    Hopefully everyone received our email. Mom sent it out to smaller groups at a time.
    Barb, Mom wanted a beer or wine so bad on Tuesday. And pizza. We held her down and talked her out of it.

    My heart is broken at the news of Truman. I know that Gus is at the gate of the Bridge waiting for their reunion.

    Our love, thoughts, and prayers will always be with Karen and BooBear.

    12:06 pm on August 28th, 2014

    We welcomed Truman to This Side of the Bridge with love and open paws. Gus was beside himself to see Truman made whole and Restored to Prime. Truman is no longer in pain. The only hurt now is the one of Karen’s heart with the loss of her love and best friend. Karen, the Veil will remain thin. Remember, we never leave you.

    Dear Creator, Please bless and keep Truman’s spirit. Please, comfort those who are grieving his loss especially Karen. Thank you for the time they had together. Thank you for the tender care she gave him. Please bless Truman will know he is loved. Amen.

    Peace and blessings. Sometimes it seems like there are no blessings, but they can be witnessed even in times of great pain. And it seems like the family of this blog are experts to all that is blessing.

    He walks on
    He walks on
    He walks on
    Among the stars

    The stars will sing
    The stars will sing
    The stars will sing
    A song of welcome

    There is peace
    There is peace
    There is peace
    And burdens lifted

    A new life waits
    A new life waits
    A new life waits
    Where spirits are together

    He walks on
    He walks on
    He walks on
    To be a star

    Rio: Unbeknownst to your friend, you are an experienced traveler. Try to calm your friend down because she is going to have soooo much fun, everything will go perfectly tikkedy boo and she will probably come home, quit her job, pack up you and Beau and move North! Along with Wose & Grizz, they will become the Best Dam Handlers for AJ and Philip. WhooooHoooo! Go Snowhook!

  38. O'Howlers
    9:38 pm on August 28th, 2014

    We can’t believe T&G were allowed to say “bookie”. Ay ay ay.

  39. Barb & Maggie
    9:55 pm on August 28th, 2014

    Howlers, We don’t think it would hurt to cheat a little on your diet. Maybe a splurge on the weekends?

    Night for now. Off to dream land.

    We here are going to set aside some fish heads to share with Rio’s Friend. I ate one of my lady’s boots yesterday, another delicacy of the kennel. Delish!

    10:04 pm on August 28th, 2014

    Rio: I have yet to eat her other boot. I’d be happy to save it for your Friend.

  44. Riö -The Evil Pug
    10:29 pm on August 28th, 2014

    Boot!…I bet if she can cook it over a campfire she would eat it with a little marshmellow on top…snort!…She is really looking forward to sitting around an Alaskan Campfire for some reason…heh!

    Oh my, I think Truman and my friend Faye’s husband must have been on the same trip over that Rainbow bridge.

    It has been busy here and I am only now caught up with the last few days. Karen and BooBear we are sorry for your loss. Gus is no longer alone over the Rainbow bridge. (Although how he could he be, with all the Plunder pals now cavorting on the other side.)

    11:10 pm on August 28th, 2014

    Rio, I can’t wait to see all the pictures and other details your friend will send the blog. I hope you nag her about NOT FORGETTING HER CAMERA.

  47. Thieves!
    11:16 pm on August 28th, 2014

    Or her airborn, or her favorite tan pug. Rio, does it look like your Friend is packing for two?

    11:17 pm on August 28th, 2014

    Packed!…I am in the know first-paw that the little Kamera, Kamera-Charge Cord AND the Kamera Software AND cord to download fotos is already packed…snort!…My friend thinks she will be able to upload her Kamera software onto the Hobbits fancy Apple and WAH-LAA upload her photos of each day to CHobbits computer…sniff!…We shall see…We shall See…heh!heh!

    Rio – we had a friend who traveled the world with Doctors Without Borders. She said that one lesson she learned is that almost anything is edible if it is deep fried.
    Wonder how deep fried moose lips would be.

    Airborne!…My friend gulped down her first prelim Airborne concoction today after visiting a local Wally-Mart…grunt!…She will be doing this each day before the actual take-off…heh!heh!grunt!…She really does follow my good advice…snort!

    Jello!…My friend told the Hot-Shot she would probably be a mound of jello tomorrow and not to expect to much out of her…heh!…He said he would be right there when she checks in online to her flight and make sure all is golden….sniff!…This may or may not be a comfort to her…heh!…It’s a long story…best not told tonight…gasp!

    Again, I am late to the table. I hope the Karen will draw strength from this family as I did. It is a deep well.

    ML: Wyatt became a dainty licking pro thanks to your maw. She was very patient as he tried his new skill. He is happy to give dainty licks to Karen for medicinal purposes only.

    My friends,
    Thank you for your prayers and support through this entire fight. Even though Truman eventually lost the war, he fought every battle with courage. God has given him peace and rest now. He soars with the angels.
    I love you all.

    Rio, after your friend stays at The Hobbit Hotel, she will be ruined for any other kind of accommodation. Talk about Hostess with the Mostest. The ‘rents were fabulously pampered.
