A flower named Dory.......

Today we join all of Dory's friends to pay tribute to a life lived well, full of love and 
flowers.  We thank the Idaho Pugs, Kinley and Oz 



When Mom started to prepare this tribute to Dory, she wondered if per chance there was a 
flower named Dory.  Needless to say we were not surprised that 

THERE IS!!!
Doryanthes excelsa
Below is a little information on it and we especially thought the definition of excelsa
was purrfect for Dory.


Doryanthes excelsa, commonly known as Gymea lily, is a flowering plant in the familyDoryanthaceae and is endemic to coastal areas of New South Wales near Sydney. It has sword-like leaves more than 1 metre (3 ft) long and when it flowers, sends up a flower spike up to 6 metres (20 ft) high. The apex of the spike bears a large cluster of bright red flowers, each 10 centimetres (4 in) across. Its common name is derived from the name given to the plant by the indigenous Eora people and the Sydney suburbs of Gymea and Gymea Bay are named after the lily.

the real Doryanthes..mom used the incorrect photo...in the insert on Dory's photo


Translation and definition of excelsa. ... Phrases with the word excelsa such as Gloria in excelsis Deo – Glory to God in the Highest; semper excelsius – always higher.

Doryanthes excelsa...is a perfect flower for our sweet Angel Dory...
Below is an insert photo of the Dory(anthes) in bloom and we added
one to Dory's collar too.


The Flower Boat
poem by Robert Frost
The fisherman's swapping a yarn for a yarn
Under the hand of the village barber,
And her in the angle of house and barn
His deep-sea dory has found a harbor.

At anchor she rides the sunny sod
As full to the gunnel of flowers growing
As ever she turned her home with cod
From George's bank when winds were blowing.

And I judge from that elysian freight
That all they ask is rougher weather,
And dory and master will sail by fate
To seek the Happy Isles together.

The pink and white flowers in this heart collage represent
Dory's love of pink and flowers, her soft white furs and to let her know she left a paw print on our hearts
Hugs Madi and Mom



DORY WAS ALL ABOUT FLOWERS AND FUN...
HERE ARE A FEW FUN MEMORIES

Two Step
a round dance with a sliding step in march or polka time.

Dory and Mr. Bailey can boot scoot like pros!!




HAPPY HAPPY 12TH BIRTHDAY DORY!!


DID YOU HEAR THE NEWS?  TODAY IS DORY'S DAY!!
SHE IS CELEBRATING WITH A BLOG HOP AND A HIJINKS,no clue what it is
but if Dory is doing it there will be frolicking and fun and food and
dancing and you might even see some twerking.
Before the festivities started, Dory and I had a little gal time at my house.


HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY MY FRIEND!!


We thank Mayor Arty's assistant aka Momma for this 
most treasured photo of Mom holding Dory at the BAR in Indiana June 2016.
Mom never in a million years expected to meet any of our
furiends BUTTTT she did.  She 
loved every moment of the BAR and will treasure those meetings furever.
Mom also held Dory for about 30 minutes.....I think Dory was as happy
as mom was too Dory is twice as soft as she looks and
Mayor Arty is most handsome and debonair (and soft too in a manly way)!!

I've known Dory for a very very very long time.  When we 
met it was just Dory and Bilbo....we watched with glee and 
happiness as Arty and Jakey joined the pack.

This is the very first comment Dory left on my blog:

The first thing I also thought about when seeing this is the whistle!!

Thanks fr visiting us Madi Dory really likes Kitties!

Dory and her Mom Beth
To Dory and her Mama:
We will always remember Dory's smile, kindness, friendship, love of a good time,
love of family and friends, her positive outlook on life.
She reminded us to stop and smell the flowers!!
Thank you  and until we see you again some day.
Hugs Your bfff Madi and HiC your unofficial God-mommy

Thoroughly Poetic Thankful Thursday

TODAY I'M JOINING MY BUDDIES Angel SAMMY and Teddy FROM 
Today's post is brought to you by the letter


S


Siblings
by Madison D Cat

Dad has one
Mom has none
As for me, I'm happy alone.
Human sis is an only and that is no baloney!
She has never been lonely.
She has always been friendly and rarely alone
Once she spent the night with Michelle
Oh me, oh my she came home with woeful tales
Michelle and her bro 
A bathroom did share
Sis said his lack of care with water, soap and toothpaste 
gave her a scare.
Sis was glad to return home and quite glad to be an only.



**********************************
Below are our first photos downloaded to the
new 'puter.  I was 'snoopervising' Geek Agent Vanessa.
You'll love this Agent Vanessa gave us her card and guess what
she is a DOUBLE Agent.....
That means she can set up 'puters like ours or
she could build us a computer.  





We are so very thankful for all our blogging friends.  All of you are always so
willing to help in anyway.  You are the best.
We Join.......

MS we thank you for telling us about jpg.  We were using Picmonkey
which supposedly saves photos to jpg.  But ours came up blank.
So we edited them in Pizap and Pizap..saved with jpg at the end and

Madi walked around the tape all day....often stopping to look at it
