Raw Food Diet, Day 138- My Uncle is Hunting Birds in Heaven

From Big Pupi:

My uncle, Sir Wrigley of Potowomut, left to go hunt some birds in heaven yesterday. Wrigley was 14 years old and my human's family dog growing up. He was the oldest member of the Forgotten Fans. I never got to meet Wrigley because he lived in Rhode Island and I've never been on a plane, but my dad used to regale me with stories about this mythical beast. Wrigley was a backyard boy and his job was to protect the property from all critters hoping to come in. He's wrestled snakes, skunks, and squirrels. He even once took care of a blue jay that had tried to feast on his kibble. Most Red Sox fans hate Yankees, but Wrigley hated Blue Jays and Orioles. Wrigley was also a big fan of meat and cheese, just like me and Stanislaw. Wrigley actually lived long enough to see the Red Sox win two championships, in 2004 and 2007. He celebrated last year by wearing goggles like the Sox. This great hunter and feaster will surely be missed.

That's awfully sad news, Stan. Glad you believe in Dog Heaven....I know my predecessor, Logo, helped Wrigley over the bridge and showed him where the bird field is.

Oh guys,
I am so sorry about your handsome Uncle's passing. He sounds like a great dog!

Mom had a half cocker/half hound before me named Sumo. She said he was such a great guy. I think I would have really liked my uncle Mo!

He was such a handsome stud & natural a good watch dog! It's sooo sad that he went to sleep peacefully yesterday. I hope he's having a sooperb time up there now!

I'm so sorry to hear about Wrigley's passing to the Bridge. My cousin Sadie is up there, and in her younger years she hunted bunnies, so I'm sure they're up there now having a blast and watching all of us.

Sorry to hear about your family's loss. Wrigley sure sounds like one awesome pup. I'm sure in heaven there are lots of Blue Jays and Orioles for him to hunt and meat and cheese to feast on. My little heart goes out to your family.

much love,
