I want to thank you and tell you how much it touched me to see so many people sending
condolences for Ana.  
Thank you for passing their messages to me.

This week has been a rough week.  
I miss Ana so much.  

In hind sight I can see that Ana has been sick for a while.  
But no one knew, even when we took her to the vet, no one really knew.  
Her tests came back okay and her pain in her hips seemed to be arthritis.  
It wasn't until two weeks ago that Ana's health declined rapidly.  
The vet thought we were simply dealing with a busted knee and a kidney infection.  
She suddenly became anemic and when the x-rays and other scans showed the spots and
enlarged organs, including spotted lungs, the vet and I agreed that it was best to bring Ana
home and simply make her comfortable.

Ana was too weak to survive any type of surgery.  
Blood transfusion was discussed, but the vet thought that would only prolong Ana's misery.  
Ana was growing very tired and very weak.  
My husband and I carried her outside so she could use the bathroom and then we would carry
her back in.  
It was Ana's heart that finally gave out.  

I will tell you that I was sitting quietly shortly after Ana died.  
Suddenly there was this warm, loving feeling that came over me and I thought I saw Ana is
flash, happy and healthy.  
She was free.  
I believe that was her spirit.
My pretty girl, my Ana is free and happy.

I want to thank everyone for keeping me and my family and Ana in their thoughts and
prayers.  
It has been a comfort during this time of grief.

Tania.

Dearest Tania,

I am so sorry for your loss, but you honestly did what
you could for Ana. Please no that she is somewhere
better, away from the discomfort and pain; she is able
to be herself again - remember her that way and not
how she was in the end. Always smile as she will remain
by your side and in your heart always.

Ana, may your Spirit soar and your Soul be free.

Love Erin Garner

P.S. Thank you Anneke for passing this on for me.
Anneke,
Please share my condolence with Tania over the loss of her loved one.
And please share this site with her. It has helped me with the loss
of several loved ones.

Rainbow Bridge Poem

http://rainbowsbridge.com/Poem.htm
I am very sorry to hear about Ana.
My dog, Jasper, had a very similar fate, but I have no
closure as to why he died.
They think it was a Tumor because his blood was very
thin and it happened so fast.
It's really sad to lose them.
It has taken me a year to get over it, but I still get
teary when I see his picture at certain times.
I hope you find comfort in your other dogs.
They look like a wonder family.

Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep
by Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am a thousands winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's
hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at
night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there.
I did not die.

Margaret
I don't figure how I missed the message about Ana being sick...........
I wouldn't have been much help with any health advice though..........
Do tell your friend something:
She had good years with Ana.........
Always reflect on the smiles Ana brought to your days........
Ana would want that.......

Laffin
It really is sad about Ana.
It is a shame we did not know sooner
when there might have been time.
U are a good person.
I know that Tania is glad to have u as
a friend, and so am I ;)

I'm so sorry!
Poor baby-and poor leftovers.
Only good thing is that baby had a family who cared and was
lucky-unlike all the others whose tales we share daily.

And then there were dogs
When God had made the earth and sky,
the flowers and the trees,
he then made all the animals
the fish, the birds and bees.
And when at last He'd finished
not one was quite the same.
He said I'll walk this world of mine
and give each one a name.

And so He travelled far and wide
and everywhere he went,
a little creature followed Him
until its strength was spent.

When all were named upon the earth
and in the sky and sea,
the little creature said: "Dear Lord,
there's no name left for me."

Kindly the Father said to him,
"I've left you to the end.
I've turned my own name back to front
and called you DOG, my friend!"

May all dogs find the love deserve for simply existing

Love
Karin B.
Dear Anneke, please send this to your friend Tania.

The Rainbow Bridge...........
A bridge connects the sky and the earth.
Owing to a lot of colors one calls them the "rainbow bridge".
On the other side there is a land with meadows, hills and juicy green grass.
If on earth a beloved animal has died, it comes to this place.
There is always feed and water and the sun appears all the time.
All old, ill or pained animals are healthy again and young, as well as in our recollections of the
dreams of the last days...The animals play the whole day and are happy, up to one... They miss
somebody whom they had to leave behind.
Their dear human.
The human which they had loved on earth so much.
Thus they run and play every day, until one of them stops and looks in the distance!
The eyes become big... Suddenly it begins to run away from the group, about the green grass,
quicker and quicker and fastest!
It has seen ...you!
And if you and your best friend meet, you take him in your arms and hold him completely.
Your face is kissed, again and again ... your hand strokes the brains and, finally, you look again in
the loyal eyes of your beloved animal which had disappeared as long from your life, but never from
your heart...
Then you cross together the rainbow bridge and are never again separated of each other.
Anneke,

I am so sorry that Ana has left this world.
What a beautiful girl she was.
Her wonderful and kind spirit was actually
visible in her picture.
I know that Tania did everything possible to
save her,and I am so sorry for the pain of
losing a beloved companion.

