Hattie was many things to many pups, firstly, she was the picture of Haute Couture. Her Mom is a wizard with fabric and a sewing machine. We pups felt honored to be gifted with a Hattie Mae Original outfit handmade by the gracious Hattie and her Mom. She was the center of revelry and hijinks. Her Christmas games and other holiday celebrations are things true memories and legends are made of.
Most of all Hattie and her Mom were the oil on troubled waters and the balm on hurt hearts. In other words these two truly have a Mothers heart, and have been a Mother to many a cyber pup.
The thing about Hattie and her Mom that we will never forget is their consistent reminders to show love in the middle of conflict, and acceptance when others would be intolerant.
Mom and I didn't know them long, but it doesn't take you long to figure out you've met an angel. Love, acceptance, respect and compassion are things that can't truly be taught. These are things that are inside one's heart and soul. It's second nature to angels and is as simple as breathing to these two; thou difficult for some to fathom.
Indeed there will never be another Hattie and her Mom, but rather than rending our clothes and beating our breast may we instead grasp the essence of these special friends and in our own frail and mortal way attempt to honor their legacy by following their example.

There is so much more to say about these dear and special furiends but this pup has run out of words and is finding it difficult to see the monitor due to mist in my eyes from the tears.
We do indeed thank you sweet furiend for all the lovely memories. Until we meet again.
Molly and my Mom
