The Trip to the Bridge

Last Wednesday morning I knew something was up. I just didn't feel the same. I didn't feel my back legs. Nana was beside herself. Aunt Margie called the Vet because Mum was in school giving those stupid math tests. I barked a bit - but didn't move. Nana brought me water. And then Nana offered me a piece of toast. I didn't take it. And to Nana? That was NOT GOOD.
She brought me Johnny's blanket from his room, and having that near me made me feel better.
I did manage to partake in a Begging Strip - Come on - I DON'T care how bad you feel - it's a BEGGING STRIP for Cripes sake! BOL!
That afternoon I was at the vet's. Dr. P was very upset, Aunt Margie was crying, and I was staying to get some IV's of steriods and antibiotics. I kissed everyone.
I felt a bit better then. On Wednesday night when I went to sleep? I saw a beautiful Being - telling me "Don't worry - soon you'll be Home with Me. I won't ask you to come sooner than you are ready to, I know there's one person you are waiting to see....."
On Thursday morning I woke up feeling a bit better. I even sat up and ate! And I waited for the one person I needed to see, to say "Good-bye for now, I love you" In the late morning the door opened and there was my Johnny - my boy who came and picked me up when he was twelve years old - now he is twenty-four! - He came to me and we talked, he told me how much he loved me - and I told him the same. When he left, I knew I could relax. Thursday night, I drifted off to sleep - and there was that Beautiful Being again in my dreams, this time saying - "Okay Trustina - you can come on up anytime you feel like it, we have someone special waiting for you" So on Friday morning, before I woke up, I followed the light and left.......followed it all the way up - to a place of such breathtaking beauty.....I couldn't believe it. And there waiting for me? Exactly who I knew would be there! My Rems!
So please Nana, Mum, Aunt Margie, and Johnny and Kylie, OL, Duds, and baby Anne - while I know you are sad that I am not with you? I am here, with Rems, and Bailey and Jamie Marie and Stolyi and so many others - watching over you - and showering you with love.

Welcome to the Bridge sweet Trusty. I am very happy to have made your aquaintance here at the Bridge. You were always one of my heroes with your legendary counter surfing abilities. Maybe you could give me some pointers and let me in on your secrets. Who knows maybe we Angels can get together and build the longest but shortest counter ever and fill it with every tasty treat we can dream of and you can show us how a pro does it. Huge comforting Hugs to your family.

Welcome to the Bridge Trusty. We know you were sad to leave your family, especially your boy Johnny. We know how you feel. But we'll have a big time here at the Bridge and you can watch over your wonderful family. So, belly on up to the bar. I'll give you a beer and you can show us your counter-surfing tricks we've heard so much about. Rems has always bragged on you!!!! He's very proud of his brother.
