Condolences To Rio And Family

“I never know what to say at a time like this,” Bernie says.

“Me either,” says Spence. “You can say they’ll all be together again one day, or the departed one is in a better place, but lots of people don’t believe that.”

“And lots of people who say they believe it actually don’t, not deep down,” says Admin.

“So what’s the answer?” says Bernie. They pass the bourbon around.

“‘Sorry for your loss’ sounds so lame,” Spence says.

“It’s not lame,” Admin says. “There’s acknowledgment of loss, and you’re sharing, if in a much smaller way, the feeling. It’s always appreciated and remembered – don’t forget the consciousness of the bereaved is often elevated. They’re so painfully aware of how it feels to be alive.”

“Okay then,” Bernie says. “Sorry for your loss it is.”

They clink glasses. “But people do live on in memory,” Spence says.

“That’s something, at least,” says Admin.

“Here’s to memory.”


“To memory.”

    And to Bernie: You are Really Good.

    I was reading every word due to some kind of moisture in my eyes.

    Choke!… I read today’s post and I knew I had to share it with Her… snort!… I usually don’t let her read what I get up to out here on Chet’s blog… sniff!…Well, that was a huge mistake ….wheeze!… I didn’t think she had any more water left in her, but the flood gates are open again…sob!… I don’t know what to do at a time like this except say, “Thank you. Thank you so much for thinking of us and our family.” …sniffle

    Grandma!… We are going to walk over to where grandma is living and take her outside in the fresh air… snort!…She is taking the loss of her son-inlaw very hard… sniff!… It’s a long walk and we should be driving over there in my opinion…grumble!… But someone is set on making me suffer today one way or another… sputter!… I will be back later if I survive…grunt!

    We didn't get to ready the posts last night due to heavy winds and storms in the area, so we didn't know about Rio's friend's dad until this morning.

    We join the group in expressing our sadness over you loss. And we share in the toast to wonderful memories. Thank you, Bernie, Admin and Spencer for a beautifully written piece.

    Rio, I'm so sorry for your loss. This post made me cry just now, and Megan, and some of Mommy. Hang in there, Pug. I saw a Pug yesterday, too, that made me think of you. Well, thinking of you always.

    Tailwags and licks. Lexi-a pup who cried(if you call it crying), and who's paw is getting better.

    Great, moving post today by Spence It is appreciated by all of us. I think that when people say, "sorry for your loss", we are really trying to say that we care about you and what you are going through.

    Sniff!… You guys are the best blog friends a guy could have….snuffle!…I know the reason I found this place was to get me through some difficult times…snort!… It does help to know there are others out there that care about me and my friend…cough!… Even though we’ve never met face to face it seems like we are old friends…wheeze!

    Paws!… My paws are killing me!…snort!… That long walk was too much….crap!…I just want to lie in my bed and sleep forever but now we are leaving to go check on her mother…grunt!…Her mom is sort of in a tizzy this morning and needs someone to talk to…wheeze!

    Mom!… Well, I think she got her mom to calm down a little and not fret over all the stuff she needs to do…grunt!… Dad did not want a service and he did not want to have to pay for feeding a bunch of people who never came to visit him….snort!… He was sort of like Grampy, and had it up to here with a lot of things and people… heh!… So my friend suggested they go up the hill to the casinos and spend some of dad’s money …snicker!…Her mom laughed so hard she couldn’t breath. Probably because dad was very tight with his money and the thought that the first thing mom does is go gamble with it really tickled her funny bone… heh!

  14. Riö - The Evil
    10:15 am on June 19th, 2010

    Shows!… We are watching Dogs 101 because there will be a bit about Siberian Huskies…snort!…We found out there is a new show starting tonight on the Animal Planet channel called, ‘Last Chance Highway’….wheeze!… Its about these people who go to great extents to rescue dogs… grunt!… It might be a good show, although it might also be a tear jerker too…sniff!

    Whoops, Riö, that's Bess drinking to your friend's dad's memory

    Second . . . We never thought we would have to force feed a Newfoundland. These dogs are vacuum cleaners, but Gracie????

    I just started crying last night, she was so listless and NOT eating. No temperature, no pain. So . . I figured out we could put food in a blender with water, liquify the food, put it in a bottle and up end it down her throat. So we did. We did it once last night and twice today.

    She has a little more energy and when all the dogs saw the new pool (see above) she got in and played a bit. We were so happy.

    She ate a little canned food after that. If we still have to force feed her we will, but we prefer not to. She needs food to produce milk.

    She loves the puppies, so that is good.

    Here she is in the pool.

    Melanie!… I knew that was my Bess!…Hey!…Her top-notch is growing out!… sniff!…Thanks for drinking to Memories for us….sniff!…Sometimes that’s all you have left. Oh and tons of photos.

