Anipal Photo Hunt #12: All Souls' Day

Another great subject for the weekly anipal photo hunt hop, The All Saints Day and All Souls Day traditions are wonderful and mom says humans like to think about their loved ones waiting for them in heaven. But it is also a great time to think about those beloved animals who are waiting at the bridge for us. I am thinking about all my pals in the anipal Twitter community that I have lost in the year and a half since I've been on Twitter.

Of course, foremost in our memories now is our dear sweet Majel who went to the bridge in early September.

While the rest of these animals were before my time, they have a special place in my humans' hearts so I wanted to include them.

There is Majel's beautiful sister who was named Isis (Isis is on the left - too bad you can't see their really nice calico tails):

There was Christie:

There was Skipper:

Mom at one point had three doggies when she had Skipper and Christie but she can't find any pictures of the third one, an Irish Setter named Red. You might notice that the animal naming got a little more creative when dad came onto the scene. When we were looking through the pictures I also noticed that mom's picture taking has gotten better since there were lots of half chopped off dogs in those pictures.

These were all rescue pets - the kind less fortunate than me where they had to go to a shelter before they found their furever homes.

There were other pets we just can't find pictures of - family pets like BoBo, Jingles, Happy.

I will tell you a secret about BoBo. He was mom's dad's dog and went everywhere with him. BoBo was cremated when he died and her dad requested that when he died BoBo's ashes be mixed with his. They are now in the urn together in a special place in Church (the BoBo part is kind of a secret from the church people because some might not understand) just like they are together in heaven.
