Brandi is no doubt my favorite girl. the other 2 don't know so, so shhhh!.

I love her so darn much it hurts sometimes. It's a good hurt. June 12th 2006 Brandi lost her battle with this terrible Lymphoma Cancer. I ache for her and think of her all the time.

To my sweet sweet girl Brandi
You just don't know how much I miss you here with me. There is not one day since you left, I don't think of you or something silly you had done.
So your nine years old now and I am sure you are having a great time up there in heaven with all the others that have gone to Rainbow bridge.
Happy Birthday my sweet girl and forever in my heart you will stay with me.
My poem I wrote for you.

MY SWEET BRANDI GIRL

A bundle of fur was given to me
and this bundle had touched my heart.
I couldn't believe that she was all mine,
I'll name her Brandi, that was a start.

As the months went by so fast
and seeing Brandi grow each day.
She was so happy, funny and beautiful
I wouldn't of wanted it any other way.

The months went by, then became years for us
and soon Brandi was 7 years old.
Then that terrible day came for us,
"It's Lymphoma Cancer", we both were told.

My life & Rons life changed that day
it was on August 18, 2005.
I told Ron and we both agreed,
we'll do anything to keep Brandi alive.

So we started Brandi on Chemo treatments
8 months of her in full remission.
Brandi has been such a trooper through this,
Now the cancer's back without permission.

Four times she came out of remission
Four times my heart grew sad.
Then my emotions started to flow inside,
first saddness, anger, now mad.

Mad at the fact we did our best
to give Brandi the best of care.
Now she is gone and has left us,
I'm feeling nothing but sad sad despair.

Brandi was such a beautiful girl
with a gentle soul and a huge heart.
And now she has gone to Rainbow Bridge,
and my heart now is torn apart.

I am so blessed that Brandi was mine
how she always had made us smile.
I know my heart cries for Brandi now,
and my broken heart will hurt for a while.

So My Brandi Girl, you already know
that I'm missing you oh so much.
And the worst time for me is the nighttime,
when I can't hug you and feel your touch.

Touching my arm by hitting your paw
for me to rub your body or your pretty face.
You came into the world with dignity,
and you left this world with such grace.

Until we see each other again
Thank you for giving me 7 years of Joy.
And when I'm sad and think of you girl,
I'll just hug your favorite frisbee toy.

Farewell My Sweet Brandi Girl
Be a star and shine down on me.
Forever in our hearts, forever in our souls
Thats where My Brandi will always be.

I love you so much Brandi
Goodbye my Best Friend
Your Mommy
----------------------------------------------------- ---------------
This poem below was when Brandi came to me and told me about Rootbeer & Mandi

Soft whisper

My best friend spoke to me last night
a soft whisper in my ear.
I woke up and looked around the room,
I was startled, yet I had no fear.

My best friend said that all is fine
Rainbow bridge is so much more.
That there was so much love up there,
even a beautiful ocean shore.

There is fields and fields of green green grass
and the sky has different shades of blue.
There are flowers, mountains, trees and clouds,
everything they said it was, is true.

My best friend whispered in my ear last night
saying "Please don't cry or be sad.
That what was done, had to be done,
for me to live my life now, so be glad".

My best friend said that I did the right thing
an unselfish act on my part.
And that this pain & sadness I feel
will be gone soon from my heart.

I asked my best friend "How could this be
I miss you so much everyday.
That my heart hurts so much for you,
I wish there could of been another way".

My best friend whispered in my ear last night
"You will always be in my heart.
Go on & live and love another,
because we will never really be apart".

My best friend whispered in my ear last night
"it's time for me to go towards the light.
I just wanted to stop & say to you
go on my best friend, I'll be alright.

I carry your unconditional love with me
I have done this from the very start".
I whispered back to my best friend last night,
"I'll always love you with all my heart."

So good-bye my best friend as I looked up at the sky
a shooting star I see in a straight line.
Moving fast across the sky & out of sight,
I whispered,
"Good -bye my best friend, now, I'll be fine".

