God saw that you were getting tired,
And your cure was not meant to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come with me."
A Golden heart stopped beating,
Adoring eyes went to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.
- Carol Aberst

I am so sorry to have to tell you our poor sweet Maggie girl went over the Rainbow Bridge. She had to have emergency surgery but with her other health problems, she just didn't have the reserves to recover. The vets were wonderful and did everything they could but it was just too overwhelming. We got to hold her until the end which was a blessing. I think she was comfortable and knew mum and dad were there loving her to the last. Keffer misses his sister but doesn't mind getting all the attention either.  we are happy that we were able to make her last year a good one - taking her swimming, teaching her some tricks, making her pretty with brushing that she loved so much.

My sweet handsome boy, Tucker, passed away on July 20. His toothy grin and his always wagging tail will be sorely missed! He was adopted from GRIN in 2005 and was the best companion to my children and me for all these years! He loved everyone, his toys and our Shorkie Max. He was always first to greet us at the door with toy in mouth to show us his “prize.” He loved walks, and food - lots of food! His sweet spirit will be forever with us!
