Default Gretchen is gone

We just couldn't have her suffer any longer. A very kindly acting person this afternoon, took her away and miraculously she went with him willingly.
She had perked up long enough this morning to come see what kind of bacon was cooking for breakfast, so I gave her a couple pieces of the real stuff.

I asked God that if there is a dog heaven, to please tell her we didn't want her in pain anymore and for him to arrange it where we could visit when I get to people heaven.
I know she's not a person but this is so hard. If we visited and I went to use the restroom she sat outside the door till I came out, she growled at anyone who looked shady that approached us on the sidewalk. And believe me she had her opinions. Nobody messed with me when Gretchen was on duty. A loyal guard and the only love that money can buy.
RIP

I'm sorry you lost your precious four-legged family member. I know how difficult it is and I'm thinking of you.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved pet.

I have been there and done that so many times. I believe I should have had two put down that I just couldn't seem to. The last one had "Rage Syndrome" and I had to have him put down seemingly in the "summer" of his life after he had seriously attacked me twice. Other than that your last paragraph describes my situation well. He walked with me so many times on the green way and all...

Sorry for your loss salty, I know what it's like to lose a beloved pet.

Hope this helps.

Quote:
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....

Thank you so much, friends, for truly you are. I will copy the rainbow bridge and save it.
My heart is full of both true sorrow and thankfulness for these kind words. God bless you all.

My "Gretch" is getting to be an old girl too.

When her time comes, it's going to rip me.
She's been the only constant present being in my life for the last 13 years.
