Dear Friends... Vote for this post

Roo will be going to the Rainbow Bridge soon. We're still watching and waiting, but he is not going to get better. His episode are happening more frequently. There are no miracles for him. So please be there for us. Right now, it's one good day( which gives us false hope) and bad days. Part of me is having trouble accepting it, part of me wants to let him go when he is ready.

We are also at odds over burial vs. cremation and I want Roo's ashes and if we ever leave here, he can go with us. Trip thinks that's creepy. Any words of wisdom/advice?I

Than you.

Cheryl and Trip this s heart breaking news to read ..its so very sad,,I wondered if the vet had given him any meds to stem the episodes a little or not. ..we have all been there and you will know when the time is right for Dear Roo to Cross the Bridge to a new life...its so very hard when the time comes but we have to do it for Love...I will ssshhh now or I will be full of tears....all our puppers have been buried at homes we have lived in and I have lockets of all their fur...its only  my choice as I could not bear to burn their fur bodies after the soul and spirit had left for the bridge..but then I also would not wish to be cremated...as far as I think I know lots of people who still have their dogs Cats and husbands ashes with them...One lady had them in urns and caskets on her dressing table in her bedroom..I remember well 2 kitties either side and her husband Garth in the centre...when she died she wanted for them all to be scattered together....trouble was when I dusted them ...bits of the ashes seeped out and ended up on the carpet so had to be hoovered up....goodness knows where part of them ended up!...I would love to have all the puppers still with me in one form but  the only other way would have been taxidermy but I could never do that to them  either...although I warned Eric if he did not behave sometimes he would be made into a hat!....Cheryl my heart is with you and do what you feel is right for you.....Please give Roo a Big Kiss from us all  and tell him we love him.....Hugs to you and Trip Annie and Gang xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oh Cheryl, you are facing such a hard decision, just like a lot of us have done. I'm trying to gather my thoughts as the tears run down my cheeks. I can tell you our experience with Kelsie. I know we kept her with us longer than we should have because we couldn't bear the thought of losing her. Then one day I looked into her beautiful brown eyes and the sparkle had gone out of them. That's when I knew it was time. It still haunts me to this day--that far away look she had. It was as if she had already left us and was waiting for us to release her from the pain. Roo has been so much a part of TC it's as if we all know him personally--all the adventures, and funny posts of things he's done over the years. As for your other question. I'm not a believer in cremation. All of our pups are buried in their garden, each with a headstone. We never plan on leaving this place till they carry us away, but we know that all that is there is a shell. Their spirits and souls are waiting for us up in Heaven and we firmly believe we'll be reunited with all of them one day. As you struggle with your decision, please know that you, Trip, and dear Roo are in my thoughts and prayers. Please give him a big hug and gentle kiss from Emmie and me.
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

Oh Cheryl, My heart is breaking right now and am tears.  Not the news we wanted to hear.  Roo will tell you when he is ready to go to the bridge, enjoy him for as much time as you have.


I had Buster Cremated, I wanted  his  ashes with me, like you I knew that if I moved I would want  to take him with me, also I see  his cremation box every and I feel that he is still with me.  I would go with cremation if  I were you


You know that we are here for you and you are in my thoughts and prayers.


god bless  you and dear little Roo.

This breaks my heart Cheryl.
We all love Roo so very much and I am so devastated to hear
that he is just not getting better.
My hugs and love for all of you and Roo as he passes to the
Rainbow Bridge.
I have always had my Westies cremated.
There is some comfort to me to always have them with me
until I die when I will ask to be buried with all my pups urns.
Just like Cindy who created Westies Unite on Dogster.
She passed away in June from cancer.
She was barely 60.
Her beloved Westie Atticus Fynch passed away two years ago
and Cindy had him cremated.
When Cindy was buried this summer, she was buried with
his ashes and the gravestone has an engraved image of
Cindy and her precious Atticus.
That's the way I want to go.

Rough morning Vote for this post Reply to this Message Reply with a quote

It's not been a good morning. Roo had 3 seizures before 6 a.m. He would just come out of it for a while then another came on. They are lasting longer. I sat with him on the floor and he rested his head on me. I told him it's ok to go. He is resting now.

Cheryl I am so sorry.  You know that you'll know when he is ready to go.  We will all be here for you.  I have had all of my pets cremated so that they can go with us where ever we are.  Their ashes will be spread along with ours when we are gone.  Lots of hugs to you and Trip.

Love Rebecca and Connor

We are so sorry to hear about Roo.

I remember all the fun times we had reading all about your little boy and all the club adventures he went on.

This is the hardest decision we have to make for our precious little ones.

I know how sad you must feel and find the strength and compassion to make that decision.

God bless you and Roo we will keep him in our prayers and thoughts.

Love Allen and Riley
