and be young again as you make your way to the Rainbow Bridge, no aches no pains, and in the company of so many who've gone before you and suffer no more.
Sadly, Old Mister was not able to be adopted out b/c of so many health issues.
There was a nice gal who was willing to take him into her rescue and she had a perfect foster home in mind until she learned of the many things that afflicted poor Old Mister.
Money was not the issue, as we could have tried to raise enough for his care, and many were willing to donate to help this guy, but the nice gal pointed out to me that she didn't know if she would put her own 12 year old dog through all the necessary poking and prodding to remove broken teeth, do biopsies on the many masses, and surgeries. I had to agree, and I think if Old Mister could talk, he would have told us the same.
It truly was a much kinder and far more merciful act to let him go to the Rainbow Bridge, and he did just that on February 26th.... surrounded by loving arms and w/ his dignity in tact.
I'll not forget you Old Mister, and w/ your 2 week stay at the shelter, many feel the very same way. I'm thankful you came into my life, even for such a short time.
To know you was to surely love you.
Thank you to everyone who was kind enough to stop by to read Old Misters story. He didn't have much goin for him, but he had a story, and people who cared to know it.
