Tashi and Tiara are our September 30, 2012 Pups of the Week
Most of the friends I have are ones I have known half my lifetime and Pocket has known her entire life. But each year brings the possibility, and then the reward, of new friends, and two new friends that have added pleasure to our lives, and the lives of the pups around us, are Tashi and Tiara (not to mention Angel Lovey at the Bridge.)
They don’t just make us laugh, or warm our hearts, but they, like saw many good friends, watch out for us. First, they are our little watch dogs. Whenever there is a food or treat recall, like the town barkers, they are the first to yelp, warning us of the danger, and giving us all the information we need to know. Then their Mom posts wonderful homemade recipes. I ask you, how could there be better friends, they warn you about bad food and tell you how to make good food? Who could ask for more?
Tashi and Tiara hit all the marks that you want from an online pup friend. There are scary moments where we pray for them, like when Tiara suddenly started losing fur on her legs (she is on the road to her full hairy glory.) There are adventure stories like when poor Tashifell out of a boat and had to be rescued ending up a soaked mess. They go to town barker mode when they learn a puppy Mom is sick, like when Blazer’s Mommy was in the hospital for four days. They show great sympathy for struggling pups posting reminders to click on the free kibble page. They make us laugh with stories about the mysterious murder of Tashi’s gator, and employee working pups like Pocket Dog Private Dog who proved that Tiara was the culprit and Foley Monster Attorney at Paw who got Tiara cleared of the charges. (And we earned kibbles from both ends on this.)
Also, not to be forgotten is their big sister Angel Lovey who wrote the most beautiful poem to her Dad from the Bridge. Usually, when we read something this well written, we delete it because we want to be the best writers, but this was so beautiful we left it alone.
Here it is, in the words of Angel Lovey:
“DADDY, I MAY BE AT THE BRIDGE BUT I'M REALLY STILL HERE.....
PLEASE DON'T MOURN FOR ME I'M STILL HERE, THOUGH YOU DON'T SEE. I'M RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE EACH NIGHT AND DAY AND WITH IN YOUR HEART I LONG TO STAY. MY BODY IS GONE BUT I'M ALWAYS NEAR, I'M EVERYTHING YOU FEEL, SEE OR HEAR. MY SPIRIT IS FREE, BUT I'LL NEVER DEPART AS LONG AS YOU KEEP ME IN YOUR HEART. I'LL NEVER WANDER OUT OF YOUR SIGHT, I'M THE BRIGHTEST STAR ON A SUMMER NIGHT. I'LL NEVER BE BEYOND YOUR REACH, I'M THE WARM MOIST SAND WHEN YOUR AT THE BEACH. I'M THE COLORFUL LEAVES WHEN FALL COMES AROUND AND THE PURE WHITE SNOW THAT BLANKETS THE GROUND, I'M THE BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS OF WHICH YOU'RE SO FOND OF. THE CLEAR WATER IN A QUIET POND, I'M THE FIRST BLOSSOM YOU'LL SEE IN THE SPRING. THE WARMEST RAIN DROPS APRIL WILL BRING, I'M THE FIRST RAY OF LIGHT WHEN THE SUN STARTS TO SHINE, AND YOU'LL SEE THAT THE FACE IN THE MOON IS MINE. YOU CAN TALK TO ME THROUGH THE LORD ABOVE, I'LL WHISPER MY ANSWER THROUGH THE LEAVES ON THE TREES, AND YOU'LL FEEL MY PRESENCE IN THE SOFT SUMMER BREEZE. I'M THE HOT SALTY TEARS THAT FLOW WHEN YOU WEEP, AND THE BEAUTIFUL DREAMS THAT COME WHILE YOU SLEEP. JUST LOOK FOR ME DADDY I'M EVERYPLACE..........”
What more can I say about this pack. Town barkers for dog and human emergencies, great story tellers, great dog friends, great writers. A pack truly deserving of recognition and we are so lucky that they are our friends.
