   Leave a bone for Fauna ~ In Loving Memory

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Rainbow Bridge
Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

August 24th 1995

Eating, a good scratch on the back, tummy rubs, toys, attention and love

Going to the vet!! Sharing attention and loves with the other dogs, strange men

Favorite Toy:
Her Kong Toy

Favorite Food:
Whatever we are eating

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere, she loves going for a walk no matter where you take her!

Best Tricks:
She doesn't really know any tricks yet, she is an old rescue dog and we haven't had a chance to teach her yet

Arrival Story:
We knew she'd spent her life in a bad home where she was ignored, starving and had heartworms. We were able to rescue her out of that hard life and give her the home she deserved. She is a wonderful dog and she now has a loving forever home where she is always inside with us and gets lots of attention and love and toys and two meals a day... all things that were lacking in her first 10 years of life.

Fauna is a wonderful, loving, affectionate dog. After we rescued her, we treated her heartworms and took care of any other vet needs she had, and we had to work on putting weight back on her, as she was super skinny when we got her -- you could actually feel every bone through her skin (when they weighed her at the vet, they said that she was 20 pounds underweight). She also had to go to the groomer, and it took two trips to get her matted fur out and to get rid of the smell of the dirty kennel where she'd lived for years. She now lives in luxury and is a cherished member of our family. She is healthy and happy and spoiled. We love this dog tremendously and are so thankful that she is a part of our lives. Update: On July 16, 2007, Fauna died peacefully at home, and I was at her side. She suffered from degenerative myelopathy, and this disease was slowly paralyzing her back legs. We had her for 14 blessed months, and at the end, she could hardly walk and would drag herself and fall down. I could not watch her suffer, and so I arranged for her to pass on at home. The vet came to our home and helped Fauna pass over to Rainbow Bridge. This was the hardest thing I have ever experienced, the decision was the most difficult I have ever made. I know she is now with Misti, young and healthy and running around, happy at the bridge, and I am comforted by the knowledge that one day we will be together again. Fauna... I love you, always... your Mommy.

Forums Motto:
Pet me!

Things I love about my new life...:
Being an indoor dog, especially when it is so cold or really hot outside... Love and affection and petting whenever I want it... A Mommy and Daddy who love me very much... Daily games of ball in the grassy backyard... Rides in the car to get a Hamburger at the drive-thu... Never being all by myself anymore... walks... Being Cherished for the first time in my life... I am a happy doggie!

Fauna's Days

Mommy has a doggie who is like me...

I am always watching over Mommy from here in Heaven and I see something I like very much.....

Mommy's doggie, Autumn, is very much like me!

She is half German Shepherd, and I am a German Shepherd!

She is protective and has a big alarm bark, just like me!

Mommy is safe when she is out with Autumn, just like she was safe with me at her side. Autumn alarm barks at scary men, just like I used to do! I am glad to see that Mommy has a good protective doggie like me.

Autumn is silly and kinda floppy like I was! She runs and plays like me too!

My tail is wagging here in heaven as I watch my Mommy and Autumn together.

Love, Fauna


Talia Tagged me!!

My friend and fellow angel Doggie, Talia, tagged me to play a game of summer tag!!

Here is how you play: There are five questions for you to answer, and then you tag your pals (as many as you like!), inviting them to answer the questions in their diaries and then tag their friends!

The only new rule is...if a pup pal has been tagged by ANY OTHER PUP they CANNOT be tagged again. (No repeat tagging) So, let's start and have some summer fun. TAG YOU'RE IT!!

Let's play!

1. WHERE DO YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT? I sleep here in Heaven... and I can sleep wherever I want! I can sleep on a Heavenly bed with feather pillows all over it, I can sleep on a cloud, and I can sleep with Angels watching over me all the time!

2. DO YOU HAVE A NICKNAME(S) THAT YOUR PAWRENTS CALL YOU? Yes... it's silly.... "Fauna-bo-bauna" heehee!


4. NOW THAT SUMMER IS HERE, DO YOU HAVE A SWIMMING POOL YOU USE WHEN ITS HOT? There are the most beautiful pools, and lakes, and oceans, and rivers... the most beautiful places to swim here in Heaven! I visit them all!

5. WHAT'S ONE THING YOU DO THAT DRIVES YOUR PAWRENTS CRAZY? I was the most barky dog when I was on Earth!! Whenever I was really happy and excited, I would bark and bark and BARK!! And it was VERY loud! Since I went to Heaven, I passed the bark-loud-when-happy job on to Amy, and she is doing a wonderful job of it!

Now I'm going to tag some of my friends!!

1. Jodie
2. Elroy
3. Buster
4. Max

Yay for summer tag!!


I'm at Rainbow Bridge now...

Here I am at Rainbow Bridge. It is so beautiful here, it's Heaven, and there are so many wonderful things for a doggie to enjoy. There are woodsy trails and meadows and lakes and streams and soft beds (yup, doggies are ALL allowed on the furniture here!) and the most delicious cookies you can imagine. I have an Angel who takes me for walks (no leashes!) and throws the ball for me and pets me whenever I want. But the best thing I've found here at Rainbow Bridge is my fur-sister, Misti!

When I first got here, I felt sad because I just left my Mommy and she was very sad. But my Angel told me that Mommy would be okay, and that we would see each other again someday. My Angel then led me to the edge of a soft green meadow and pointed across it where I could see another doggie resting under a tree. I took a few steps forward and sniffed the air... and then I knew, it was Misti, my fur-sister! I barked! I leapt and ran towards her. She stood and I saw her tail begin to wag and she leapt and ran to me. We played and chased and rolled in the fragrant summer grass, we were "dogs in the grass" as Mommy used to say when we were on Earth. Then our Angels took us for a walk in the woods and then gave us the tastiest cookies I've ever had.

Misti and I then looked down on Mommy, and we could see her tears. We said a little prayer that she would feel better soon, and that she would know that we were safe and happy and healthy and young here at Rainbow Bridge. We will see her again someday, and until then, we will be her Guardian Angels, me and Misti, Mommy's fur-angels.

Wags from the Bridge, Fauna
