It is with a heavy heart that I dedicate this page to our little girl. Our sweet little Domino passed away on Saturday, February 10, 2007. She suddenly went blind on February 4th and bravely spent the next week still able to find her food, water and litter box. On Friday, we knew something was going terribly wrong. She wouldn't eat or even get out of bed. We called our Vet and made an appointment to bring Domino in on Saturday morning to see what was wrong. Friday night, Domino laid on the floor next to the bed and we could hear she was having problems breathing. When we woke up on Saturday morning, she was the same. She had a heartbeat, although it was weak.|
I wrapped her in a bath towel and carried her to the car and held her in my arms on the way to the Vet. By the time we got there, her heart had stopped. Our little girl passed away peacefully resting close to my heart. Although she developed gingivitis early on and then was being treated for hyperthyroidism since November 2005 she lived her life to the fullest and we are grateful to have been a part of it. We got her when she was only 6 weeks old. She would have been 15 years old in May. Domino had many nicknames...when she gained her weight back after starting on her thyroid medication, we lovingly called her "Fats Domino". She also went by the name "Domi-nosey", since every time we would bring a bag or package into the house, she would have to get into it to see what was in there. Domino loved Christmas. Anytime we couldn't find her in the house, we knew right where to look...under the Christmas tree sleeping on the presents. Domino also loved boxes (as you can see from her photo). We took this picture when we were packing to move from Pennsylvania to Florida. She jumped into the box as if to say "Don't forget to take me"! I could write pages and pages of stories telling of all the joy Domino brought into our lives and to anyone that knew her.
The day after Domino started her journey to the Bridge, she sent us a beautiful rainbow right on the floor between the bedroom and bathroom. We knew that was her way of telling us her journey to the Bridge was complete.
Rest in peace our little lady and spend time with your sisters Cookie and Chinook now that you are all young and healthy again. Run and play and have all the tuna fish you want! Since your eyesight is now restored, enjoy all the beautiful sights at the Rainbow Bridge. Grandma will take care of all of you until we can once again be a family together. We love you and miss you, little girl. So do your sisters, Brandy & Misty. Please continue to send us the beautiful rainbows.....and know we think of you every day.
The love of a pet is unconditional...They ask for so little, but give so much in return.
Our Special Angel...
5/9/07--HAPPY BIRTHDAY, little girl. Today you would have been 15 years old. We left you some balloons, and a birthday cake . We hope you're having a big birthday party with Grandma, your sisters and all the new friends you met at the Rainbow Bridge.
"If tears could build a stairway,
We miss you and love you....always and forever.
12/24/07--Dear Domino, This is our first Christmas without you since you went to the Rainbow Bridge on 2/10/07. We miss you sleeping on the presents under the tree and pushing the bows off of them. We miss you "helping us" wrap the gifts and playing in the wrapping paper when we unwrapped them. But, most of all, we miss YOU. We left a Christmas tree and present at the Rainbow Bridge for you, so I hope you are enjoying them as much as you did here with us. We're hoping you are havng fun at Christmas with your "original" sisters, Chinook and Cookie. Your sisters Brandy and Misty here miss you as well. Misty is laying here right by my feet as I send this message to you. We love you and miss you....always and forever. MERRY CHRISTMAS, our Special Angel :)
Today is the one year anniversary of one of the saddest days in our life...the day you left us for your new home at the Rainbow Bridge. We know by now you have made many, many new friends who you are happily playing and running with. Not a day goes by that we don't think of you and all the good times we had. Some times it seems like only yesterday that you left us and other days it seems like it was so long, long ago that you were with us. Rest well, little girl, and just remember that one day we will all be together again as a family....forever and we'll never be apart again.
We love you and miss you....always and forever.

Domino, I just came back to say "thank you" for sending us a sign from the Rainbow Bridge on your birthday. They just played the song "You Are My Special Angel" on the radio, and you can see that is the song we chose to play at your residence at the Rainbow Bridge. I know that was a message from you.......
2/10/09..Good morning, little Domino. It was 2 years ago today that God called you to your new home at the Rainbow Bridge.

We hope you are enjoying all the warm sunshine and beautiful rainbows there. We think of you every day. We love you and miss you....always and forever.
