Hey Jude ...

Dear Jude, 

Thanks for the ball.   We took it on our walk today and me and Sooki had fun swimming with it.

Here is Sooki swimming out to get it.  Since I can swim much better than her, "the boss" held my collar so she'd have a fair chance of getting it.  

I must confess that she's a pretty good swimmer for a pitbull.

Here we both are in the lake.  "The boss" doesn't usually bring a ball so this was a very special treat for us.

It was a pretty hot day and we both did lots of swimming.   

I'm sorry that you can't play with your ball any more but am grateful that you shared all your balls with us other dogs.

"The boss" picked the orange and blue one at the back right.  I don't know what "orange and blue" means but that's OK coz I don't know what "back right" means either.  We dogs don't use words much; we'd far rather use wagging tails, wiggling bums and smiling faces.  I know you get that Jude.

"The boss" read your sign with your picture, Jude.   She said it made her think how lucky she was to have me and Sooki still with her.  Well where else would we be ?   

"The boss" told us that you were clearly a very lucky dog were loved and well-cared for.  I glanced at your photo, and as a part-lab myself may I say you are most handsome fella.

Here we are posing with your sign and your box of balls.

I look forward to thanking you in person Jude and perhaps we can go for a swim together, as I have been informed by "the boss" that all dogs go to Heaven.   See you there !

Thanks again,  



  1. Sybil, that was lovely. Thank you.
    My heart goes out to the Marshalls, clearly very loving 'parents'. I'm wondering if they're on your blog list?
    Feel so very fortunate to still have Bella, our every-day joy.

    1. Ros, no I don't know them. I printed off my blog and put it in an envelope (in plastic) and will leave it with a note in the "ball box" today ...
