When yu add to dat my dodgy ticker, my doddery legs and my tail tumour I decided it was time fer me to go and be wivs Angel sista Molly. Her was waitin fer me across da bridge n her dids hav her biggest happiest smile on her most beeyooteous face, we ran to each ova and we bounced, licked, danced n sniffed butts it was a most joyous fing. We is so happy to be togevver at last and she sends yu all her biggest luvs, yu should see her all her fur is grown and is all long and flowy, her eyes ( yes both ov dem ) are bright and shinin and her looks so wonderful. Up here my legs are all strong n all da doddery-ness has gone, my heart is strong and I has not forgots one single fing and I has both my eyes n my missin dangly is back Yippee.

Da Momster dids stay wivs me holdin me close an whisperin softly to me an I wents to sleep very peaceful in her arms da last fing I heard was my Moms tellin me how much she luved me and how proud she was to havs been my Momster.

It was a great life full ovs lots n lots ovs luv and tenderness wivs da bestest cuddles in da whole wide galaxy, I had da most pawesome times wivs my family.

I was so blessed wivs wonderful furiends in all ovs yu and was and am so proud ov havin yu all in my life, Now don’ts yu all go gettin sad fer me cos I is most happy here wivs Molly and I will never leave any ovs yu, I will pop in on all ovs yu now an den to check how yu all is doin so if any ovs yu lose a milk bone or a pawticularly nommy treat den yu knows me n Molly has been fer a visit.

Could I ask yu all to keeps your eyes on Sista Ronnii cos she has a habit ovs gettin a bits out ov paw Da pawrents try dere best wivs her and yu know dere is only so much we can do for dem all from up here.

  41. Oh, we just got online after days of not really being here and just learned that Richie has crossed the Bridge. It's hard not to be sad about it. We will miss you so very much. But we are so glad that you had your wonderful family and your Momster to make your life wonderful. We think you're so brave and that your Momster is about the bravest human we know. We know you'll be happy and free of pain and suffering now. We hope your family is not too terribly sad, but it's so good they'll have you and Molly to watch over them. We'll try to keep an eye on them, too.

  42. We got to read the rest tomorrow since momma is slobbering on us sweet Richie. Goodbye, see you one day
    Benny & Lily

  43. We heard about you from Frankie and Puddles, Richie. We may not have had the privilege to know you but we are sure that you were a very special one not just to your family but to all your friends. We say a prayer for you and your loved ones and we will read all about the wonderful memories you have left behind here in your bloggie.

    Do watch over your Momster with a smile and run free with your sister there over the Rainbow Bridge.

  49. Oh Richie - we did so want to be strong and brave but we're afraid that the two of us and FH just cried and cried when we heard. We're gonna miss you SO much.

    BUT - how happy we are that you and Angel Molly are together again - now that is really cool! We admit that we did wonder where our favourite James Wellbeloved biccie treat had disappeared to last night and we were convinced we could hear some crunching and giggline whilst we were looking for it - now we know!

    Until we meet again sweet friend. And don't worry, we'll give sista Ronnii and your wonderful Mama extra special and hugely big schnauzer snuggles on Saturday! (Max will probably be a bit shouty too - he says he's gonna do it for you!)

    Much love - JD and Max (and FH)

  50. Oh Richie, we will miss you but are so happy you are with your sissy Molly now. It's nice down here but so many of ours friends and family are happy to have you to play within now. My angel sister Samantha is on the welcoming crew and she loves you already.

    Love Mona, Weenie and the Mommy

    R.I.P. - Have fun at the bridge!

  52. Benny Lily and Pip sent me. Richie, I enjoyed following you on your adventures. What a brave boy you are. I know you will be sadly missed by all your friends and family, for that I am sorry. I am glad to know that you are back to 100% frolicking with all your friends over the bridge.

  53. My wonderful, handsome and lovely Richie. I miss you terribly already
    My momma keeps trying to help me write this comment , butt her cannot keep da tears from leaking and leaking and leaking.

    I am so glad you found such a wonderful and loving family to be with these past months.....whatever tough times you had before you went to rescue were forgotten by all the love and caring your momma tea and poppy have given you.