I do like to contribute this beautiful
picture and poem/blessing by Elias Amadon
in honor
of the angels who came to escort Ana to the
Rainbow Bridge,where she now is living in
complete joy until Tania meets her there.

Dear Tania,

The tears are falling right now because I still miss my
wonderful sweet baby Shadow that I had for 12 years.
I lost him last July and I know how you feel.

Although nothing or no one can ever replace Ana...
maybe it will help you to know that she had the best
home on this earth that was possible and she loved you
very much.

You're in my heart and prayers,

with much love and respect,
Trisha

You've Got A Friend
http://indigo.org/friends/

I truly understand as I miss Shadow so much...and it's

cancer. Once diagosed he was gone in a month. I miss

to her.

Hugs,

"Love knows not its own depth until

~Kabil Gibran~

Cathe Romano.
A pets love is one of God's greatest gifts
Always there for you
Their love never lifts.
A pet is a friend to treasure and love,
A gift from the heavens,
A gift from above.
When you look into your pet's trusting eyes,
Something is there
That no one can disguise.
It's a look of complete love and something
to admire,
It makes your heart melt
And sets your soul afire.
When the day comes for you and him to part,
Your pet's soul is still with you,
He is still in your heart.
And at the Bridge he does what he used to,
Running, playing, jumping
And waiting for you.
And when you do enter heaven forever,
You find your still loving pet
And cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

Rest in Peace, Dear Ana
Anneke.
My thoughts and prayers are for you
at the time of your loss.

Peace, Jim King
I am very sorry to hear of your loss, Ana,
it is very difficult to lose a beloved
member of your family, may Ana, find
peace at the bridge, I know she is with
you in spirit always, till you meet again,
very sincerely,
Lynette Z
I'm sorry to hear about you companion,
what happened to her ?

I will keep you and Ana in my prayers...

Dear Anneke,

I think it is wonderful what you are doing for Tania and Ana,
What Beautiful and Majestic Animals these White Shepards are.
They remind me of My White Dog when I was Younger,(even
though he was a samoyed) they look so much alike.
Anyway..
My thoughts and prayers for Ana, and Tania.
Goddess Bless them Both and Ana to a safe Journey to the
Spiritual Realm.

Blessed Be!
Your Friend,

BEYOND THE RAINBOW
As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,  
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.  
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble free,  
where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.  
I saw the most beautiful rainbow and on the other side  
were meadows rich and beautiful lush and green and wide!

And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see  
were every sort of animal, as healthy as could be!  
My own tired failing body was fresh and healed and new  
and I wanted to go run with them but I had something left to do.  
I needed to reach out to you to tell you I'm alright,  
that this place is truly wonderful - then a bright glow pierced the night.

'Twas the glow of many candles shining bright and strong and bold  
and I knew then that it held your love in it's brilliant shades of gold.  
For although we may not be together in the way we used to be  
we are still connected by a cord that no eye can ever see.  
So whenever you need to find me we're never far apart  
if you look beyond the rainbow and listen with your heart.

Victoria B
You are welcome Tania but thank
YOU for sharing Ana's story with us
and trusting each of us enough to
share it with us.
It sounds like you and your family did
what was necessary FOR Ana and she
was more than thankful in the end.
Her passing will become easier with
time as the void of her will slowly be
filled with other things.

She lives on inside you each.

Love
Erin *hug*
You're very welcome!
I truly understand as I miss Shadow
so much... and it's been 6 months
although it still seems like yesterday.

God bless,
Trisha
Thank you Anneke, for passing this on to those of us
who care so much.
Please tell Tania that I also think she received a
message from Ana.
When I lost my Rusty, and later, Jack (Jack from liver
disease at only 5 years) I too, "saw" them. I saw Rusty
while I was awake, sitting quietly by my side, with his
coat healthy again and very peaceful. Jack I saw from
time to time smiling at me with his doggy grin. I was
never one to believe these things until they happened
to me. I think it is a great source of comfort to know
our beloved animal companions are now pain-free and
okay.
Much love to you and Tania and Ana,
Lynn
Oh Tania, My heart goes out to you.
I have an Arab who is 19 years old.
I certainly believe that your lovely
companion is with you in Spirit and will
remind you of that often.   
Hang in there.

Hugs,
Fay K
Would you please express my condolences to Tania, it is so very hard
to lose a loved companion.  
Something I may have to face in the next few months so know what a
gut wrenching lose it is .  
My prayers are still with Tania.

