The worst thing about pet ownership is knowing that no matter what you do, they will almost never outlive their owners. My Fiona was my best friend who saw me through my worst moments and darkest days. She always knew how to comfort me and knew when I needed her the most. She passed away tonight from injuries she sustained from being hit by a car after she wandered out of our backyard today. The sad reality is that I need her the most right now 💔💔💔 I am not angry at anyone. In fact I am beyond thankful the person who hit Fiona called the police. I am glad the police officer took Fiona to the hospital. I am also glad @bassinbenji was the best person there to have helped us through this difficult time. So to all pet owners reading this, hug your dogs a little tighter & love them as much as I loved my Fiona. #rainbowbridge#rip#bestfriend#heartbroken
Happy Thanksgiving friends! 🦃🍁 While I’m thankful for Logan & Aspen, friends & family, etc.; today my mind is on Maci. A year ago today I lost her. Maci was my heart dog, a best friend. I still miss everything about her. I dwell on her last few days as if there was anything else I could have done for her. I still research treatments and wonder if anything could have given her more time. I’m sad that she never got to meet Aspen and help raise her. I feel cheated that I didn’t have her in my life longer. I could go on and on. But mostly I’m thankful for the time that we did have together. She made me smile everyday with her sweet temperament, wiggly butt, and her sassy ways. 🐾 I miss you so much May May. If love could have saved you, you’d still be here. 🖤🖤 #missingmaci#rainbowbridge#oneyear
A very very special #throwbackthursday !!
I am so grateful for my girl Starr(and my girls and Tiger!)!❤️ She is the one who started this journey of dogs! Before her I didn’t have a dog. One day I fell in love with her on the website, the next day we visited. The shelter told us they had a ton of pups who came in and got adopted and Starr got over looked many times. They let us take her for a walk and play with her. I fell in love! She was the best companion. Protected me no matter what. Truly a great dog. Because of her, we got Flora, and because of Flora we got Halo! The best group of dogs anyone could ask for. She was 2 years old when we adopted her. Unfortunately, this past January(about the 21st or so) we noticed her eyes were yellow. We rushed her to the vet, we visited at least 4 vets trying to get an answer. Her Liver was failing, she wasn’t strong enough for surgery, she had to be force feed with a syringe 5 times a day, she had to stay at the vet multiple times. It wasn’t good. We got one more week with her. The morning of February 1st, she was suffering... her stomach was even more bloated, she wouldn’t take her medicine, she couldn’t control her bladder, and she couldn’t walk.... it was time. It was the hardest day of my life. I have never lost an animal before. She was so young. It’s so hard to let any animal go... especially a 6 year old... My point is, this Thanksgiving, I am SO grateful for her and for my current dogs and cat.❤️ I don’t know what I would have done without them❤️ Please cuddle your pets tonight!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
We unexpectedly had to say goodbye to our old man Roscoe today . 32 pairs of shoes, unknown amount of historic books, tinsel, Christmas presents you name it he ate it, not to mention his multiple backyard escapes and unknown adventures. In the end 14 years later he will always be the handsome guy. We will miss you buddy ❤🐶🐾
Today I wish I could give you a cuddle and tell you how much I love and miss you. I took this photo on my Birthday 2 years ago. I would have never thought that a year later Id have to say goodbye to you. Life is unfair and we have to learn to cherish the moments we do have. Ive missed you so much since you went away in May this year... I dont think there will ever come a day where I dont miss you. On my birthday this year I will be thinking of you and wishing you were here.
Maggie had a rare form of internal lymphoma. She had no external swollen lymph nodes, and no symptoms of the disease until she was basically on deaths door. She was only 1. 1/2 yrs old which is even more rare as even our oncologist had never seen a dog her age with such rapidly progress cancer.
Canine cancer is more common than most people realise. I myself wish I had known the warning signs and symptoms beforehand. I wish I was more aware. Nowadays I focus a lot on spreading awareness. Not only for Maggie but for all my friends, family and anyone who has a fur baby 💛
Please I cant stress it enough educate yourself, have your dog/cat/pets checked regularily at the vets and know the warning signs.
Early detection of canine cancer and prompt treatment is vital !
A dog untreated may only live up to 2 weeks maybe even less if sympyomatic.
Hug your fur children tight each night and tell them you love them every chance you get.
This has been one of the better photos I have ever taken of Jiji. There was an Instagram page I started following before I lost Jiji and now I'm glad I have after his sudden departure only three weeks ago. @morethantuna wants to create a community to share in the grief of a beloved cat. So here's my story for #tunatributes as you can see in this photo Jiji had these striking golden eyes and tabby stripes in his fur, I have never seen a cat more beautiful than him. He was so full of energy and lived his life to the fullest. One of my favourite things he used to do was to either lay on my chest or get on my shoulders and just start kneading away and purring like crazy. I've be covered in drool by the end but the sounds of his purrs was one of the happiest things I have locked away in my memories. He adored kisses from me too and would even tilt his head to let me give him a kiss. I miss him so much still and ache to have him here next to me.
The 22nd November marked one year since I lost my beautiful Honey bunny so suddenly and unexpectedly. I will never forget that day 💔 the world got a little bit darker when her beautiful soul left it. Wherever you are Booboo, I hope you are having the best time. I will always love you and cherish the almost four years we had together 💗💗💗💗💜💜💜💜💜#happyhousebunny#adoptdontshop#unitedcoloursofbunnies#rainbowbridge
Today, I'm thankful for a lot of things. Like my family, my boyfriend, my amazing animals, my house, my vehicles, my job. But most of all, I'm thankful for you Kris. You made sure, no matter what, the eight, almost nine, years we had together were worth living. In my highs and lows you were always there with a curled up, wagging tail and a personality unrivaled. You are my heart and my soul. I miss you so much sweet boy. Give Luigi a huge slobbery kiss for me.
Today and every day, we are so thankful to have our spectacular cat family, and the human family that loves them unconditionally. And of course, our Instagram family, made up of each and every one of you that love and support us - we hope to inspire a love of animals that knows no borders or imperfections in each and every one of you ❤️
We are thankful for each and every cat that have come into our lives, even it wasn’t nearly for long enough and they crossed the #rainbowbridge
Photo 6 is Roscoe, who passed away last year of cancer caught too late, at only three years old. Photo 7 is Augustus, or Gus, who was an unfortunate victim of FIP and didn’t make it to a year old. Photo 8 is Mallorie, who wanted so desperately to be an only cat, and who are we to deny her happiness? She is a happy pampered princess in a new home to this day. They are all dearly missed, and we feel blessed to have called them our own every day
#happythanksgiving to all! 🧡
I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last cuddled you 💔 The only love I ever knew from when I was 12. My only reason for waking up in the morning, for carrying on through every black hole I ever entered, the joy in my heart. My whole world has revolved around you and now it’s so empty. Nothing could ever prepare me for a life without you. If someone could guarantee me I’d be with you again, I’d die in an instant 💙 My undying death defying love for you. Love is like an energy, rushing and rushing inside of me 🎶 #rainbowbridge#love#missyou#alwaysandforever#mywholeworld 🌎 #waitforme
Words can't explain the pain that is in my heart right now. You took your last breath right at home surrounded by everyone who loved you on a day that is made for giving thanks. I am thankful for 11 years of unconditional love and companionship. I am also thankful that you decided it was time for you to go and did not put me in the position of making the hard decision for you because you knew I couldn't do it. I love you always and forever and will miss you for the rest of my life. Say hello to grandpa for me. Until we meet again 🌈❤😢 #rainbowbridge#missingyou#untilwemeetagain
