Saying Goodbye is Hard - Zoey Martinez

Zoey in her new RIDE
Today I am very very sad . My dear dear FURiend Zoey has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. She joins her love YODA as well as too-many-to-name FURiends. I have known ZOEY (and her daughter Phoebe) my whole life. My Mommy #2 met her Mommy via Blogville and it was instant FRIENDSHIP. We saw them at Pug Sunday in San Francisco's Alta Park, we saw them at Pug-o-ween, and we went to Bark in the Park with them too. Zoey was a FREE SPIRIT and I loved just spending time with her, soaking up her pearls of wisdom. In recent times, she had some health issues so her Mommy did not bring her out so much. Nonetheless, ZOEY will always have a very special place in my heart.

To honor Zoey, I am posting photos from her 10th BARKDAY some years back. It was great fun and all of my favorite PUG PEEPS were there. Some I met for the first time and all have become very very good FURiends of mine.

Run free sweet Zoey. You will forever bring a smile to my face with I think of you.

I can't get this photo to rotate. But since the theme was Mad Tea
Party from Alice in Wonderland, it kinds is fitting

As you can see, the decorations totally ROCKED. So did the food. And the party was at this really cool park in Niles (outside of Fremont) where the annual Dog Show is held. We have gone to the Dog Show (which is less about showing and more about being there and enjoying the activities) a couple of times with the Martinez grumble. It is a great fun time.

Zoey's Mommy, Susie, thought of everything. She even had a cartoonist to do portraits of all attendees. I still have mine hanging on my Mommy #2's wall. I think it really captured me.

The Birthday Girl Zoey

I cannot find a photo of my portrait. My bad. Trust me - it is CUTE!!!! This was wayyyyyy before Molly so she was not in attendance.

Dear Noodles,

We mourn with you the loss of another free puggie spirit, but know that across the Rainbow Bridge Zoey will be waiting for all who love her. Stay joyous and free in her memory.
