I thought that this year I'd write to you all, to celebrate my two years here at the Rainbow Bridge. I know that Mummy doesn't 'celebrate' it, and I'm sorry that she was so sad at the weekend, but I really do have a wonderful life here.
I was always afraid of everything, because I couldn't see properly and my neck hurt me. Now I can see everything very clearly, and there is no more pain. My luxating patellas are cured too, and so I run with Daisy Dog and Emily, and all the friends that we've made here. Emily in particular has made a lot of friends, because she was always very sociable, and as always I get to join in and go along with her. That's the easy way to have fun and meet pup pals!
I watch you at home all the time, especially Poppy. I can't believe that Poppy is a Cavalier! She looks more like....a rotweiller!! That was just a joke, Poppy, you are beautiful, and you and Amber have brought Mummy so much happiness after all the heartbreak that Emily and I are just thrilled for you all.
I know it says on my Dogster file that I'm four, but of course we don't age here, we are always fit and well and like puppies with our boundless energy. I'm still a quiet girl, because that's my nature, but you need a good mixture of personalities here to make it interesting.
Please don't be sad, Mummy. Remember that I am happy and out of pain, and that I am never far away and will wait here at the Rainbow Bridge until we finally meet again one day. Until then, have fun all of you, and don't cry Mummy because although I was only with you for such a short time, it was the happiest time of my life on earth, and it forged the bond between us that will last forever.
With Rainbow Kisses to you all, and extra love to Daddy, as I know he's not feeling well at the moment.
Your everloving Phoebe
PS Bogie and I shared a cake, and it was scrumptious!

My beloved Phoebe,
I can't believe that it's your birthday already. You were such a tiny, quiet little girl that you seemed like a puppy your whole time here with us. You were like a tiny china dog, sitting so beautifully in the front room, and you and Emily seemed closer than any dogs I've ever had. You'd spent so much time together that you were more than half-sisters, you were like two halves of one soul.
Perhaps that's why Emily had to leave us so early too, because you needed her. That's what I think to myself, on my sad days, that you and Daisy wanted Emily to be with you so that you could all carry on as you had done here, with Daisy running the show and you two playing around her.
Of course, now you're at the Rainbow Bridge you can see without Em's help, and run freely because your patellas are now strong. That makes me happy, and I know that you are all three in a better place, and able to live life to the full.
Amber and Poppy are two gorgeous girls, and you would have enjoyed having them around. They have brought happiness back into the house, but you will never be forgotten and will always hold a very special place in my heart. You stayed such a short time, but made so many happy memories for us all to keep.
Have a truly wonderful birthday, sweetheart, and make sure Daisy doesn't guard the cake!
With all our love,
Mummy & family

Dearest, dearest Phoebe,
Mummy is very, very sad today and cried at breakfast time. It's one whole year ago today that you went to the Rainbow Bridge, and she and I have missed you every single day. We love you so much, dearest Phoebe, and we're all happy that you're now free from pain and able to see clearly again, and really we're being selfish when we're unhappy as you're in a much better place now, but it's on days like this that we understand what they mean when they say 'love hurts'.
Mummy is certain that you and Daisy spend all your time together, and that you probably have your very own bowl of pot pourri for breakfast, lunch and tea! You always loved curling up next to Daisy, so now you can do that without me trying to push my way in!
I have bouncy Amber here now, as my new friend. She is great fun, Phoebe, and not two until December so she's got A LOT of bounce in her. Of course, she's not my half-sister, as you are, and she hasn't been through so many things with me as you did, but she's still a really terrific companion for me, and for mummy too. You'll be relieved to hear that she's a great help in the garden! (I expect you've seen that from the Rainbow Bridge).
Well, that's it really. I just wanted to send you a line, using your diary, to tell you how much you are loved and missed, and how we will carry you in our hearts for the rest of our lives. You were so sweet and special while you were with us, andeveryone adored you. I bet they do at the Rainbow Bridge too.
Keep watching over us Phoebe, especially over me as I'm more timid now you've gone.
Love you forever,
Emily, Mummy and the rest of the family.
