Time Out to Say Good-Bye - from Cooper

Our pal Rascal left us yesterday and headed to the Rainbow Bridge. We didn't have time to say good-bye and our hearts are very sad tonight. We told the squirrels they could win tonight because we just don't want to fight. Tonight we remember how fun Rascal was - he was a rescue too and he made his pawrents so happy in Iowa when he came to live with them. He was just 12 years old - but for a corgi, a good, long life.

We met Rascal on Dogster.com and while we never met in person, because he lived in Iowa and we hang out in Oregon, we felt like he was an old friend. We dog-mailed and shared pictures and got to be great pals. So we say "Good-bye" old friend! We will see you on the Bridge in the twinkling of an eye. Lots of prayers for your parents tonight - but don't worry, we will take good care of them for you. Love, Dozer, Dottie and Cooper

Such a majestic pose from such a naughty corgi! BOL!

Rascal and his Mum on their steps. Don't they look like quite the pair?

And look at the Halloween decorations!
Rascal got lots of holidays in with his parents!

Looking good in a new scarf!

That wonderful Corgi smile that shines down from the bridge tonight!

I am so sorry for Rascal's parents. I know that he is in a better place, but I also know that they will miss him terribly. My Mom and Dad miss MY Mama and Daddy a lot still, and I know my Mom worries about me.

I had a brother named Rascal. He was a black tri like my Mama and he was hit by a car when some kids let him out of his yard on Christmas Eve. He was only a year or so old and his owner was devastated. It can be even harder when you have spent a long time with your friends.

Mom says that she will say a prayer for his parents. OC

Am so sorry to hear that someone lost their beloved corgi kid.
I dread the day our aging corgis go across the rainbow bridge. Until them, we're enjoying every moment.

I'm so sorry and so late in catching up. It's so awful to lose a living, warm "being" - almost human, that you've lived with so long. You posted some wonderful photos with captions in memory of Rascal. Fly free now, you sweet pup.
Hugs xo
