Good-bye My Little Buddy!

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

This is my granddaughter Bryanna and my little dog Chica. We have had her for 10 yrs. Earlier this year she started having seizures because of a soft spot on the top of her head. She had some really bad seizures today and passed away. This broke my heart as she was my was my best friend. She was very sick, but somehow she managed to get to me and laid at my feet and passed away. A pet can mean as much as any family member and that is the way she was to all of us.

Today we lost our dog, but tomorrow should be the birth of our newest grandchild. That does help to ease the pain a bit.

    I am so sorry about Chica. The heart ache is so real after 10 yrs. as I well know. I lost my dearest Angel of 10 yrs. very suddenly less than 2 yrs. ago and it is still like yesterday. You have some wonderful news coming your direction with the birth and I know it will ease the pain. Blessings to you and your family.

    I'm so sorry you've lost your furry little friend! Those of us who have a pet we love understand how hard it is when we lose our beloved pet.

    It's true that the birth of your grand-child will help distract you a bit. It sure is something positive to think about!

    Oh I am so sorry I have lost a beloved dog so I know how painful it can be .This is the poem my vet sent with my beloved dog's pawprints she would have been happy to welcome your Chica and make her feel at home while she waits for you.
    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....
    My deepest sympathies hugs,Cheri
