Farewell My Friend
I should have known today would be a bad day when I woke two hours before my alarm was due to go off, after having a distressing dream. Around midday I got a call from dad - I can tell something's wrong by the tone in his voice, and sure enough... Mum had gone out grocery shopping that morning, and had just come home to find Socrates, their Keeshond dog (sorta like a grey Samoyed) dead:-( He was a beautiful dog, and had such a gorgeous nature. He wouldn't have hurt a fly. He was so good with Willow - she'd jump and bark and egg him on, trying to get him to play, but he never snapped at her, he took it all in his stride - we used to joke that it was payback for the way he used to do the same thing to our previous dog Sunshine. The other thing about Keeshonds is that they'll bark when someone is at the door, not to scare intruders away but just to let you know that there's someone there. We would joke about that and how he usually wouldn't start to bark until the person had actually knocked on the door, by which time we were already aware someone was there, but he had to let us know anyway. He also had the ability to leap with all four legs off the ground at the one time. He was so full of life and energy, even at 13 years old, it was so strange to see him lying there, completely still, not moving:-( It was unreal. We think he had a heart attack due to old age, but whatever happened, I hope he didn't suffer, and I hope he's in a happier place.
RIP Soccy, you were a good friend and we won't ever forget you:-(

I've just read the latest entry in Wil Wheaton's blog and read that poor Felix has passed away:-( I remember what it was like when we lost our dog Sunshine, and then our first cat Dusty and then Charlotte. After Dusty passed away I could still remember how his little fishy breath smelled, and how he would miaow (constantly!). What I wouldn't have given to have heard him miaow again. I guess it's like most relationships - even though it hurts we keep going back, it's part of life I guess. We lose one partner, we take our time to grieve and eventually start looking for another partner to share our lives. And so it is with our pets. We grieve for them and swear we'll never ever get another pet - I know my mum did after we lost Sunshine - but then she went out and adopted Plato, their Maltese (of course she didn't really have much of a choice, he just turned up on their doorstep one day). I hope Wil takes his time to grieve for poor Felix, but doesn't close his heart to the possibility of adopting another pet in time. They give us so much joy - there are times I can't imagine what I would do without my little puppy, and I really do think that I wouldn't be here if I hadn't adopted her when I did. She'll never know how much I love her and how grateful I am for her unconditional love.
Gee, that got pretty morbid didn't it.
Wil, my thoughts are with you and if I could give you a great big hug I would.

More Wil Wheaton kitty news
Hi everyone
I've been keeping updated with Wil Wheaton's blog that I've talked about before. Apparently Sketch is doing better but his other cat Felix is now not well either.
Wil, it's not stupid at all to talk to your animals as though they were human - I'm convinced they understand more than we think they do. And you may have your doubts, but I totally believe that your "talk" with Sketch had a big part to play in him feeling better.
Sending huge hugs and happy thoughts for you and both your kitties, and I'm confident that whatever happens, your heart will guide you to make the right decision.

Now for something completely different.
Hi everyone,
First of all, thanks Kel/Tyler and Rachel who responded to my plea in my last entry. As you've both pointed out, I should be writing this for me, and not for anyone else.
Anyways, I was thinking, I know there are keeper lists out there, but I can't find anyone else who has claimed this, so unless anyone has any objections, I am hereby proclaiming myself the keeper of Daniel/Michael's dancing eyebrows, and lovely lips:-)

This is cool...
...but pretty much what I expected.

Your Dominant Intelligence is Musical Intelligence

Every part of your life has a beat, and you're often tapping your fingers or toes.
You enjoy sounds of all types, but you also find sound can distract you at the wrong time.
You are probably a gifted musician of some sort - even if you haven't realized it.
Also a music lover, you tend to appreciate artists of all kinds.

You would make a great musician, disc jockey, singer, or composer.

This came as a surprise though:-)

You Are Incredibly Logical

(You got 75% of the questions right)

Move over Spock - you're the new master of logic

You think rationally, clearly, and quickly.

A seasoned problem solver, your mind is like a computer!
