    Default Otis is one happy boy today

    I don't even know if I can find the words to do this right.

    This morning the FedEx guy rings my doorbell. (kinda cute FedEx guy too... bonus thanks!). He delivers a box addressed "for Otis and all your future fosters. RIP Abby" The note reads "Merry Christmas from those who love you at English Bulldog News! We are so thankful to be a part of your life xx" Inside is this...

    We had a little bit of trouble setting it up. He loved it right out of the box



    Once we got it together he loved it even more



    @desertskybulldogs THANK YOU!! A bed he can't destroy? Maybe I can finally have more than 2 inches of bed to myself?

    Then!! I'm coming home from Target and there is a box on the porch addressed to my buddy O.

    Inside is all of this...





    AND THEN!! as if my day couldn't get any more amazing!

    I open the mail and get this





    Who knew pet insurance companies sent out cards? Suddenly I don't feel like just another policy number to Trupanion.
    As I type this, Otis is laying on his new bed with his new blanket chewing on his Bumble


    (no, this wasn't staged... he doesn't listen well enough to pose pretty for me)

    The other day I got a card from @Vicaroo1000. I also got a signed copy of Bill at Rainbow Bridge. And I'm told that I have another surprise for my Abby coming my way.

    I am speechless. I can't believe that I am so blessed to have you all in my life, to have had all of you to share my sweetie heads life with, to have had your shoulders to cry on and your strength and prayers to hold me up when everything around me was crashing. From almost losing my daughter-in-law, to losing my job, to losing Abby. I can honestly say that I don't think I would have made it without the kindness and support that i have gotten from all of you. These gifts mean more to me than any of you will ever know and Otis? WELL!! Otis is the happiest guy in town today

    I love you guys but Lisa, you're wrong. I am the lucky one around here. Thank you

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    Well..no one deserves a little bit of sunshine more than you Bev. I bet if you follow that ray of sunshine, it is coming from a Beautiful Rainbow Bridge. Playing on that Bridge is a very very special girl. We called her Abby...her friends call her "in charge". We love you Bev and Abby too!

    This is such a beautiful gesture! I'm so sorry for your loss. Selfishly, I sometimes can't bear to read about these serious health issues and sudden losses, and it makes me cry, but I know we all have very important jobs to do as bully parents, and I admire your strength and patience and wisdom.

    EBN is amazing yet again! I remember when Aubrey passed and I kept receiving things in the mail. I was shocked and amazed at the love in this place. Otis is happy, but not just because he's got new stuff... but because he has such a wonderful mom in his life!
