Annie has Crossed Over

Annie was taken to the V-E-T yesterday because she wasn't doing well at all and has crossed over to The Bridge. We are very sad to see her go, but we know it was time.

This is a picture of one of Annie's favorite places. She luffed to help Paw with his computer stuff, and would lie on his desk and ask for scritches and brushes while he was working. There was always a pile of fur underneath his desk from Annie's visits.

Dear Maw and Pa
Even though I knew this day was coming I still can't help but feel such deep sadness that Annie has gone to the Bridge. I hope she got to see my small tribute to her on Sunday. My heart is aching and I know that yours are as well. Run and play now Annie your youth and health has now been restored. We will all miss you on this earthly plane but we will not mourn for we know we will be reunited and until then we will always remember and know that in the quiet of the shadow you will always be there. Many soft head bumps to your Maw and Pa.
Love

Rose and the Royals said...

Annie has finally gotten away from this Earthly pain and sadness, and is at Peace, in a place warm with sunshine and lots of butterflies to chase and furchildren that have gone before us all to play with.

Knowing it was time and doing what you needed to do for Annie, that last selfless act of relieving her of her pain was the bravest, kindest thing you could have done, so be at ease with yourselves. You did right by your sweetheart, and she will be keeping an eye out for you now, and for the future.

Many hugs and purrs,

Rose and the Royals

Purrs and headbonks galore for all of you. We're so sorry that Annie had to leave. We still grieve losing our brother Tyler. We know that he was there to welcome your Annie because we had sked him to be keeping a look out for her. He was a wonderful welcomer to our newbies so he would have curled up around her comforting her with grooming her furs in place. Annie's fine now, it's you who you need to take care of now. Hugs from Mom. Ty's Bro's and sisters
