China Boots

China Boots

For Our China Boots  
Sept 30, 2017 
 
For each sunset there’s a sunrise,
In a land we cannot see.
There’s a place of love and endless dawn,
That’s called... Eternity.
In this land there are no shadows,
And no deepening shades of night,
And no candles ever needed,
For God provides the Light.
No pain or sorrow enters there,
No teardrops ever fall,
And no such thing as parting,
Within its Golden Halls.
Cares and worries are forgotten,
In this land where trails cease,
And the heart knows only gladness,
And the bliss of perfect peace.
In time there’ll be a reunion,
Sweeter far than words can say,
With those who’ve gone and await us,
In this land of Endless Day.  
So Much Luv

In loving Memory of our Toby (Pooper Doodle)
Our friend, the best gift that was brought into our lives, loved us unconditionally. 
Greeted us at the door every day with your run around the coffee table like a race horse showing how much you missed us.
You loved your car rides in the sunshine, sunroof open and the windows down.  We miss our co-pilot.
With time we all grow older,  we think of you with a smile that you bring to our faces even though you are gone.  I know we will meet again.

Look out doggy heaven…Molly has arrived!! 

We said good-bye to our Molly this weekend. Anyone who knew Molly will understand what I mean when I say it was with mixed emotions, but much harder than we imagined it would be! Molly has challenged our patience many, many times in her 14 years and to say she caused much frustration on many occasions would be an understatement…but despite her size she filled the house, and anywhere she was, with her personality, her antics and her enthusiasm! There aren’t too many out there that exuded her joy of life and joy of meeting people the way she did, and had the smarts to pull it off…but it was always on Molly’s terms, obedience wasn’t a big word in her vocabulary. In retrospect I realize that Molly had many life lessons to teach us… such as greet everyone, whether you know them or not, with utter excitement, no matter how many times someone tells you to stop, bounce off the walls if that’s what you feel like doing…if you want something, keep asking for it till you get it, or keep digging till you find it…if it’s edible (in your opinion) and within your reach, eat it, shoe polish, lip gloss, underwear, someone else’s chocolate cake….if you’re not hurting anyone or anything, and especially if no one’s home, your place is wherever you choose it to be, the view was better from the top of the table…if you are excited about doing something, show it!...be the best cuddler ever, and you will be forgiven for almost anything…give lots of gentle kisses that say I’m not mad at you…why should you be mad at me, life is meant to be fun, live it! And one of the greatest gifts Molly gave us was to get us up every morning and out the door for a walk…rain or shine or snow…+30 degrees or -30 degrees, doesn’t matter, it is the perfect way to start the day!

As big as your heart was for life Molly girl…you wore it out….

Bunni

Bunni

i still remember the day bunni (originally ronnie row) became a part of our family – she was 6 years old, sassy, and full of life. after about a month, we all developed an unbreakable bond with her; she loved to play outside, go for car rides, and go for walks. as a dog instinct, she wanted to protect her family but unfortunately picked on animals much larger than her, including deer. she had been trampled many times, and even lost an eye in one of the disputes – but that never stopped her from enjoying life. fast forward to 2014, we could all see that her hips were beginning to bother her and she was starting to lose her hearing. when she had her 14th birthday, we could all see that she was struggling. she was my baby; the thought of putting her down was very difficult. january 29th, 2016 was bunni’s appointment to be put to sleep – i spent every last moment with her (i even gave her some red velvet cake). my mom contacted our family friend karin, from halo pet aftercare & pet cremation, who met us at the armstrong veterinary clinic. bev from the the armstrong vet clinic was absolutely amazing in handling our situation. karin overall made this experience a lot less painful than i had anticipated. i was reassured knowing that bunni would be cared for and surrounded with love through every step of her afterlife. thank you ever so much karin – i will never be able to fully express my gratitude and appreciation for such a wonderful and heartfelt experience. rip bunni } 2001-2016


Mumsie

Mumsie

Mumsie sadly passed away on November 29, 2015, but not before living an incredibly full and rich life. She was one of three cats cats to be dropped off and abandoned at the O'Keefe Ranch over 10 years ago. Two of them were pregnant at the time and one of them was Mumsie. The live-in ranch manager at the time, Ken Mather, and his family took Mumsie in and cared for her and her newly adopted pregnant sister Bonita as they both gave birth to many kittens. She was called "Mumsie" because she would even nurse Bonita's kittens as well as her own. On Mother's day that year at the Ranch, the kittens were offered to any visitors who wanted to give them a good home. They were all adopted by the end of the day. Mumsie then lived happily with the Mathers as they went on with their lives. She came into my life because I began dating the younger Mather son in 2008. He and I decided to bring Mumsie into our erratic, young, student-lives soon after and moved her into our apartment. She loved warm laps, loved all human beings, and loved the outdoors. Our very good friends and their young daughter Harli also cared for Mumsie in the last few years of her life as my partner and I temporarily moved across the country; they affectionately called her "Chumsie." In the last few months of her life she lived with me and my family, who, aside from me, do not particularly like animals or pets. Despite being initially displeased with me bringing Mumsie into our family's home, she won their hearts almost immediately. My grumpy brother, who is allergic to cats, would let her sit on his lap every night, and my even grumpier father would clean her fur with a damp cloth. It was a very sad day for everybody who had experienced Mumsie's love and company the day she passed away. Now my family is unwilling to welcome a new cat because Mumsie had been so special and it was very hard to lose her. The Japanese traditionally cremate their loved ones so my mother was adamant about cremation. Thanks to the support and compassion of Armstrong's Halo Pet Cremation, I was not only able to grant my mother's wishes in a timely manner but able to spread Mumsie's ashes in our yard, a place she had spent many warm afternoons exploring and enjoying in the last months of her life. She was a very special cat and I am very lucky to have had her in my life.
