Welcome to Grace's Rainbow Bridge Memorial Residency
Memories of Grace
Grace,I remember the day I brought you home and we couldn't tell if you were a boy or girl. That was fun. From then on, you fit in right away and stole our hearts. From eating your poo to pooing in your kennel and smearing it everywhere when we weren't home, we knew you were a special one. I remember you keeping me awake at night when you first came to live with us. Those puppy screeches were LOUD. But I was beyond thrilled just to have you and I didn't mind. I remember taking you on our walks before I'd have to go to work at Baker's. I wish we had been able to take more of them. You grew out of that puppy stage and turned into the most beautiful dog I had ever seen. After I graduated nursing school, we made our first big move to Temecula. You finally had a big yard to play in and lots of room to run. We took a trip to the river, went on walks, you became less and less afraid of the pool, you played with Lobo and Kody, ate like a champ, and slept next to me...or on top of me watching football on Saturdays and Sundays. One thing is for sure..you slept by my side almost every night for over 14 years. After we left our first house, you went through an additional 6 moves with us. You saw me through the deaths of my grandpa and father, a divorce, and remarriage, a baby, losing our second baby, countless jobs, a major car accident, injuries sustained at work, and so many happy memories in between. As you grew older, I began to dread the day I would lose you, for you had always been my forever friend and loved me 100% unconditionally. I wish we could have taken more walks, gone out more, I could have bonded with you by brushing you more (even though you hated it). I would say every year to myself that this might be your last birthday or our last Christmas together. Know this, my good and faithful friend...I never took a single second for granted. Yesterday was the hardest thing I've ever had to do as a pet parent, and the hardest thing I've ever done in my entire life. I wanted to be selfish and hang on to you, but I could not watch you suffer another day. Without food and water, you had become weak and your heart was very sick. You were the best dog I could ever ask for. I'll never love another like I loved you. No dog will ever take your place. You are always in my heart, always on my mind, and will forever be a part of our family. I know you're at peace now and you've crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I can't wait until we meet again, Gracie. I love you.
