Dear Alice ... We shall miss you. Quite a bit ...

Dearest Bloggyville,

Our sweet friend Alice, from We are the Rose Jugglers, has made her way over The Rainbow Bridge today.
We are very sad to know that she has left, but happy that she is amongst friends.

She was the first doggie to inspire our mom to get King & Flower.
Our mom loved to take walks with Alice & her mom.
Alice was the first doggie friend King made in the big city & he loved to walk with her.
On every walk, she would sniff everyone's front yard with her wonderful black nose!

Alice's bark was fantastic.
As a beagle mix, she could really get that bark going for all to hear ... Loud & clear.
She enjoyed fuzzy toys & soft blankets to snooze on.

She brought so much joy to her family & all those that met her.
Alice was a truly sweet dog with the most beautiful ears ...

For you Alice this very special poem ...

The Rainbow Bridge
(inspired by a Norse legend)

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.

Lots of love,
The Whippy Curly Tails

PS. We will see you there one day sweet Alice.

We are terribly saddened to hear that sweet Alice has gone to the Bridge. It has been some months since they blogged and we wondered how they all were.

We look forward to more of your news!
