Two Shining Stars

Two new stars shine in the night sky.
They twinkle so brightly with memories of days gone by.
Jill (left) and Libby (right) were two beautiful doxies that lived with my mom's friend Judy. Libby was quite old at 15 and started to fail this past summer. She couldn't hear and her sight was gone. All summer long Jill stayed close by Libby acting as her eyes and ears. She watched out for the big sister she loved with her huge dachsund heart.
Last month Judy and her husband had to help Libby to the Rainbow Bridge. It was heartbreaking for them but they knew it was time. When they didn't come home with Libby, Jill stopped eating. Within 4 days Jill couldn't get up. The doctor tried to help Jill but 5 days after Libby left for the Bridge, Jill joined her. Needless to say, this has been very, very difficult for Judy and her husband. Though they were prepared to say farewell to Libby, Jills departure has left them heartbroken. Judy doesn't have a blog but I know all of you will join me in sending her our paws and tears of support. We know there are more doxies out there that need to be rescued and when Judy and her husband are ready some lucky doxie(s) will have a wonderful home waiting for them.

Pedro, that's so sad that Judy and her husband lost both of their dogs. Our Mom can't imagine losing either one of us, never mind both of us. It must be incredibly hard from them. Mom will for sure keep the two of them in her thoughts and prayers. -Hector and Lola

We are sorry to hear about your furends. I am sure Judy and her husband have given them a good life and that is the best humans can do for us furbodys.I also hope when they feel better they will have a place for new furbodys. Some humans say they will never have another, John and Brenda said that but I am so pleased they started to foster,things might have been so different for me and a lot of others.

Oh no. So sad. At least they are together again. Licks

That is so sad, must be very hard to lose two so close together. Mom was very worried about Phantom when Dakota left us, they were very close. And then he had that awful surgery. But he managed to pull through and is doing OK now. We will keep your friends in our thoughts and prayers. We also hope that some new little furbabies make their way to their home soon.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

That is so sad and right at the holiday season. We are thinking of Judy and sending hugs. My mom had that happen with 2 old beagles (19& 20)--one went and the other went 3 weeks later. Strange thing--they never liked each other but couldn't go on alone. So my mom understands this happening so well.

love & wags,
River & mom
