2/22/13 Hello my love, It's been 5 days since your passing and there's not one minute lost that goes by Mama and I don't think about you. I hope you have made many friends showing from the beautiful letters and cards we have received in your honor you were very liked and loved. Mama and I have made up a small memorial in your honor that you will never be forgotten. I want to say THANK YOU for the wonderful time and being the best friend you were. You have showed Mama and I what it is love a beautiful dog like you. I thank God everyday since we picked you up the very first day from the animal shelter till he took you away. I pray to Saint Francis to look over you and your newly friends that you will be loved, fed and sheltered till we can meet again in Rainbow Bridge meadow. One thing my son never be afraid to sleepwalk into my dreams or in our home. Cwazy miss's you also she's constantly looking for you and she still never dares to lay in your favorite sleeping spot. Love You Dada!!|
2/22/13 Hi my little Peanut Butter dog. The last 5 days have been truly difficult for all of us but we know that you are happy now and do not hurt anymore. Maris looks everywhere for you, even in the closet and in the pool. Try to send here a brain message to let her know where you are. We got your ashes back today and plan to display them for all to see in a special urn made just for you. The days and nights are just not the same without you. I miss looking under the table for you. I miss your look of "theres someone in the chich-en"! That's usually just dad sneaking you a snack anyway. Now you are free to eat all the cookies and ice cubes you want and you can still pick out the little green pieces of food that you hate and try to pawn them off on your sister. We miss you very much and we will write to you again soon. Love you bud!
02/24/13 Hi Baby Zoey. Its been one week today and we really miss you. Hope you are doing well and playing nice with your new friends. Please tell your sister to eat, she's also having a hard time and misses you alot. She is lonely and has no one to go pee pee with. Talk to you soon! Love Mama and Dada and Boggie Sister Cwazy.

The week was very busy as usual never time to do anything but you and I always had the time for whatever. I miss you napping next to me during the day so does Cwazy. Thank You for your visit the other night it was quite interesting. By coming home and checking up on us has been a great experience and has put my grief at a ease. but I still MISS YOU!! Mama has started on your memorial and I think you would be proud we saved a lot your most enjoyable items to put into your memorial. I hope ST. Francis is watching over you and your being good for him. I hope to see you again and please don't be stranger drop in once a while just to say HI. I won't waste your fun time with your little furry buddies with a bunch of BLAH BLAH. we just want you to know were still thinking of you LOVE YOU Joey. Take Care and be good.
03/03/13 Hi Zoester. Today is two weeks. Hope you're having fun up there. I still hurt but have to be strong for Maris. She's not eating right. Dr. Waltman is making her wear a collar to help with her grieving. He also thinks she may have Valley Fever. Thanks for visiting us the other night, you are welcome anytime - all the time. Your home is always here! I miss you alot. We all do. It's just not the same without you. Only knowing you are not hurting anymore helps. Your special urn should be delivered tomorrow. I will keep your ashes and leash and paw print in it for all to see. Love you baby Zoey.
03/9/13 Hi Joey, How are you I hope all is good. I have gathered up some of the special items today you most enjoyed and I placed them near you in the memorial box. Today your Mama and I went and got another pound puppy same place we found you. You will never be replaced in my heart or forgotten but it's time for your sister to be happy again. She misses you very much your sighting brings some comfort but she still looks everyday for you. I even still look for you. You will never be replaced as the baby you were you were very special and close to me and mama. And I like you to still visit anytime you like or when you have a spare moment. Come see your new brother he's your size but not sure if he'll understand I'm sure you'll help with that. We'll my son you stay safe under the arms of ST. Francis and be good and make sure you help the one's in need to Rainbow Bridge as others helped you find the way. When it's my time I'll need that help also and I'm counting on you to be the first to visit and show me the way. Good Night LOVE YOU DAYDAY Hugs and Kisses!!! Dada
03/10/13 Hey Baby Zoey! Today it has been three very lonely weeks without you. I hope your week went well. Maris has Valley Fever and has to take pills too, but not for forever. She will be better soon! Tomorrow we bring home Bubba Hotep; a new friend for Boggie Sister Cwazy. She is very lonely and needs someone to watch over. Please tell her that is okay to accept him. I miss you and think about you many times each day. I placed your memorial it a special place today so that everyone can see it! Dada made it so nice for you. I still have a few things of my own to add to it. Say hello and make friends with a doggie named Leah and a kitty cat named Jeter, and don't forget to hang out with Boo Boy. Stop by anytime to say hello or to lay in the grass and the nice warm sun, I know you loved to do that. I love you and miss you. I will write again next week to let you know how new brother is doing! A hundred kisses to you, Mama.
