    I was just at a party where there was a punch made of mango & melon juice with sprite. With ice, it made a really refreshing punch.

    And yes, we can all raise a glass to Dixie.

    Fizzy Water... do you mean Seltzer? Well, since it is pizza and it is high in sodium, I will have plain ole ice water with lemon. (High BP)...

    I love the idea of toasting Dixie. A song I played for one of my furbabies was "Land of Elfaine." Gary Stadler. Lovely. I also like "Shores of Avelon" Tina Malia. And if someone has a copy of "Rainbow Bridge" and would do the reading of this, I bet Dixie would love it. Even Dogs get Angel Wings.
    If I could have one day and have that day be very windy and choose what I wished to be... I'd be a Kite and fly free...

    In Harmony,

    I'll do the water with no ice but with lime. (no high BP, but was simply raised on it)

    Thank you bubbles! A party for my sweet Dixie should include lots of good food because my Dixie loved to eat! She was constantly getting into any food that happened to get left out. On separate occasions she ate:

    - an entire loaf of bread and half a jar of peanut butter (she had to first chew off the lid)
    - an entire Easter chocolate bunny
    - she once jumped on top of a huge bag of dog food and just started eating her way down until we found her with her stomach hugely bloated
    - a cherry pie
    - half a birthday cake

    She wasn't a big dog (will post a pic on my other thread) but she had a huge appetite. Even with cancer she generally ate well and always stayed close to P whenever food was involved.

    So I'm not sure what I'll drink in honor of Dixie, but I'll fix a big cake in her honor that we can all enjoy. I hope she's eating all the yummy food that she wants right now in heaven!

    Dixie will be up also playing with Latte and Cappy, probably all of them getting into mischief just because they can

    Kate_Te replied to penguie's response:
    I will happily drink to Dixie! Give me a Sprite Zero & a piece of that cake! I know there is a heaven for pets, because they give us unconditional love - rarely found anywhere else.
    bubbles_bobble replied to Kate_Te's response:
