  1. WELCOME SULLY!!!!!!!! We love you bud! Greyhounds are us. Your mom says you are an outstanding fellow and have fit right in without any issues. But then thats not a surprise since you are obviously pretty special...and handsome too!
  2. My deepest sympathy. It's been my experience they they definitely do follow each other to the bridge sometimes. Bobber was so distraught after her Mom left that she simply laid down and died like the day before Mother's Day- undoubtably so she could surprise and spend Mothers Day with her Mom. Gilly Boy left to be with his true love Francene whom he met and fell in love with when Francene's mom was fostering him. Of course we miss them so but I cannot help but feel good about the happiness they are sharing with their beloveds now. I am sure Luna & Nova are with each other again. Love always wins. You 3 spirits will ALWAYS be connected by love. Someday you will know that in your heart. My deepest sympathy.
  3. They didn't tell me that I was joining a cult; that my life would be changed forever to be immeasurably better, happier, and more loving; and that my heart would be forever claimed by this strange new dog creature known as a greyhound.
  4. My deepest sympathy. Perhaps she will send you a sign that she is OK -safely at the bridge. Only her body died. The Agnes that you loved, and that loves you, is spirit and is O.K. Whats more don't forget love is energy like EVERYTHING else. That is science not wishful thinking. As such it cannot be created.....or destroyed-not even by death. I hope this brings you some comfort. Until we meet again.. You say that all you have left are memories but this is not so. You see, when I took leave of my earthly body I left a little something behind for you. You can't touch it, hold it or examine it, for what I left behind is far too uninhibited for confinement. I left in your tender care a piece of my soul. I placed it right next to your own which is quite fitting as we were always side by side in our earthly life together. I love you too much to have left you with nothing but memories that tend to fade and grow cloudy as the years go by. I love you too much to have vanished without a trace. How selfish it would be of me to remove love and light from your life. I understand your tears, each one you shed is testament to your love for me and I am honored and humbled. But don't forget the good things we shared - remember and smile. This is an honor for me as well. When you need me I will be here. Close your eyes, relax, take slow, deep breaths and picture me in your mind. Shut off the world and your notions of what you think death is and give me a chance. Look for the subtle signs I send you. Don't stop being proud of me, I am a friend to be proud of, I am still your friend and soul mate. Don't memorialize the death of my body but instead honor and celebrate my never-ending life for it is eternal and forever as is my love for you. Until we meet again... (Only part of a very long heart felt poem by Terri Oronato) ************************************************************************************************************************ "For love is as strong as death.... Many waters cannot quench love, nor can the floods drown it. If a man would give for love all the wealth of his house, it would be utterly despised." -Song of Solomon 8:6-7 "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." "What we have enjoyed we can never lose…All that we love deeply becomes a part of us."-Helen Keller
  5. WOW!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING THE PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You know what this means?........ROCKET'S FRY DAY HAS GONE INTERNATIONAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know he is very very happy that he has been able to extend the special enjoyment of these delicious treats to all hounds everywhere. Houndies need AND DESERVE it! The video is awesome!!!!! Thank you so much and hugs to Buddy. You might want to put on your calendar that there is also a "Rocket's Spoil Your Hound Day" on Nov 24. November 24 was Rocket's birthday. When he crossed over in October, his birthday was changed to "Spoil Your Hound Day." It is just a day to do something with your hounds like a special walk, or get them a special treat like ice cream or fries etc. Rocket would be proud to give other hounds any excuse to have food that was no good for them. And what could be better than that?! Have a greyt day and thanks again for joining in the fun!
  6. Cletus don't mess around when there's french fries involved!
  7. Greyt idea on being prepared in case of shortage! Nowadays it behooves a person or greyhound to be proactive like that!
  8. Well I'm sorry my pictures are not better but they ate them so fast all I could get from Turbo was a quick snap and Reba had almost inhaled all of them before I could get pics. Octane got the most fries because he is after all Octane first and a greyhound second and he was not on a diet! So I did get 2 decent pics of him. I am so happy this turned out so great and we had some fun. It was needed on this end. God bless our hounds. Rocket, THANK YOU so much for being a most extraordinary Master of Ceremony and God bless you too. Thanks everyone for this happy celebration. We love you.
  9. Those are some nice fries and you can tell they were greatly enjoyed!!!!! Looks delicious Ivy's was focused on the fry, thats for sure and Cherry knows just what to do with them-chomp on them before they get away! And then of course Ivy eats them like the lady she is. Thanks so much for the pictures! They are greyt!

  11. Nothing wrong with that. I'm betting Rocket would agree that it will be easier to eat more fries if your not frying along with them! Besides, what could be better than going to Sleepy Town with a belly 'full' of fries?
  12. Oh he might be at the Bridge but I just know he is enjoying this .

  18. My deepest sympathy. The broodies find their way so deep into our hearts! She will be with you always . Her love will always emanate from your own heart now-where she left a little piece of her soul. Until we meet again.. You say that all you have left are memories but this is not so. You see, when I took leave of my earthly body I left a little something behind for you. You can't touch it, hold it or examine it, for what I left behind is far too uninhibited for confinement.

I love you too much to have left you with nothing but memories that tend to fade and grow cloudy as the years go by. I love you too much to have vanished without a trace. How selfish it would be of me to remove love and light from your life. I understand your tears, each one you shed is testament to your love for me and I am honored and humbled. But don't forget the good things we shared - remember and smile. This is an honor for me as well. When you need me I will be here. Close your eyes, relax, take slow, deep breaths and picture me in your mind. Shut off the world and your notions of what you think death is and give me a chance. Look for the subtle signs I send you.

I will always admire the strong love between you two. If only humans could be like that. You left just in time to spend Mothers Day with your Momma and surprise her with the best Momma's Day gift ever. Tell Momma how thankful I am that she did such a greyt job raising you to be such a shining star-forever -and for her part in bringing us all together. And I will also be celebrating with you! You both gave me the opportunity to be a part of an amazing love story and I will never leave ya'll. I am humbly forever grateful that you adopted me into your love circle. Love you Bobber!!!!! always & forever sweet baby dog... Have a SUPER Happy Birthday!!!!!!!! NEVER forgotten.
