If It Should Be....


Hello everyone, Tasha & Eva's Dad here. It is with tears in my eyes, shaking hands, and a hole in my heart that I tell you Tasha crossed the Rainbow Bridge at 2:00 p.m. yesterday. Her breathing had been getting progressively worse and she showed very limited interest in her food or treats. She seemed so sad and we had recently started seeing fear and confusion in her eyes. The latest test came back negative for blastomycrosis. This led the doctors to continue to believe that it was some type of cancer and they could continue to run more tests, but it just didn't seem fair to put her through additional testing when you could tell that she wasn't happy and she was going downhill so fast. Did we do the right thing is always the question. Seeing Tasha the way she has been this few weeks, I'm pretty certain that we did. I think she thought so to because as I held her in my arms, the last thing she did before she went to sleep was to give me a big kiss. Yes, I totally lost it there. I hope that was a sign from her that she knew she was going to better place where she can breathe easy and run without pain.



Here are some of our favorite shots of Tasha. First Night at Furever Home.


Keeping an Eye on New Dad.

Loving Snow at 12 Weeks Old



Tasha wasn't an only dog for long. Tia arrived in December 1998 to keep her company.


Showing Tia How to Attack Momma.



Resting Between Puppy Training.



A Little Rasslin'!




A Favorite Place to Relax.



Together at the Rainbow Bridge with Tia and Lola
Tia went to the Bridge in January of 2003 when she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in multiple organs.



Tasha loved everyone and loved to go to the dog park, on walks and to go on other adventures. She thought everyone existed to pet her and rub her belly. Yet she was very protective of us and her house.


Saying "HI!!!" to Jeff. The Tails a Blur. Happy? OH YEA!



With Momma at the Renaissance Fair.


Hi Buddies, Nice to Meet You!


Socializing with Both the Pups and the Bipeds.


Playful Puppy.



Tasha loved to help.


Helping With the Leaves.




Helping Scoop Snow.



I think that playing in or just laying in the snow was Tasha's favorite pastime. She had to have been part husky.



Lovin' It.



Gotta Roll!!



Is There a Ball in Here?


Cooling Off on a Hot Day.

Tasha loved her pool almost as much as snow. She would get so excited when her pool came out every spring. She would spin in circles with her head in the water and her mouth open. Her head would come up with water streaming off her and her tail wagging furiously.


Happy Girls at the Dog Park.




Tasha

September 1997-May 24, 2008


Rest in peace and play pain free. We will miss you terribly.


Vicky and I want to once again thank all of you that have been so supportive through this extremely hard time. Your prayers, thoughts, comments, and Sibe Vibes have been felt and appreciated more than we can say. Thank you all so very much.

Tasha's Loving Momma and Dad,

Vicky and Doug




If It Should Be

If it should be that I grow weak

And pain should keep me from my sleep,

Then you must do what must be done,

For this last battle can not be won.



You will be sad, I understand.

Don't let the grief then stay your hand.

For this day, more than all the rest,

Your love for me must stand the test.



We've had so many happy years.

What is to come can hold no fears.

You'd not want me to suffer so:

The time has come--please let me go.



Take me where my need they'll tend,

And please stay with me till the end.

Hold me firm and speak to me,

Until my eyes no longer see.



I know in time that you will see

The kindness that you did for me.

Although my tail its last has waved,

From pain and suffering I've been saved.



Please do not grieve--it must be you

Who had the painful thing to do.

We've been so close, we two, these years;

Don't let you heart hold back its tears.

Now why have we had T&E's blog open all day? Trying to read through and catch up? But couldn't decide what to write.

And then we looked at the Bone Zone. Saw your post and came back to read this.

So sorry we have not been around enough for Tasha these last few weeks. We haven't been around much at all.

But she will always be in our hearts. We have her beautiful photo, which we will have forever, and maybe now is the time to put her in our album.

We know how you feel, but that is no consolation. Just sending whatever sympathy and condolences we can over the airwaves. Really don't know what to say so sorry if this sounds so clumsy.

