Sad news today, so can I ask a favor?

I just wanted to ask everyone to hug their pets. He was a great animal lover and the only thing he wanted to take with him was his dogs. Since we can't do that, we'll put a picture of them in his coffin. He has asked that any contributions be made to the humane society in lieu of flowers, that is how much it meant to him.
So I just wanted to ask this great community here to say a prayer and give an extra special hug to you dog/kitty.

I will not only hug my pets tonight, I wlll give and receive big sloppy kisses for your father in law.
My best to you!
P.S. Everyone should adopt a pet in Mrs. Spooky pants Father in memorium, don't buy from a a pet store or breeder, there are so may unwanted animals that need a good loving home!

I'm sorry and of course I'll give my Sage lots of love and your family prayers. The poor dogs are going to pretty sad too losing someone who obviously loved them so much.

So sorry about your family's loss. I read your Xmas post and was kinda wondering what happened. It must be a great comfort and relief to know that he died peacefully, at home. (Which is how my dad died, surrounded by his family).
I gave both my chubby kitties big luv hugs today. Well, actually, I had no choice, you see. They're quite demanding.
And big smooches and hugs to his dogs...

Bridget, I totally agree. Shelter animals have just as much love, if not more, than a pure bred. All of ours were homeless animals, it felt good knowing that we gave them a home (although I am sorely tempted by a really cute bengal kitty, but the $800 price tag is turning me completely off).
Masq, Sam and Lucy were very sad today. I think they knew what was happening and what had happened. They weren't their playful selves. They curled up together on the couch and only moved for the pizza crusts.
Camille, I know about those chubby demanding kitty types. We have one chubby one and one well on her way to being chubby. They are both equally demanding! It was a great blessing that he went in his sleep. It would have been nice if we all had been there, but he didn't want it that way. He didn't want this to interfere or cause hardship in anyones life. He has always been that way.
Moon - Thanks! God has blessed me, that much I know. I have wonderful friends (that are right now keeping hubby company while watching Freddy vs Jason) and giving me some peace and time to myself. Plus I have great places like here to lose myself in.
That GV Insane Asylum post made me laugh so hard it felt good!

i've given all of my cats extra love and my wild birds and squirrels extra meals today in honor of your fol... and bridget is right: we should all adopt animals instead of contacting breeders. my favorite cat was a sick little foundling who came to my porch on a hot summer day. each of us can help!
