Greetings From All Of Us OTRB

Greetings from all of us OTRB !
Over the last few weeks we have welcomed more Pals OTRB than ever before.   If we knew where the key was, we would lock the Rainbow Gate, because although we love welcoming each new Pal, we know their family is left sad.  Please try and send a hug or an uplifting tweet to any family whose Pal you know has made the journey OTRB.  
When you hear a Pal has started on his or her RB journey, please let me know so I can meet them and let their family know their Pal has settled in, surrounded by other loving Pals.  If I have missed your Pal in this list, please just let me know and I will be glad to include you too.

@Cowboy_the_dog was only young and arrived OTRB unexpectedly.  His Golden Oldie brofur, Scamp, was waiting at the Banquet Hall, to surprise Cowboy when he arrived for his Welcome Banquet.  Scamp only arrived OTRB last year, so losing 2 doggies within one year is very difficult for their Mom.

@Informedferret's James (left) and his brofur Lance, who also only arrived within the year.  Lance and James are both action guys, who enjoy exploring all sorts of new things together.  They are also rather partial to many outfits !

@GiorgioMaltese's Gilbert and Sullivan, on their way to Sullivan's Welcome Banquet.  Gilbert was already here, and both brofurs were reunited OTRB on Xmas Day.  They have already begun rehearsing in the Theatre Club!  Notice even in my Pram, they were singing an aria from La Bohme!

@MrTibbsatAP's Weezo; a sweet Golden Oldie and a new member to The Orange Boyz.  Weezo loves sun baking while laying in a bed of soft Maidenhair Fern.  He also loves zooming around on his "Orange Chaos" motorbike!  BOL!

@HollieCatRocks pictured with her Husband @SamTheCatRocks.  Together they have begun an OTRB Wedding Planners service.  They specialize in Honeymoon destinations! *honeyMOON* BOL!

@BostonBull1999's Brooklyn  has been a real hit in the Frisbee Team.  His ability to leap thru the air, do a double rotation flip and execute a perfect landing, is amazing!  

@ZackMadDog was only a teenager when he was hit by a car and killed.  He has joined the Ball Club, where running and leaping is part of the fun!

@Pkitass 's Tiki, who was only young and arrived OTRB unexpectedly.   Tiki has signed up for Theatre Classes and Basketball too !  He says he's always wanted to fly thru the air and dunk the ball, and now he can!

@SNOBBB  Snobbb has taken a shine  to designing couture, along with @LouisLeBeau.  I can't wait to see his finished collection!  He is also launching a new line of Specialty Pizzas! *drooling*

@Schnille's Mookie (and his much travelled brofur ) Lippe, danced their way to Mookie's Welcome Banquet.  Mookie has teamed up with Paul The Octopus and together they have become a Soccer force to reckon with (as they lead the Soccer Team.)

@Beautifulsuzieq's Zach, has joined my golf team!  He says his astounding short game has got nothing to do with stature! *impressive*  Bet his Mom never knew he loved plaid pants!

@Pillbug's Orlando; a dear Golden Oldie and new member to The Orange Boyz.  Orlando has fallen inlove with @RudyCKat's Spa & Beautification products!  Especially the orange enhancing spritzer!

@NannersMom's Chonchi, a dearly loved Bunny boy, who enjoys Rudy's Spa on a regular basis.  Chonchi has joined @PuzTheCat's Basketball Team - jumping and thumping is one of his fortes!

@MizzBassie's Rufus; very precious Golden Oldie and another new member to The Orange Boyz.  Being a laid back guy, Rufus has offered his services as a Taste Tester at the Banquet Hall.  BOL!

@JulieMangano's Willie who has joined @TheRustCat's Tennis Ball Chasing team.  Willie loves running very fast!  He is particularly good at zooming, stopping on a dime and zooming back again.

Tavia, the kitteh who was tragically starved to death, in her own abandoned house, as outsiders took photographs of her thru the windows.  Unfortunately no-one was brave enough to break a window and let her out, so she died a slow death of hunger and thirst.

@ChubDogg's Seamus has joined the Swim Team, and also my Golf Team!  Works out great for us, because if anyone hits a ball into the water, Seamus swims in and gets it for us.  BOL!

@ChoeBe's Amadeo;  sweet Golden Oldie.  Amadeo is designing Couture Dog wear that comes with a matching designer cocktail.  I am most excited to see the finished results.  

@Braverachel14's Chipper; a dear Golden Oldie.  Chipper has started our first Baseball Team.  He says he has to test each ball by everyone pitching it and then everyone has to run after it to see how far it goes.  Wait till you see their new outfits! 

Paul The Octopus,  global celebrity for choosing the World Cup soccer teams.  Paul and Mookie have teamed up to lead the Soccer Team!  I have a saying they will use as their banner when playing other teams:  "Memento Mori" (translation: Remember that YOU are mortal!)  BOL !  So funny, cause we all now have extra special skills.  Hee! Hee!

Bubby, one of Mum's orphaned Kangaroo Joey babies.  His mum suffered a freak accident and had to be PTS, leaving Bubby orphaned.  Tragically Bubby was killed by a fox one week later. 

8 month old Kangaroo Joey boy (one of Mum's Roo rescues, who sadly fell victim to Myopathy and had to be PTS).

Thank you for taking time to read this.  All comments are greatly appreciated.  *waves paw from Pram*  What A View !!

RudyCKat's 1st Memorial Anniversary

One year ago on December 7th, 2009, Rudy boarded my Pram and together we drove across The Rainbow Bridge.  What most Pals do not know is that the same day we arrived OTRB, it was also Rudy's 2nd Birthday.  Rudy was only a young teenager when he crossed The Rainbow Bridge.

