Been thinking all week of my very special pal Jackson. My hero buddy. My fellow squarie. Like so many of you are doing. The thoughtful caring things my wiry pals have done for him. Putting up prayer flags. Gazing at the night sky. Wishing on the dog star. Reciting bootiful poems. Sending healing wiry wishes. Been adding my zen to the huge waves of it arriving across the big pee from everydog too.

But every time I've been in my bed this week I've been thinking of him xtra 'specially. Cos we both have the coolest, cosiest beds. Matching beds. Twin beds. Both got them the same week too! The bed material is supposedly of a dog called Stanley, but me and Jackson, we know different. WE know it's covered in Jackson and me's. Our mini-me's bed, he,he!

So when I'm in our mini-me's it reminds me of Jackson every time. I've been hoping Jackson's comfy and cosy in his too. And barking his head off as usual. I've been barking back to him so he can hear me and knows I'm there for him. So please bloggies, every time you bark today and the following Jackson days, bark your very loudest so he can hear you too.

We too are praying with all our might and wiry powers for our dearest pal Jackson. I am happy to bark for him too though our horrid neighbor who once reported me to the police might not approve. But screw him, I'll do anything to help Jackson.
Keep up the good work Eric,

Eric, I'm more a talker than a barker. And I've been known to let loose with a howl or two, especially when Mommy isn't fast enough retrieving the ball from under the couch. In fact, when we listened to your mini-movie, you and I sound quite a bit alike, apart from the American and English accents, of course.

So I'll send some "roo-rooos" Jackson's way!

Your pal,

We're sending all the Aire-zen we can find to sweet Jackson! We hope he's good as new very soon!

Jackson said...

Hey Eric, is it my imagination or is your bed about 100 times cleaner looking than mine?! I've certainly done a good job so far of covering it in crumbs and stuff. Thank you for thinking of me; we've been really touched by all the lovely comments left on my blog. J x

Eric, dear square pal, If there's anything we do well, it's BARKING OUR SQUARE HEADS OFF!! So it's great to know that our barking now has a pawlitically correct purpose: Barking for Jackson. No more shhhhh!! No more Quiet!!!. No more NO!!!
