Memory Mickey

In Memory of My Little Dog Mickey
August 6th, 2006 04:45 PM Sunday

I’ve been putting this off because it was too painful. It still is, but I must.

I had Mickey cremated, and his ashes are inside the Mickey Mouse teapot you see here. I have them right next to my bed, along with my Mom’s picture of her in her coffin. I’ve blacked it out for obvious reasons.

The little plaque you see of Mickey's little paws were sent to me by the emergency clinic center. When I got these things in the mail, I burst out crying. Only those who have lost a beloved pet can understand the heartache.

The little bluish card you see in the upper right corner says:

Just this side of heaven lays the Rainbow Bridge.
When a beloved pet dies, it goes to the Rainbow Bridge.
It makes friends with other animals and frolics over rolling
hills and peaceful lush meadows of green. The are as
healthy and playful as we remember them in days gone by.

Together, the animals chase and play, but the day comes
when a pet will suddenly stop and look into the distance...
bright eyes intent, eager body quivering. Suddenly
recognizing you, your pet bounds quickly across the green
fields and into your embrace. You celebrate in joyous
reunion you will never again separate.

Happy tears and kisses are warm and plentiful,
your hands caress the face you missed. You look into
the loving eyes of your pet and know that you never
recall parted. You realize that though out of sight,
your love had been remembered.

You cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

I find this pic particularly heartbreaking, because this is EXACTLY the way he was staring at me, the day I left him at the emergency hospital. BEGGING me not to leave him! But how was I to know that I would never see him alive again!!

Mickey, Jewely and Davy.

Mickey and Jewely were inseprable. Jewely is not the same anymore. She's always so sad.

I will never get over losing you. Never!

Yes, See Dog, it is so sad to lose a much loved little dog. I'm sorry you lost Ginger.

Mickey was so tiny, even littler than Davy in the pic where he's still a kitten.

How I wish I'd never taken him to the Emergency Hospital, and just waited until Monday to take him to my regular vet. Or if he was going to die, I would have wanted him to die at home with me and the rest of the kids!

I'll never get over the loss of my tiny Angel!

Yes, it is very sad and hurts a lot to lose a pet, one you love so much.....

I know that your little dog and mine are as happy as can be at the Rainbow Bridge!

Love you!

Yes, they are....and they may be running and playing together....And they will welcome you and me one day too.

Love you....

I am so sorry you had to lose your little Mickey. As a former pet owner, I know what it is like. It really is like losing a family member. *hugs*

Hugs you back.
