Feeling low, now kicked off flare

Morning all, had to make a tough decision yesterday to have our dog put too sleep!

Hes always been fit and healthy, so it came as such a shock. He'd been bit off his food for s week, a little bit sick, then yesterday he had a massive fit, took him to vets as he continued to have mini one's. Vet said he was too poorly. Such a shock as it csm from nowhere.

So now the trauma has kicked off major flare, just as I was on the mend from my own seizure 12 wks ago. As if daily life isnt hard enough for us at the best of times!

Tnx guys just needed to share x

Rainbow Bridge

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....

So sorry to hear about your dog, our pets give us such unconditional love. When I lost my cat Daisy I found the " rainbow bridge" and found it such a comfort. My hubby knew how sad I was and did me a framed photo of her with the Rainbow bridge below it. I now have it on my bedroom wall, and always say goodnight to her. Sending you healing thoughts x


That's so sad, we get so attached to our pets without realizing it, after our last dog Jess dies in similar circumstances to yours very suddenly, we said never ever again as I broke my heart, we've not had a dog for 10 years because of this, then a few months ago my niece rang to ask me a favour, unfortunately she was splitting up with her partner of three years and there was a problem about who would have the dog and please could I have him until they had sorted it, I said yes thinking this would be for a couple of weeks, well guess what he's still here and I think he's here to stay and we have both fallen in love with him. I hope one day you will find another dog to love, but you never forget a much loved pet, they stay in your heart forever, RIP.


Oh I ama so sorry what a shock I know how ghastly that must have been.! Do take care of yourself gentle hugs((((((((((((())))))))))))))) xginnx


Oh I really feel for you - must have been such a shock. Our dogs are part of our family and dreading losing them one day. Our eldest labrador - Jess, who's almost 10, was so poorly a couple of months ago and we honestly thought it might have been her time, but thankfullyshe recovered. Can't imagine what you must feel like. He'll be playing and having fun forever now in Rainbow Bridge. But never forgotten and always loved. Sending you the biggest hugs. Love Nikki xxx
