The last three weeks have been interesting in the Neal household; to say the least.

Jack, Brandee and I had been leading a relatively normal life just enjoying our freedom. And then we got insane! Yep, we rescued a puppy and kitten from the local animal shelter. Meet Gracie (puppy) and Bleu (kitten).

 

Jackson Update

First of all, my best boy, Jackson, deserves the most credit for being the greatest older bubby to his sissies. Jack was actually a younger bubby with Bella – and she trained him well. Now that Jack is the elder animal he has been such a caring and terrific brother to his two new sisters. Jack, Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you that you can’t believe it!

 

Gracie Update

When Brandee and I thought that we want to bring some energy into the Neal household, we got exactly what we wanted with Graciela. She is every bit of what we had hoped and then-some. Gracie loves to play with both Jack and Bleu but in distinctly different fashions which is interesting to observe.

For example, with Bleu (since she is a small 2 lb. kitten), Gracie is very gentle and cuddly when they play together. It’s amazing to watch these two play together especially since they were rescued/adopted from the same animal shelter on the same day.  It’s almost like they have some sense of a kindred-spirit of sisters. However, when Gracie plays with Jack the ruff-ness (pun intended) is intensified to match his strength. Jack and Gracie love to play tug-of-war with various dog-toys we have. It’s so much fun for us humans to watch but also very healthy for them to play nicely for their body and spirit.

Jack has ‘Gracieusly’ (pun intended again) accepted Gracie as his younger sister well. He has been such a good boy that I can’t be prouder of him.

 

Bleu Update

Our youngest family member, at only seven weeks old, is Miss Bleu Neal. Although she barely weighs 2 pounds and is just a bit larger than the palm of your hand, she is the one person that rules our house for sure.

One of the most heartwarming things to see is when Bleu and Jack play together. You might think this would be an odd-mix with a 100-lb. dog and 2-lb. kitten but they play together so nicely that it’s beautiful.

Bleu is also extremely attached to her sister, Miss Graciela Neal. This is clearly evident in their many cuddle events or the often-playful fake-fighting sessions they enjoy together. It’s very humorous and highly entertaining.

 

Fish Update

We have no update other than we are alive and ignored 😊. However, seriously, I love to pay some extra special attention to our two goldfish, two catfish and one algae-eater and they appear to be doing just fine in their large habitat.

 

Thanks for your time reading this notice from the Neal Family Animal Home,

  • The Neal’s

Today, May 27th, 2017 is a bittersweet reflection for Brandee, Jackson and I. This day, one month ago, our beloved sweetie, Baby Bella, went to Pet Heaven. We are so happy that she is pain-free again, has regained her youthful spirit and is among great dearly passed friends and family at Rainbow Bridge. This is not a sad time; yet it is a time to celebrate a great life and honor the terrific memory, as well as on-going legacy, of our furr-ball cuddly Baby Bella.

This Memorial Day Weekend I know Bella wants to send a special message to all the brave and lovely people that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our Country lioresal 25 mg. This is a message of a simple “Thank You” for your sacrifice – you are true hero’s.

While we miss Bella-ringa tremendously we’re at-ease that she is now with fantastic veterans such as Uncle Gene, Uncle Carl, my second-father Jack and, of course my lovely father, Floyd. These men all were such great patriots and loved our country.

From the Neal Family (including Bella and Misty) we encourage everyone to have a fun and safe Memorial Day Weekend. Enjoy yourself (within reason 😊) yet pause to reflect and give respect to those that have given us this great privilege to celebrate this weekend.

Rejoicing Bella’s terrific legacy on Memorial Day weekend 2017

Bella Legacy

May 22nd, 2017

To: Our best daughter and sister

From: Daddy and Jackson

Re: Bella Legacy

 

Dear Sweet Baby,

I write this letter on behalf of Jack and myself because we want to be absolutely clear in our message. While our house is full of new energy and happiness with Bleu and Gracie for sure this, by no means possible, is a replacement for you. We miss you so much.

