Heroes in the Sky - Howie's Tribute to Hank

Hank, the King of Pugs

Dear Big Fella in the Sky

This here is Howie. I know I usually have to apologize for stuff I've done when we talk, but today I just want to ask you to watch over my buddy and my hero, Hanklin. He's settling in on his bran new cloud at your house and I imagine right about now he got his first look at my sissy Winnie Wiggles, whose jiggles have been known to give younger pugs palpitations. I'm glad Hank is feeling better today. He just sent me a text that he just had his fourteenth hamburger and washed it all down with a cold brew from the best stuff on tap he ever tasted. He said you even remembered no onion on his burger, without being reminded at all. Tomorrow he said he and all the pugs are going skiing on a pontoon pugboat and then they're gonna roast weenies and marshmallows and sit by the pool while the ladies talk about what will be on the all you can eat 24-hour buffet. He said the only thing that could make it better was if he got to tell his maw, one more time, how much he loves her. I promised I'd pass that along if he'd send me one of them hotdogs. Thanks for watching over Hank - tell him I'll be waiting on that delivery here by the front door. Signed most sincerely, Howie.

Howie, what a great letter. Your hero, Hanky is so proud of you for being such a special guy, and especially for remembering his dear old Mom. I didn't think I had a tears left after hearing today's sad news, but your letter got me leaking again.

This is a beautiful tribute to Hanky.
I know Hank was welcomed with open arms, and The Big Fella will make sure everything is just perfect.
I have no doubt about it!
Hank was one of my first friends.
We will all miss him.

So beautiful! My eyes sure are leaking....

Oh, Howard....just when I thought I'd emptied out my tearducts. ;)

Thank you for passing along the message. It made me happy. Sure miss my baby boy.

I do hope Hanklin follows through on his end of the deal but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. If a yummy, fire-cooked weenie actually escapes from Hank's paw it will be a miracle!

Love to you, AB, Mr. Fromage, Hannah and your parents. :)

Golly gee, Howie, this was a very sweet tribute to your pal Hank. I know he will be missed immensely by so many. I didn't even know him but it nake me sad to know how sad his family is right now. We love you furbabies with all our hearts and it saddens us deeply to let you go. Sometimes it's necessary but still so sad. Hugs, bellyrubs and kisses to all of you pugs in the Medina household!
