Memories of Mitsi
Mitsi~I know now that I made the right decision in letting you go on to a better place where you are no longer suffering. I will always remember the many memories I have of you and I together, from you running down the hall at night to come to bed with me, to you acting like you haven't yet had your bone so I would give you another one, to you sniffing the flowers on the back deck. I know one day we will be together again as we cross over the rainbow bridge together. Until then, I know you are my guardian angel looking down on me. Thank you for being my best friend and a loving member of our family. We love you so much Mitsi. RIP. Love, all of us, your Moms (Tasheena and Sabrina), Dad, Trevor, Tapanga and Gidget xoxoxo

Nov. 26, 2009-Happy Thanksgiving Mitsi! I hope you are having a fun time up in heaven. I wanted to let you know that your Moms, Dad, Trevor, Tapanga and Gidget are very thankful to have had you in our lives. We are also thankful for the many memories we hold of you and will cherish them forever. We love you very much. It has been difficult without you being physically here but you are with us in our hearts and in spirit. So many people have left their kind words here at your Rainbow Bridge Residency. We, too are grateful for such compassionate people who know what it's like to lose a pet. I also wanted to thank you Mitsi for cheering me up recently when I was sad and missing you--I'll never forget how I felt when I saw that rainbow. I know it was you telling me not to be sad and that you are doing fine. I love you. Love Always, all of us xoxoxo ps...Today is Tapanga's birthday! She's 14 years old!

Dec. 13, 2009-Hello Mitsi. I wanted to come by and say hello. I'm thinking a lot about you tonight as Christmas will soon be here and it will be our first Christmas apart. I just have to keep reminding myself you are here, in my heart and will always be in my heart. The family came down to Columbus to visit me and Adam today. Mom says Tapanga is having trouble seeing, but Gidget stays with her outside and looks after her, just like you always did for them. You taught Gidget well! Anyways, I love you so much Mitsi. We all do. Hope you are doing well. Love, all of us. xoxoxo

Dec. 25, 2009-Good morning Mitsi and Merry Christmas!!! I hope you and your new friends have a wonderful Christmas. It's hard having our first Christmas without you physically here but I know your spirit is here and as I always say, you will always be in my heart. We opened gifts last night on Christmas eve instead of this morning. We all wanted to sleep in. I got Tapanga and Gidget some yummy chewy salmon treats. You would have liked them. And mom made scrambled eggs like always for the dogs, too. But I'm sure you get all kinds of good stuff in heaven! :-) Mom and dad got me a necklace with a picture of you and Stanky engraved on it. It's so pretty. Oh, and we watched an old video tape that dad had filmed from when we first got you. You were sooo tiny and cute! We were at the old house and you couldn't get up the patio stairs and whimpered. And then inside the house you were laying with me and chewing on your blanket. You were an adorable little puppy and turned into an even more beautiful dog. Well, I should be going. Have to get ready in a bit for Christmas with the rest of the family here in Findlay. We love you so much Mitsi and hope you have a very merry Christmas! Love, all of us. xoxoxo

Jan. 1, 2010-Happy New Year Mitsi! I hope you had a fun celebration with your friends! I'm not at home today but I'm assuming mom is making sauerkraut like she always does for the new year. Do you remember smelling that all through the house? I didn't really like the smell, haha. Anyways, I'm thinking of you like always and love you very much. Love, all of us. xoxoxo

Feb. 3, 2010-Happy belated birthday Mitsi! I am so sorry I am late. Things have been busy here! I hope you had a wonderful birthday with your friends! Did you get a lot of milk bones :-) I hope so! Oh Adam and I got another dog, a chihuahua like you! He's a boy though. Very little, like 6 pounds! I'm sure you would have been a good friend to him. I miss you tons baby. Love, all of us. xoxoxo

