Thinking of you once again today.
I know you are looking over all of us and see all of the “happenings” that have been going on around here. First off, Nugget is such a mess. She has such a hard time controlling her anxiety that she has had to go back and forth to the vet to have shots and dips for her red mange. Luckily I catch the spots early enough that she doesn’t have to suffer through lengthy treatments. She also has what is known as “food aggression” and gets very mean when it is time to prepare/serve dinner. We have a routine for all five dogs that helps us to avoid any mishaps as a result but, the other day, Daddy didn’t follow the rule and Nugget got bit by your younger Brofur Braun. She was off to the vet again for stitches in her nose. We are hoping that the love and support we show her on a daily basis will help her to overcome much of this.
Your sisfur Austin is getting up there in age and is really starting to show the signs. I find myself spending extra time with her giving lots of love & kisses & cuddles because I know the day will come (sooner than any of us would like) when she will join you over Rainbow Bridge and the two of you can play together like you used to. She takes arthritis medicine and has a hard time getting moving in the mornings compared to her younger self but she still has these bouts of energy that hit her and she is running like a pup & playing with all the other dogs.
Braun is still the anti-social dog he has been since he was a baby. He only loves me and I am ok with that. He plays either by himself or with me and when he wants to cuddle he wants all the other dogs off the bed. His personality is so funny and different than any other dog I have ever known.
Ginger is doing so much better with her fears. You know the abuse she suffered before coming home with us and it has literally been years for her to finally break through and we can truly see how comfortable and safe she feels in our home now. She even stays in the living room when it is time to break out presents, etc. Remember she used to run into the back room and hide on the other side of the bed anytime anything new was in the house. Love has truly brought her out of her shell.
Tina stole dad’s heart. She sticks to him like glue. When daddy gets up in the mornings before work she is the only dog in the room that has to go with him. If you do not let her out with her daddy she will sit in there and bark until you do. All the others jump on the bed and go back to sleep with me. Tina also LOVES to crawl in our bed after we fall asleep even though she just got this brand new AWESOME new pet bed a few weeks ago. She is so funny when she jumps up she immediately “hunkers down” so no one sees her and then slowly crawls her way up the bottom of the bed, under the covers, until she is right beside her daddy. She is a funny little furbutt!
I guess you saw Austin spill my dinner last night huh? I immediately though of you when that happened. I will never forget the many things you would spill when I had them in places I was sure you would never reach. Somehow it was always funny because the look on your face was priceless. Funniest moment ever was when you stole that turkey leg out of the trash and ran down the hall like there was no tomorrow trying to get to your room before the dogs realized what you had. You made me laugh so much.
I miss you and love you always and forever. I am sure you have noticed I have not been able to get another cat yet. It still hurts too much. This November will be three years but it still feels like yesterday. *tears*

Today is another Birthday where I do not get to hold you or play with you. I only get to cry for you. Telling you I miss you so very much seems pointless as you already know...you listen to me over Rainbow Bridge. It is just damned hard on days like today because I start to reflect back on when I first got you...valentine's day, when you first meowed, when you made the decision for me that my pillow was "our pillow", your 1st/2nd/3rd/4th/5th/6th Birthday and all others that followed.
We have had some interesting things going on around the Smith house lately and sure wish you could be there to share them. Your human sister has her very first boyfriend and Daddy isn't too happy about that. Your human brother is going into the Marines in August & I sure wish you were here to see him off.
Great...now I am crying again. I am sorry that all I can give you now for your Birthday are tears. But, they are tears of love. You are missed so very much!
Happy Birthday by little Grouchy Butt!!

Hey Sweet Boy! I am sure missing you right now! Well, I miss you every day but this last week has been hard because (1) we have a new family member you never got to meet and (2) this is your favorite time of year. You used to LOVE to run and play in the back yard with the dogs when it was like this. You were so darned frisky! I still recall all our friends and some neighbors being absolutely amazed that you would run out and play in the yard with the dogs. Little did they know you were a dog in a cat's body!
Never forget me as I will never forget you. I still get tears when I come on here and I still get tears when I go in the spare room which used to be your room. You loved having an entire room to yourself so the dogs woulnd't bother you when you weren't in the mood.
I love you Groucho!
