Grizelda and Marksman at the Rainbow Bridge
« on: October 25, 2008, 05:57:01 am »
I haven't been on BPO for a while.
Grizelda went to the bridge on Aug 9th. She was 16 years old and had gotten to the point where she would not eat any more and was in pain from her arthritis. I miss her spunk.
Marksman went to the Bridge on Sept 9th. Exactly one month later than Grizelda.  He was 12 years old. Marksman had doggy ahlzeimers for about a year, and we were dealing with that OK. The he got to the point where he could not stand, That came on suddenly. It was kinder to help them over the Bridge then to keep them here in pain. I do miss my oldsters with their gray faces and wisdom in their cloudy eyes.

I'm sorry to hear about Grizelda and Marksman.  Two in one month must have been very difficult.

The house seems empty even though I still have 5 furkids.
The other day I swear it sounded like Griz's bark in the yard. And today all the dogs were outside and I heard the crate door bang in the laundry room ???

Oh I am so sorry to hear of Grizelda and Marksman passings. I can not imagine how difficult that must have been losing them so close togther  :'(
I know how you still miss them even though you have other dogs. People have said to us well you still have 2 other dogs. I miss terribly having 3 dogs. Lexi likes the 3 crust cut off her sandwich, I use to give one side to each dog. Now I have one left over--makes me sad everytime I make a sammie. Farley is now getting the extra in order to fatten him up a little..lol
I too swear I hear Pucks bark outside sometimes  :'(
I hope you have found some peace.

Oh man that is so sad. I don't know if I could make a sandwich anymore. 2 in one month....what a heartbreak. Maybe Marksman just plain missed Grizelda too much.
