We are still here...quick update

My son helping with the feral cat food distribution in our house. We have about three homeless kitties that get daily food and water and I am proud my son is learning the importance of being kind to animals

 Bella as usual is taking care of all the boo boos in the household as she is the nanny and even more so since brinksy is gone. She has taken on the role of mother hen and does not leave their side. She sends everyone tons of pibble sugars.

Brinksy winksy to join the fearless five

We just wanted to let everyone know that we have made the gut wrenching decision to help brinks over the rainbow bridge tomorrow. We can not be selfish and he has let us know that ITS TIME. The chemo has not been working and his tumor has actually enlarged over the last days. We can tell he is in a lot of pain and has started to refuse food. We think it is because he is in a great deal of pain and the pain medicine may not be working anymore as the tumor has gotten bigger. We have each spent a night with him and explained to him that we love him and his pain will soon end. We have said we are sorry that there is nothing that can heal him. Both me and my mom will be there tomorrow holding his paw when the time comes. Please keep us in your prayers tomorrow as this has already been a terrible month and tomorrow will be heartbreaking. We love you all that continue on the journey with us after all that we have been through. Bella the original of the pittie pack will be taken care of with extra care as she has been attached to him since we rescued her. Brinks was the one who "welcomed" her into the pack and never left her side until now. Please let some of our fur blogging friends know if you can so we can all lift him up tomorrow when it's his time to be reunited with our precious Fearless Five.

The c monster strikes again

It is with immense sadness that I have to report that the c monster has struck again. Boy we sure hate that monster. My beloved gramps walked over the rainbow bridge this past Friday. We had not posted about it sooner because he was just admitted to the hospital literally one week before. He was diagnosed with cancer within days and we were told he only had a few days to live. All this was a whirlwind and we were beyond shocked. He was one of this men that never complained about a pain so he didn't worry my granny. He would take care if my granny as best he could and never wanted to see her worry. Granny and gramps were married since they were 17 and a can only hope to god to have a love like theirs in our lifetime. I lived with them all my life until I got married myself so he was really a father to me and we miss him terribly already. He was always full of laughter and that is what I'll most remember about him. Even on the hospital bed in pain he was cracking jokes. He was one of those people that made your stomache hurt from laughing so much. We are holding strong for gramma. We have to keep her spirits up now that he is watching over us. He would have been 92 on March 24th. I guess their is going to be a in pawty now at the bridge on that day. Please keep us in your prayers. Especially my granny. We love you all and thank you for checking in on us.

The c monster

It is with great sadness that we must inform you guys that Brinkley winksy pudding and pie is currently battling the big C monster. Last week his biopsy came back as cancer. The good news is that it is treatable and we have great faith that with the chemotherapy it Will scare it away and never come back. He started his chemo yesterday and so far he seems to be doing okay. Momma here is far more anxious than the whole pack of course and is currently on major paranoid pibble momma mode. She jumps every time he sighs or huffs. But brinksy winksy is being strong like all pibbles are and Bella is right by his side most every minute. Please join us in saying a little prayer for our pudding pie so he may remain strong through his chemo and that the c monster leaves our pack alone.

The most beautiful words ever written

Had to repost the words i read over and over again so many nights....


2011.....
I want to thank Frankie Furter for these beautiful words.......and as Amber daweenie said my fearless five is how we will always remember them......

Presented by Frankie Furter in Loving memory, understanding, and friendship for Brinks & Bella and Angels Coco, Shelby, Lucky, Tiger, Guero.

We KNEW that IT was coming. We could Feel IT in the very air. We KNEW we would Not be able to Stop IT, but we Had to Protect our beloved two leggers. We, the Houston Pittie Pack and Wee Ones, Had to make Plans.

From the first moment that we Sensed IT was coming, we were very aware that some of us would need to STAY BEHIND to continue to Love and Protect and Care for our Mommish, Daddish, Grammish , and our Baby Two Legger. That would be a most important assignment. None of us felt worthy. Each believed another possessed the qualities needed to take on the task.

We also admit that we each wanted to take the Easy Path.. The one where we would chase IT completely away... Well beyond the Rainbow.. and then be able to REST on the other side of the Bridge.

Oh the SHAME we felt. WHY? WHY was IT coming to OUR Safe Home? WHY to Sandra's Sanctuary, as we love to call it. And WHY couldn't we Prevent IT's Evil Arrival?

We wanted, but could not find a way to make our people Aware of what was going to happen. WHY couldn't we make the DANGER KNOWN? WHY couldn't we Stop IT? Our saintly mommish had SAVED each and EVERY One of Us. WHY could we not save her from what was going to happen?

OH the GUILT. The Horrible GUILT we all felt. We Should have been able to do for HER what SHE had done fur US. Our Hearts were CRUSHED. We were miserable and felt Useless. OH, the GUILT.

It was Shelby who finally made it clear that we needed to face some difficult facts. We could NOT change the fact that there would be great sadness, but the most important thing of all was to ensure that EVERY ONE of our Humans WOULD SURVIVE and be watched over once we managed to drive IT away.

