Pocket Dog September 4, 2007 - August 13, 2021

"Although she is little she is mighty."
William Shakespeare

"We held each other dear
Every night, thru every fear
As bombs rocked so near
We lay face to face
Our breath a calming wind
Beating hearts as one
'Til the morning sun blessed us
With another precious day
And when I'm dust and done
We will laugh and run
Life's mysteries will clear
All the truth all the love
That was there all along
The peace so strong
We always belonged
For each other"
Nils Lofgren

"And I'm leaving my family, I'm leaving all my friends
My body's at home, but my heart's in the wind
Where the clouds are like headlines upon a new front-page sky
And shiver me timbers, 'cause I'm a-sailing away "
Tom Waits


I'll be looking for company
Look and listen
Through the years
Someday you may hear me
Still crying for company"
Rickie Lee Jones

And little people know when little people fight
We may look easy pickings but we've got some bite
So never kick a dog because she's just a pup
We'll fight like twenty armies and we won't give up
So you'd better run for cover when the pup grows up"
Les Miserables


  1. I'm so, so sorry. Big healing hugs. They embed themselves into our hearts and remain there forever. ♥

  2. Oh that has the tears flowing here and I'm so, so sorry to hear about dear Pocket. Love and hugs from all of us.

  3. Oh, we are so very sad. We know that Little Pocket put up the good fight and you did all you could for her. We are sure that Foley Monster and all the rest of the Angels were there at the gate to greet their newest arrival. Soft woos and gentle hugs to River, Mom and Dad. Our hearts ache for you.

    Hugs and Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber, and Mom too

  4. Lots of tears here. I know little Pocket put up a fight to stay with you but Angel Foley was calling and she had to answer her sister. I lost my Annie just 10 days ago and I bet she was there waiting at the Bridge along with Amber to help Foley and all our fur friends already there escort Pocket to her new home. She will be forever loved and always in your heart and in the hearts of all who knew her. I'm so sorry for your loss. Hugs to both of you and a big hug for River.

  5. Oh noes. I've been thinkin' abouts you guys all day, and sendin' lots of AireZens ~ I am so, so sorry. Pocket put up a valiant fight, butts she is in no more pain, and is with her Sister probably gettin' in all kinds of troubles 😉
    Soon the tears will be replaced with lots of smiles of all the amazin' memories ~ I am sendin' lots of {{{hugs}}} and slobbery kisses your way. if you needs some margaritas, you knows who to call.....
    Ruby ♥

  38. I am so very sorry about your... hmmm was he a puppy? He kinda looks like one, and oh so cuddly! I'm sending puppy hugs to you! I've really only had labs. Mostly black, but Charlie (dog I have now) he's brown & black and oh so cuddly. He won't come up on the bed unless you pat the bed and he's like a rabbit one big hop & watch out for your face cuz one big lick is coming. We got him from a dog pound by my daughter's house because it was the cheapest there. I fought over Charlie it was between me and a policeman that found him, but I wanted him so bad and when I came the second day we had to bid on him, but when I walked in with my daughter and my cane he came over gave me a hug and said he's yours. I can wait! I gave him a big hug back & a peck on the cheek and Charlie just tried to get in my lap, but he was too big, but I got a sloppy kiss anyway! Hugs to you, but not to worry Your doggy will be just fine in rainbow heaven. Sending a big hug to you!!!