Sweet, sweet Tasha.

Pippa, Kate and Adrian.

Carol said...

I am so sorry and crying here with you. You did the right thing for Tasha. You loved your little puppy with your whole heart and gave her a life that was wonderful.

When she appeared in your life it was because God sent you one of His angels so you would know the incredible beauty of Heaven. You were chosen as special and lived up to that special label by giving her a love that she would have never know without you.

Carol, Aja, and Flurry

Your love and commitment to such a sweet gal as Tasha is a wonderful tribute to dogs everywhere. We are so sorry to hear that Tasha is no longer with you in body. We're sure her spirit remains strong, as does her love. Dogs may live fewer years than humans, but they sure make the most of every moment! May your wonderful memories help you through this time of loss.

Dear Vicky, Doug & Eva -

Randi's mom here...I had to step away from the computer for a bit to collect myself & cry into a box of tissues for a while...Oh my - 'sorry' just seems like such a small, meaningless little word when your heart is broken in two...But we are sorry...so sorry for the loss of Beautiful Tasha...so sorry for all the pain you will feel in the coming days & weeks & months...& so sorry for the loss of Eva's companion...But we are also so thankful that you were able to give Tasha such a wonderful & loving home...we are so thankful you will have memories to smile back upon...& so thankful that you will have Tasha to hold in your hearts forever...even when you wish you could still hold her in your arms...

Please know that we are thinking of all of you...Tasha was such a beauty & we are better people/dogs for knowing her.

Please feel free to email me if you need to talk... randithelabnewf@hotmail.com

We're so very sorry to hear this news. You're all in our thoughts today. We know how very difficult these moments are. They have a way of telling us that it's time and it's a message that breaks our hearts. She's with our other beloved friends waiting to see us all again one day at Rainbow Bridge.

We heard about Tasha over at Rocky's and we just had to come by, even though we never met her. She sounds like a wonderful woofie and we know you are missing her terribly.

We send {{{{HUGS}}}} to all - Eva and her mom & dad.

Kapp pack said...

Wow, not what we expected to hear so soon. Tasha was one of our first blogging friends and we always feel a special kinship b/c our mom's stepdad is from Minnesota. Prayers and candles lit here at the Kapp Pack house.

Tasha can run free pain north of the bridge.

Sad woos, Kelsey Ann, Sky boy, and Canyon

Joe Stains said...

We are so sorry to hear about Tasha. We sure do not know what to say but we hope just by saying we are thinking of you that helps a tiny bit.

Holly said...

As tears stream down my cheeks, the words just cannot explain just how sad, and sorry I am for you all.

I had so hoped to some day come and play with you in your lovely doggie parks, and roll in the beautiful Minnesota snows. I still hope to make it up there one day to say hello to Eva.

Tasha, we will meet some day at the bridge, and I promise to run and play with you then.

Hugs to you all, as I will keep you in my thoughts.

Holly

Dogmom's crying and she said that Tasha went over the rainbow bridge. We're really sorry, but glad that we got to meet her at Dog Pad an help her have some happy times there while you were on vacation. We hope that someday the hole in your hearts will be full of all the happy memories of what she brought into your lives.

We are so sorry to hear of Tasha's journey to the Rainbow Bridge. Don't doubt for a moment what you did. She told you what she needed and wanted and you helped her end her pain. She is running free of pain and is wearing her Silver Harness with pride. Please give Eva a kiss for me and a hug too. Know that we will have you in our thoughts and prayers in the coming days, weeks, and months. Time will heal, just let it.

Oh I am so sorry. I have not been around much, my humans have been very busy so I have not been blogging much. I am so sorry, Tasha and Eva were some of my first blog friends. Our thoughts are with you and Eva. I know there are many sweet doggies that were waiting to greet Tasha at the Rainbow Bridge. I know you did the right thing for her.

I'm so sorry to hear about Tasha. Looking at all the pics, she had great love and fun with your family. I'm sure she's making friends with my big brother herbie at the rainbow bridge now.

