    Our pup of 11 years crossed the "Rainbow Bridge this past weekend, Ivory was a rescue pup and her first 5 years were rough. She came to us very damaged and with much love and understanding, she became the most loving pup we ever had. She took right to camping and enjoyed sleeping on the "cloud". We use air mattresses on our bunks and would nestle right in on my wife's bunk. So for now, every time I see a big fluffy cloud in the sky, I know she's on top of it looking down at us wagging her tail and smiling. 0819170850-00.jpg

    So sorry about your loss. Their little paws leave marks on your heart but also the biggest smile on your face.

    It's always difficult saying goodbye to a trusted friend. A very good friend of mine sent me this the last time I felt your grief....

    A Dog's Prayer

    Treat me kindly, my beloved master, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.

    Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I should lick your hand between the blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me do.

    Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footstep falls upon my waiting ear.

    When it is cold and wet, please take me inside... for I am now a domesticated animal, no longer used to bitter elements... and I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth...
    though had you no home, I would rather follow you through ice and snow than rest upon the softest pillow in the warmest home in all the land... for you are my god... and I am your devoted worshiper.

    Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for although I should not reproach you were it dry, I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food, that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side, and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.

    And, beloved master, should the Great Master see fit to deprive me of my health or sight, do not turn me away from you. Rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me the merciful boon of eternal rest...and I will leave you knowing with the last breath I drew, my fate was ever safest in your hands.

    --Beth Norman Harris

    The hardest part of being owned by a pet is having to say goodbye.

    It is difficult to lose a pet. I have shed tears for several we have had to put down. Sorry for your loss.
