Thank you so much, Dogster, for making me a daily diary pick! And thank you to my friends, O'Zaidie, Milton, Mr Jack Freckles, Hamish McDuff, Anya, and all of my other friends who made my day special. I am happy here at Rainbow Bridge. It is so nice and quiet, and I get to lie down in the sunshine and veg out like I used to do at home. It really is a beautiful place here. Thank you all for thinking of me.
love always,
Mister Ben


Missing you

Dear Mister Ben,
Yesterday was your two-year anniversary of your journey to Rainbow Bridge. Boy, it sure doesn't seem like two years. I will never forget the day when I met you, I fell in love. We had six beautiful months together, and even though you got sick with cancer, I gave you everything that I possibly could. I think you enjoyed your last months here with us. When the day came when I decided it was your time, it wasn't too hard a decision because I couldn't watch you in pain, and the medicine wasn't working. I knew if you went to Rainbow Bridge you would be pain free. That day my heart broke, to let you go. But it was the right decision. I love you Mister Ben, I'm happy you are at peace and I will never forget you as long as I live. Your memory will always live in my heart.

love Mommy Sarah


a very nice poem

Mommy saw this poem online and thought it was really nice. It's comforting for any Mommy or daddy who had to make the choice to let their beloved pet go to rainbow bridge. Here it is. I apologize, I don't know who wrote it.

Today I made a painful choice
For my little friend without a voice
I held you close against my chest
I saw you relax for your final rest
You looked at me with tired brown eyes
I felt you breathe just one last sigh
No more pain in the moment of release
Just gentle sighs and lasting peace
It was the hardest thing to let you go
I only did it because I love you so

Thinking of you all and sending love from Rainbow Bridge.
Angel Ben


nice shih tzu

Mommy has seen a shih tzu a few times now walking up and down the street with her human. She is soft and prettily groomed, and Mommy just loves her. Yesterday when they were walking, this nice doggie was walking with a leaf in her mouth, just walking up the street, proud as punch, with a leaf in her mouth. Mommy thought maybe it got stuck there, and she wasn't really carrying it. But today she saw the doggie again, and there she was, walking up the road with another leaf in her mouth! She must love leaves. Maybe it's like a prize to her. Mommy thought it was very very sweet and adorable, and it made her think of me. I know, Mommy. I love you and am watching out for you. You'll see me in the unlikeliest places.

love Angel Ben


a year ago (September 1st, 2010)

(from Mommy)
A year ago on September 1st, I first laid eyes on you, Benjamin. You were unsure, a foster dog who was losing his home, to come with another stranger. It didn't take us any time to decide that you were home for good. You had two pesky little sisters, but you didn't seem to mind. You took over Rudy's bed like you'd always been there. You were my little prince from the start, and I fell in love with you instantly. We didn't adopt you officially till Oct. 2nd, so I listed your "gotcha" day as then, but it was Sept 1st when I first saw you, first fell in love. SO in a way, you have two gotcha days.

I miss you more than imaginable, and I see you when we have a sunny warm day, or when I'm in the office doing my work, sometimes I feel you sitting besides me. And every time I have a cup of tea with biscuits, I know you would have been sharing it with me. I miss you terribly, love you more than anything, and even though it hurts that you aren't on earth anymore, I know that you are no longer in pain, and that's more important to me. I know we'll meet again someday.

love Mommy


Mommy misses you so much

Oh Mister Ben, it's been five months since you went to Rainbow Bridge, and my heart still breaks when I think of you. I know that's normal, and I did not want to see you in any more pain. You are in the best place now, full of love and kindness and pain-free in heaven. I can't wish you back knowing that cancer was in your lips, making you feel so bad. I am glad you are not suffering now, even though I miss you everyday.

I saw a bichon in the park yesterday, and his owners brought him over to me. He gave me kisses just like you used to, and his fur was exactly the same as yours. Just so soft and curly. He was almost as handsome as you, Ben. It was touching him that brought back all my memories. I am so glad I saved a snip of your fur and have it in my special memory box.

I love you Mister Ben, you were the best senior dog in the world.
love Mommy


New friends at the bridge

We have had a few friends join us as the bridge lately, including the lovely Miss Qwissy Edwina. We know her mom misses her a lot, just as Mommy misses me. Our friend Rocky posted this lovely poem, that we thought we should share, because it brings some people peace.

God's Garden

God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be.
So He wrapped His arms around you,
And whispered, "Come to Me".
You didn't deserve what you went through,
So He gave you rest.
God's garden must be beautiful,
He only picks the best.
And when I saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain,
I could not wish you back
To suffer that again.

oh Mister Ben, I miss you so much. I miss when you used to sit on the couch behind me in the study when I was marking papers. I miss you in the mornings, when you would follow me around until I settled down in one room. I miss your gentle "roof!" when you were still hungry and wanted a treat. I miss your warm body in that little red hoodie. You loved to be snuggly in clothes, and I loved dressing you up. You were my little man. I put some of your clothes away, but that little red hoodie is on my night table, and on the first few nights without you, I slept with it. I can't believe you've been gone almost two weeks. I think about you all the time. I love you Mister Man, and I know we will be together again some day. Tell then, run free, eat lots with your full set of teeth, and be patient until Mommy can come and give you a cuddle again...


Two messages from me in one week

Mommy has had two special messages from me since I passed over to rainbow bridge. She has been extremely sad and I was worried about her. Last Sunday, just a few days after I died, Mommy was sitting in a coffee shop, writing in her diary. It was cold, dark and rainy. As she started to write about how much she loved me, the rain stopped, the clouds opened, and the sun shone down, RIGHT over Mommy. It stayed that way for a good few minutes before the clouds closed over again. Mommy was able to sit in the window of the coffee shop and have that glorious sun shine down on her. I love the sun, and Mommy says it was a sign from me that I was feeling wonderful, that I was in the most beautiful place, and that it was okay that she and Mama had to let me go. It had been dark and gray and rainy/snowy for days and days, and the sun came out just when I knew Mommy needed it the most.

The second message I sent Mommy was in one of her nighttime dreams. Last night she dreamt that me, Izzy and Rudy were out in the backyard, running around and playing, and that I was SO healthy, that I was able to jump the fence and go visit my neighbour Terry, who I loved. I was trying to reassure Mommy that up here in the bridge, I get to play and run and bark all I want, and I am in no pain whatsoever.

Mommy hopes she has more happy dreams about me. She misses me so much it aches, but she knows now that I am in the most wonderful place, and that I am happy. I miss Mommy and Mama of course, but I know I will see them again someday.

love Angel Ben
