She was Rocky's Guardian Angel -
I will let Mom tell the story
Thanks Khyra - yes, I would like to think that Little Gracie was Rocky's Guardian Angel from across The Rainbow Bridge
Gracie was to have been on this past Sunday's transport - she was a six month Siberian Husky puppy - surrendered by a young owner that wasn't prepared for what adding a Siberian to their life required - so they gave Gracie the promise of a better life and surrendered her -
Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be - I got a call Sunday morning whilst in Harrisburg with Jett and Anton - if you watched their videos, you heard me get the call -
Gracie has crossed sometime that morning between 4 and 5 am - a necropsy was done to determine the cause of death - at first it was thought it was due to complications from her spay - which had been done the previous Wednesday - but the results indicated it was Parvo related - it has worn her system down sufficiently to compromise her healing from the spay - she couldn't fight it off -
As soon as I heard the news I knew what Gracie's job was now meant to be: she was to become Rocky's Guardian Angel - the angel that would help guide him - help show him it was time to end his Run-A-Bout so he could get ready for the wonderful chance at furever happiness that she wouldn't get to have 'here' -
I guess since she was just a pup, she hadn't quite found the voice she needed to use to convince Rocky it was time - so it took until Monday for him to hear her message and realise he needed to do it for Gracie -
SOOOOO, with many tears, we thank you Gracie - please wear your little silver harness with pride - knowing you made a difference even if you didn't get to do it 'here' - one day, all of us will get the chance to thank you for the opportunity to share the following pictures
Here are some more pics of the incredible RockyThanks GracieFor letting us have the chance to see this awesome Akita strut Thanks to Chris for being the first one on the scene Monday afternoon (AND FOR SHARING THESE PICTURES)Thanks to Amy for showing the power of never giving upAnd for sharing your winning smile!
Here is the link to a Photobucket slideshow of Chris's pictures she shared with the Rocky Rescue E-Mail list - she had zipped them into three files - I asked if I could create a PB album of them - obviously she said YES!
As we were building this post, I meant to include two pics from our Road Trip Sunday post from June 27 which showed about where he had been hanging out and waiting for Rocky's Angels - I did go update the two pics that show just how close we were to him - actually, when Amy and I saw him on the move that morning, he was probably heading there!!!Khyra and I would like to share all these flowers with all involved - either in the search efforts OR with support 'here'
