My Beautiful Red Boy "Hunter"

    My beautiful Red Boy Hunter, I lost him August 3, 2009 to bone cancer and
    pericardia effusion. First the effusion came and I had him drained his
    heart sac was full of blood and I told myself if it ever came back again
    I would not have him go thru that. They checked for tumors in the
    the heart and found none, he did well after that. He was a comic
    to say the least and so very gentle when he took a treat from you
    he would wrap his lips around so his teeth never touched you. He slept
    with me, he was VELCRO to the max He would sit on my lap while I
    watched TV until I couldn't breath any longer, he was just so so
    gentle and always by my side, he loved everybody and everything.
    I got him in January so it was cold and I carried him around in a baby
    blanket until I could not carry him any longer. He made me laugh
    everyday at his silly little things he would do, he always wanted to be
    covered up. He was like a child to me I miss him so much, it helps
    me to talk about him. Then the bone cancer set in and I was not
    going to let him go thru anymore and I did not want him to suffer,
    he took part of me with him. I loved him so.

    He will always be in my heart and I know he is in heaven that is the only
    place he could be.

    Dobermans are the most misunderstood breed and Hunter sure proved that.

    This is in Memory of my wonderful boy Hunter.

    Reading these always chokes me up because I sure understand how much our dogs are loved and missed! Most certainly Hunter was loved and loved you in return and my two RIP Dobes are probably playing with him now, whole and pain free!~ RIP, Hunter! Til we meet again.

    I'm so sorry to hear Hunter left you behind...but , boy, sounds like he was well loved (and you in return) while he was here! Thank goodness for that!!

    Just this past Monday I visited a town we may be moving to. As we approached our hotel we crossed a bridge. It was called "Rainbow Bridge".Asw we crossed it I said a prayer for all my lost pets...and all the lost pets in general. I told them to keep waiting, so many of us missed them terribly & would be happy to see them again....someday.
    It was so pretty there. Sunlight glistening on the water, mossy rocks, pretty oak trees. I pray our babies run free, healthy & happy, while they wait for our turn to join them.

    Sleep softly Hunter. He sounded like a wonderful dog, and you provided a wonderful life for him. It is so terribly painful to say goodbye to them, but they're waiting for us.

    "My Bounty Hunter"

    November 6,2000-August 3,2009

    To My Sweet Gentle Boy
    Tears and a Broken Heart
    We Will Meet Again When the Chain Links

    Memories are Golden,so I
    been told,
    Well, that may be true,
    I never wanted memories,
    I only wanted you
    to love and hold,
    Nobody knows how much I loved you,

    They say time heals all wounds,
    Well, that may be true,
    They say absence makes the heart
    grow fonder,
    Well, that I know is true,
    I still feel you here with me,
    that will always be true,
    "My Own Bounty Hunter"
    Nobody knows how much you loved me,

    A million times I needed you,
    A million times I cried,
    If love alone could have saved you,
    you never would have died.
    To put my own feelings,
    and to do what I knew
    was best for you,
    It was though I had died.

    I know that day you knew
    God was calling you,
    Oh Lord I didn't want
    to loose you.
    Before we left I could see
    the pain in your eyes,
    The way you looked at me,
    We were going to your final
    journey to Destiny,
    As the sedation took affect,
    I could not bear you looking at me,
    As the final lethal dose,
    was given,
    You wrapped in your favorite quilt,
    me holding you until
    Angels called you to Eternity.

    In life I loved you dearly,
    In death I love you still,
    In my heart you hold a piece
    You and Mateese
    Nothing can ever fill,
    Nor do I ever want it to fill.

    I know you want me
    to try to mourn for you no more,
    To be Happy and remember the
    The Happy times you and me,
    maybe someday
    They say life still has so much in store.

    Since you will never be forgotten
    I pledge to you today,
    A hallowed place within my heart
    is where you will always stay

    "If tears could build a stairway
    And heartache and memories make
    a lane,
    I'd walk the path to "Heaven"
    And bring you back again"

    But as God calls us one by one,
    and our last battle cannot be won,
    my promise to you,
    This chain will link again,
    " Until we meet again"

    I miss your head on my shoulder, you in my lap,
    your legs around me like you were hugging me,
    when you were just a little pup I carried you
    around until I couldn't pick you up any longer,
    your gentle loving Velcro ways, your sigh of
    complete content, your stub tail always going,
    your goofy ways like almost standing on your
    head with your butt up in the air. In the
    mornings you would stare at my eyes to see
    if I was awake yet, when my eyes opened you
    you would be so delighted, tail going and you
    would nibble my nose ever so gently. You made
    me laugh everyday. You always had to have
    your favorite glove and pillow.


    :hearts: I MISS YOU SO MUCH :hearts:
    You are in the hands of God never to be
    hurt again,
    I am so sorry for all the things you went through,
    the break in the scars left on you,
    all the medical things
    to try and save you.
    It has been a year but it still feels like

    I know you are in "Heaven" that's the
    only place you could be.

    A Letter From Your Pet In Heaven

    To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say.
    But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.

    I'm writing this from the Bridge. Here I dwell with God above.
    Here there's no more tears of sadness. Here is just eternal love.

    Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
    Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.

    That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
    God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you.
    It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.
    As for your dearest family, They'll be here later on."

    God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
    And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.

    And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight,
    God and I are closest to you... in the middle of the night.

    When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years,
    because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.

    But do not be afraid to cry: it does relieve the pain.
    Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

    I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
    If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.

    But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
    I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

    There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
    But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.

    It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too;
    That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

    If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain;
    Then you can say to God at night... "My day was not in vain."

    And now I am contented... that my life was worthwhile.
    Knowing as I passed along I made somebody smile.

    God says: "If you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low;
    Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.

    When you're walking down the street with me on your mind;
    I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind."

    "And when it's time for you to go... from that body to be free.
    Remember you're not going... you're coming here to me."

    2 years my sweet sweet boy August 3, 2009.:love:
    Today on this date I brought your ashes home
    a very sorrowful day..................

    Remembrance is a golden chain

    Death tries to break,
    but all in vain.
    To have, to love, and then to part
    Is the greatest sorrow of one's heart.
    The years may wipe out many things
    But some they wipe out never.
    Like memories of those happy times
    When we were together.:love:

    God saw you getting tired
    and a cure was not to be.
    So he put his arms around you
    and whispered “Come to Me”.
    A golden heart stopped beating,
    now to rest.:sorrow:
    God broke our hearts to prove to us
    He only takes the best.:love:
