A Sad and a Happy

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.


  1. That was most beautifully said Lola. I couldn't have said it betters myself. I gots alot of quality going on myself. GodSpeed Digby...we all love you.
    Happy Gotcha Day Madi...even though you is a kitteh.

  2. Very nice Lola...Happy Gotcha Day
    Benny & Lily

  3. You are very wise, Miss Lola. Well said...

    Happy Gotcha Day, Kitty Madi!


  4. Doesn't seem like all our hearts are breaking at the same time today? I haven't even been able to post on Digby's bloggie today cuz every time we start, momma can't see to type cuz she starts leaking everywhere. I wish we had had the chance to know him betters.

    But on a happier note, I thinks it's very much sweet that you wished Miss Madi a Happy Gotcha Day and that picture is SOOOO funny! Madi may be a kitteh but she's one cool cat!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  5. We still can't believe we won't see Digby every morning!

    That cat is a riot!


  6. yes, miss lola, i always knew that you were a very smart lady. it is all about the quality not the quantity. digby had such a wonderful life and a wonderful family. he lived his life to the 100% fullest, and he will be remembered fondly.

  7. We are so very sad about Digby and we just got to know him.
    But we all know he will love his "new" life.

    Happy "gotcha day" to Madi!

  8. You are so right, Lola, it's the quality and not quantity during our days here... Digby will be missed... and hope Madi has a purfect Gotcha Day.

    Licks, hero

  13. Hi Lola....oh my goodness you are absolutely too sweet to wish me a great day on your blog...what a great girlfriend you are!!! It was a very nice day indeed.