Shelby made us understand that WE had Mommish, and the other people in our home, to thank for saving US and for showing us such tenderness. It was OUR turn to give back to HER. We, Guero, Shelby, Coco Chanel, Tiger, Lucky, Brinks, and Bella, had known more devotion than any of us ever dreamed possible and it was due to the people who had taken us in and made our lives worth living. Our lives were so wonderful. Not to be measured in the Number of Days ... but by the QUALITY of those days.

There was never a question in our minds.. Mommish, Daddish, Grammish, and the precious baby two legger Must be protected and SAVED. We may not be able to PREVENT, but we Could SAVE, at any cost. SHE saved US we needed to SAVE HER and Her FAMILY.

Who will Go and Who will Stay? We could not decide. We could not VOTE. We resorted to the silly game BONE STUFFIE PAW Bone outweighs Stuffie Stuffie has no Paw and Paw Buries Bone. We had seen people play that with rocks and paper and scissors. Our friends will get a laugh out of that. They will remember how we always Love to have FUN together. Although we enjoyed our game we knew the results would be Serious and must be accepted with Strength and Conviction, just as OUR Mommish has always shown us to do. Yes, we DID enjoy our last game... until we are all together again.

The result of the game was that Brinks and Bella would be the ones entrusted to Remain Behind. They would Comfort and PROTECT in our absence. The rest of us would Drive IT away.

Bella immediately sensed that the little two legger needed to be very close to Mommish and Daddish...especially at NIGHT.. because we were sure that IT would choose the DARKEST TIME to do IT's DARKEST Deed. Bella worked for two days to make the humans AWARE that the two legger baby... was not feeling well and needed to be watched closely... They finally seemed to understand her looks and body language. Bella was finally able to convince the people to move the baby's bed into their bedroom. Bella proved her skill at watching over our little one with all her power.

Brinks would be our Strength.. Our Bone Solid Strength. He would be the one to show Mommish, that all of the days to come, are OUR legacy to HER.



The Plan was ready... we each had our jobs... and when IT came... we did NOT shirk. We Sounded the Alarm and with all our might we Barked and BARKED. IT tried to get to the two leggers but we drove IT back. We gave them the time they needed to get safely away.

Some of the people who were there that night, did not understand that we CHOSE to be where we were.. and to do what we had planned, in order to hold IT at BAY. They foolishly tried to break our concentration. That would have been a disaster. We did not allow it to happen. They didn't realize that WE had everything under control. They didn't KNOW about our PLAN. They did not know that we had been taught to let Nothing stand in the way of what needs to be done. We felt sad that they did not understand our mission. It nearly broke our hearts to hear our names being called and not being able to leave our stations. We stood fast, but hoped that Some Day everyone would understand and forgive us for steadfastly holding IT back.

We took up our positions and we did NOT waver. We began to Bark... Furious Barks.. NOT barks of fear. We Barked our most FIERCE Barks and we were Finally able to Confuse and Frighten IT, and to cause IT to retreat.
We Barked until IT was far enough away that we needed to transform ourselves so that we could continue to drive IT even farther and faster. The FIVE of us made the transition to the other side of the Rainbow Bridge where we could move with the speed and agility needed to pursue the evil thing and to chase IT to a place far beyond where IT could ever harm our dear ones ever again.

We Five are now together, resting with friends we had not seen for a very long time. Brinks and Bella will join us some day, when their jobs are finished. We will never know Why IT chose to attack our beautiful home, but the SHAME and GUILT, which we once felt, have been lifted from our backs. WE saved our people. We did NOT Fail them.
We, the Houston Pittie Pack and Wee Ones, will think often of the night we were able to show OUR devotion.

April here

Howdy everyfurry, april here. I am quite enjoying my new life i must say. Mommish says irs nice having another baby around. She says im just lke a human baby because she has to get up at crazy hours of the night so i can tinkle. I think im just too cute and can get away with it. I have a big brother and sister but they are very couch potato like. Our human boys just love for me to chase em around the living room and they jump over the road humps called bella and brinks. Teee hee hee
My most favorite thing is to lay on daddish lap. I can see everything that is going on from here and im very nosy. Im most curious about every little thing just like a human baby. Mommish says that three  babies are making her hair go gray. I think that color would look wondeful on her.
This life is most diffrent from the one i came from but i wouldnt trade it for the world. I am quite enjoying being the baby of the familish.
Sugars, april

Red light puppy

Howdy pupsters....yesterday was most horrid and then wonderful all at the same time....it all started with mommish drive home from work....at the red light on the side of the freeway she saw some (insert choice of hbo word here) throw something out of the passenger side window....quickly she realized that it was a wee puppy...well light turned green and mommish panicked,  proceeded to put the car on park and like a crazy lunatic got out and ran to get the puppy. Needless to say after much honking and crazy looks mommish and red light puppy were safely in the car. Mommish drove to the nearest parking lot to calm her nerves and fury before driving home to us. She was very sad and mad someone would do such a horrid thing. Once home red light puppy was welcomed by all as mommish explained the story to dad. Jr the two year old was very upset she had been thrown away and immediately hugged her. For the rest of the afternoon they were glued together. He is the one that made it clear she was to be added to the pack. When i asked him to pick a name for red light puppy he said ...april....
You see, april is the girl that all the ninja turtles protect and are friends with on their cartoon. He said that him and michael were going to protect her from now on. So here she is ady pups and gentleboys APRIL GONZALEZ! Toot! Toot!
