Take the kids to get pumpkins, or a new puppy.


Oh, my dear Carin. What an awful blow. I'm so sorry.

perhaps you could get crackin' on the most craptacular Halloween display evah!


Crap. That totally blows, Carin. I'm so sorry. Poor Greta. It was good that she had all of that time with you all after the accident. She knew how much you all loved her and she's up in doggie heaven right now telling all the other dogs that they got gypped because she had the best people.


"Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been
especially close to someone here,
that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills
for all of our special friends
so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine,
and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old
are restored to health and vigor;
those who were hurt or maimed
are made whole and strong again,
just as we remember them
in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content,
except for one small thing;
they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together,
but the day comes when one suddenly stops
and looks into the distance.
Her bright eyes are intent;
Her eager body quivers.
Suddenly she begins to run from the group,
flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet,
you cling together in joyous reunion,
never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face;
your hands again caress the beloved head,
and you look once more
into the trusting eyes of your pet,
so long gone from your life
but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...."

That is perfect.
