A kind Sparkie friend alerted me to this wonderful news!!

Yes, that's Augie (more formally, "August") in the middle, surrounded by her siblings!




So glad she had a party and cake to celebrate her big day.

How I wish dear Charlie could have stayed with us longer than his 14.5 years.

How I hope beloved Henry is immortal!!

The only tough thing about loving a dog is that they don't live nearly long enough.

But: our doggies do live on in our hearts.

And all my previous dogs are up there advocating for me in Heaven, I'm sure of it -- where I just MIGHT get admittance if the authorities believe I'm as utterly perfect as my dogs thought I was.

Or in the alternative, that it simply can't be Heaven for those deserving doggies if I'm not there to join them: in due course.

And yes: that's the more persuasive argument!!
