We hardly ever post over the weekend, but something kept telling our Mom that she needed to check our blog yesterday and that is when we saw that Mr. Pip went to live at the bridge.  We are all very sad even though we know we should be happy that he lived such a great life and has so many friends that will miss him.

We were so happy when Mr. Pip decided to come to Iowa to visit us on his bucket tour along with Puddles.  We planned all kinds of fun things for us to do together, and they even stayed over a little longer cos of some legal problems that came up.  Today we were re-reading that post and at the very end of our story there was a time-worn note that Mr. Pip left on my pillow after they sneaked drove away.  We wanted to share it again with you.

We will remember you always and see you in the nights sky.  Tell Trudie and Sammer hi for us, and that we love them always.

  5. I read about Pip's passing on Facebook via Feeling Beachie but I wanted to pretend it wasn't true for a few days. It's too heart breaking to bear! That little man was a hoot and so cute too. I'm going to visit his blog in a bit!

  6. Mr. Pip was a special guy and touched a lot of hearts. We'll all miss him!

    PeeS: Yes, you sent me your bonfire picture already! It'll be a fun night!

  7. Mr Pip- was one of a kind,,,, He will love forever in our hearts.

  8. Pip was a special guy and loved by all. He lived life to the fullest and his note to you says it all

  13. A beautiful tribute. We all loved Pip.

  14. Our eyes have been so leaky all weekend. We didn't know him as well as many others, but he was such a presence and it is always sad when a friend goes to the bridge. Lee and Phod

  15. Thank you for this lovely post! Pip had such an amazing time in Iowa and that note ...yep, that was how Pip lived. I know Pip and Sammer and Trudie are living it up at the bridge - hopefully, he's not causing too much trouble!

    I can't thank all of you enough. All these lovely, heartfelt posts and wonderful comments are helping SO MUCH! It was so sad to come home after work to an empty house - no Pip. But this post really cheered me up, thank you!
