Over the Rainbow Bridge


Last night our beloved 12 1/2 Year old brown burmese baby "Monty" walked the rainbow bridge.


Her kidneys had failed and both hubby and I were with her when she went to sleep.


We are heart broken.  Sleep peacefully Mont.



They say memories are golden well maybe that is true



I never wanted memories, I only wanted you

A million times I needed you, A million times I cried

If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died

In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still

In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill

If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane,

I’d walk the path to heaven and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same

But as we are called one by one the chain will link again

Fiona, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your much loved pet. We had to do the same for our beautiful kelpie, Tilly. She was only 7 yrs old, had kidney failure and we found she was born with just one kidney. We did the only thing we could for her, the final act of love, as you have done for Monty. Sending you many hugs, Sandy. :(

When our old Gus left us last year I found this Dr Seuss quote...
"Don't cry because it's over...
smile because it happened.."
and it made me smile with memories of him. I hope you'll be able to smile because you had her soon too Fee...

I know how you are feeling all too well but know that all the years joy & loyalty we get from our furbabies are worth every minute of it.
