this weekend one of the bestest, bwavest kindest, funnest fwiend of mine 

had to cwoss the bwidge 

he was a dappew Pwince among tewwiews and a fwiend to all

I will miss his smile and sense of hoomow...his willingness fow adventoowe , his love of hambuwgews, but most of all his attitoode of nevew giving up and enjoying evewy second of his life

 Pip was so vewy loved by his little hooman sisse Madeline and his Mom and Dad, who adopted him and gave him the most loving home any doggie coold want. 

 When he found out that his littol heawt might not be able to be stwong enuff fow this eawf (I think it was just too big to be contained in his handsum littol body), he didn't give up, he fought hawd and bounced back and planned the most wondewful bucket toow.
 I was lucky enuff to have him cum visit me hewe in faw off Boo da Pest , and what fun we had
he toowed the city, sampled the local spas
and sampled the local foods 

and when I waved fawewll to him , Ihad a big lump in my fwoat and teaws in my eyes

 I now know that ouw meeting will have to wait until I join him at the bwidge. I know he'll wemembew me cause he is staying in my heawt. 
 Till then, wun fwee wif new bounce in youw little legs and youw stwong big heawt you have left a hooge hole in ouw lives hewe on eawf... 

smoochie kisses fuwwevew  

pleez evewyone go visit Pip's
bloggie and leave youw love to help heal his family's heawt

Pip certainly did have a big heart and he was very brave and determined to stay with his family as long as he could. Now I'm sure he's busy organising fun and games and having a great reunion with all those friends who have gone before.

Oh gosh, we're crying all over again. Thanks so much Ms. Asta, for writing such a beautiful tribute to our friend, Pip. He was a true sweetheart and we will never forget the little fella.

I think all of blogville cried this weekend...there was just something extra special about Mr Pip that we ALL loved so much...but we know his Mom doesn't want us to be sad...she wants to remember all the wonderful things about him....and how he crashing into things as he learns to use his new wings and having so much fun catching up with so many of his buddies. We hear he had the hugest cheeseburger party last night !!

We too are so sad with the parting of Pip. He may have gone but he is not forgotten. He was a big part of Blogville. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

Asta, what a wonderful tribute to the incomparable Mr Pip.
Such a small terrier, such an enormous hole left behind on Earth.
But Asta, remember it is not for us pups to be too sad, our role is to bring smiles to our humans, through thick and thin.
Toodle pip!

I was glad he had a cheeseburger to keep his tummy full on his final journey. Run free, little terrier.

So sorry to hear about Pip xxxx

Gus said...

I remember when Pip made his bucket toor and how jealous I was that he got to spend time with you. I know that you and Mommi loved him and loved his visit. I am looking forward to meeting him at the Bridge.
