We's coming up to the 1 year anniversary of Rinky's passing. Mommy been feeling sad cause she misses Wrinkles so much. This time last year, was the beginning of Rinky's last days here on earth. She started getting sicker & sicker & it was torture on Mommy & me's. I's likes to remember better things, like how every morning we'd wakes up & I go over & wash Rinky's face. I would slowly lick her entire face with my little tongue. I would wash her ears too. Since she was taller than me, she would lower her head so's I could reach. I think she found this very relaxing. You's still my heart Rinky.

Yes she was Lil Bear. I's tried washing Ceel's face but she's not having it! After I would wash her face, Rinky would then wash my face. It was a daily ritual we did almost every morning. Everyone who witnessed it thought it was really sweet.

It is wonderful to have all of those precious and treasured memories to keep forever close to you.

I get washes from one of my kitty brofurs, and sometimes I wash him back, but it is not the ritual like you had with Rinky...

Awww...Ebby, we miss Rinky too. On Easter Sunday, all of mom's family came over to our house. My aunt, mom's sister, saw the Rinky magnet on our fridge and asked mom "Who is Wrinkles?" Mom said "She's a friends dog who passed away." My aunt said "Wow, she must have been very special. You can just tell." And mom's mom said "Yes, she was special. And very loved. You can tell." And then, they had an unplanned moment of silence staring at Rinky's magnet while mom cooked dinner.

Aww Ebby Rinky is still with you guys. She is watching over you guys and making sure there isn't too much trouble to be had and that the snake doesn't get crazy on you or your Mom.

Missy cleans my face the same way you cleaned Rinky's, heck even one of the cats clean my face that way. Mom says the cat's breath is stinky and she isn't doing my any favors but, I wouldn't ever stop her from doing it.

Rinky lives in our hearts, she was a very special pup.
We think often of her...her name brings a smile, but we can't begin to imagine how much you and your Momma miss her.

Oh Ebby,

You are a wonderful pup and your love for Rinky is as strong today as ever.

She's watching over you and your Mom and Ceeley and Paw Paw.

She loves you all dearly from the Bridge.

Dear Ebby,

Rinky tells all her Bridge pals stories about how much the two of you loved each other. She misses you as well.

Dear Ebby and Mom
I spend lots of time with Rinky here at the Bridge and she talks about her family all the time. She is always with you and watching over you. That is what we Angels do we watch over our families and send them all our love. My Mom has Rinky's picture right on the refrigerator at home and she says hi to her everyday. We will never forget her and she is in our hearts all the time.

We remember crying with your mama (kinda like we're doing right now). It was hard on us too cause we loved Miss Rinky a lot. She will live on forever, cause she's right here in our heart.

So sorry for your loss. It hurts our mama's hearts so much. My mama cries too every time she visits my page.

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog, they take a piece of my heart with them. Yet, every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog and I will become as generous and loving as they are." Author unknown

Me and my momma miss Rinky very much. She was one of our first pals on Dogster. My sister Lucky Ducklin' is starting to walk a little slower and her muzzle is white and mom is keepin an eye on her..Momma thinks it is so unfair that pups don't live as long as peeps but she says it is cos we pack so much love and fun into our lives and hearts and bring such joy to our companions.. Rinky is always with you and your family and all of her pals!!

ebs, there are three photos of you and rinks on my fridge, two above my bed and one in my wallet!
prunkles is still with us in spirit, i feel her watching and can hear her soft huffy chuckle at my antics often.
she has visited me in my dreams many times too.
i will always cherish both of you!
it sure doesn't seem like a year has passed since prunks trod the hill up to the bridge.
she doesn't want us to be sad, her smile greets us every morning! it is the most wonderful doggie smile ever created.
