Saying goodbye


25th October
I am ever so sorry to have missed the lovely evnt otganised by the sweet Vanessa of A FAnciful Twist.
Please, if you do visit for the party, do not think I couldn't be bothered.
Tonight I am saying goodbye to my sweet Taz that I have been fostering since July.
Tomorrow, I will be with him for his last little moment on Earth.

But, I would like him to be the star of this post.

I love you Taz.

26th October

My baby's gone

****

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....

How lovely. Well, the post is about Taz but it is about you two together. You fostered him and spent his last days in his life with him. This is really lovely.

I am so sorry, Patricia. There is no "just a dog." They are all so special.

Pauvre Taz!
Je suis sûre qu'il a eu une fin heureuse avec vous.
Je ne veux ni chien, chat, lapin etc... parce que je sais que je m'y attacherais trop et sa fin serait trop dure.
J'ai un poisson, j'y suis attachée aussi mais c'est différent car il ne fait pas de calins etc...

Athena said...

Oh, gosh, I don't think a blog post has ever made me cry like this one. It just brought all the pets I've loved and lost back to me, and how much I still miss them. Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a Rainbow Bridge?

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Ce que tu dis est beau et je souhaite de tout mon coeur que ce soit vrai... ton post me fait pleurer, car certaines blessures sont indélébiles.

Indigo said...

I am very, very sorry for your loss. I know that it is so difficult now...but in time you will begin to heal and you will smile at the memories of your dear furry loved one. I do think that he is now playing with some of my little ones in a colorful field of flowers...

Em sap greu. Es molt trist quan perdem el que estimem, vull creure que hi ha un lloc com el del poema de l'arc de Sant Martí on poder retrobar algun dia, aquells sers als que hem estimat, però també als que malauradament no han tingut aquesta sort.

carlarey said...

Sorry to hear that you have lost your sweet dog. He looks like a special little soul.

Shashi Nayagam said...

I can empathise with you Patricia. It is so hard when your very dear 4 legged friend passes away. I think I cried for almost a week when I had to say goodbye to mine.

Are you curious about me? said...

Such a sweet face.. You will miss him so much I'm sure. Sorry that I'm a bit late with my message.x Hope your OK. xxxx

Shaheen said...

Patricia, I am so sorry to learn of this. Hope you are Ok x
