I was just looking on an aussie breeder web page and I was looking at
puppies and there you were. I thought that pup has a pull on me. And for
days I just kept looking at you and I knew there was a reason. Phofer
knew I needed some sweet pup and he knew you were the one in so many
ways. When we drove all that way to get you and I seen you I was so
excited. And when you were in my arms I felt that you were not well. We
took you to the vet and he told me you were not a healthy pup. My heart
just stopped. They were not sure what it was, but that night we found
out. That week when we just about lost you, I tried to be strong, but you
were just a baby. My nine week old fuzz ball. As you got over being sick
then the bad stuff showed. I was not prepared for seizures. I cried
every time you had one. Through the first year, you were a tough pupper. I
took so many pictures of you, I wanted as many pictures of you that I
would always see you in every stage of your life. I was so proud of you
my beautiful Aussie boy. My favorite one was when I took you to Pets mart
for Christmas pictures. They thought you were so beautiful. We was first
in line and they took about eight shots of you and Santa. I didn't know
that would be your only Christmas. Your seizures came more and more and
there were so many at a time. Clusters were what they were. Splatter
never got to be a puppy because of being so ill. He just learned to wag
his butt, cause Aussies' have no tails to wag. The vet worked so hard to
use all his treatments to get you better. I thought the acupuncture and
herbs would beat this. But in October you went for a treatment, and you
acted so funny ever. I knew something was not right. The fifteenth of
October 2009 you started seizing and seized for 4 days. The vets worked so
hard and nothing was working. I knew you were not long for this world.
Daddy called me and I had that bad feeling and I was right. Ultimately I
made that loving choice to let you go because you were dying. Mommy was
holding you, my big boy, when you left this earth. I'm so sorry that we
cold not fix you my love. Your buddy Dr. Nickles and Adiranne were all
so sad. You were our broken baby that was only with us for two years, but
the love Cory, Mom and Dad felt for you is still so strong and we still
you are with us. Splatter, mommy looks at you every day and I would have
done this all again because the love I feel for you is a very deep and
forever love, my sweet Bobby (this was his nickname).
Mommy, Cory and Daddy
When the waves of Sorrow lap at your feet,
And they work up to your heart.
Silver hued tears run down your cheeks,
And naught but sadness does impart.
Think of this place called Rainbow�s Bridge,
And the wondrous glory there.
A silent shadow looks down from a ridge,
And stands on edge your hair.
What is this wondrous graceful sound I hear,
That whispers to me on the breeze?
It is a sound that whispers peace,
And fills my heart with ease.
Is this my love that comes to me,
And whispers on the breeze?
It seems to say feel not guilt,
Listen to my whispers please.
Daddy, mommy, I Love You,
Forever and one day.
In your heart feel not blue,
Just listen to what I say.
I speak to you with sounds of love,
From high upon this ridge.
I wait for you to come above,
I�m happy at Rainbow Bridge.

We reached a fork on a quiet woodland path
One quiet afternoon on a beautiful rainbow filled day
I was unaware as we began our peaceful walk
We were on separate paths and each go a different way
Had I known this was to be our last walk together
As we shared a blissful morning and a cozy afternoon
Would I have planned for the day another way
Knowing that our journey together would end this soon?
But perhaps this is how it really needs to be
By not knowing it was a good day, free of pain
So I hold to the memories of our time together
And remember you until our paths will cross again.
And had I but known how the day would go
I could have prepared for what came my way,
But it would have clouded the time with sadness
And taken away from us one last perfect day.
In my dreams I see your eyes glowing
with love and feel you near
I see you in the clouds running free and
racing the wind. In the mirror of
my heart I see your eyes looking back
at me with all the love
I feel for you. I hear you whisper
of the sweet memories that I hold dear
In my dreams you send the colours of
the rainbow, so I can see
you are happy and near
I still see in your eyes the person you
know I could be and each step I take
I try to be that person. Eyes
of love glowing in the night
bringing peace of heart and healing.
You are the center of my heart and I
feel your gentle touches as you
ask me to find peace Until that day
of reunion feel my kisses sent
to you on the warmth of the sun
My hugs in the colours of the
rainbow. My heart whispers
till we meet again.
Love for you always

Light a candle in Splatter's memory, for a sick, abused, or special needs furbaby,
or perhaps just someone who needs a prayer and a candle lit.
