She loves to sleep with her "dad". I wish they would make a pet friendly cruise I would love to take them!

F-Mattox:

Thank you for sharing all that about Echo. I find it facinating just how intellegent some birds can be. I guess it doesn't have to be an insult to be called a "bird-brain".

F-Mattox, I want to thank you too. I really enjoyed reading your post about Echo. I am so fascinated by these birds now. I wish I wasn't scared of them.

I'd love to have a parrot or cockatoo. I had a parakeet that I did teach some words to. It takes a lot of patience, but it can be done. The bad thing was, once he started talking, he'd pick up phrases he shouldn't have

Just out of curiosity, for those that use a kennel service, how much is everyone paying these days? We haven't had a pet for a few years & are considering one once again.

Well, what a difference a couple of weeks make. After I posted the picture of our beloved Franklin on March 23, his health steadily went downhill. He became very lethargic and dehydrated. Then on Friday, April 3, he went into complete renal failure. Sadly, after exhausting all medical options, we had Franklin put to sleep on Saturday and buried him yesterday in a coffin that I hand made out of cypress and cedar and carefully lined with royal blue (his favorite color) silk. He was buried with his favorite toy, his favorite brush, a can of tuna, a package of his favorite treats, his favorite collar, and a palm frond from Palm Sunday mass. Franklin had FIV (feline AIDS) and was given only a couple of years to live. We kept him happy and healthy for 10 years following that diagnosis. Cats respond to love and attention and Franklin never disappointed us. We will miss him greatly but it's nice to picture him in a place where he will no longer have to suffer or wait for us to return from a cruise. A supreme being who will remain unnamed has a remarkable way of giving life and taking away life. We look forward to the arrival of our baby girl but, at the same time, we cherish the memory of a friend and family member who taught us all about unconditional love.

Drlivingston, I am so sorry to hear about Franklin. Our pets are truly a part of the family. I do hope you will consider helping one of the less fortunate animals that people have dumped. I know the wounds are deep right now, but the pounds are so full of sweet, loving animals that no one wants. Maybe after a while you could take a look and find one that would appreciate a loving home like Franklin had. There really are no words to ease the sorrow y'all are feeling right now, but please know we care.

Dr. L., my deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear Franklin; as Penny says, our pets are beloved members of our families and their loss is compounded by the fact that their love is so unconditional. I am deeply moved by the way you laid Franklin to rest.

Rich, to answer your question, we paid $19.00 a day the last time we boarded Mollie. She is an 85 pound Golden.
