Y'all know this sucks big time, right?

I have only just taken control of this blog.
This is my second post.
And here I am saying goodbye to another pal.

The lovely golden gentleman above is Homer.
He was one of the pack at the Bumpass Hounds,
but yesterday his mom and dad helped
him make the journey to the bridge.

He was ready to go, and with the help of
his humans and the staff at his Vet's
office, he made the journey peacefully
and surrounded by love. If you have
a moment, leave them a note, OK?

He joins Miss Maggie in the crop of "new kids"
and we will surely miss both of them.

Our love and terrier nose bops to their

Teka Toy (I can't make the link work. If you
want to leave a note for the Bumpass Bunch,
go to www.bumpasshounds.blogspot.com)

(I guess I understand why Muzzer is so
bummed when this happens. Next time
I hope to have better news.)

We didn't know Homer very well, but we are sorry for his loss. We wish this long list of furries crossing could stop. It just seems to happen more and more frequently. Too sad.

Sad news! We'll go visit the Bumpass hounds now to give them our love. What a sweet face Homer had.

Wirey woofs,

Thank y'all for the kind words about our brother Homer. He set a standard that the rest of us could only hope of ever achieving (as Mom and Dad always remind us). We can't think of any angel blog buddy dogs at the bridge that weren't beloved by their families and friends. We're sure that they are now unburdened souls romping through the glades and meadows.

Sadly so many friends have left for the rainbow bridge lately. heyho

Gussie darling...how are you???

Yes, Mumsie looked at those pictures and perused some of our "doings" from four years ago...she says now she knows why she's completely daft and it's all our fault. So Scruffy hung out on the kitchen table...well, we all know the dog doesn't have a brain....

Well, I didn't bite him today...well, not much...the Lacie does make Birthday exceptions....
