He was born in my arms and he died in my arms... The journey in between was the most beautiful journey I will ever experience in my life.

Rusty was my life. He gave, he taught, he listened and he understood. Spending even 5 minutes with him made life seem so easy and happy to be living. He came into my life when I needed him the most and he stuck by me through all of it. It has been a 11.5 year relationship with him and it continues beyond this world... to the world he has gone to.

He was naughty, strong, intelligent , selfless and a lovely dog.... his love for us will remain unmatched. I love you baby and I really pray to God to keep you safe and in a world which is as beautiful as you made mine!

It's Been 4 Years....
by: Riti

Hey baby. It's been 4 years since you decided to move on, and I still miss you. Rusty, you showed me a lot of things; I learned a lot I didn’t know. But you forgot to teach me one last thing and that was how to let you go...

Will love till the end of the world!

12 years ago today was Rusty's first walk out of home
by: Riti Sinha

Thanks Mom...I love you. Thanks Pier and Tom. Your words touched me. This day 12 years ago was when I took Rusty out for his first walk out of home. He was 11 days old that day and still figuring out a lot of uncertainties he had landed in :). I remember the joy I watching your baby take his first steps outside home, getting ready to face the world.

There were a lot of first time things after this but this remains special to me.

Miss Me But Let Me Go

To my daughter, who misses Rusty...

Rusty would say this to you --

Miss me but let me go.
When I come to the end of the road,
And the sun has set for me,
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me but not for long.
Remember the days we shared.
Miss me but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take,
And all must go alone.
It's all a part of the master's plan,
A further step to home.
Miss me but let me go.

Memory of Rusty
by: Pier

Rita, I am sorry for your loss of Rusty.
Your written memorial of Rusty is very touching and so genuine and familiar to those of us who have also, like your, lost a companion pet.
Sincerely, Pier

I come here and read the beautiful testimonies that people write about their best friends that have passed. It helps me to know that others feel the same as I do.

I lost my buddy Ned 4 months ago and I still hurt. (You can read about him at "My Little Buddy Ned.")

Rusty sounded like a great friend and companion. It gets better day by day and I wish you luck. Listen for Rusty's bark in the wind and if you do not rush it, you will see him in your dreams.
