Our Beautiful Girl Crossed Over The Rainbow Bridge Tonight...

It is with heavy hearts,
We had to say good-bye this evening.

To our beautiful rescued Rottie.
She served us well for 12 years.
Rasha, I will hear your bark,
See your shade tree,
Miss hearing your squeaky toys,
But most of all:
Miss you our Dear Girl.
I know your are running free tonight.
We know that Laddie, Ein Bischen,
Yoda, Striper and Angel,
Were there to greet you.

All our Love,
Mom and Dad

I'm so sorry. She looks like a beautiful friend to you. Dogs bring such joy into our lives, I know she enriched your lives tremendously.

Simone said...

Sherry, my twin had to put her baby down two days ago and it was such a tough decision. But, yet, she is running free and without pain! I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye for the moment but you will see her again soon.

Janet said...

Oh Sherry, :(

That is so hard. I am sorry.

We had to say good bye to our little cat. She was not very old. My son was 12..she died in his arms. :(

Looks like Rasha is in good company. :)

RIP Rasha.

Take care my friend, Janet W.

Je suis très triste pour vous d'apprendre cette mauvaise nouvelle. Nos amis à 4 pattes ont une place dans notre vie qui n'est pas en réalité celle d'un animal et lorsqu'ils nous quittent ils laissent derrière eux un grand vide...
Une pensée particulière pour vous, gros bisous

Sherry, I am so very sorry to hear this! sorry I haven't been by in awhile I haven't been blog reading in quite awhile. I hope your heart can find some comfort in your fond memories of her, I know how it is to lose a furry one:(

Celestina Marie said...

Dear Sherry,
I am so sorry for your loss. I know it is difficult as we are still so sad for our Miss Beazy who was hit my a car on May 22 and killed. I was away from my blog for a few weeks as we tried to pull ourselves together.

I know you are very sad and my heart goes out to you and your family. You gave your beloved baby a good and loving home and now she will live at Rainbow Bridge and my Miss Beazy Lee is there to greet her. Together they will run off and play happy and content till one day we join them. What a reunion it will be. Till then life goes on as we carry the memory of such sweet furry gifts we were so blessed to have in our lives.

I am so sorry my friend.
Sending hugs and lots of love your way.
XO Celestina Marie

Marydon said...

You know my heart is with you, sis. Have walked down this path one time too many but know that she is happily romping in doggy heaven with all her buddies.

Our pets are our family. Hearts are heavy when we lose them.

She was such a beauty ... I remember her well.

Prayers lifting for you ... hugs of love surrounding you & Tony.
Love you always,

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Sherry, I just want you to know how terribly sorry I am you lost your sweet dog. My heart goes out to you. There is nothing on earth like the love of a pet or the love for a pet, and it is a significant loss just as losing a family member is. That's because they ARE family members. My heart goes out to you across the miles, and I wish there was something I could do to ease your pain. Just know how sorry I am.

I have missed you, and I want to wish you a blessed fall. I still am computerless, but it has to be so for a little while longer. We had house repair expenses that exceeded the cost of a car. They had to tear off and repair thirty foot eaves! It was a shocker, but it had to be done. A few more are in order. Anyhow, I hope to borrow his computer and/or IPAD more so that I can at least visit.

Love to you...



Melinda said...

As you know I'm not following blogs anymore, but for some reason, now I know why, my heart strings were pulling me here today. What a gorgeous Rottie she is.
I have 4 more sleeps before my big surgery, and I wanted to let you know that I've now added you to my email list that Randy will be keeping everyone updated with. I have the email here on your blog is that one ok?? let me know in an email.
Sending you love my dear friend.
P.S. I should post something on my blog shouldn't I ???

Annesphamily said...

It is so sad losing a loved one that is a four legged furry friend! I am still grieving over the loss of Boots in March 2012.
Know how wonderful her life was with you and your family. It is a comfort I often think about to help me get through my tough days.
Hugs Anne

A Free Spirit Butterfly said...

