Double Post Thursday is Here!
FIRST we are THANKFUL with Brian………
I am thankful this week because Mom and Dad took me to the Vet on Tuesday to get me checked out! Why on earth would I be THANKFUL for having to go to the stabby place? Well, because it was only my third time in the car EVER – once coming home from the shelter when I was adopted, once for an initial vet check, and this past Tuesday for a BIG checkup. Why did I need a BIG checkup? Mom thought it was a big problem that I won’t eat wet food – I’m OK with dry but my favorite “dry” is TREATS! Not a good thing – treats should be treats and not a main meal. She also wasn’t sure if it was good that the only water I drink is out of the faucet. That’s right – I go to the nearest bathroom and squeak (I don’t meow – I squeak) for someone to put me on the counter and turn on the water so I can get a BIG FAT drink. Mom wants to get me a fountain – Dad says it’s gonna be just recycled water and I won’t use the fountain……..DUH…………. She also thought that MAYBE I was getting a little – well – how do I say this diplomatically – well CHUBBY is the word! When I went to the vet initially after I was adopted, I was 11 months old and weighed 8 lbs. Now I’m 15 months old and I weigh (gulp) 14 lbs! Probably the treats I love says my doc. So, now I’m eating Fancy Feast regular REAL non-treat dry food which I find “ACCEPTABLE” ! So what about ALL OF THAT makes me thankful? Because I’m thankful I have a Mom and Dad who love me so much they want me to get GOOD habits and to be HEALTHY always – that’s why!

Now I’ll turn it over to Angel Sammy for HIS Poetry Challenge Post!
Hello friends from the Rainbow Bridge! Today we are working on the letter “C” in our third go-round on the alphabet……………remember, the poems have to be about something starting with the letter “C” – OR you can use one of my prompt words that I provided LAST Thursday on the Poetic Thursday post! Those words were:
(1) CAR (2) CAMERA (3) COOKIE (4) CARPET
What did I write and transmit to my baby brother for today’s post???? Stay tuned.
My poem is using the prompt last week with the word “CAR” !
By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 6/29/17
It was 17 years ago
When from the shelter I would go
Home with two people I would learn to love
People who were sent by angels above
I was such a lucky guy with a lucky star
UNTIL I GOT IN THAT AWFUL CAR!
For 16 years I’d have to travel
My patience and happiness would always unravel
I hated to be in that terrible thing
Because I knew what the trip would bring!
The vet was always my destination
THAT’s what would cause my consternation!
When I GOT there I was perfectly fine
It was the trip in the CAR that blew my mind!
I miss my parents more than I can say
But I don’t miss that CAR in any way!
So that’s it from the Rainbow Bridge this week……………hope you wrote a poem for the challenge – and if you did, you can post it in our comments HERE, or post your blog URL in my comments so we can come visit you and read your poetry! Remember, it doesn’t matter if your poem rhymes – what’s important is that you give it a try…………everyone can write a poem………..honest!
With Love, Angel Sammy
Thanks big brother…………………I am happy you have good wi-fi at the Rainbow Bridge so you can get your poem to me every week! I hope we have lots of friends who decide to write a poem for “C” this week. Now I’ll let everyone know what you chose for prompts for NEXT week’s letter “D” poem! Remember everyone you can write a poem about ANYTHING starting with “D” or use one of Angel Sammy’s prompts:
