I just had to share this with everyone since this is the first
picture of Tux anywhere on the petloss or the web. Baglemae did this for me.
Tux had one ear (his left as you can kinda see) that was almost amputated
(before he was mine) & he also lost a back toe in the same fight.
No one knows who beat him up.
But he could smell a dog a mile away & would be hidden quite a few minutes
before it came up on us - makes me think!!!! He weighed 15 lbs when I got him.
Had him the last 7 of his 12 years. He was probably 9 1/2 or 10 here.
He was an unbelievable companion who I never thought would leave me.
He weighed 8.8 lbs when I put him to sleep on 12/13/03.
I still miss him terribly & either smile really big when I see pics of him
or cry very hard.
Tuxaroo will always live in me. My little boy!!!! Enjoy!



As the campfires up there of Immortaility burn bright,
I will be with you again one fine startlit night.
Tuxaroo, you will always be my most special love,
and on that starry night i will join you up above.

We may not always realize
That every thing we do,
Affects not only our lives
But touches others, too!

For a little bit of thoughtfulness
That shows someone you care,
Creates a ray of sunshine
For both of you to share.

Yes, every time you offer
Someone a helping hand ...
Every time you show a friend
You care and understand ...

Every time you have
A kind and gentle word to give ...
You help someone find beauty
In this precious life we live.

For happiness brings happiness
And loving ways bring love;
And Giving is the treasure
That contentment is made of.

"A Loan From God"

God promised at the birth of time, A special friend to give,
Her time on earth is short, He said, So love her while she lives.
It may be for eight or ten years, Or only two or three,
But will you, till I call her back, Take care of her for Me?
A wagging tail and cold wet nose, And silken velvet ears,
A heart as big as all outdoors, To love you through the years.
Her puppy/kitty ways will gladden you, And antics bring a smile,
As guardian or friend she will, Be loyal all the while.
She'll bring her charms to grace your life, And though her stay be brief,
When she's gone the memories, Are solace for your grief.
I cannot promise she will stay, Since all from earth return,
But lessons only a dog/cat can teach, I want you each to learn.
I've looked the whole world over, In search of guardians true,
And from the folk that crowd life's land, I have chosen you.
Whatever love you give to her, Returns in triple measure,
Follow her lead and gain a life, Brim full of simple pleasures.
Enjoy each day as it comes, Allow your heart to guide,
Be loyal and steadfast in love, As the dog/cat there by your side.
Now will you give her all your love, Nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to call, To take her back again?
I fancy each of us would say, Dear Lord, thy will be done,
For all the joys this dog/cat shall bring, The risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter her with tenderness, We'll love her while we may,
And for the happiness we've known, Forever grateful stay.
But should the angels call for her, Much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, And try to understand.
If by our love we've managed, God's wishes to achieve,
In memory of her/him that we have loved, And to help us while we grieve;
When our faithful bundle departs, This earthly world of strife,
We'll get yet another pup/kitty, And love him all his life.
