The Thoughts Of A Cranky Old Soul (Even If I'm Not That Old)

Thank You, Dear Friends

I haven't been able to come here sooner because I'm still so
heartbroken over Strider's passing. I find it hard to come
here and see pictures of him so alive, yet knowing I'll never
have him here with me again. I miss him bringing me his blue
hamburger stuffie to throw for him over and over and over again
while I watched TV. I miss him following me everywhere. I miss
him licking my feet. I miss his cranky growl. I just plain miss
him, and everything he did, so much.
I want to thank all of you who sent gifts, comments, and paw-
mail. They are all so appreciated. And to those who set his
pic as your main pic, you touched my heart so deeply I couldn't
help but cry.
Thank you all for caring about my dear Strider.

I love you all-

Dear Esther,
We know there are no words will comfort you...
But we know Stirder had enjoyed his life with the love you gave him since he was bron in your kitchen.

I wrote this to someone else.....but it is as valid for any person or so loved Fur......

Listen... in the darkness.. just before you go to sleep.. as you start to drift... listen.... feel... touch.... they come to us.. in the half sleep... we can be with them....

Takes practice...

but it happens.

Then.. they came to us in dreams.. and we can play and hold.. and just "Be".

You just have to be patient.. tune your senses... Love never leaves.... pawprints never ... ever .... fade.

The recovery process takes time and you can't do anything to rush it along. Most of us know what you are going through and our hearts go out to you and your family.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose, Puffy and mom

We are praying for you and your family as losing Strider to rainbow bridge is still so fresh. I am here with Strider up in rainbow bridge and we are enjoying all the freedom up here, but we'd like you to know that we are there with you too - every time you think of him he will be right there for you.

Oh Esther I had no idea that Strider made his journey to the Bridge. I am so so sorry.... You had a bond that can never be broken even by death. Know I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time. Godspeed dear friend.

Dear Esther,

We know how hard it is to lose one of our beloved pups and it takes time, lots of time, to get through the grief. Our hearts go out to you with hope to send you comfort.

Remember always...

All that love could do was done...

and Strider will always be with you in your heart and with all his pals in our memories.

Hugs & love,
Sully, Socks & Mom

Strider and I went on a great adventure. I wish I could tell you the trouble we got into, but I'm going to keep that a secret between me and Strider . . . for now anyway.
