Pet Memorial Day

 
Today is
Pet Memorial Day
 
A day to remember your dear pets
that have gone on to wait at the Rainbow Bridge
 
 
 
White Chang was Mom's very first Pug
She was an older pug whose
family no longer wanted her
and Mom jumped at the chance
to give her a loving home
She quickly became devoted to Mom
As her eyesite failed she would smell everyone
 till she found Mom.

 
White Chang left for the bridge in 1990
Mom had her favorite photo of her turned
into a cross stitch pattern and this hangs on
the wall in her bedroom
 
 
After Char Shu went to the Rainbow Bridge,
Mom put together this memorial picture of
the original PugRanch Kids
 

 
Clockwise from upper left
 
Char Shu   06/13/1992 - 08/12/09   17 yrs
Mao Yen  11/23/89 - 12/07/02  13 yrs
McKenzie 09/01/93 - 11/28/05  12 yrs
Pugsley 06/16/92 - 10/25/06  14 yrs
 
 
there is one more
12/22/2011 - 03/02/2012
 
It is still too hard for Mom
so there are no pictures on the wall
maybe someday
But her name is on a rock in
the Memorial Garden that is outside
 
We will show you pictures of that tomorrow
 
We are the PugRanch Kids
Bailey, Hazel & Greta

What a lovely memorial! Your momma has sure opened her heart to a lot of pugs. I bet White Chang is sure proud of her legacy.

This made me shed tears. I'm a bit sensitive when it comes to remembering pets who have died. My almost 11 year old dog has been dead since january but he is still in my thoughts and in my heart. I have never stopped thinking and loving him. It was the first time i had a dog with me for 11 years. Anyway, that was a really beautiful and touching tribute. I'm sure, wherever white chang is and her pugs are happy knowing that they were showered with much love and attention.
