My Dear Petloss Family:
At 4:40 p.m. Sophie left for Rainbow Bridge to be with Christopher. Losing our Precious Angels is devastating.  We have to let them go far too soon.  Life is just a nightmare. 

We Love you Sophie and we miss you so much.  Be a good girl and stay close to Christopher.  May God hold you close and keep you safe for mommy Forever.

I'm so sorry you had to loose Sophie. We have such a short time with our babies. It certainly doesn't seem fair, does it. Prayers for you and your husband. Sophie was a lucky girl to be so loved.

God Bless your beloved little Sophie, 14 years is a long life, but never long enough, if they lived to be 50 it would still never be long enough. Shih Tzu's are the dearest little souls. What a joy to have had her in your life. She loved you so much, she will never ever leave you, now she is safe from all harm or pain, tucked inside your heart forever.
It's so healing to be able to come and share our grief and our pain and all our wonderful memories too, this Petloss message board is a God send.So many people sometimes even family and friends simply do not understand the heart ache. Something so precious  is gone, someone we loved with all our heart, who loved us and asked so little in return.
I am so sorry for the loss of Sophie.

Dear {{{{Georgeann}}}},

Oh, I am so sorry I missed your earlier post asking for prayers for Sophie. I have been taking a bit of a break from the board since Jerry passed. I don't think it was just coincidence that I happened to check in tonight. 

My heart broke when I read that Sophie had passed on to the Bridge.  I am just so very sorry for your loss.  I had been wondering how Sophie was doing as I knew her liver shunt was causing her health to decline.  Oh, that sweet baby.  I will never understand why such innocent, loving little creatures who bring us only pure joy have such short lives.  I guess the only silver lining in your dark cloud of sorrow is knowing that your sweet girl is now with your darling little Little Man, Christopher.  What a beautiful reunion that must have been!  I know Christopher will take such good care of her for you, and she will watch over him as only a "sister" can.  I think of you often, Georgeann, and wonder how life is going for you and your family.  I hope sweet angels surround you with peace as you miss your darling babies.

Beautiful little Sophie, run with the angels straight into the arms of your loving Christopher.  Both of you be the precious little angels you are and watch over your mommy.  She loves and misses you so much.  Surround her heart with all the warmth of your love, and let her know you are okay and oh so patiently await the day you are reunited with her.

Many hugs dear friend,

Dearest Georgeann,

I am so so sorry for the loss of your Precious Sophie. Oh how my Heart breaks for you. The Joyous reunion between Christopher and Sophie is ringing through Heaven as we speak. Jesus is holding Your Precious Babies in his arms. You are there with them Georgeann because the Love is engulfing them. I truly believe that Georgeann. No one, or nothing can separate us from Love. God bless you Dear Friend.

Love, Mayme ~ Sammy's Mommy

Dear Rottiesrule, Jan,Daun and Melissa:

Thank you for your wonderful posts and your Prayers.  Sophie was my sweet little girl.  It is so hard to believe that she is gone.  I still question why God has to take them back so soon in life. 

Like Christopher, Sophie was always by my side.  As I sit here and type this to you, her spot is empty; it is so heartbreaking. 

I always called her Miss Sophie.  She was the alpha dog who ruled the house and who made sure the other dogs behaved.  We will miss her Forever.

Melissa, I know how awful it was for you losing Precious Ralphie and Betsy Noodle.  It just does not get any easier does it?  There will Always be a huge hole in my heart as these Precious Angels take part of your Heart with them when they leave.

Daun, I remember when you lost Precious Jade.  I still remember the wonderful headstone you had made for Jade.  It is so hard living without our Angels.

Thank you all for reading Sophie's post.  When I went out to the barn to feed yesterday a Magnificent White Dove flew over my head.  I have Never seen a white dove in this area and I have lived here for over 25 years.  I know it was Sophie letting me know she was OK and was not in pain any longer.  I know that Christopher will take care of her until mommy arrives.  She was my Miss Sophie and will be Forever

"Angels Are Forever; God Never Takes Them Away"
I Love you Miss Sophie and I Miss You SO Much.
Be a good Girl and Stay Close To Christopher.
I will be there some day I promise.

May God Watch Over You and Keep You Safe Forever
I Love You

Her headstone still sits in our garden, right underneath her plot of peonies.  :)  She's such a sweet girl.  Now she can play with your Sophie!  They will get a long great.

Oh Dear Georgeann,
I am so so sorry to read about Sophie & my heart is with you.I am not on the board quite as much as I used to be but come on now & then and saw your post . It is so difficult to let them go on before us but I know your Christopher was waiting there and greeted her with all the love that he has  and you have two very loved fur angels watching over you to see you through. You know that Christopher will take good care of your little Sophie & they will have each other until the day you are with them again.
My Love to you,
Max's mom Jo

I am so sorry to hear of this loss for you.  Thank you for emailing me -- I sent you a couple of emails back.

I know that Sophie is in good hands at the Bridge:  Christopher and all of our babies (Molly included!) will be right there for her.  And, we are here for you.

Sending you love, Georgeann.  I'm so sorry.

