Sebastian

We lost Sebastian yesterday, April 4th, 2013 to severe pancreatitis/ketoacidosis. He was the best dog I ever had. Not because he was good but because he had so much personality.

He was an ornery little pug. He stole everything he could carry and would not give it back until he got a treat. We keep bologna on hand to keep him from running the streets and so did our neighbors!

He loved everyone.

He stole my purple house slippers and kept them for eight years. Like a special treat he carried them wherever he went.

We miss him. We had only one choice, euthanasia. How do you kill something you love soooo much? I will forever miss him.

Laura,

Sebastion sounds like quite a character. And you know the answer to your own question. Seeing someone you love suffer a slow and painful death is horrible.

Now I wouldn't be a bit surprised if, when it's time, you meet him at Rainbow Bridge... and he's got a purple slipper.

Misty Kitty

My dear cat Missy passed away two days ago. She was 16 years old. I found her when she was just a kitten. I loved her so much. My heart is broken. I feel so lost without her. She had bone cancer and was in pain for her last days, so I know that she is in a better place now. I don't know if I will ever get used to her not greeting me when I come home from work. Rest in peace my dear friend.

Dear J - My condolences to you. I know how hard it is to walk in after work without those greetings and it takes a long time to get used to.

I do hope you believe in Rainbow Bridge and can picture her doing all the things she did before she got sick because she isn't hurting at all anymore. And she knows you love her.

Jessie Went to Rainbow Bridge Today

by Janet Mills
(London, UK)

I lost my beloved dog Jessie today. She was a nine year old Staffie and the most beautiful ginger girl that I ever knew. My loyal friend had a huge heart. She was trusting, giving and full of love for people.

It was hard taking her to the vet knowing I would not be bringing her home again - probably the hardest thing I have ever done, but having watched her go downhill with kidney failure at a rapid rate I knew it was time.

Sometimes you just know. The look in her eyes said that she had had enough. I knew she would have stayed for me as long as she could but I couldn't be selfish. I had to do what was best for her.

Now, having read the rainbow bridge poem has brought great comfort knowing that she is free from pain, able to run, to eat, to drink, to play, to know she is not alone until the day comes when she spots me and we can once again spend many days of sheer pleasure together again..... I shall treasure her memory, because she taught me so much, and brought me through some very hard times in my life.

So until we meet again Jessie, just know I thank god for having you. You are a special lady.
