    Mandy has went to the RB

    Mandy was my aunt's dog.

    After she died of breast cancer a few years ago her daughter (my cousin) took her. Noone really thought that this sweet girl would make it without her because she was always in her lap, she never left her side (unless of course my mom was there ).

    I talked to my mom this morning & she told me that Mandy died in my cousin's arms This girl lived to the ripe old age of 23! So I'd say she lived a full life.

    Now my cousin feels she's lost not only a dog, but a piece of her mother. Please say a prayer for my cousin Kathy, I know her heart is breaking....

    23 is amazing, those smaller breeds can live a long time! Maybe Huney could visit to give her some gold-dog comfort? Play hard at the Rainbow Bridge, Mandy, and give your Momma lots of kisses, she'll be so glad to see you again!

    Oh Anna, I'm so sorry I know your cousin Kathy's heart must be breaking. I fully understand that special link to your Mom that she now feels is lost to her But I can't help but think that dear Mandy missed her Mommy so and needed to be with her. It's always hardest on us who are left "behind." What an amazing life this precious little girl had on this earth; 23 years of love and devotion, first from her Mom and then from her loving "sister" Kathy. I hope that Kathy can take some comfort in knowing that her Mom and Mandy are now rejoicing in a loving reunion at the Rainbow Bridge. Bless your cousin Cathy for having the love in her heart to give this very special girl a safe and loving refuge these past few years and the courage to comfort her safely in her arms until her time had passed. Please tell Kathy we are thinking of her with love and keeping her in our thoughts and prayers. Bless you precious Mandy. I know you and your mommy are so happy to be with each other once more. Love, Sandra

    Anna! 23 years for Mandy is amazing. That girl surely had a love for life, even after she lost her "mom", to go on for so long. I know Kathy must feel so devastated right now, but what a precious gift she gave to her mom, having Mandy in her home and loving her and keeping her healthy for so long.

    Rest in peace, sweet Mandy. You parted this earth in the best of ways, quietly and peacefully.

    Anna, please share our good thoughts and our grief with Kathy, over the loss of Mandy.

    Such sweet words guys, brings tears to my eyes.

    I'm going to print this out and send it to Kathy, I'm sure it will make her very happy to hear such wonderful things.

    I'm sure Mandy is happy to finally be with her mommy, and if she needs showed around at all my Keisha will do the honors

    Don't print it out yet. Please include my comments as well.

    Kathy, I'm so sorry for Mandy's death. Take comfort in knowing that your Mom and Mandy are together and never to be parted again. I know you are hurting all over again and I wish there was something I could say to ease your pain. Bless you for being there for Mandy.

    RIP Mandy and make sure you look up Toshie and Trixie. They will be happy to share their tennis balls with you and romp in the tall grass.

    Hugs to you Anna.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Kathy, you should stop by here now and again for a visit and some {{{HUGS}}} from people that honestly can identify with the sort of heartbreak you must be going through. Looking at some of the dogs & other pets and reading their stories is marvelous therapy! Really, it can bring some warmth to even the most bruised of hearts.

    Anna, I am so sorry that I am late with my response but please pass my condolences on to Kathy on the loss of Mandy.
    I know how hard it is. I felt the same way when had to come to terms with the loss of my Dobie Max. I loved that dog dearly but I think I also felt his loss more because he was the last link with my husband, Fred.
    Sending lots of love to her, and tell her she will be in my thoughts and prayers.
