Teresa, as you know, I haven't quite been able to post here yet. Just couldn't get my stuff together. Then this morning it felt right. I came on and started to just let the words flow.

And then I started reading your beautiful, beautiful, wise words so full of grace and love.

Yeah, tears flowing again......not really "sad" tears, and not "happy" tears.....just tears of love for you and Eurydice.

Sooooo......yet again.....I'll be back later!! Yep.....back later!! 🙂

I do want to say two quick thngs! PLEASE, we KNOW you appreciate the love and support, so don't feel like you need to respond to each post. We know you so well Teresa!! We know you want to and we all kknow your grateful heart. No, no words are needed, we know your generous giving Spirit. We ALL want you to spend time right now enjoying all the different ways Eurydice and Kinky are connecting with you!! My goodness, to try and respond to all....that could take you years because the outpouring of love is so massive and never-ending! Use this time to xhare more adventures, post more photos. Use this time to continue to move through the sadness and into the bliss of the magical...MAGICAL...life you and Eurydice xhared!! That makes us all happy knowing that's where your mind will take you.

AND, I also want to say that the expression of love that everyone has shown here is soooooo heartwarming.......soooo beautiful!! I think I could say DITTO to every single word everyone has written as they have expressed what you and Eurydice mean to us with xuch eloquence.

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Sally, Sally, you are an angel heart

I so so so appreciated you PMing me and totally understood you needed time to come to terms with what happened. 

You always find the right words, the kindest words, girl, when I read your PMs I always felt you were here with me and with Eurydice ... just by our sides holding my hand and her paw heart

As for not replying to all ...

I do want to respond to everybody here, the tripawds family knew Eurydice and they were all so important to us ...

We shared our journey, some in the beginning, during our path or at the end ...

Eurydice's spirit is still with all of us, right here.

Just like your Happy Hannah ... what a lovely name for such a lovely, lovely dog ...

It doesn't matter how long it will take me (and as you say I may never be able to finish) I will address all of you because you loved Miss Cow so much, as much as me.

One does not find that kind of love in the "real world" it takes a formidable task to bring the best out of us, poor humans ... but once we've been there we are changed forever ... and our dogs and cats have taught us what life is really about heart

I adore Sally, I really do heart

Sending you much love and zillion cuddles to Myrtle and Frankie and woof woofs from both our XL girls in the sky

Sweet Renee heart

I know ... it was a huge shock even if you and me knew it would happen in the near future ...

Caroline, the angel vet, told me a week earlier or so "you know, she is not eternal ..." and her voice was as serene as a poppy softly blowing in the breeze ...

It could not have been prevented and I was blessed to be able to make a clean decision, one I was able to make just before she would suffer and pass away in horrendous circumstances.

I was totally unaware of the other huge losses happening in our community ...

Murphy, Fionn, Murphy the Great Dane, Ginger, Bruno ...

I suppose they all conjured up a way to meet up in the sky and knowing the characters I bet there's been PAWTY PAWTY PAWTY non stop ...

I can picture Eurydice and Kinky and Murphy the Great Dane flying like lunatics followed by all the others !

And they are all barking the happiest bark and their eyes are sparkling with sheer pleasure and joy !

This is what I want to picture in my heart, a happy Eurydice now flying free with all our other babies.

They are all forever free heart

Sending you all my love and trillion cuddles to Wyatt and wooooooofs from Eurydice and Jerry who finally met in spiritheart

Sweet Amy heart

Your words went straight into my heart heart

Thank you SOOOOOOO much for your huge appreciation and love for Missy Cow I feel exactly the same for Izzy, you are such a great, loving, fun Mom to your gorgeous, trendy girl way-cool

And we are sisters, aren't we?

Crazy sisters ...

Who else would sport 17 and 20 odd stitches (if I remember correctly) on their faces ?

How you managed to break a toe and slice your chin but still held onto Izzy whilst catapulting yourself all over the stairs, beats me ...

As for me, getting 17 stitches going up the stairs was also original ...

I know the joie de vivre I shared with Eurydice is the same you share with Izzy minus the clothes ...

