Goodbye Tucker

Tucker is with his sister Charmin now and at peace. I will put together a healing memorial celebration of his life this weekend when I've had a chance to breathe and dry my eyes. Thank you all for the kind words you've shared throughout this journey.

    A Special Place

    You have a special place, Dear Lord
    That I know you'll always keep.
    A special place reserved for dogs,
    To peacefully fall asleep.

    A place with fluffy pillows,
    And a yard for hiding bones,
    With maybe a little babbling creek,
    That rushes over stones.

    With wide green fields and flowers,
    For those who never knew
    Of running, playing freely
    Under sky of perfect blue.

    Lord, I know you keep this special place,
    And so, to you I pray
    For one oh so special dog
    Who came to you today.

    He was full of strength and love,
    And so very, very wise.
    The puppy look she once had,
    This morning left his eyes.

    He will be dearly missed, Lord,
    This special love of mine.
    But now, he will romp and play
    In your land that's so divine.

    Speak to my baby softly, please
    With a hug and warm hello.
    He’s a special gift to you, Dear Lord
    From me - who loves her so.

  16. We are so very sorry that Tucker has passed. We ache for all of you. We came to love your little boy very much!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie, Mitch and Sue

  17. Oh no. No. No.

    Moma is past crying. She is sobbing. There was something about Tucker that grabbed her heartstrings. Prob'ly because he reminded her so much of her Molly, who left her about two years ago. Maybe because she knew Tucker suffered from the same nasty C thing that her moma's Yorkie, Chloe did. Certainly because she knows the pain you are feeling right now.

    We are so very sorry we didn't read the last couple of posts about Tucker. We'd've been sending even more prayers than we already were. We read about him on Asta's blog just now ... and hoped and prayed she was referring to a different little dog. Not OUR Tucker.

    Please feel the support that is out here for you. All of you. Moma has no doubt but that the spirits of all those wonderful little (and big) dogs that have already left us are together, shining down, breaths in the wind, hoping that we realize that all is well, and someday we'll feel the joy of togetherness again.

    We are so sorry.
    Jake and Fergi, MomaSally (and NinaGirl ... she'll be very sad when she hears. We had so hoped to stop through on one of our trips someday and meet your sweet boy.)

  18. We heard from Khyra and wanted to stop by and express our deepest condolences. We lost a beloved kitty boy last weekend and are still reeling from the sadness, so we feel your pain.

  19. We got here via Khyra to say how sad we are that a beloved companion is gone from your life. Please know our thoughts are with you and that Tucker is with many of our friends, waiting at the bridge.

    KT and Lady

  20. We are sooooo very sorry! Rest well, sweet Tucker and run like the wind with all our pals at the Rainbow Bridge! We will cross all our paws for your family because they are the ones who are in pain!
