A True Companion


Disclaimer: This is a very personal post. If you’re here to see pictures of beautiful moments between beautiful people, I encourage you to keep on to other posts. Also, this posts has taken me a few days to write so bear with me.

There’s no other way to put it. My heart is completely broken. For those of you who visit often and know how much my dogs mean to me, you’ll understand where I’m coming from, more so if you have a furry friend that takes up a special place in your heart as well.

Last week, I lost my sweet Tiffany suddenly. Even though it’s been a few days since she left us, it’s still hard to believe it and I miss her dearly. She was much more than a dog to me. She was my companion.

For 13 years she followed me wherever I went and I took her with me through many of my life’s events – she’d been with me longer than Chris! She was my first dog and turned my heart completely over for sure. No matter how I felt or my attitude, she just wanted to be with me. I’d walk in the door and she was there. She would wonder the house and look for me until she found me and then begged to join me on the couch. For 13 years, she was there.

I truly think God places animals, like Tiffany, on earth to help us, heal us and are in their own ways, special gifts.

Words can’t describe how much I miss her.



Oh my! I had no idea. I am so sorry to hear this. Animals are always a part of the family and pretty much like your child. I pray that God helps you get through this time and just know, she will always be with you!

OH my goodness – that made me tear up. Thank you for your sweet words, Tricia!

Ohhhh, Tara. I am so sorry for your loss. Pets are family and I agree, Tiffany was a special gift. Thinking of you during this difficult time.

“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….”
