Hello all,

I last posted about a year ago... that being a rough one where we lost two old dogs, Suzie and Gracie, as well as a young cat, Buddy. My wife and I took a long time to deal with it all... still dealing with it, but along the way three new companions came into our lives.

Laura found Ozzie the Cat in a home that was recently vacant, but the former tenants "forgot" a cat in the basement for a couple weeks with nothing but an open toilet to drink from. Other than being dirty and underfed, he was otherwise fairly healthy but needed neutering, chipping, de-flea-ing, etc. That was in June of 2013. He strongly resembles Buddy and we sometimes find ourselves calling him that. He has since put on some healthy weight and gets along well with the other cats.

After months of discussion, we decided to adopt two Jack Russells, Enzo and Dino, from a local Chicago rescue, Fabulous Fidos. Enzo, the larger of the two, seems more mature, whereas Dino is more energetic and has issues from being stuck in cages for a year plus, and probably some abuse from former owner. The rescue has many volunteers that took them to twice-weekly trainings, which got them out of their cages and helped them socialize with people and other dogs -- a HUGE plus.

BTW, I believe the names come from the founder of the Ferrari car company, Enzo Ferrari, and his son, Dino. The Ferrari company also named cars after the father and son.

That brings our critter count back to five, including two cats we've had for a long time, Kinte and JJ.

Hi, John, please permit me to offer you and your wife my sincerest congratulations on your new family members Ozzie, Enzo, and Dino. There is no doubt that your beloved Buddy, Suzie, and Gracie guided your paths to the moment in time when you and your wife knew beyond all shadow of a doubt that these precious homeless waifs would only thrive with you as their Forever Mom and Dad.

Thank you so very much for sharing this wonderful news with us, John. It is also great news that your precious Kinte and JJ are doing well.

I hope today is treating you, Laura, and each of your precious companions kindly, John, and that you will have a peaceful evening blessed with your beloved Buddy's, Suzie's, and Gracie's sweet Living Spirits to comfort you. Please know you, Laura, and your precious companions are in my thoughts and prayers, and please let us know how you are doing.

Peace and blessings,

In heaven's perfect garden there is no grief or pain, and all of God's creation join the angels' sweet refrain.

The most blessed way I have of knowing God's comforting love and grace is to look into the eyes and heart of God's creatures' sweet angelic face.
