Thursday Thinking AND Thanking

 A deviation from our normal post format - no PF to start the post - it will be the last image today - as this is to think about and thank ANGEL SUMMI :-(
Here he is with his MUMMI in November 2010 when we got to meet IN THE FUR and FLESH -
 He liked Khyra!
 Of course, she taunted him with her FLUFFI tail!
 Even if his mummi did the Siberian death grip hold when we landed in IA to meet them!
 Back in December of 2007, Khyra had received a special box from her HANDSUMM Fella -

 And all these years later - almost nine if one is khouting -
 The toy is still amongst her khollekhtion -

 Even though Fred is in OCMD, I went out Monday night - and came out to find I was parked next to a Scion with some special magnets -
 PACKERS would be Summi's team - well, Summi's Dad would say that!
 His skEYE as I got close to The Khottage -
 Our khandle for him -


 From our trek to The Tundra -
Khyra is sending safe travels and soft landing North of The Rainbow Bridge -
Khyra wishes she could give his mummi another one of these right now

As you can tell, Khyra's Mom here for today's post - not sure exactly how it all 'happened' but back after I got Khyra - and joined SiberNut - Khyra and I were drawn to the large MALAMUTE from IA - way back, he had helped his dad with some drywall - or should I say, he helped undo some drywall - Khyra found a tool kit on line for him and we sent it off to him - 

From there, our friendship with The Iowa Crew grew and grew - to the point that his mummi conspired in November of 2010 to get us OUT to visit - which we blogged about - it was surli a once in a lifetime experience - and since then, we've had the honor of getting to meet up with his mummi again - his mummi was even lucki enough to meet The Doggy Nanny and Fred!

We talk on a regular basis - and text as wise - so Monday morning it pained me to see one from 630am or so that Summi had a seizure - I replied I hoped it was a one and done - but Shelly replied he had just had another - well, when the call came at 11:23, I was afraid for the news but was prepared for it -

Yes, Summit had gotten his wings and earned his Platinum Harness -

Words fail us - as hard as it is for us to believe, we can only imagine how tough it is for Greg and Shelly - for Kaynh and Ruby - and even for Porchi -

Of course, it's not's just...fur now -

Khyra  and Phyll

So so so sad to hear about Summi on FB. What a cutie pie. I would have enjoyed squishing him silly. Juno would have loved to meet him too. :( Woo are lucky to have had such a lovely boyfriend and pen pal!

We remember your visit to Summi's place, and are so sad to hear that he has left for north of the Bridge. What a great guy!

I cannot believe that toy is still whole!

Wonderful post for Summi and his pawrents. Being around the blogging world for the last 7 or 8 years, I remember so much of your experiences. And the handsomeness of Summi! I was also so shocked and saddened. But he was loved and although now missed, you are correct. Not furever....

We remember your trip to meet Summi and his mom. Such a fun time for you. We can imagine how hard this is for her. We're sad it came time for him to leave. Hugs, purrs and paw taps for his family and yours.

We were so saddened to hear about Summi - those seizures are just horribly evil. We are so sorry he had to cross. We never got to meet him in the furs,but our Mom met his Mom one time with Thunder and she knows why Summi loved her so much. Soft woos and gentle hugs to his family.
