I Had a Dream...

 I had a dream last week....




 Dory and I were on our couch way back when we were only puppies.  She let me know she was in a place where sun puddles appeared whenever you needed them, there are unlimited pumpkin crunchies, squirrels appeared just for her to chase and there is never, ever any pain.  

She thanked me for helping Mama and Daddy get through the past couple of months and what a good job I had done training Arty to take over as family scheduler! 

Dory let me know the hardest thing about going to this place was that Mama and Daddy couldn't go with me and they would be sad. I asked her if we could check in on them from time to time to make sure they were ok?? She said we would always live in their hearts and we could visit them in their dreams and memories all the time.

She told me she was saving me a place,  for when I am ready. 

Earlier this week,
I let Mama and Daddy know I was ready....
 I am now with my Sissy Dory at the Rainbow Bridge. I told Mama and Daddy to not be sad.  After all, Dory needs someone to make sure she does everything she is supposed to do! 

I will really miss Blogville and I know Arty and Jakey will do their best uphold the legacy Dory and I began way back in 2009! 

Love and Growlies, 
Bilbo

Dear Sweet Bilbo..
We are so very very sorry Dear friend but one thing for sure we understand.
We pets know when it is time.....your precious Dory left early to prepare a nice sunny spot for you OTRB and the best news is NO rain so lots of out of doors time and I hear the pumpkin crunchies are EVERYWHERE.
So Bilbo I say a bittersweet until we meet again. I will miss your sweet face but am so very happy that you and Dory will be together again for eternity.
Be sure to fly in to say hi every now and make sure Mayor Arty and Jakey are TCB per your instructions.

Dear Bilbo, we know you will be happy to be reunited with your beautiful sister Dory. We are sending all the POTP and hugs we can to your mom, dad and brothers. We're so sorry to hear that it is your time but all we can hope for is a safe passage across the Bridge for you.

lexitheschnauzer said...

Dear Bilbo, you let your folks know you are ready for them to give you their final gift. You will be OK, and I know you aren't worried. I am so sad and cry for your Mom and Dad, as their hearts break once again.

C.L.W.STEP said...

Oh no! We'll be thinking about you this afternoon and hoping you make a peaceful trip. We are terribly sad, though. Sending lots of POPTP to your family.

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Bilbo, we are sad that you are not doing well, but you have such a great attitude about what is to be. We have always admired you for carrying on for so many years. We think you and Angel Phantom had a lot in common in that respect. Your Mama and Daddy will be very sad but they do understand that you and Dory are forever in their hearts and with them in spirit. They have made the hardest decision they are asked to make for their beloved pet, but they know that it is time and only want what is best for you. Many hugs and much comfort to your family from all of us.

Hugs and Woos - Lightning and Misty, and Mom too

noodle4president said...

My heart feels so heavy, Bilbo. We know you'll be safe, happy, pain-free, and resting with Dory but it sure hurts to know you won't be with your Mom and Dad anymore. Thank you for being a good friend the last few years and for being there for me and my family when we needed you. We hope you have a smooth journey to the bridge and I'll see you again one day. Say hi to my sister and cousin for me. Love always (with *ear licks), Noodle

Dona Kelly said...

Dearest Bilbo, thank you for this beautiful note. I am somewhat new to Blogville but fell in love with you the first time I saw your picture. I'm glad Dory will guide you on your journey to the RB and that you will have this special day with your family. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers all day with extra vibes of love and courage this evening (your time).

Jans Funny Farm said...

Oh, dear, the tears are flowing for your mom and dad and the rest of the pack. We are sad your time has come to leave but you have given your family so much joy over the years, so many happy memories. We have enjoyed reading of your adventures and will be thinking of you all as you begin a new adventure this evening.

I cannot stop the tears. I'm so sorry at this news. So sorry to see you go, Bilbo. Please know the poodles and I are sending loads of hugs and tails wags to you and your family. Your little man will be with his sweet sister romping pain free, with all the flowers and treats they want. 💔

Amber DaWeenie said...

I just dont have the right words to say how sorry I am. I know this is probably the hardest decision a pet parent ever has to make. But it's the last gift of love you can give and probably the most important. Sending lots of hugs.

Oh Bilbo! We know you'll be happy running and playing at the Bridge, but it's so hard on your family and friends left behind. We're sending your pack all our love. Cinderella will be there to say hell at the Bridge!

Caren Gittleman said...

oh Bilbo our hearts are just broken. We can't begin to imagine the pain your parents are feeling losing both of you so close together. Dory will be happy to see you, but your parents are going to be devastated. We are so deeply, deeply sorry. With love and deepest sympathy from Caren and Dakota

Sending love and a warm hug to you as you travel on your way across the rainbow bridge little Bilbo ... many friends await you.

And love and hugs to your Mom and Dad, too ... and prayers.

KB Bear said...

Oh Bilbo... my heart is hurting for your family. I know that you're with Dory now - and the two of you are snuggling and loving each other. But your family is so sad. I am sending them lots of love and POTP to try to help them a tiny bit. Hugs to everyone...

Team Beaglebratz with Lady Shasta said...

Beth and Ed - I am so sorry I missed this earlier. You must be devastated - Bilbo was such a sweetie. To first lose Dory and now Bilbo - and what a sweet blog post - you did good. I'm sure Angels Dory and Bilbo are looking down on you both with smiles - they both know they had a wonderful life with you as you did with them.

Dear Bilbo - everyone here in Blogville miss you but we know that you are now at peace with your sissy Dory and feeling fine at the Rainbow Bridge. I hope you run into Angel Shiloh - he's a Beagle and always thought of himself as God's gift to the hunter so whatever squirrels and wascally wabbits your sissy Dory hasn't found - he is sure to help you find them.
Run free dear Bilbo

Collie222 said...

I'm so very sorry, two losses so close together have to be very devastating. You are in our thoughts.

Sweet William The Scot said...

I was saddened to read about Bilbo over at the Idaho Pugs.
May the good earth be soft under you Bilbo
when you rest upon it,
and may it rest easy over you when,
at the last, you lay out under it,
And may it rest so lightly over you
that your soul may be out
from under it quickly,
and up, and off,
And be on its way to God.
Sweet William The Scot

LP said...


We are all very sad to hear this. Our Mama fell in love with your sweet, little face the first time she saw it Bilbo! We understand how difficult it must have been for your parents to let you go so soon after saying good-bye to Dory.We hope they take comfort in knowing that you were loved and you were taken care of by them, so commendably well! Dory will be there to greet you and to take your hand as will our Angel Isadora and so many angel friends who will surround you with their love. Rest in peace little Bilbo. We are sending your parents lots of love and support.

Susan said...

Sweet Bilbo - Dory must have been first in line to greet you and show you around. Are you running around and playing with her and all the other Rainbow Bridge furries? Sending Hugs and Wugs to your Pawrents and Brofurs. I'm sure you'll get to meet my sweet Angel Lexi, too!

Lovable Lily said...

Oh no...... Our hearts are breaking to hear about Bilbo. We believe his reunion with Dory was glorious!

onespoiledcat said...

Bilbo, I might not have known you but I know how hard it is to leave your family behind when you have to go. I miss my Mom and Dad but I'm keeping a close eye on them AND my little brother I never knew, Teddy from the Bridge. I know you are running free and happy now in this beautiful place we are but your heart is back with them - they know that. Memories will keep them warm.

Love, Angel Sammy
