It always hurts so bad because we love them so much. He was a beautiful boy and looks a lot like our very first golden, Scooter, who died at 5 yars 2 months of heart attack. A sudden and very unexpectd death. Scooter has been gone a little over 10 years----and still missed, as are the 3 we have lost since losing him.
I am so sorry for your loss. Rustie was a beautiful boy and I know he brought much love to you and your family. I know the pain you are going through, it was a month ago today that we lost our Rusty, another big red boy and we still miss him terribly. His 12 yr. old sister Sadie, our yellow lab, could not bear the loss of her beloved companion of 10 years and passed away this past Monday. We cannot believe we have lost 2 of our beloved dogs in such a short period of time. I know both Rusty and Sadie were there to great your Rustie when he arrived at the Bridge and they are all running happy and free of pain and suffering.
I am so very sorry for your loss. Rustie was beautiful, and I am so sorry for the grief and pain you are feeling. Please tell us more about your special guy, when you feel up to sharing. So many of us here have felt your pain. God Speed sweet Rustie.
