A furfriend gone to the Rainbow Bridge......

So sad that our beautiful furfriend has gone to the rainbow bridge. This beautiful lady has fought bravely and now lost the fight. Please purr loudly for her mum and dad, they will be hurting so much.. Dakota you will be so missed.

The beautiful Dakota

Time to let me go my friend,
Because my life no-one can mend,
Its better to let me go this way,
Than watch me suffer night and day.

I'm happy to go, my time has come,
my quality of life is no longer fun,
I’ve been so ill, so it’s not a bad thing,
to let me go forever resting.

Stay with me till I drift away,
Fast asleep forever I pray,
To relieve me from suffering and pain,
What more can I ask from my best friend.

Don't be sad, I'll be free from pain,
never to be ill ever again,
I know you'll miss me being there,
but all the memories you have to share.

Thank you for being my best friend,
And all my needs that you did tend,
Try not to be sad, try not to cry,
Now's the time to say GOODBYE.
With love GJ and Carol xxxxx

I always feel so sad when I hear about a loved fur friend going to the bridge. But then I see how much that fur friend was loved and it reminds me that sadness and joy can reside side by side in our hearts. Purrs and hugs to Dakota's family.
