   Leave a bone for Finnegan

Finny, Fin, and Mr. Man

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

November 6th 1997

To go with my mommy where ever she goes! And helping her make home brew.

I really don't like bunny rabbits to sit in my front lawn. Or other dogs to sniff or lick around my mouth. I know I smell good, but please.

Favorite Toy:
Any toy that is available at the moment if I feel the need to impress a human, they may give me a liver treat!

Favorite Food:
It's actually a drink, it's Starbucks. Latte's or frappachinos please.

Favorite Walk:
I love long walks at this park near my home, in the wooded area, as I have spotted what Mom says are deer, but I'm pretty sure they are just giant dogs!

Best Tricks:
Barking at you till you give me a treat. Especially at work, as I know no one can resist me.

Arrival Story:
This is the story my Mom tells, so I'll let her take over. In Dec. of 1997 I lost my most beloved heart dog, McGee, to pnuemonia. I was so upset and traumatized that I couldn't function. It was also the first time in 18 years that I would be without a setter. My husband found a wonderful place in South Carolina that happened to have Irish Setter puppies. I wanted a mix setter, and she happened to have a Red and White Irish Setter who "accidently" got pregnant by and Red Irish Setter. The puppies were adorable, and Finny was the fattest one. After 5 days of being in a daze, from losing McGee, on Dec. 23rd, I had a new Irish Setter puppy. Finnegan. He's been with me ever since.

Rainbow Bridge - Emi Fujita
Do you know now that I must be going To a place full of happy memories? In an emerald meadow by a Rainbow Bridge You can hear heaven's anthem on the breeze Well, a heavenly light falls around me In a twinkling my youth has been restored Over green hills and valleys once again I roam free Like the days when on eagle's wing we soared I'm surrounded by many companions And together we pass our pleasant days Every need is provided, there is nothing I lack Save for you to whose memory my heart strays When you're heaven-bound There's a place you pass through Called the Rainbow Bridge, I'll be waiting there for you Yes, I'll be waiting for you With a heart that's tried and true Till the day I can feel , once again, Your arms around me Fare thee well now for I must be going Dry your tears, no you must not cry for me Till the day that we meet again at long journey's end At the Rainbow Bridge, You know that's where I'll be At the Rainbow Bridge This heart waits faithfully

This is one of momma's favorite poems: Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.

The bridge

It's with a torn heart that I have to say Finny took the brave path to the bridge this morning. Turns out he did have hemangiosarcoma, and the pathologists just didn't find it in the section they checked. It moved to his liver, and he went peacefully, and quickly this morning. At least we had a happy past 2 months thinking all was ok. Thank you all for the kind words and prayers sent our way.

We got my bloodwork and urine results back that were checking my kidneys, and the vet says I'm good. Mom still wants to keep me on a low protein diet. But she's not as worried as she was. Our home is finally normal again. Or as normal as it can be with 6 dogs and 4 cats....BOL!
