Waiting – and a Good-bye


As we are headed to bed on a Friday night, The Herd is waiting for the promised 5 inches of snow that we are supposed to find on the ground tomorrow.  As we have mentioned many times, except for a snow in late October, we have been virtually snowless this winter and that is very strange.  We are so hoping for some real snow.


Our deepest condolences.  We are shocked and saddened to lose a new friend – Tori.

Tori has only been with our pal, Jack, over at Cyber-Sibes for a few weeks after the loss of his other sister, Star.  Jack – and Jack’s family – we just want you to know that we are thinking of you and wish you the best during this painful time.

    Snow-what’s that? is that the cold white stuff that falls from the sky?

    I’m so sorry about your doggie-friend, Tory. We didn’t know them, but we can feel your sadness.
    Hope you get some snow soon…it will be the only way we will get a ‘snowy’ Christmas here in South Africa.
    Lots of licks and love

    Any dogs death diminishes me because I am involved
    with dogs. I didn’t know Tori or her brother but I offer my deepest sympathies.

    We are all still in shock here over the sad news about sweet Tori. It is just too much for one family to have to endure. We have sent our sympathies to the family.

    We hope you all woke up to a white covering. We are supposed to get some next week, but Mom is skeptical.

    Woos, the OP Pack

    I am devastated about Tori. We’re all going to miss her so much.

    I hope you get snow tonight!
