I love you very much Martini and your Brother and I will see you Again!
Nipper and his dad.
Thanks so much, Al. I know she missed both you and her brother Nipper, when you movied back to Boston. She never forgot ya, as you could tell from the phone conversations she and Nipper had on speaker phone. Here's a link to the video I made with both of them, called Friends Nipper & Martini
She stopped eating. No pain or lethargy, just refused to eat. The vet did blood work and said she had extremely high liver enzymes that indicated liver cancer. She will be sorely missed, and I can't see well enough to post much today. Hope to be back in full swing by tomorrow.
I LOST MY DOG ABOUT 7-8 YEARS AGO TO A FORM OF CANCER, AND I WAS THE ONE WHO HAD TO TAKE HER TO BE PUT DOWN. TOUGH FEW DAYS. CONDOLENCES
OH DEAR....SO GLAD SHE WASN'T IN PAIN...TAKE YOUR TIME. AS JIM SAYS IT'S TOUGH...HANG IN THERE...IT TAKES TIME, BUT MEMORIES WILL BRING SMILES INSTEAD OF TEARS
So sorry for you loss, Cat. Seems to be a lot of my friends losing loved ones recently.
Thank you all for understanding. Jim, Dale handled the rotten task of taking her for the Euthanasia and it takes a really strong man to be able to handle that! The loss is devastating but like Karen said with the graphic the pain will end, and we will always remember her with profound love.
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....
Oh Theresa, that's a beautiful sentiment! I'm trying to keep from crying, so the swelling in my eyes goes down and allows me to post the site. . . but this touched my heart and I'll make certain Dale reads it as well.
I'm glad it helped. I always say, if my fur babies aren't in heaven, then I don't want to go there. Bless you, my friend.
