Brinksy winksy to join the fearless five

We just wanted to let everyone know that we have made the gut wrenching decision to help brinks over the rainbow bridge tomorrow. We can not be selfish and he has let us know that ITS TIME. The chemo has not been working and his tumor has actually enlarged over the last days. We can tell he is in a lot of pain and has started to refuse food. We think it is because he is in a great deal of pain and the pain medicine may not be working anymore as the tumor has gotten bigger. We have each spent a night with him and explained to him that we love him and his pain will soon end. We have said we are sorry that there is nothing that can heal him. Both me and my mom will be there tomorrow holding his paw when the time comes. Please keep us in your prayers tomorrow as this has already been a terrible month and tomorrow will be heartbreaking. We love you all that continue on the journey with us after all that we have been through. Bella the original of the pittie pack will be taken care of with extra care as she has been attached to him since we rescued her. Brinks was the one who "welcomed" her into the pack and never left her side until now. Please let some of our fur blogging friends know if you can so we can all lift him up tomorrow when it's his time to be reunited with our precious Fearless Five.

Oh, Brinks. I just can't hardly believe that we have to say goodbye for now. We are going to miss you soooo much and we know your mommish and daddy and brudders are gonna miss you even more. We know that you comforted your mommish after the Fearless Five crossed the Bridge. And we know that when you cross the Bridge yourself, there will be a big pawty and lots of pibble sugars when you see them again.

We are sending your Most Sweet family lots of hugs and love and kisses. We think you are very lucky to have had such a beautiful life with them.

Gentle crossings, my furend.

Oh, Brinks... I will hold you in my heart tomorrow as you make your journey. And I will hold your family there in the moments, days and weeks following because I know you will be running free with the fearless 5 and taking your seat next to them to watch over your family. We love you Brinks. Lots of smoochies and hugs headed to you and your family.

Bless you Sandra, Josh, and mom for taking care of Brinksy and letting him go in a painfree manner.
Kisses and Hugs,
Mama Mindy
P.S. I know how hard it is to help a baby over the bridge...its the separation that hurts the most...that and knowing they were in pain prior to doing the thoughtful act.

Dearest Brinks!!

Mommy's heart is broken in two once again. She has been trying for weeks to get through to your Mommy and now this.

Last we heard you were better but now you well be with the Fearless Five. Mommy misses Shelby so much, and all the others too and I miss my Tiger. Please give them all hugs from me and Mommy. You were always her favorite pittie boy and she will miss you and keep close in her heart next to Weenie. Goodbye dearest Brinks.

Cynthia Pibble Geremia said...

Oh, Sandra, I'm so sorry. I haven't been following my blog friends as closely as I should have been, and I didn't know Brinksy was sick. I know he and Bella brought you so much comfort when you needed it most. Now, you'll give him the comfort and release he needs at this time. Hugs to all of you, especially Brinks. My Lucy and Trouper, along with all of my babies I've lost over the years, will be ready to welcome him to his new world. {hugs}

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

We don't get to comment online much anymore due to mama health issues, but we just had to send our love to Brinksy and to the family. We're glad for Brinksy that his life was so filled with love with his family here, and will continue to be filled with love when he rejoins the family waiting on the other side of the Bridge. Hugs to you all in this painful time.

It is a terrible thing to lose a friend. I lost my foster-cat, Bear-Bear, a few weeks ago. He was a very close chum of mine. It is a terrible thing. Godspeed, Brinsky.
