|BRADFORD PEAR TREE|
Today is a time for sadness and remembering at our house.
One of our outside doggies, RailRoad, went across his Rainbow Bridge Monday morning.
He passed at home cradled in the Dad's arms.
He was our sweet, but obstinate doxie.
Our rescue from the railroad tracks. (hence his name)
He had a broken hip and Mommy called him to our car and the rest was history.
He was lucky that the hip healed without surgery, but his luck was short-lived.
Shortly thereafter he was diagnosed with epilepsy. He took two pills twice a day for nearly 10 years.
Mommy always made sure she spent time with the outside doggies every day
and that they always had an air-conditioned and heated room with a doggy door.
Yes, RailRoad had a pampered life.
When we think of RailRoad, we will always remember his zest for life, hatred of cattle, his passion for squeaky toys, and the love of a good meal.
We think the quote that best describes him is "live every day like someone left the gate open".
Sending out lots of love and wet nose kisses to our furriends.
Happy Tuesday and purrs, y'all.
I am so sorry - sometimes we critters just can't stick around long enough. :-(ReplyDelete
We are very sorry to hear about Railroad.ReplyDelete
It does sound like he had a good life.
Purrs to you all.

We have our tails tipped for Railroad and the hole he has left in the family. We wonder if he may have ben part feline as he clearly had more than one life - getting so lucky as to meet your Mommy and then coping with those tablets for that nasty epilepsy for so long. Run freely and chase all those cows up at the Bridge, Railroad!ReplyDelete
We're sorry your pal RailRoad had to go to the Bridge. It sounds like he had a pawsome life with you even with his health issues.ReplyDelete
