RIP Gracie

October 9th, 2007 at 12:48 am

My beautiful girl Gracie. 13 years of joy, friendship, dedication...Gracie has survived cancer (they said 6 months...she lasted 6 years...and would have lasted more Im sure)...heartworms...blindness and selective deafness (Grace, get off the response....but a slight squeak of the fridge door...lo and she'd come...) She nursed her babies and was a great 90 lb 'lap dog'. She was a true 'lady' and a reliable friend...

FIL did not see her when he pulled into our driveway yesterday...nor she him- she was blind...

I will miss Grace like a dear friend and family member... taught me what true Grace was all about, right up to your last breath. I will remember you always. Sweet dreams sweet girl!

    So sorry, we lost our little Lucy about 4 months ago. Pets are such a part of our family and we miss them so. I know you will miss her so much.

    My heart goes out to you. Losing a furry family member is just as hard as losing a human family member.

    Sorry to hear about Gracie Ray! And to have it happen so suddenly after all she survived! Frown What a hard loss to take. I feel for you buddy! {{BIG HUGS!}}

    My heart goes out to you. Few things hurt so much as losing a furry friend. They're such givers of unconditional love that they leave a large hole when they go. May your memories of her fill that empty place and give you peace.

    Thanks everyone. It has been almost a week...and I am missing her badly. I know she is playing with all her furry angel friends somewhere. I appreciate your kind words of friendship...that is why I love this site...I am not always the best money blogger...but I have sure formed a great respect for all of you and some true friendships too!!Hugs

    Hugs to you! Sorry, just catching up now. We have a dog who's nearly 15, also suffering from "selective deafness"! Isn't it funny how they can hear when they want? Wishing you fond memories during this time.

    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....
