Farewell, Cyndr
« on: June 23, 2018, 10:08:38 am »
Cyndr, our 16 year old whippet, decided to make her own way across the Rainbow Bridge.  On Tuesday, she escaped from the house when no one was looking as someone came to pick up an old wall unit we had sold.  Although we were out looking every day, she was not found until yesterday evening.  She had passed, probably earlier that day.

In spite of all of her health issues, she lived a long and comfortable life.  She is napping now in eternal sunlight curled up next to Scorch.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!

So sorry. She chose her own way but no easier for you.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

I'm sorry for your loss, and I hope Cyndr and Scorch have found a lovely sun-puddle in which to relax and reunite.
"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.)

The love of a good Pup will be dearly missed. :'(  Sorry for your loss, Jerusha. Cyndr and Scortch will be curled up in the clouds enjoying the rays of sunlight poking through.
