Sugar was our first rescue baby, from a kill shelter in Memphis. A special thanks to Mary Ruth Rogers who runs Russels Rescue in Columbia,Tn for finding just the right fit for our family. I know God makes the creatures, big and small, and He can take them home and they will be healed. We know our Sugar is waiting at the bridge for us. And we know she will no longer be sick and will be able to run and play until we join her.
Day 4 since you went to the Bridge to wait. At church last night Pastor said something that hit home. When a person has personal sorrow...the devil uses it as ammunition to get into your head, to make us sad and forget the wonderful place you are now. Know what? It worked this morning...I was missing you so much and the tears started again to come. I just said over and over...devil get out of my head, get out now. I am so glad I was able to get comfort that way.I know you are playing and having a great time with the others waiting with you. Please keep watch over us my sweet Sugar. Daddy and Mommie miss you.
Day 7 Well, is one week today,my precious Sugar...Dr Galbraith sent you to be healed forever. I held you as he gave you your rest easy shot. He then gently took you from my arms....and helped you to make your trip to the Rainbow Bridge. I know you have made so many new friends there by now, my sweet girl. Enjoy the fresh air and clouds and all your new friends to play with. Mom and Dad will look for you when we get there too. We love you so very much.
Day 12. Added some pictures of you, and one of your sister and you sitting in your favorite spot, on dad's lap. Hope you enjoy seeing these again. Missing you terribly.
Day 22 Yesterday was 3 weeks that you were released from your sickness and went to the Bridge to wait for Daddy and me. Couple of days ago, I was sitting in Daddy's recliner doing paper work and out of the corner of my eye I cought a glimpse of white and for a split second, thought it was you sitting in the other recliner. Boy, did the tears come then. I knew you were at the Bridge, it was only momentary..we miss you so much. Please dont forget us, and when we do get to the Bridge...bring all your new friends so we can meet them. Sleep well my Sugar, mommie loves you so much.
July 10th...We had some thunder today, first since you went to the Bridge. I was walking in from the car and had to tear up again. And was so very thankful that you are no longer afraid of thunder...all those terrible fears are now gone. Take that thunder!!!!! You can no longer scare my Sugar. Miss you terribly my sweet Sugar
July 15th..Will be a month tomorrow that you went to the Bridge, you are always in our thoughts. Your sister was so sad without you my precious Sugar, and the Lord saw fit to give us another rescue furbaby, just like when we got you. Her name is Gidget and she's 3 months old, but of course you already know that, dont you. Don't ever think she will take your place, as that will never ever happen sweet Sugar. I know you would want us to always help the little ones when we can.
On my way home from church yesterday, there was a beautiful beagle lying on the side of the road, please make sure you watch over him there at the Bridge, and tell him how sorry you and your friends are that he had to be hit by a car. I know he is running and playing with all of you now. Mommie and Daddy love and miss you so much Sugar.
August 2..been 2 and half months since you went to the Bridge...I still see you everywhere...Daddy calls your name when talking to your 2 sisters here..then it makes him sad. We know you are having a great time running and playing while waiting on us at the Bridge. We miss you so very much our Sugar girl.
August 7th: Sugar please go find a little puppy named Morsel. He came to the bridge today, and may be scared. He is so very young, but like you was very sick. He was rescued like you. His fosters tried their very best to fix him, but God wanted him more. Make him feel comfy and play with him until his humans come to cross the Bridge with him. Miss you my sweet sugar.
Sept 16...today is 3 months that you left us to go be healed. It still hurts so much, we miss you so.
Sept 22,2013: My sweet Sugar girl, please take care of a sweet little pit bull that must have just gotten there. Was on my way to church earlier today and saw it lying by the curb. Was in town, but of course you already know that, don't you. Please take good care of this precious pet, who may have really been scared on its journey to the Bridge. My prayers was it didnt have to lie there and hurt before it started the journey there. Show your love for this precious furby and do the proper introductions. Mom and Dad love you so, and know you will be waiting for us.
November 17th......5 months you have been gone to wait on us...not a day goes by that mommie and daddy does not miss you.It is very windy here tonight,we are supposed to get bad storms. I thought of you my sweet girl, and how you no longer have to be afraid. Take that storms, you cant make Sugar afraid any more!!!!!! We know you are happy where you are and are waiting on us.

December 29th. Hi Sweet Sugar girl, be sure and look for a pretty shepherd mix, went to the bridge today. someone just let him run loose and he got hit by a car and laid by the road over night in the bitter cold. They found him and got him to the vet, and found his back and spinal cord were severely injured...he was in shock and they tried and tried their best. But God took him to the bridge. Please find him, and show him how wonderful it is there. His back is fine now and he can run and play with you until we get there sweetie. We love you and miss you so much. Daddy and Mommie.
So very sorry my sweet Sugar. We are thinking of you daily and know you are waiting on us when we come to the bridge to find you.We have a nice young man staying with us as Foster Child. We have shown him many pictures of you. I just wish you could have met him, you would love him like Sassy and Gidget do. Next month will be very hard for our family, it will be a year from when you went to the bridge. Sleep with the angels my sweet Sugar. Mommie and Daddy miss you so much.
June 16th, 2014. My sweet Sugar, one year ago today you went to the Bridge. There is not a day that you aren't thought about and missed. I still think of you each time I drive by Dr Galbraith's office. And we still have tears for you our sweet girl. Run free girl, welcome all the new furby's when they come and show them how wonderful it is there. Until we join you, just remember how much we love you. Daddy and Mommie.
December 26, 2014. Christmas is over now and there have been many changes since I last left you a message. Have had 2 great grand children born, Bentley and Corley. They are wonderful. Have had several of our friends that had their furby's come to the Bridge to be healed and wait. I know you and your friends there welcomed them and made them not afraid. We think of you all the time sweet Sugar, and please continue to wait for us at the Bridge, and keep an eye out for me and daddy when we get there. We love you so much. Daddy and Mommie.