Take care.

I haven't been here in a while and then I saw the sad news on the Brat Pack's blog. We are so sorry to hear that Tasha has crossed the bridge. When our mom read about her goodbye kiss her eyes started leaking. Hugs to you and Eva.

Our hearts break with yours. Sending soft Husky woos to help guide Tasha to the Bridge. Bless you during this difficult time.

Bama said...

Tears are rolling down my face, I had so hoped that the news for sweet Tasha would turn out differently, but you, who knew her the best, have to trust that you understand what she's telling you. It takes a LOT of love to be able to give that gift, and to think of her instead of yourselves. We share your sorrow, I'm sorry just doesn't seem to say it.
Run free sweet Tasha.
Love

Oh my gosh, I'm practically in tears reading the whole post! I'm so awfully sorry about your dog Tasha. Sorry that I didn't get to meet her & be her friend earlier on. She had a wonderful 11 years with you guys. Maybe it was just time. If only we dogs could live longer, sigh...So sorry once again.

Love licks,

So sorry to hear. We're so sad. Making a decision like that isn't easy. But please take comfort in knowing that Tasha is no longer suffering. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Sparky said...

Doug and Vicky,

I (Lizzy, Sparky's human) honestly broke into tears the moment you said that the last thing Tasha did was give you a big kiss before she died.

I really never realized how much I've grown to love Tasha and Eva through reading their blog until now. Even though I knew Tasha wasn't doing very well, it still came as a shock to me to hear that she left us... I'm not afraid to admit that I am crying as I type this, but I know I still can't even begin to imagine how you all must feel. I honestly don't know what I'll do when Sparky's time comes... Which hopefully won't be for a long time yet...

I want to let you know that I am going to spend a lot of time praying for you guys over the next few days... It was time for Tasha to go, and God has welcomed her into the new and painless life in heaven. I'll be praying that God will comfort you both through this sad time...

Eva, it must be hard for you too, girl. I hope you're doing your part to help comfort your humans!

We love you all,

Lizzy, Sparky, and family.

It's us again, when you feel up to it, stop by our blog and read our most recent post, we dedicated the first part to Tasha, and to all of you. (Hope you don't mind that we "borrowed" one of your pictures of her). Mama cried again while she was typing it, our hearts go out to you and to sweet Tasha.
Love again & always,

Hello, everyone -

We have only been blogging for a few months and read about Tasha and Eva at Rocky, Bear and Angel Lacylulu's blog.

We are so sorry for your loss.

We have also seen this poem. In fact my (Hershey) groomer gave this to Mama when my older sister went to heaven two years ago. You are in our thoughts. There has been too much pain and sadness lately.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. We hope that you all take care of yourselves and we send love and licks to Eva.

we are so sorry for your loss of beautiful tasha. we came by way of your blog thru randi's blog and are so sad to read this.

it is said that the amount of love you feel for them in life, it is equal to how much it hurts when they have to leave. we very recently suffered the loss of my sister's black lab.

all of our best to you and your family in this most difficult time.

ly said...

I am sorry for your loss.

she was a real beauty. It sure looks like she was well loved and had lots of fun on her walks and adventures.

It was a real hard decision to make and I am sure that tasha felt that you did the right thing. pls take comfort in that she is now without pain and in a happier place along with tia and lola.

She must have enjoyed herself immensely through the 11 years. Tasha was blessed to have you and you to have her.

please take lots of care.

MONA AND THE MOMMY! said...

We are so sorry to hear of your loss. The Mommy lost her Samantha after a long illness 3 1/2 years ago. When it was time to let her go, the Mommny could tell she was ready to go. Sorry we didn't get to know Tasha but we know that now she is pain free and hopefully she, Samantha & all the others dogs we have lost are playing together & laughing at us for crying when they are having such a wonderful time.

God Bless...Mona & the Mommy, Sarah

Jake of Florida said...

