time, this year to dwell on her Daddy's passing, Sandra & my Tiger needed help. Mommy hates that this had to happen to my love but for a change she didn't have time to grieve. Maybe it was fate, only God knows for sure. The comments of encouragement, love and the many prayers meant so much to Mommy and Sandra. Yesterday Mommy was so worried, that my oncologist would have bad news. Mommy should have listened to me and Frankie Furter and Maggie Mae and Puddles and all of my friends that things would be OK. Mommies just like to worry but they should listen to us doggies. 

"This little card is for all of you."

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all......Mona
& God bless and hold you next to his heart......Mommy, Sarah

Thanks for the laugh, Mona and Mommy too. It was a good one. Our Mom lost her Dad to a massive heart attack too, and sadly he died on the street very early in the morning on his way to work after getting off the bus. He was all alone and that has always bothered our Mom.

We have our paws crossed for Shelby and Tiger and hope all turns out well. We are very happy for your good news.

The "lion" pic was funny! We are sending happy thoughts, wags, and purrs your way!

I got an email with a picture of that dog and laughed when I saw it. It was just as funny the second time around!

I hate that Tiger had to get attacked but I'm glad it happened on the anniversary of your mom's father's death so that she didn't have time to grieve.

Prayers for everyone.

Those white flowers look like me!

Amy & the house of cats said...

Ok, first those are cool flowers!

And next, well, we are just so glad that you, Tiger and Shelby are all ok! And your poor mom - our mom's dad passed away too - she was not there but we know how hard it is for her on the aniversary of that day - we know it had to be hard for your mom, but maybe it was good she had something to distract her a bit. We are sending her purrs and hugs!
