North, Our Golden Angel

by Cindy Yaws
(Forney, TX, USA)



North, our precious Golden, left us on 7/23/2009. He was 12 1/2 years old and too young to leave us. It has been almost 5 months to the day that he crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

We miss him so very, very much. I miss our morning rituals, our quiet time together before heading off to work. He was the most beautiful of Goldens to us -- sweet natured, loving and so eager to please.

We had to make the heart-rending choice to let him sleep forever, but to this day I still feel guilt for letting him go. His pain was too much and no matter how much I wanted him to stay, to get better, we just couldn't let him suffer.

We suffer now here on Earth without his calming, loving spirit. I don't think we will make it through Christmas without breaking, but will do our best so Hannah, his beloved Golden companion, will not be stressed too much. We want him back, would give anything to have him back healthy and alive.

Be safe our Angel, and wait for us at the bridge. We love you.

I know exactly how you feel. I had to put my Luke to sleep 9/26/09.

This will be the first Christmas in 12 years without him. When my daughter and I were decorating the tree I found his Christmas sock and had to leave the room. My daughter put it up anyway.

I look back and really don't recall how that big old Lab got into my heart. Christmas will not be the same without that big old boy tearing his presents open.

I understand how you feel, having to make the heartbreaking decision to put our babies to sleep.

My little George was in pain and suffering and had gone blind from seizures, and I still feel like I somehow let him down. I know in my heart that we made the right choice but it still hurts. It has not even been a month since my little Georgie left me.

I also agree that Christmas is a sad holiday for me this year. I have little presents for him that I had already bought. I will keep them forever.

I feel your loss. I have a hole in my heart also, so I know how you feel. I lost my little Opie Dec 13th 2008. He crossed the rainbow bridge to be with my family members and to show your North the ropes.

There are people who need the kiss of a dear pet over that bridge so they wait for us until we get our kisses when we cross the bridge to meet them and be with them forever.

God bless you.

A pet lover.