We can't say very much 'cause Mom is splashing the keyboard of our computer with those achy tears that come only when she hears one of our pals has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

We only met Tasha a little while ago - but that doesn't matter - we ache for your loss and wish we could be there to help you in your grief.

Sending you wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry, and our Mom, Joan

Sending sad wooos to Tasha's family...
you did the hardest thing any of our humans can, you willingly let Tasha cross the Rainbow Bridge when she needed to. We hear good things about the Rainbow Bridge, as less than a year ago our sweet huskyboy Sherman crossed. (He had cancer too.) Even though humans can't see us once we cross, we do come back & visit. Tasha will look in on you often.

Woos & a-roos,

Ivy said...

We were all so sorry to hear about Tasha but we know that you made the right decision, even though it was difficult. She is in a better place where she can romp and play just like she was a puppy again. We will pray that you all hold each other close and have the support of friends and family as you grieve. Tasha couldn't have had a better furever home or nicer people to love her on this earth.

With kind thoughts and gentle wags,

Dear Eva, Doug & Vicky our hearts are breaking with you. God's Garden called another Beauty home and it is a difficult that with love one must experience grief. Tasha will now watch over you pain free till ya'll meet again. Mommy knows the pain of helping your beloved over the bridge and it was difficult to write you yesterday. We are sorry it was delayed but know we prayed fur all of you and will continue to pray that your heartache will find comfort in all the wonderful memories you have of beutiful Tasha. You made a beautiful tribute and a loving decision.

BenTheRotti said...

Dear Doug, Vicky and Eva,

We are so very sorry for your loss, we have prayed so much for Tasha's recovery and we truly feel your heartbreak right now. It's two years since we had to make the same decision with our darling boy Ben (senior) and just as with Tasha his very last action was to give me a huge kiss before passing peacefully to the bridge in my arms, I truly believe that is their blessing for our decisions, their gentle acknowledgement that they are ready. Tasha will always be with you all in spirit and her memory will warm your hearts always. I wish i could lessen the physical pain for you I really do.
We are all here for you should you need anything at all.

Run free, happy and pain free at the Bridge dearest sweet Tasha,
May you have sunshine, snow and water filled pools whenever you desire them.
RIP sweet girl, you are sadly missed and a piece of you will live on in many hearts eternally.

Sue, Ben & Family.

We are so sorry for your loss. This is a beautiful tribute to a loved member of the family. You have done the right thing for Tasha even though your hearts are overflowing with pain.

Summit the Super Mal said...

So very sorry that it took us so long to get here and send our hugs. These are difficult times. Difficult for those of us trying to find the right words and difficult for you who are missing her so. Know that she will be fondly remembered by her fur-iends and know that we will keep Eva, Mom and Dad in our thoughts. Do not doubt that you did the right thing. While our heart wants to keep them with us forever, we know that the hard decision to let them go is ours and while so very very hard, is the last compassionate act we can offer.
We send blowin' coat Husky hugs and sloppy Mal kisses for your tears from Iowa.

We always read, though not comment, but this time we had to say that we are very very sorry for your loss. Mama's eyes are leaking, and there have been howl-fests to guide Tasha on her way to the Bridge, where she will play and be young again while she watches over you.

Soft howls and woos,

Hi, I am Verdi the dog.. And I am sorry much what Tasha. Is well-read this nice post, and my boss says that Tasha look like to my twin sister. Not only look like physically to my, but in her taste as the snow.
We regret not having known her before. To the chiefs and to Eve, we send all our love, and fondness. We know that Tasha to be happy expecting of all us.

We are sorry that you have lost one of your family members. I couldn't imagine how that must feel.

We agree with you that the spirit does seem to still be here. I hope that give you great comfort.

Our thoughts and husky love go with you from Maine.

Amici said...

We are very sad to hear of the loss of your family member, Tasha. Reading how she gave you kiss right before she passed brought tears to our eyes. We believe that dogs really do go to heaven and we hope she is having a blast up there.

We hope the memories and spirit of Tasha will be around you.

Lots of love from Maine.
