I hope you are having fun running around rainbows bridge waiting for me but I also hope you met your sister, Sophie who went to the bridge on Oct 13, it is my dream that you, Sophie and Shiloh are all together playing and taking care of each other. Mom and I are doing okay, we are still very sad about losing Sophie to a very disgusting disease which would ultimately had paralyzed her for good, we could not wait for that to happen. You 3 take care and stay close to each other and always remember you are family!
love Dad and Mom
I have to tell you we had to send Sophie to rainbows bridge on Oct 13, 2020, she was almost incapable of standing or walking on her own.
Hi baby girl,
Dear Shelby, I was thinking about you and how much I miss you, hard to believe it has been 9 years since you crossed over Rainbows Bridge. Sophie is getting worse and really has a hard time getting up and walking, I am afraid it is getting very close to the time that she may have to cross over the bridge, but when that time comes, I know you will be there to greet her ! Please take good care of he,r as she is your little sister.
Love you always, Dad
I missed the anniversary of your passing on July 5, I have some distressing news, your sister, Sophie has been diagnosed with degenerative myopathy which is basically going to paralyze her in her hind legs. She is having a difficult time getting up and walking, her legs just don't work and she basically lays around most of the day, but her attitude is very good, still seems happy and glad to be here with us. I get she has a limited time left with us, I will let you know when she is on her way to crossing Rainbows bridge so you can greet her and teach her the ropes there.
Hello baby girl,
Today marks 7 years that you crossed over the bridge, I miss you everyday and think of you often, we moved from the home you knew and loved but I think you would love our new place as well. Your sister, Sophie, has been a little more to handle than you were, she is spoiled but then again, we spoiled you too, that's who we are, we love our pets. Sophie does not like playing ball like you did, I can hardly get her to even try to catch it, but then again, you were exceptional catching and playing ball, I miss you so much, love you always, your devoted Daddy.
Good morning sweetie,
Baby girl, we moved to SC 2 months ago and we have you ashes with us just like always. I see you everyday and know that you are resting comfortably next to Mom and Dad like always.
We miss and love you very much,
Mom and Dad
My dearest Shelby, today marks 6 long years that you have been gone, my heart breaks just thinking about you. I know we will see each other once again but, the wait is truly miserable. I think about you and all the times we spent together, and that does bring a smile to my face.
Rest softly my little girl and we will meet again soon,
All our love, M & D
Hi Baby girl,
Mom and me miss you everyday, we still think of you all the time.
Oh how I still miss you, I think of you often, and it brings me great joy. You and me in the yard playing ball, or riding in the truck; you LOVED riding in the back bed, and even when we got home and parked in the driveway, you would stay in the bed and just enjoy it. The one comfort I have is your ashes are on the night stand with a picture of you on the front of it. This way I get to see you every night when I go to bed, just like before you got sick, you would sleep next to the bed on the rug.
I really miss that!
Love you sweetie, Dad
Good Morning my babygirl!!!
Yesterday; 4 years ago, we kissed and said good-bye as you departed this world and entered Rainbows Bridge. I still think about you almost everyday; you were so sweet and beautiful; loved playing ball in the yard. Your sister Sophie; well she likes the ball playing, but no where near the intensity you did, she is more of a lounger type girl!!!!! I changed your memorial picture to the one I have hanging in my office at work. Everyone who sees it makes a remark about how pretty you are; and when I tell them you got sick and we had to let you go to heaven; they become sad, just like Mom and I. We will visit your grave on Xmas as always, love you sweetie, see you soon!
Good Morning Sweetie!
Another year has passed since you entered heaven without me, I miss you all the time, I speak about you constantly, how wonderful of a friend and companion you were to us, we will never forget you and the love you brought into our home. I still find it difficult to think about 7/5/2011, your last full day at the pool with me, you were so tired and quiet, I knew you could not go any longer, so at 6 PM that night, we let you go to heaven where you would suffer no longer, my heart still aches thinking about that aweful night, I am getting very stressed out just writing about it now. Just know babygirl, we will aways, and always hold the love together which we shared, and one beautiful day we will meet again, and share new memories and love.
We love and miss you everyday!
Mom and Dad, and little sis Sophia......
I wanted to say good morning to you as I was here visiting your big Sister, Shiloh. It is her 13th yr at rainbowsbridge, I hope you have gotten to know her and stay close by as family members do. Your little step-sister Sophie is doing well, she will turn 3 this July 2nd. Shelby, I still sit and think about you often; remembering your beautiful disposition and friendly personality. We have so many pictures of you and that helps us stay very close to you, especially the video's of you running around the yasrd and pool playing ball, I really miss doing that with you. I mean if you were a human, you definitely would be a major league ball player, you csught anything within range, no problem. It makes me smile just writing about it.
I love you babygirl, always Dad
Its another year goneby that we miss and love you very much! We were thinking you all day on the 5th, seems like just yesterday we were at the pool with you playing ball on your last July 4th with us. Sophie, your little sister Step sister) has grown big and strong just like you were
Well, Today makes 1 year since you crossed over rainbows bridge! I still hurt inside when I think back to what was going on this same time last year. At this exact time, I was worried sick about taking you to the vets office as I knew what was about to happen and just didn't want to face it. Knowing I was about to end the life of my best friend and companion. I knew it had to be done as you were starting to show the signs of suffering and that was not an option for me. I had promised you back in Dec 2011 when you were officially diagnosed; that once you started having signs of suffering; that I would help you pass over rainbows bridge. It was hard, very hard in fact; but it would have been even harder to watch you suffer and become more and more sick. We had 10 1/2 years together, sharing our lives as a family, friend and companion to each other. I was blessed with that, you were such a great family member; and never ever got into anything during those long days in the house by yourself while we were at work. I have a large picture of you with the Rainbows bridge poem hung on the wall in the office, and your little dog house memorial that houses your ashes on the fireplace mantel, where we can see you all the time.
We love you always, rest peacefully my baby girl..
Good Morning Babygirl!!!
I try to kiss your urn everyday but honestly, I forget an awful lot, just get busy, but I always think of how beautiful of a babygirl you were and still are, we both miss you very very much!!
This is the first year the new puppy will be with us around the pool, I am alittle worried about that; you rememeber how you feel in a few times playing ball, mommy never liked it but you and I had a great time playing ball in and around the pool. Of course; when you would fall in, you always had me to jumop in too to save you, as you could get out with some serious help.
I miss you babygirl, I still get teary eyed when writing to you.
You entered Rainbows Bridge two weeks ago today, my heart is still in pieces. I can't accept the fact you are no longer around to play ball in the yard, and sleep by my bed. I miss you so much, I do hope you forgive me for sending you off; but you were starting to show the effects of the cancer and you had a hard time drinking or eating and just getting worse, I couldn't watch you go through that any longer.
