It is with utmost sadness and excruciating pain that I allowed my beloved Chance to pass over to Rainbow Bridge yesterday. My heart and soul are beyond shattered. No dog will ever be able to replace his loving soul, sweet smile, and tender heart. I was blessed to have him pass at home with me in the comfort and safety he had come to know and love. He had my grand mother's rosary around his neck and he was able to pass on his special bed that he would get his bi-weekly massage treatments on. It was increasingly difficult for him to stand near the end and would fall over after only a few steps. He was having seizures as well and his quality of life had diminished to such an extent that I had to make the ultimate decision to allow him to pass to Rainbow Bridge. I will miss everything about him. I so wish he could have made it until Christmas as he enjoyed sporting his Christmas collar and leg bells. He was just so special. I want to thank Cathy and Pam from PSSR Sheltie rescue for allowing me to adopt Chance from out of state. To say this was a match made in heaven sums up our love and devotion we had for one another. I will never be the same without him. A part of my soul has died. We thought of you today, But that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, And days before that too. We think of you in silence, We often speak your name. Now all we have is memories, And your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake, With which we'll never part. God has you in his keeping, We have you in our heart.
