i was sent this in an email today.
i'll post it in honor of lionel and daisy who made the long trip to be with the pobble (if you scroll down her blog to her post on 1/18 you'll see their picture). she loves her new pups.
and in memory of sadie who was loved by mr and mrs brutally honest and who i'm certain must have loved them the way only a dog can love.
and because my very own 'ohana (which means family in hawaiian) is right now torturing the cat.
