a rainbow thursday

mollie and i were in a blur, wrestling with the concept of a rainbow post, rainbow... WTD?

flag this i said, yesterday was not only b's bro's birthday but gillie's barkday too! so golly miss mollie that certainly seems like a mighty fine reason to go have some fun don't you think? venue... doyles, occasion... gillie's barkday!

oops... seems like mango got the wrong gillie, mango mate, you are not sposed to be wearing a ghillie, you are sposed to be here to see gillie! arf arf arf

resuited, mango joined the rest of us outside the infamous doyles before joining the party inside...

mollie led gillie thru the throng of people, joey... you sporting green contacts mate, nice!

asta gasped in shock, OMD doyle, is that colin hugging gillie...

mollie, lacie and asta strutted their stuff on the dogwalk...

but wanting to let her fur down, and in on the surprise, lacie whispered sweet nothings to gillie and coaxed him into bailing to the back bar...

where mcjules, gillie's fur mom, had a very fine brew lined up and joey was pawed with a toast...

Here's to a long life and a merry one.

A quick death and an easy one.

A pretty girl and an honest one.

A cold pint-- and another one!

in the spirit of the occasion and more suitably attired for a shindig, we toasted all the friends we had recently lost to the rainbow bridge... may the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty... 'sláinte chuig na fir, agus go mairfidh na mná go deo.'

max, jazzy, miss snickers, gladys the rooster, hamish, taylor, dakota, sharkie, java, our sweet bodie cat, pixie, poppy, wally and ziggy... you are all missed but not forgotten, rainbows when seen by us are for you! loves and licks.

next week blue's decided we are to play crimson...

You sure know how to bring a tear to the eye.
I have more than my fair share in the rainbow bridge picture, but in an odd way I'm happy to think that they are all there playing with their new mates. Really lovely post xxx

Mango said...

That was quite a party. I see Mollie has fallen in with a fast crowd. Watch out for that. That outfit was kind of uncomfortable. Thanks for straightening things out.

Hey! Nice rainbow wrestling mat.

And I loved the final photo.

And that video - we loved it, especially when Mollie whomped Doyle on the head with her paw:) Such a sweet tribute to those who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge - we are touched that you thought to include our sweet Dakota - hugs to you for your thoughtfulness. We have tears but happy ones after reading your post.
