Thank you my friends... Meet my new dog Mac

Wednesday, January 02, 2008

Hello my friends. I don't know how to thank you enough for all your kind words. You truly have been great. We cried buckets when our lovely Beanzie passed on. Her collar hangs in the kitchen to remind us of the sweet little dog who loved us unconditionally. She will always have a special place in our hearts.

We heard through a good friend of ours about a family who were moving house and couldn't take their dog with them. We went up to meet both the family and their dog. His name was Mac. We fell in love with him straight away and took him home with us three days later.

So now we have Mac. He's two years old. He is SO friendly and we love him to bits. He's house trained and doesn't chew our shoes! He needs walking every day and has walked the legs off of us since we got him. He also swims like a fish! With the beach being only five minutes walk from our house he has found a home from home.

Mac has helped us cope with the passing of Beanzie. I know that somewhere up there in Doggie Heaven our Beanzie is looking down, playing with her bones, digging big holes and burying Our Lords sandals. She is in a better place now.

So my friends we had a lovely Christmas together as a family and a lovely New Year with a new member to our family. I hope that your New Year is as promising as I hope ours will be.

Thank you all for being there for me.

Hugs - Polly xx

    Look at that gorgeous, soulful face! I am in love with Mac, just from that picture!...I am so glad you found each other. I agree with the sparker who said, that she bets your Beanzie had a hand in bringing you together. Thats what they do, you know. They stay involved in your affairs, from up in Heaven, and they Help. ..and Dogs are such physical creatures, you know - they Hate it, when their bodies fail them, and they are unable to romp and play in their old, sick bodies. They are so relieved to be in Spirit form, and youthful again.
    and...I hope u believe this, all of your beloved pets that have passed on, will be reunited with you in Heaven when you arrive...Give Mac a great big hug and a kiss from me - wish I could do it myself, hon.

    His eyes tell it all...what a warm, sensitive dog!!!! I am so glad for you to have Mac.

    My dog, Fruffy, (can you believe the name? My husband BIll picked it out!) was the kindest, dearest soul who passed a number of years back. There were tears galore then, too.

    Years later, a stray cat walked into our house (I think my son had the sliding glass door open and he came in that way) and he has been with us now for 6 years. The vet thinks he is 7 or 8 years old. He does not have Fruffy's temperament, but I love him just the same for it.

    So, in essence, I am very happy for you to have him in your home and heart! :)

    Well you made it through a second Christmas with Mac. I bet he probably has wormed his way into everyone's heart. Have a great New Year for 2009. Hugs from foggy California. ~ Lin

    Look at his intellegent eyes! What a handsome beast he is. A bit energetic i would g uess .....Great for you.

    I ended up with a Gerbil over christmas. My father gave it to my son in law for a christmas present for his fourth grade class. but theyre not allowed pets in the school where Paul teaches. And then he didn/t want a rodent in the house either. So who do you think took it home? Her name is Little Paula, after my son in law...........

    OH Polly im so happy for you and the family. There is nothing like a lively loving pup is there? all my best sallyanne

    M'dear friend Polly, I believe everything happens for a reason and Mac was mean't to be a part of your family. I'd like to think Beanzie had a hand in your wonderful gain. Enjoy your wonderful [not replacement] addition. Hugs, Keke

    Mac is beautiful. What a lucky dog to find people who love him and live near a beach! The Bible mentions that the hounds of heaven will nip your feet, so I believe there are dogs in heaven, horses too!

    God bless you and give you a wonderful, prosperous, healthy New Year.
