Bonner: The Rainbow Bridge is a Better Place

BONNER V. ~ July 19th,2001 - May 2, 2014
(This water color is by artist D.J.Rogers, a California artist. We found it online.)

Our good friend and next door neighbor, Bonner, had inoperable cancer in his jaw and has been hanging on to life for several months now, keeping comfortable. The poor fellow's face had a grapefruit sized tumor, but he didn't let it affect his cheerful personality.  He always wagged his tail and went for walks with his mama and daddy each day, greeting us with joy.  Last Friday he no longer had that sparkle in his eyes that said he wanted to carry on.  His mommy fixed him his favorite meal, scrambled eggs & cat food for breakfast.  The 2 grandsons came over to have one last marshmallow roast with him at the fire-pit, which was his favorite activity with the boys. Sharing roasted marshmallows...most pleasurable.  He had a wonderful morning doing things that he loved, with the people he loved.  In the early afternoon his doctor came to his home and Bonner, beautiful, big, yellow Labrador went to the Rainbow Bridge.  We are all sad, but know that we will see him again some day, and he will be running and jumping and smiling his big Lab smile at the reunion.

Run free buddy.  You were a good boy.

This is Trixie and Lily! We started our new blog (in case you don't recognize our ID, that is why.) SO sorry to hear about your neighbor dog! When Sammy died the doctor came to our house also, and it was much better that way, very peaceful for Sammy-Joe and more comforting for Mama.
