'If I Broke Your Heart"

I thought that I wanted to be like all the other girls,,,,
You know,,,, The SunFlower Sisters.,,,,,,
They are all so smart and popular and have boy friends.
They go to slumber partys.
Some of them have sock monkey beds.
I always thought I wanted to be like them.

And so when Toby Moses Man asked me to be his girl friend,,,,,,
I was so excited,,,,, because I was going to be popular like the other girls!
But,,,,,I made a mistake.
A big mistake.
I made a hasty decision with out thinking.
I did not think of all my friends, that have been in my heart forever.
I was so wrong.
I wanted to be like everyone else.
I was so wrong.

The truth about myself,,,, is that I am four years old.
But my four years old, is very young.
I am young, like a naked baby bird, with no feathers.
I cannot fly.
I am too young to have a boy friend.
I just know how to play in the forest.
I want to play with all my friends and send bubbles in the sky, and special cards.
I want to love everyone.
I want everyone to love each other.
I was not thinking clearly,,,,, when I was trying to be like everyone else.
I did not think at all.

But then,,,,,,, I heard the wind blowing in the tallest trees.
I started listening ,,,,,,
I heard the voice of the forest as it said "Tweedles ,,,,,we need you".
I instantly remembered my calling,,,,
" I am keeper of the Forest and the Sea, and all the creatures that live in them."
I made a mistake in trying to be someone, that I am not.

I just sent a bubble to Toby Moses Man,
explaining to him that he can be a special friend to me, like all my other friends.
I cannot be his "girl friend".
Toby Man being the gentleman that he is,,,,
sent me a bubble saying "It's all good, we will be friends."
Toby Man, may need some cheering up,,,,,,,,

I must stay true to myself. I must stay focused on my calling.
I must now go into the forest and look for moon beams.
I must go spend some time with Mother Earth.
If I broke anyone's heart,,,,, I am sorrys.

Please send the Power of the Paws to Lily- Toby Man sister. She was in ER today.
Nitey Nite

Dearest Tweedles~
I think the most import thing we all need to do here in the blog community is remember why we are blogging, be kind to one another, and most importantly stay true to ourselves.
We all started blogging for the same reasons.
We all have passions.
But we all must remember, everones passions are different.
Best part is... people will love you for who you are no matter what...
if they are REAL friends!!

Hey Tweedles...
I think I understand you a little better now....
We love you just the way you are....don't go trying to be like the others...unless you really want to...just be yourself.
"Why change a winning recipe?"
Sending lotsaluv from across the big wide ocean" I sing:
"For your friends are my friends,
and my friends are your friends:
The more we are together,
the happier we'll be"

Don't go worrying your pretty head about conforming.

Tweedles - you are so sweet and it's nice to hear that Toby Man is so understanding. We are sure that you two will be great friends :)

You have to be true to yourself first and foremost!

Pugs & Kisses,

Yoda & Brutus

Hi Tweedles! It's so easy to get caught up in what others are doing and forget your real purpose in life. It takes a big pug to apologize and you knew you had to and you did.

All the creatures of the forest and the sea depend on you and I know you would never let them down. Don't worry sweet Tweedles. Toby Moses knows that you have the biggest heart of them all and would never hurt anyone.

I'm so sorry to hear about Toby Man's sister and I'm sending good vibes her way.

Stubby xoxo

We all are supers excited for you to get our BIG FRIEND package...Toby is included...he didn't mean for you to conform if it wasn't something you didn't want. Anyways, Lily is doing fine.

The Slimmer Pugs, Kitties, and Mama said...

I's meant to say Toby is included in the previous thought...not that he's coming to you in a package...sorry Tweedles to scare you likes that... he's our brother and we will be keeping him as he's our I donts think he could've taken a breath in that smaller than hims box. Sometimes you wish things were brought to yousa attention before you least we re-read after the fact.
Licks you Laters,

The Slimmer Pugs, Kitties, and Mama said...

Ohsa...and one more ting...we Slimmer Girls are not dating any pug-boys or other boys. Just to let you know that being part of the Sunflower Sisters is all bouts being true to yourself.
Much luvs and hugs,

Tweedles, the fact that Toby Man understands that your special friendship will have to do for now means that he is indeed a special friend. Not everyone understands that not everyone sees things the same way but it doesn't mean they dislike someone. I think the forest friends and the ocean friends will be very happy to know they can still count on a Tweedles! :)

Sequoia & Petunia & Emma said...

Tweedles we think you shoudlfoolow the calling and do whats in your heart! We loves you for that and will always love being your friend.

We lives in the Northwest and once Mom n Dad gets a house we can't wait to have special forest friends like you and hopefully some sea friends too!

Hugs to a super sunflower sister!

Kelly said...

