We’ll miss you, Grampa J

Hello dear furends. Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers and crossed paws the last couple of weeks for my Grampa J. But he finally just decided that it was time for him to go to Heaven.

Our hearts are broken in a thousand little pieces but I know that his doggies Boone, Sam, Joe, Sadie, Trixie, Karma, Fluffy and Charley were waiting to give him a great big wiggly, waggly welcome at the Bridge. And even though we’re all gonna miss him something terrible, it sure does make me awfully happy to know that he’s in such good paws. 

From Mom: Thank you so much to everyone who has expressed concern about my father. He was a very special man who taught me many things, including the importance of treating animals with kindness, love and respect. I was incredibly lucky and blessed to call him “daddy.”

    A Father

    A father is that special someone,
    Who seems so very tall;
    As he hold your hand in his,
    When you are oh so small;

    He rides you on his shoulders,
    And watches when you play;
    And laughs when you see a bug,
    Then scream and run away;

    He has a twinkle in his eye,
    When you ask for your first date;
    Then gives his approving nod,
    And says, Just don’t be late.

    And now after all these years,
    When I think about it all;
    I see it was his caring love,
    That made him seem so tall.

  38. We are very sad for your loss, and we want you to know we’re thinking about you and your family, Amber! There really aren’t words to make a loss like that better, but please know that we are sending you all our healing vibes and best wishes!

    Oh, Amber, Mayzie & Brudder Ranger! We’re so very sorry for your loss. He was blessed with a good life, you were blessed with a great dad/grandpa. Our prayers are with you in this time of such sharp pain; it’s like shrapnel in the heart. Time doesn’t heal all wounds, but it does help restore the balance, so you are mostly filled with the good memories and not the loss. Until then, huge hugs.

  46. That makes the Mango feel sad. I know how much I would miss my Grandpa, but think of all the wonderful doggies and other furkids he has as pals now.


  47. No words to convey how sorry and sad I am for your loss. I never knew Grampa J, but through the list of all the doggies waiting for him, through the heart and love you show through your blog and the care you give to your pets, and through the love I can see in your family as you share pictures of weddings and get-togethers, I have to say, “Job well done, Grampa J.”
