Teddy
« on: October 11, 2013, 09:32:03 am »
It is with a heavy heart that I share that Teddy, our wonderful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, crossed the Rainbow Bridge this morning.   He entered our lives as a puppy, a present for DSís twelfth birthday, and brightened our lives for fourteen years.

He was diagnosed with lymphoma in early September, and yesterday he quietly let us know that he had had enough and it was time to let him go.  So we took that last trip to the vet this morning.

We know he is in good hands now, and is happily chomping dog treats from the pot at the end of the rainbow.

From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!

Aw.  I'm sorry for your family's loss.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

St. Francis hold him!   I'm sure he's chasing Zane now.  (At Rainbow Bridge, dogs still chase cats, but both know it is just for fun; Zane may well be chasing him, as they were probably about the same size!)

Aw, I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing a beloved pet is always so sad. But, at least he had a good life, and is much happier now. May you meet again someday!

Oh Jerusha this is sad news.
Family pets are just good family, better then kids in many ways. I  remember Teddy's photo. Oh, how I love Cavaliers. I will take a moment out tonight to send my thoughts your way. And yes if Zane and Teddy have found each other, then I see them roughhousing; rolling on their backs and batten at each other with friendship. It is the Cavalier way.

Yes, they would have been about the same size, as Teddy was on the large size for a Cavalier.  As a puppy/young dog, he had a stuffed canvas "cat" he would chase endlessly until one of us was exhausted - and that was usually me!

Thank you all for your kind thoughts.  Sharing this little memorial of Teddy was very comforting.

How did he react to real cats?

He never met one.  My father is seriously allergic to cats, so I've never had one.  My youngest son has informed me he is also allergic to cats (but not as bad) so I'm not to have one.  Which is a bit of a shame, since I've always fancied a Devon Rex.

I'm sorry to hear that.  Cats are such wonderful creatures. 

I don't thing Zane ever met a dog face-to-face either.
