Max the big babyWe got our big old Max from a women who was moving to the city and couldn't take him with her. Her was large...130 pounds and and indoor dog. I really wasn't crazy about having that big of a dog in the house but he was just so sweet. We took him home with us and he instantly became one of the family. We had four other dogs at the time and they all loved Max too. He was just the sweetest, biggest baby and we loved him dearly. We only got to spend a little over three years with our Max. He slipped and tore both ACL's and also had bone cancer. It was a very heartbreaking end, but he hung in there as long as he could. My vet was kind enough to come to our house last Monday (2/22/07) and release Max from his pain. I held my big baby, stroked his face and told him how much I loved him as he passed away in my arms. It was so hard but I know that he is happy now and I told him to make sure and find me when my time comes. I will miss him terribly!
Mighty Mitzi RoseMy sweet Mitzi went to Rainbow Bridge this past Monday (06/18/07). She was a 13 year old black and white Pekingese that I got when she was 8 weeks old and very much a one owner dog. She was my lap dog! She was in a lot of pain and misery and I had to make the decision that was the best one for her. I asked God to send me a sign that I had made the right decision and today I found this story about Rainbow Bridge. Thank you so much for printing this story on your website. It has made it a little easier to deal with now that I know about Rainbow Bridge. I lost another black and white Pekingese, Doogie Domino, that I had for 15 years back in Oct 2005, the same time my dad passed away. Doogie and Mitzi grew up and old together and it's very nice to know they are back together and waiting for me at Rainbow Bridge. Mitzi and Doogie, Mama loves you so much and misses you every day! Until we meet again at Rainbow Bridge, you both will always hold a special piece of my heart with you!
MikaMy sister had to put her cat Mika of 14 1/2 years down on February 16, 2009. It was the hardest thing she has ever had to do. Mika (Beeks,) as she was affectionately called, was a wonderful companion for my sister and nothing can take the pain of losing her away. I remember Mika attacking our feet as a young kitten and I hated it because it hurt so much but those are the great memories that stay with you always. Mika had a good long, healthy life and she is always loved and will be missed. Rest now Beekies, you will forever be with us.
Miss you Fi.We always think that we have so much time, and the future. I never thought my time with you would be cut so short. I miss you so much, and think about how empty home is without you.
miss you SadieSadie you had a rough start in life. You were shot with a pellet gun, had your tail broken and left to heal on it's own, and starved to the point your growth was stunted. But I hope when you found your way to your new home here with us you knew you were loved deeply and protected from the past. She was here for 9 years and then past away from FIP. I'm so sorry your ending was as rough as your beginning. We all loved you so much and miss you. Mama Brenda and Papa David
Missin MarleyThe worlds best dog... Marley touched the heart of every person he met. He enjoyed all aspects of golfing, from watching it on television, to riding in the golf cart with your dad. You made everyone you met want a border collie. You were the most gentle, loving, smart, beautiful dog, ever. I miss you every second of every day. You will live in our hearts forever. I miss you.
Missing youMy mom got married to a guy with two dogs. One was kind of mean. Her name was Mindy she was a Mini Poodle. I got to know her obviously because I lived with her. Then she started getting nicer and nicer to me. She would put her two paws up on the couch and I would pick her up and put her on (she was around 30 or 40 pounds). In the car she would act like she was a feather she would jump in my lap. She slept with me a lot of nights I grew to her and she grew to me. Once I had a friend over she was trying to get my attention so she tapped my toe well... she tryed Mindy stood straight up getting ready to bite her. Then one day my grandfather came over to give my something I did'nt know he was there he came over and tapped me on the shoulder Mindy bit his toe and wouldn't stop I was laughing, my grandfather said its not funny stop her, I was on the floor laughing so hard. She was 14 years old so she was getting pretty sick and my mom said we got to put her down. I started crying. Then I thought she wasn't serious so after 10 minutes or so I was ok. Then I overheard her on the phone. It was scheduled for her to be put down on Wednsday so that day she had to go to work I faked sick so I could spend the day with Mindy and I did. My dad came and took Mindy with him to my moms work when he went to pick her up I didnt know that they were going to the vet right then. I called my mom crying really bad. She took Mindy to my house so I could say goodbye. I couldn't talk I was crying so hard. Well I said goodbye to her kissed her hugged her. I cry still everyday when I hear our song and see her picture. :'(
Missing youThis is me again. Again, like I said my Mom got married. He had two dogs. This dog was the sweetest ever. She used to just sit with you lick you and all that. She was a Pomeranian. She had a thyroid disease which caused hair loss it did not affect her health or anything. She got to be 11 years old and she started having seizures. My mom told me what to do in case she was at work but it was too hard because I would be crying. I loved her with all my heart. I would get out her toys and it was funny because she got so scared when it would squeak. In the car every summer we would go out to ice cream a lot she would jump on my lap and give me the puppy dogs eyes. So I let her lick it. She would literally bite the ice cream until it was half gone. She loved to just sit on someones lap and get petted. One day I faked sick so I could stay home and say good bye. I spent the whole day with her. I cried most of it but... I got to love her. And I always will. Thank you for taking time to learn about my dog and how much I loved and still love her. :)
MollyI relocated from NJ to TX. It was hard being away from my family and friends. I saw the picture of Molly on Petfinder and drove 131 miles to go and meet her. She had been living in a no kill shelter for 3 years and it seemed she needed a friend as much as I did. When I got transfered to NC I had to return her to the shelter. It broke my heart. But within a month I had found a place to rent that would allow my dog. I had her flown to me. Later that year I moved back to NJ and this time she road in the front seat of the U-haul with me. Seemed everything had come full circle when I moved back to Texas on November 6. Once again Molly flew right along with me. On Dec.3, while I was on vacation in NJ the kennel contacted me with terrible news. MY dog had collapsed and was undergoing exploratory surgery,within 18 hours she was gone.I am so sorry Molly that I was not there with you. Please forgive me. I cry for you every day and pray one day we will "travel" together once again.
MollyMolly was a wonderful dog. She was loyal and loved to play fetch. She came to us at 4-5 years old about 4 years ago. Someone was wanting to give her a new home. This year she became sick. We tried everything to help her get well. On January 24, 2008, she was acting like she couldn't hardly move at all and we were afraid she would not make it through the weekend if she wasn't seen, so we called the Vet. We left 15 minutes later, and on the way to the vet she passed away in the car before we could get there. My youngest child is 5, so he basically grew up with her and was so devastated. She will be so missed by our entire family, and we will never forget her.