03/16/13 Hey Buddy how's it going? Things are getting better. I'm assuming you have met the new addition to our pack he reminds me in so many ways of your ways. Thank You for accepting him your sister Cwazy is coming around after her doctor visit and starting to eat again so thanks for the little push. Oh Boy Joey things have not been the same since your passing my heart still breaks and tears still quietly roll. I visit and pet your memorial urn everyday. What a great buddy and friend you were. I can't not help to think what we could have done to make it a more comfortable for you. We really tried our best, once you gave up we were lost even the doctor was lost at that point. I just had to let the hand of the Lord take you Mama and I couldn't do it I hope you understand that. We had sooo much love for you and we were being very selfish at your passing and didn't want you to leave. But we both understand none of us goes on forever. But we will see each other again if it's here in your home or the other side. Well stay safe in your journeys and don't forget us. Goodnight my son and see you next week. Loves, Hugs and kisses DaDa.
03/17/13 Hi Joey. Today is one month without you. Even with Bubba here, the house is not the same. It is better but not the same. Tomorrow we will come to your candle light vigil! Can't wait to see you. Your sister has some pee pee problems now, but hopefully she can take medicine to help her with that. Hope things are warm and sunny and fun where you are. I hope there is lots of dirty laundry for you to roll around in; I know how much you liked when I covered you with clothes on laundry day! Well dada NEEDS to go to WalMart right this minute, so I will write again soon. Love and miss you! Lotsa kisses! Love mama.
03/24/13 Hey Zoey! Today is 5 weeks that you're gone...but who's counting, right? How are things at the bridge this week? Easter is next Sunday, your favorite holiday because of all the Easter flowers! You have lots of pretty flowers at Rainbow Bridge to smell. Things are ok here. Maris and Cousin Bubba are getting along great. He is helping her to feel better. She doesn't have alot of energy to play with him that long, but she tries. He reminds her and me and dada a lot of you. Sometimes I think he IS you! He is little like you but red and black instead of brown. Maris stopped her appetite pill tonight so please tell her to keep eating anyway. She has to gain a little more weight and get strong again. Her pee pee troubles seem to be doing better too. She hasn't worn a diaper in two days! She is really having a tough time without you. You were all she had. Now she has Bubba to watch over. Anyway, don't want to keep you from your new friends too long. Just wanted to say HI! I love you and miss you very much. Keep visiting! Love mama. XOXOXOXOXOXOX
03/31/13 EASTER - Today is 6 weeks. Hi Zoey! Happy Easter! Hope you had some Easter pie and some ham for dinner. Dada got a new truck today so he was working on that. Cwazy and Bubba are doing great. Both spent hours today hunting for lions and lizards. Hope you're feeling well and helping all the new furbabies to adjust to their new home. I won't keep you, I know that you have lots of plans for today. Please visit us again soon, and tell your sister and cousin to try to sleep through the night! I love you very much and I miss you every day. I know we will be together again...someday! Love Mama and Boggie Sister Maris and Cousin Bubba.
