I’m not sick anymore. I live in a beautiful little box, at home now with my Mom and my Dad. I told my Mom not to be sad, because I am happy now and I will always be with her… in every blade of grass and every flower. I will be in the summer breeze and the spring rain. She will feel me in the crisp air of a winter night and the fog rolling across the park in the morning. She will see me in the sunlight on the floor, and hear my voice when all is quiet and still. I am in all the memories of our years together. I am free from all pain and will never die again.

Rusty August 19/97 to August 3/06
[image]
Rusty was a trooper who battled epilepsy through most of his life and in January fought back from a stroke even though the vet thought he wouldn't survive. We knew every day he lived from then was a bonus but the drugs he was taking to control his seizures finally took their toll and his liver gave out. With great sadness we said our goodbyes and let him slip away while we held him. Rusty was a small dog with a big heart and loving character and we were fortunate enough to have him in our lives. Enjoy your time at the Rainbow Bridge and know we will be a family again.

    I wish I could show you a picture of Spotsy. After ten years of unconditional love and companionship, I had to make the hardest decision of my life. She developed a cardiac defect that led quickly to heart and kidney failure. She was a beautiful dalmatian that could charm anyone, and still protected our family with a fury that none would challenge.

    Our trailer could not leave the drive without her in her chosen seat just behind me with her head on my shoulder, ever looking ahead to adventure. We saw her first when she was three days old, and brought her home at seven weeks. She had perfected the dalmatian "grin" and would greet me each day when I returned from work with a wagging tail, a whistle through her nose, and a big grin.

    It has been several weeks since we said goodbye, yet I still hear her at night by the bed, and look around expecting to see her when the popcorn is ready. I never knew I could miss a dog this much.

    From the first post on this website my signature has included her. And so it shall continue, but with a slight edit

    It took a while to post this but my favorite girl passed after 14 wonderful years. We thought about waiting until this fall to get another but we only made it 3 weeks until Nanook became a family member. I don't remember a puppy being this much work, but it is all worth it!

    Gone Too Fast

    The day ends and we think to ourselves that went too fast,
    The best of times fly by, the months and years zoom past.
    Almost sixteen years is now gone in a blink of the eye,
    Why can't we love them young, why do they have to die?
    The lessons I learned from Samson I learned very well,
    Getting past the grief is something only time will tell.
    The walks in the park, the many places we have been,
    The times that now only in my heart's eye can be seen....
    I cherished those special times since they never last,
    My faithful friend I cry now because you are gone too fast.

    In memory of my sweet Samson-Bamson....

    It has been a week now since we had to say farewell. Even at almost 16, he is gone much too fast.

    Chaos, our forever-loyal and much-loved Kuvasz, was released from his pain on August 22, 2006. The story of his determination, tenacity, and courage during a 7-month struggle with bone cancer was documented here on rv.net. Chaos joined Josey, the Norwegian Elkhound. We miss both of these dogs greatly and the impressions of their pawprints will remain forever on our hearts.

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
    You are his life, his love, his leader.
    He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
    You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

    Lucky- May 1995 to October 8, 2006

    I found Lucky, or I should say, she found me. Someone had dumped a litter of puppies near a busy road. 5 puppies ran out in to the road, 1 stopped at the center line and ran back in front of my car. I slammed the brakes on, sure I had hit the puppy. Here was a skinny, muddy black lab pup quivering underneath the front of my car. The other puppies weren't so lucky, they were hit and killed.

    I kept this little pup and named her Lucky.

    By the time she was 2, our vet told us she had severe hip dyplasia and wouldn't live a long life. He gave her about a 8 year life span.

    On October 8, 2006, Lucky's back end gave out. She could no longer get up. I got in her pen with her and she somehow crawled into my lap. She looked at me when those big brown eyes and said "Help me mom, I'm in pain, it's time."

    We took her to the vet and she passed away in my arms. She was 11 1/2 years old, she proved the vet wrong!

    She's free now of her crippled body. I know she's at the Bridge with her buddy Cocoa, our chocolate lab who passed away 4 years ago. I can see them running and playing again! Lucky loved to chew up anything plastic, she even ripped the bumper cap off the camper this summer and chewed it up. She especially loved my daughters' Barbie dolls hands and feet. My poor girls always had handless/feetless Barbie dolls because of Lucky!

    Lucky was always MY dog, she was always there for me. And I showed her how much I loved her by letting her go.
