Welcome Cousin!

This is our new little girl cousin, Toppi.
We are SOOooooo excited that she will be going
 to live with our mama's cousins Sheila and Mike in Texas. 

 Here is a letter we got from her today (it's her first!):

Hi cousins.  I will be flying into Houston Friday night to join my new family. I 
heard you live way up north but I was born in Montana.  I am going to become a Texan. I'm 
special cause I am a "toy" golden retriever.
Pretty cool, huh?  We think she is adorable and can hardly wait to meet her. Mommy says we'll get to meet cousin 
Sheila and Mike and both their furkids, Lilly and Toppi someday.  She is always promising us things such as this 
 but rarely comes through. Here's hoping!
Better sign off now.
Smooches from pooches,

Bonner: The Rainbow Bridge is a Better Place

BONNER V. ~ July 19th,2001 - May 2, 2014
(This water color is by artist D.J.Rogers, a California artist. We found it online.)

Our good friend and next door neighbor, Bonner, had inoperable cancer in his jaw and has been hanging on to life for several months now, keeping comfortable. The poor fellow's face had a grapefruit sized tumor, but he didn't let it affect his cheerful personality.  He always wagged his tail and went for walks with his mama and daddy each day, greeting us with joy.  Last Friday he no longer had that sparkle in his eyes that said he wanted to carry on.  His mommy fixed him his favorite meal, scrambled eggs & cat food for breakfast.  The 2 grandsons came over to have one last marshmallow roast with him at the fire-pit, which was his favorite activity with the boys. Sharing roasted marshmallows...most pleasurable.  He had a wonderful morning doing things that he loved, with the people he loved.  In the early afternoon his doctor came to his home and Bonner, beautiful, big, yellow Labrador went to the Rainbow Bridge.  We are all sad, but know that we will see him again some day, and he will be running and jumping and smiling his big Lab smile at the reunion.

Run free buddy.  You were a good boy.