Georgeann, I too know how you feel.  I lost my presious shih-tzu, CoCo on April 3rd to Cushings disease.  He was such a gentle little boy and I really find it hard to think of life without him.  Then on June 6th, I lost my little brindle chihuahua girl, Taterbug to congestive heart failure.  I know CoCo went first so that he could escort Taterbug into Paradise.  I miss them both so much.  It has been a very hard time since their passing.  Christopher and Sophie are and remain beautiful.  I know your life feels empty without their companionship and love.  I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Georgeann,

I am so sorry to hear about Sophie! She is with your precious Christopher now, but I know how painful it is coping with her loss.  Losing our babies takes such a big part of us.  Please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Georgeann,
I was so sorry to read that Sophie has passed to the bridge.  I know your heart is just breaking for your girl.  I don't understand either why their lives must be so short and we must wait so long to be with them again.  She is such a beautiful girl, and now she is a gorgeous angel.  Can't you see Sophie and Christopher running the green fields so happy to see each other again.  I pray you receive a sign soon from your babies letting you know they are together and watching over you forever.
Sending Hugs,

Dearest Mayme,Terri,Jo,Robyn,EJones,Mare,CrazyLady,Sandie, and Joann:

Thank you all for your beautiful posts and for all your caring thoughts about Sophie and Christopher.  It is wonderful seeing so many old friends on the board once again.   All of you ahve been here for me for so long.  What a nightmare life can be. 

My house is such a terrible place without Sophie.  When I came home last night she was not at the front door waiting; when I took my shower this morning I was alone in the bathroom because Sophie was not there.  My husband is devastated too as she was his little girl as well.

My other shih tzus refuse to eat; I know that they miss Sophie too.  Benny slept in her spot last night.  As you all know, it is AWFUL.  I miss her so much and I feel so helpless as there is nothing I can do.  You have all been in my shoes so I know you understand.  I hated this feeling when I lost Christopher and I hate it now.

All of you re correct in that I know she and Christopher are together.  When I was watering this morning, 2 beautiful Monarch butterflies came out of nowhere and flew around me.  They looked identical.  I know it was Sophie and Christopher.  I have always been able to hear Christopher speak to me and I can hear Sophie too.  I know she is not in pain any longer and I know that she is in a better place with Christopher.  Unfortunately the pain is still overwhelming. 

Thank you all for understanding and for caring. 

I Love you Miss Sophie
I will miss you Forever
Stay safe my sweet Angel and stay close to Christopher
I will be there I promise

I Love You so Much

Dear Georgeann, I am so very very sorry to hear of the loss of your darling Sophie. I don't come to the boards that much any more, I feel I can't help the poor grieving souls here like they deserve. I feel empty even after over 2 years. But I know you understand what I mean. 
Sophie and your beloved Christopher are together and Christopher will take very good care of her. We both know there are no magic words to ease the pain Georgeann. I am so happy you can hear your darlings speak to you, I believe it. When there is such a strong bond between two souls it is possible. I know my beloved Mr. Meowgy is with me always.
Again Georgeann I am so very sorry and with all my heart I wish you peace and comfort. Donna, Mr. Meowgy's mom

Love,  Diane, Mom of Miss Dallas at the bridge almost 8 years

Dearest Georgeann ~


Like yourself, after some time, my visits to this wonderful site tapered off . . . But tonight I felt the tug and saw your post about your sweet girl Sophie. I can only imagine the heartache you’re going through (again) Oh, what a face ~ I just love that photo of Sophie & Christopher. In the past several weeks, many close friends of mine have lost their earth angels & no matter what, it’s always so very hard.

I know you know that they are together, safe in the arms of our higher power, patiently waiting for your reunion.

With hugs & warm affection,

Rusty’s Mom – Allison

Dearest Georgeann:

Have been away for awhile but saw your post and had to reply.  So sorry for your loss of Sophie.  I know the pain you have had to deal with since Christopher passed.  We have travelled this road for such a long time my friend.  Take good care of yourself.  I just posted yesterday too as Jasmine's birthday is always a good time for me to reflect on things.  My PetLoss family is never far from my thoughts though.  Sending big hugs your way as you grieve yet again for your baby, Sophie.

                                               Hugs to you,

                                               JasminesMom (Kathy)

Dear Donna, Diane, Jan, Allison, Linda, Kathy,Boo Boo's Mommy,Cindy and JoAnn:

Thank you so much for your wonderful posts and all your prayers.  All of you have been here for me for so long.  I have to admit I have been feeling so overwhelmed with Sophie's loss.  I know that she is with Christopher, but it doesn't help with the heartache.  And of course, I will never heal from Christopher's loss.

Like many of you I am not on the board as much as I was for the first two plus years.  I feel as if I have run out of words.  It just breaks my heart every time I see a new loss as I know what a nightmare life becomes. 

I know that all our Angels are together and safe and I know they are waiting for us.  I know that when it is our time to journey to the Bridge they will all be patiently waiting for our arrival.  I know they will wait forever.  I know that Christopher will watch over Sophie for me. 

I never would have made it through these past three plus years without all of you.  I will be forever grateful for your friendship and understanding. 


I Love You All
Sending Big Hugs
Georgeann, Christopher and Sophie Forever
