Rainbow Bridge

You know, some people treat their dogs as if they were children. For us, we've always treated our dogs not quite as children, but still, as a wonderful and important part of our family. However, when you've had more than your share of heartache trying to grow your family, they do start to fill that void in your heart that you've reserved for your children. The trouble is that, unlike children, you know that they won't outlive you. You know that some day you will have to say goodbye, but it always seems to come before we expect it -- before we're ready. It's a part of life. I guess we're never ready.

Shasta, you've been a great friend and a treasured part of our family. We love you very much. Find Winnie at the Rainbow Bridge, take care of her, and tell her that we love and miss her very much. Goodbye.

I'm so sorry about your loss. We have two dogs also and they are like my other babies. Each one has such a unique personality, so I understand this is a significant loss. Thinking of you at this time.

Sorry to hear about Shasta. We loved her and Winnie too. Hope your empty nest is soon filled with a bouncing baby boy!
