Thank you all for you wishing Brownie CONGRADULATIONS on his one year. My brain told me we would never get to this point , but my heart knew we would!

Hi Everybody!

Well I haven’t been feeling well. I have been coughing a lot and there has been some red stuff coming out of my mouth. So mom read me my love letter and told me a story. 

I am going to be taking an incredible journey to a magical place called “Rainbow Bridge “. Hemi is there waiting for me. He is one of my best buddies. I always wondered why we stopped playing together. Mom also said the grass is green for miles to roll in, and the water is clear and blue to swim in. Mom also told me about some tripawds that are also there but are whole again. I hope Jerry and Roane teach me to chase frogs. I have to ask Happy Hannah what deep poop taste like. I wonder if she has any to share? Then there is the stubbrand pug Maggie.  Mom said she might be more stubbrand then me. I bet sweet Mitchell and I will be great friends. Then there is the two strong Dobermans Ziggy and Nitro. I think we can get a good soccer team together. Then there is the very sweet and young Louie Bear and Cezar. I hope to  become their friends. There is so many more but I can’t remember all their names. But I am going to meet all of them and give them a big sniff. I will tell them their humans think of them everyday and how much they are loved. I will also let them know what good work all of you are doing to help tripawds everywhere!

I have been eating a lot of good things. I think mom has lost her mind! choc cake and ice cream. Chocolate and Steak. And all those junkey treats at the store that taste so good, but are so bad for me.

Well, that is about it. Just wanted to say good bye before my journey begins.

Love Always,

Brownie Bubba Bell

OMD!!! Tears running down my face at work! I’m so very sorry you have to leave your earthly self, and family dear Brownie….but your mom is right, you are headed to a beautiful place. Thank you for telling Nitro I love and miss him – I hope you will be great friends…..he’s a super fast runner so he will be a good addition to the soccer team.

May your transition be beautiful and peaceful….run free sweet boy!

Dear Beaufful Beloved Brownie❤    I am so touched by the letter your Mom wrote you and the way she told you all about the adventures that await you at The Rainbow Bridge .

Understand that I am a hooman and I’m  crying like a baby right no.  So just ignore that, okay?  I don’t  want to do that, but that’s what we hoomans do.

What I really want to do is celebrate one of the greatest  kick ass dogs this community has seen!

I want to celebrate  how you overcame every obstacle and how you have shown everyone that being “mature” was NOT a problem for tripawds!!

I want to celebrate  one of the most spectacular victories we have seen here by blowing statis sky high!

I want to celebrate a dog who has one of the best WOOF barks, especially  at 7:00, that will stay with us forever.  We will hear you in the wind as you continue to speak from the Bridge.

I want to celebrate  the love and bond, unbreakable bond, you and your Mom share.

I want to celebrate  all of the great videos we got to see of you…mostly centered around food!  And yes, at the Bridge chocolate  awaits by the bucket full! It’s always 7:00 o’clodk at the Bridge.

And I am excited for you as you RUN FREE,  fast and free, towards the Bridge!  And yes, all your dog friends who have been watching over you, or who shared some earth time with you, will ALL be there to greet you!  And yes, there will be a feast of deer poop sprinkled  over ice cream waiting for you from Happy Hannah!  Thank you for giving  her a shout out from me when you see her…and a shout out to all the others too!  That was very thoughtful of you.  But that’s  who you are, thoughtful and kind, just like your Mom.

Please know that we will be here to help your Mom in the upcoming days and weeks and months.  Yes, as a hooman, we will all cry together…but that’s  for us, not for you.  We KNOW you are free of your failing earth clothes and are getting younger and younger as you head to the Bridge.  We know you showed your Mom you were ready to be free.  I’m glad you let her know because, again, we are hoomans and we need to get that validation. 

Brownie, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for the privilege of being by your side, and your Mom’s side, on your earth journey💖   Your legacy of hope is rock solid here Beloved Brownie!  Your name and your story of victory  will be told over and over again to anyone starting this journey.

Okay Brownie Bubba Belle, until we all reunite at the Bridge, so long for now.  Oh, and be sure and send your Mum lots of signs you’re okay when you can.  I know you’ll be busy at first doing all the fun things with old and new friends.  

Nancy, this was none of the most heart touching ways of letting us know Brownie  is head to the Bridge.  As hard as it was to write, it was such an eloquent way to celebrate  his transition.

Surrounding  you with the love of all your Tripawd Family❤

Oh man Nancy!! I’m sitting here crying like a fool,  damn. 

Not even sure i have words right now but if i leave now i won’t be back till tomorrow. So here goes..

Nancy,  you are just a wonderful. pawsome mama… you are the best! I am so sorry this is happening. 

Brownie!! You sweet,  silly,  headstrong boy.  You know all of our angels by heart.  You have been mama”s bestest friend since she rescued you from that horrible man.  

I can see every part of Brownie’s sweet soul making friends with all of our Angels. He’ll be updating them on all the latest scoop and telling tales on us all. Look out everybody!

Nancy, we are all here for you.  You have given Brownie the life of a king,  and you are doing the right thing by him.  He will always hold your heart as you are the bestest of friends.  

Holding you tightly in my heart and in my thoughts.  You know where i am,  and you know how to get in touch.  

Much love, 

Jackie and Huck ❤❤❤❤❤

Hugs,

Woah. I’m struggling to find the right words through the tears. icon_cry Oh Brownie! You are such a funny, handsome, adorable boy with a heart of gold (or maybe chocolate?!) and a spirit so bright. I’m so sad that your earthly journey is winding down, but that’s me being selfish. If we could have you with us furever we would!

But all the kids at the Bridge need you more right now. There’s a party getting started and you are the guest of honor! You will all pronk and play and jump and leap like you were way back as a puppy! Imagine how good that will feel, to be free of the earth clothes that no longer serve a purpose. WOW! From here on out, you will be an eternal, weightless being who gets to eat as much as you want and on your spare time, patrol us humans from way up in the heavens, with all your buddies making sure we behave. And yes, Jerry will be there waiting for you! I know you will love him, he’s a friend to all, even the froggies.

It has been our honor to be part of your life my friend. Thank you for sharing it with us. And yes, please let your mamma know that we are here for her, always. It won’t be easy because she loves you something fierce. We are here for her to lean on.

There are candles lighting up the Tripawds Universe right now. Can you see the twinkles? Our hearts hurt, but we stand tall knowing that we were better off because you were part of our community. We love you forever Brownie.

Hey Brownie- be sure and let your mom know you are OK once you get there. Even though you are going to the coolest place ever and there will be soooo much to sniff she is going to miss seeing you everyday. 

And do look for Pug Maggie, she’s been at the Bridge a long time and knows all the Tripawds and can show you around.  Don’t expect soccer from her but she will know all the best sunny spots for naps.  And if you need ideas on how to let your mom know you are OK ask Mag- she is really good at sending signs.

You are an inspiration to all of us and will live on forever here and in your mom’s heart.
