I am so sorry for your loss of Precious Gus, I do know how hard it is, these 4 legged babies are our family, part of us. Gus will wait for You and Your Husband one day to join him at Rainbow Bridge, and you will never have to part again. This keeps me going, knowing I will see my 4 legged babies again. Sending Prayers and Love to you and your family.

To my dearest family,
Some things I would like to say,
But first of all, to let you know
That I arrived ok.
I’m writing this from Heaven
Where I dwell with God above,
here there’s no more tears or sadness
There is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy
Just because I’m out of sight.
Remember that I’m with you
Every morning, noon, and night.
That day that 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.
I need you here so badly
As part of my big plan.
There’s so much that we have to do
To help our mortal man.
Then God gave me a list of things
He wished for me to do.
And foremost on that list of mine
Is to watch and care for you.
And I will be beside you
Every day and week and year.
And when you’re sad,
I’m standing there to wipe away the tears.
And when you lie in bed at night
The days chore 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’re only human
They’re 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
Of all that God has planned,
But if I were to tell you,
You would not understand.
And to my many friends trust,
God knows what it best.
I’m still not very far away from you
I’m just beyond the crest.
And now I am contented that my life,
It was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along the way
I made someone smile.
When you’re walking down the street
And you’ve got me on your mind,
I’m walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.
And when you feel that gentle breeze
Or the wind upon your face,
That’s me giving you a great big hug
Or just a soft embrace.
And when it’s time for you to go
From that body to be free,
Remember, you’re not going,
You are coming here to me.
And I will always love you
from that land way up above.
I’ll be in touch again soon,

Christmas In Heaven


'Tis Christmas in Heaven~ What a beautiful sight!
It's my first one here; Everything is all right.

The crib is adorned with the brilliance of the star;
Wisemen have come from near and far.

I've met all our dear ones, who preceded us here;
The reunion was lovely. And event full of cheer.

And tonight we'll all gather, in reverance we'll kneel,
For the Babe in the cradle up in Heaven is REAL.

I think of my family that I left behind
And I pray that your Christmas is as blessed as mine.

Please shed no more tears, for my soul is at rest.
Just love one another, live life to its best.

Yes, it's Christmas in Heaven, So I've heard them say.
Yet Christmas in Heaven happens everyday.
Love Gus

I am so sorry for your loss,I am breaking up as I write this. Be comforted that You were with Gus when he crossed over the bridge. I truly believe that he did open his eyes to say goodbye and thank you for the love you gave him.

Thank you, everybody!
It was a rough first week, but we survived.

Like fate, we saw a craigslist add of somebody wanting to get rid of their 2.5-3y/o Olde English a few days ago. They'd gotten a new puppy and were bored with the 'old' dog. She is certainly helping us not dwell on the sadness, but we can't help but compare everything to Gus!
This poor girl is underfed, untrained, and she's a bit of a handful - But we are keeping our doors open to help her help us.

I collected Gus' Ashes on Tuesday and the vet did such a beautiful job <3 We miss Gus everyday but accepting he passed in our arms, which I know meant everything to him.

So sorry for your loss. Glad you are able to help the new OEB! You ran across the ad for her for a reason! ❤️

MEANT TO BE YOURS, MAYBE GUS SENT HER KNOWING THE LOVING,
WONDERFUL HOME SHE'D HAVE WITH YOUR FAMILY.

GOD BLESS Y'ALL FOR RESCUING HER. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HER PICS.
I LOVE OEBS AND BOTH MY BULLDOGS WERE ADOPTED, SO WORTH IT
ONCE THEY ADJUST TO YOUR HOME & SETTLE IN :)

I AM SO HAPPY FOR HER AND Y'ALL...GOD IS GOOD!!!
