My big brother Dill

Now many of you will have heard me talk about Walter (mainly cause he is such a pain in the …. I digress) but Dillon is my big brother, he has taught me everything I knew and has been taking care of mum, dad and my none furry brothers and sisters since before I was a dot in my doggie mums eye.

My darling big brother Dill today want over rainbow bridge, he was just short of his 17th birthday and had taken a turn for the worst over the last few days. Dad took him to see Ian from Bishopton in Ripon, who couldn’t have been more compassionate and caring and now he is running free over in rainbow bridge, or if i know him looking for a big comfy sofa to curl up on – you wil remember he was a fan of my big red cushion…

Bye bye Dill

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….