Feb. 15, 2010-Happy Valentine's Day Mitsi! Sorry I am a day late. I hope you got lots of heart shaped treats :-) I miss you a lot still, and always will. It still gets really hard at times because I keep wishing I could pet you one more time. But my memories of you provide comfort.... So we ended up returning the Chihuahua. I think I was allergic and we weren't sure it was a good fit, but mom got one! Her name is Libby. Sounds like you would have liked her!! Well I should go. I love you so much. Love, all of us. xoxoxo

March 30, 2010-Thinking of you Mitsi. We love you so so much. xoxoxo

April 4, 2010-Happy Easter Mitsi! I hope the Easter bunny brought you lots of treats! I have been thinking a lot about you tonight and how I wish I could touch you one more time. I hold onto my memories I have of us and it helps, but of course I still always wish you were physically here. I am happy you are in a better place now though, pain free and no longer suffering. I love you always and forever Mitsi, we all do :-) xoxoxo

May 6, 2010-Just checking in to say I love you Mitsi, so much. I wish you were here right now so I could pet you. With it being spring time and seeing flowers outside, it reminds me of how much you loved to smell the flowers on the deck at home. You looked so cute when you did that! I'm sure there are beautiful fields of flowers for you to smell in heaven. I love you. xoxoxo

June 1, 2010-Happy June Mitsi! It's finally been nice and hot here! I've been thinking about you a lot today and missing you but I continue to remind myself you are in a better place with no pain and sunny fields of flowers to smell :-) I love you always. xoxoxo

June 30, 2010-Hello Mitsi! I can't believe it's almost July! I'm 3 days into my internship and really liking it. I get to work with and help so many animals. I know you've been watching over me still. I saw heart shaped clouds twice and know it was you telling me you are okay and that you love me. I love you, too baby always. xoxoxo

July 4, 2010-Happy 4th of July Mitsi! I'm sure you had a nice 4th! I really didn't do anything too exciting. The rest of the family went to Chicago. I worked yesterday so I didn't go. I did see the rest of the family a few weeks ago when I was on summer break from classes. They are doing well. Tapanga, Gidget and Libby say hello! Tapanga is doing well in her old age. Mom says the Vet says she is aging gracefully. :-) I know they love you and miss you, too. Well, I should be going. I love you forever and always. xoxoxo

August 21, 2010-Hello my baby Mitsi. I've missed you so much lately. I think it's because at my internship at the vet clinic I've been around some euthanasias so I'm reminded of when mom and I let you go on to heaven. And then I wonder if we made the right decision letting you go and could we have done more. But then I realize you wouldn't want to keep going on with the quality of life you had. And I know you would have hated going to the Vet more and more. But like I've said over and over, even though you are in a place where you are no longer suffering, I still miss you and always will. I'd do anything to be able to pet you just one more time. Someday we will all be together and I'll be able to. :-) Oh, mom's birthday is Monday! Send her love, I know you will. Take care Mitsi, I will talk to you later. I love you. xoxoxo

September 14, 2010-Hello Mitsi. I can't believe it's been 1 year since you crossed the rainbow bridge. For some reason I was thinking it was tomorrow, I'm sorry! It has definitely been a rough year without you. There are times I think I am doing fine and then other days my grief will consume me and all I do is sit in my bedroom and cry, wishing I could pet you one more time. I still treasure all the memories we have together and think about those often. I have 2 great dogs now-adopted Bandit last week. I wish you were here so you could play with them. You'd like Bandit. He's a crazy, goofy guy. And of course you know Rusty aka Stanky. He's been great whenever I get down about you. He doesn't leave my side and licks my tears away. I am so grateful for that. I'm graduating from the Vet. Tech. program in March hopefully and I still work at the Humane Society. I've been able to help a lot of animals. It's tough though dealing with dog's who pass or have renal failure. Of course I always think of you then. I'm happy though to be helping so many animals. I know you are proud of me. So how are things going at the rainbow bridge? You probably have so many friends and flowers to smell! I bet it's absolutely gorgeous there. Do you think of all of us often? I'm sure you do. We feel your love every day. When it is my time to go I will look forward to being with you again. Thank you again Mitsi for all the love and memories you gave me. I will cherish them forever. Btw, Tapanga and Gidget are doing well. I know they miss and love you lots, too! You were like a mother to them and I know you will be a mother to them (including Libby!) when you are all together again. I love you soooo much Mitsi. xoxoxo

