Oh Sally,

I made a post, I know I did... shoot! I am so glad Nellie is doing ok, that was a great video sp_hearticon2 I am so very sorry that you lost your buddy Bob. It sounds like he was meant to be with you though, you gave him the best life to make him happy.  Most others would not have been able to do that. You have a beautiful way of letting everypawdy just be themselves, and you love unconditionally. A lot of people could learn a lesson from that.

I have wondered a few times how Nellie would be with all of this, and I am really happy that she and Myrtle are bonding. OMD Myrtle is like a ginormous teddy bear sp_hearticon2

Sending love and bunches of hugs your way sp_hearticon2

It is truly great to see Myrtle playing with Nellie.   She is getting a little back to herself now.  I am glad that Nellie is adjusting somewhat to Bob being gone and with Frankie and Myrtle. 

Love that everyone has honored Bob in a special way.  <3 <3 <3 sp_hearticon2sp_hearticon2

Sending love and hugs

Awwwwwwww. Three IS the magic number, it was beautiful watching the pups just hanging out together and "chatting." Life goes on and the dogs make the most of every day in honor of Bob. Thank you for sharing a beautiful moment with all of us. I'm glad you did because I was just about to start bawling when you shared that story of his burial. icon_cry

And Sally you ALWAYS have the right words to say, never ever doubt that. 

I love the gift from Jackie, that is just gorgeous. What love that shines throughout this community!

Oh Sally...   I haven't been here for a while.. but the first post I read is from you and how you have gone through another sweet pup running for the bridge..  And you know how I feel about the bridge...  That sweet water, that fresh green grass, and all those four legged friends to chill with and snuggle up close and share dreams.  Myrtle probably snagged Bob right when he arrived...  we all have our pawprint on our pups and they know each other up there.  I'm sorry you are and will be aching for a while... after all.. we always choose tears!!sp_hearticon2

Christine... with Franklin, Maggie & Diesel in her heart sp_hearticon2

Franklin, he was the Happiest Dog on Three Legs! Diagnosed 09/26/2012 with Osteosarcoma, amputated 12/4/2012.  Had a wonderful 5 1/2 months painfree until he ran for the Bridge on 5/15/2013.  Always in my heart, and always a guardian angel of my pack...   You can follow his Tripawd Adventures, before and after, in my blog, Frank'n'Farter!

CHRISTINE!  OMD.  Always good to hear from you, regardless of the circumstances!!  And only YOU can paint the most beautiful, inviting  and fun picture of The Bridge so exquisitely!  

I DO hope you'll do an update  and let us know what's  going in with you with you and Mr Wilson.  Frankin's banner shows up pften and it always makes me smile.  And it makes me happy to know he and Maggie are together❤
