We have lost two special animals this past month, ones I’d written to you about, and I’d like to remember them here, now that they are back amongst the angels. If we did this all for them alone, it was worth it. And I hope they know that someday when we meet again.
Chubbs had a good life with us when she almost died, at 14-years-old. We thought we would lose our cherished old friend. But thanks to our intensive care, and her fighting to return to those who truly love her, Chubbs made it. Then, a year later, there was this moment of rubbing and drooling that made my heart sing! Chubbs past away from an embolism at 16-years-old last week. There is an empty space in our hearts.
I rescued Romeo and his sister Juliet in 1999. They were together every moment of their lives.
When Juliet passed away in her sleep last year, I though Romeo had lost the will to live. But then I asked him to help Raisin, a dog with cancer in her final months, and he did. He took care of Raisin until his heart broke a second time. Then his weak heart gave out last week, and now he’s with his sister and his friend again.
When our animals pass away, we cremate them and their remains are stored safely in our concrete basement. All of them. I will put Juliet’s and Raisin’s boxes together with Romeo’s so they will all be together again here on this planet, as well as spiritually.
I just realized that this work is so painful that I expect my own heart will just give out one day, like Romeo’s, and I WILL see all my friends again. Otherwise it will be a huge disappointment.
But that’s not for a few decades more. Meanwhile, there are lots of lives to save. So let’s all grow old together! I will keep fighting for these precious animals, rescuing them, and caring for them at our mountain-top sanctuary as long as you keep supporting this mission.
To be sure they will continue to be cared for after we’re gone, please make our animals beneficiaries in your estate and insurance plans as I have done. If you want to know more about wills, insurance, trusts, etc., or if you want a free second opinion from our lawyer, just call 661-269-4010.
And please, never forget these two angels, Chubbs and Romeo.
