My sweet boy went to the Bridge on Monday, October 26, 2009, less than 1 month after being diagnosed with severe heart disease. We had a cardio consult in the morning & he spent the afternoon at my office, eating part of a turkey sandwich & being fussed over. At 4:30pm, he stood up and staggered. I picked him up, hugged him & he died in my arms.

Hug your iglets - they're gone too soon.

In loving memory of my sweetest, bestest boy:

What a beautiful photo and all my sympathies to you. I've experienced the same, so completely understand the pain you still must feel. I'm glad you've joined the forum and hope to get to know you better.

  • 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.

Regards from Deb, Allie (6/1/07), and Riley (2/20/09)

So, today is both a sad & a happy day for me:

It was one year ago today that my best boy, Tucker, went to the Bridge. Still miss you, baby boy!

But it's also a happy day: today is the 6th birthday of our new boy, Owen! I spoke with Tina Hassett, our animal communicator, in January this year. Tucker told her that we'd get a new IG when the earth turned green again. We met & adopted Owen on March 20th - the 1st day of Spring! Thank you, T!!

My heart goes out to you on the loss of your brilliant talented boy Tucker. Be comforted that you were the last face he saw and voice he heard as he made his final run. Fly free sweet Tucker.
