View Full Version : My Ginger is gone.

04-01-2004, 08:01 PM
Ginger died last night. Around 11:30. She went out and just laid down on the deck, coughed and then was gone. No warning, no signs, she just passed as I watched. At her last check up she was healthy and happy.

The vet belives she had a heart attack. I don't really know, but it doesn't matter now, she's gone. I'm going to miss her so much. Her cute little face and that happy dance she use to do when ever she saw me. She was a sweety.


I posted this once today and deleted it, for reasons of my own, but a good friend said I should come back and do it again. So for her and for Ginger, I have reposted for now. I can't promise it will stay, I'm having a hard time dealing with things right now.


Have You A Dog In Heaven?
Have you a dog in Heaven, Lord?
And do You pat her head?
Does she sit up and beg each night
Before she goes to bed?

Does she look up with shining eyes
when she sees Your smiling face?
Does she wag her stubby, little tail
when she wants to run a race?

Have You a dog in Heaven, Lord?
Is there room for just one more?
'Cause my little boxer died today;
She'll be waiting at Your door.

Please take her into Heaven, Lord,
and keep her there for me.
Just feed her, pet her, love her, Lord;
That's all she'll ask of Thee.

I am so sorry about Ginger.:( I know it is harder when it is so unexpected). Well, it is hard anyway when you lose a pet! My heart goes out to you and your family. You did all there was to give her love and good care. Hold on to all the memories you have of her and know she had one of the best homes and lots of love from you. She is now at Rainbow Bridge hoping mommy doesn't feel too sad.

Hugs to you from me,... Please PM me if you need to talk or anything. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you. I lost a kitty the same way. :(

Oh, I'm so sorry! Please take some comfort in the fact the Ginger went fast and didn't have to suffer. RIP Ginger :(

04-02-2004, 03:04 PM
Pretty Ginger, spicy girl
Heart of gold and eyes of deepest brown
You are missed here on Earth
But I am glad you didn't suffer
Just went to sleep, breaking momma's heart.

So soon they leave,
So much it hurts us
But that wriggly dance will still be in our hearts

And we know you watch from the Rainbow Bridge,
Go see my mom, now,
She'll be there handing out biscuits.
Find my Gracie, there, she wagged the whole dog, too,
And she'll show you around.

04-02-2004, 03:39 PM

I know you're overwhelmed with grief right now but please remember we're here for you when you feel like talking. My heart goes out to you Fox Gal and I'm sending you all my love and support. Bless you beautiful Ginger girl. Sandra

For some reason I felt like I needed to come to this part of the dog section, although I hate doing it.. that feeling was right.

Poor you. :( Poor Ginger.

So sorry for such a sudden loss :( RIP Ginger

I am so sorry for your loss :( I don't usually come to this section, but something drew me here today. Now I know. This is the one place where we can share our grief and know everyone will understand.
There is no way we can enjoy the kind of love that only our dogs can offer and not feel pain and loss when they move on without us. Just know that Gingers life was full and blessed because of YOU Fox-Gal. You gave her the one thing in this world she needed most, someone to love. That's all our dog's ask for and it sounds to me like you loved Ginger, very, very much. Thank you for sharing that beautiful tribute. I will say a prayer for you and for Ginger.

04-04-2004, 07:18 AM
Oh i am so sorry for your loss :( You will be in my thoughts.

Play hard at the bridge dear Boxer baby ginger, you will be missed.

04-05-2004, 08:18 AM
You have my heartfelt sympathy.
Godspeed sweet Ginger.
Take Care of Yourself.

04-05-2004, 08:39 AM
I'm so sorry to hear about Ginger. Wish there was something I could say to make you feel better. Take care.

I am so sorry to hear about Ginger. She is a very beautiful dog.

Just remember, she is thankful that you gave her a good life, and is probably looking down at you right now with gratitude in her eyes, and in her heart.

Rest in peace, sweet Ginger.

A message from Ginger:

Beyond The Rainbow
As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.
I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.

I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.
For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.

Have a great time at the Bridge, Ginger, and say hello to my girls Natasha and Irina.

04-30-2004, 11:53 PM
So sorry to hear! :(

RIP Ginger!
