Tina, darling, darling Tina heart

I am so so so sorry and so ... I don't even know how to describe it ...

My heart is seriously broken for you, my sweet friend ...

This is one song from Kinky's tribute and it is precious to me.

I want to dedicate it to Manni too, he was such a wonderful "larger than life"character and you two were the best team ever.

No need to say you did all you could, you stood by him, you rolled your sleeves and never stopped trying to find ways of fighting this despicable disease right until you could no longer do it.

You know you did.

We all know you did.

It is monstruously sad to hear you had to release him.

Even if you knew this day would come I am sure it still felt so, so unfair ...

Snow came down for him as he got his silver wings and all of our Angels were there to welcome him, first in line my goofy Eurydice, who always brought so much light around her.

My heart is with yours, now and forever heart

Manni is happy now, pain free, on four legs and trying to boss everybody around, flying deliriously happy from cloud to cloud.

You can be sure (even if you don't believe me) he is with you, that's exactly where he is.

He will come back even in your dreams, sweet Tina. 

Sending you a huge hug, my love, a huge, huge hug heartheartheart

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

Many members talk about "signs" from the beloved Tripawds they have had to let go – the first (and last) snow, pennies, paw prints, visiting birds...

On Sunday December 10, at about the time Manni earned his wings, before any of us knew, Team Tripawds was doing wash at the laundromat where we are currently staying. RVers always tend to leave magazines behind for others to read. This is the first time in ten years of traveling we ever found something like this:

We open the pages to find a photo of a child riding a large dog statue, and the only name we recognize is Tina Turner.

Last night, Wyatt woke us up at Midnight, whining to go out. Once out, he didn't need to go. Then we hear a loud screech from up in the tree. A large owl swooped down and flew by...something else we have never seen in these parts.

There are no coincidences. Tina and Manni have clearly touched so many people around the world, his spirit shall live on forever here.

Peace. heart

Für immer in unseren Inneren.*

Danke, dass Sie Teil der Tripawds-Familie sind.

*Hopefully we didn't just insult anyone's mother...

oh wow o wow.  Those are some amazing signs.   Jim you did an awesome job of Manni's banner.  It brought tears to my eyes. 

Tina I am thinking of you.  I know how hard this is for you and missing your boy.  Lots of love.

I am not really here yet so just pretend you never saw this... I have so many people to reply to but I can't just yet. Have patience with me for a little while please, I am trying to find my way around by touch right now. It's just too dark here at the moment.

However, Jim, thank you for this post. Thank you for the beautiful banner. It's one of those things, you know, when you're on here when your dog is still there you see those banners and think "I never want to see my dog's picture here". And then it happens and it is absolutely devastating but at the same time you're so glad that the dog has another place where he's remembered besides in your own heart. 

Holly knows this apparently, but I am probably the last person to recognize any signs so if you come across any whatsoever, please keep on letting me know.

Jim and Rene: I am rather glad that you didn't happen upon a German porn magazine there. I kind of imagine that would be Manni's kind of humor... or maybe that's mine, who knows.

Oh, and my mom's not that easily offended...

PS we don't have Cardinals here, and I have wondered before about how that would work here, but we do have owls. I shall look for them. Kind of spooky if you're a Twin Peaks aficionado though...

DITTO tears here too!

Tina no explanation needed! Take all the time you need PLEASE! It’s going to be dark for awhile and you will find a flicker then a candle & then the light will come! In time! You being on right now means your stronger then your realize!!!! KNOW THAT!

Holly knows Tina might need some help in seeing some things yes😉 Obviously Jim knows this too and you bet ya we will all show you the signs that Manni brings! One day Tina you will recognize a sign too!! Manni will see to that! He might have other things in mind to show you he is ok and making his presence! Not all show the same signs!! 

Für immer in unseren Inneren
❤️

So, when Murphy's banner was made, the girls all saw it and all told me how beautiful it was.  But it was probably about 2 weeks before I saw it.  I kept coming here, and I would click on forum topic after topic after topic, hoping to see his smiling face ...I saw everyone else, but not Murphy!  And then, there he was, and I just cried.

Jim, those are all amazing signs!  I'm usually oblivious to signs, too.  Although awhile back I did see a cardinal just hanging out on my back deck, right outside my kitchen window.
