R.I.P Eddie 12/10/98 - 06/01/12

Unfortunately soon after returning from our new year adventure Eddie became unwell and had to go to visit with the vets. After much looking and talking the decision was made that all things considered (he was bleeding from his mouth but we didn't know what the cause of this was, he had previously had a bad reaction to anaesthetic and due to his age his back legs and hips were very sore and weak) it would be fairer on Eddie to have him PTS and Eddie went to rainbow bridge at 0830 on Friday 6th January. Age 13 years 2months. Thank you to all our friends, followers and supporters for sending their love and condolences to us.

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....

Catty will continue to have some great adventures with the hoomans and will be writing on here about those adventures. We will also update the blog on our past adventures that we had with Eddie as well.
