Tearful Thursday

We have been so far behind with blogging. There are many exciting stories we want to tell you, friends, but there's just so little time. I do manage to read your blogs so I could keep my doggies updated with your adventures. It makes me sad, though, not to be able to leave comments . Life is short, we'll never know the last time we can say hello and make our friends feel how much they are cherished. This was my thought when I chided myself yesterday. Then I got text message from a number I did not recognize ( I am using a new phone). It said: _____, Bogart died!

I froze. For a moment, I could not remember if Bogart was a person or a friend's pet. Then it hit me, Oh no! I called up the number, certain it was Keeper Lui.

Bogart lived a good nine years here on earth. He, his brother Sweepy, popsy Sumo, and Keeper Lui are our virtual friends through blogging. As the initial shock subsides, I now feel a pang of sadness in my heart. I can only imagine what Keeper Lui feels, and the rest of the residents of Heaven Street where they live ( the other keepers, Sweepy, Sumo, Mr. Leach, Mr. Froggy, Yvonne and the rest of the trees, flowers, plants, and even the neighbor's dog). My own doggies havent learned of this sad news yet.

In Heaven they came to know our scents too.
These flowers like my scent and I like theirs too.
They smell like they lived for a long time.
They bloom, fade and repeat the same for so long.
- From Bogart's Blog

You too will live for a long time in our hearts, Bogart. Smell the flowers for me in Heaven above.


  1. Oh, God bless Bogart. So young too. There's a new star in heaven tonight...

    We still love you Secretary - whether you comment or not.

    BIG hugs,

  2. OMD!
    I am so sorry to know about Bogart!
    Thanks for letting us know.
    Kisses and hugs

  3. Thank you Happy, DrGeoff, Trudis and everypaw. We're coping well and the changes in our house Heaven made us realized that Bogart's passing left us wonderful gifts that only loving dogs like him can do...

    Thanks and I pray everybody at Greenwoods is safe and healthy!

    Keeper Lui