October 17, 2010-Hello Mitsi! Thank you for shining down on me today during my 3rd 1/2 marathon. I felt you with me and you helped tremendously in getting me to the finish line. This race was for you! I wore the necklace of you mom and dad got me for Christmas last year. I love you so much Mitsi. Thank you again. xoxoxo

November 1, 2010-Happy November Mitsi! And happy belated Halloween! The other day I was at work and a dog came in that was a Rat Terrier I believe and it looked so much like you. Her name was even Mitsi, only I think it was spelled Mitsee. Of course I thought of you right away. I still think of you all the time. Sometimes I get angry that you aren't physically here and sometimes I just get sad. I know that's all part of the grieving process though. I just have to remind myself you are no longer suffering and that makes me happy. I love you Mitsi, so much. xoxoxo

November 15, 2010-Hello Mitsi! Yesterday was Dad's 50th birthday. Mom turned 50 in August. I know you are sending them lots of love. My friend had to put her cat to sleep. I've been comforting her since I know what she is going through. Just like I feel your love shining down on me, I know she will feel her cat's love, too. Take care of her loved one who is in heaven with you. Her name is Lingsu. I'm sure you two will become good friends. I love you Mitsi. xoxoxo

November 25, 2010-Happy Thanksgiving Mitsi! Today is also Tapanga's 15 birthday! She's doing well and I'm sure misses you lots-and Gidget misses you too! Send lots of love to Tapanga today! I know you always do though! Mom made the dogs scrambled eggs since it was Pangy's birthday. They loved it like always! Today I am grateful for my family, wonderful pets, Adam, and of course all the years I had with you :-) Thank you for wonderful years and memories I have of those years now. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and ate lots of turkey! I love you forever and always. xoxoxoxo

December 25, 2010-Merry Christmas Mitsi! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and got lots of presents and treats! The dogs all got lots of treats and toys here. And Mom made them scrambled eggs this morning. I know you love eggs, too! Tapanga has been sleeping in bed with me at night while I'm here visiting family. I remember when you slept with me, too :-) Tapanga and Libby are doing well, as are my boys-Stanky and Bandit. I wish so much you were physically here with me today but I feel you here with me in spirit and you're always in my heart. And I put together a little photo album of you :-) Tell all your furry friends I said Merry Christmas. I love you forever Mitsi. Merry Christmas! xoxoxoxo

January 1, 2011-Happy New Year my baby Mitsi! I love you. xoxoxo

February 17, 2011-Hello Mitsi! Sorry I forgot to write you on Valentine's day. I was with mom and dad picking out my wedding dress. Adam and I have finally begun wedding planning which is exciting! How was your Valentine's day? I'm sure you got lots of heart shaped treats! I graduate as a Veterinary Technician in about 3 weeks! I'm very excited. I'm sure you saw how bummed we were that the Steelers lost the super bowl. Oh well. Well Mitsi, I'm going to go study and get around for bed. Wish you were going to bed with me tonight. I miss that. I love you girl. xoxoxo

March 9, 2011-Thinking of you Mitsi. I miss and love you so much. xoxoxo

April 5, 2011-I miss you Mitsi. April 10th is Trevor's birthday. Mom and dad celebrated another anniversary last month. I think it's been 30 or more years they have been together. I graduated from the Vet. Tech. program and am working as a Veterinary Technician now. I like it. I wish you were physically here with me. My job has been a little stressful as I learn everything and petting you would make me feel better. But knowing you are watching over me helps, too. Hope you are doing well and I hope you had a nice St. Patrick's day last month! I love you Mity. xoxoxo

