The seeds of love grow quickly
when planted in the fertile heart.

So short a time together, too short, and

too full of struggle and heartache,

my little one.

Add your light to the Heavens
and be at peace.

Friday, 12/4 7:30 pm

After beating the odds and surviving surgery for a dangerous perforated bowel, she seemed to be making a slow recovery. But it was not meant to be.

Tori is following in her brother Sherman's paw prints to the Rainbow Bridge. She accepted her path with grace, it just took us a while to catch on. She let us know it was ok to release her, she was going to be alright, and she wasn't afraid. I marvel at her simple acceptance of that which I find so unacceptable.

Godspeed, beautiful Tori.
Wear your silver harness with pride
as you dance in the stars above.
You will always be in our hearts.

It is hard to type when I am crying so hard that I can't see the screen. Her time with you was way too short. But you will meet your beautiful baby again in Heaven, I am sure of it. Until that time she is running happy and healthy and feeling the rich beauty of Heaven.

Godspeed Tori.

Much love,

The OP Pack said...

Why, why, why??? That is so hard to know. We were stunned to hear of the loss of Tori - too much for one family to bear. We know you did all you could for this sweet girl. We are sure she was greeted at the Bridge by Star and Sherman, the two Dakotas, and all the others who are gathered over the Rainbow Bridge to greet her and show her the joy of her new life.

Our very deepest sympathies to you and Jack.

Hugs, Phantom, Thunder and Kathie

The Last Battle
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this – the last battle – can’t be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don’t let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn’t want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they’ll tend,
Only, stay with me ‘til the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its’ last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don’t grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We’ve been so close – we two – these years,
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.

Jake of Florida said...

What a beautiful girl. We learned of your loss from Khyra, and even though we've never met, we wanted to send you our condolences. It's too too sad when one of our precious companions has to leave for the Bridge. The time with us is always way too short -- and from what we heard, your time with Tori and her brother Sherman was especially brief.

Please accept our healing thoughts.

Jake and Just Harry and our Mom, Joan

I am so sorry for your loss of Tori. My mom and I haven't been blogging much in the last couple of months, then our boy Ziggy died, so we missed this sad news. This morning we were trying to catch up with our friends and when we read about Moo we went further back and found this news. Our hearts are with you.
