Bridget


My sweet Bridget died today! Bridget was seriously the best dog anyone could have asked for. Since I was very young my Dad always said that we could have a dog if I could find a pure bred beagle for free. It took me a while, but my junior year I succeeded and we brought Bridget home as a new member of our family.

She was always so happy and loving. Bridget was a mother at heart. She loved to give love to anyone who asked for it, or anyone who needed it. Until her dying day she even continued to try and give love to our cat Sheba who always refused it.

Bridget took care of our family emotionally for so long and I am going to miss her so much! (I am crying right now) For a while she has been sick and in pain. I know she is running circles around heaven and spreading her joy to the angels there. I just hope she knows how much I really loved her! I am just so glad that I got to say goodbye when I was in San Diego.

Sorry Kira (and family). It's a sad day.

Kira, I'm sorry. It is sad when you lose a treasured pet. My childhood dog passed away a few years ago, and it was really a sad day! I'm glad you got one last visit with your Bridget. :)

I'm still crying :( This morning Sheba actually stuck her head in Bridget's little bed area looking for her.

Sorry to hear about your dog. I think of the day Jake will pass away and it fills me with sadness. As you stated, thinking of him "running" around makes me feel better.

Peter told me last night, he was quite upset, he loved Bridget, wishes he could have a dog just like her. She was always so friendly and loved being petted all the time. We will miss her.

It is really hard to say good bye to our beloved pets. I always have that question mark: will I see you again? Hope you feel better very soon.

I made the mistake of watch Marley and Me the same week that Bridget was put down. NOT SMART! I was crying so hard Trevor didn't even know what to do...
