Yesterday, we received some very sad news from one of Mommy's bestest friends in the whole world, about her precious Lab Maddie. Maddie crossed Rainbow Bridge yesterday. It was very unexpected and very sudden. Poor Maddie had cancer growing in her chest, and she didn't show any signs of not feeling good up until the last couple of days. Maddie's Mommy Caitlyn had to make the toughest decision of her life.......but did what was best for Maddie.
Please say a prayer for Maddie as she crosses the rainbow bridge, and send pawsitive vibes to her doggy brother Brady, her Mommy Caitlyn and her Daddy Jeremy.
We love you all and will miss you terribly Maddie!
Here is a poem we found online we'd like to share and dedicate to Maddie titled "The New Rainbow Bridge" :
By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.
For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.
They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.
For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.
The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.
