Sunday Sharing - Sadly Updated

It happened AGAIN - a furiend furry suddenly has left us -please stop over and show Penny, Patches, and Lana some love - all too recently they lost their dad/husband/love of their life and now they've lost Poppy
Mom and I don't have the words - just more tears
Snow furry nice


The dreams

Did I say khomfy?


What a nice pillow this is

I know it won't be here furever but fur now I'm enjoying it!

Tastes soooooo yummy!

Hey - how did this one get in here?


Pfffffft to those of woo that think I'm khrazy!

Here is video demonstrating my pawesome Siberian Rules Football skills!

Mom is on a transport mission today - early afternoon run from Hagerstown MD to Harrisburg PA. She's looking furward to meeting these passengers but she is going to be a bit sad during the run.

Many of the drivers this weekend are dedicating their legs to Shari Johannes who was one of the humans behind Dog Pack Rescue in GA. Shari left this world late in the week - all of it got to be too much fur her to handle and she made a decision to end the pain.

We hope she's found peace and khomfort akhross The Rainbow Bridge with those furry souls she's touched with her warm and kharing human heart and paws.




Sam said...

So sorry for the loss of a woman who seems to have bee a great advocate for the animals.

And, wow! I can't believe you still have all of that snow. A lot of ours has melted - we can actually see the grass again!

Stacy/Brutus/Miley said...

You look so comfy in the snow. Enjoy it while it lasts!

Tanuki Maxx said...

Ooh...look at all dat snow..!!

Cyber-sibes said...

Cozy cozy snowy snow!
We're sorry to hear about such a wonderful biped leaving, we know there will be rejoicing over the Bridge when their dear friend arrives!

a-roos to yous,
jack a-roo & moo too

Keisha said...

May Shari rest in peace. Love to you and your Mom also.

Sweet Praline said...

You're a natural in the snow.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Khyra!
You have a very comfy snowy bed!
Maybe if I had more fur I'd enjoy it too!
Sure it is very sad to know about Shari.
Great the transport is dedicated to her.
Take care
Kisses and hugs

BeadedTail said...

We're sorry to hear about Shari. That's very sad news.

We loved watching you play football Khyra! You were really cute looking for something else to get into too!

We hope your mom's transport goes well today.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Jeepers, were sad to hear about Sharie. We too hope she finds peace and love at the Bridge.
It is a nice tribute to dedicate the transport to her.

Khyra, I cannot believe that you are not cold out there laying in that snow! I shiver just looking at you!

Batu said...

Isn't it cold lying in the snow like that????

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

We are glad to see you are still at one with your snow, Khyra!

That's a sad story about Shari but we bet she got quite a welcome at Rainbow Bridge and all her pain was gone in an instant.

Safe Transport, Khyra's Mom!

Teddy Bear said...

You look so pretty in your snow, Khyra. So very sad to hear about Shari. There has been too much sadness lately.

Suka said...

hey Khyra,

How did you teleport yourself from outside to inside to back outside?! What a cool trick!

Your photos almost lulled me to sleep. You look so comfy and cozy in your snow bed.

My human and I are very sad to hear of Sheri Johannes' passing. She seems like an amazing human to have rescued, helped, and taken care of so many animals in need. Prayers of peace and comfort to her family and friends, and Peace to her wonderful, giving Soul.


Maggie and Mitch said...

We are so sorry to hear about Shari. She had to be a wonderful person!
We hope your snow NEVER goes away, Khyra!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Cliff and Olivia said...

Watch it with the snoozing. Someone might mistake you for a feline.

We don't think you're crazy. You're just a woofie.

The Thundering Herd said...

Love your snow bed, Khyra, but you said something shocking. You mean this snow may go away! Ack. We expected it to stay forever.

The OP Pack said...

Khyra, you are so smart to make the most of your snow while you have it. That mountain is a great pillow for you. But it was fun to see that you don't just sleep on the snow. A good round of football in the white fluffs is good too.

So sorry to hear about Shari, life is so unfair. We hope Mom's transport goes well.

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Gus said...

