Our Hearts Or Heavy Today

Today is a very sad day as we have received word that our blogging buddy Callie has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
In Memory of Callie The Basset Hound
12/1/2003 - 7/30/2010
Callie and her fur-sister Droopy where some of our first blogging buddies and we even exchanged a PawItFoward recently.  We got so many nice things from them and was so looking foward to visiting them next summer on our road trip in the house on wheels (which we will still do).  We will treasure these toys even more and think of our dear basset friend Callie everytime we play with them.

Callie has had bad sickies (cancer) and this morning her family posted she had lost her battle and she was running free at the Rainbow Bridge.  We know that they are having a rough time and their heart's are broke, so we would really appreciate it if you could send some drool and special words to them at their blog at Cheesehounds.

Even though we never got to meet Callie in person, her stories have touched our hearts and we will miss her sweet words of wisdom and that sweet smile that she has.  Callie, we know you were greeted with open paws to the Bridge and are now able to be pain free and that is what a sweet girl like you deserves.  But it sure doesn't make it any easier and I know how much Droopy, Mommy and Daddy are hurting today.  We just wish we were closer to them so we could sit, hug and talk wonderful stories about you today.

Droopy and Callie's Family, I wish there was something I could do or say that would make today better for you.  I just want you to know how much you are in my hearts today and how bad my heart aches for you.  It has not been that long since we lost our Tabby girl so I know Callie has a great friend at the Bridge and I am sure they are swaping slobber, but it sure doesn't make it any easier.  Please give Droopy some extra love today because I am sure she is missing her best buddy.

We will look for the new bright star in the sky tonight, and say a prayer for you because we know Callie is shining down on you and your family.

Lots of drool, sniffs and tears

  1. Dear HoundDog Family

    Thank you so much for your wonderful and touching post about our Callie. We have had so many bloggie friends drop by with a kind word or twenty! Your kinds words mean so much to us.

    Lots of slobber,
    Droopy, Momma and Dad (and Callie)