Ever since you went to Pet Heaven I have been paying extra special attention to Jackson; and he needs it. Although your new sissies provide both Jack and I enjoyment, honestly, it’s still a tough adjustment. It’s clear to both Jack and I that there is no replacing you, and that was never the intention; as you well know. Brandee and I are happy to provide a home for needy animals and so proud to do-so. However, your legacy is strong, as it should-be.

Speaking of your legacy, there are several things that are constant reminders of you that give Jack and I such heart-warming memories.

First, every time Bleu comes flying off of your cat-activity and lands with a thump on the floor both bubby and I have an instinctive reaction to look for you.

Secondly, as often as we can, bub and I lay down on the floor and cuddle together. It’s a bit of comfort knowing that we got to cuddle with you so often. I, as well as Mommy, know for sure that the last few months with you were so very special. It was so great to see you and Mommy bond so closely in such unfortunate circumstances.

Sissy, you are the best and I want you to know that Jackson and I really care for you baby. We miss you but know you are in such a precious place at Rainbow Bridge. Until we meet again; forever.

Love you so much,

Bubby and Daddy

Re: Forever memories and Doctor visits

 

Dear Our Sweet Baby,

We miss you a ton since you went to Rainbow Bridge. Can’t wait to be with you again for eternity.

A lot has happened around the house the past few weeks so let me please provide an update.

First, and foremost, Mommy and I received the most beautiful lifetime memorial of your wonderfulness. It is so very sad, yet so inspirational in the same vein. Your pretty, prefect paw prints are forever, literally, set-in-stone. Every day I make a point to visit and say a prayer for your peace, happiness and health at Rainbow Bridge. This is such a precious gift that Mommy made as a forever memory. I love it and you are such a pretty baby!

Next, your newly adopted sissies seem to be getting along with Bubby pretty well. Bleu and Jack have no issues whatsoever, which is a bit surprising to me considering that size difference but they have a lot of fun with each other. Bleu likes to play with Jack’s tail and he allows it like a champion. It’s clear that he misses you badly and tutoring a new baby feline is his way of coping. He’s enjoying the reciprocation to help a little kitten baby just like you took such terrific care of Buddy so good as an older Sissy when he was a little guy.

Bleu and Gracie went to see our beloved animal doctor today. Dr. N, especially, said to say hello to you. He knows that you are having such a wonderful time at Rainbow Bridge with his little girl. I sincerely hope that you two are in direct communication because he loved you dearly but I just wanted to communicate this message none-the-less. Gracie was there just to introduce her to Doctor but Bleu had to get a shot of some sort. She was a very good patient according to Doctor.

Baby Honey, we love you so much. Please send a memory or message. We would love that more than you will ever know right now; we really need it.

Love you to the moon and back forever,

Mommy, Daddy, Bubby and Sissies

From: Your extended family at Lincoln Avenue Veterinary Clinic (LAVC)

Re: Condolence Card from LAVC

 

Dear my best girl of all-time,

I write you this letter on behalf of your great extended family. This is the wonderfully beautiful family at Lincoln Avenue Veterinary Clinic (LAVC).

They were such a terrific group of people to you and I know you loved them as well. They miss you tremendously since you went to Rainbow Bridge. They sent you, Mommy and I the most absolutely heart-warming condolence card that you can imagine. I wanted to share this with you and make sure delivery to your temporary home is made until we can cross The Bridge together.

Dr. Kevin Nagle and his entire staff hand wrote a special note to you from each of them individually. It was so special. When your Mommy and I visited LAVC today to update your bubbies and sissies microchip status, we made a point to especially thank all the staff for their kind note and love for you.

As you know LAVC is a knowledgeable, compassionate and great clinic. They took such fantastic care of you even when sometimes it wasn’t always fun for you. They did things on our behalf in your best interest and we enjoyed nearly 15 years together which I am so grateful for; even though this time was far too short. Now your lonely brother, Jackson, and two sisters, Gracie and Bleu, get the pleasure of meeting this awesome staff of animal lovers. Your Mommy, Daddy and furr-siblings look forward to many more fantastic years at LAVC in your loving legacy.

Love you baby and please know you are SOOO loved at LAVC!

-Mommy, Daddy and LAVC staff