You are doing a great job of snow conservation. At this rate, you may have some left for Easter.


Frankie Furter said...

Khyra I am so happy that you are happy.

Alasandra said...

We are purring for Shari Johannes family and friends. How sad that life got to be too much for her.

We will go over what meager words of comfort we can to Poppy's family. Such sad news. ~AFSS

Jazzi said...

YOu always look so good in the snow and you still have lots of snow left you really like laying on the snow?? I love to run, and zip around in it and make it fly in the air. You are too funny

Sorry bout your friend. Thats always the sad part of life. We will go over and offer our condolances.

Cyber-sibes said...

We just saw the update. This is sooo furry sad. Don't know what to say, but we'll go right over.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We are really sorry to hear of all the humans/pups/friends that are no longer with us...
We love seeing your snow pictures Khyra, it is raining cats and dogs here right now...

Big Sloppy Kisses

Ina in Alaska said...

My gosh this week has been a sad one! Love to all xoxoxo

KB said...

Will the sadness ever end? I guess that if we allow ourselves to love, it won't. But, it's worth it in the end, even if it isn't immediately obvious.

I'm so glad Khyra has all that snow to sleep in! I can't imagine curling up in the snow for a nap!

Hank said...

This is so sad, Khyra and mom.

Hugs -

Sarah, Hank and Molly

PS Khyra, as always, you and the snow are a beautiful combination.

Scout 'n Freyja said...

There are absolutely NO WORDS to write that will adequately address what sadness must be in someone's heart when they make the decision to take their own life.

A young life is lost. An advocate for animals is gone. Dogs are seeking a new refuge. Parents mourn. Friends mourn.

Let all of us who do rescue or volunteer or promote responsible care for animals remember that we must take time for ourselves and for our families and that we must nurture our soul.

Let all of us who don't rescue (that's OK, too) give emotional support to those who do and lend a hand when it is possible.

For Shari: May all the dogs I have ever loved carry my coffin, howl at the moonless sky and lie down with me sleeping when I die. ~Erica Jong

Furkidsmom said...

We just visited Poppy's blog - what a rough time they are having :(

Don't you get cold snuggling in that snow???

It has been a bad month, for humans and canines alike. Our thoughts and hugs go out to all of our friends.


Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

This has been a very rough last couple of days. Our hearts go out to everyone who has been touched by the many losses we have experienced recently. As for the snow, if you ever lose yours, we are finally getting some, so you are welcome to visit!

*kissey face*

Stella said...

I just lay on top of the snow, I don't dig a hole like you do, but I like it anyway.

Prayers for your friend Shari and we hope she is at peace.

Blessings on today's transport and a pleasant trip.


Martha and Bailey said...

Oh Khyra, we cannot bear any more sad news - it really is just too sad!
We are so very sorry.

houndstooth said...

Lots of sad losses this week! We did send our condolences to Poppy's family.

I've noticed pictures of you inside and outside lately. I was curious, which do you prefer? The football looks like fun!


dewdana said...

So much sad news theses days. So unfair about Poppy especially for them since the just lost their dad. So very sorry for your rescue friend. :'( Tragic that someone so needed by others could not find what they needed.
As for your snow, I think you have enough to last until June!

Well, I read one doggie's comment that the Rainbow Bridge has been so busy that maybe it will be closed for repairs for a bit. I sure hope so.


Ruby's Raiser said...

We have visited and left our condolences. These are very difficult times.

But we are smiling to see the most beautiful girl on her fluffy white pillow!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

It's been a ruff winter in and around and outside of blogland. I am almost afraid to look anymore.

Khyra, I have to say I have never seen another creature more comfortable in the snow.

Mochi and Mommy said...

There has been too much sadness lately. :(

You look so comfy on your snow bed! :) I wish I had one!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Khyra,
It has been a hard winter for losing dear friends, acquaintances and fellow bloggers that we hardly knew but were deeply loved by their famnilies. Poppy's mom must be devastated by the loses that she has suffered in just a matter of weeks.
Our snow is all just about gone but we have plenty of mud in its' place.
