Susan: Believe me I know how difficult this is. Hero deserved more, but it was not to be for him. His last week on
this earth, he was safe, warm, had somewhere soft to sleep, fresh food
and water and most importantly, no one trying to hurt him. It may have been the best week of his life.
Run free Hero, with no fear, abuse or discomfort! I know my foster,
Gunnar, will be there to greet you at the Rainbow Bridge and let you
know there is no fear or abuse anymore.
Oh Susan, thank you for being there for Hero. I know how
difficult that was for you and Danielle as I've been there too.
My babies Janna and Cammie sat right in front of me when I
started to cry so I had to tell them all about Hero.
God speed little Hero! I hope Elfie and Dougall welcomed you
and told you how much you are loved.
Susan: Though my tears I see an angel holding little Hero as he passes from the pain into joy. Bless you and CP for giving this little boy a week of love and caring, a warm bed and soft voices. He so deserved more.
My heart goes out to you Susan, how difficult this must have been
for you. This little dog came so close to a life of love. My
candle is lit here in NJ for our Hero.
This is the reason for the words on the Col. Potter's Kid page - the
memorial pages for our Foster Dogs who never make it to their forever
homes but are always remembered in our hearts. I'm not sure who wrote
these words but they are the truth.
Hugs to you.
Susan: Setting a tortured spirit free is one of the most selfless things I can
think of to do. It really requires setting aside all the "what ifs"
that run through your mind, telling yourself that some heartache on
your part is nothing compared to the agony dogs like Hero go through
every second ... I don't think many of us can even imagine that kind of
So, while a tough job, you have given Hero the kindest gift anyone
could ... a few moments of peace before going over the Bridge.
