Pipo & Dalton: & Remembering Mr Jack Freckles

We are trying hard here to get back into a sense of normalcy here...its empty and quiet without MrJackFreckles to care for. Dalton is not a quiet pup, and Pipo often has much to say, but most of you will know what we mean when we say its quiet here.
We want to thank all of you who came by to give out their kind and comforting words, woofs and purrs. They are all so much appreciated. And also for the many emails, FB messages, and tribute posts, both in Blogville and on FB. Many of you sent cards, and 'badges'/mementos; they are all beautiful. Thank you once again.
Sorry if we have been a bit inactive of late...
We are going to make another special post just to remember and honor MJF, but that will come later.
Here are the memento images as we have them; in no particular order...

Since its MardiGras today, here are some old selfies from way back. We didn't have Dalton then, so we do not have any of him in those vibrant colors, MOL/BOL! He did make some Valentine's Day pictures, we will show you those soon:)

We have had a lot of snow...
Almost 10 inches

A good 13 inches...

A path for Dalton

Dalton left his trails...and tracks.
Snow on my schnooter!

Pipo is cheering on the Canadian Team at the Olympics...
Go, Team Canada...and well, since we live in the USA, Go Team USA!!!

 And one last glimpse of MrJackFreckles, remembering that tomorrow is Valentine's Day.
Feb 2017
And you know, its also another special day around here: Pipo has his 13th Gotcha Day! Yippee!!!
More to come...

We also made some cards, life goes on, and we didn't want to ignore these special furry ones.

    1. We live in Michigan. Pawppy comes from Washington DC, Petcretary comes from Southern Ontario.

  2. Those are lovely tributes from the friends of Mr.Jack Freckles. The photos are lovely too.

  3. Such lovely memories of dear Mr Freckles.
    We know how much he meant to you and how much you will miss him.
    We send lots of comforting purrs and hugs.
    Purrs Georgia,Julie and JJ
    and mum Nancy

  4. We know how hard it is, but you will find your new normal. Continued purrs for you all.


    1. Thanks.
      Dalton is making sure of that, with all his naughty antics, MOL! Pipo is trying to get attention at the dinnertime table...he nevfur did that before.

  5. We totally understand when you say it is so empty and quiet around the house. Mom has felt that everyday since Lily passed. Like Lily, MJF had a big personality. We absolutely love all the photos you shared of him here. We really are going to miss that sweet face. You are in all of our hearts as you grieve. Sending lots of love, purrs and prayers. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer and Mom Janet 💐💖

    1. Thanks so much for these kind words.
      MJF is the sixth Angel in this furmily, but its never easy as you know...even when they have had a full and long life, its not ever long enough...but ah...he just wasn't able to hang in there, though it could have been done, it would have been so very selfish and just prolonged his misery...

  6. hugs and potp to you... I often wish to live closer to be there when dark clouds of sorrows appear....

    1. Thank you.
      The virtual hugs are felt just as if you were here to do it...and so much better, cause look how far they have traveled!

  7. Purrs to you - I know how much you miss MJF! <3

  8. Oh do we understand and we're all sending love and hugs to you.

  9. Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end. God’s Love. On this Valentine's Day we wish you all the good memories that come in between.
    Happy Valentine's Day
    Sweet William The Scot

    1. Tabbies, there is so much love...and MJF is loved forever...that will never be taken from us the way he had to leave us.

      Pipo mews his thanks, too...and Dalton gives a good waggle.

  11. Such a fine display of our love and friendship for Mr Jack Freckles..... it brings tears of sadness and then joy at all the fond memories and pleasure given. And whilst you have memories and love, you will never be alone.... Sending you all our love and support and purrs to heal the loss.
    Erin and staff

  12. We are so late at stopping by to comment. We loved all the pcitures of MJF in his Mardi gras outfit and his valentines and Mommy says she will miss him so furry much! We are looking forward to Dalton picking up the torch!
    Its tough to do Dalton, I shall never be like Queen Nellie but I shall be the best Marvelous I can as will you! And Pipo my man...you ROCK!
    Have a Marvelous Day!

    1. Dalton pick up the torch...oh, MY...those are big paw prints to walk in...maybe eventually...he needs to became way more confident. He vaccilates between timidity such that he piddles if you look/touch him...and crazy guarding behavior..he barks and chases Pawppy if petcretary is around. (even if pawppy just gave him a treat or his meal.) Sigh...lots of work to do here...good thing, it keeps petcretary fully occupied, MOL!

  13. I am so sorry about Mr Jack Freckles. Why a shining star he has been in the selfies and he will be missed.

    Our condolences to you all.


    1. Thanks, yes for sure he is missed. Maybe some flashback selfies now and then might be a good thing...

  14. Lovely tributes to Mr Jack Freckles and his friends. Purrs and hugs

  15. We loved seeing all those beautiful pictures! What a great pup MJF was, and we miss him a lot!

  16. We enjoyed seeing all the tributes to MJF. Momma sees the one she your momma over on that Facebook site. We all miss MJF and spend special hugs to all.
