“Home is where my Westie is”10


July 7, 1999 - May 27, 2014

Tuesday May 27th at approximately 5:30 we had to say good bye to our oldest furry daughter Skye on a beautiful warm and sunny day in our beautiful back garden.

We had hoped for a glorious day that when the time came, our wishes would be to complete her perfect little life in the place that she loved and it did. With Bryon and Ceilidh beside her while I held her in my arms to the end, Doctor (Mommy) Sharon was so gracious, kind and loving to our little Lady Skye.

For all of you that knew Skye and that touched her life in any way knew that she was a very SPECIAL little girl. She was a St John’s Ambulance Therapy dog for 3 years. giving her love, kisses and hugs to all the Aunties & Uncles/patients in Nursing Homes for 3 years of her wee life making life better for the folks that loved her.
Skye was a very Special little girl in many ways to both Bryon and I and especially her little sister Ceilidh. Skye was able to show Ceilidh how to be a very Special furry friend through all the various obstacles of life. Our Sweetheart Skye was so very beautiful in every way, that for us it’s so very difficult to believe that she’s no longer here with us.

For Bryon, Ceilidh and I, knowing that she is in Heaven with her Mommy “Tinker” and all the furry friends and people that love her makes life a little more easier for Bryon, Ceilidh and I. It’s difficult to watch Ceilidh continue to keep looking out the dining room window looking for Skye to come back home, but I’m sure in good time Ceilidh will realize that Skye is at peace up in the “Sky” were she belongs at this time in her life having a good time.

This is what I sang to her like I always did...... You are my SUNSHINE, my only SUNSHINE, you make us HAPPY when Skye’s are grey. You’ll never know dear how much we love you. Please don’t take make sunshine away!!

Rest in Peace little one!! God loves you “Skye” and so do we. We Love You so very much Sweetheart,

Mommy, Daddy & Ceilidh, XOXO

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....