    Gracie!… Force Feed?…. cough!… I do not know that concept… sneeze!… Which reminds me, I am hungry!… grunt!

    Rio – Mom and I are having a drink to memories. Mom is having bourbon, something about that's what she has to drink for this occasion, and I, tee hee, got a very small bowl of beer. Sammie is here with us and we're making her drink water 'cause she's too little.

  19. Siberian Husky
    12:40 pm on June 19th, 2010

    It's a good sign that Gracie is enjoying the pool. It makes mom want to go out and buy one, for her, not me.

    Keep us posted, Melanie. We are all cheering for Grace and want her to get back to normal.

  20. Riö - The Evil
    12:53 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Snort!… I don’t know how Admin, Spence and Bernie knew, but that’s exactly what her dad would have wanted everyone to do, have a good strong drink in his memory ….grunt!… Everyday at 3:00 he would make himself a drink of Vodka and Seven-Up…heh!… “Lets have a little snort!” he would say….cough!… He would never drink much more unless there was one of our infamous poker games going on… snicker! …Then he would have a few more snorts… heh!… Aunt Barb and Aunt Lily were always in on those games….ha!…Talk about laughing till you thought you would explode… heh!heh!

  21. B. Stover
    12:56 pm on June 19th, 2010

    I researched post-partum depression in dogs on the internet but there isn't much of anything helpful. Are the puppies still too small to let in the other Newfs? I'm wondering if Grace wants her regular schedule and her regular buddies back. You guys know best.

    Just watched my favorite episode of Warehouse 13–"Duped"–which is On Demand. Now I'll be singing the Jefferson Airplanes' White Rabbit song for about a week.

    Thank goodness. Hope this continues.

    Siber-H: Come on, even Patsy got in the pool (the shallow end because the yard is not level) and she hates the water. In fact, Patsy does water rescue work by NOT letting anyone in the water. I guess it saves time.

    B. Stover, The other Newfs are not allowed in until they are much older and then only one at at time.

    Franklin had such a good time in the pool he rough housed with Katie and Rose, they had a blast. It's a good thing the pool is only $25.

    Riö, it sounds like quite a family!

  23. B. Stover
    1:20 pm on June 19th, 2010

    I'm glad Grace ate by herself. That's a good sign. Would the other Newfs accidently hurt the puppies?

    Rio: Your friend's dad sounds like he was a lot of fun.

    There are baby sparrows in the garden who don't seem to understand why they can't fly through the doorwall. Their mom feeds them in whatever awkward position they find themselves.

    Rio – Mom tips her glass of diet Dr. Pepper to your friend's dad's memory. (Bee – are all the apostrwhatever call them in the right places?)

    I don't know know if anyone here has read Randy Pauch's book "The Last Lecture", but, he said something about "whenever someone you love dies, a piece of you goes with them." It was really quite beautiful.

    I am so glad that Gracie finally ate on her own! I am worried about her.

    Melanie: I wanna come live at your house!! Your dogs get tents and swimming pools. I only get Chicken Jerky treats, but now we are OUT. They are gone! The bag is empty! Nada. No Chicken Jerky treats for WW of the WWW, and mom is doing what? Taking a nap, that's what!! This calls for an emergency trip to Costco.

    Like, right now!!

    To Spence, Admin, and Bernie: well said. To Chet: Well written.

    Rio's friend has had an extremely difficult year, with many losses. I am glad that Rio is there for you. He is the best!!

    1:41 pm on June 19th, 2010

    SiberH!…On Dogs 101 they showed Huskies swimming in a pool!…snort!…So your fear is not hereditary…heh!… When you get that new pool, try the shallow end like Patsy does!….sneeze!

  26. Siberian Husky
    1:42 pm on June 19th, 2010

    A Newf that hates the water!…Patsy. She must be my soul mate in the Newf breed, Melanie.

    GOOD GIRL, GRACIE You have to keep your strength up, so keep eating.

  27. Siberian Husky
    1:51 pm on June 19th, 2010

    All Right now, Melanie and Rio…You guys are giving my mom ideas. She is thinking she will go to Walmart tomorrow and get a pool like the Newfs have. She actually doesn't know if I will or won't go in it, and I am not saying. To be continued…….

  28. Riö - The Evil
    1:53 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Unbelievable! … heh!… You guys are not going to believe this but my friend just got a phone call from her mom and she decided gambling away some of dad’s money was not a bad idea at all… snicker!… So my friend, her mom and her brother and his wife are going up to Central City or Black Hawk next Wednesday….snort!…Apparently, her brother was having a hard day today and thought that was an awesome idea. It cheered him up…heh!… The best thing is her mom is in a very good mood too tonight because of this little plan…sneeze! … Who knew? Sometimes my friend comes up with the damnedest things and they work out… heh!

