There's been another pet food recall for Nutro. Here's more information:
Back to Petey....
Yesterday, I found sad news across the blogs. The lovely Rufus and big-hearted Baby Love had both crossed the bridge. Emil was still missing and presumed to have moved along as well. I can imagine how hard it is for our people when we leave them. There's a story about a little boy explaining to his parents why pets don't live as long as people. To paraphrase, he says that our pets come here and they are already good and kind and ready to love us. For people, it takes longer to learn these things, that's why they live longer-- so they can learn what we already know.
Mommy's minister once said that if you love an animal, you give it a soul. And it will live forever. Here's a photo of me and my cat Maui, the morning that Maui crossed the bridge. She was very sweet and loved everybody. I learned a lot from her.
Mommy's Daddy died six year ago from cancer. A few months before he died, he had to put Keddy, the wire fox terrier, to sleep. A couple of days before my Grandpa died, he was talking to lots of people in his hospital room that we couldn't see. At one point, he said "Keddy, get down! You know you're not allowed up there." Mommy asked him if he could see Keddy. He said "Yes, there are a lot of dogs in here, but Keddy's right over there." This gave my Mommy tremendous comfort that we are all indeed reunited again.
I hope this little post lights a little candle of hope in your hearts today.
With much love for my two and four-legged friends,
