We WILL be okay!
Hi, everybuddy! It's me, Patches! We just want to let you all know that we are going to be okay. Okay, maybe not right away, but with all of your support and prayers, we are headed in the right direction!
Here, for your viewing pleasure, is a rare photo of Penny! Mom sneaked up on her when she was sleeping. She must have really be out because the flashy box didn't even wake her up! Maybe she was resting up for her big barkday celebration on Sunday. She will be 11 years old!
This is the last picture our mom took of Poppy. It was taken about 6 or 7 hours before she went to the bridge. We still miss her a LOT, but we are comforted by the fact that we know she's with our dad now. We are also very glad that she didn't suffer and that she showed no symptoms until about an hour before she left.
In other news from around here, our mom went to the Social Security office and found out that because she's OLD, she does qualify for some of our dad's benefits. Woohoo! That means that we get to keep our house! It sure is nice to get some GOOD news, for a change!
Our mom is trying to eat full meals again. Sometimes she succeeds and sometimes she doesn't, but that's okay. She is also sleeping all the way through the nights, unless, of course, we feel the need to pounce on her head or bark at nothing.
Thank you to all of you who have prayed for our strength. It's working, so please don't stop!
Penny and Patches
