Tragedy Hits the King House




























I have just been beside myself in sadness for the last week over the tragic loss of Boomerang Bob. I feel like I have lost my best friend, well except for Vickie....you know what I mean. I am really not even sure what happened. We were happily playing one minute. Me running joyfully through the trees with Bob flopping gracefully from my mouth. Up and down, up and down.

And then the next thing I know, Bob is gone. I dont' know where he went, or when it happened, I just know that Bob, my boomerang Bob is gone......I mean, did he fall into the river while we were swimming? Did some dog whisk him away while I wasn't looking?

Where oh where are you Bob. Vickie and I have looked everywhere for you..... Please come home.....
I have night mares that you are floating down the Weber River slowly sinking deeper and deeper into the cold depths as the current drags you further and futher from home. Or heaven forbid, some other dog is sleeping soundly with you tightly lodged under their chin with sleep drool dripping all over you from their slobbery mouths.

I am so upset.

And then, during my greiving, Vickie, thinking she was doing the right thing, calls Jill from Pet Expectation http://www.petexpectations.com/home.html and pleads with her to bring up another boomerang toy for me. She hoped that I would not notice the difference, that I might think it was just a cleaner version of Bob.

Oh how silly humans are. Of course I knew immediatly it wasn't Bob. For heavens sake, Vickie Bob is Yellow.....what were you thinking? I am not color blind. At least I don't think I am.

This is not Bob. Nothing can take the place of Bob. What am I to do......






























When Vickie realized that I knew this wasn't Bob, she told me that Bob may never be coming back and that I should accept it and move on. MOVE ON!!!! Really....

She told me that I should be happy that Boomerang Betty was willing to come and try and fill in for the hole left by Bob. That I should give Betty a chance.......
I just don't know if I can.

Oh Bob, oh Bob where are you Bob.........
No offence to Betty, but I just don't want her......I told Jamie that she could have Boomerang Betty. After all, I read some of your comments and I heard some of the phone calls. You all wanted Jamie to have a Boomerang Bob for her self. You were all telling Vickie that I should share more, that I should let Jamie play with Bob.
So now that Bob is gone, and Betty has come to stay, I just say...go ahead Jamie, Betty is all yours. I am willing to share......take her.......Oh Bob......I miss you sooooooo
Wait, whats this...."Boney Tony" Jill sent a big blue bone shaped toy......It ain't no Boomerang Bob, but I LIKE IT.....
No Jamie...."Boney Tony" is all mine.....you take Betty, I get Tony......
Give him back Jamie.....He is MINE.....
OK now Jamie has a great toy......is everyone happy....
And even though I will never get over the loss of Boomerang Bob, my very first GREAT TOY, I think I will be able to move on with "Boney Tony"
Bye bye Bob......



















Love ya
Bert
Now lets go play........
