We said goodbye to our boy Flex tonight. My life changed that day in 2005 when we found him in the pound. I have never loved a dog like I love Flex. In my heart I know he is no longer suffering. He was a fighter ; bouncing back from many serious illnesses to continue to drive me crazy! I will miss him so...to my best boy...I love you.

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Oh Donna I am so sorry for your loss. Flex is at peace now after a hard and valiantly fought battle. Thank you for having the courage to let your angel go. I will hold my girls extra tight tonight in Flex's memory. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Regards from Deb, Allie (6/1/07), and Riley (2/20/09)

You are all in our thoughts and prayers. I know that no words can help with this pain, but know we are here for you. Flex is finally free from the pains and hindrances that his body had been building up, and is now running unburdened, looking forward to the time he will be reunited with you once again.

Oh, I know this is hard. Our Jet passed away one month ago today. I am sure he is busy at the Rainbow Bridge right now trying to be Flex's best friend. So sorry for your loss. I know how much you love him, and Flex knows that, too!

No words can erase the sadness you feel, but may it help to know there are others who understand and care.

I am so sorry for your loss, especially at this time of year. Hugs to you. Know that Flex and Neba and running around together on the other side of the bridge and you did the best thing for Flex by letting him go. It is a terribly hard decision but he is no longer in any pain now. It is such a sad thing to let them go.

I was afraid I was going to find this post today. I have been avoiding it......and I can't read what everyone posts or I will begin sobbing at my desk.

Donna, my heart aches with you. The pain of loosing a precious creature like Flex is nearly unbearable. I hope that sweet memories of happier times can bring you some comfort during this difficult time.
