Thank you Threedogs! We do have lots of wonderful memories, but we already miss him so much! What scares me is that his little sister also turned 14 last Friday, and I am now wondering how long I will have her by my side. :cry:

I don't think we ever stop missing them really, do we? :? I had a very special dog for 19 years and I still think of him all the time. That sharp pain of grief lessens with the passing weeks and months, but the ache of loss is always there.
Take comfort in knowing that you gave him a truly wonderful life and the best of care. :k

I own 2 German Shepherds, a Border collie and a Belgian Malinois puppy (5 months). We also have 2 cats and lots of brown house snakes in the garden. As you can imagine - there is never a dull moment at our house.

Hilda and Barry,
So sorry to hear your sad news about your dear little Rudolph. :(
Yes those little four legs just creep right into a persons heart and give a person so much joy and pleasure.
Thinking of you in this time. Sending you a cyber hug. :k

I just read on one of our popular internet news sites that US performer Fiona Apple has cancelled the South American leg of her tour to stay at home to care for her 14 year dog that is dying of cancer.
The open letter she wrote to fans explaining her decision was so beautiful. I wish I could provide a link. Do google it.

Quote:
Rainbow Bridge Poem

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 pets 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 dog, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Hilda and Barry:

I'm so sorry to hear about your beloved Rudoplh. I know only too well the emptiness that you are both feeling. Time will lessen the pain but you will always have your memories. Know that we are both thinking of you and sending a cyber hug :k