Heaven's Doggy-Door
My best friend closed his eyes last night,
As his head was in my hand.
The Doctors said he was in pain,
and it was hard for him to stand.
The thoughts that scurried through my head,
As I cradled him in my arms.
Were of his younger, puppy years,
And Oh...his many charms.
Today, there was no gentle nudge
With an intense "I love you gaze",
Only a heart that's filled with tears
Remembering our joy filled days.
But an Angel just appeared to me,
And he said, "You should cry no more,
GOD also loves our canine friends, He's installed a 'doggy-door'!!!

ANNEKE,

THANKYOU SO MUCH FOR THE NICE EMAIL FROM TANIA.
I DO NOT KNOW HER EMAIL SO I WONDER IF YOU COULD FORWARD THIS TO HER FOR ME
HOWEVER YOU CAN SO SHE CAN GET THIS LITTLE NOTE.

DEAR TANIA,

MY DEEP HEART FELT CONDOLENCES TO YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND OF THE LOSS OF  ANA.

TANIA, YOU WERE SO RIGHT AS THAT INDEED WAS THE SPIRIT OF ANA LETTING YOU KNOW
THAT SHE LOVED YOU AND STILL LOVES YOU AND TELLING YOU ALSO THAT SHE IS NOW PAIN
FREE AND WHOLE AGAIN NOW PLAYING AND FROLICKING WITH ALL HER NEW PALS AT THE
RAINBOW MEADOWS ACROSS  THAT BEAUTIFUL RAINBOW BRIDGE.
I KNOW THAT SHE WAS WELCOMED WITH OPEN PAWS AND GREETINGS FROM HER FELLOW
CANINES AND FELINES AS WELL.

MY TOMMY LEE, SAMMY, SNOWBALL, PHANTOM AND MISTY WERE CERTAINLY WAITING THERE
FOR HER AND GREETING HER AND LETTING HER KNOW THAT EVERYTHING WILL BE OK AND
PLENTY OF TOYS AND TREATS THERE.
MY HOSPICE ANIMALS THAT WE LOST THIS WEEK ARE ALSO THERE.
WE LOST LILLY, SPIKE AND TIGGER ALL IN ONE WEEK.

TANIA, REST ASSURED THAT YOU AND ANA WILL DEFINITELY MEET AGAIN.
ONCE YOU WALK ACROSS THAT BRIDGE AS ANA IS PLAYING AND FROLIKING WITH ALL HER PALS
SHE WILL ALL OF A SUDDEN STOP AND SNIFF THE AIR AND RECOGNIZE THAT LOVELY HUMAN
SCENT THAT SHE ONCE KNEW.
SHE WILL TURN AND SPOT YOU AND YOU HER AND YOU BOTH WILL RUN FULL SPEED AHEAD
AND UPON REACHING EACH OTHER SHE WILL LEAP UP INTO YOUR ARMS AND GIVE YOU THOSE
SAME LOVELY KISSES SHE USED TO AND YOU HER AND ONCE AGAIN YOU WILL ETERNALLY BE
TOGETHER FOREVER AND TO NEVER BE SEPARATED AGAIN.
I SO LOOK FORWARD TO THE SAME WITH ALL MY FUR KIDS AS I MISS THEM SO MUCH.
BUT I AM SO HAPPY THAT THEY ARE NOW PAIN FREE AND WHOLE AGAIN IN THEIR BODIES.
TANIA, THRIVE ON THE BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES YOU HAD WITH ANA AND YOU CAN BETTER
BELIEVE SHE IS TELLING ALL HER NEW FRIENDS ALL ABOUT HER FUR PARENTS.
TAKE CARE AND I KNOW THE PAIN YOU ARE GOING THRU IN YOUR LOSS AND THE MISSING
PHYSICALLY OF ANA. NOW AND THEN YOU CAN ALSO BE SURE THAT YOU WILL SENSE HER
PRESENCE IN SOME WAY OR ANOTHER.
I HAVE WITH MINE.

SINCERELY,

RICHARD CROWELL
I am so sorry.
I know what it is like because I lost a beloved
Borzoi to cancer a few years ago, but still
remember him each day of my life.
There are no words that I can say to make
things better, but I just want you to know that
I sympathize with you and I am truly sorry.

Love and Peace,
Whisperette
You lie quiet now,
A great healing is coming
and you want to be ready.
The colours of your heart blend
with the light of the morning.

You are blessed.

~ Elias Amidon

I am so sorry for your companion Ana, and her fight against cancer.
I just lost my beautiful 10 years old feline Chase, to cancer of the
mouth which he battled courageously but quickly became worse.
My thoughts are with you and your wonderful dog, may the angels
watch over her and I am sure my Chase is too.

Peace, Kim K