May 22, 2011-Hi Mitsi! I hope you had a nice Easter last month! Trevor also celebrated his birthday! Adam and I have bought our first home. It's wonderful. And tonight we saw a rainbow for the first time here. I know it was you saying hello and letting me know you are watching over us. Thank you. Tapanga went to the vet the other day. She's doing well. She will be 16 this year! We all love you and miss you like always. Hope you are having fun and being friends with Adam's sister's dog Molly who recently passed. She's a sweet girl like you. Well, I will talk to you later. I love you so much. xoxoxo

July 25, 2011-Hello Mitsi. I am sorry I have not written you in a few months. I think I am slowly beginning to heal. I don't find myself crying nearly as much. Maybe I have accepted you are in heaven. Of course now that I'm here writing you I'm crying again. But I know you are always watching down on us. Adam and I love our new home still. The dogs love it too. Mom took Tapanga to the vet for blood work and her liver values came back high. She is on medication but so far it has only helped a little. Mom says she seems to be doing fine though. She's just slowed down in her old age. I know when it is her time to go you will take her with you to the rainbow bridge and you'll both look over us all. Please continue to watch over Tapanga now and make sure she is comfortable. I know when she is in pain you will come to get her. You always were like a mother to her. I'll talk to you later Mitsi. I love and miss you so much. xoxoxo

September 9, 2011-Hello Mitsi. How are you? You'll never guess what, Tapanga is doing well! Remember I told you her liver values were high, well then she wasn't eating so I went home a few weekends ago thinking it was time for me to say goodbye...well her blood work all came back normal and she's eating and acting like a pup! I always knew you were her guardian angel. You must have decided it's not her time yet. I miss you a lot Mitsi, especially since it will soon be 2 years since you left for the rainbow bridge. But I can tell I am slowly healing. Of course that doesn't mean I don't think about you or have stopped loving you. I always will. Thank you Mitsi for watching over us all, especially Tapanga. We love you so much. xoxoxo

September 14, 2011-Hello Mitsi. Today is exactly 2 years since you went to the rainbow bridge. It's been a rough 2 years for me but I feel I am slowly beginning to heal. Of course I'll always love you and cherish all we shared together. Still I always wish I could pet you just one more time. I know you are always looking down on us and showering us with love. Mitsi, I want to take this time to thank you for being a great pet and member of our family. You are such a good girl. So loyal and loving. We all love you so much and miss you. I'm going to go light a candle now in your honor. We love you so much. xoxoxo

November 12, 2011-Hello Mitsi. I renewed your residency here at the Rainbow Bridge. While I know you'll always be here, something about letting the web page expire doesn't feel right for me. Not yet anyways. It makes me feel like I am leaving you or forgetting you even though I know you'll always be in my heart. This site gives me some comfort that I have a connection with you even though we always will regardless of this site. Anyways, Tapanga is doing so good mom says. She has been playing with the other dogs and walking all over the house. I know you are watching over her closely and giving her strength and energy to feel like a young pup again! Thank you. How are you doing? I bet you are having a lot of fun, still eating all the bones you want! :-) I miss you baby. And I love you so much. We all do. Take care and I'll talk to you soon. xoxoxo

January 2, 2012-Hello Mitsi! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I'm sorry I am a little late getting on here to tell you that. I hope you got everything you wanted for Christmas! I saw Tapanga and the other girls at Christmas. They are doing well. Especially Tapanga. I can't believe she is 16 years old! I know she is doing well because you are watching over her like you do us all. I was thinking a wonderful gift this year would be to pet you once more. It's sometimes hard to realize that that won't happen until I cross the rainbow bridge someday too. An even better gift is knowing though that you are healthy and happy and shining down on us. I love you so much Mitsi. I hope you know that. Take care. I'll tty soon. xoxoxo

