    Thank you for that reassurance Willem. I have 2 who will be telling me soon and I hope they tell me clearly and strongly - I don't want them to suffer because I didn't hear them.

    Willem: Us peeps cry because we still miss those that be with you at the bridge. Sometimes we do not take the time to feel they are still with us. Or maybe we try too hard to feel them and are wanting it too much. Maybe your words will help us to be quiet and just listen? Or maybe Bear needs special ed in that "visiting" class too? For I stare out at the Northwest like he used to stare, but still I don't see. And that makes me sad. And it is a sadness for me, because I do know he is OK with you and all his friends old and new. I just wish that all of my thoughts of him were only the happy ones and not the missing him that is still so strong. Maybe you could help him out with the visting classes?
    I\'m not crazy. I\'m just a little unwell.

    Dearest Willem: How timely, and thank you. My dearest friend Shamus will be joinig you tomorrow at the bridge. He is my dog for the last 15 years. The bridge has been calling for him and I have been fighting those calls every day. Today, we finally made the call for my horse vet to come and assist him to the bridge where he will re-gain his sight, his hearing, his happiness....

    dear Willem...please take good care of him.Please also make sure he understands that I was not there because my heart would just not allow it. It is not that I don't LOFF him anymore. He will be a great friend for you and all of the others at the bridge. He loffs popcorn and would want you to know that you should not be offended if you tell him to go to bed and he growls out you the whole way!ANd please help him understand I only did what I thought was best for him.

    If tears could build a stairway

    And memories a lane,

    We would walk right up to Heaven

    To be with them again.

    Pearl: (Grumble, grumble, grumble) I walk ALL the way up those stairs and who do they send to welcome me? The most handsom Willem! That magnifcent red horse stood there surrounded by the purest light and wonderfully warm feeling of LOFF and Welcome Home!! Of course, royalty such as I deserved no less, but they could have at least put in an escalator!

    Willem, you were always quite a guy! There are tears on my cheeks but they are there because you have brought me great joy. I do give thanks for every moment with every one of my wonderful friends that are with you at the Bridge, and for those they sent to be with me now in their stead. Thank you for the kind and reassuring words, Willem, you are quite the ambassador!

    Dear Willem,
    You might see two dogs at the bridge: a funny looking red-and-white spotted aussie shepherd, Harley. He's the one who keeps trying you all to STAY TOGETHER!!! And who keeps saying "NO ROUGH-HOUSING". A lovely rottie-cross girl, Lug Nut ("I still have my girlish figure!"), will be with him, chasing all the little animals and generally making trouble.
    They are the canine loves of my life, and both left me within 5 months of each other last year.
    Tell them I love them, and think of them always.

    xoxoxo

    Willem, thank you so much for your message from the bridge. I have occasionally been visited by the yellowhorse but haven't heard from her in a while and la canina bruna keeps sending me stuff, mostly stray cats and dogs. I've tried to tell her she can stop now but she says it will take many dogs and cats to fill her space on earth, she always thought highly of herself. You might run into her at the ice cream stand with a man named Frank, that's where they hang out, she says when a new soul shows up, her and Frank give them ice cream. I believe she gives directions to my house out to special dogs and cats that are lost, I also think she might have mistaken some goats for dogs since they seem to be piling up here also.
    Thanks again, it's been a little gloomy for me lately since the yellowhorse's best earthly horse friend is limping around and I have wondered about her but I am comforted knowing that if it be time, they will be together again.

    Danke - das ist zer gutte Herr Willem.
    I am trying to make a decision on a very, very much loved feline best buddy who has been there for me through thick and thin. While I know the end is coming, I am very torn and unsure about timing.
    This helps.

    Willem, as always, you have brought a smile to my lips, and a tear to my eye. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/sadsmile.gif

    Riggs, I'm sorry to hear your news. But you'll know when it's time, you'll just know. And then it won't be a hard decision anymore.

    Willem, how good to hear from you. I miss your wise advise and smart remarks every time I am on this board. I have a small favor to ask. I had a wonderful Rottie until August when he was invited to the bridge. I miss him very much. There is a lady here who says that she can see him following me. I hope he is staying because he wants too, but if he is here because of my pain, will you tell Rock he can go on to that better place?? I'll be okay until we are together again. Thanks.