3/31/13 HAPPY EASTER JOEY!!! I hope you had fun today finding all those hidden eggs your friends put out. Yes I did get another old truck much easier to work on. Your sister and cousin is killing me waking me up so early but it has to be done and you know from first hand. And none of it was your fault. I gave your sister your leash she gets so excited to go for walks just like you did when you were younger now Bubba a totally different story, gets freaked over everything almost. I hope all things are well and your eating good and feeling like you did as a young puppy. We all here miss you and still think of you in all of our activities. Be good and stop in for moment when you get a chance. Love You Joey and Happy Easter!! Love Dad
04/07/13 Hey Bud. Today is 7 weeks that I am without my little peanut butter dog. I miss you every day. I know that you are doing well at the bridge, and things here are starting to look up. Maris is doing much better but we need to go to the doctor on Tuesday to get a recheck. Bubba also has to go to see if his tick fever is gone. We have been going for walks a few times a week. Maris taught Bubba how to hunt for lizards, only he hunts for birds too! Please keep being a good doggie and always have fun with your new friends. We love and miss you so much! Love Mama.
4/8/13 Hi Joey, Sorry it took me a day longer to write, How is it going? I hope all is well, things are going fine here for the most part. I think you made a nice entrance to scare Bubba from the food bowl which was kinda funny Mama says. your sister is doing a lot better considering she is still with the valley fever. Hopefully everything comes back good. Well keep doing what your doing and stay being good. Love You Buddy till we meet in the end!!! dada
4/15/13 What's up Zoey!!! Just wanted to check in, sorry I am a day late. Well only news this week is that Bubba no longer has tick fever but now has two other diseases that we are working to fix and Boggie Sister Cwazy is not responding to the meds like the doctor would like so she has to take meat cookies twice a day. Please pray for her so that she gets strong again. Bubba is getting a little better with being a scaredy cat. He improves every day a little. I brought your pictures from work so that I can look at them here. Uncle Chicken isn't so happy, he used to like to look at you while he was working. The weather is beginning to get warm, almost too warm! Well thats all for tonight. I just wanted to say Hi and to tell you that I miss and love you and always will. Have fun chasing butterflies and smelling the flowers! Love mama and Maris and Bubba.
4/21/13 Hey Buddy! Long time no speak I apologize for that. I figure I'd give you a little space. But I'm sure you enjoy hearing our voices or our little letters to you. I just wanted to drop a few lines see how it's going and we haven't forgotten you. There still isn't a day that goes by and your not being remembered. My heart still aches but it's growing stronger knowing your still here with us in spirit and that's comforting for me. Cwazy and Bubba are doing fine for the most part and work has gotten a little slow but hopefully it'll pickup. But nothing really much going here, not looking forward to the hot weather coming but hopefully soon we'll all moved to the somewhat cooler temps just like we talked about when you were alive in body. But anyways I'll hooking up with again next week and I'll let you how things went. Take Care and be good Love You Buddy!! Dada
04/27/13 Hey Bud, today I need for you to go to the gates and look for your cousin doggie KC and help him cross. He is new to Rainbow Bridge and needs to share your treats and bed for a while until he gets his own. He is bigger than you but almost the same age! You guys will get along great. I know you will care for him and you will become lifelong friends! Ask him to visit his people parents too, like you do, to let them know that he is okay and safe and feels great! Then, Maris and Bubba are doing good. Bubba got a new harness because he got too big for his old one. Too many cookies! The new harness is too big though and he thinks he is FWEE when we take him for a walk. Tell him to be good. Maris has a little blood in her urine, so we have to see what the doctor says about that. Other than that all is well. Stay in touch, pay a visit once in a while, and know that not an hour goes by that I do not think about you. Love you lots. Mama.
