    I am so sorry to hear that your beloved pet has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I have a lovely golden retriever girl waiting there for me with her favourite toy in her mouth, just like she used to greet me at the back door each day when I came home.

    Take comfort in the memories of your Sophie. It's rough for a while I know.

    My condolence......we buried our 'four legged boy' about a month ago. I thought my heart would break! 'Timber' was a 4 1/2 y/o Retired Greyhound. The most incrediable dog I have ever owned or loved. He went quickly and suddenly..while I was at work. My daughter called me on my way home...I had to pull off the road I was crying so hard.
    We have adopted 2 more Retired Greyhounds and our hearts are full again. Ginger and Okie are the love of our life....beside our 'human kids'..:chuckle
    Pets are such a joy and blessing to our lives. I hope you will give hope to another stray. Just know that your Sophie is playing with my Timber and together....they will greet us again!!

    God bless you, and my prayers are with you. As I speak, my beloved cat is here with me, understanding me as many humans never will. Animals are heaven's angels, sent to share our joys and pains and nourish our souls. Your angel is truly an angel now, and with you still. Hugs and Kisses, JeannieM:kiss

    We lost our sweet Rottweiler nearly 4 years ago and it still hurts. We got our Bulldog almost 3 years ago and she has so many of the same "odd" personality traits that Axel had. She's been a comfort and a constant reminder of the days we spent with him. I understand your loss and I will keep you in my prayers.

    I found a kitty on the side of the road almost a year ago and kept her. She's been a great addition to this "dog" family! Foundlings are sometimes the best pets.

    Take care.

    I am so sorry to hear of your friend's passing. I felt the same way, when my best friend killed himself in 1989. Today, I am still sad when I think about it because I was trying to get him on the phone that same day and I could not and maybe if I was determined to talk to him, he would not have killed himself at work.

    I feel your pain bandaidexpert, I wish I could cry your tears. I know you are hurting but think about the treasured memories that Sophia has left behind.



    I feel your

    My condolences. Pets are such a blessing, and perhaps bring the closest to unconditional love many of us will experience this side of heaven. You have a four-legged guardian angel watching over you from the Rainbow Bridge now.
