First The Sad: Like quite a lot of us, I first heard of Digby when Booker urged us to go visit because he was very ill. He fought long enough to get to know him a little and what a courageous little fighter he was. When it comes to us dogs, it's not the quantity but the quality of our days on earth that matters. (That's a thing we Shar Pei have to keep in mind all the time.) It sure seems like Digby got a lot out of life, but our hearts go out to the family that will miss him most.
The Happy is that it's Madi's Gotcha Day. Always a reason for celebration. Being that Madi is a cat, I wanted to show some solidarity with her in this post and conjure up one of her own pawple to convey my congratulations.
I hope it was a great Gotcha Day, Madi. And many, many happy returns of the day.
