Our hearts are shattered....we learned this morning that Poppy of Airedale Heaven has gone to the Bridge last night.


Lana's husband just died last week...

We will be spending the day in sorrow and prayer for them to find the strength they need.

So very, very sad....

We have been in shock since we heard of Poppy's passing. We just can't believe this is happening to poor Lana. We wish we could do something.

Faya said...

We are devastated. VĂ©ronique cannot stop crying. Life is so unfair.

Koobuss said...

Oh No! How awful! Poor Lana, to get hit with a double whammy like this! Life is so unfair. How much can one person take?

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses to Help Wash Away the Tears,
Koobie and Mom

Dennis the Vizsla said...

I know, we were totally shocked.

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Life can be so cruel. We still cannot believe this has happened to Lana.

If only we could do something to help.

Lorenza said...

We could not believe it when we read about Poppy.
We have been thinking of Lana and the girls all day.
Take care

Gus said...

Thank you, Marilyn! I need all the strength I can get, right now. I guess I will never be able to make sense of it, but knowing that people (and dogs) are praying for us does help! Thanks again!

Lana and the 2 remaining P's

Butchy and Snickers said...

We just can't believe Poppy has left us & her family. It's so sad that this happened so soon for Lana & the girls. It's only been 3 months today that we lost Snickers & Mama still bawls her eyes out and it seems like she has cried just about every day this week for another blogging pal that has left us for the bridge. Things seem so unfair sometimes.

TwoSpecialWires said...

This is one of those times when words simply can't be expressed to explain life. All we know is, we are very sad, we wish we could do or say something to help, and we are glad that we never seem to run out of any room in our hearts for more love, support and prayer.

Your post is lovely, and the header made Moma gasp then cry.

Jake and Fergi and family

Keisha said...

I has a sad. I am sendin love to Ms. Lana.

Eric said...

We posted a little tribute to wee Hamish yesterday and now this tragic news. Your tribute was lovely and the header, wonderful and moving. Too sad for words, poor, poor Lana. Life is so unfair sometimes. Our hearts go out to her.

Love B + Eric

Jake of Florida said...

We just learned this morning of Lana's sad loss. All we can think to feel a bit of comfort is that her husband needed his Poppy. But that is sad consolation.

Your poppy header was inspirational. "In Flanders Field where poppies grow..."

Love you!!!!

Joan and Jake and Just Harry

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

This sadness is becoming unbearable. Can not even imagine the deep pain Lana is going through. Your poppy field masthead is so beautiful and such a lovley tribute to Poppy,Stan and family.

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

we went on over thanks guys

The OP Pack said...

Those are some beautiful flowers for Poppy and her Mom. It seems so unfair that Lana has had to deal with so much all at once. She is in our thoughts and prayers.

Sometimes life is very hard indeed.

Hey guys and me Laciecakes!
I've been away from the blogs for a few days and look what happens! I cannot believe this---such a terrible sad, sad time. We've had too many of those lately. Me mom shed some tears on me head...again.

Thanks to your mom, me mom feels more confident about me muffer (fur mom) coming to stay. She is a drill sargeant-yeesh! I have been quite the lover and not a fighter. Ask Laciecakes-I'm a lova!!! We have had great interaction today. She goes to the groomer tomorrow while I'm at daycare (heehee) and the vet on Wednesday (heehee).

Laciecakes, your rump has nothin' on me muffur's by the way!

Irish Love,

Sunshade said...

WE were sadden by the news too.... Sigh... Poppy the sweet girl wanted to keep her daddy company I guess so he wouldn't get too lonely... I hope Penny and Patches stay for a long long time to keep Lana company....

Sorry I should have msged you yesterday, we got your package yesterday!!!!! It didn't get lost, but omg it sure takes a long time to come to Canada! Mum's camera memory card is full from attending Olympic events, but once she clears them out she's gonna let us open the pressies. Thank you so much!!!

ps. I am almost 6 times heavier than you. Yes, I don't know why they call you the big caboose.....hehe. You, gurrrrl, will definitely be the one I hand my torch to when the time comes.

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Dear Laciecakes,

Hey me doll. I think your plan might be nice for me muffur and we can try it, BUT, me thinks I have a better one.......

Eric has been commenting in such a way that me thinks he want a date with me muffur. Oh, and when he sees va va voom! She had her makeover today, and she is foxy. He MUST like plus-sized models though.

Anyway, me thinks if we can get them to go away for the weekend, we can still get together (with your blender, of course). Me thinks she'll like you. I mean you can talk fashion (she's a model...she is going to blog about that later), and you can talk girlie things.

We'll work it out. Don't you worry one second, me love. Oh, and tell Stan that I hope that Scruff gets what's comin' to him soon enough.

Talk to you soon.
Irish Love,


That was horrible. I can't imagine the difficult time she is going thru... we sent our pawsitive thoughts to them as well.
