    AZ, I'm so sorry for your pain. Summer was meant to spend her life with you, and she will always be with you in spirit. You may even be aware of signs of her. Rainbow Bridge is very close to what happens except that we never really part.

    Shay, did someone forget to tell you that cats are nocturnal? LOL

    AZ, sorry about your little girl. I wish our pets could age at the same pace as we do.

    It's my hope that Summer is having this same kind of fun, while she awaits AZ and her hubby.

    AzChristian, That is the sweetest tribute I have ever read. I know it was difficult for you to write. Thank you for sharing. You and Mr. AZ are in my thoughts and prayers.

    AZ, thanks for sharing your Summer story with us. It is painful to lose such a precious part of the family. My thoughts are with you.

    AZChristian - I completely understand what you are going through. Your post was so beautiful and it made me feel so close to you and Summer. Thanks so much for sharing and I'm so sorry for your loss. It will take awhile to stop crying - at least for me it did - but it will get easier to talk about her to others and hopefully you will be able to open your heart to another dog - maybe a yorkie in rescue - to give some love and a happy home to another dog. Take care. <3

    Re: For animal lovers

    We went to Things Remembered today and bought a pretty heart-shaped locket. We put a picture of Summer on one side, and a little bit of her hair in the other side. Now her "heart" can always be close to mine. I am so blessed to have a husband who has been my rock through all of this. I know that time will help, but right now I feel like the Scarecrow in "The Wizard of Oz" when he said, "Now I know I have a heart, because it's breaking."

    My sincere thanks to all of you for your kind words and prayers. I'm just sorry you didn't get to meet her. You'd have all loved her, too.

    AZ, I think you sent a piece of her that we can all love, right along side you!

    AZ, I'm so very sorry for your loss. Summer was beautiful. I feel your pain. Please take comfort in the fact that Summer had a beautiful life, one that dogs dream of having.
    I know how hard it is, even though her pain is gone, yours is just starting and I'm so very sorry for that.

    I wholeheartedly believe in The Rainbow Bridge. I had a talk with my Harley and told him to watch out for Summer until you meet her on that bridge.

    I'm sending you huge hugs.
    Take care and allow yourself to grieve as much as you need to.
    We're all here for you.
