Mostly Wordless Wednesday

Storytime with the kids.

Soft woos from the OP Pack to the family of our furiend Joe Stains - sadly Joey crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday, but we are sure there is a big celebration there now with the arrival of the One and Only Joe Stains. Please stop by his blog and leave some kind words for his brother Tanner and family.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Pee Ess: With the start of summer and the kiddos out of school, Mom will have less time to help us with blogging. We are going to try our best to keep up with everyone.

I think Ciara found bliss! Love the photo! Your grandkiddies are just adorable, and could Ciara look any more content and cozy?!

We pawed some words of love and support for Joe Stain's family, and for his BFF Ike. So sad.

I didn't know Joe Stains but everything that I've been reading today makes me wish that I'd known him before he crossed. Beautiful tribute.

Do the grand-bipeds read to Ciara? Maybe Ciara can babysit while you blog this summer :)

So many beautiful tributes..
he was so loved.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Don't pass up time with the little bipeds...they grow up too quickly to miss a moment! Visit us as you can and know we smile thinking of you all romping and enjoying the freedom of a child's summer!

ForPetsSake said...

I'm sorry to hear about a loss in this community - I didn't know Joe, but I'm sure there is much rejoicing beyond the Bridge.
Like the White Dog said, there's too few moments in childhood to not try and catch them all. We understand how summer vacations are.
P.S. - those are some strong genetics at work there!

Sally said...

Very comfortable on the sofa.

Nice woooh

Bobby said...

What a great photo, you will be busy with school holidays, enjoy they soon grow up.
We are sorry about Joe.
