Dear Dinky, we miss you...

Dear all,
I couldn't find a specific "Rainbow Bridge" forum section, so I just write it here....

Last week, Dinky our 16 year old family dog passed away.
She was a perfect Hav-look-alike (the grey doggy in my signature bar). She was 16 but people who'd see her run and play wouldn't expect her to be older than 7 years....
I can't even remember life before Dinky came to us as a little black pup....

Within a week became extremely ill, her heart and kidneys simply couldn't keep up with her spirit was heartbreaking to so how she was suffering. We had to make the hardest decision every made in our lives, we had to let her go.....
While she was on my sister's lap who cuddled her intensly, while I held Dinky's face close to mine, looking in her eyes, saying sweet words to her, the vet released her of her pain......We've cried for hours....and daily every since.... In Summer we'll visit the beach she loved so much, and spread her ashes there....
I still find it surreal, even though I don't live at my mum's anymore, I'm there daily....and everytime I see the empty spot on the couch, it breaks my heart.... Baileys will run up to me and greet me....Dinky was always close behind....and now she's not....
I'm crying while I write just hurts so much.....

I wrote a poem, I will translate it into English, it won't sound the same, but I'm sure the content will be enough for you to know how much Dinky is missed by my mother, my sisters and I.....

Dear Dinky,
Our sweet loving Granny,
Our attentive and guarding girl,
Our little stinky-Dinky,
Many blessed years we've spent,
Running on the beach,
Splashing around in the sea,
Playing in the garden with your ball,
Basking in the sun,
Chasing blackbird out of your garden,
Playing in the snow,
Always enjoying a ride on the bike,
Irresistable begging for a piece of cheese,
Munching on a yummy toast with meat,
Always actively participating in being a couch potatoe with us,
Playing with your toy-parrot,
“cookie” was a magical word,
At night loudly snoring on the bed,
Even at old age you still surprised us with extensively active play,
Running circles of joy to greet us home,
Noone would have guessed your real age,
You've always stayed young at heart,
You enjoyed Sierra's company,
Having Baileys around made you love life even more,
You lived and loved your life right until your last day,
But then your body couldn't keep up with you any more,
Our hearts filled with pain, we had to let you go....
It was the last thing we could do for you....
A dignified journey to the rainbowbridge, without pain, warmly held in the arms of your family,
We miss you so much,
Your spot on the couch is empty, but your spot in our hearts is filled with beautiful memories of you...
You will always be part of our family...

Until we meet again dear Dinky, we love you.

Suzanne and her Sparkling Sierra, godmother to Dinky (*) and Baileys!

(((Hugs))) Your poem is beautiful as was your dear Dinky. I am so sorry for your loss but your love for her shines through in your post. She was clearly loved and she knew it.
