If you are reading this, it is because my Momma is telling you that I crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on March 31, 2012--exactly 14 years, 5 months to the day.
I was one of 13 puppies born on Halloween. I chose my momma and daddy--wouldn't let them even consider any of my sibs. As we left I snuggled into my momma's arms, and never looked back although my mama dog ran alongside the truck. That was the day after Christmas, 1997.
I lived a charmed life. Momma and Daddy took me everywhere--I was never boarded when they traveled. I earned a bat charm for my collar when we went caving in the Ozarks. I tried to bring home a dead dolphin from Dauphin Island, Alabama. My hotel skills were impeccable. Always a welcome traveler wherever we stayed. I never met a stranger in my life!
I miss my preschool children. Every Friday I spent the day with them at school. I spent my last Friday eating birthday pizza and hunting chipmunks with my children.
On Saturday I said good bye to Daddy before he went to work. An hour later Momma brought home groceries and put them away. I guess I looked strange, 'cause Momma lifted me on to the futon. She put her arms around me, I looked at her, and took my last few breaths. I passed easy and peaceful, leaving my family exactly the way I came into it: snuggled in the loving arms of my Momma.

OMD! We had no idea Gingy passed away. Mommy's eyes got leaky reading this. March 31 is Mommy's birthday. Rest in peace dear friend. I'm sure Wrinkles was there to greet you when you made it thru the Great Master's doggie-door in heaven.
Ginger, you are so loved. You and your family shared wonderful times together.
Our thoughts are with you and your family.
Wonderful pups like Rinky have welcomed you to the Bridge. There you are loved just as you were with your family.
We had no idea that Ginger had left for the Bridge. My heart goes out to you. She is now at the Bridge with all the other Angels watching over you and waiting for the day you will be together again.
