My Angel Sophie

It has been a while

Unlike most days at Rainbow Bridge, this day dawned cold and gray, damp as a swamp and as dismal as could be imagined. All of the recent arrivals had no idea what to think, as they had never experienced a day like this before. But the animals who had been waiting for their beloved people knew exactly what was going on and started to gather at the pathway leading to The Bridge to watch


It wasn't long before an elderly animal came into view, head hung low and tail dragging. The other animals, the ones who had been there for a while, knew what his story was right away, for they had seen this happen far too often.


He approached slowly, obviously in great emotional pain, but with no sign of injury or illness. Unlike all of the other animals waiting at The Bridge, this animal had not been restored to youth and made healthy and vigorous again. As he walked toward The Bridge, he watched all of the other animals watching him. He knew he was out of place here and the sooner he could cross over, the happier he would be. But, alas, as he approached The Bridge, his way was barred by the appearance of an Angel who apologized, but told him that he would not be able to pass. Only those animals who were with their people could pass over Rainbow Bridge.


With no place else to turn to, the elderly animal turned towards the fields before The Bridge and saw a group of other animals like himself, also elderly and infirm. They weren't playing, but rather simply lying on the green grass, forlornly staring out at the pathway leading to The Bridge. And so, he took his place among them, watching the pathway and waiting.


One of the newest arrivals at The Bridge didn't understand what he had just witnessed and asked one of the animals that had been there for awhile to explain it to him.


"You see, that poor animal was a rescue. He was turned in to rescue just as you see him now, an older animal with his fur graying and his eyes clouding. He never made it out of rescue and passed on with only the love of his rescuer to comfort him as he left his earthly existence. Because he had no family to give his love to, he has no one to escort him across The Bridge."


The first animal thought about this for a minute and then asked, "So what will happen now?" As he was about to receive his answer, the clouds suddenly parted and the gloom lifted. Approaching The Bridge could be seen a single person and among the older animals, a whole group was suddenly bathed in a golden light and they were all young and healthy again, just as they were in the prime of life.


"Watch, and see.", said the second animal. A second group of animals from those waiting came to the pathway and bowed low as the person neared. At each bowed head, the person offered a pat on the head or a scratch behind the ears. The newly restored animals fell into line and followed him towards The Bridge. They all crossed The Bridge together.


"What happened?"


"That was a rescuer. The animals you saw bowing in respect were those who found new homes because of her work. They will cross when their new families arrive. Those you saw restored were those who never found homes. When a rescuer arrives, they are allowed to perform one, final act of rescue. They are allowed to escort those poor animals that they couldn't place on earth across The Rainbow Bridge."


"I think I like rescuers", said the first animal.


"So does GOD", was the reply.

TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY

Today I am 17 years young at the Rainbow Bridge. As I look down on my humom, I see she is sad. I get sad sometimes too. We miss each other soooo much. I am with her each day. I hope she knows and feels this.
I see Lakota has taken my place in the pack very well. I was always the leader. I kept everyone in line. I am glad my humom has Lakota to do this.
I am always hearing my humom say, "there will never be another Sophie".
You see, we were like soul mates. I watched over my humom each and every day. I was always by her side. She longs for this as do I.
I miss you humom, but am whole and well again. Know that I will forever love you and we will always be connect by the invisible string connecting our hearts. I love you!!!!!!!!!!

 

