Goodbye buddy!

Happy Puppy!

Walker 20 March 2002 – 27 October 2017

Today I said good-bye to my very best buddy. Walker and I have been together since September 27, 2003. For those who don’t know, Walker was my Hearing Ear dog (retired) from Lions Foundation of Canada Dogguides.

Even in these last few years where he was quite blind and deaf, he never faltered and always wanted to be by my side.

I will always, always cherish your love and devotion over these last 15 years! You were a true rockstar!

Thank you Aylmer Veterinary Clinic for providing a peaceful and loving environment for him.

RIP sweetie babes #RainbowBridge

  1. 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….
