Woeful Wednesday

It's sad news that I have to report but I've told Mom that it's time.  I've told Dad that it's time.  I tried to tell Puppy but all he wanted to do was hop like a bunny.

I wanted to stay longer.  I'm sorry that I won't get to see my Uncle Brett on this side of The Bridge again.  He was one of my favourite people ever.  I wanted to make sure Puppy grows up with a healthy respect and love for animals, especially dogs and especially Shar Peis.  I've asked Stuffie to keep you updated on how our family is doing after I've crossed The Bridge.  And if a few of you could remind them every now and then in blog comments or Facebook messages that I'll love them forever, I'd appreciate it.

Could you guys also tell the next dog that joins my family - because I'm sure there will be another dog at some point - tell that dog that he (or she) is lucky to get this family as their forever home.  There's a lot of love here to share, but that spot at the end of the bed, the one on Daddy's side, that spot is mine.

Sniff ya later


From Bolo's Mom.
My heart is breaking and I feel that the world should stop to mourn one of the most gentle of souls as he crosses The Bridge.  His Dad and I were right there with him as he Crossed, just as Bolo has been there for every moment of the last 6 years and 4 months he's been with us.

I always hoped Bolo and I would walk Puppy to his first day of school and walk him back home again until Bolo was too old to walk that far.  I wish I had spent more time with Bolo these last two years since I feel he got short changed once Puppy came along.  Most of all, I wish I had more time to let him know how much I love him.  I really hope he knows.

Bolo knows how much you love him, and how much you will miss him. We know that he will watch over all of you, and most particularly Puppy.

You did the best thing in the world for your best friend. Celebrate him and his love.

Mango said...

I know exactly what you mean. How can the world keep going? How can everything be so much the same and yet forever different?

I am so sorry that Bolo wasn't able to stay with you longer.

Since this is The Summer Solstice, we always light a khandle at 8pm in our timezone as part of The Siberian Rainbow Bridge Memorial - all around the world, Siberian owners that have lost special furiends, light them at 8pm in their timezone so it is seen from North of The Rainbow Bridge

When we light ours, we'll see Bolo in the glow -

Just's not's just...fur now -

"God turns clouds inside out to make fluffy beds for the dogs in Dog Heaven, and when they are tired from running and barking and eating ham-sandwich biscuits, the dogs find a cloud bed for sleeping. God watches over each one of them. And there are no bad dreams."

I am so sorry for your loss.

River said...

Oh, wow, we are so upset to hear that have left us--. I most especially wanted you to know how much I loved you while you were still here. Life is so unfair--it always seems like the good ones die young. My brothers Bitey and Beau (both gone too young) will be happy to show you around at the Bridge. My mom is crying like you were one of her own. We send hugs to your mom and dad and puppy.

love from River & family

Many tears for you all. I don't blog so much these days but way back when I started Bolo was one of our fave guys and the only pei blogger we followed at the time. He will be missed by lots of us I know. I wish every dog got to live in a loving home and I know even when you felt busy with puppy he knew he was a loved and important part of the family. Big hugs to you all! Run free Bolo Buddy!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Oh, no! We cannot believe this terrible news. We have been derelict in following your blog regularly and did not even know Bolo was ill. We are so very sorry. And we know that Bolo knew you loved him with all of your hearts, just as he loved you with all of his heart. And he loved having Puppy and did not mind sharing you.

We only just saw this and we are all totally heartbroken. Bolo has been our friend for so long and we have always considered him to be part of our extended gang. We loved sharing in his adventures over the last few years and we will miss him more than we can say. He was surely one of the best 'Peis ever and an outstanding woofie. We'll miss you, Bolo, and we share in your family's pain.
