Giving our pets back to God
by: Beverly

My sister and I are facing a terrible decision about one of our cats. She is very ill and it does not look like she will stay with us.
Your story helped me. The only thing comforting me now is the fact that I can think of losing her in a different way. God made everything--all the creatures of this world including us. He loves everything He made. Shadow has been with us for over 15 years. He said that He wants her back to be happy with Him forever. He is waiting at the Bridge. I just imagine handing her to Him, and He has a huge smile, and she is happy and free of her discomfort.
Maybe this post will help someone else.

Thank you

Thank you so much for your beautiful entry. I just had my beloved Pomeranian, Shadow, put to sleep last Tuesday. I also stayed with her to the very end. It was definitely the right thing for me to do.

Best regards and condolences on your loss,

Bryan Ledoux

That was a truly beautiful story. It has touched my heart.
I know that my little baby Star has a good friend in Brandy at the Rainbow bridge.

God bless you sweetheart, and I hope you find room in your heart soon for another faithful friend.

Hug for you

I am truly sorry for your loss. I have lost members of my family and it did not hit me as hard as losing my little girl (Mitze, my cat) . Just try to make it through each day knowing that Brandy is part of something bigger now and hopefully one day we will all understand. All my best to you and god bless Brandy.

May God Bless You During This Time

Dear Charles:

What a powerful story and thank you for sharing. Like Margaret said your right love never dies. I lost my 20 year old husky mix Buddy last June 11th. Buddy is also on this site his nickname was Boo Boo. I would do anything to take back the fact that I was not with him when he passed I was hysterical and knew that if I went in I would change my mind, and he was so sick. I will never forgive myself for not holding him during his final moments.

Like your Brandy his love was unconditional. I have his picture on my desk at work and pictures of him here at home. I still feel him and feel his love every day. Healing well I guess that comes to us all when the time is right. It has been 7 months and 20 days since I last hugged my beautiful blue eyed boy. I have 4 other dogs, but Buddy was the one who was with me through my kids growing up a divorce and remarriage. I still have his mate Klondyke who is 18 who has a form of doggy dementia, some days she knows me some days she doesn't. Within the next 3 - 5 months she will be making that trip to the rainbow bridge.

I can hardly wait to see my boy wagging his tail, jumping for joy and saying I love you so clear there is no mistaking that is exactly what he is saying. He did talk and that was the one thing he did say it amazed people, but what is really strange is the only person he would say it for was me and my daughter. So with all said, may you be blessed with beautiful memories of your lovely Brandy, and may god hold you and her in his loving embrace until you get to see her again, with her tail wagging and with kisses for her daddy.

Thank you!

Hi Margaret and thank you so much for your kind words. I read about Spike and I can relate to you as far as him not being able to walk at the end. I carried Brandy to the water and food dish for the last 48 hours, hoping that she would somehow recover as she had so many times before. I knew then that I had to face my biggest responsibility to her.

I mentioned in my story that I rescued Brandy, when in reality I've learned that "she" rescued me. I'm amazed at the things I feel I've learned from Brandy :) I'm a very lucky guy for having Brandy and finding this site as well.

I bet Brandy and Spike as well as all the others are running around like crazy now and having a ton of fun:)

Wow! What a lovely and very close relationship you and Brandy shared. And for 19 years!!!

I am VERY sorry for your loss. You're right love doesn't die. Our beloved Spike - yellow lab, almost 10, is here too at Pet Loss Matters.
