in thread (Email Removed) whittled the following words:
did you post something to expire and it disappeared? anyone know how that works?

When there is a loss and there are no words that can express, posters often send a blank TRIBUTE salute post in honor of the dog gone from our lives.
First -
Debbie- sigh, hug
be good to yourself, stay strong.
I could imagine that some of the dogs we've hosted might be there, some not.
I guess, it'd be up to the dog waiting, who it'd be waiting for. It might be not even
a human it waits for. It is a comforting concept, Rainbow Bridge, and a beautiful poem.
Wouldn't both owners have to die simultaneously for this choice to be made?
Who's to say they couldn't greet both at their passings. Might say hello to first,
but then wait for the second. Then make sure you meet beyond?

I know a couple of unplanned adoptions who did not work out I don't expect to see,
but a packfull of other critters, I do hope to.
Paula, ask your chi:
so they gonna crate humans and put shock collars on them if they don't get along?
pickup their poop? (do spirits even eliminate?)
Enjoy This Day!

Not at all a jab at Diddy, because I know she's only one of several who do this, but I don't really care for it. If you can't think of anything to say that's fine, don't post. But opening blank post after blank post is just sort of annoying after awhile.
and yes, I realize that's just my opinion. Others may disagree, which is fine. If I personally lose a pet and choose to post that loss here, I would not want a bunch of blank posts. Even a simple "I'm sorry" will do...
My little chi-mix Dolly had a suspected stroke on Tuesday, and I let her go Wednesday (http://member.newsguy.com/~dasnews ). Boy, the house is way too quiet without her - she was the constant chatterer, grumbler, had an opinion on everything.>>

I'm sorry about Dolly.

Anyway, all my critters had previous owners, some of who ... so the pet could be with all its beloved owners?

Our chi tells me that pets will rule the afterlife, as it should have been in this life, but with ... together to be with the dog. If they don't get along, they will have to either be trained or managed.

I love this! Yeah, this is how I'll envision it (although it would mean having to get along with my mother, but hopefully she's more mentally stable in death than she was in life). But then, how do you handle multiple pets? Which pet gets the person?

Thank you, everyone, for all the condolences (Diddy, I'm one of the folks who doesn't mind the blank posts - I appreciate the sentiment behind them).
I'm adjusting . . . it's weird that it only takes about 5 minutes now to feed everyone, instead of the 1/2 to an hour it took mix the various foods that Dolly liked, entice her to eat, then give her all her meds. Still way too quiet.
I've got to stop browing petfinder - I sent an inquiry about this little guy, , but he's got an adoption pending, and I'm kind of relieved - I need to give myself a bit more time to mourn.

You've never owned a chi, have you? They are absolutely sure that everyone will do their bidding just because they bid it and they don't pick up anyone's poop. They will just have more people to wait on them and pick up their poop in heaven.

She says the chi's get first pick in the case of multiple pets, of course. As for your mother, perhaps the pets will allow you to live in separate wings of their celestial mansions.

Chi and mini poodle mix? That mix wouldn't wait for heaven. You'd have to turn over the keys to your house right now! He is pretty cute, though. When the time is right, you'll find the right dog and that right dog will be available. You can avoid the issue of needing more time to mourn but not liking the relative quiet by agreeing to foster a dog only temporarily like I did when I was too devastated by Diva's loss to even think about adopting another dog.

Of course, in my case it didn't work out that well. But Molly doesn't mind that I'm such a big fat sucker that everybody around here knew she was staying almost immediately. OTOH, it made it so the dog who was right came into my life when the time was right even though I didn't realize yet that the time was right. Diva could never be replaced, but Molly was the perfect fit for growing a new part of my heart so I wouldn't notice the part Diva took with her as much.