Eurydice is definitely not gone ... she is right here.

She will be with you when you revisit her past adventures, you may even be able to hear a huge woooo-ooo-oooof at times ...

And you will know it's our girl heart

Sending you much love and zillion cuddles to Miss Izzy heart

Donna, sweet Donna heart

My heart stopped when I read your post and realised our mini goofy, happy, playful, lovely Murphy had departed on his lovely journey the same day ...

But you are so right, Donna.

Those two monkeys had a plan.

And they flew together, paw in paw right through the sky, eyes gleaming with joy and cheekiness superstar

I am sure they would have been the best of friends here on this earth and they are now the best of friends in Paradise heart

I so wish I could hug you ... not to cry with you but instead to celebrate their lives, laugh with their stories, remember how happy they were, share their lovely memories ...

We do have thousands of lovely memories, don't we, Donna? 

They made sure they would leave but wonderful memories with us, their loving Moms heart

Sending you all my love and plenty of wooooof wooooofs from Missy Cow and Murphy heart

Darling Michelle heart

Thank you so much for your kind, comforting words and for having been there during our journey.

It is not easy to loose our babies, that's for sure but as I mentioned before I feel really at peace.

I am sure Eurydice and Kinky have their paws all over thiswinker

I suffered so indescribably horrendously for so so so long when Kinky passed, cried my eyes out for months non end feeling a permanent dagger cutting my heart into millions of pieces from the moment I'd wake up till the moment I (sort of) went to sleep, every single day.

This time was different.

Not that I did not love Eurydice exactly as much as I loved Kinky.

But I am sure as sure can be, Kinky and Eurydice decided to prevent that from happening again.

Every time a really sad thought comes to my head bling! it gets catapulted to the stratosphere and is replaced by a wonderful memory.

All this happens "automatically" ...

At night and in the morning I cuddle with Pedro the Penguin and Woody the woodpecker and my girl is back with me, smiling that wonderful smile of hers ... smiling with her beautiful, big, loving eyes heart

I was blessed to have had the chance of a clear decision and I am blessed both of my girls are making sure I don't suffer but instead am able to be close to them, my heart and their hearts together, really together heart

Sending you much love and so many happy barks from Eurydice, Kinky and Sassy heart

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.

Sweet Nancy heart

What a shock that was for me to realise Fionn had departed too ...

But, on reflection, I bet he couldn't wait and miss the opportunity of getting to the Bridge escorted by Missy Cow superstar

Plus Murphy the Great Dane, mini Murphy, Ginger and Bruno all of them ready to rock n'roll through the skies!

Fionn is happy, Nancy, he is really, really happy with all his friends flying away on four legs 

Please try not to suffer, try to move the sadness that fills your heart away, when you think of Fionn try and picture him as happy as the happiest dog ever flapping his wings and smiling at youheart and me heart

Fionn was so, so loved when he was with you and I am so glad Eurydice's happy travels inspired you as they did.

You were meant to be his Mom and even if the time was very, very short from the day you adopted him to the day he had to leave you, I am sure every single day was a special day for you both. 

You can bet your life he'll be waiting for you.

I suspect the entire tripawds family will meet up in the skies with all of our babies one day!

Now THAT will be the best PAWTY in all of eternity !

Sending you all my love, sweetie and happy barks from Eurydice, Kinky and Fionnheart

Darling Otis's Mom heart

I am ashamed I cannot remember your name ... but I know your heart, sweetie.

You are such a lovely, lovely Mom to our Otis, reading your post brought tears to my eyes.

Happy tears.

Me and Eurydice are truly honoured you found our travel logs inspiring ...

You took your decision to go ahead with amputation thanks to my sweet girl !

I am so, so honoured ...

I am sure Eurydice is smiling at us right now and winking at Otis winker 

She is saying "hey kiddo, you'll have a looooong happy life, every day is Otis day at your Mom's house!" 

Eurydice will continue inspiring others, I too believe.

She was so goofy, so happy, so full of energy and joy and luckily we managed to capture her joie de vivre forever through tripawds.

