I have enjoyed this week very much. While there have been pups and Moms in need of prayer nothing has happened that has made our eyes wet or was too difficult to read.
like to recognize a special dog each week and usually it is because
they are ill or have gone to the Bridge. But this week there is no one
to recognize. Which really just thrills me and leaves me with one small
problem. I don’t have anyone to write about as pup of the week. And I am
happy about this, really, but I sit here, moving my paws over the
keyboard, having to write my Sunday blog.
are so many dogs with great parents who do transports, rescues,
fostering, or alert us about what we need to know. But we have
recognized them all recently and don’t want to favor one over the
then it hit me. It was Pocket smacking me upside the head. She
whispered in my ear. I said I thought that was a wonderful but we
usually recognize Tanner Brigade members and despite several requests to
join this pup has made his home happily at DS. Then Pocket reminded me
that everyone on the Tanner Brigade loves this dog. At first I was
stunned that Pocket was right twice in the same day then I decided to do
as she said.
dog is what everyone would call their first friend, because I think, if
you asked a random dog who was their first friend in social networking
they would name him. This dog is someone who, like I, is always ready to
comfort a parent who has lost a pup, and to do something to honor the
pup. He does it through pictures while I do it through words.
course you all know by now, because you are very smart, and his picture
is at the top of the blog, and his name on the blog title, that I am
talking about Tommy Tunes.
don’t often salute friends simply for being wonderful. But today we do
that for Tommy. No one makes us smile as regularly as he does. His
videos are absolutely brilliant. While our parents all put words in our
mouths he lets us see words come out of our mouths.
his artwork is breathtaking. Everyone looks forward to his weekly blogs
where he takes our mundane pictures and turns them into works of art.
You can see this week’s here. http://www.doggyspace.com/journal/88033 We
have one that he did of Pocket and I over our TV. If parents put
something over the TV that means they must love it because that’s where
their eyes go. And Tommy and his Dad sent it to us, at great expense to
them, for no reason outside of that they are perfect.
Also, after our friend Gina passed, Tommy and his Dad opened up his heart and home to Freddie Girl giving her a great new life.
is a great friend in every meaning of the word. He is understanding,
kind, compassionate, empathic, funny, loyal, everyone’s best friend. So,
after a good week with no one heading to the Bridge it is time to
recognize one of the best of us.
Thank you Tommy for doing everything you do for everyone..
