Thoughts on a Thursday in January

I was sitting by the heater this morning just a-thinkin' about LIFE. I do that sometimes - when Sunshine the Cat is not hogging the floor vent, that is. We have the best floor vent in the world! It is located in a low traffic spot IN THE KITCHEN! I mean, for a PUG the kitchen is like . . . VALHALLA or NIRVANA or HEAVEN! The best. Anyhow, we often fight over the spot because one side is against the shoji screen so it is sheltered and uber warm, and the other side is open to the room. The good thing about that side is the quick exit to grab a falling morsel.

So this morning I happened to snag the inside corner while Sunshine was still PICKING through her food. There I sorta lolled against the shoji screen (well, the cabinet below the screen) and let my mind wander.

Some things came up like -

  1. I'ma missing Stella Rose Long and her crew. I know how hard life has been for her mommy and daddy lately. That sure happens A LOT. But selfishly, I loved loved LOVED reading about their adventures and their daddy's progress and setbacks. I bask in the warmth of their family as all of the furless kids grow up. I mean, one look at Macey's smile can make my day. BUT I understand the need to pull back. I only hope that SR and her mommy know I am here 24/7 to listen, nod my noggin in sympathy, and express my deepest love. And when they return to Blogville, as I hope they do, I will be here to welcome them back with open arms.

  2. The Rainbow Bridge is too full right now so my FURIENDS need to stop crossing over for a while. I really really love my FURIENDS. And when Winston Wilbur crossed the bridge, well a piece of my heart went with him. I need time to rebuild my heart. So listen - right now - Sit! STAY!

  3. That even on the stormiest of days there is still a ray of sunshine poking through AT SOME POINT. I am going to look for that sunshine and quit dwelling on the rain.

  4. That said, I am happy CALIFORNIA is getting rain again. It makes everything so much happier in SPRING. It also means the strawberries will be abundant come MAY. My mouth is watering already.

Your Pals,

Thanks! After losing my puggle (Winston) over the weekend....I've quit crying long enough to read. And what do I see? You comment about the Rainbow Bridge being full. You somehow just gave ma a reason to smile.