She was such a pleasure to have by my side, very second of every day heart

Sending you all my love and zillion cuddles to Otis heart

YES! This is what we call the "Remember when?" game. When the grief hits, retrain your mind to think of a happier time. The sum of our pet's lives cannot be measured in the last days when the cancer got to be too much. Their lives are so much more than that blip in time, and there are many good times to remember to help us heal. It's a hard thing to get your mind trained to do, but it's possible.

Eurydice is so proud of you Teresa! xoxo

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Thank you Renee heart

In fact it is Eurydice who has her paws all over this superstar

I wouldn't be able to achieve this state of mind on my own if she did not have her three booties on and every time she sees Mommy is having a sad thought ... PAFT ... and ... GOOOOOOOOAL into the stratosphere !

She is better than Ronaldo, the football player, she truly deserves the gold boot and the title for champion of the world for scoring the biggest number of goals ever recorded ...

Darling Tracy heart

Yes, it was a lovely last present from Eurydice to Pitou.

The osteopath and his wife collected him four days ago and had all sorts of tests done to access his health. 

It turns out he has a heart condition and will need meds for life, his lungs are not perfect, there's a malformation on his trachea, arthrosis on his hip, cataracts and he is deaf ...

I never noticed he was deaf, whenever I called him he would excitedly come to meet me but then again I suppose he must have seen me every time...

So, Eurydice got it absolutely right.

He needs a vet/osteopath as his loving Daddy.

And that's what Miss Cow got him winker

Darling Clyde's Mom heart

So sorry I cannot remember your name ...

Thank you so much for your kind words, it is heart warming to read how much you enjoyed her travels and how you appreciate her strength and energy.

She was a good girl, my wonderful baby and our Ambassador of Love.

She truly was.

Nobody could be indifferent to her presence, her energy was so pawsitive and she was always ready and excited to meet new two, three or four legged friends.

Her story is not yet finished ...

You will witness her wonderful energy again before I "officially" close this thread. 

She does live in my heart and in the hearts of all who loved her as much as I did.

You are one of those lovely people who share her with me and for that I am glad.

Sending you all my love and zillion cuddles to Clyde heart

Oh Teresa, I just love you. Thank you so much for your kindness.

I believe that Izzy has heard Eurydice's wooooo-oooo-oooof calling to us.

It may seem strange, but it makes me feel better to know that when my sweet girl's time with me comes to an end, she will have friends waiting for her on the other side of the bridge, including your beautiful, goofy girl. They can reminisce together about our gracefulness on staircases big-grin 

I know it's a fool's game, but I am holding out hope that Izzy will slip away one night in her sleep and spare me the final heartbreak of having to set her free. Of course, I will do what I must - as your Angel vet, Caroline, so accurately advised, she is not eternal - but a girl can dream, right?

And speaking of dreams, I hope Miss Cow visits me there so I can finally meet her and deliver and the cuddles I've longed to give. Who knows, perhaps she will visit one night and give Izzy her wings. What a lovely welcome for my girl. heart

Thank you again for your grace and love. You are a treasure, as is Eurydice!

Love to you,

Amy & Izzy 

Momma to the world's most beautiful American Bulldog, Izzy!! Lost her front leg to OSA 9/18/15. Diagnosed w MCT in June 2016. Celebrated her 1 year ampuversary with knee surgery on 9/18/16! MCT recurrence in Dec 2016. Happy & hungry til nearly 14, earning her wings on 7/31/17.

Amu, when Izzy's earthly mission is complete she will let you know. And yes, just like Eurydice and all our beloved Angels at the Bridge, they will carry out other missions assigned to them that only the highest of Enlightened Souls are entrusted to do.heartheart Without question, the Rainbow Bridge selects THE most advanced Souls to welcome back home so their journey of Enlightenment can continue. Not their Enlightenment, ours! They have already been embraced by a Divinity of Light and Love and Wisdom that we could never accomplish in our earth clothes.

Yes, June is quite the "Jubilant June" up at the Bridge this month as it welocomes home one Advanced Soul after another! 🙂

Much love to all