  29. Siberian Husky
    2:06 pm on June 19th, 2010

    I think that is a really good idea, Rio. I'm sure your family and your friend's mom went through a heck of a lot before your dad passed away. There are no words to express what people go through during times like that. Now, it it time to totally relax and enjoy life with a trip like that. This makes a whole lot more sense to me than putting the money into a fancy service, especially since your dad didn't want that. Mom and I are into doing doing what works for us, not what is traditional.

  30. Riö - The Evil
    2:14 pm on June 19th, 2010

    SiberH!…I too think it is a good idea!…snort!…Her dad did like to go up the hill now and then and play Black Jack…grunt!…So it is kind of fitting that they go on this trip…cough!… They all need a break for sure and the fact that her mom found $$’s stashed away that dad didn’t tell her about makes it all the more fun!…snicker!… I just wish I could go along, but casinos are funny about letting Pugs into the gaming rooms… wheeze!!

  31. Siberian Husky
    2:32 pm on June 19th, 2010

    I wonder if your friend could pass you off as a therapy or assistance dog, Rio. Mom has been tempted to try that at times with me, but she says I would blow it.

  32. Sam
    2:42 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Rio, you could go to the casino as a therapy dog, honestly. You just need the little coat and they let you right in.

  33. Riö - The Evil
    2:56 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Really!… What do these little Therapy suits look like?… wow!… Maybe grandma could whip me up one and I would be on my way to a gambling addiction… heh!…Then lil Lexi would be all over me again…snorkel!…I don’t think I could pull the ‘therapy’ part off either SiberH!…heh!

    Stover!… There is a show On Demand that is called, “Down the Wormhole”…wow!…I just happened upon it and it is so interesting I thought of you and I think you may want to give it a look-see…wheeze!… I cannot think of the actors name who narrates it, but he played God in a movie I can’t remember the name of and he played a detective in the movie called, “Seven”. And he was in a movie called, “The Bucket List”… grrrrrr!… It’s on the tip of my tongue….wheeze!… ANYWAY, he narrates this show and we are finding it fascinating so far… gasp!…Although, the Rockies game will be on shortly, so we will have to save the program for later… heh!

  34. Riö - The Evil
    2:59 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Stover!…’Through the Wormhole’ narrated by Morgan Freeman… sigh!

  35. Melanie
    3:02 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Riö, you could have your grandma fix up a coat that says "Official Taster."

    Then your friend could just put you right on the buffet table!

  36. Melanie
    3:04 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Does anyone know how Staff and Kats are? I think they were going to WI and I think there were some bad storms there last night.

  37. wookie of chevy chas
    3:12 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Rio. I think you are thinking of Morgan Freeman. You know, a swamp vest might pass for a therapy suit.Kind of the Superman's cape sort of fashion statement if you know what I mean. They are not too smart at casinos anyway. I'd lend you mine,but I think it would be a bit big for you. Wookie

  38. Riö - The Evil
    3:15 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Wow!… “Official Taster”! I like that a lot!…snort!snort!… Ohhhh Grandma …..grunt!… We have not heard anything from Staff lately, I know Alice and Abbie are home with some guy checking in on them… wheeze!… I hope his name is not Julian Sawyer… shudder!

  39. Riö - The Evil
    3:21 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Wookie!…Thanks but I’m zoning in on the “Official Taster” idea… snort!… What a great idea. I could be ON the buffet table and no one, and I mean NO ONE could lay a hand on me and push me off…heh!…Well, maybe there is one person who would… mmmm…I need a face mask too!…cough!… One that looks like Bobby Flay…heh!

  40. wookie of chevy chas
    3:22 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Gracie. Glad that your appetite is returning. Ask for more ice cream. Roast turkey is also really yummy, and it makes your poop smell really good too!!! Looks like you were having a good time in the pool. It's been real hot here in Chevy Chase, but when I took another semi-unauthorized plunge in Rock Creek earlier this week, I got subjected to another bath. Yuck. Your friend, Wookie

    Yeep!… Whoa! There was a great big thunder sound right over our house!… snort!.. Suddenly its really dark and scary out again…sniff! sniff!… We didn’t notice the weather changing because we are watching the Rockies play (1 –0 Rocks top of the 3rd)… yeep!growl

    Mom also got the bourbon out for some reason tonight. She is making a toast to Rio and his friend and family. She is glad we are all friends, and she got a little teary when she read some of the posts today. I think she was thinking back to her mom and her time of passing.

  44. Riö - The Evil
    3:57 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Wookie!…While you are here, on behalf of me and my friend, I want to thank you so very much for that lovely prayer you said last night for us… sniff!… You are truly a good friend to both of us… snorkel!…And we treasure our friends.

