Ponya goes…todayPosted: April 21, 2009 Filed under: DRambles on Black Mountain 3 Comments
Today Ponya gets lucky. It was to have been last Friday, but the spring snow storm determined otherwise. It is without reservation I send her, grateful Susan has agreed to let Ponya spend her later years with her Gompa relatives in sunny, beautiful California. It is what I wanted for this dear little dog.
Sammy is eagerly awaiting…
Rinchen, perhaps not so…
Her aunt Raji, depicted in this beautiful painting by Katy, is also waiting…
Gone, but lingering in the garden, Champ…
Ponya arrived at my house at the tender age of 4 months, along with her dam Irdhi, in the original group of Gompa dogs delivered at my doorstep. Irdhi and Raji are littersisters. She was jet black, a round roly poly little thing. Her daughter Margo looks so much like her! There is so much I’d like to say about Ponya, but she – even more than me – has a time schedule today. Just like Champ (well, not just like! This will be a different story!), we’ll get to follow her integration into her new pack. I can’t wait to see photos of her sunbathing in Susan’s Gardens.
As time goes, I will update her page. I have beautiful photos of Ponya. One of my favorites is Julie, in elaborate Tibetan clothing, holding her during the 2004 presentation in St. Louis. Kathy shared the Hopi meaning of Ponya earlier, did a bit of on-line research regarding the Tibet/Hopi connection and shared this segment from the Hopi creation story:
We’re all anxiously waiting for Ponya to arrive in her forever home! There could be no finer place for a Gompa Apso to live out her senior years than in Susan’s Garden!
And talk about Old Soul eyes – just look at the old soul pearing out of Sammy’s eyes!
My prayers for a safe trip , and good wishes for a happy life, are with you today, Ponya! You’re gonna love it there!
She’s here and all she’s got to sayso far is:
who turned the thermostat up so high????
Waiting to hear about your new adventures with Ponya as she becomes a California girl!
All the very best to you and your wonderful pack of Gompas!
