Aquajane, Good luck with your decision to add a pup to your home. I've been through what you're going through, and understand completely. Everyone is different as far as what their next steps are.

The good news is that our wonderful pets are always in our hearts (and they are there in photos, and sometimes videos), giving us the chance to continue to smile and laugh with them.

Have a great week!


Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

((((Jane))))!!!! I am so glad you are here. I am also glad that you know that you need another pup. that is exactly what Cleo would want. And you are right, how great it would be for Cleo to be there to train!

I hope that no matter what kind of pup you get, you will stay here with us and play. We miss you very much. I feel like contact with you gives me really nice memories of cleo. We miss her too.

I know you are still looking for her. A new pup won't take all that away, but it will be a good source of smiles.

Hi Jane,

It's so nice to hear from you. We do miss you. I'm glad to hear that you are looking for another exercise companion. What kind of dog do you think you want? Another poodle? They are such lovers.

Please, don't be a stranger. Talk to you soon.

God's Speed,
Deb & Boo

Thank you all so much. I've been watching the poodle talk thread and hadn't checked the main threads for this. Oops.

I am still expecting to see Cleo when I get up, or go to bed, or when my eyes just need a break from the screen. Today, I picked up some screws at the Home Depot and almost walked around the lake at Cleo's favorite park. But the cold wind had picked up and the sun was getting low, so home I went, only to visit with a neighbor and toss chewtoys for her big yellow lab (whom Cleo always barked at or marked that yard or simply refused to be intimidated by).

Anyway, while it hasn't been long, I've also started looking for another dog to exercise with. I really don't think Cleo would mind, just sit on her couch and observe, with a warning bark as necessary. She did a good job teaching Chloe how to be a house dog. Too bad the new dog won't have the benefit of her experience....

Jane.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

So sorry Jane for your loss. I know how badly you must feel right now as I've lost a poodle to death as well and it's just heart wrenching. *hugs* from myself and my 3 little ones as well.

Mary said " Isn't it funny that we have spoken in the voice of our poodles but not with our personality so much, but our Poodles? I feel that I know all of our precious poodles here just as well as I know my own."

It comes from that place of unconditional love we have with our pups. It is is much easier to trust it from them than from humans. I love when Maggie writes b/c like all dogs she lives in the NOW, not yesterday or tomorrow, but today. I am striving to be more like her. emoticon

Our poodles are a loving, intelligent, super bunch of wisdom keepers.

Oh that is so beautiful. The Poodle Adventures! Cleo loved her adventures. I shall miss her sage advice. Isn't it funny that we have spoken in the voice of our poodles but not with our personality so much, but our Poodles? I feel that I know all of our precious poodles here just as well as I know my own.

I agree Jane. Your Cleo blessed us so much! I shall never ever forget her.

My prayers are with you.

Our team lost one of its members yesterday. Cleo, AquaJane's pretty poodle girl, passed away.

****

A Tribute to Cleo

Our Cleopatra, Queen of the Couch has left us.
She waits at the Rainbow Bridge for those she loves.
We loved her tales of antics, her little ones,
Of pee mail, toads, and rolls in smelly things.
She loved her treats – turkey (especially turkey), greenies,
Hidden cherry tomatoes, apples, bones and more.
We know she was a wonderful mom to Elvis and the rest.
She told us of the times she took care of her human, Jane.
And the times she got petted and snuggles.
Her nesting blankets and pillows were loved.
Our Cleo did not like water, teeth cleaning, or mean big dogs.
But she loved her long apricot hair and long brush outs from Mom.
She told us about walks in the park, and smelling flowers,
of chasing squirrels, café tables at the mall, and
Watching the annual Puppy Bowl on TV.
We shall miss our dear Cleo.
She was a wonderful poodle with a loving spirit;
Always quick with a prayer and tail wag.
We will miss you Cleo. Rest well,
Until we meet again.
*****

Jane, we love you and please know how much we care. We hope you will come and visit whenever you feel able. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

Blessings
Sue and Maggie
and all your poodle friends and humans here,