4/29/13 HI DAYDAY HOW'S IT GOING. I HOPE ALL IS GOOD. DAYDAY PLEASE DO US A FAVOR AND SHOW KC AROUND AND HELP HIM GET USE TO THINGS NOW THAT HE HAS NOTHING TO FEAR BUT HAPPINESS NOW AND TO MEET ALL KINDS OF NEW FURRY FRIENDS. EVERYTHING IS GOOD SO FAR, HAVEN'T SEEN OR HEARD FROM YOU IN AWHILE. BUT I'M SURE YOU'VE BEEN QUITE ENJOYING YOURSELF. THERES STILL NOT A DAY GOES BYE THAT I'VE WISHED MANY TIMES OVER I COULD HAVE SPENT MORE TIME WITH YOU, I TOOK IT FOR GRANTED THE TIME YOU HAD HERE BUT YOUR STILL IN MY DREAMS AND ALWAYS IN MY HEART. LOVE YOU JOEY!! DADA
05/06/13 Hey Joey. How are you doing this week? Yesterday was 11 weeks that we have been without you and I miss you every day. Did you meet KC? I hope you guys get along well. Nothing else is new here. Maris and Bubba are doing well. Bubba learned how to climb on the waterfall, which is not good. Please tell him not to fall in!!! You were in my dreams two nights ago, so I said a little prayer for you and tonight I lit a candle for you. I really miss you. I wish I had you back. But I know you are well again and much happier now. I wish there was more that we could have done. We did the best that we knew how. Please take care of yourself and have fun at the Bridge. I will write again very soon. Love Mama.
05/21/13 Hi Zoey. We are in our 13th week. Sorry we haven't written, we wanted you to enjoy your new friends! All is well here. I miss you very much, and so does Maris. She thought she heard your collar at the doctor's the other day, but of course it wasn't you. Please come around again soon, I want you to meet Bubba!
5/23/13 Hi My Baby Joey, Happy Memorial weekend, It's been a few weeks since my last writing, I've really busy working with Mama at the store and still trying to keep myself going. I'm sure you've busy likewise. Cwazy and Bubba have been doing good. I just don't want you to think you have been forgotten and never will of course. I think about you quite often but, just can't seem to come to terms of your passing I wish I could've done something different. I know your in better place and ALOT happier but when your as special as you were it's really hard to come to realization that your gone. But I know someday I'll see you again and hope sure you feel the same way. Keep up what your doing and make sure your being good like you always were. Take Care and Love and MISS YOU!!! Love Dada
06/23/13 Hey Zoester. Today is 18 weeks without you and I miss you more and more each and every day. Today is SuperMoon day of 2013 so it will light your way at The Bridge so you can play all night! All is well. Maris and Bubba have grown to know each other and live in peace. They each know their roles. Maris is now the King like you were! I hope you have not forgotten all of us. I miss you so much. I will add a picture or two of Bubba since he is part of the family now. Please visit us, do not be scared; we aren't! Love you forever. Mama.

Yep, you too!!! Mama and Dada have found a place that you will love! We hope to be there in two months or so, just in time for the snow! Also, I need for you to take care of your boggie cousin Lucky Boy. He crossed a week ago today. He was very sick like you, but is now healed and back to his old self. Please show him how things work at the Bridge, and hope you make lifelong friends! Bubba is still sick; can't really figure out what is wrong with him but were working on it.

Yesterday was our first Christmas without you. We did put up a tree for you this year. We wish we would have put one up last year. Your grandmother had a nice blanket made with your picture on it! Maris and Bubba are doing great. They don't know what to make of the snow though. We hope that you have made many new friends and are doing well. Don't forget to stop by! I will write again soon.

She is finally off of her Valley Fever medicine and is feeling good. She has gained a little weight and eats a lot. Bubba is doing good too. He has a few health issues so please pray that he is okay. We have lots and lots of snow here. And its very cold here. You prefer the heat though...and do does Bubbies! Stop by and say hello! Love you, Mama, Maris and Bubbles.

He is still a baby so please teach him everything he needs to know to grow up big and strong! And share your food and cookies with him until his human parents can create a spot of his own. Love you! Mama
