Ol' Sure Shot....

Dear Ones,
      In what seems like the blink of an eye, we of Blogville have lost so many that we hold NEAR and DEAR to our hearts.    I have been blogging for a long time and Gracie Lynn, Pip, and Benny were some of our first blogging friends.    We have stayed friends through Thick and Thin   Good times and Bad.      Those of you who are NEW to Blogville are just learning of the Strong BONDS that have been forged here.   
       Hold your loved ones Close.   Show them the LOVE you have for him/her/them EVERY CHANCE YOU GET.
      Help them to live EVERY SINGLE Hour of EVERY Day to the FULLEST.    WE do not count the time we have together in YEARS... we count it in HOURS...   Make the MOST of those hours and they will be full of MARVELOUS MEMORIES that will sustain you for the long haul.   
     Hug your BELOVED COMPANION(s).    Let them have an extra Bite of something they love.  Allow them to be on your furniture...  they won't be there FOREVER you know.    Sleep with them... cuddled Close... they won't take up all that space... in the blink of an eye.          Buy him/her/them an extra toy...  they don't have as many YEARS to play as WE do.      Make the VERY MOST of EVERY HOUR.       And don't ever stop Blogging...   We Need YOU.    YOU help US to OVERCOME and Continue.       We of Blogville have Lost ENOUGH...   and it HURTS.    

Now you KNOW all about how Ernie wanted to play the Arcade thingy fur Weight Guessering.. and how he won a prize fur his Roxy..   butt that is not the ONLY one we played...    I saw this Shootering Gallery thingy and I though... being Ol' Sure Shot's Boys... WE should give this one a SHOT...   Well we didn't QUITE understand the RULES though...
    WE thought we were gonna get to Fire off our PEE Shooters and DARN IT we are GOOD at that... we just took Target Practice with SARGE you know...   WELL, Can you BELIEVE it they had STOOPID rules..
        Furst it was WAAAAAY too HIGH UP fur us... even when we gotted on the STOOL Sample Thingy...  
 Shoot Till you WIN...   DAD look how FAR AWAY those Blue and Red cups are...   HOW am I gonna Hit them from HERE???    I don't think I have had enough water to load me up fur THIS!   WHAT???  What are you saying???    They don't want us to Fire our PEE SHOOTERS at them???
 OMD OMD   we have to use THIS thingy???        I am MUCH better at firing my PEE SHOOTER than a  {{{GULP}}}   HOOGE and HEAVY  GUN !!!            OK !   I'll give it a TRY butt I would be MUCH better using my OWN Weapon... Just sayin.

FRANKIE...... I don't think I can DO this...   I can't HIT em from up here..
 OMD FRANKIE     MY PEE SHOOTER will NEVER reach that FAR....   HECK I still SQUAT sometimes...     and OMD  I should NOT have watered that tree...   THIS is a DISASTER....
 Roxy will be SOOOOOO embarrassed by my LACK of MANLY ... Skills...   I am gonna just HIDE MY FACE in SHAME...   WHINE   WHIMPER   WHINE...      THIS is so  M BARE ASSING
 Well since we seemed to be...    a little LACKING in THIS KIND of  Shootering Skills...  DAD (the REAL Ol' SURE SHOT) tooked PITY on us and he won two little Cars fur us.
BUTT we gave them to a little boy that was very much nice to us.
    Tomorrow we will show you some MORE of the Pumpkin Show sights...      It really WAS grrrrreat... even WITH the  PEE SHOOTERing FIASCO .

Oh Lana, thank you so much for putting into words exactly how I feel but can't express. So many friends lost too soon but it helps me to know my Weenie is surrounded with friends. Will the ters ever stop?

Madi and Mom said...

Lovely touching post for our sweet Friends who left us too soon
Hugs Madi your bfff

GizmoGeodog said...

My eyes are teary and I've been hugging Gizmo tight since last night when I heard the sad news...

On the pea shooter front, only hoomins would invent a game that needs a weird tool instead of using perfectly good built-in pea shooters

Mollie said...

Beautiful Post Lana, you said it all for us. We all have such a strong bond in Blogville, when I started blogging I never thought that would be possible. I never realized how many good friends I would come to know.I never knew how heart broken I would be when sadly one left us. We have lost 3 in less than a week. Love you all xxxxxxxx

That is what mom says too is the curse of being human...we live so much longer than everything when we have fur babies we HAVE to make every day special. It has bee back sad week with pip and now Benny and makes us all realize how much we need to give extra cuddles EVERY day

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

We love how you worded the first part of this post. It was said from the heart and made our mom's eyes water all up because she was sad.

As for the pee-shooter -- now that made Mom's eyes water even more -- butt that time those were happy tears.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Well said Lana. Extra hugs for Bertie today (luckily I am not at work) as we laugh together at Ernie and his pee shooter tribulations.

Sarge said...

