|My G'day Mates from Down Under|
Again a tragedy has happened that altered my planned post for today. You see, on Friday, two very special FURiends of mine who I never met in the fur BUT felt as if I had, crossed over the Bridge quite unexpectedly. Pictured above are Opaka and her brother Dax. They hail from DOWN UNDER also known as Australia. They were on vacation with their awesome 'rents when Opaka was attacked by a brown snake and Dax jumped in to save her. He actually took the brunt of the attack.
Just so you know, this is a link for information about the brown snake from Australia -
It is a dangerous snake and one that kills more humans than any other snake in Australia. Since we are talking small dogs, it most likely mistook them for food. Anyhow, both were rushed to the emergency clinic, given a couple doses of anti-venom and put on life support. They didn't make it despite a deluge of prayers, Juju, etc from all over the WORLD!
I cannot begin to express my sadness over this whole turn of events. First of all, I did my super duperous JUJU dance and it FAILED! Second of all, two of my dearest Blogville furiends are gone, poof, just like that. It really put a damper on my holiday spirit.
Please hug your HUMANS tonight, tomorrow and every night because LIFE is too short and too unpredictable to let the opportunity pass you by to say I LOVE YOU.
And give a little shout out to Dax and Opaka as they join their sibling Kai who preceded them in crossing the bridge.
|RIP my FURiends|
PeeEss - I also lost a KITTY FURiend over the weekend. Kizzy is the sister to Winston Wilber and Sam "The Boss" Cooper up in Canada. Kizzy got sick suddenly (also on FRIDAY) and went over the bridge the following morning. I will miss Kizzy. For a cat she was pretty sweet and stately.
