Arrival Story:
Amber showed up at my door, she was skin and bones you could tell she was abused. Mom took her to the vet and she was so thin the vet wanted to wait to spay her until she gained weight. She should have weighed 90lbs but was only 47.

We don't know where she came from, we don't know if she had been running. All we knew according to the vet that she was about 9 months old, she was in heat. She has been at her forever home for about 8 years. Amber passed away on 2/11/2009, her spleen had ruptured and she had a tumor and was full of cancer, she had several mass cell tumors removed over the years, yet she never showed any signs of being sick. I had them removed some were a stage 1, some a 3. She got sick on the morning of 2/11/2009, so Mom took her into the vet, he was surprised too. The vet told Mom that she would only live for about another 6 months if she was lucky, but it would had been very difficult for her. Mom had to make the decision and sent Amber to the Bridge. Amber loved everyone, after she got over her fear of people, she didn't trust them. It took about 2 years before she felt comfortable with strangers. Hug your babies, you never know how long you will have them with you, Mom's still trying to comprehend it.

I've been at the Bridge for a year now, I know that Mom is thinking of me I can feel it. I see her at the computer writing this for me, for she and I were always able to read each others thoughts...even at the Bridge. I know she cries every time she sees a picture of me or some silly thing reminds her of me.

Mom youknow, it took the longest time for you not to fill my food bowl when you fed all my brothers and sisters, heck I've even seen you yelling at the back door and calling my name along with the others to come in. I know you miss me and I miss you.

The Bridge isn't too bad, I've made a ton of friends here and I found Mom Mom and she has this kitchen table and I lay under it by her feet. Mom Mom's sure glad to have the company. She was a tab afraid when she first crossed over, but she knows she's safe because I'm with her. Mom Mom misses Bert too, I see that Bert is getting slower and it's getting harder for him to walk, and his time for the Bridge is drawing close, but he'll be with Mom Mom and that will make both of them happy. Sally is one crazy pup, it's ashame she got such a raw deal on earth, but not here, Sally is a perfect little lady.

Oh, and Fluffy joined all of us a few months ago, Mom you should see her, she's plump and sassy and in full health, not like you remembered when you helped her to the Bridge. Oh, she just purred hello to you.

I know I'll see you and the rest of the humans in time, but their just not ready to join me now, from what I understand you have been so busy with helping other babies who didn't have it as good as my pack does, so I know you try to help in the best way you can. Are you still giving cities and the government hell on our behalf?

Hey, Mom tell Dad I hope he's doing better, he looks great and I know he's driving you nuts, but he's a good Dad. He sure does like taking care of all those weenie dogs doesn't he? That's a good thing, they are helping him heal. You know that is why God said he created us (yeah I met him and we chatted.) He said that we were created to serve our masters in time of well being but most of all in time of illness, and that's just what those pain in the butt weenies are doing for him. You know how they made me a nervous wreck running around the house.

Remember I love you and tell the other 2 leggers I miss and love them too, please let them know that Mom Mom and Sally and Fluffy and I are doing fine and can't wait for the reunion.

Big Hugs


It's been awhile.

My sweet girl, how I miss you and your silly ways. I always keep thinking of you and the sweet girl you were on earth, I know you're being good at the Bridge. Did you get to greet Sally? If you did take her under your wing, she was abused here on earth too, abused to where it left her with demons that she could not control. I know at the Bridge all that is now gone for Sally.

Buddy and Bert and Nadiya miss you, so do the doxies. We rescued another doxie her name is Lu-Lu, she's a double dapple and she is settling in just fine. Mom Mom passed right after you had left, I sure you knew that. When I told her of your passing she wept, the next month she left to go to heaven or maybe she's there with you, if she is take good care of her like you did when she lived with all of us.

Amber, you were the best dog a person could ask for, my heart still aches and my eyes well up when something reminds me of you. Your forever in my are my heart dog forever.



I have gone to the Bridge

I showed up at my forever home in September of 2000, I don't remember what day. Mom didn't think I would stay I was scared to death and she had to coax me to come in and have a drink and a bowl of food, I had not eaten for quite awhile. I live with my family for about 9 years, 9 wonderful years of love, care a full belly and brothers and a sister and 6 kitties.

I loved my home so much that Mom couldn't take me far from it if we went for a walk, if I couldn't turn around and see it I would head back in the direction I came from.

I came to the Bridge 2/11/09, I wasn't really expecting it and I know Mom wasn't either. I was in pain when we went to see Mike my vet man, he and Sadie (bi-ped sis's friend) helped me to the Bridge. You see the bi-ped sis was a vet tech at the clinic and knew everyone and everyone knows each of us pups and kitties. I went to sleep in Sadie's arms and I remember hearing her and Mom crying and telling me everything would be alright. I was going to somewhere special and I would enjoy it so much and I wouldn't be in pain anymore.

Sadie and Mom didn't lie to me, they were right. I have moved on to a better place and made wonderful friends, now I will wait until the rest of the pack joins me and we can all be together again.
