It is kinda odd having your Birthday and Bridge Day one and the same, but it does limit the number of dates Mum has to remember - and with so many kitties and pups over the years, there are a lot of dates.
Friday was a sad day for Mum, as I guess many of you would know. Lots of happy memories, and then the memory of my crossing over, in Mum's arms, and Mum crying and Dad saying "she's gone". But, being me, and loving my food, I did have a lovely roast lamb dinner in honour of my birthday earlier in the evening, so I went happy and with a full tummy. What more could you ask for.
Tomorrow (Monday) will be Freya's gotcha day. I crossed on a Saturday, and Mum and Dad took me to Pets in Peace on the Sunday. They picked up my ashes on the Monday, and Dad found Freya on the Tuesday.
Mum was not sure - she felt it was too soon to think about another dog. She was still in shock and mourning me. But when they bought me home, and Mum put me on the floor for Valkyrie to say hi, she realised it was a good thing, because Valkyrie had been so down since I went, and Freya cheered her up and made her happy and playful again.
I had a great Birthday here at the Bridge with all my Rotties Rule Angel furrends - Bunny, Tucker, Parker, Bogey, Peyton, Tess, River and all the other wonderful angels here. We ate, drank and played lots of games, then napped in the warm sun with a lovely breeze and then did it all again.
Sending lots of angel dust to all my furrends.
Woofs and Rottie Leans, Sieglinde

It is my Angel's 17th birthday, and four years since she went to the Bridge. It seems forever, and yet only yesterday, because the memories are as vivid now as if it were only yesterday.
But Valkyrie, who was only a leggy teenager, is now a grown up five year old. And Freya, who came to us only days after Sieglinde left us for the bridge, is now a big girl of four - all seductive brown eyes and slobbery rottie kisses.
You will always be in my heart, my darling. We love you, and miss you, but know you are running free and happy at the bridge, waiting for the day we will all be together.

Saturday 9 September was Sieglinde's 13th birthday. We had a special dinner of roast lamb for her birthday, which she ate with her usual relish. She had been bedridden for sometime, but her appetite remained excellent. A little while after dinner I gave her a drink of water. She had a long drink, sort of coughed, and died.
We will all miss her greatly especially her little sister Valkyrie, but there is some comfort, if such is possible, that she died at home surrounbed by her family.
Sieglinde, you are my love, and I will never forget your love and companionship. Sleep soft, dear friend. I'm sure Foxey will be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge.
