    I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am.

  2. baselle Says:

    I am so sorry. I thought Brinks was a great name for your dog, just like you thought Morgan was a great name for my cat. So much for jinxing each other. At least you know that you did everything you could, he died in peace and at home.

    Oh, so, so sorry. What an ordeal for you all. I hope the knowledge that he lived a great life with you will bring some comfort.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. This is a poem that my inlaws received from the vet after losing their pet dog of thirteen years. I hope it brings you some comfort.

    The Rainbow Bridge
    inspired by a Norse legend
    By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,

    Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.

    Where the friends of man and woman do run,

    When their time on earth is over and done.

    For here, between this world and the next,

    Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.

    On this golden land, they wait and they play,

    Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

    No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,

    For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.

    Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,

    Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

    They romp through the grass, without even a care,

    Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.

    All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,

    Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

    For just at that instant, their eyes have met;

    Together again, both person and pet.

    So they run to each other, these friends from long past,

    The time of their parting is over at last.

    The sadness they felt while they were apart,

    Has turned into joy once more in each heart.

    They embrace with a love that will last forever,

    And then, side-by-side, they cross overů together.

    I'm so sorry. I didn't see this till now and your story brought tears to my eyes. Still, good for you, for adopting a dog who needed you in his last days. I am sure you were the best thing that ever happened to him.

    I'm so sorry. I missed this entry somehow, but caught reference of it in your most recent entry. Tears in my eyes too. We have a few older animals at our house and we know the time will come at some point. How comforting to know he had so much love in his life at the end.
