It's a strange day today. All day was strange & hard for little me to understand. Mommy was so sad even though she didn't cry as much I knew something was wrong. Rinky was panting lots & I licked her face this morning but mostly I let her rest.
Mommy took us to the park this morning. We did a little sniffing but not like other days. It was just odd.
Then this afternoon Paw-Paw shows up. Rinky went up to him & he gave her a big hug & massaged her body. Then Mommy said it was time to go. 'Go where I's wondered?' We were loaded into the Jeep & Paw-Paw drove. When we got to where we was going, Mommy got out but Paw-Paw stayed with us in the car. Then Auntie Letty (Ceeley's Mom) showed up & was there with us. Then Mommy shows up with two ladies. Mommy opened the back door to the Jeep & gets inside with Rinky & me. Then the other ladies get in. They's talk nice to us & they's start petting Rinky. Auntie Letty come over & gets me & we goes stand nearby with Paw-Paw. Mommy stays with Rinky & the two ladies. I can hear Mommy telling Rinky what a good girl she's always been & how much she loves her. From where Auntie is standing with me, I can't see Rinky. But then Auntie moves to the side so I can see.
I see Mommy hugging Rinky & talking to her & telling her everything is gonna be okay. Then Rinky turns her head & is looking staight at me. I's staring right back at her & flash her my smile. Then just like that, Rinky's head goes limp & Mommy starts crying so hard.
The ladies leave & Mommy tells Auntie to let me in the Jeep with her & Rinky. I's sit by Mommy & Rinky. Rinky looks to be sleep, but I's sense it's more than that...much more. Rinky is there but not there.
The ladies come back out & Mommy gives Rinky one more hug & the ladies take Rinky away. We drives home without my best friend & dog-sister.
The house is too quiet.
God has a new angel tonight Ebby. You're mama is going to need you more than ever. Sending our love to you.

I'm so sorry, Ebby. My Momma can't stop leaking. Rinky was a great dog, and you've been a wonderful sister. You'll see her again someday. Until then, give your Momma lots of love.
We love you, Ebby. You and Rinky both.
Dis r so bery sad, Ebby...We wish we cood hug yu an' yur Mommy wite now...((((((((((hugs))))))))) wif wotza wuff an' pwayers fur all ob yu. Yu an' yur Mommy stay close, 'kay?
Ebby, sadly I know just how you feel and exactly what you went through today.
My grandma, Cookie made her journey to the Bridge just over two years ago and I, too, watched her slip away. Then just over a year ago, my new sis, Rosie went to the Bridge.
Please know, Ebby, that Rinky will always be with you, watching from above. At the Bridge she will make new friends and take part in great adventures.
She will know that you are thinking of her and she'll feel the love you have for her.
I'm so very sorry, Ebby. My pack sends it love to you and your pack.
Your pal, Riley
We are so sad for your loss..I know how hard it is to lose your sister...We love you and your in our pawprayers..

I'm so sorry, I know what you are going through. We're here for you guys and Momma is praying for you!
Dearest (((((((((((((((((Ebby)))))))))))))) My eyes just won't stop leaking. Sending you and your mummy and family much love sweetheart. Know that just because you can't see your Rinky doesn't at all mean that she's not watching over you and loving you from the Bridge. She's young again and healthy up there, and loves you every bit as much when she was wearing her fur on this earth, and the best thing is, she always will. Much, much love from me and my Mummy xoxoxoxoxo
Oh Ebby we are so sorry and sad. Rinky is a beautiful angel. She will alway's be in your heart and soul. Stay close to your mommy. She need's you very much.
Love, Pookah & Family

OMD! My growlmy can hardly see her keyboard to write you this little note I am dogtating. Sending huge (((((hugs))))) to you Ebby because you are missing your sisfur so much, and more (((((hugs))))) to your mommy, because she is just so terribly sad and feels empty, too. But she gave a huge gift to Rinky, the gift of freedom from pain and suffering and sickness. It has a big price tag, it costs a huge hole in the heart...and now you and us dogster furends will try to patch it up just a bit, so it doesn't hurt her too much.
And you will help her retain all the many happy memories. No hole in the heart will ever be able to leak out the memories that are buried deep in there like a precious treasure.
Now Rinky is a doggy angel! She will come by you often and woof gently in your ears, to say hello, and that all is OK with her, now.
Now I have to go and dry off her leaking face windows...
Lots of leaky eyes up here in North Texas... we're sending big giant ((((((((HUGS)))))))) to you and your Momma, Ebby... Heaven got a very sweet new angel today....
Finley and her Momma
don't know what to say.... ;o;
Love and a careful hug for your mom and dad and a kiss for you, Jolanda and sonja
This is so sad. Momma is crying. Lots of big hugs for you and your momma. We'll all miss Rinky.
Sweet Girl... in you soul you gave Rinky the permission to leave. You with your love let her Pass. That is a great and special gift.
I am SO glad you were able to say goodbye and let her go.
Grieve.. but Celebrate her life too.
We love you

And if I go, while you are still here...
Know that I still live on,
Vibrating to a different measure,
Behind a thin veil that you cannot see through.
You will not see me, so you must have faith.
I will wait there for the time when we can soar together again, both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to the fullest.
And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart,
...I will be there.
