POTP for Miss Maggie and Little Toby and Farewell to Bjorn


Beautiful Maggie is 13 1/2 years old and her rugged dale body is wearing down.
I'm sure you all know her as Maggie and her brother Mitch are two of the most supportive, commenting doggies in all of blogland.
Her mom and dad are keeping her happy and comfortable but I am sure they would appreciate your good thoughts and kind words.

Visit her here.




My little friend, Toby, all the way in Alaska suffered an injury when he dashed through the doggie door with a bit too much vigor and he had to go to the emergency room. He is home and taking medication now and hoping that it is "just" soft tissue damage. Visit him here.

I was also sad to read that little ferret, Bjorn made his final journey. He was one nutty character for sure. Don't believe me? Just watch this movie of him with his siblings causing mayhem.





One can only imagine what must be happening right now over that Rainbow Bridge. No wonder we had thunder and lightening and a power outage last night.

Miss Maggie will always be young at heart but we have our paws crossed that she will not be in pain and get to have all the treats she wants.

We just left Maggie and Mitch's blog - so sad, but we understand the humans' thinking - much the same here with Phantom. We hope she has many more good and happy days ahead of her.

We read about Bjorn, soft woos to his family. And we will cross our paws for your pal Toby too. Not a good way to be ending the year.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

You're right. The Rainbow bridge must be one hopping place. There are some wild and crazy animals there.

I think this December is one for the record books in our dog blog community for sadness. I am off to M&M to offer a kind word.

On a brighter note, Toby is improving- his neck is still sore, he is doing well on his pain meds & I am watching him carefully. The neighbor labs have been calling but I notice he is not in a mad dash to get out to join them. Jeter sticks close to Toby - so sweet to see him snuggle close to his big brother.

Thanks for caring. I am hopeful Toby did not injure a disc - fingers crossed !

Ms. ~K said...

Lots of sadness and concern for sure...
So happy to hear your sister is improving...sending positive, healing thoughts to her and a hug of support to YOU!!!!

Maggie and Mitch said...

You are the bestest friend ever, Mango. Thank you for caring about me. I think I need to ask mom to make more desserts so I can lick the beaters clean!
Bjorn was so adorable. Our hearts ache for his family.

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

We are so sorry...

Laura, Lance, and Vito said...

Thanks Nancy. It's always hard to lose a friend. But Bjorn wasn't feeling well anymore and I know that now he can be partying it up again.

Marjie said...

There's a lot of commotion at the Rainbow Bridge for sure. I suspect Thor and El'bow are sitting back, because mastiffs seem averse to the whole circus routine.

Very sad news today! We're sending our thoughts out to everyone who seems to really need it today!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Uncle Mango, we went to visit sweet Maggie, left Toby a message for a speedy recovery and will visit Bjorn's family. Its certainly a time for family and friends to lend a paw. Hope your Momma's sister is getting better each day. Hope you are ok too. Hugs and slobbers to all. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Au and Target said...

Maggie Mae said...

Mango,
We were so sad to hear the news about our sweet furiend Miss Maggie, but we know that her will be watched over and cared for by Mitch and her mom and dad. Extra boxer puppy prayers are being sent to her and to Toby. We did not know Bjorn but we is so sorry fur da loss of your furiend, we will go visit his family now.

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae and Max

PeeS Max is doing ok, the medication and limited activity seem to be helping, but he sure doesn't like not being able to do zoomies with me in the yard. :(
We sure hopes you is doing better too. It's tough not being able to bounce.
