Ian - Wiggle Butt

Take the paper to mommy

Take the paper to mommy

Ian – CH Foxpoints Thorpedo O’Artik-Sno

He survived his dad, Timmy by seven months,– was taken mercifully instantly as he was barking and chasing the horses through the fence. He was also an AKC Champion, like his dad. We will so miss him watching for the baby deer, the turkeys and most of all taking all the leg room on our bed. He was 11 years, 2 months – and left us much too soon. Who will “take the paper to Mommy”? Bark to warn us of guests – and lay lovingly by our side – Ian wiggle butt - baby “e” – we miss you so much, but know you and Timmy will be waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for us, and we will cross into heaven together.

All our love, Ron and Kathie Isenberg – Deer Park, WA

What a sweet story. And what a beautiful dog! I'm so sorry for your loss. Just keep remembering the joy and happiness you'll experience at the rainbow bridge when you all cross over together. God bless you all.

so sorry for your loss, thank you for sharing him and his sweetness with us. He will be there waiting for you, wiggle butt and all, and maybe a "heavenly" newspaper.

What a beautiful boy! I am so glad you had him for a good many years, but so sad that he is gone. I know where you are.

We had a black tri female, Carly Jo. We loved her dearly - she was funny, so smart and loving. One week before her first birthday she had a gastrointestinal hemorrhage. We don't know what caused it but it was fast. She was fine at 9:00 when I put her in her kennel for night night. We went to bed at 10:00. At 11:00 my husband woke me up and said that she had diarrhea. I literally had to pull her out of her kennel to wrap her in a towel and get her in the car. We rushed her to the ER vet, hazard lights on, horn honking and not stopping for anything. At first, the ER vets thought they had a good chance of saving her, but that quickly vanished. She was just bleeding too fast. So at 2:03 a.m. we held her, told her how much we loved her and petted her as they put her to sleep. That was two years ago this past September. I still cry when I talk about her.

I now have two female Aussies - a blue eyed, blue merle, Bailee Joy, and a brown eyed black tri, Maggie Mae. They are half sisters and just turned two years old. Aussies are absolutely the best dogs I have ever had. The two we have are dearly loved, because we know how much it hurts to lose one - and they helped to fill the void in our hearts left by our Carly Jo.

My heart breaks for you. I wish you luck.

"Wiggle Butt"

Hi, reading your story, I have a wiggle butt waiting for me at the Rainbow bridge also. Plus a few others. So very difficult losing them, I always want to go with them. I have another wiggle butt now and love him also soo much, never thought it would happen, but it did and it will for you also. Aussies are so very special. Everyone who has one or more say the same thing. My Aussie now, is a rescue from a kennel and he is also an angel and love of my life. When the time is right, you will be with another wiggle butt, I promise. God will send one your way. We will never forget the ones who went on before us and waiting at the Bridge, but I promise, you will love another one! God bless you! (He blessed you already and He will again).