Miss Tweedles, you are so so sweet. None of us would ever want you to be like everyone else, because we like you for YOU!

Toby sounds like a sweetheart and I know that he understands. You have done the right thing by following your heart.

Your sunflower sister,


Puglette said...

big puggy hugs!!

Tweedles, you may be young but you are very wise. You have so many friends, and a 'boyfriend' is a very important decision. Just be yourself and everyone will love you!

Hank said...

Tweedles, that's a smart call on yer part. Yer too young tuh be saddlin' yerself with a 'Course, I AM kinda protective o' you since I see you as a little sister.

agent99 said...

Tweedles, although you are young, you are also very wise. Only a strong and confident pug can fess up when she has made a mistake. But I think, no, I KNOW you ahve more than enough love in your heart for all you special friends, the trees, and the forest, and a boyfriend, if that is what you want.

Dear Tweedles,

You are so cute! I love your nose and such meaningful eyes. I hope you feel better.

Wiggles and licks,

Roxy Ann LaRue said...

Hi Tweedles its me Roxy, I am not sure what a boyfriend is since I am only 5 months old, but it sounded interesting...mommy said to have lots of friends and family in your life that they will always be by your side. So I'll listen to mom and follow your lead and just have lots and lots of friends. Thank you for being my friend, hopefully we'll meet in person one day.
Licks and love,

Arlo The Pug said...

Tweedles, you're the best! You don't ever have to worry about being unpopular, mom and I LOVE to read your post about all of your amazing adventures! also, I understand your predicament. I am too young to have a girlfriend, and mom says I have to wait. It's no fun being the only one without someone, but it helps to know you're not alone! I'm right there with ya! Hope you have a great week! Love, Arlo.

If this old world were filled with souls
with hearts as big as Tweedles
the earth would fill with light and joy
and give smiles to all the people

The forests would grow all tall and green
the oceans would be sparkling
No creatures large or small would ever
be without our caring

If we could give a fraction of the
love she gives to others
The world would be a better place
with hugs for her sweet mothers

Love AnnieBee

Toby was barking up the wrong paw. oh well...

Molly the Airedale said...

Being just friends is good, Tweedles! Toby Moses is a good friend to understand this and he will wait for you if you truly loves you.
Our paws are crossed for Lily!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Barbara said...

I'm sure he understands Tweedles. You're still a young girl, with your whole life ahead of you. Can't get tied down now! You have much more poetry to do.

You fill me with joy.

Trixie and Minnie too!

Manon said...

I am also four and young ..well... I'm actually immature and a!! I hope you're waiting for me!! : ))))
love, Otis

Chatty Crone said...

Tweedles - this is what I tell my grandson - God doesn't make mistakes and he doesn't make junk - so be who God made you - be the best you can be. Don't worry what others think. BE YOURSELF - you're awesome.


Smushie Ranch said...

Now Tweedles, why would you think you need to change?? Betty doesn't have a boyfriend and Gunther doesn't have a girlfriend. It's no big deal.

We love you just the way you are Tweedles!

Stella, Gunther and Betty

Diane said...

Oh my sweet Tweedles...such wisdom for a very young girl. I can tell your moms have raised you right! ALWAYS...yes yourself!
I am sure Toby is heart broken but I know he understands. Aunt Diane loves you, angel!
xoxoxoxo to your moms too!

sandy said...

Good words to live by. Be yourself, be true to yourself. Look in the mirror and say, I'm as special as I can be, cause there's nobody quite like me.
Quick note to invite you to hop over to my blog where I'll ad updates regarding Jan at Animal Talk, my SIL so you can keep informed on her condition post surgery.

Sandy said...

Little are so special to everyone and it was sweet of him to ask you to be his girl! You are so smart to tell him what's in your heart in mind before it went too far. Kisses!

♥ Sallie said...

If we were all the same, the blog world would be a boring place! LOL!

But if I have a slumber party, I hope that you will come!

We love you!

Simply Pug said...

Tweedles. It's a good thing to be truthful. Don't ever toy with another ones heart. So stay true to yourself like you said. We are proud that you did the right thing. We hope that everything will be alright with Toby Man's sister and so we can all go out there and play in the forest together!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

My sweet little friend, I somehow missed your post this week. I wanted to tell you that I looked up the name "Tweedles" on the internet and one place said that your name means "chirp or sound of a bird." I think this is who you are. You are like a bird--You are a keeper of the forest who calls to everyone to remember how important the forest, the Sea, and all the creatures that live in them are--And these birds are not meant to be caged, or belong to one group--You are to be who you are, and that is the best gift this world can have...

..smiles all around dear friend from the far side of the big U.S of A.!

Becky said...

We love you and you will know when the time is right for these kinds of things. You have the whole world at your feet and that is how it should be! Don't grow up too fast. You're just a baby still!
