in honor of lionel, daisy, and in memory of sadie

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.

I have 2 dogs, and they are indeed a part of my family. Jadette is feeding one of the 'Nilla Wafers as we speak, lol.

You all remain in my prayers.

This put a smile on my face, I really want a dog, but I'm not great with houseplants, so....

Household pets are easier to care for than plants, dearie. They REALLY let you know if they need something! It's going to be a while before we have room for a pup, so I have Pandora the Wonderkitty in the meantime.
