Remembering Chloe!

I don't normally post things that are not of a stamping nature on my blog ....... but today I am a little sad as my DD rang early this morning to inform us that her "baby" (my grand puppy) seen in this photo above lost her battle to survive.

My DD noticed that Chloe was unwell last weekend so took her to the vet, apparently she had also lost a lot of weight recently ..... we all had taken this to be because my DD had been trying to help her lose weight with a special diet the vet had suggested as she was a little overweight, but unfortunately this wasn't the reason for her weight lose. At first they thought it was diabetes but as the week continued the the diagnosis did too, yesterday as she wasn't improving she was taken to a specialist who also said it was diabetes.

My DD visited with Chloe last night and she wagged her tail and her eyes looked clearer ...... so the signs were looking good for a recovery. But ......... unfortunately that wasn't to be!

Chloe will be greatly missed by her Mum (DD), myself, DH & other DD and her brother Oscar. She was a beautiful dog and grand puppy and she gave us all lots of joy in her short lifetime.

We love ya Chloe!

I am so sorry for your loss. Here is a poem I love...

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
