One year today my beloved boy left us. We miss you so much. We know your tree will flourish this year and we will think of you as we watch it grow. We love you and miss you Bru.


Love,
Your family (still missing you greatly)



I'm Still Here

Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!

Broken Hearts mend in time?

You have to deal with loss but I don't think your broken heart ever fully mends from a loss so profound. Tomorrow will be a full year since Bruno left us to join his sisters at the Rainbow Bridge. I can't even comprehend the fact he has been gone so long. We all miss him so much and wish his big goofy grin and childish antics were still being enjoyed every day. We have memories but we don't have our big baby boy. Bruno, thank you for 10 great years of love and loyalty. I hope you are happy and free of your pain. I also hope you forgive us for making the decision to let you go when we couldn't seem to manage your pain and discomfort any longer. It broke our hearts to have to make a decision like that, but we felt at the time it was the kindest gift we could give you. We love you and miss you greatly. Tomorrow we will take a moment to reflect on the times shared and remember the life of a great friend and companion.

Time may help mend a broken heart but the truth remains that the fissures will never fully heal.

Mom and dad

 

Happy Birthday Angel Boy!

Dear Bruno,

We hope you are having a joyous first birthday celebration in the heaven with your sisters and friends. It was around this time last year when you really started to have great difficulties but we were so happy you were able to have a wonderful birthday despite your pains. It was so much fun watching you enjoy your Arby's and your Dairy Queen last year. Even though you were over 100 pounds, I know in my heart you must have thought you were a lap dog. This is a hard time for us because we remember how quickly things went bad last year for your health and your first year anniversary at the bridge is less than a month away.

We love you and hope you are celebrating today.

Love,
Your family

We've been fans of the show and last year we had so much fun with Bruno when the show's new season premiered on his birthday. Bruno would get excited and howl with the family and especially when the contestants were really bad. We are grateful we got it on video last year because it won't be the same watching it without our big man this year. Bruno, I hope you are watching Idol from heaven and howling right along with the contestants. We miss you so much.

Love,
Mom

 

Sending love to all my Dogster pals

Wishing all my pals a blessed and happy New Year! Take care, stay warm, and be loved. I added some new pics of my younger years. I hope you will enjoy looking at them. Most are on page 3 of my photo book.

Here's some food for thought

Dogs In Heaven?

An old man and his dog were walking down this dirt road with fences on both sides, they came to a gate in the fence and looked in, it was nice grassy, woody areas, just what a 'huntin' dog and man would like, but, it had a sign saying 'no trespassing' so they walked on. They came to a beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there. "Welcome to Heaven" he said. The old man was happy and started in with his dog following him. The gatekeeper stopped him. "Dogs aren't allowed, I'm sorry but he can't come with you."

"What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs? If he can't come in, then I will stay out with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life, I can't desert him now."

"Suit yourself, but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his area, he'll promise you anything, but the dog can't go there either. If you won't leave the dog, you'll spend Eternity on this road."

So the old man and dog went on. They came to a rundown fence with a gap in it, no gate, just a hole. Another old man was inside. "S'cuse me Sir, my dog and I are getting mighty tired, mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?"

"Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there. Make yourselves comfortable"

"You're sure my dog can come in? The man down the road said dogs weren't allowed anywhere."

"Would you come in if you had to leave the dog?"

"No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven, he said the dog couldn't come in.
We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if my buddy here can't come too, and that's final."

The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."

"You mean this is Heaven? Dogs ARE allowed? How come that fellow down the road said they weren't?"

"That was the Devil and he gets all the people who are willing to give up a life long companion for a comfortable place to stay. They soon find out their mistake, but then it's too late. The dogs come here, the fickle people stay there. GOD wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, HE created them to be man's companions in life, why would he separate them in death?"

Our first Christmas without you

Dear Bruno,

We just want you to know that we still miss you dearly. Your eager anticipation of the holidays always lifted our spirits and will be greatly missed this season. Last year you were so excited to get your stuffies and your giant rawhide bone. You always had a very youthful spirit even though you were in pain and discomfort. Perhaps your favorite time was dinner when you would get a little Christmas dinner mixed in with your food. You always did love to eat! Enjoy your first Christmas at the Rainbow Bridge Bru. Know we are thinking of you and your sisters.

Love,
Your family

Poem

Such a fitting poem for my beloved Bruno.


LAST NIGHT

I stood by your bed last night; I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying you found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today; your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today; you tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you; I smiled and said, "it's me."
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me.

Rottweiler Webkinz

Mom bought a Rottweiler Webkinz and needs to name him. She doesn't think she can use Bruno because it might be too hard. So she was thinking Carl from the Good Dog Carl series or Willy from the Upchuck and the Rotten Willy series. Any input from my Dogster pals?

My final resting place

Today my ashes were laid to rest with my newly planted Hotwings Maple tree. Since I loved to eat, the family thought it was the perfect tree. It is also quite beautiful and will give wonderful fall colors!! It gets its name from the helicopter seeds that will blaze red during the summer. While it's a sad day for the family, its finally my day to be completely at rest. Originally it was to be on Mother's Day but the forecast calls for rain on both Saturday and Sunday so this was the best day. I know my pawrents love me dearly and I am always with them. Happy Mother's Day weekend, especially to my beautiful wife and mother-in-law.

Bruno

I AM NOT THERE

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