    I shall NEVER forgets you and we will see each other someday at da bridge. Until then give Angel Molly my love, and I hope you soon met my Angel Brudder Dude will like him a lot!

But mom's all leaky and my heart is heavy cuz we're just gonna miss you SO much! I just feel so blessed that I gots the chance to know you!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  61. Oh Richie, we are trying to smile for you. But the tears are coming anyway. Even momma is crying. We will miss your handsome face. Everytime I look at the beautiful badge you made just for me, I will think of you. You sister is in good hands. Your spirit will be with us when we celebrate the birthday. Hey!

  65. Oh Richie... We've been taking a bloggy break and we just found out from Mr. Pip's blog that you have gone to the Bridge! Now Mama is crying crocodile tears, which we are licking off her face for her. (They're salty!) We told her the Bridge is beautiful and that your sister is there, and maybe you'll see OUR sisters Chopper and Zip! You are such a special doggie and we know you'll be missed here on Earth. Give your Momster our love.

  66. I am happy that you and Molly are together again - but I am sad for the ones you left behind because I know how much they will be missing you.

  67. What a beautiful post. We're visiting from Pip's blog and we'd like to leave our sincere condolences on the loss of your dear Richie.

  68. We are so very sorry we never got to know you, Richie. You sound like a very sweet and fun-loving guy.

    Love ya lots

  69. We are sending our love and keeping your Peeps in our thoughts and prayers.

    We feel comforted by your words, dear Richie. We know you are with your Sissy and all our friends who have gone before us. We will all meet again, dear one...

  70. Dear Richie and Richie's family, we are stopping by from Miss Mayzie's blog. We did not know Richie but what we DO KNOW is how much we miss our dog kids when they have to leave us.

    We sent a prayer to our Angel Dogs Chloe, Pepi, Suzie, Porter and Jake to greet you and maybe share some of their toys so you won't feel lonely.

    To Richie's family: Our hearts hurt for you but we know that one day you will see Richie at the Bridge when the time comes. xoxoxo

  71. Sorry to see you go, dear Richie. No more suffering over the bridge. Say "hi" to our 'Leo', he's the big handsome Airedale that smiles, you can't miss him!

    Love and peace to your family xox

  77. Oh, Richie! I almost met you at the bridge on Sunday, buddy! I'm so honored to have met you. Until we meet again.

    Sending slobber & hugs to your family,

    Rudy's Raiser

  79. Dear Richie,
    Because I'm human I have a hard time dealing with the loss of pets more than the loss of humans because pets are always honest and are always thinking of us no matter what we look like, feel like, or behave like and that's partly why I avoided visiting this blog post for so long. I just wanted to avoid reading this so that I could make myself believe that you are still here BUT you really are still here in spirit and I know you are watching your sister and your girlfuriend and your humans forever. We are sorry that you had to leave us but we knew you were in a lot of pain so enjoy your time over the bridge and we will always think of you!

  80. X,

    Run and be free, Richie!

    All our love and hugs to your mommy and family.

    Love ya,

  82. We came over to say well done for the great life you gave Richie, what dog could ask for more.

  83. Me and my cat Charlie have come over from Jan's Funny Farm. We are so sorry you had leave us beautiful Richie! We give your mum and sisfur all our purrs and hugs, take care

  84. I did not know you, but all your friends are talking about you.
    I heard you say, not to be sad or anything.
    I think you were the luckiest furry ever to have such a wonderful home and so many friends.
    I know your all healthy now,, and running free like the wind,, and with some of your friends and family who crossed before,,,
    I will tell you one thing,,,
    you will never be forgotten,,, and just reading your words,,, you have inspired me.
    run free!

  85. Oh, Richie, I'm sorry you had to go. I hope you are very happy out there with your sister.

    I wish you two out there and your family back on this side a happy Easter! May beautiful memories be cherished forever!

  86. Richie, I'm so sorry you have to be separated from your family for a while. I'm sure they're feeling very sad and missing you, but they must remember that you'll be waiting for them at the bridge and you'll all be together someday.

  87. Oh my goodness - I just found you through other bloggie friends and now you're gone! Many hugs to your family. I wish I had had time to know you.
