    A lovely, moving thread and I so hope my darling cat has now found a good spot at Rainbow bridge and is soaking up the sun in between bounding around after mice and birds.

    Dylan died just hours ago and the house is empty without him - I'm desperately hoping he'll visit us in our dreams. I've buried him gently in the garden in his favourite spot, wrapped in his favourite blanket.

    Rip My baby Chichi, a month ago already :( You would've been 8 in December.

    I hope you've found somewhere warm and comfy to rest and you're chasing butterflies till I see you again.

    so sorry for your loss x

    Loosing a pet is so hard :-( I have a little feral cat, now totally domesticated with kidney problems from when she was 7 or 8 she is now nearly 15 but really not looking forward to her leaving us ( as no one does of course) but she was one of my families first cats....she is the last of that generation :-s
    End of an era is fast approaching, but hope she has another year or 2 more with us x

    Handling the death of a beloved pet is never easy, but grieving for that pet is an important part of your recovery. natural depression treatment

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.



    By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
    Is a lush green meadow where time stands still.
    Where the friends of man and woman do run,
    When their time on earth is over and done.

    For here between this world and the next,
    Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
    On this golden land they wait and they play,
    Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

    No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
    For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
    Their limbs are restored, their health is renewed,
    Their bodies have healed, with health imbued.

    They romp through the grass, without even a care,
    Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
    All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
    Then all of a sudden one breaks from the pack.

    For just at that instance, their eyes have met;
    Together again, person and pet.
    So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
    Their time of parting is over at last.

    The sadness they felt while they were apart,
    Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
    They embrace with a love that will last forever,
    And then side by side, they cross over together.

    This, and the rescue verse, made me cry. So sad to think of, but comforting all the same. Thanks for sharing.

    We lost our beautiful boy 10 days ago, until we read this we were inconsolable.
    His earthly remains are back home with us, and we know now where his spirit is, waiting for us to join him.
    Miss you so much buddy, till we meet again. xx

    it's been 5 years since my best friend Toby my white staffy went to doggy heaven. I still miss him every single day. I love u Toby and I miss u so much. if I could bring you back home I would and i would never let you go. you where my baby and even though u were a naughty boy u were a angel in my eyes. u was always by my side and u never let me down. I used to dress you up in silly clothes and u loved posing for the camera. I miss u sitting on my passenger seat with your head out the window and miss your warmth at the end of my bed each night. until we meet again my baby sleep tight. R.I.P I love you xxx

    over 11 years for me, you never forget...

    but your best mate wouldnt want you upset would he?

    did he used to come and put his head on your lap or tap you with his paw?..

    or lead you to the door, pester you for his dinner?..

    Crying just reading these as they remind me of the card that I got from my vet when my Chico had to be sadly put to sleep. She had blood clots that paralysed both her back legs, I hope she is running free over the Rainbow Bridge



    :crying:

    I was crying reading the story, and all the other posts.

    I was looking at these because I know I have to go and discuss with the vet on Tuesday (tomorrow Monday is a public holiday where I live) as I think Albatross is now asking me to help her on her way... She's nearly 17, a SharPei-GreatDane cross. She's now blind, deaf and senile. I get the feeling she's hanging on to life to try and protect me. She was 'dumped' on me as a four week old pup, and all these years with me - so a difficult decision. I'm wondering how Mofli will cope without her (at twelve and a half, he's no spring chicken either...).

    Sorry - I just had to share these feelings...

    Im the last person to say this, but....be strong for them, this their last need, they depend on you

    will the vet come to you so the dog feels at home and not surrounded by strangers?
