Goodbye, Mama OC…



We are very sad around here. Grandma OC went to the Rainbow Bridge this afternoon at about 1:30 p.m. We will miss her...


My Dearest OC, 
 
I love you with all my heart. I was there when you were born, and watched you grow and learn to be the wonderful helper dog you were to me throughout your life. You've been there for me all these years, loving me and helping me when I couldn't do so many things for myself. When you went down into your wheelchair and then into being totally bedridden these past several months, I was happy to be able to give back a little of the care you gave me.  
 When the Big C made it hard for you to breathe this past week and the Seizure Monster came to call last night, I knew it was time, so today I took you to the Bridge so you can go to your Mama Mist and Daddy Bud and all the other friends that have gone ahead of you.

No more trouble breathing... no more pain. Run and play, chase squirrels and rabbits and enjoy the things you haven't been able to do these past few years. I will see you when I get there, my sweet corgi girl. Love, Mama

OC, little wonderful corgi dog. You had a good long life full of lots of adventures. I know the past few months have been hard on you, but you are running free now.

Sasha sent us. We are so very sorry to hear of your loss. But OC will now be pain-free and be able to run through the fields and meadows at the Bridge. She will be forever safe in your heart.

We hope you will visit Our Rainbow Friends and consider including OC.

I feel your sorrow - our Corgis are so special, and OC was so dear to you and to all of us who got to know her on your blog! I am sorry knowing she is gone from you now, but I have no doubts that you will be reunited again some day, because God, who loves his children, also loved his creatures, and how could He not have reunions planned for us and our dear beloved pets? Bless you, Linda!

I am so very sorry you lost your sweet old girl. We lost our old lady last October, and while I know it was just her time to go and that she lived her life so fully that her body just couldn't keep up anymore, I still miss her. It's never easy, but please know that we're thinking of you!
