    Default Godspeed Puppy.....1999-2012

    At 4pm today, 10/25, we send my sweet Puppy over the Rainbow Bridge.

    Loving, loyal, protective of her family....tennis balls were her addiction! Chasing squirrel, deer and fox.....facing off with a group of coyotes...if I ever wanted a buddy to walk in the woods, she was it! The 11 years we've been together went by so fast. How can it be that she's already 13 and failing?

    This year has been tough for her, age catching up....heart faliure making it impossible to breathe, medication no longer overpowering the effects.

    It's time to go, my sweet, sweet Puppy. Soon you will be free of pain and chasing squirrel, deer and fox over the Rainbow Bridge and into the big field in the sky.

    Miss you girl......

    I read but don't post often on these kinds of threads, but jingles for you and your pup, and for others who face the same situation of letting our friends go. Our cats have bells on their collars, so they jingle full time for everyone, as do I.

    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    I'm so sorry, hugs to you.
    I put my lab down 3 weeks ago, he was the same age as your puppy. He also loved tennis balls, hope tonight they are both playing with tons of them.

    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

    Default She's gone...

    She was ready to go, which made it so much easier to let her go. Her condition was rapidly deteriorating and she was likely not going to last the next few days.

    She was uncomfortable, but bless her, she was still wagging her tail and gave me a big sloppy kiss on the cheek before she left. I'll never forget that.

    Thank-you everyone for the hugs. Letting them go is part of loving them. It's hard, but life without them would be impossible!

    Run fast Pup, you're free.

    So, so sorry for you. It is not easy. Although you know the day will come, it is shocking and heart wrenching when it arrives. [[[hugs]]]
