So many of our blog readers often inquire about our two Westies, Percy and Fergus. And so we have some very sad news to share: On November 26th, Percy got quite suddenly seriously ill, and on November 28th he died.

He was an amazing dog…and we miss him like crazy and are still in shock that he is gone.  But he was a gift from our good God and we were blessed to enjoy him for nearly 7 years!  He will be fondly remembered for his amazing donkey kicks, his wolf-like howling, his love of little stuffed piggies and all toys, his spunky independence, and so much more.  The list could go on and on.  He really was one in a million.

Say a prayer for all the Sisters – we miss him so much!IMG_0101

    Oh Sisters, I’m sorry. Many of us know the pain of losing such a wonderful dog. They are so loving and ask little of us. Prayers to you all that your memories wont be as painful in the future. How is Fergus doing? He will need some extra TLC also.
    God bless you all an I hope one day he brings another furry friend your way when it’s time.

    I’m a big animal lover myself and know how sad I was after losing my pet guinea pig, Cairo, who also died rather suddenly from a respiratory illness. You will be in my prayers!

    I am so sorry to hear the sad news about Percy, Sisters. I am sure that Fergus is grieving for him in his own way.

    Pope Benedict does not believe that animals go to heaven but Pope Francis said that they do go to heaven. I hope he is correct.

    Much love and prayers for you, Sisters.

    I hope your kitties are doing well! xx

    My sincere sympathy to all the Sisters on the loss of your beloved Percy. I recently loss our beloved cat after almost 20 years. I share in your sadness. I believe God gives us the gifts of our animal companions as another sign of His love for us.

  14. Deb Huff says:

    Iam so sorry to hear of your loss. Percy was LOVED. May Jesus,Mary, and St Francis bless all of youabundantly with love and peace until you are all reunited again in Heaven. All dogs go to Heaven.Love and Peace to ALL.

  15. Dear Sisters:

    My heartfelt condolences on the loss of your sweet friend and Wessie-Son. They are a light to us, are they not? He is now eagerly awaiting you on the rainbow bridge. Did he suddenly get the Valley Fever? There are so many strange symptoms with this ailment it isn’t always respiratory. I am sure you already have a good vet, I really adore Dr. Michelle at the North Buckeye Animal Hospital she gave such good support when my Zoe became seriously ill.

    Peace and comfort to all of you,

    Shaunna, Duke and Zoe
