I have been truly blessed with so many great friends, both here on the immortal side of the River of Life, and, where many of you are reading this, on the mortal side, although I seldom single any out publicly because you all deserve your own special blog for your kindness towards me and if I can’t do them all, I don’t want to do just one.
But I do have to mention one dog, my brother from another litter, my bestest friend on either side of the Bridge, my loyal brother Leo. No matter where I have been, or what trouble I may have caused, Leo has always stood by me and never wanted anything more than friendship.
During my visits with my Mom in her dreams, she told me how sad she was without me, despite the very valiant efforts of Pocket and River. The worst part was, upon waking, Mommy forgot our talks. The vague bit of memory she had only made her sadder. She needed something to lift her spirits.
I knew just the thing, a necklace from Blue Laamb Designs that Mommy could wear near her heart and would remind her of me everyday. The problem was dogs don’t need money on your side of the River and have less of a need for it on my side, so I needed to find someone with money
I popped into Leo’s dreams and told him of my dilemma and as always he said he could solve my problem. The next day he told his Mom what I wanted to do and she said that she would contact the Laambies Mom to get the necklace and send her the money to cover the costs.
The Laambies Mom sent my Mommy the perfect necklace, with an angel wing, a pup, and a paw prints stamped heart. The card said simply “From Foley.” Oh Mommy was so happy. She cried when she saw it, very happy tears, and she put it on, and has worn it every day since.
I was so proud, but there was a tugging at my conscious. While I had set this plan in motion I needed to share the gratitude. So I went back down to Leo and asked him to check with his Mom to see if she would agree to get the credit she richly deserved. At first she refused, saying that the gift was really from me, but I kept bothering Leo, and he kept nagging his Mom, until she finally relented, which made me very happy, because now she can be recognized for being the wonderful person that she is (which we all knew anyway.)
So now I would like to publicly thank Leo, his Mom Eileen, the Laambies and thier Mom, Patricia Patterson, for helping me bring an everyday smile to my Mom’s face and for designing this wonderful necklace.
Thank you all
