Molly never made it through that rawhide she stole

A while back I wrote about Molly taking a rawhide during a visit to the groomer. Her health had been deteriorating, but that incident wasn't all that long ago and she was getting along okay. Wow did that change. And in the last couple of days it drastically changed. I feel bad. We waited too long to have her put to sleep. It wasn't that we waited for a miracle. We accepted that she had lived a long life, but it's so hard to decide when to take that final step. She died this morning before I could take her in to have it done. Davie won't leave the bed they shared, but I think he'll be better than I expected. And that rawhide? She never did make it through that thing. Up until a few days ago we could hear her now and then working on it. I'm going to leave it in it's spot for a few days. Davie never seemed to have any interest in it. I'll see if he changes his mind - at least once he starts eating. He's on a bit of a hunger strike today.

(((hifi))) I'm sorry to hear that Molly left her rawhide un-chewed. Poor Davie. Maybe he'll have a change of heart about the rawhide. She was a lucky dog to be so loved.

I'm so sorry for your loss even if it was expected for some time now. And for Davie, an extra special rub behind the ears from me. (Your wife will have to take care of that for you, Hifi. I mean a rub behind the ears for you.) Sigh. Losing pets is especially difficult because they don't ask for much from us. They just want love.

My sympathy to you and Mrs. Hi on Molly's passing. I truly enjoyed hearing (reading?) your stories about her and her partner in crime, Davie. The most recent one about stealing the chewie had me in tears of laughter, especially when I initially thought it was a person who took it.

I'm going to miss hearing Molly stories. I hope Davie is able to get over her loss and enjoy the rawhide she left behind for him to finish. My condolences to you, Mrs. Hifi and Davie.

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, 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 and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying 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 the 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 Rainbow Bridge together....
