Wishbone is a Whippet we have had since around November 2003, he was just around 6 weeks old when we brought him home. Unfortuntely he had a severe back injury on Friday February 25, 2011. Our hearts are broken as he had to be put to sleep on Wednesday March 2 at 12:30 pm. We will miss him dearly as he passes over the rainbow bridge. WE LOVE YOU WISHBONE ! I am so sorry I couldn't do more to help you :(
|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....

Cherished memories & tribute
Words cannot express the love we have for Wishbone. I prayed so much this past week hoping for the best. You brought so much joy over the years. I thank God Becky placed you in Kerri's arms. How can you tell a child they can't have a puppy so cute when someone placed it in her arms and told her to take him. I will never forget how you would join us in the bathtub if we left the door open. Or how fast you would zoom around the yard. I keep looking out the window where you would lay in the sun for hours. How you loved to be outside relaxing. Boy how you loved to run.Kerri will miss you by her side in her bed, even though she went away to college she still loved you dearly. I hope I made the right decision, your health declined so quickly. The pain you were in was too much for me to let you suffer thru. Kerri wanted to be there by your side but you just couldn't wait any longer. I keep asking myself If I did the right thing... should I have done something else? Tried a differnent vet, sold my cars and house to get the best vet care.... will I ever come to terms with my decision. Everywhere I look I see that face. Here that tail whipping around. I sit here wondering If you are by our side, If you are safe and happy. I am hoping you knew we were with you until you left us for eternal rest. I never stopped rubbing you and comforting.. Your furry bestfriend Cadance keeps looking for you. She goes by the door and turns and looks like she is waiting for you to come running by.How will we ever forget the pain we are feeling

I was not able to remove the minutes and seconds. But the day and year are correct.
