Mommy and me are very upset. We are losing dogster. This site has saved mommies life so many times. She has been able to pour her heart out and say the things that no one else hears. How do you say goodbye??? How do you ever ever save the heart and soul that you have shared with so many people. To say we are upset does not even begin to put into words what is in our hearts. Mommy has sent every dog she has had on this site to rainbow bridge. With that in mind...think of the tears and hours of writing into words what her heart going to be lost. Lost forever. We have written to dogster and asked them to change their mind. We would even pay more to keep this site alive. So maybe if all of us dogs put our paws together we could change what it looks like is going to be. Please if you feel like us...write to dogster. Tell them not to do this. We need our friends and we need a place to come to when our hearts feel like they are breaking. We have shared so much with so many, laughter, joy, tears and heart break. We plead that this changes and dogster stays. We wuff each of you so much. With paws crossed in hopes that something changes...Rio and Pat.........

The moment that I saw you that first day I knew without a doubt that you were going to be special. You were afraid at first everything was new to you. You had never been in a house before....never had the security of knowing a forever home. But we found each other and with that first day a journey of trust, love and knowing you would never be hurt again started. I was always afraid of losing you. Your kidneys were bad but I took on this journey with you without looking back. I found the medicines you needed the special foods...and you found a home full of love. You never wanted for anything. With you by my side I was never afraid. You protected me and you grew to trust me and love me. I was given the greatest gift I could have ever received...I was given you. I hope you knew how much you were loved and I know you knew you were safe. I would have given anything to have made you well. I tried with everything I had to keep you well. We made it eleven years. You were a miracle, at least that is what the vet always said. I knew it was more than a miracle, it was YOU..your will to live and stay in the home you needed. I needed you as much as you needed me. I still need you my were such a good boy. I will love you till the end of time. Never forget that you were special. You were my Rio, my baby boy. I miss you sweet Rio. I love you forever and always. As the tears are starting to fall..I need you to know...I will never forget you. I promise you sweet Rio. You have my heart forever. Love, Mom


When will the pain go away........

My beautiful boy......can you feel my love. Do you know how much I miss you? I knew the day the vet told me you had bad kidneys that our journey would be a tough one. Yet you fought for me. You with those glorious eyes and beautiful nose and paws and fur....fought for mama. You tried up until the end to stay. I think you knew how much I needed you. You with your little wiggle butt and tried so very hard. I tried everything I knew to help you. I hope you knew when I was begging you to eat and hand feeding you even when I knew you did not want to eat...I hope you knew it was because I did not want to lose our battle. That last day after not eating for five days.....I knew it was time..yet my heart kept telling me NO. It was the hardest decision I have ever made. Some day I know I will smile when I think of you but for now the tears are endless. The sparkle of your eyes absent, my heart so empty. Just know my good baby boy...I will love you till the end of time. There are days I just want to give up and stay in bed and not face this home without you. I have to keep is what you would want. It is so hard here without you sweet boy. I love you my Rio....I love you so very very much. I will always wish that you could have stayed......but I know that you needed to go on this journey without me. Just may be gone in body...but you remain in my heart forever and always. Miss you my sweet very much.


I would have done anything for you........

These are the words I say to my mom and I thank her for giving me the one final gift that let me leave knowing I was loved beyond words and with the dignity I deserved.

From friend to friend
You're giving me a special gift.
So sorrowfully endowed.
And through these last few cherished days
Your courage makes me proud.

But really, love is knowing
When your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts
will only be in vain.

So looking deep into your eyes
Beyond, into your soul,
I see in you the magic,that will
Once more make me whole.

The Strength that you possess,
Is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done,
For it's the only way.

That strength is why I've followed you
And chose you as my friend.
And why I've loved you all these years
My partner til the end!

Please understand just what this gift
You are giving means to me.
It gives me back the strength I've lost.
And all my dignity.

You take a stand on my behalf
For that is what friends do.
You know that what you do is right.
For I believe it too.

So one last time, I breath your scent
And through your hand I feel,
The courage that is with you
to now grant me this appeal!!

Cut the leash that holds me here.
Dear friend, and let me run.
Once a strong and steady dog,
My pain and struggle done.

And don't despair my passing
For I won't be far away
Forever here within your heart
And memory I will stay

I'll be there watching over you,
Your ever faithful friend
And in your memories I will run
A young dog once again.

My beautiful Rio...I miss you more than words could ever express. I hope you are running through the waters of heaven, chasing squirrels and giving Lexey a hard time. There will never be another like you. You have my heart ...but you had that from the beginning. I love you precious boy...will you come in my dreams and share another moment with mom? I need to see your face...and kiss your nose, bury my face in your fur, right next to your heart. Even if just a would be heaven.


Missing you.......I will always miss you......

I just wanted more years with you dear Rio.......I would have given anything to keep you here with me. I love you sweet boy.......You are such a good boy...........

"Not the least hard thing to bear when
they go from us, these quiet friends,
is that they carry away with them so
many years of our lives. Yet, if they
find warmth therein, who would
begrudge them those years that they
have so guarded?
And whatever they take,
be sure they have deserved."

--- John Galsworthy ---


Still can not believe you are gone.........

