Another dear pal crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Saturday. Our good pal from Twitter, @SmokeyPoodle. Smokey had just celebrated his 14th birthday a few weeks ago. I'm so happy we had his wonderful 14th birthday celebration to remember how happy he and his brother, @OdyMaltese, were that day. Smokey's health had been failing for a few months, but on the weekend he was having great trouble breathing. His human took Smokey to the vet on Saturday, and the vet confirmed that Smokey was also in pain. His human didn't want Smokey to suffer, so he helped him cross the bridge that day. M always says that helping your dear companion (beloved pet) cross the bridge is the kindest, most wonderful act of love that you can give. You are sacrificing your own needs and wants and instead doing what is best for the animal.
Smokey's brother has a bloggy - please drop by there and pay your respects. http://smokeyandody.blogspot.com/ Ody misses his brother as much as his dad misses Smokey. Ody and his dad need lots of hugs, prayers, and kind words right now because they both miss Smokey so much.
Also, Smokey and his dad started a blog of Las Vegas Hamburger Reviews. I don't live in Las Vegas, but M still enjoys following the blog in case we visit there. And sometimes he posts reviews on national chains that sell burgers - sometimes those are in our city. Please consider following that too. Ody said he and his dad will keep it up after a couple of weeks rest. http://twodogseating.blogspot.com/
Your ooman and Ody miss you dearly Smokey, but we'll take good care of them for you. We all love you too and will miss you. Until we meed again some day, continue to have fun chasing all the butterflies cuz I hear from @PepiSmartDog that you feel so good now that you are acting like a puppy again.
M wants to give you one final SMOOCH on the head.
