Old Friends, New Friends, Lucky Charms and Sad Goodbyes.

Well.. what a weekend. I've been catching up with old friends, making new friends and sadly saying goodbye to one friend.

So firstly I would like to pay tribute to my friend Cooper.

Cooper is now in a beautiful place called the Rainbow Bridge. I didn't know Cooper for very long sadly, but I loved to visit his blog and I will miss him very much. Our thoughts are with Coopers Mum and Dad, Don and Jean, please stop by and send them a hug or two.

May your spirit soar sweet Cooper.

So the DWB 2nd Anniversary Chat Pawty has been a blast so far, I have met up with lots of my friends and made new friends. It's been a riot.
The Tanner cam has kept Mum enthralled and ever so slightly in puppy love!!
Ive been keeping Mum up late so she looks kind of rough... well actually she looks kind of rough most days hehehe

Mum has been craving Lucky Charms

You can no longer buy them in the UK and it annoys the hump out of her, so if any of you doggys know of a place here in the UK that sells Lucky Charms.. please let me know so I can cram her mouth full of them and shut her up!!

She settled for Cookie Dough Ice-Cream and ate it ALL.. she didn't even give me so much as a lick of the spoon! The greedy heffer. She claimed it was too late for me to be eating ice-cream!! Talk about double standards! Then she whinged that it hadn't really scratched her itch and she still wanted Lucky Charms... Jeeeze, she will end up the size of a house!!

I also discovered that the Thuglets live in the area that Mum and Dad adopted me from! What a small world it is!! Mum is hoping to get to one of the Pawz fundraisers at some point so it would be nice to meet up with them. They are one handsome bunch!

Well, the beans have a birthday party to go to and I need my walk so for now i will finish... Mum took some photo's of me spark out after the pawty but Dad borrowed her camera today so I will post those later.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Ben xxxx

Ben Buddy!

I'm so sorry about Cooper. We'll go by and let his peeps know we're thinking of them.

Missed talking to you in chat, man. I wasn't there for long, but it sounds like you had a blast (even with your mama jonesin' for those Lucky Charms)!

Just so you know, I voted for you for post of the month. That letter was HIL-AIRE-IOUS! Hope they read the peemail you sent back to them. I'd love to see the look on their faces.

Goober love & smooches,

We were so sad to hear about Cooper. Our hearts go out to his family!
Mom says she hasn't had lucky charms since she was a kid! She used to pick out the marshmallow bits and save them for last!

Love ya lots,

Lady Kaos said...

You can't buy Lucky Charms in the UK? That is really weird. Mom doesn't like Lucky Charms. She says the marshmellows have a weird texture. Your post reminded her she forgot to buy icecream and is now craving cookie dough icecream. Hopefully she'll stop at the store on her way home so I don't have to listen to her whine.
It was great talking to you Friday! I had a blast!!!

The Zoo Crew said...

how sad that you are lucky charms deprived :( we think that is a travesty!!!

it was great chatting with you for a bit this weekend!


Jake of Florida said...

It was fun chatting with you a bit, Ben. We kept getting booted out -- but persevered like true terriers.

We read about Cooper too and sent his Mom a note. It's always sad when one of our pals, new or old, leaves is.

Mango said...

What kind of savage place do you live in with no lucky charms? The horror!

Momma read Cooper's blog and it made her cry. She couldn't get through it. I'll bet he was a good friend.


Sophie Brador said...

Ben! You smokin' hot dude. My mom is going to the grocery store right now. I'm going to make sure she checks for those Lucky Charms. Is it legal to send food across the pond? Are Lucky Charms considered food?

The major life questions us dogs need to contemplate every day. Yeesh.


Sophie Brador said...

Ben! My mom says the grocery store has regular size lucky charms and super gigantic lucky charms and chocolately lucky charms.

Want some?


Gus and Louie said...

That car was Mom's dream too. She has had it since 2005. It is a turbo diesel so it gets like 40+ mpg. She loves it with the gas prices these days...

It was great chatting with you the other day at the Chat Pawty!

Hey Ben,
Nanook and pooka people are back from Egypt. We just left them a thank you for giving us a tip about the Mars King coat rake. Dad ordered on Sunday after you sent us to their website during the chat. The rake arrived today and dad tried it out on Jubal and Homer. He's gonna do us out on the deck tomorrow. Guess what" Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. You'll never guess - me and Shiloh are going to Orlando FLORIDA for a week. We'll be staying in a pet resort while mom, dad, sarah, Bill, Caitlin, Kyle, Chuck and Michelle and her newphew are staying at some place called Disney World. We'll be taking notes for the blog:
Sorry to hear about Cooper and Lacy going to the Bridge. Chance and Gordon from our family have both gone there too within the last six months. It's always sad to lose a family member. Well write when we get back if we don't have too bad of a sunburn.

Georgeous said...

Hi Ben, did your Mum find some lucky charms? My skin Dad was asking the other day. he said he emailed her a link where she could get them online. I think it was before I started blogging, your email was playing up though.

You got those Doggles yet? Can't wait to see you in them.
Love George
