    Rest Now Rocky and Atom Until we meet again



    First, we lost Rocky last July 18, 2014 he was 12 years 4 months old. He died a natural death due to DM. His limbs weaken and as it progresses he became paraplegic and then lost urinary and fecal continence. He passed away at about 10:30 PM.

    Rocky was fun to be with he likes riding the car shot gun and sticking out his head through the window. It was a sad day for us.


    Then on August 17, not even a month passed by Atom followed he was 8 years 1 month old. Unlike Rocky, Atoms death was sudden. A day before his death he was doing fine then all of a sudden he vomitted water then the following day he vomitted water again but this time it has blood. We were not home when Atom died which is why I feel guilty we haven't had a chance to say goodbye. Goodbye Atom Goodbye Rocky Rest in Peace.

    Goodbye Atom Goodbye Rocky Rest in Peace.

    I'm so sorry. Your story is so heartbreaking. Please know we are there for you. You are not alone! Be patient with yourself. You will need time and we are here for you. Post as much as you need to.

    You might also consider creating a memorial for Rockie and Atom. There's a cool site here my friend Marguitte posted her pet's death on: forever fluffy.com They look really nice and you can have your friends and family come and comment to show their love and support.

    Oh I'm so sorry! We too were not home when our beloved Trooper passed away and I remember someone telling me at the time that our pets know that they are loved and that it works out that way for a reason. Did you do anything to memorialize them?

    I am so sorry for your loss of two beautiful dogs.
    Hopefully the following poem will help you... I found it provided
    me with some peace after I loss my last Sheppard, Caesar.

    The Rainbow Bridge

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here,
    that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
    There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
    There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor.
    Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again,
    just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing;
    they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together,
    but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.
    His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group,
    flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet,
    you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
    The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head,
    and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet,
    so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

    I am so glad I remembered this post. I had lunch with a dear friend of mine that had to put her boxer to sleep two weeks ago. She got the most beautiful gift from a friend. I emailed her and got the information. It's a heart photo pendant and it has an image of her Hailey on the front. Honestly, the quality is so incredible and she showed me the original digital image - is an exact replica. She carries it with her in her purse. I found the exact one she got but you'll see they have a ton of others. And for $40??? Worth every penny. Hope this helps!! ((hugs))
