When It Rains…

May 9, 2012 - Author: Amy - 33 Comments

Our puppies have been staying with my in-laws on their farm while we’ve been displaced.  And they love it there.  They have lots of land to run on, they get to chase cows and horses, and they get spoiled terribly.

It is the one comforting thought when you lose a pet.  Knowing that they were loved well and spent their last days happy.


We brought our sweet, happy, loyal Toby home for the first and last time last night.

And our hearts are broken.

    There is a poem, called Rainbow Bridge, that someone gave me when I lost my cat years ago that helped me. I don’t know if you have read it before, but here is a link:
    Even now when I read it, it makes me sad in a very happy way.
