Mondays Memories

Tom and Joker rescued when he was 5 and a half years old.
Amanda rescued when she was 4.7 years old.
Bambi rescued when she was 5 months old with kennel cough and almost died poor baby!!
Bruce gotten from the ex's dog Hank. Bruce was brought home to me when I had just come home from a full hysterectomy b/c I had stage 4 cancer. He was 7 weeks old. I know how to take care of a puppy and he was so smart. I had him house trained in two days!! We were never apart. That is the key to a wonderful dog.

I want to thank everyone for their kind, loving words to me when I so need them!!! I am in shock that I lost my sweet Bambi so fast but I am glad she died with me with her in her own home. The last hour and a half she had a very fast heart beat and then it just stopped!!! Just that simple, her heart stopped!! During the last couple of years I was hoping I wouldn't have to put her to sleep. I hate to do that, even when, you are doing it out of deep love for your fur-baby. I didn't have to!!!
I would love to get to you all and say thank-you so much for your wonderful words of wisdom but on dial up it would take me months.
I had 71 comments---- THANK_YOU!!!!

Love coming your way, Fern

  6. Fern, you have been on my mind constantly...Bambi's leaving was how it should be--With you nearby and with those things she knew best. I have a feeling she's not that far away, and I know that a part of her will always, always remain with you in your heart.

  7. Our hearts ache for you Fern. Bambi loved you so much and it was wonderful that she spent her last moments on earth with you. she will be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge. You are always in my thoughts.
    Warm hugs to you, Gail, Mistaya and Maggie

  8. What very beautiful memories these are, Miss Fern. We are still thinking of you and sending you lots of luv as you grieve for your Most Darling Bambi.

    Gentle wiggles & wags,

  9. Fern, You continue to be heavy on my heart so just here sending love to you. Your Bambi's last hours came the way my Sadie's did-sudden and unexpected. I'm thankful that Bambi passed with you right there.
    Sending lots of love to you.

  10. Those of us who have lost beloved dogs do know how you feel. How wonderful that you were right there for Bambi until the very end. My thoughts will be with you.

  11. Dear Miss Fern, I (Frankie Furter) firmly believe that what Bambi did was to give YOU what you had hoped fur. I think she did it as her way of saying, THANK YOU Mom fur my RESCUE, and fur giving me all these years of happiness. What a GIFT she GAVE TO YOU!!

  12. Hang in there...just keep thinking of how much she loved you and you loved her!! That will help and don't worry about saying are here for us and visa versa!!

  13. It's always hard to lose someone beloved, no matter if it's a person, dog, cat or something else. I have the same hope that you do, that one day they will just go to sleep and not wake up. It hasn't worked out that way for me in the past, but I always hope for that. Bambi was a special girl and she'll always have a special place in your heart!

  15. I am so sorry for your loss.

    For years after my big white Una died I thought I saw her beside me, and I would always reach down to stroke her.

    I wish that our animals could live so much longer.

    Thanks for all the love you give,

  16. Hi Fern! Just dropping off some happy thoughts. :)

    Wishing you well!

    Woofs & hugs,


  17. Oh Fern! For some reason, my blogger does not update me on new posts for some bloggers and I don't know why. I am so very, very sorry to hear your sweet Bambi has died! I'm reading this with tears and thinking about how sorry I am that I did not know this before. My heart breaks for you... Please forgive me for not coming by sooner. You are in my heart and my prayers..

  18. Oh Fern... I am just so sorry.... The last few weeks have been ones of many tears since I lost my beloved Jazz... i did have to have him put to sleep... and I stayed with him till the last, I would not leave my dear lambie. It WAS so HARD! But I stroked his head and talked to him and right before the vet gave the injection, my Jazz gave me one last kiss on the chin.....
    I am so glad you didn't have to put Bambi down....
    Thanks for your kind words on my blog...
    You have a caring heart....

  19. Oh I forgot to tell you, just cherish those memories of your beloved friend.... Bambi was beautiful and must have brought so much joy to you... you will be in my thoughts and prayers...

  20. Dear Fern, That was such a nice post. You have so many nice memories. I didn't know you were so sick and how awesome it was to have Bruce by your side! You see you do have lots of friends and it's amazing how they all come for each other when someone is hurting. I love the blogging community!!
    Although Bambi is gone, she is now out of her pain, but she is in your heart forever and ever.

  21. Hi Fern! Sending lotsa puppy prayers your way! We're all thinking of you here. :)

    Woofs & hugs,


  22. What a sweet post! Such beautiful dogs have graced your life! I am sorry you are still suffering from the loss of your precious Bambi. When my last dog died, it took me months before I could even talk about him without bawling. So I completely understand your pain, and am truly sorry.

    It is a blessing Bambi was with you, and that she went on her own, when it was her time to leave.

  23. I am so sorry about Bambi's passing. But I am happy that she has lived many long years with you. I am sure she was happy that you were there with her, by her side, holding her when she slipped away. She just wanted you to be there with her. Now she is free of pain & young again at the Rainbow Bridge. Hugs to you. Take care & stay strong.
