Too much in two months

It's been a double whammy: Lost my MIL quite suddenly last month, and just this week we had to put our beloved dog down. He was 16. He had a stroke and couldn't walk his last day. It's so painful to see his toys. We are blessed with a young dog who is lively but there's still a gaping hole in our hearts. I just had to share with some people other than family.

Very sorry to read this, Boopuff, about both your mother-in-law as well as now your dog. :hug:'s My best for your husband, you, and family.

As for your beloved dog, just remember......he will be there, at the Bridge, playing, waiting......

Rainbow Bridge

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....

I’m so sorry for your great losses. It is a lot to loose, and I know it’s hard, especially at this time of the year. I wish for comfort to you and your family.

Thanks for the support and kind words. You know just being on this board, dreaming of Disney takes some of the edge off things.

**hugs** we stopped adopting pets - the loss kept getting harder - then, my son moved home for medical reasons - now we're getting attached to our son's dogs - just never stops.
