Memories of Harry
I adopted Harry,Nov.27th,2003, from a rescue.He had been beaten so bad that his front teeth had been knocked out,only his K-9 teeth were there.Sometimes his lip would get stuck and he had what I called his Elvis snear.He was healthy for a short time,about two years.He had a terrible reaction to a distemper shot,or an overdose, that was to protect him from the virus.Then I started receiving bad remarks and other sad stories about people who had gone to this same Veterinary Hospital.in Gettysburg,Pa.I then found another Veterinary Hospital, in Maryland.We fought the battle for 10 months.The attacks would come and go.My Harry was a such a fighter.I would have to feed him with a dropper,and pills..He liked being held.My Mom would hold him ,he liked to be on the couch,..but when he got sick..he looked to me.I held him in the eveings and he would lay on my arm with his head at my neck.At night he sleep on my chest..he went blind,from the beating,the rescue said he had eye truma, and I would carry him.I put bubble wrap over the lower part of the kitchen walls,around the chair and table legs so he wouldn't hurt him self.As he had trouble walking I bought a little playpen for him,so he had a place to stay,when no one was home.The playpen became his world as he got worse.At night he would get me up,when he had to go. Sometimes he just wanted to run in his play pen..and then we would go back to bed.Harry was such a little man.When he was able to see he went with me out to the Gettysburg National Military Park..I do volunteer work with the protection rangers..Harry even got an award for his time..after he went blind,he didn't want to go any more.If I didn't feed him fast enough,he would grab my shirt and pull it up and down as if to say "Hurry up".On the morning of his leaving.He didn't seem to want too much to eat or drink.I called home checking on him.Mom said that she didn't think he was going to make it...I came home a dinner and he was so sick,I gave him a little water..he would lick his lips when he wanted water.I knew I had to let him go..as Mom and I headed to vet.I told my little Harry that he could go,and that I loved him,and would see him soon.I told him about Sparky and Tigger and Penny.That they would be waiting for him...We got to the vet and Mom went in and me and Harry stayed out in the car...The tears were rolling,I huged him and told him I loved him and that he wasn't going to get better and it was time for him to go...As I huged him I think he saw me,he looked at me and then beyond,I heard his last breath and he went home..He saved me the agony of having him put down.I huged him all the way home.I asked him to forgive me for ever having the shot,and anything else. My heart is broken,Harry took it with him...I miss you Harry so much I don't know how to go thru each day,my heart is broken.But I know that someday we will be together as our hearts will all be one..as my dog family will be one once again and what a time it will be..to live forever with my little dogs and my human family..Harry I will see you at the bridge...you have a great time with my little guys who are already there. Watch for the glow from the candles Monday nights,and know they are from me...God's speed Harry and remember I will always love you...Linda....

My dearest Harry..It's hard to believe that you have been gone so long..A lot has happened..Dad passed away on June 3,2008..We lost Rusty,Wiskey,and Blaze and Tar Baby just the other day.Now you have more friends to play with..I miss your Elvis smile,your way of drinking water,and your mighty attitude..Your star still shines over your resting place here on Earth,the Rangers at Gettysburg liked you enough to make you a mascot for the voluntier patrol of Gettysburg National Military Park..I'm sure you check in once and a while to see what's going on...the new guy is Geraldo,he was born on Sept.11,2007..He is named after you Harry.If I have learned anything about our life together,it's make sure the vet is one who will take care of your pets..This vet that I took you too,was one of the worse,as I found out after your passing..Harry just remember you are missed and have fun at the Bridge,with all the others,till I see you again....

Merry Christmas Harry,missing you..Wondering what you are up to,I guess your playing with my other little guys,Penny Tigger,and my Sparky..I'm sure the Rusty's all three of them are watching over you guys as my Dad and his Penny walk the fields of Heaven..I'm sure somwhere you will my white horse Sue,and all the wild ones I took in when they were hurt,and all the rest that were in need of a friend.I guess I have a pretty large animal family that I know will come running,when I cross the bridge....Watch for my light..as I think of you guys..It's 2013 here and I guess time doesn't exist there,but I still miss you and all my fur family that has gone to the Bridge..someday I will see you again..and we will all be together forever...

Well, Harry,soon Summer will be over for another year without you...It will 2014 and where has the time gone..I think of you often,and wonder how we got into the situation that ended in taking your life...to think a vet,would be the one..Vet's are suppose to keep you from getting sick,only this one didn't..I don't think I can forgive myself for not checking on this hospital at Gettysburg...I can only hope that someday we will see each other again,as I am sure you are with the person who had you first,your rescue,was to be the best time of your life,only it turnes into hell on earth...so little man you keep having fun..as each year that passes,brings me closer to you.....Well little man it is the summer of 2015..your star still shines bright over your resting place here on earth..I guess you have met all my fur babies and running with Dad,he may even be riding my white horse Sue..miss you all and as the days turn into years I am one step closer to you all...


HI Harry..hard to believe all the time that has gone by..it seems like yesterday you left..your star shines bright over your resting place here on earth..even though you are with the angels,I still come see you here..You are missed and every day I wonder what could have been if it wasn't for that nasty vet...play with your friends,check in once in a while and someday we will all be together...

Well Harry,it is almost Christmas 2016...I guess you have found Dad and you have someone to check in and sit a spell. Mom just turned 93 so each day is taken one at a time..I have to do most of the running for her as she is going blind and can not see too well..Geraldo is getting old,but still his self..think about you all the time little man..as to what you are doing..Merry Christmas little man ..know you are missed and check in with my other little ones..Penny Tigger and Sparky..and all the others...

2017 and almost Christmas..know I still think of you and wonder how it should have been..Hi Harry well it is Spring 2018..hard to believe all the years that have passed since you left..know I still miss and wonder what could have been if I would never had taken you to such an uncaring vet...each day brings me closer to the bridge to see you and the rest come running...
