Farewell, BG









I am so far behind with the tribute posts that I will probably never catch up.  I will keep doing them every few posts, though.

This is my favorite picture of BG.  BG was a Jack Russell terrier who showed up one Labor Day at Mia and Ghost's house.  No one knew where she came from and no one claimed her, so she stayed.  She was always a very happy dog and loved to run and play.  Mia liked her, but Ghost always hissed at her, but then Ghost hissed at almost everything.  She loved to go for rides in the car and play with her toys.  Sometimes she hid behind the couch. She hardly ever barked, just sometimes at cows or at a squeaky toy when she got excited playing.  Last October she started having trouble breathing and things went from bad to worse very quickly.  She was helped to the Bridge because she couldn't be cured.

                                                 BG was a Jack Russell terrier.
                                                 She loved life; no dog was merrier.
                                                        She would run and play
                                                        In the yard all day.
                                                 Now she's gone to the Bridge, this happy terrier.

BG looks like such a playful little dog. I know they miss her a lot, the limerick is so nice.

BG looks like she enjoyed her life to the fullest while she could. That was a nice tribute.

Sounds like BG found a really nice home and had a wonderful life before he went to the bridge. Now he is running around doggie heaven all healed up.

Don't feel bad. Jan is so far behind she can't catch up either.

BG's family has had several losses, so her passing was hard on them.

What a lovely tribute for BG. I think Jack Russells look so strong and beefy. I am sorry to learn he had to be helped to the Bridge. I know he is happy where he is now.

For other folks (I refer to kitties and doggies as people) reading this, my blog has stories and information helpful for cat caretakers everywhere.

All you kitties stay well!

We were thinking of BG today since it is the Labor Day holiday. We miss her a lot and noticed that we hadn't commented on her limerick even though we do remember it.
