I do love them all!
My husband says that when he is gone and I'm alone, except for the 50 or so dogs, and old, the neighborhood kids are going to call me the dog lady

Sorry to hear that. Putting down an animal can be very difficult. Especially with a deep unspoken relationship as you describe. I hope you cherish the memories with her and enjoy the forthcoming time with Rebel.

texasgirl, my heart is breaking for you. Virtual hug for you and I am sharing your tears tonight. She sounds like a wonderful friend, I'm glad she isn't in pain anymore.

Raimbow Bridge

So sorry for you.... I hope this helps a bit...

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 The 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 and 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 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. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away 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...

I'm very sorry to hear about that tg. Our dog, Seijo, is only 4 but it will be a sad sad day when she leaves us. She is such a part of our family and I'm sure you felt the same way about yours. She looks like a great and smart dog, I'm sure she gave you years of joy and will be missed dearly.
