Pets Message










‘My home is where my comfortable, clean, warm bed is kept. It is always in the same familiar place


I can choose to lie outside in the sun on my bed under the kitchen table on a chair or on the floor

When there is rain my coat is dry and I am warm


Some of us share a home with dogs, cats and other pets


When I am ill or old and weak Arlene, the happy pet and house sitter my ‘personal assistant’ takes care of me


My food and water bowls are funky and fun so personally chosen especially for me


I cannot open a cupboard the fridge or the tap. Each day my food and water bowls are cleaned then filled by someone I know our pet sitter Arlene


I have a large area to poop on ..... the weekly mowed lawn. Poop is lifted each day by the pet sitter


You will see my toys for play strewn around the garden where I run freely all day


Arlene is friendly and kind keeps me company ensures my safety and all of my comforts


I am free to roam in and around my home without

feelings of stress


I love staying at home while my owners are away


I am content and happily await your return .....’









The dog is not allowed in the house


Ok, the dog is allowed in the house but only in certain rooms


The dog is allowed in all rooms but has to stay off the furniture


The dog can get on the old furniture only


Fine, the dog is allowed on all furniture, but is not allowed to sleep with humans on the bed


Ok, the dog is allowed in the bed but only by invitation


The dog can sleep on the bed whenever he wants but not under the covers


The dog can sleep under the covers by invitation only


The dog can sleep under the covers anytime


Humans must ask permission to sleep under the covers with the dog ….

Dear God to be a good dog these are some of the things I must remember

I will not eat the cats' food before they eat it or after they throw it up

I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, etc., just because I like the smell

The litter box is not a cookie jar

The sofa is not a face towel

The garbage collector is not stealing our stuff


I will not play tug-of-war with dads underwear when he's on the toilet


Sticking my nose into someone's crotch is an unacceptable way of saying 'hello'

I don't need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm under the coffee table

I must shake the rainwater out of my fur before entering the house - not after


I will not come in from outside and immediately drag my butt across the carpet

I will not sit in the middle of the living room and lick my crotch

The cat is not a 'squeaky toy' so when I play with him and he makes that noise it's usually not a good thing

Dear God when I get to Heaven please may I have my testicles back?

Dog’s Bedtime Prayer


Now I lay me down to sleep

The king-sized bed is soft and deep ....

I sleep right in the centre groove

My human beings can hardly move  ....

I’ve trapped their legs, they’re tucked in tight

And here is where I pass the night


No one disturbs me or dares intrude

‘Til morning comes and ‘I want food!’ ....

I sneak up slowly to begin

And nibble on my human’s chin ....

For morning’s here, it’s time to play

I always seem to get my way


So thank you Lord for giving me

This human person that I see ....

The one who hugs me and holds me tight

And shares their bed with me at night




Just this side of ‘rainbow bridge’  earth is connected to heaven ....


When an animal who has been really close to someone here dies they go to rainbow bridge


There are meadows and hills for all our friends so that they can run and play together


There is plenty of food water and sunshine. Our friends are warm and comfortable


All the animals who have been ill or are old are restored to health and  vigour


Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by


They all run and play together


The animals are happy and content except for one small thing  ....

they miss someone who was left behind who was very special to them


The day comes when these animals suddenly stop looking

into the distance their bright eyes are intent eager body quivering with excitement .... 


Suddenly running from the group flying over the green grass legs moving faster and faster because

you have been spotted


When you and your special friends meet you cling together in joyous reunion. The happy kisses rain upon your face. Your hands caress the beloved head  and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your beloved pets so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart


Never to be parted again you cross the Rainbow Bridge together  …..


Animal lives are shorter than human lives


People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life like loving everybody all the time and being nice


Dogs already know how to do that so they don’t have to stay as long



This space is for

new faces of precious pets

who will join this happy page ….

is overjoyed and is now refusing to give

“When a human dies, there is a bridge they must cross to enter into Heaven …. At the head of the  bridge waits every animal that  human ever encountered during their lifetime

The animals based on what they know of this person decide which humans may cross the bridge …. and which are turned away.”

From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's Just a dog," or

"that's a lot of money for just a dog."

They don't understand the distance travelled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."


Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog."

Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog," but I did not once feel slighted.


Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."

"Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure and unbridled joy.

"Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person.

Because of "just a dog," I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog," but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a woman." So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog," just smile--because they "just don't understand."

Louis  Alfie  Barney   Kommetjie & Noordhoek

 ‘Louis & Alfie the cat’ arrived in Kommetjie from

  Britain  with  Mom Linda


 ‘Barney’ is known as the ‘three wheeled dog’ a 

 name  given  to him by a little boy (referring to his 

 only having three legs). He was taken in by Linda

 as  a  foster from TEARS ....


 He now has a British  passport is  a part of the 

 family and  they have all  returned to live back in

 Britain …. Oh yes! The  ‘gorilla’  has gone home too


On their return to Britain Linda had Barney DNA

 tested to identify his breed which the Wisdom Panel

 Insights report shows that Barney is a Russell

 Terrier  Pekingese mix ….


 I spent a lot of time with ‘Linda’s Boys’. Evenings

 ‘Alfie’ and I spent time together while ‘Louis’ the

 swimmer slept at my feet after his twice a day

 retrieving kelp deep water or surfing waves or

 doggie paddled from one splash to the next caused

 by the stones thrown into the ocean. Chasing 

 splashes was his favourite game ….  ‘Barney’ was

 always   content to lie on his back with three legs 

 up in the air after  two long walks a day …


& now

 Louis & Alfie & Barney & the Gorilla are back ....

Duke     Daisy

Our folks got married …. We wore white ribbons to share

their day!

lives with us

Their folks referred to them as the

‘hounds’ …. As their ‘personal assistant’ I learned quickly why so …. Personalities so individual …. Total hooligans …. Yet trained because they were taken to school …. Well mannered except when we were on a walk which was always hilarious not knowing what nonsense they would get up to next …. At night the coziest, most affectionate …. I put you into the crates for your journey, hugged you knowing that I’ll never see you again …. You left your mark on my heart dear ‘Pemba’ and ‘Ezo’ ….