They say time heals the heart...........time only makes it longer since I held you in my arms and kissed your nose. I would look into your eyes and tell you what a good boy you were, and how proud I was of you. What a handsome boy you are, and you would look at me with those beautiful eyes of yours and all was right in the world. It is total darkness now. I miss you so much. I miss your smell and your soft fur and your bark. I miss our slow short walks...on your terms............I miss when the phone rings that you do not howl any more....I miss you next to the bed at night, guarding me and protecting me with your life. YOU were a gift from God and I was so very blessed to have that gift. I get angry that you were sick, that your body failed. Your mind was still all here and your love for me so apparent. I know that last day when I tried to help you up and you tried to bite me..that it was not you. It was the disease. How I just held you and told you it was OK. Rio my boy...........I would yell that as I got out of my car to greet you before I ever entered the house. You would bark with excitement and wiggle your whole butt. I miss everything about you but most of all I miss your eyes........those loving eyes. Mama will never forget you nor will I ever stop loving you. YOU are my heart. Each day as I search the heavens looking for a sign, hoping for you to come in my dreams.....just remember........I only wanted you. I will always want you. I love you heart will never forget how hard you fought to stay. Mom.....


Rios ashes are home.......

I picked up Rios ashes......broke my heart I would have given anything to have him here with me. I miss my baby boy. He was such a hugh part of my life. I did not realize how much of my time was devoted to him. I would have continued forever if it could have kept him here with me. I cry every day, I just miss him so very much. I know it was what was needed, he had quit eating, and was having problems even getting up. I guess kidney disease even affects the joints. I would never have wanted him to suffer. He was such a good boy. I continue to be so very grateful for all the support everyone gave to Rio and to me. I will never forget all your love and prayers. Love to all and kisses to my beautiful angel. I miss you so very much my baby boy.


Life without you.....

Baby boy, life without you seems meaningless. I know I should have been prepared for this day but how do you prepare yourself? How do you make your heart ready for the emptyness that is left behind? I ask myself did he know how much he was loved? Did you know that last day it would be the last time we would look into each others eyes? When the light left your body only darkness is left. I miss you so very much. You are my heart and what will mama do without you? The tears are endless and the pain unbelieveable. I knew it was going to hurt....but I did not know how much pain my heart would feel. My beautiful Rio, I miss you and love you and I will for all time. I find myself doing such silly things. Looking for some of your fur that might be left behind....anything that was you. I cling to it and smell it and need so much just to hold you once again. Mama is silly.......but its because your leaving has left such an empty void. I will hold you in my heart forever and always baby boy. I will never forget your love. I was so very blessed to have been able to have you for eleven years. I know this, but it still was not enough time. I hope you are free from pain and running like the wind. Did Lexey and you find each other? No fighting two need to take care of each other until mom can find her way back to you. I love you, I will for all eternity.


For Rio.........I miss you baby boy

"I only wanted you"

I Only Wanted You

They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true
I never wanted memories
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you
A million times I cried
if love alone could have saved you
you would have never died.

In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken
and nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one
the chain will link again.

Author: Vicky Holder

If I could I would search the heavens, turn every star until I found you and then I would never let you go. My heart misses you so much Rio, I love you forever and are mamas baby boy.


the incredible loss in my heart.........

July 26th 2013 12:05 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Rio dear sweet baby boy, how can I begin to explain the incredible loss I feel in my heart? How do I continue to breathe without you here. I can not stand the pain, the grief is so over whelming. You were more than a were in fact the greatest gift I could have ever been given. You whom I devoted the last eleven years of my life, my baby boy. Far more than a dog....a fearless soul who protected me and loved me. Did I deserve such devotion? I can only pray that you knew the depth of my love for you. I can only hope in those last seconds you felt every bit of my love for you. How did I do this? You whom I have fought so hard to keep alive to breathe to wiggle butt dance, to go for walks and car rides and to give belly rubbs too, you whom I would have done anything for,,,I had to let go. I had to..I had no choice. You might have died a terrible death, I could see how you were starting to suffer and the pain you were feeling. I held you so close my heart right next to yours...praying you would forgive me for the decision I had to make. God how I love you and will always love you. I have screamed at could he take you from me. How could he not let me have you for more years? I love you baby boy. You were such a good boy. I miss your paw reaching out for more belly rubs and I miss your eyes so full of love. You loved me....this I much as I loved you if that is possible. Please baby boy...stay...........forever. I can only wish that many times did I look in your eyes and tell you that? Stay with mommy I needed you so much to stay. Now you are no longer here and my heart is filled with such pain. I can not eat, or sleep. I can not think of going on another day without you by my side. I really do not know what I am going to do. To live without you seems pointless. People may say that the love I had for you was crazy but if that is crazy then I want a trillion more years of sharing my heart and home with you. I look at your leash and break down in tears...your doggie bowl that which I did for so many days hand feed you, even when you would look at me and I could tell you did not want to eat , but for me you would take another bite. How do I explain how deep and devoted my heart was to you? I can only tell you I would have gone on hand feeding you a million years if you would have only kept eating. You were tired...and now my life is empty without you. God give me strength to keep going...I love you Rio. I will always love you my baby boy. I miss you so much.
