Remember Guinness?
Her mummy smsed my Pa this afternoon to inform him that Guinness passed away at 3.40am this morning. It was very quick. Guinness experianced pain at about 3am...and moved on soon after. Some sort of a genetic heart disease.

It was only a short time ago I featured her... last month in fact. Pa and I were planning to go see her soon actually. This has been a terrible month for us puppies. Its really hard to see why this has to happen. Guinness I'm sure has gone to a better place. And it would be there she waits to reunite with her mummy again.

The Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Hi Bear,
This is terrible.. so many deaths in the doggy community (Sparker, Cody and now Guiness).. Although I don't know them personally, it is just so sad, sad, sad...