When we arrived at the Banquet Hall, Rudy slid our of my Pram, floofed his tail, then proceeded to waltz up the steps !  Waiting on the other side were all our OTRB Pals.  Rudy didn't know it, but @PuzTheCat had a beautiful Welcome Banquet Dinner waiting for him !  Rudy pawtied the night away, dancing with his buddies.

Rudy quickly set the standard for 'immaculate grooming'.  His manicured dewclaws, the way he constantly floofed his tail in all directions and the gentlemanly tossing of his mane made up us all stand on our paws and take note.   Being the generous gentleman that Rudy is, he offered to help Pals learn the art of "Floofing".    This was an instant success !  Rudy's dream of running his own Spa & Beautification Salon was now in motion.

Photograph: Rudy finally talked me into trying his Signature Tuna Oatmeal Spa Bath !  PepiSmartDog (left) & RudyCKat (right).  Picture by PepiSmartDog.
 Finally I agreed to try Rudy's signature "Tuna & Oatmeal Spa Bath".  Warmed tuna, with just softened oatmeal, both moisturized and exfoliated me at the same time, while calming me with the heady aroma of tuna.!   And when I got peckish, it was mighty tasty too.  I couldn't wait to tell everyone about Rudy's new venture.

"Rudy's Spa & Beautification Salon"opened ! He realized his dream and we were all so excited for him !  OTRB now has it's own 12 Stars Spa !  You will not understand what "being spoiled" is, until you experience Rudy's paws !

This picture was taken on Rudy's first day of being open.   We were lined up outside, waiting for him to arrive ! BOL !  See some of our beauty secrets: 'Rudy's Rainbow Face Packs' and 'R.B. Eye Rejuvenators'.  Look how happy Rudy looks !

Rudy's Spa is the place to be for both young and old Pals.  Bookings are essential.  We sip special RB drinks get pampered !  We are truly blessed to have Rudy, but more than anything, to have him as a friend.  Rudy is a great guy, full of surprises !  Here are some Rudy facts from before he arrived OTRB: 
Rudy tried farming, but it was murder on his hair!
He then tried music, but the combination of Saxaphone and Yoga took a toll.....on his mane.
No door is Rudy proof, including fridge doors !
He tried his paw at Theatre, but it took so long to get dressed for each scene. *sigh*
Rudy loves Barktending ! He even has a secret OTRB ingredient for his own Signature drink !  Make sure you try one next time he's Barktending.
Rudy still looks after his sisfur @MaggieTKat and his new little brofur @ParkerSKat, even though he is now OTRB.
This is for Rudy's Mom:  Rudy got you this "sippi cup" with one of our Signature Rainbow Bridge songs on it:  "Born Free".
Rudy we love you and are proud of all you do !  You are a good friend to many Pals.  Our lives are richer for knowing you.  You bring us joy and laughter, plus really good hair !  BOL !

Please leave a comment for Rudy and his family.   This is a profoundly sad time for his Mom, so all uplifting comments are much appreciated.  Thank you.  XXX

@LexiLouDog's 1st Memorial Anniversary

LexiLouDog boarded my Pram for The Rainbow Bridge on December the 4th, last year, 2009.   This is Lexi 's first Memorial Anniversary OTRB.  Lexi is sisfur to @BusyButtons.
Photograph: LexiLouDog
Green is Lexi's favorite color, so (OTRB) we all got up early and dressed in green, then painted everything else green too.   But we had another big surprise for Lexi: we filled the Banquet Hall to capacity with Green M&Ms.
@Tweetypie54 told Lexie she had a message waiting for her inside the Banquet Dining Room.  When Lexi trotted over to the Hall and opened the doors, the whole room was filled with green M&Ms and they all spilled out everywhere! You should have seen Lexi's face!  BOL!
Photograph: @LexiLouDog wearing her favorite green M&M sweater
Lexi was riding a wave of Green M&Ms.  We were all watching from the garden.  It was extra funny when she kept rolling and rolling around in them.  BOL!  Then we all ran inside the Hall and joined Lexie in rolling around in her 'M&M Heaven.' 
Photograph: Lexi in M&M heaven! BOL 
Next thing, we were all covered in green M&M dye!  Lexi looked like a happy goblin!  BOL!  Luckily @RudyCKat 's Spa & Beautifucation Team arrived and made us all beautiful again.  They fitted Lexi in a gorgeous green evening gown for her to enjoy her Big Day of celebrations.

In doing "Lexi Research", I discovered some amazing facts about Lexi: she is the ORIGINAL "blog dog"!  Before anyone else had blogs, Lexi was busy blogging away setting the standard for all of us to follow, back in 2007.  Lexi was the Curator (!!!) of the "Articulate Animals Gallery" in the National Gallery of Writing! *faint*  
When you finish reading Lexi's Tribute, go across and take a look at this: 
In 2009 Lexi became the official Sekurity Documentation Officer for  @FrugalDougal's #Pawpawties. It is possible that Lexi is the original Judge Judy! *pass the vapors* Lexi wrote monthly reports exposing Pal's crazy shenanigans.

But Lexi has a weakness: green M&M's. BOL!  Before she went OTRB, she couldn't eat them because chocolate is lethal for dogs, so to compensate, her Mom fitted Lexi out with every conceivable Green M&M "thing" in existence.  BOL !  Move over Elvis! "LexiLand" is a Lexi-M&M shrine to taste!

Please leave a comment for Lexi's Mom and her brofur @BusyButtons.  Today is a very special day for them and they will treasure each of your comments.  @SmokeyPoodle has created a Twibbon for Lexi, which you can access here:
