Suzi a year on

Saying goodbye to our Schnauzers is the hardest part. Share your memories here as we bid farewell to our beloved friends. They've crossed the bridge and returned to the meadow in full health and free of injuries. Running free. We won't forget.

Suzi a year on

Post by schnauzer » 13 Apr 2018, 11:37

A year ago today we lost our Suzi, when she went for surgery & didn't make it. Suzi there is not a day goes past that I don't think about you, you were so precious and a very special girl in our life. You made us laugh every day & gave us so much love.

Hi, Mum
Now that I’ve been across The Rainbow Bridge for a few weeks, they said I should write a letter home. Sorry, mum, but I’m so busy ‘across the bridge’ that I haven’t thought of home much. They said it’s okay and that you would understand. I hope you do. (I think you will.)
Remember that day when you took me to the Vet hospital to see the doggy doctor to see if he could make me better. when I wasn’t feeling very well and you were crying? I don’t remember much, but I do remember seeing and hearing you and feeling your touches and hugs…I remember hearing “I love you” and I want to make you better. So you had to leave me that day for my operation & Doggy Doctor say he would phone you after my operation. I walked away and saw you crying. I went for a little sleep that day and didn’t wake up, but Mum I didn’t suffer. They couldn’t make me better and had to let me “Go through”. I didn’t know what they meant, so I turned around and walked through the fog that was in front of me. I saw the biggest bridge I’ve ever seen! And so many friends on the other side of it! They were all playing with toys and balls! You were right to tell me to go there!
My feet kept moving forward, but my heart kept pulling me back. Your touches became lighter and lighter and I wanted to come back and nudge your hands for more love, but I was overcome by this feeling of curiosity for the happy place over the bridge! My feet started moving on their own, like a gentle breeze was moving them forward for me! I can’t explain it, but I had no doubt that it was the right thing to do!
So, I walked across that big, huge bridge by myself! I looked for you, because you we’re always by my side, walking with me, but this was different. I didn’t have a collar around my neck or a leash connecting me to you ~ I was ‘free’! Even though you weren’t there with me, I never felt alone! I actually felt like I had a huge cape of love wrapped around my body and the more I walked, the easier it was to breathe! So, I kept walking! And I would feel more warmth in the big hug, so I kept on walking! I eventually made it over the big bridge – I did it by myself, mum!
When I got here, all of my new friends greeted me and helped me walk off the bridge ~ it was so cool! They gave me a pair of wings and said that I was now a Guardian Angel!
What I’ve learned over these past few weeks has been amazing and nothing like I’ve seen before! We’re all the same up here ~ we all have wings and we all have Forever People to watch over ~ that’s YOU, mum! You’re my Forever Person and I’m your Forever Dog! We had such a great life together and I do miss you a LOT, but please know that I am so happy in my new home across The Bridge!
Ive sent you another Earth Angel I believe his name is Gino so you won’t be alone. Give him your whole heart, like you gave it to me. I’ll check in every so often to make sure he treasures your love ~ I always did! When you miss me, think of a rainbow and know I’m on the other side of it, waiting to walk with you again. I’ll always be in your heart. I love you, mum! Time for me to go play…Miss you lots

Yes Suzi I do now have Gino who you sent along & he is easing my pain but we still miss you as it hurt so much when you left us x

Christine, my eyes are stinging. One year passed already - thank goodness for little Gino. Celebrate Gino and your time with Suzi, it hurts so much because you loved her so much..
