Balloons to Heaven.

Balloons to Heaven

Today we said adieu to a dear and special Friend

Known throughout the Balloon world, her name-- Jen.

She loved life to the fullest--both people and 4-legged friends

She was always prepared for fun around a hot air balloon ascent.

She welcomed me with open arms and hugs and kisses too.

I loved to visit her in her Balloon world with all her fabulous crew.

We did great things together out on the Balloon Museum lawn

I launched my Dog-Gubernatorial Race as she and many others looked on

She and I joined paws and arms to help our furry friends not so blessed

It was our goal to give love and support and aid…that was our joint pup test.

As Hundreds of Balloons released tonight into the dark Night Sky

There were tears…and smiles…and peace as each balloon sailed up on high.

We know you arrived safely in a heaven bound gondola ride

And Angels welcome you gladly while we kiss you our final Good-Bye.

Jen Taylor…you are a sPecial Lady. It’s a doggone fact you’ll be missed.

But one thing fer sure….you’ll continue to receive this dog’s daily kiss.

Rest in Peace My dear Friend.

Doggie Hugs And Slurpy Kisses!


  1. For thousands of years dogs have been bred. From time to time humans have done inbreeding even from their own ancestral lines and also by mixing them from various lines. Over the centuries the whole breeding process is continuing until the present day, resulting in a huge genetically diversity of all types of dogs, breeds and hybrids, no other mammal can present. Furthermore no speciation developed, despite the appearance of a wide variation of dogs no other animal could obtain. Just compare the extreme difference between a Chihuahua and a Great Dane.

  2. Hi Jill!

    It's me again, Tammy the Marketing Coordinator at The Uncommon Dog. We just finished another informative info-graphic that I thought you might be interested in. It's titled "How Dogs Became Our Best Friends!".

    If you love dogs, like we do, then you'll love this story. Recent scientific breakthroughs have increased our understanding about how dogs have come to play such an integral part of our daily lives. This fun and engaging info-graphic tells that story in a way that we hope makes it accessible and interesting to everyone.

    If you would like to share this info-graphic with your readers, please feel free to do so. You can find the info-graphic here: Again, all we ask in return is that you link back to, in some way, from your post.

    Also, definitely let me know if you do decide to post it because we'd be happy to spread the word again about the blog post by linking to it from our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages.

    If you'd like your e-mail removed from our mailing list, please let us know.
