Letter: Missing a friend


When my sweet old dot, Bruiser, died at 15 this year.

Jody and I took him to the shelter as he weighed over 100 pounds and we couldn’t bury him.

What a sad chore. Colleen Freeman was there (and we knew each other because she was a former Rio Verde Roverette) and she said “Jean, I’ll take “special care” of Bruiser.” She comforted us and eased our pain. I was saddened to hear of Colleen’s passing and know all the animals at the shelter have lost a loving friend and caregiver… and now Colleen deserves “special care.”

I’m sure that all my departed four-legged family (horse, dogs, cats” will get a loving pat from here when she visits RAINBOW BRIDGE and I wouldn’t be surprised if she doesn’t take up residence there.
