Dear Insty: Many of us share the feelings...to the respect that a lot of us are animal lovers and pet persons. Webster will come back to you somehow, someway. I hope I do not bore people...but, yet again, another story! I was in Petsmart a while back and it was "Pet Adoption Day." At that time I was caring for four felines, and had to buy "on the cheap" since it can cost quite a lot to feed and care for them. My kitty litter expenditures are outrageous! I pay some fair amount of money for that which I toss out twice a day. Anyway, I had a cat named Pendleton, or Penicin, as my 2 yo stepdaughter could not say Pendleton. We adopted that name and called her that all her life. She had beautiful brown fur and black stripes. She had a "ring" tail. But, the most fascinating thing is that she had "Egyptian" eye make up...if you know what I mean. Sorta like Cheetahs do. Mystical, but tragically sad eyes. I was trying to walk quickly past the poor homeless pets, and then I saw a cat that was the exact duplicate of Penicin! My God, I was VERY tempted to adopt that cat right then and there. But, alas, dollar signs entered my eyes, and I turned away. I often wonder if that was her, returned, exactly as she left. And then I think, NO....it is just a remarkable coincidence. I hope that you will share the joy of frolic, roll, play and chase bunnies again. And so, you will! My best wishes to Web, and my best of all wishes to you.
Sincerely, Marty and Luckylee, Poppyhead & SissyGirl

Yesterday we got a sympathy card from Web's vet with signatures of all the docs and techs, enclosed was his paw print. Sighh...how thoughtful it is that they incorporate this kindness into their practice!! ?
I am sure that Webster, Joshua, and Jill's Schmo Dog (?sp) are over there just yacking it up with each other. And Marty, I know just the cat face you are referring to, mystical, exotic, takes your breath away in the manner of having sagely qualities and having it all figured out, and having lived through many lifetimes. Awesome! Also, I find no coincidence in you seeing a cat that looked like Penicin....seems like a plot to me!!! I can hear them now..."hey, arrange for Pops to go to Petsmart. Make him walk past the Kitty Adoption area. Let's mess with his head"!
Love and Thank Yous to all of you...Pretty Iris, Lovely Rose, Marty, Paul- your words are more than appreciated.

Oh my, HUN, I was just in your shoes. My baby schmo dawg is there too. I didn't take it very well, which is odd. I miss him very much and well, someday, we will all see our precious family members once again.
My love and condolences, knowing you are correct, they are playing and dancing now. xoxo
