"God gave us our memories so that we might have Roses in December." a quote by J.M. Barrie. May the memories of your blessed furangel Basil, the ones that can't help but bring a smile to your face and a chuckle to your heart as you remember how your baby’s paw prints touched your life, be the ones that surround you this Holiday Season. My prayer for all of us this Christmas season, is that each of our babies wrap up a special little sign for each one of us back here, and send it to us during this blessed season. May you catch a glimpse of your special sign, just when your heart needs it the most....And may each love-filled memory you have of your fur-angel bring to your heart the very warmth and sunshine of the Rainbow itself. That's just one "gift" your dear fur-angel would want for you this year...Best wishes for you and your family this Holiday Season, Karen (Dusty, DJ & Patches mom)

It's so hard to let them go, but you're right we have to put aside our feelings and do what's best for them. God bless you for taking in one who was abused and showing them that there are people who are loving and caring. I hope the memories you have of your time together help to ease the pain of your loss.

Dear Basil.....Welcome to Rainbow Bridge. This is where you can now play and purr and make new friends. Thet will show you around, take you to the warm spots where you can soak in the sun and they will teach you how to send headbumps across the bridge to David so that he may know that you are lovingly waiting for him and are with him at all times.....never separated.... Dear David....The loss of our animal friends are far too great and the gried too great to be readily overcome...I pray that you have the courage to see through the difficult time and experience that in absolute reality, there is no separation...for our animal friends continue to be with us and guide us in their own ways...

Oh what a beautiful baby you had. I am sure that Bluey and Basil are best buddies now! It's been tough to deal with, but I know that he is in a wonderful place with lots of new friends and he knows that we loved him VERY VERY much! I am sure Bluey and Basil are looking down on us with much appreciation for taking them into our homes and loving them as much as we did!

Resigning to make my message complete. My deepest sympathies to you and your family on your loss. I do know what it is like to lose a loved one, whether Human or one of our special, furry babies. Having lost quite a few of my own and doing dog rescue, it is never easy. From my house of 6 furr babies, to yours, we wish you the best. If you ever need to write please do so. I will be there for you. They never leave us, we just don't see them any more. Their spirit lives on.

David, so sorry for your loss. Saying goodbye is never easy.....those little furry companions definitely steal our hearts and souls. They are so precious and are truly one of God's greatest gifts. Take comfort in that their love for us goes on as our love for them does for eternity. I am sure that the memories of this precious member will be with you always. We also lost our adorable little pug, Nikki Mae, who was the light of our lives for more than 14 wonderful years. We are sure that beautiful Basil and Nikki Mae have become good friends and are now having so much fun playing and running again. Please visit our Nikki Mae at:

Dear David & Penny, what a wonderful blessing that Basil was with you for many years. My Inky was born in the same year as Basil and went to the rainbow meadow earlier this year. I know the heartbreak of losing a precious little soulmate. We must remember that our babies have gone to a place where they are young and well again. They know that they will be reunited with their earthly families at the bridge someday. To us, it will seem like an eternity until we see them again, but to them, it's the blink of an eye and the flip of a precious tail. May wonderful memories bring healing to your hearts and may God bless you always with comfort and peace. I understand and care. Jane

David, Being in rescue it always warms my heart to hear a story like Basil's , one that started rough but ended with all the love that each of these beautiful creatures deserve. May you find comfort in the memories you shared on this side enough to keep you til the time comes when you are reunited once again.

Hello David, I am so sorry for the lost of your beautiful Basil. King Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes: "To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven…a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance…" The Zohar, the classic work of Kabbalah, describes the inner psyche of man as "crying being on one side of the heart and laughing on the other side of the heart." Yet, there is an even deeper understanding, we will learn to be joyous and broken hearted at the same time. Our fur babies where so beautiful and a gift of true joy & love, how can we not be happy when we reflect on there memory and begin to celebrate there life. Please take comfort in knowing that one day we will be together again with our beautiful companions; I lost my Zander in July 2008 & have attached his link if you care to visit. With Love & Sympathy Diane.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Basil. Please find comfort in knowing that Basil is now at Rainbows Bridge and making lots of friends. Saying goodbye is never easy. I also lost my precious cat Spooky July 30th 2001 after 16 wonderful years with her. I am sure that Basil and Spooky have become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

Basil - You are a most beautiful one and you did leave your family many happy memories! Send your family some signs, kisses from the Rainbow to let them know that you are safe, happy, healthy and will have many friends. Let Penny and David know that God has appointed you to be their guardian, protector to watch over them until they are called to the Bridge to join you one day. I will tell my Brande to find you and play with you. To David - I send my heartfelt sympathy to you over the loss of Basil. I too lost my soulmate not long ago, see Brande at - We know that God has promised we will be with our babies again one day. I leave this quote with you, "heaven is the only place where all the dogs and cats you have ever loved will come running to meet you." Author Unknown

Basil, what a purrfectly handsome boy you are! Please go to the Bridge and purr your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the hearts of your mummy and daddy who miss you so much, and they will send their love right back to you on angels' wings. Dave and Penny, your world has lost a very special furpurrson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed home a very special soul. Basil, your Beautiful Special Boy, is now your very own angel, watching over and for you, just as Katy and BG are watching over us, until you meet again and cross the Bridge together. May his sweet love continually nuzzle your hearts until then. Blessings and peace, Clare and Martha....Please visit our Katy at

Hello, handsome Basil, welcome to the meadow by Rainbow Bridge. Mummy and Daddy love and miss you so...they made you a beautiful place and wrote loving words about you. We asked our Pressy to welcome you and be a playmate to chase sunbeams and rainbows and share kitty love headbumps. She'll show you wonders of Paradise meadow and teach you to send love signs on the wind to Mummy and Daddy so they hear your sweet meows and purrs and feel a soft touch of your kitty paw in gentle breezes. You're now a guardian star shining brightly until they come to cross the Bridge together for all time. We ask they not be so sad but remember you're curled up beside your pawprints in their hearts forever. Play meadow games with other furangels but stop often to smile at Mummy and Daddy so they feel the warmth of your love surround them and know you miss them too and are with them. Soar among clouds on silvery new angel wings to watch over Mummy and Daddy always, beloved Special Boy. Pressy's Grandpa
