I know that many of you have/had pets who mean a lot to you. I read today is Rainbow Bridge Day, so we can take the time to remember our four legged friends. I still miss and love you Rex (malamute cross), Bosun (black lab) and my very special Wizard (Sheltie) I must admit tho' I think of them a lot more often than one day a year.

I have the ashes of my yellow lab, Jamie and Steven and I have the ashes of Molly (calico kitty) and Sasha (Shepherd/husky mix) with their pictures on our tv stand. Miss them everyday! Where we live now we can't have pets.

Those 4-legged family members sure do get into your heart! I so miss our orange cat Killian, we called her The Queen of Everything and even the vets & techs called her The Queen :) Orange/red females aren't common - we got her as a very tiny ball of fluff in 1998 from our son who saw her in a pet shop & just couldn't let her be there, she lived until 2010 when we had to let her go. Also miss my dog Nickie who was my best friend growing up. Miss my Grand Dog Dutch [a Boxer, son saved her from being sent to the pound because the owners of litter couldn't sell her to show due to a black spot in her mouth] who was such a sweetie. Miss my Grand Cats Muncie, Iskie [son saved her from being put to sleep at age 1yr], Soleil [other son took her in after she was literally taken from the jaws of a Doberman by our vet tech], Bagheera and Loki.

We still get "fur loving" from our Grand Dogs Laika who unfortunately is getting old for a Boxer and Argosa a standard poodle who is smart as a whip and just turned 1 year old, a real stinker right now.

(I've always said never trust anyone who doesn't like dogs and/or cats or pets)

My three dogs are my life!

We have the ashes of our 13 years old beagle, Shelby, on our shelf in the living room.

The pictures are Ella (2), Snickers (9,) and Bailey, (4).

I grew up on a farm... so many pets to remember... however the most recent to pass is the dog as my profile picture - Annie (Little Orphan Annie) a mini poodle, we rescued her from someone who never should have a dog. She suffered from cushings and succumbed to it in December 2015 :(

Cindy, our Shelby had Cushings too. That is one heck of an expensive illness! The tests and medications were outrageous. She lived for 3 1/2 years with it....tough disorder.