My heart is with you dear one. I traveled that road and still find it hard to believe. My four legged friend was indeed a girl's best friend.

They are running free indeed. Imagine all the endless treats and rolling in the grass for days :-)

Sounds heavenly indeed.

Love and prayers,

Linda Primmer said...

Oh Sherry,
Renee and I are reading this together, we are both crying,
Renee, loved that song. I am so sorry you lost a loved one, they are family members.

Poor NYC , this storm has made an expensive's a real strange one. We missed it.

Have a nice Halloween.

Renae said...

Ah, Sherry - Thank you for joining and commenting. You have a fun and energetic blog and those are always fun to see.

I have relatives in Mesa that hardly ever come here because it is too cold for them. Utah is nice except for the fog inversions we get in the winter. Those are yuk!

Take care and come back often, k?

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Dear Sherry,
You lost all your links? Oh I am sorry.. I know change is good, but I am of the old school, if it works don't fix it...teeee

So happy to see you had come for a visit, and your kind words have warmed my heart.
Blessings my friend,

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh no...this was way back in September, and I missed this. I have missed YOU for so long my dear! I hope YOU ARE WELL? I was elated to see your comment last night at my blog. Life is busy for everyone, and I find it very challenging BUT REWARDING to try to keep up with others. Etsy and other art commissions that I have going are keeping ME GOING! Not to mention I am taking a writing course!

PLEASE COME BACK AND BE regular my dear when you can. WE NEED YOUR BRIGHT LOVE!!!! Anita

Holly said...

So sorry to hear about your pal. What a beautiful pup. said...

I am so sorry of your loss of your beautiful dog and buddy.

My son who loss his last dog also and he died on the back lawn. He held his paw and stroked him. Told him it was okay to go.Then his dog closed his eyes as they both looked at each other.

Long story was more to it but I have tears dropping so sad.. It hurts me to even think of saying Goodbye.

They are so much of a fammily to us all. Right..

I loss my dog many years ago.

So I really feel your loss. My tears of compassion for your dog passing are dropping as I make a comment.

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

I have been so behind with my blogging for various reasons. I am so sorry that I wasn't here to say how sorry I am. It was just a few months ago we went through this and I remember the heartbreaking feeling.

I'm also concerned now that you haven't posted since this post...I hope you are okay.

Marilou Bain said...

Been thinking about you Sherry and so sorry to see this so late, so sorry about your loss, I lost my little Ruby just before Thanksgiving, so sad.

Darlene said...

I am so sorry for the loss of a family member as pets are. We have lost a few and it is heartbreaking. I stopped posting to my blog in February when I joined a photo site and miss it and Ashley asked me about posting as she missed my photos so I would send her photos and post to her blog and followed her on Facebook. Today I went to see how she is doing and her Facebook account is gone, her Blog (I'm Just too Jazzed to sleep" and her e-mail address is non existent. I sure hate to think she is gone but sure seems so as I know how much she battled. The only thing I do not have is her phone number or I would call. I sure hope you get this note as you have not posted for a while. Please e-mail me: - You were a follower of my blog "George" about my cat and other things and I still have your follow on my blog. Thank you so much. Also feel free to call me at (916) 681-0249. I live in Sacramento County, CA. Thank you so much. If all is going well with Ashley and something happened to her computer or information, please pass my e-mail address along to her. I hope all is going well.

I look forward to a time that you can share with us what new things God is doing in your life .

Merry Christmas!

Bluebell Woods said...

I know this was a long time ago, I know for you its as yesterday and it still brought tears to my eyes. I can feel the pain whenever someone looses a loved pet for each of mine who have also gone ahead.

Gayla said...

Very sad to read this. Pets are our truest selves, little fur people who play no games with our emotions... They just love us, and we love them right back. To your good years together.

La Petite Gallery said...

Wishing you all the best for 2013
Happy New Year Sherry.
