So Very Sad Today

My beloved miniature “American Eskimo” dog , Lacie died today. She was 12 1/2 years old and a shelter rescue from Carson City.

She was my good buddy for over 10 years. We walked thousands of miles together and traveled across the country several times.

Right now I am heartbroken, so no posts for a little while.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

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….

    I am sooo sorry. I just lost my little girl 2 weeks ago to cancer. She was 13 years old and I had had her since she was a tiny little puppy. She was the love of my life and I am absolutely devastated. I still cry and miss her so much. Please accept my heartfelt condolences, I truly understand the agony you are feeling.

    Hugs