  45. Riö - The Evil
    4:02 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Barb! MagPie! …Please do have a toast to our dad and to your mom!…sniff!… We The Living have to remember to take advantage of every moment we are given on this great earth… snort!

  46. B. Stover
    4:06 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Thanks, Rio. I'll check it out. Right now I'm watching Doctor Who, who is in big trouble at the moment.

    I think staff said they were going to one of the Dakotas.

  47. Riö - The Evil
    4:47 pm on June 19th, 2010

    SiberH!…Are you stricken with fear just imagining that pool showing up on your back yard??… snort!… I sure wish you guys could get some photos up on this here blog for us!…grunt! … I would love to see your expression when the pool is all set up and you are staring at it…heh!heh!

    Rocks!… Its 1 – 1 tied in the top of the 6th…drat!

  48. Siberian Husky
    5:11 pm on June 19th, 2010

    I may not be staring at it, Rio. I may not even look at it. We are suppose to have a high of 97 tomorrow, so Mom can get her money's worth and wade in it. Mom bought a pool for her female Siberian (before my time) and the dog laid in the shade and watched mom play in the pool. I can see how this could prove to be entertaining.

    This is a slow baseball game. I don't care as long as the Rockies win.

  49. Barb & Maggie
    5:12 pm on June 19th, 2010

  57. Lexi
    6:00 pm on June 19th, 2010

    Rio! Don't gnaw on couches! I've learned my lesson-but on wooden chairs. I kept getting splinters and coughing and choking. I don't want you to choke! Stop eating it!

    Right now my house is going bonkers. Apparently, there's some festival where we live, and they're all going to it, but they're not allowed to bring me, for some COMPLETELY DUMB reason. I'm home all alone with nothing to do, and it's getting hotter everyday, and it's starting to piss me off. Everytime they coe home, they got something special, and Megan always gets sunburned and complains about it. I didn't know what it was at first, and when I got real close…I scratched it. Man, did she scream at me. I know what it is now.

    My paw is getting better. Hell, I think it's fine now! How's yours doing, Rio?

    Watching a scary movie right now called Mirrors with Megan. Caution: I may lose my hearing again.

    Well, tailwags and licks. Lexi-a pup who's….got nothing to say for this part right now, so, a pup who's just a pup. πŸ˜›

    Well, I'm going to hit the hay right now with Megan. She said that we'll be able to see the rest tomorrow, and she's getting kind of tired. And I may be overusing the πŸ™‚ πŸ˜› and πŸ™ things. Oh, wow, that was a big yawn, Night all! Night Chet and Bernie and Spencer and Admin and Rio and Sam and Wookie and Wolfie and…pant…pant…and…MollyPop and…Melanie…and…I'm just going to leave now.

    Tailwags and licks. Lexi-a panting pup.

    WHEW…that was a good game and I'll be generous and say that both teams gave it their all. I'll sleep a lot better knowing the Rockies won.

    I missed a word on my post this morning. I meant to say I was reading every OTHER word…oh well.

    Staff was traveling from North Dakota to Montana yesterday so she would not have gone through those bad storms.

    Melanie: Hope Gracie keeps eating. Maybe feeding 12 puppies is just taking every bit of her energy and she has none left to feed herself. How long does she have to nurse those Greedy Guts?

    Wow!…That was by far the most exciting game so far this season!…woo!…What a day it has been all in all….snort!… I want to take this time to thank Admin, Spencer and Bernie for thinking of us again today. Your post is so very special to us. We will definitely be keeping it forever…cough! … I know I can speak for both of us when I say all three of you guys, plus Chet, are very special to us… sniff!… The last two books my dad was able to read before his eyes became too blurry were ‘Dog On It’ and ‘Thereby Hangs A Tail’….sniff! … After each book he said, “That Chet is some dog!” Then he would laugh….heh!…The only other dog he said that about was Cassie The Butt Sniffing Dog….sneeze!… Well, there is a whole story behind that and we will share it one day, but right now we are too tired to stay up.

    Hey!… Me and my friend are going to the farm tomorrow to see her best friend and my best friend, Pepper!…heh!…There will be horses to agitate…snicker! …Good night all, puggish nips to all!…Thank you again for being there for us when we definitely needed your support and love. We love you guys too!…gruff!

    It is just after 11:00 pm here at the Librarian's home (Mountain time) and she and I are both in the tiny dining room playing on our computers. The guys are playing with computers in the living room. 4 computers going at once.

    We do occasionally talk to each other.

    ~Rio, I am sorry for your loss. (thanks Admin.) I hope that soon the good memories will overwhelm the sadness.

    I have to go and read the rest of yesterday and today's blog, but I just wanted to touch base and let everyone know we had arrived safely.
