Raw Food Diet, Day 230- A Tribute

***
Big Pupi waxes poetic:

As the summer begins to fade and we take stock of all that has happened over the past few months, we have come to realize that there have been many loved ones lost by our blogging friends and their families. Now I could get all mushy here but I'm not going to. Instead, I would like to post a photo tribute to the dogs that have touched our lives even for a short while. There are happy sendoffs, there are tearful goodbyes, but in each of their stories there is love. Lots of it. And there is great peace in knowing that us animals never for a moment take your kindness for granted. So here's to you...

Wile E.

February 6, 2007 - June 2007

We miss you.

Wile E. was such a smart puppy that at 9 weeks old he could unlatch his crate from the inside and set himself free!

Wile E. was nicknamed the 'Rug Gator' because he loved to nibble on ankles.

Romy

Fostered Februay 2007 - only 30 days before she found her forever home!

Romy was my first love. (It might have had something to do with the fact that she wasn't spayed and was in heat when she first arrived.) I used to do all kinds of dances and spins to try and get her attention!

We encourage everyone to post a photo tribute to the ones we love that are no longer with us, and write a happy or funny memory. They can be pets that were taken to the Rainbow Bridge or dogs like Romy that paid a short visit before moving on to her permanent home. It's nice to see their faces sometimes... even if it's only a photograph... and it's wonderful to remember something that makes you smile.

Love the ones you're with,
Big Pupi

That was a beautiful tribute and we ended up savoring a few minutes of peace while we admired the spunky puppy. Wile E. Romy looks like she just pulls the love out of you and I can understand why she took a little piece of your heart with you.

We're going to work on a tribute to my predecessor, Logo. Ms. Alpha was positively destroyed when he went to the Bridge. But he was such a great dog that she realized she could never live without one of us and that's how the Alphas got ME!

You're a sagacious dude, Pupi.

A wonderful post. That little blonde cocker puppy reminded Mommy of the two blonde cockers that she grew up with -- Sam and Robbie. Two great fellas she'll be thrilled to see when her time is up!

Lots of love,

Petey