****HQ APPROVED**** PLEASE HELP ATTICUS

Hello to all my pals. I want to ask a big favor of all of you. Please go and visit my pal Atticus's page. Just click on his badge above. This is his diary entry for the day.
The name that has been given to me is Atticus. I am really the sweetest pup you will ever find. I have just had a rough start in my life. Please read my bio for my story.
So far I have found how wonderful life can be. I just love to play, but right now I have a really hard time just going out to potty. My back is hurt really bad. If I do not get treatment soon, I could become completely paralyzed.
I am so thankful for the kind humans that are trying their very best to help me. They have taken me to see the person they call the vet. I heard them say I need something called surgery. This will give me the chance at a normal pup life. I want to be normal like the other pups at my foster home. Right now, I have to stay inside all the time and just watch them out the window. This makes me cry!
I also heard my foster humans say this surgery is going to cost $6500.00.
I am not sure what this really means. I heard them say it is a lot of money and they must raise the money by Oct. 28. They said this is when I am scheduled to have this surgery thing done. I want it so bad. I want to be able to run and play like all my pals. Without it, this will never happen and I will start to get a lot of pain, then I will not be able to even go out for a potty break.
I am a pup with a lot of love to give and a very big heart! My foster humans tell me times are really bad for people right now. That it will be hard to get this thing they call money. If any of you out there has even a dollar to spare, will you please help them get this money?
Dogster has been so kind as to allow us to ask for your help. Without all you pups, I just do not know what I would or will do.
If you can find anything you can give to help me here is the way to do it.
You can send the money right to the place that will be doing my surgery:
NCSU-Vet Teaching School at NC State University
4700 Hillsborough Street
Ralieigh, NC 27606
Case #142791
Please be sure and give them this case # and tell them it is for me.
Or you can donate through the wonderful rescue that is trying hard to get me this money:
http://www.southerncrossgsd.com/pages/dogstories/att icus.shtml
This address will take you right to the page they have made just for me.
I will be ever so grateful for anything any of you pups can do. No amount is to small!
Love to all!!

Atticus means so much to our family. No help is to small. Thank you my pals!!
Love you all!!

 

WORDS FOR THE DAY

Thank you to www.petloverstips.com:

I will lend to you for awhile
a puppy, God said,
For you to love him while he lives
and to mourn for him when he is gone.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years,
or maybe for two or three
But will you, till I call him back
take care of him for me?

He’ll bring his charms to gladden you
and (should his stay be brief)
you’ll always have his memories
as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise that he will stay,
since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught below
I want this pup to learn.

I’ve looked the whole world over
in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowd life’s land
I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love
Nor think the labour vain
Nor hate me when I come to take my pup back again.

I fancied that I heard them say
“Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done,”
For all the joys this pup will bring,
the risk of grief you’ll run.
Will you shelter him with tenderness
Will you love him while you may
And for the happiness you’ll know forever grateful stay.

But should I call him back
much sooner than you’ve planned
Please brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand.
If, by your love, you’ve managed
my wishes to achieve,
In memory of him that you’ve loved,
cherish every moment with your faithful bundle,
and know he loved you too.

Febreze Collars

We have been sooooo busy this week. We ask to use our pals Sully disry enty cause he has such a way with words. We could not have said it any better!!

In our previous diary entry we discussed our reasons for not wishing to participate in the free Febreze collar offerings as we feel that these gifts were sent by loving friends with the best of intentions, but that the underlying message of the Febreze collar itself is a blatant form of advertising for a product the we do not want to endorse. Febreze is not a product that has any benefit to our beloved pets, and can even be harmful to them via airborne chemicals...certainly not a product deemed beneficial by science to our pets.

Procter & Gamble, the manufacturer of Febreze also does ANIMAL TESTING FOR IT'S PRODUCTS, which we are certain is a hideous practice that none of us would want to endorse.

As much as we appreciated being thought of and sent a gift by our precious pals, we just can't accept the product, but love and treasure the sentiments sent with the collars. Thank you to all pals who sent them to us!

So, we did express our thoughts as clearly as possible in our previous diary entry, believing that if one observes something they personally deem wrong, and takes no action, then "Silence is Complicity" with the problem.

CONVERSELY, we believe that when a situation is corrected, HIGH PRAISE is due to those who correct the problem...in this case, DOGSTER! We e-mailed Dogster and they complied!!
BRAVO, DOGSTER, for giving those of us who wish not to participate the support we requested, in this case, removing the Febreze collars from our page. So, a complaint is now a HUGE "KUDOS" and THANK YOU to DOGSTER, our much loved home!

Two Years Today

It has been two years today, that I left my place on earth. I watch over my humom and my fursis now. I get very sad for my humom at times. You see, she still is very upset at times. I try and comfort her. I believe she knows I am with her at times.
She knows we will see each other again one day. That just is not helping her right now. I was my humoms best friend ever. She was mine to. We were like two peas in a pod.
I see my humom play with my fursis, but I can still see the sadness for me in her eyes.
Until me meet again humom, know I love you and I always will!!
