Oh noooo. You mean he got his wings? I’m so so sorry! 

Yes, when you share a bond with a special dog, you don’t need words to tell you when it’s time to help set their spirit free. I’m really sorry that sweet Mogul needed to shed his earth clothes, you have my deepest condolences. 

If you feel up to it, please share more about him in Coping with Loss so that we can celebrate the life of your adorable, unforgettable boy.

Lots and lots of love & condolences are coming your way.

I am so sorry to hear about Mogul.  

What a wonderful past year he had!  The camping trips, and the day I know he liked most was celebrating your birthday.  You definitely gave him a quality life! As Jerry said, when we have a connection with are beloved pets, we don’t need words, we just know.

I hope you take comfort in knowing that Mogul’s pain has ended, and he is now on the bridge running free, and whole again.  And he will be looking after you from the bridge.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you both……

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

We know how mich your heart aches…and ours ache with you.  We absolutely  adored that sweet adventurer  loving, Nature loving dog.  We went from a glorious celebration a week or so ago, and now read Mogul had to head to the Bridge.. 

His love for you, and yours for him, is what made his extended  bo us ti e filled with more fun and more joy than most dogs ever get to experienc.  And you loved him enough to release him from his failing earth clothesqhen he needed to be free and whole again.

Several of our Tripawd Heroes headed to the Bridge a few years ago in close proximity.   So ehow I think it gave us all a little3 bit of comfort knowing that, as they shared their Tripawd earth joir ey together, they barked and howled with tails waggy non stop as they headed to the Bridge together.  We called that group “April’s Angel’s”.  They, along with all the Bridge  occupants were ther to celebrate  Mogul back home.

Please know how much Mogul’s journey will continue to inspire and motivate  others to know how happy a tree legger can be!!  Mogul’s enthusiasm for life, along with your ability to live in the NOW and make every moment  count will always inspire  us to emulate  your example.

Surrounding  you with Moguls happy smile

PS. And we do want to say the gift of Mogul being with you for your birthday was priceless.💖

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!
