What a night...

Last night we learned of Freda's passing. So long Freda.

so long Freda

Mom was so sad when she went to sleep but then woke up to this comment...

Marvin has left a new comment on your post "Busy!!":

oh the music is kinda head banging stuff! Or should I say knee trembling!!

I am back. It took a great deal of sad eyes and stuff, but she who must be obeyed has agreed to start being my secretary and editor in chief once more.

I hope you can call in sometimes.

love and many licks, Marvin xxxx

OMDOG, Marvin is coming back to us. Mom's eyes started leaking all over again. We lost one great friend in Freda and from her passing we have been given back our wonderful friend Marvin.

welcome back marvin
Welcome back Marvin.

You should go to each and spread the DWB love. We have such a great community here, in good times and bad.

Oh Joe. Your comment at our blog made Mom leak all over again. Yes, how will her peeps find the falling waters room without her....
We are very happy to see Marvin back though. Mom spent so long as a lurker, and sweet Freda gave her 1,2 1,2 soo many laughs.
And Mom loved reading Marvin's adventures and seeing all the cool pics(specially the one of the dude in the kilt that had blown up! lol-as Jeannie said, hubbahubba)
Like y'all we leak over one, and welcome one back.
Have a good Sunday kids

Hi Joe
I didn't know Freda-- but I was sad to hear about her. I didn't know Marvin either. But I went to visit him and I'll go back. Thanks for letting us doggies know about each other.

Glad your Steelers won. You could never jinx them. (my mom wouldn't put an Obama sticker on her car cause she jinxed Jon Kerry-- she is really bad luck)

oooooooooooh my, I have turned into a pink dog, what with all the blushing.

What a lovely post, you are so kind.

I did not expect this at all, really.

Thank you - this has meant a lot to me, especially as we disappeared so quickly last time.

My Jeannie says "when one door closes, another one opens", I hope dear Freda is looking at us from across the Rainbow Bridge - and she is enjoying her favourite kind of fog - and smiling.

Dog bless dear Freda. May she run free and happy in the fog forever.

love and sad licks, your friend,
Marvin xxxxx
