seems like just yesterday, but it was really so long ago.
I remember today.you were so sick, in so much pain. it had to be the end.
you know I loved you, and love you still. you where my heart, my soul.
you entered my life when I needed you most. and left when you had taught me how to make it on my own

gone..but never forgotten
keep all the pieces of my heart together till I get there

one day, a long,long,time ago,as I lay in my concrete room with the cage door,I over heard the guards saying "this ones time is up tomorrow". I sighed and lay my head down.I knew what that ment.I had been here before.I had seen dogs go into the little room in the back,and never come back out.why was I here again? was chewing up a shoe and getting in the garbage crimes punishable by death?then there was a young teenage girl looking in at me.she had street wise eyes and our souls touched.
I heard her speaking to the guards,they told her she was not old enough to "buy" me. and then she left. as I lay there trying to accept my fate a while later I heard her voice again.SHE HAD COME BACK! and she had brought a couple with her. they were old enough to bail me out.
we all piled into an old vw bug. on our way to my new home, she kept hugging me, and I slurped her face. it was the start of my new life.

Life was not easy for the girl and me. we had some really ruff times.but we had each other, so we would make it thru.when I forgot myself and chewed up her shoe, she just laughted,and said she would have broken her neck with heels like that. when I got in the garbage, she bought a hook for the door. when I figured out how to open the hook, she told me I was too smart for my own good.
twice when things got really bad, she had to put me in foster care while she got things sorted out.the second time when she came for me she had my new daddy. things never got as bad again.he was a wonderfull man. but took some training. he learned quick.

life was good for along time.

then came the lump. it grew,dr said it should be removed, so I had surgery.
they said the test came back benign,but it was wrong.
I never healed. I got worse.I was so sick, and in so much pain, mom decided it was time to stop.so she gave me a last tear filled kiss and hug, she took all my pain away.

now I am the Keeper. when mom and dad send peices of their heart to the rainbow bridge, I go get them. I keep us all together.
waiting for the day we all play together again.

this year I was honored to be asked to be a judge in the adopt 2011 contest.

wow! I dont think I have ever barked with a group of kind, careing, dedicated pups as my fellow judges. I can call them pups, cuz I bet I have been on the bridge longer then some of the humans have been on earth, BOL!

and the entries, my dog, it was so hard to pick my top ones. they are all heart touching stories. they all are winners in thier own way. either by finding thier forever homes, or great foster homes waiting for that special human to find them. and this old angel is sure that next years contest will have a story or two that they have.

so untill then

opt to adopt!
give a heart a second chance, you wont be sorry

 

3rd place winner!

ME????

OMD!!! I dont believe it, what an honor!!
I want to send big thank you`s to the judges and prize donors, the list of prizes is pawsome!!!

but I am no diffrent then all the other shelter dogs out there that were lucky enough to find a forever home.we are just the ones the Great Dog smiled on and sent the right person in to find us.the problem is He cant find enough for all the shelter dogs.theres just too many. and that is sad. everyday so many more join me here at the bridge. never having a chance to snuggle, play, or just lay on the couch.they have never known what its like to have an ear scratch, a full bowl of food, a pile of toys.

if this contest, if 1 person reading these stories, goes to a shelter or a rescue the next time they are looking for a furry friend, that will be the greatest prize. cuz when that dog comes to the bridge, it will come knowing what love is.

I sit here, on my cloud watching mom as she puts up the tree.
I see her stop and start crying. she still misses all of her angels.
she remembers the first christmas with me, she spent hours stringing popcorn to put on the very first tree we had in our first home together, only to come home from work the next day to find I had eaten it all.
she remembers the way the tinsel would jump off the tree onto roscoe as he would walk by.
the winter the snow was too deep for a tiny puppy named frodo, and he thought the tree would be easier.
how gabby would lay under it so she wouldnt be forgotten by santa.
so many christmas`s come and someone is missing. she wonders each year who will be missing next year, 4 or 2 footed.
this year it was the kitty jesse. mom unpacked her stocking, thats what started the tears this time.

and this year it is Bryce that licks her tears away.
I wish she could feel me. I was there too.
I am always there when she needs me, like she was there when I needed her.

well she needs me now to lick away the tears that have started again

remember to love all those around you this hoilday season.
someone may not be there next year.
