Sad News and Not Much Else

Miss Sophie's pancake brother, Graham, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. He was not with Miss Sophie for long, but I think she liked him and he was a grand chap. He will be missed.


We are doing a lot of this...





And this...





Mango Man! Oh yeah!

The Rainbow Bridge calls our furends at all times of the year, butt this seems the most difficult season to have it happen to one we care for. I am most sorry for those left behind. I hope that the good memories will be talked and thought of. They help to ease the mind.

Mack said...

We heard about Graham and mom got all leaky eyed. Sometimes life can be so hard. But Graham was a great guy and was probably the happiest he ever was living with Sophie. Run free big guy.

BRUTUS said...

Awww... Come on guys, cheer up! I'm sure Sophie misses Graham, but we all know he's romping & frolicking without pain or fear now. Hey, maybe he'll even get to ride Santa Paws or something :)

Frenchie Kisses-

I am so sorry to hear about Graham. My thoughts and prayers are with all family and friends as they will certainly miss him a lot. Know that some day you will see him and forever be free to run and play all day together. Your memories will keep you company until then.

We're sad for Graham's momma too, but happy that Graham isn't isn't suffering anymore.

There has been so much sadness lately. #1 just got back from a ceremony to say farewell to a friend, a grand old man who "crossed" earlier this week.

Samantha said...

So sorry to hear about Graham - we will go over there - thank you for telling us. I hope you guys can cheer up during these supposedly cheerful holidays, but know how it can get. Our hoomans get furry busy which is a bummer, cause they leave us out from some of the fun stuff. I begged a bit this am from dad, who's always good for my "poor me" look and snagged a piece of his toast with pnut butter. I'm still trying to get the sticky stuff off the roof of my mouth. Mom says "BAD DAD!!!"
Hugs xo

Reilly and Bree said...

It's always sad to lose a friend. We didn't know Graham but we did stop by after reading about him on Khyra's blog yesterday. Was it only yesterday? So many furries crossing lately!

Kari in WeHo said...

you both look very thoughtful. Graham got to know some real love in the end

Sophie Brador said...

Thanks Mango Man! He was a pancake and shhhhh. Don't tell everyone, but I did love his flatness. He was great to stand under too on a rainy day. I miss him, but I think mom misses him more. She's just leaking all the time and forcing me to snuggle, which is getting a bit older, but I do what I can.

You look hot when you are being sad. I would like to sneak up and smooch your smoocher. Don't tell Stains.

Very sad about the flat boy. But he is racing around the bridge now. Just those left behind are sad.
Don't be too sad for too long guys, Graham wouldn't want that. We will do zoomies in his honor, even though we know he can zoom the fastest!!

I had heard about Graham. It is sad but if you think about it we know how happy he was the last few weeks. He was loved so much. He had a fur buddy. Now he is running
free and he's not in pain. We should be glad for him and sad for those he left behind.
Now another note. I hope you guys have a very good week-end!!!
It is suppose to be cold but dry.
No rain!!!
Big big hugs, Bambi and Fern

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Honestly, Mango...with all your meditation do you have an answer as to why bad things happen to good young doggies like Graham? It's not fair...we're just starin' at our walls con ti plate ing....but we're no nearer to an answer than when we started...

Um...why did you remove the pic of you wearin' the tree skirt from you header? Havin' some concerns 'bout your masculinity? I thought you were over that from the wearin' of the kilties last year....

We watched the video of your mom makin' Pee wee jump over the snow hump...okaaaaaay...she makes him jump in the box and over the hump...is she teachin' him a class on prepostions? You know...about, above, across, after, against, along, among, around,at...etc etc...(that's one of Mumsie's rare talents..she knows the 48 prepostions by heart and can say the Pledge of A LEGE ANTS in French...she had french class first period...)

I dunno...I think all the old hens have gone dotty....

Kisses...Lacie

River said...

Graham was a handsome boy. It's just too bad that he had so little time with Miss Sophie.

love & wags,
River

Rudy said...

We get sad, too, when we hear of other doggies crossing over.. Mom knows it'll happen again someday but it's never easy when it finally does.

I would listen to Brutus. He made a really excellent point. However, I'm truly sorry you've lost a friend. Come on guys, get up, get active. Nobody knows how long we'll live. Let's make the best out of it.
Feel better,
Twink!
