184/365 Goodbye

Making the right decision for your pet is very often one of the hardest things we ever do. .

THE RAINBOW BRIDGE POEM

 When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

 All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

 You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

 Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

    Even though he’s gone, I can still hear him meowing from the living room.

    Great … that old S-O-B cat is haunting me now.

    It never gets easy when we lose a much loved pet, however many times we go through it. Thinking of you with deep feeling for your loss. RIP Vanny.

    CRYING, CRYING.
    Why do we have to get so attached and then there gone. When I lost Sadee I lost a part of me. I said to myself I would never let myself get attached again and here I am again with George. I dread the day something happens to her. I have always said that He reminds me of that Poor Cat from Sweet Home Alabama and everytime I see that movie I will always think about Vanny. RIP Vanny

      At least if I ever want to remember him, I can always watch the movie. :) We are going to let the kids create a memorial stone for him this weekend. It will be nice to have that. I do miss him already. More than I thought I would.

  4. So very sorry Lee …. this must be difficult. Sending you lots of {{{HUGS}}}, from us both.

      Deb, many thanks to you and John. I know time will make it easier but for now it’s pretty sucky. He had such a huge personality that just not having him yelling at us from another room makes the house seem kinda empty.
