I learned yesterday that Trouble's dad crossed over the bridge on Saturday. He was 14 years old and had been fighting the effects of age for the last several weeks. Sharon, his owner, is heartbroken. Please keep her in your thoughts.
RIP sweet Gambit, you were a grand old man. Run free at Rainbow Bridge .
Shanna & Spirit Trouble ~ Trouble gained her wings 3/16/2011, a 27 1/2 month cancer survivor, tail wagging. RIP sweetheart, you are my heart and soul. Run free at Rainbow Bridge.

I'm so sorry to hear about Trouble's dad, Gambit... It is so sad to loose our babies, no matter how old they are... My thoughts and prayers are with your friend Sharon, during this sad time...
Angel Jake's Mom
Jake, 10yr old golden retriever (fractured his front right leg on 9/1, bone biopsy revealed osteosarcoma on 9/10, amputation on 9/17) and his family Marguerite, Jacques and Wolfie, 5yr old german shepherd and the newest addition to the family, Nala, a 7mth old Bengal mix kittie.

Trouble, we are so sorry about your Poppa. Like Marguerite said, losing a family member at any age is so hard, but what a lucky guy to live 14 long years. Wow.
We send our love and sympathy to you and your family.

Trouble, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your papa Gambit ' class='wp-smiley' /> He will be with all of your Tripawd buddies Trouble, that have crossed over and feeling young again, running at the Rainbow Bridge . Shanna, my heart goes out to your friend Sharon at the loss she must be feeling right now without her beloved pet beside her 🙁 I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers

It's never easy. Sorry to hear. But how wonderful she got 14 years!
(I hope we don't discriminate against 4 legged ones!?!??!)
