I’m sure you know by now, but little Joker crossed the Rainbow Bridge early this morning. I am pasting a message from Mickey (Joker’s furdad) and would be very thankful if you could post it on the blog for any Dogster who has had the privilege of knowing Joker.
And yes, Pops, we understand that even six months with a dog can change your life. It’s ot the amount of time; its the emotional connections we share.
And yes, as I read your diary entry below for Joker, my eyes are leaking with yours.
Even Angels Need Little Buddies Too!!
This will be the only note i will be able to write for a minute or two.. I just got the call from the Vet.. The Angels must need a new lil buddy too.. Joker went to the bridge last night. Pop’s is crushed.. But knows that when the pain subsides there will emerge a new energy for life. Not sure just yet what, but never is there pain with out following growth.. The saddness is overwhelming, but the pure joy of having shared 6 months with Joker is so strong that the pain is at least dulled.
**Here’s the message I must Must get out.. Your Prayers were not in vain.. They were so valuable and will be in the future for any family and animal experiencing situations of any nature. I feel that even though the results didn’t end as i had, and you had hoped, that the need for this experience was valuable for each of us to go through togather. I must believe that The God of my understanding has much bigger plan for me (Pops).. and that in time i will understand.
For now Thank you for all the prayers, phone calls, candles, photo threads, Main Pictures, Rosettes, stars, Posts, Prayers, thoughts, and more that i am sure i will recognize some day soon. Keep loving one another and praying for each other and sharing the kindness that we have felt through this.. It so helps. When i got the first news of serriouse trouble I needed an understanding heart, and Dogsters were there. This is the first lil one I have shared my life with and had to go to the bridge and it hurts like things I have never experienced..
Don’t say to yourself that 6 months of sharing your heart with any living thing can’t completely change your world, because it can..
Thanks again to all of you. When I can I will try and say thanks more personally, but for now this will have to do.
My Love and respect to you all.. Throw in an extra prayer for Dallas & Sassy Girl they know somthing is’nt right.. and Rascal Please.. He and Joker came home with me about the same time and they have been togather every moment.. Rascal lays in the hall watching the door..
I will post later in all the groups.. after I take care of the Fur babies. This is all i can type for now, My heart hurts and my eyes wont quit leaking.. Big Guys Cry Too
Have a good day please-
Loves- Pop’s, & Rascal AND ANGEL JOKER
