My Dear Friend Pip

 Dear friends it is with a very heavy heart mom and I
come in today to tell you my Sweetheart Pip
will be traveling to the Rainbow bridge today
at 11:30 am central time.
Last night we received an email telling us he
was very sick.  A portion of the email is below:

He has had a terrible few days - not eating, labored breathing, very weak to the point where his legs sometimes give out on him. I had hoped that he would bounce back as he has so many times, but I don't think he is going to this time ...
 Our vet believes his body is shutting down and he may have had a stroke. The breathing issues may be more to do with his trachea collapsing than his heart issues. I'm still processing everything ...they have given him some pain medication for the night and in the morning we will make the decision. He is sleeping quietly next to me as I type. Last night he was up all night panting and pacing - every few steps he would fall over.
Pip's mom asked that we prepare a post letting his friends know of his trip and to tell you all he loves you,
thanks you all for your prayers this past year
and most of all he thanks you all for
allowing him to complete his Bucket List
earlier this year.

Pip's Mom hopes to have a post up later this weekend.


Dear Pip and Family Blogville is a better place from knowing you!!
My heart hurts Pip but  I want to tell you it was an honor to have you say YES when I asked you to be my 
Valentine this Year.   
I will always remember you in your bow tie
with cheese on your chin hair.
With lots of love and Hugs
 Madi your best friend forever!!

I'M BLESSED

One of my favorite spots in my home is 
in, what used to be the first Diva's my human sis's
room.  It is on the front of the house and away from
all the commotion mom makes...yes it is true Mom can be 
L O U D 

Above the bed where I rest is a cross stitching called
AN IRISH BLESSING
It is a favorite of Mom's


In case you can't read it...Mom typed it for you.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields 
and until we meet again, 
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I think this is a very nice place to nap and mediate

It might be quiet up here but never fear
the smell of bacon, turkey and corn bread cooking
always find their way to my delicate nose.
Double  Blessing
I have the house to myself!!
 My peeps have left the building for the morning.
Today is the first full day of the NC State Fair.
They left early to attend before the crowds arrive
back in the afternoon.

MOM IS....

E A S Y

ALL I HAVE TO DO TO HAVE HER
EATING OUT OF MY PAWS...
IS SIT ON THE BACK OF THIS CHAIR
WHILE SHE READS...




SO EVERY FEW WEEKS  
I GIVE THE OLD GIRL A THRILL
I LIKE HER iPad...it doesn't have a flashy on it.
FYI:  Mom was playing Words With Friends 
and crocheting I love watching her fingers,
the tiles and the yarn...Most entertaining

COOTIES........

Last Saturday morning, at 10:30 am, when we left to 
run some errands. Madi was napping so 
I left the bed unmade ::GASP:: I only do that for Madi.

Returned at 12:30 to find her in the same position.
Head all tucked and snoring.
She was so cute I leaned over her, put my arms around
her to give her a hug.  She gave me a few huffs and puffs but all in 
all enjoyed it.  I had the flashy beast ready, because I knew what 
would happen.  She gave me this look......


THEN SHE HAD TO GET RID OF MY
COOTIES






 AT LAST SHE WAS FREE OF MOMMY COOTIES
TURNED AROUND AND CONTINUED TO NAP BUT 
KEPT ONE EYE ON ME.

EASY LIKE SUNDAY and Shine On

MY FRIENDS AND I WISH ALL AN
EASY SUNDAY....

WE THANK MISAKI'S MOM FOR TELLING HER ABOUT 
PIZAP.COM NOW I CAN HAVE FRIENDS IN MY PHOTOS


I WANT TO THANK MY GAL PAL ZOEY AT
ISLAND CATS FOR this SHINE ON AWARD.

Now I need to tell you 7 things about me

1.  I love sun puddles and I hope they always
SHINE ON in my house.
2. I love Cheerios when mom shares which isn't often
3. I snoopervise Dad's shaving and showering every day!
Often I have to remind him to wash behind his ears
4. I have an itty bitty patch of dark gray furs on my back paw.
It is under the white so you have to search for it
5. If my din-din is not in my Winnie the Pooh Plate
promptly at 4 pm, I give mom a piece of my mind 
6. Mom wanted to name me Clancy.  The vet who gave me my
wellness check up was Dr. Clancy.  
Thank goodness Dad had the good sense to say 
she is too delicate to be a Clancy. Boy do I have Dad fooled!
  MOL MOL
7. Mom here:  Madi(son) D. Diva Mayoress knows what she wants and we love her to pieces.  She makes us laugh each day.
Her Dad says she is a perpetual teenage girl!!
