Thinking and Thanking Thursday


Today we wanted to take some time to let Da Boys, Arty and Jakey, and their Mama and Daddy know that we are thinking about them.  Having lost three of our Angels in two years, we can't even begin to imagine how difficult it must be to have to bid farewell-til-we-meet-again to both Dory and Bilbo in such a short time.


Mom says that Bilbo and Phantom had a lot in common. Both senior boys battling health issues but remaining strong and persevering for a long time.  Both loving their pack and receiving the best of care and love from their families.

Arty, Jakey, Mama, and Daddy - we send you our heartfelt sorrow for your loss along with lots of hugs and good thoughts.  We hope you don't mind, but we "borrowed" a few pics of Bilbo to share with our readers.



One of our favorite shots of spunky Bilbo - look at the air he could get!!!  We bet you are leaping to new heights with all the Angels across the Rainbow Bridge.


The very wise elder member of the pack, but oh so cute and adorable!


Angel Bilbo - we will miss your quiet presence on your blog, but we know you will be there with your family in their hearts forever.

As for the thanking part of our title, we want to thank Mama and Daddy for always being there for Bilbo and giving him such a wonderful loving home.

Oh Lightning and Misty...what a beautiful heartfelt post to Bilbo and his family. We agree with each word you wrote.
We met Dory and Bilbo in 2009 and have so many found memories of them and how very much they welcomed Jakey and Arty when the joined the pack.
One thing for sure Bilbo lived in a house full of love every moment of every year.
Hugs madi and mom your bfff

You wrote the perfect tribute. I adore that first photo of an airborne Bilbo. It made me smile despite the huge lump in my throat. I cannot imagine how the remaining pack is managing...

It breaks our heart to know he is gone and his mom and dad are hurting. We just got our internet installed at the new house yesterday.
Hope your heat wave is cooling off and you are getting time outside.
