Fierce Fighter Day

We know that this is the Week of Pearl, but when Mommy saw that Whiskers & Purrs were doing Fierce Fighter Day she said we should do this instead. She got all sentimental (emphasis on mental) and wanted to introduce you all to our brother and sister that went before - the original P and B.

This is Purdy


and this is Basil


They both died of lymphoma, within just a few months of one another. Purdy went to the bridge in September of 2005 and Basil went in January of 2006. As much as Mommy and Daddy wanted to fight, both Purdy and Basil wanted to go to the bridge. So they let them go with as much peace and dignity as they could.

Purdy and Basil's ashes are still home with us, and there isn't a day that goes by that Mommy and Daddy don't think about them and love them.

So here's to all the ones that went before, all the ones that live in our Mommy and Daddy's hearts forever.

- Pearl, Bert and Jake

Both of them look so sweet. How terrible to lose them to this horrible illness. Those are lovely pictures. I'm sure Pearl understands!
