Okay Jerry...I have NO idea where to put do wherever you see fitwinker

I went back to the "blog" icon to make sure I hadn't missed any recent vlog posts. Anyway, long story short, I started going back and reading some older ones.

It really makes for some nteresting holiday reading!

Starting with some of Pug Maggie's. I had so much fun REALLY getting to know Pug Maggie! smiley Of course there were tears along the waycrying To see pictures of Maggie and Tani holding the see Maggie sitting in "her" front seat spot of the see her sitting like Royalty in her really get to know the true essence of who she is...such a privilege! What a loved pup with an incredible mom! But we already know that.

And then to know the "history" of her banner...which I had always wondered fascinating!

Anyway, I'm not going to sit here and recount everyone's journey, but to go back and "get to know" these beloved souls from the beginning and their wonderful is a heartwarming privilege.

I know many of us on here a year, more or less know our stories pretty well. I don't think many of us know "the story behind the banner" and that would be so interesting!

Anyway, just thought I'd mention this in the "for whatever it's worth" section!

I bow down in loving silence to ALL of you who stay here and support us with your grace, your giving hearts and invaluable knowledge even after your loved ones have crossed over. We honor you.

With love and eternal gratitude,

Sally and Happy Hannah

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Absolutely! Not only do you learn the stories behind these special people and dogs, but there is so much information at our fingertips for each person coming to the site. This year I will make it a resolution to start reading more of these.

Happy New Year to all!
