Goodbye, Cassie; we honour your memory
“Dogs die. But dogs live, too. They live brave, beautiful lives. They protect their families. And love us. And make our lives a little brighter. And they don’t waste time being afraid of tomorrow.”
– Dan Gemeinhart
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
Today we lost our beautiful girl. 25th May 2022
Cassie we love you and will hold you in our hearts always.
Cassie came into our life as a senior. We rehomed Cassie from a shelter. It was mothers day and I ran the mothers day fun run. The week before we lost our beautiful white boxer, Bonnie and who should pop up on Facebook dog shelter page – Cassie. My late husband was planning a mothers day breakfast and I asked if we could take a visit to the shelter first. Of course breakfast celebration was off the menu and Cassie was on her way to her forever home and to fill our hearts with so much joy.
Cassie had a severe skin problem and had been taken and returned so many times. Mama Gut Goddess – you are here to stay and we will get you off nasty medication, creams etc and stop the scratching and bring the red skin back to normal. Thanks to the wonderful gift of fermentation. It worked!!! Cassie loved her fresh, cooked broth base, turmeric, kefir and fermented food & kombucha baths.
