Stormy and Misty
It is with great sadness that I notify members
the passing of Misty last evening 8/30 while being held in her owners
Misty is the sister of Stormy who also went to the bridge 6/9. I was told
she had been grieving for the loss of her inseparable sister. Those two
were always together.

June 10th 2004, gone to be with
his life long friend and beloved Gracie.
George was such a joy to
have in our lives, and will be missed terribly. Every foster that comes
into my life is special, but George and Gracie were an amazing couple.
This little old couple seemed to instantly realize that they could now be
happy and start to enjoy life. Despite their age, the constant pain Gracie
must have been in, the neglect and abuse, this wonderful pair were so
happy. After Gracie passed, I clung to George - probably more for my sake
than his - but we became very attached...where I went he went. He loved to
ride in the car, loved to fall asleep in my lap or on my feet. When I
walked through the house, his front feet were always on the back of my
legs as he danced to keep close to me. He never would try going up or down
stairs, and we would play this little "pitter patter" game at the top of
the stairs before I would pick him up - and both of us (George and me)
would just laugh and laugh (you can get a little taste of heaven once
you've shared a good laugh with a little pomeranian)! Often my husband
would come into a room, and ask "did you forget to put George down again?"
as I always seemed to have him in my arms.
Again, thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. Our hearts are broken
once again. The pain is excruciating, but the love and shear joy that
George and Gracie shared with us was wonderful and something that we will
take with us forever.
Debbie in RI,
Gypsy a little Silky
She was Sue's very special baby, Gypsy was
well-loved and did not die alone in the mill.
She knew what it was to have a family of her very
own if only for 6 months.
Thank you Sue and your family for loving this
little girl so deeply.

Our dear little Gracie lost
her fight this morning, her heart could
not cope with the stress and she passed on.
George her lifelong mate will be as devastated as all of us, neither
of these dogs had a forever home yet, few people want the old ones.
Thank you for your prayers, but please consider giving a home and
comfort to an old but very grateful ex-mill dog,
you will be rewarded more than you can ever know.
To Gracie, you kept your
We have a secret, you and I,
No one but us can share,
We told it to each other,
The day you entered here.
I promised to take care of you,
To keep you safe and warm,
To never let you know again,
The pain, the fear, the harm.
I promised you that hunger,
Would no longer be with you.
That comfort and protection,
Were always here for you.
I promised that the clouds of fear,
That darkened your sweet eyes,
Would soon be changed to trust again,
You’d soon forget the cries.
I promised that one day you’d feel
The love you so had missed.
And that the love would come from me,
In every gentle kiss.
I promised that one day you’d know,
The bliss of being free.
That you would run and play and dance,
And happiness you’d see.
I promised that your soul would know,
What joy it was to live,
And in my ear you whispered back,
“I promise to forgive.”
A Million Times
You never said I'm leaving
You never said good-bye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knew why
A million times we've needed you,
A million times we've cried.
If love alone could've saved you,
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else will ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone.
Part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.
To Gracie from your foster mom, from George, and
from the rest of the pack…

Tiny baby daisy, your loss is so hard on
us who loved you.
Passed to the Rainbow bridge during neuter surgery.
To my sweet little foster boy Pongo, I watched
you be born to this world, You were the first born on Halloween morning
right at 3 am. You also was the vocal one of your siblings, You always put
a smile on my face. It has been over a week since you left us, And I still
find myself looking for you. I still don't understand why you were taken
from us, It seems so unfair your little life was just beginning.
Pongo you will always have a piece of my heart, I
miss you so very much. But I do believe on that day you took a hold of
another very special boy named Skooter that left us that day also. And you
both walked across to the bridge only to be greeted by so many of our
loved ones old & young, And you will always be running happy and free And
always staying that young playful puppy you were. Goodnight my sweet boy.
I love you

Dear Fellow Puppymill
I am sorry that I lost contact with you I had trouble with my ISP so I had
shut down my MSN terminal. My mother was ill and is still feeling poorly but
better than she was.
I am writing with sad news about Lucy. She passed away January 25. 2004
5pm I AM HEARTBROKEN.
She was diabetic and despite all the vet's efforts and my efforts to save
she died. I am in financial debt but I would have sold my soul to save her.
My mother, my two other dogs, and my cockatiel are devastated. They loved
Lucy!!! The vets and the vet techs are crushed! All my neighbors have sent
sympathy cards. Lucy touched the lives of many people. She will be sorely
I have been crying for one solid week now, but I know she is pain free and
playing at the bridge. Despite all the sorrow and pain that I feel right now
not regret having Lucy for one moment that I had her. She was my best
FRIEND!! I love
all my dogs BUT I HAD A VERY SPECIAL LOVE FOR LUCY!! I know she will be waiting for me at the bridge when
my trials are over. I guess
God is not ready to
take me yet. He must want me to do something for him but Lucy has
earned her crown and her wings.
The last month of her life Lucy only weighed 11 pounds. I carried her around
most of the time like a little baby. On January 25th Lucy could not hold on
any longer. The night before she threw up and she could no longer hold her
urine. I help her in my arms as she seized. We both fell asleep until 7am
to go to the bathroom and she went poop everywhere. I cleaned up and picker
up and tried to feed her. She would not eat. She did drink some cold water.
I held her for most of the day. I hugged her and kissed her. At 2pm she
up bile and she wanted to lie down. I placed her on my mothers bed and
covered her with her blanket. My other dogs wanted to spend a little time
so I put them on the bed too. They stayed together until 2:30 when I took
off the bed so they would not disturb her. Lucy loved my mothers bed. It is
double bed and my mother sleeps on the couch so the dogs and I slept in her
bed. I continued to kiss Lucy and tell her that I loved her and it was
her to go to the Rainbow Bridge. At 5pm Lucy took her last breath and died.
was peaceful and free of ill health at last!!!
Lucy was cremated and I have her ashes in a lovely urn. she is gone but
ALWAYS LOVED AND NEVER FORGOTTEN!!!I just wanted to let everyone know that she has passed away but lives on in