Mommy needs your help to help others

Hi everyone,

I am so happy to see my mommy doing what she is starting to do to help her heal her heart. Mommy says it's all because of me and I am her inspiration to this book she is putting together now.
I know what my mommy had to do that sad day when we had to say goodbye, was such an unselfish act on my mommy's part, and she put her pain & sadness in her heart aside at that moment and wanted the best for me, even if it wasn't the best for her. Mommy let me go to heaven and be with God.

Sooooooo, my mommy is gathering together stories from pet owners who have loved and then lost a special pet. The stories she has been collecting from so many pet owners, are stories that end with a happy note, meaning the pet owners tells you what it took for them to let go and move on in their life without their best friend by their side.

It has been hard for my mommy to read these touching stories so many people have sent to her, because she reads about their loss and that stirs sadness for my mommy and reminds her to clearly of our last day when we said good bye to one another.

Mommy is doing a good thing from her heart and like she had said so many times since I've been gone. Mommy wished when she was hurting and feeling feelings she could not share or explain to anyone that there was a book like she is going to publish when I left this earth and left her side.
So please share your story of the loss you endured and what it took for you personally to finally get up, pull your self together and move on from your loss, whether it had been getting another pet, something someone said to you, or even having the wonderful experience my mommy had by me returning to earth to see her one last time and lead her to Mandi & Rootbeer at the pound.

God has allowed us angel doggies to fly down in times of great sorrow our dog parents are going through. we don't get to do it that often.
Please email my mommy at
lovemy4goldens@att.net
or leave it here in her mailbox for mommy to read when she comes on to dogster.
Well, gotta fly, (no pun intended there) God is calling for us and we don't keep him waiting.
Bye all and mommy, I love you so much and miss you more, but what you are doing makes me even more prouder to call you my mommy.
I am so proud of you and I am helping you a little each day to go on and I am trying to take that pain away. I know there is a lot left in your heart, but mommy, your doing just fine.
Love from heaven
Angel Brandi
P.S
Happy belated birthday mommy? I heard your prayer to God and did you feel me that day? I came 4 times at different times. You know what I mean, I know you do.
Byeeeeeeeeeeeeee

 

I see my mommy is getting better with time

Oh, it makes me very happy up here at rainbow bridge to see my mommy smiling again and giving that love she poured onto me, to Rootbeer and Mandi, the 2 she adopted from the shelter where I told her to go.

Mommy is a smart gal and can feel me around her and because she trusted me and loved me, she found Rootbeer and Mandi and now is giving them the loving life and wonderful family I had with them. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't sail down to earth and touch my mommys heart to let her know I love her still. I will never forget the love and joy my family gave me when I was there with them. My sisters too I miss. My Aunt Ginger is still the alpha at home like she was when I was there. Then there's Ally. Not the sharpest crayon in the box, but you can't help but love that jealous golden.

I never knew why she was so jealous of me with mommy. mommy showed all 3 of us the same love. Maybe it is because I rode in the front seat next to mommy every time we went for a ride. I see now Ally has taken that spot and thats okay with me. I am so proud to say my mommy is the best dogmom a dog could ever have. She was so so sad when I left her. They did everything and beyond to help me feel better, but I was tired and wanted to go to rainbow bridge. I am happy here.

There are so many goldens up here that their mommy knows my mommy. There are a lot goldens who have loving mommies like mine. We are all happy here with God and I just wanted to express that to all the other mommies who are sad now because their best friend has left them. Look at my mommy and know that it's okay to love another. It's okay to hurt that we're gone. But don't give up and be sad all the time. Your life is now and you have more love to give another. So go give that love to another like my mommy did and make a doggie who is at the pound as happy as you have made youur angel baby.


Momy, I am so proud of you. You have come a long way since I left and I will love you forever as I know you will and still do love me.
Mommy, remember when I whispered in your ear and you wrote that beautiful poem for me. I am going to put it here again for all to read. It should be in all the mommies hearts and I want to share to share it too.
I love my family so much and miss them more.
Forever your angel, Brandi Girl.
