Dear Norma, Although I was already aware of the sad news of Woogie getting his wings, reading your post here has brought on an onslaught of tears. What a tender account of his last day with you. I hope that in time you will find comfort in the knowledge that he was in your arms, enjoying his last tummy tickles when he made his journey. And just think ~ he made that journey on Rebel's back, squealing and giggling all the way to the Rainbow Bridge. Not only did he have a fantastic life with you, but he couldn't have hoped for a better exit. I know your heart is breaking, but he will send you a sign to let you know he is happy and healthy, and he has even been reunited with his little leggy! Your description of Woogie's recovery and his strong spirit was wonderful. I know it only gives us a small peek into life with such an adorable little guy, but I thank you for that little glimpse. My heart aches for you. Woogie had such a wonderful life with you, and I know he holds a very special and warm spot in your heart forever. Bless you and Eddie for loving him so well, and for giving him such a wonderful home. No mater how long they're with us, it's never long enough. As I was typing that last paragraph, I heard T.J. meowing loudly at the bottom of the stairs. All of a sudden, he made a terrible noise that terrified me. I went to check on him, and he had fallen on his way up to see me. Poor, wobbly old guy. He's happy though, and eating and enjoying making biscuits for a good portion of every day. I know that every day with him is a gift, and treasure him with all my heart. I will cuddle him just a little closer tonight, thinking of you and Woogie. Squillions of virtual hugs are coming your way tonight, my dear friend. xoxoxo
