OPY, Run Free

I could not believe the news of Opy's trip to the Rainbow Bridge when I got a chance to get on the computer. 
My heart breaks.  The Queen of DWB has joined the King, Charlie- where the sun always shines, where they are young painfree and can have all theMc nuggets and full happy meals-fries, all the cheeseburgers they want.  Heck Filet mignon if they so wish.
Opy was not so Gruff really.  That is why I love this picture of her smiling. She and her King of DWB, Charlie, leave a legacy that few if any dogs can claim.  (With the help of Brooke and Gregg), they began a family, a community with a kinship I've never seen among people from all over the globe.  A family that shores oneanother up when needed-giving comfort(which I have been the recipient of when my mom died.  and for reasons I cannot explain, it helps.) and when needed pulls together to help folks out in other ways.
The Texas Sundogs bow in respect and will howl to the Heavens tonight and many nights. 
I, Jamie, the human, will send prayers and hold Brooke and Gregg very tightly in my heart. God Bless y'all my Aussie friends.  You are being sent hugs from around the world and I only wish that there was something, anything that I/we could do.
so much joy, so much pain "when you give your heart to a DOG to tear".
Bye for now dear OPY.  Just for now.  BJP, try to do all you can to help out your mom and dad.  I know you will miss her too.
Sad, sad licks and hugs
Jamie and the Texas Sundogs

Oh, said what we felt in our's so true...Charlie and Opy (G&B) did create something hoooge...way bigger than the sum of all its parts...

Mumsie will call your mom when her head is slightly more attached to her body...

Thanks for a fabulous tribute...
