Two years ago today Twitterverse had to say temporary goodbye to a great pal @PepiSmartDog. Pepi was sick and just couldn't get better, his crossing was unexpected and very shocking. M and I and lots of our pals shed buckets of tears that day in sadness.
But, you see, there was a reason for this unexpected crossing - our dear Pepi and his ooman (Michele) have very important work to do. Pepi (with the help of his mom) has become the Ambassador of OTRB. He escorts all our Twitter pals across that bridge when the time comes. He and his large crew of OTRB pals make sure each new arrival makes the crossing in his pram, dashes him off to @RudyCKat's spa where the arrival is made whole and bootiful again, and coordinates with the other crew members to get the welcome banquet underway.
Meanwhile Michele is busy back here with comforting the humans of the pal who has crossed and coordinates behind the scenes with the OTRB crew to see to every detail. She many times is up all night because of her important work with OTRB too.
It is thru Pepi and Michele that we have learned the OTRB is a happy place, anipals are made whole again, are without pain, and run free in the many meadows there.
We love you Pepi and Michele and appreciate all the work you do to make the OTRB a less feared place. While we dearly miss Pepi here on Twitterville, he has a very important job now and is needed there.
Michele has spent days creating a new web site for Pepi's blog and also the OTRB blog - all rolled into one. She did a beautiful 2-year anniversary tribute to Pepi at: http://pepismartdog.com/rainbowbridge/ Please go over and read her wonderful and leave a comment. Today is a very tough day for her and she will appreciate the comforting words.
Now on a lighter note, my flaky ooman, had (under my direction, of course) already published our first tribute blog to Pepi this morning. Then we wanted to add Michele's blog link. In doing so, she accidentially deleted the first post after connecting to the blog hop too. he he - I'm laughing at her now, but I was hissing at her earlier. This same flaky ooman has created her own personal blog: "Shuffling Along With Parkinson's Disease." If you are interested in following her personal bloggy, it's at: http://shufflingAlongWithPD.blogspot.com/
I'm joining @CokieTheCat's blog hop to honor Pepi and Michele. You can join too.
