Dear Momma

Dear Momma,

I wanted to tell you that I made it safely to the Rainbow Bridge.  You will never believe how beautiful it is here.  It really is paradise for us doggies.  Speaking of us doggies, you will never guess who met me at the door....Max!  I can see now why you loved him so much and told me about him.  He is one special boy.  You will be happy to know that we are having so much fun here. 

I've met lots of my friends here.  It is fun to meet them in person.  There have even been a few that have arrived after me.  I know it is sad for our humans but if you could see us you would never be sad.  All the doggies are in the prime of their lives. No one ever gets older and no one ever gets sick here. The sun is always shining and there are plenty of chairs to sunbathe in. And, most importantly, treats really do fall out of the sky!

Momma, I want to tell you that you and Daddy really did do the right thing.  You were right, I was not happy anymore.  I was trapped and confused, my body ached, I didn't always know where I was and I wasn't always able to understand when you called my name.  I know your heart is still broken; I can see you and the pain you are in.  I don't want you to be sad because I am so happy here.  I also know that you question whether or not it was the right time and I want you to know that it was.  You didn't make the decision too early but you didn't wait too long either.  Just like you have done since I was itty bitty, you took perfect care of me.  Thank you for holding me close and not letting me be scared.  Any concerns I had disappeared as I lay in your arms and you and Daddy told me what was going to happen and why.  Hearing you tell me you loved me as I fell asleep was a wonderful gift.  Thank you for loving me enough to let me go even though it was so painful for you. 

You don't have to wonder if I know how much you love me....I know, Momma, I know.  I hope you know how much I love you.  I miss you more than you will ever know and I can't wait to see you again.  I will be keeping an eye on you guys.  You never know when I might drop you a line or stop in for a quick visit.

All my love forever and ever,

 A special thank you to Amber and her mom for making this beautiful photo in remembrance of Twix.

It is so sad to let go. Reading this made me tear up thinking about the dogs I have said goodbye to in the past. I'm happy to hear that Twix has reached the rainbow bridge. I hope you and your family are taking care of yourselves during this tough time!

Love, Dovey (and Baby Bird).

Oh dear Twix, our silly human is crying.....................!
We want to thank you for getting in touch and letting us know you are well - we hope to run with you one day at the Bridge. What fun we will have.
Give our love to Harry, he was the basset before us and we didn't know him but your lovely letter has made our human think of him.
Well, just as you will, he has remained in the hearts of the humans who loved him and is never far from their thoughts.

Hello Twix,

We are happy to read about your post. Knowing that you are happy and running painfree somehow makes us smile. It's exactly how we want to remember you.

Your Mom and Dad (and Taffy, too) surely miss you so please keep them warm in your embrace and do shine brightly at night so that they know that you are just there.

We are staying by their side to support them and send them hugs and prayers.

Oh Twix. I hope your mommy and daddy can read that and take comfort. Their hearts are breaking every day and it must be so difficult to watch. Give a big smoochie to my beautiful Raja. She might look scary, but she is a sweetheart.


HoundDogMom said...

Twix, I am so happy you made it safely. My eyes are a little leaky from this post. I was wondering if you have seen my Cleo at the RB. She began her journey on 9-20 and I am so praying she made it safely. Thanks for checking in and letting your humans know things are good at the RB. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

We still know the bitter pain of giving up a dog we loved so much but it's not near as bad as the pain of seeing one suffer. Mom and Dad, you did the right thing and your love for Twix shows through it all.

Good bye, for now, dear sweet Twix. We haven't been on much either because Grammy has been sick and I'm having a lot of trouble, too. Reading your letter to your Mom and her letter to you, will help Grammy to let me join you I think. She is struggling so hard with this. We are so blessed to have known you, Sweet Furiend!