March 3, 2012-Hello Mitsi. I just wanted to drop by and say hello. I'm thinking a lot about you right now because I was working on our "memory table" for our wedding, and we are having a picture of you on it as well. I know you'll be watching down on me when I get married in May. Tapanga is still doing well as are Libby and Gidget. We all miss you so much and hope you are running around flowery fields eating all the bones you want. I love you always. xoxoxo

April 30, 2012-Hello Mitsi. I feel like it has been forever since I have talked to you. Did you know I am getting married in less than 2 weeks! Crazy! I know you'll be watching down on me when I say "I Do". I'm not sure if I told you but at the wedding we are having a memory table set up with framed pictures of family who have deceased. I will have one of you up. I miss you Mitsi. I always think I am doing ok until I get on here to write you and then I always break down. You'll always have a special place in my heart so I know it'll always be hard at times. It's just a matter of accepting you are not physically here. Sometimes I can't accept that. I get angry because it's not fair you aren't here. Maybe we should have done more. But in the end we made an unselfish decision to let you go peacefully. And so now I know I should be happy you aren't suffering but are young and healthy again watching over me. That does make me happy. I just go backwards in the grieving process sometimes and get angry, but I suppose that is part of the process. Anyways, what's important is that I love you and always will. You are the best little girl dog :-) xoxoxo ps...I put a bouquet of daisies on here because we'll have daisies at our wedding. I will think of you when I see them :-)

September 14, 2012--Hello Mitsi. Today is the 3 year anniversary since you left for the Rainbow Bridge. I miss you so much, and always will. Adam and I's wedding was perfect. I know you were watching down on us when we said "I Do." Tapanga is doing good still! I know you send your love to her every day, just like you do all of us. I got a job at the OSU Veterinary Hospital in the Oncology department. I will be working with pets with cancer. My love for you will continue to help me do good for other animals :-) Please know even though I have not gotten on here in awhile, it doesn't mean I have forgotten about you. You will always be in my heart. I think I am healing more and more. Maybe I am accepting more that you are in a better place with no suffering. Thank you for being our guardian angel Mitsi. Please know, I love you with all my heart. xoxoxoxo

February 17, 2013--Hello my baby Mitsi. I'm sorry I haven't been on here in awhile. I think I am healing more and more each day and accepting you are in a better place. Tapanga is still doing well. She turned 17 at Thanksgiving! Of course she is very feeble but is hanging on. I know when her time comes to cross the rainbow bridge you will be there to guide her. Everyone here is doing well. I love being married and my new job is going well. I hope you had a very nice Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Valentines with lots of treats! I love you so much. xoxoxo

September 14, 2013--My baby Mitsi, today is 4 years since you crossed the rainbow bridge. I still miss you so much and would give anything to pet you once again. As you know Tapanga is getting very feeble in her old age and I know it will soon be time for her to join you. Please continue to watch over her and take her with you when it is her time. Thank you Mitsi for being the best little dog. I love you always and forever. xoxoxo

November 11, 2013--On September 20, My parents and I made the difficult decision to let Tapanga cross the Rainbow Bridge to be with you. I am so happy you two are together again, young, healthy and so full of life. While it was difficult to say goodbye, I know she is in a better place now, feeling much better than she did here. Thank you Mitsi for watching over her and allowing her to be with you now. I know I now have 2 guardian angels watching over me. Mitsi and Tapanga I love you both so much, and you will both always be in my heart. Thank you Tapanga for all your years of lap time and companionship. You two are the best little doggies anyone could have. xoxoxoxoxoxo

September 13, 2014--Tomorrow, 9-14, will be 5 years since you crossed the rainbow bridge. I miss you so much Mitsi but I know you and Tapanga are together watching over us all. I know one day I will be with you both again. I hope you are running around and playing together and eating all the bones you want. I love you both. xoxoxoxoxoxox
