Welcome to Stanley's Rainbow Bridge Memorial Residency
Memories of Stanley
My sweet Stanley. I saw the look in your eyes, the pain you felt, and wanting me to ease your suffering. You slept so soundly before the vet came and I gave you a nice steak dinner while the vet gave you a sedative. You were comfortable and happy, and for that, I am so grateful. I miss you so much and my heart hurts. I know you struggled for a long time and we slept on the couch together so I could help you move throughout the night. I miss your snorts and sighs and I can still hear them. You were the best dog. You had such a rough life before we adopted you. The shelter even said due to all your battle scars that nobody would adopt you. That sealed the deal for me -- I knew you were the dog for us. And you gave us such unconditional love. You had such an even temperament. You would hear me pull into the driveway and I could see your face in the window and you were so excited I was home. I miss that. I miss you. Tonight was so hard to let you go, but it was peaceful and you loved your dinner. I held you and kissed you. A dog has too short a life. You always had so much love to give and for that, I will always love you in return. I will always miss your habits. When we first got you, you missed your shelter people. You laid in the kitchen for 3 days. You finally warmed up to me and followed me everywhere. You loved your treats. You were brave till the end. I am sick without you, my sweet boy. You were the best dog anyone could ever ask for. I feel such an emptiness without you, especially over Christmas. But I knew you were ready to go, in the sense that your physical pain was too much for you to bear. I wish I could hug and kiss you again. You are the best dog. I miss you so much that I can't even explain. I"ll write more, my sweet boy. I just can't process today right now. I hope we meet again, Stanley. I love you so much.
