RIP Beethoven

A couple weeks ago my family had to make the decision to put our little guy, Beethoven, to sleep. He was a 19 year old Shih Tzu who had suddenly lost his ability to walk. His back legs simply would not hold him up anymore. It was heartbreaking. I desperately wanted him to get well, but I knew he was suffering in pain. Being his owners, we knew we had to let go and set him free. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Beethoven had been a member of my family since I was 6 months old and I had always felt the closest to him. We used to do everything together. I couldnt picture life without him. Even though it has been a couple weeks I still find myself reaching for his bowl to feed him, or telling my other BIG dogs to watch out for Beethoven as they run towards the spot he always used to sleep in. When you are so used to things being this way, its soo hard to realize it is not the same and will never be the same. I miss him soo much! Every night I will still whisper my goodnight to him and tell him I love him. Life will continue to go on, but I will never forget the joy he had brought to my family and the ongoing joy we have for being blessed to know such a strong little soul. I LOVE YOU BEETHOVEN. You will forever be in our hearts!!

Sorry for your loss..

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 and 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 gone
by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing;
they miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind...
They run and play together but, the day comes when one suddenly
stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent, the
eager body quivers... Suddenly he begins to break away from the
group, flying over green grass, his legs carry 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 that 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 THE
RAINBOW BRIDGE TOGETHER
