My job here is done

Hi pals, Puff Darby here.

As many of my pals know, I was real sad when my fursister Coco Rose, left and went to the Rainbow Bridge.  Even though Coco was a bossy pup, and sometimes yapped in my face, I adored her and followed her around when we were outside, going on another adventure together.  To help me get out of my depression, the humans brought home a tiny Shih Tzu puppy mamed Mei-Ling.  After the first week of trying to avoid her, I could see that she needed me, as much as I needed Coco.

I made it my mission to show her what she could, and couldn't do around the house.  This new little fursister heard momma telling me that it would be nice if I would share my small stash of stuffies with her, so I did.  Mei-Ling has been here for over over year, and I feel my job as her personal teacher, has come to an end.

Tomorrow, I am going on an adventure that Mei-Ling will not be invited to go on.  I have tried my hardest to ignore Coco calling me, but, I can not ignore it any longer.  I will be departing this world at approximately 8:30AM.  I have packed some of my favorite stuffies to take with me, verified I have my one way ticket, and am ready to go.  Momma understands and although she will be very sad without me, it will be nice to be healthy and able to run and walk again.

The humans have been looking for months to find Mei-Ling a younger companion, as my body had worn down to the point where I could barely walk, yet alone play with Mei-Ling.   It just so happened that the breeder the humans got Mei-Ling from, currently has a chocolate Shih Tzu puppy, so momma and daddy are hoping they will be able to adopt her.  If they are successful, Yi-Tan, will join Mei-Ling around September 30th (notice momma is continuing  on with the Chinese names).  I forgot to mention that Yi-Tan is Mei-Ling's half sister.  Same daddy, but a different mother.

Anyhoodle, I would like to thank each and everyone of you for being my friend.  Now that Coco and I will be up in heaven together, we are going to find out what the rules are regarding PARTYING.  Yup, we are hoping to throw the biggest, and best party in the clouds.

    Coco Rose mom, Marilyn, just posted on her blog, that they are going to take Puffy to be put to sleep tomorrow morning. She said he can barely walk anymore. It's so hard when our dogs get older. — feeling sad.

  22. Crikey Puffy ...... I've only just heard about the journey you have undertaken, mate. What will we all do down here without you. We just kinda always liked to know that you were there. I'll miss you, mate but I bet Coco Rose has a great big smile on her face. The two of you together again. How good is that?? I'll keep an eye on those clouds. Bet they do some fast moving when your parties are in progress. My love and hugs to your family. They are sure goin' to miss you ...

  24. I'm posting a link to a photo of Puffy that Lulu made and put in a post on her FB... thought you might want it. Her caption read...."Another precious pup journeys to the Rainbow Bridge. Rest in peace Puffy."
    Link to Puffy's photo here... Puffy Photo

  25. Pals, Thank you all for your warm and caring comments. I thought I was prepared for Puffy's passing, but in truth, one is never prepared. I suspect he is running behind Coco right now asking her if she is sure whatever it is that she wants him to do won't get him in trouble - LOL.
