CROSSING THE BRIDGE

You came into my life and I welcomed you with love, never knowing from that day on that you would own my heart.

As the years flew by so swiftly, we made memories to last.  Countless hours by my side, you helped me through the worst.  Always there to be my friend, never judging, never doubting, just loving no matter what.

You forgave me when I was wrong and helped me up when I was down.  Always there to offer comfort, or just a needed lift.  Your warm love and devotion never faded in the least.

All the times you made me laugh to see the expression on your face at some new and wondrous exploit or an old familiar place.

Never once in all this time did I think your time would come, always hoping, always praying you would be with me to the end.

Now your running days are over and your eyes are growing dim, you look at me and wonder how long until this ends.
For all the years that you have loved me, for all the tears that you have dried, but mostly for the trust I see within your eyes, for all these things I owe you, so much I can't repay.

The best that I can do, is let you go today.
I hold you close and kiss your brow, saying my good-byes.
Nearly dying deep inside from the love that's in your eyes.
One last loving word, a final tender touch, as you cross the bridge from this world, finally free at last.

In my heart you'll live on, my love for you wont fade.
It helps just to know that once again we'll be together in a better time and place.

You graced us with your presence and filled our home with love. You remain always and forever in our hearts.
Until we meet again ...

My beloved heart dog, my little man, there will be such an empty place at my side, saying goodbye to you has been the hardest thing I have ever done. You will be missed more than you know. Thank you for being my best friend.

Lola dog, we will miss you more than you know. You were a challenge, but with that challenge came a great love. We were so blessed that chance brought you to our door. Run free and happy, finally you have peace.

My sweet big boy. I miss your soft presence, your silly ears, the way you chomped your teeth at me to get my attention. I even miss coming home to find my side of the bed raked up so you could snuggle close to my pillow. Roundy, I miss you. Your time with us was far too short. You helped us heal after losing Guy. Your gentle presence helped fill the void. You are truly an Angel now, but you always were to me.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I never thought I wanted a tiny dog, but your sassy nature and big personality changed my mind. You were only supposed to be with us for a short time, but somehow you beat the odds and lived much longer than you were supposed to. Still, one year and eight months was not nearly enough time. You took a big piece of each of our hearts when you went to the bridge. We all miss you so much Peep.
