For our darling Butchy


Our darling boy Butchy is crossing over the Bridge today. He will be met by his darling sister Snickers and all of our pals and friends that are there. He knows we will take care his Mama and Papa and Katy. So at 5 pm today send a kiss up to help Butchy feel all of our love and to help give his Mama strength. We have very very sad and heavy hearts today and words can not adequately day what we feel, but we think this Navajo prayer says it all....... God speed little buddy.....



Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep. 
I am in a thousand winds that blow, 
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain, 
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush, 
I am in the graceful rush 
Of beautiful birds in circling flight, 
I am the starshine of the night. 
I am in the flowers that bloom, 
I am in a quiet room. 
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing
Do not stand at my grave and cry, 
I am not there. I do not die.

Thank you Agatha and Archie.

We will stay up late tonight so we can light a candle especially for Butchy to help him find his way.

You are the bestest, you've chosen the most perfect prayer for our dearest Butchy boy. I know it will comfort Moma and Papa Lamb, Katie and the kitties too.

I sent him squillions of square kisses on the wind to join with everybloggies to help him soar and shine in the sky tonight. God bless you dear Butchy.

We just saw your beautiful prayer...we know Butchy and Snickers are just frolicing and flyin' around chasing those herons with their angel wings...

They've been our friends for forever...

We celebrate their lives every time we give a tug on our leash, bark, dig, do zoomies...not come when called...when we're at our terrier best.

Love you guys,

S L & S!!
