Louisdog's This and That

Befur I start with This and That, Mimi, Hazuzu and I want to say a bit about Dory, who has crossed the rainbow bridge. This is a sad, sad day fur Blogville and for the wider world, as well. Dory was a beautifur dog with a beautifur soul. She loved her furever family and she loved life. We are so sad today.

We will keep precious Dory in our hearts.

It's time again fur a bit of this and a lot of that. Or a bit of that and a lot of this. Whichever it is, it is today.


When I visited Victoria a couple of weeks ago to see Grandma Rose, I came upon this statue of St. Francis in the garden of Grandma's Residential Care facility. I just had to have a sniff!
St. Francis loved all anipals

Here is some dog wisdom that is good fur peeps:


Yesterday we went to the park where we met a Newfoundland dog who is HUGE. His peeps say he eats more than they do. Is that possible?


Hazuzu attended a pawty with the Cat Scouts today. It was an Arabian Nights theme pawty to celebrate the April birthday and gotcha days for Cat Scouts. They do it every month. He was so excited! Fur the furst time in his life, the kitty is becoming sociable. Here are a couple of photos so you can see why he is so happy.

I don't know about you, butt I can't wait fur the Beach Blanket Bingo Dance. Mimi is so old that she remembers Frankie Avalon. Anypaw, I want to ask my grrrlfurend CRICKET if she will go with me. Cricket and I always have a grrreat time together. She says she loves me so I think she will come!

Let's dance!

Well that is that fur This and That.

    Oh the beach pawty will be a bit empty in one corner, but Blogville knows how to rally at such times... YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Lady was going to get herself organized for your earth day and the beach party yesterday but after learning about Dory just couldn't. Sad day in Blogville for sure.

  3. You got to meet St Francis and a Newfie?!? Wow!

  4. We had fun reading about this and that. Hazuzu sure has been busy lately! Love the costume!

  5. I love This and That and your beautiful words about Dory. I know your memories will bring you and everyone who knew her great comfort.

  6. So sad to hear about Dory.

  7. Your words about sweet Dory are lovely Louis. We did not really know Dory very well but DO know that she was so very loved by all of Blogville as the outpouring of messages everywhere show. We know she's at rest in a beautiful place now. Angel Sammy will stop over and say hello to her for everyone. Hazuzu seems to be enjoying Cat Scouts - it's a totally FUN place for us kitties. I hope he has as much fun there as my big brother Angel Sam has had all these years. That woofie you met is as big as a small house! WOW!

    Love, Teddy

  8. We are also very sad about Dory - she had to leave us much too soon.

    WOW, that Newfie IS a very BIG boy.

  10. We have a statue of St. Francis in our front garden, by Cinderella's rose bush and the memorial stones for her and Scribbles. Momma thought he was a good guardian for them.

  11. Wow - that is one huge Newfie! We love the dog wisdom and it sure could apply to the peeps too!

  12. Winnie the Pooh was one wise bear. Dory left her itty bitty paw prints on the hearts of all her friends.

    Years ago we had a blogging friend Remington who was Newfie...he was huge too.
    Hugs madi your bfff
