Our bags have been packed for a long time, waiting on Mom and Dad to make the big move, and the moving van is on speed dial but so far, Mom and Dad just walk around the luggage and ignore the phone.  Maybe its cos they have to work and make real money, or maybe its because living in Blogville, although one of the greatest places on earth that we know of, can sometimes be harder than the realworldville that we live in right now.

In the real world Mom has her family, and kids, and grandkids and of course us.  She has a few good friends that put up with her love of pugs...  her realworldville is pretty small..... BUT Blogville is huge, and we have lots of friends,  and people are kind and caring and they share the same heart like my mom.  Thats the upside but remember for an UP to be an UP there must also be a DOWN.

Its hard to watch our friends take breaks, only to wonder if they will return.  Its hard to watch our friends cross over to the rainbow bridge, and understand in our hearts how their family left behind is feeling. We become invested in each of our friends so their lives merge into ours at times.

Mom never knew one year ago today that by posting her first blog ever she would be stepping into a place that loves us unconditionally, accepts our anger at loss, laughs at our stories, and cares about each of us deeply.  What a gift....what a wonderful gift.

So I guess we have to stay in the realworldville a little longer,.... cos you know why......the real world needs the  blogville peoples to do the rescuing, to keep them kind, and loving towards all us the four legged babies, to have big dreams about all of us having forever homes and to make them help with the animal victims when there was been a disaster.....and I suppose to laugh at us sometimes also.  Heck, just come on over to our house, its crazy sometimes.......stella rose


  1. Bravo.....hip...hip....hooray we are so there with you. We echo your sentiments whole heartedly. Everything you say has touched a nerve with us. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. One year goes by so quick Stella Rose! Many congrats to your mom on setting up this site and for all of us to cross paths. Blogville is quite the special land, dontcha think?

  4. We could have written these same words! Mom said just the other day that if heaven was half as good as Blogville that it will be wonderful! When we first moved to Blogville we wondered what it was about but in no time at all people and dogs gathered around and welcomed us! No place is more supportive than Blogville! We love Blogville and all our friends and furrends!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  7. Howdy Everybuddy, we totally agree with you. We love Blogville and all it's residents. It is a loving and wonderful community. You know, when our brother Brucey started his blog, he had only made four posts and then passed to the Rainbow bridge and we received 35 comments of sympathy from people we hadn't even met! Mum was totally floored by the support. Now we know lots of those friends and have made many more (including you dear mates). So glad you found Blogville. Have a wonderful weekend.
    No worries, and LOVE, Stella and Rory