I am so incredibly sad to lose Pip and now Benny. They were two of Sarge's very first friends and I've loved every minute of time sharing their lives. We have had so many laughs together. I will definitely give Sarge extra hugs today and please snuggle F-n-E for me.
OMD Ole Sure Shot is right...thank dawg he used the gun and didn't listen to the boys this time! BOL

Mayzie said...

Mama Lana, you said what all of us feel right now. Your postie got my mom all leakified and then she gave us an extra treat. So for THAT especially, I say THANK YOU!

And Frankie and Ernie, don't be embarrassed! I mean, that game was obviously RIGGED. They just wanted to keep all that good loot to themselves. Good thing your dad showed 'em how it's done and didn't let them get one over on you.

I can't wait to see what you all did next!

Wiggles & Wags,

How sweet of you to give the little boy the cars. Very thoughtful.
You say wise words Lana. Very wise.
Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

Lots of Golden Moments everyday in our house. We lost PAWsome bloggie friends this month. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

LetterstoAndrew said...

They are with us for such a short amount of time, I will hold my babies close and love them all the more.

Jazzi said...

You and Ernie are so funny!!!

Thanks for being a friend

Your words are so true. Little did we know just one year ago when we started blogging the friendships we would form and treasure always

It is unbelievable that we have lost so many friends in such a short space of time. Lovely post, we will all miss them.

Frank The Tank said...

Such beautiful words Lana, you have such a big heart and that was truly touching, it really does sum up what we all are feeling at this very sad time, our Blogville community is such a close knit, loving, caring and supportive community, I love being a part of it but hate to lose my Furiends and see them cross the bridge, but one day it will be my turn too and I will be so happy to be reunited with them all, such fond memories!

Oh that really made me laugh, to see you both thinking what you are going to do, trying to figure out if you could aim your own shooters at the cups and win, poor Ernie looks scared, so worried that he watered that tree instead of using it for amo! Glad to see your Daddy stepped in to show you how it'd done, I mean that gun was bigger than both of you! Great post today, made me cry, made me laugh! Love and Licks from Your Furiend Frank XxxxX

Jan's Funny Farm said...

What you said is so true. It's hard losing so many friends.

We're glad your dad is a good shot. Sorry they rigged the game so you guys couldn't win.

Hey, let ME send Bites over, hes full of it and put out a fire from 10 feet!

We Miss Our Frenchie

scotsmad said...

Totally unfair. We think they were afraid you'd clean them out of prizes if you played by your rules.

Nice of you to give the cars to that boy.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella& Roxy

I, Roxy, think you are VERY brave and handsome, Ernie.

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Every word you said Luna is so so so true!!! I am crying for my Zoie and for our friends we lose in Blogville too!!!! I miss every one of them!!!
The cats have ruined my chair. Have made holes in the walls, are so very hard on this old house but they still give us so very much!!! We love them more then words can say. Beautiful post--thank you Luna.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Mr Frankie, we agree. If we share the love we have for our friends it helps through the sad times. We love Blogville for being such a wonderful, caring community.
Sorry you didn't get to shoot but thankdogness your Ol' Sure Shot was a winner! Bet the little boy was happy too! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
P.S. Ernie mate, don't tell anyone butt I still squat and you can imagine what that looks like, sigh. Slobbers, Rory.

Murray's Mouth said...

Very well said, furiend :)

Murphy said...

Wonderful words Lana. Luckily (for us) our pawrents know what loss feels like so they love us real good. We're all only here for awhile.

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Maggie Mae and Max said...

Sigh...thank you for sharing, your post says it all.

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae and Max

PeeS Mom has promised her will try and get us back in Blogville on a regular basis again. We miss all of you so very much!

harrispen said...

Your words today are wonderful. It has been a tough week in Blogville, but our dear departed friends wouldn't want us to be sad for too long.

I love the look on the carnival barkers face when the pups are on the shelf. How sweet that you gave the cars away to a little boy you met.

It's such a sad time friends

Ruby said...

Oh, Ms. Lana, that is just what all of us are feelin'. Our hearts are heavy and our eyes are leakin', and the good news is Ma gave me extra treaties today. She said I can go back on my diet tomorrows. Today, I gets extras in Benny and Pips honor.
See, they are still lookin' out for us!! BOL

Wowsa!! I thinks you guys would have to drinks like 87 thousand bowls of waters to hit those targets!!! BOL
Good things your Pops was there to shoot the gun and win those fancy schmancy cars!!!
Ruby ♥

Oskar said...

As I just said to you in an email, you have the most amazing way with words Lana.

Frankie & Ernie, why would a boy dog need a gun? Wasn't your dad allowed to use his pee shooter either? Very confusing.

Nubbin wiggles,
Oskar (Pam too)

Dougall-the-Scottie said...

My peep, he always looks for games like that when he goes to fairs, but they mustn't be allowed to have them here in Australia any more...

sprinkles said...

It really does hurt to lose a Blogville friend. Even though I've never met any of my online friends in person, they've had such an impact on me. Thank you for saying what I could never express as brilliantly as you have.
