Zach, my little angel, rest in peace

my husband and i purchased zach a 5 year old male schnauzer at that time pepper and salt. zach came over to the both of us and picked us for his new family no one else wanted him, he was straggly and out of sorts, and i had a talk with zach and i told him that he was coming home with my husband and i and he was so excited and happy that finally he was going to a home where a family wanted him.
well a year goes by and hes doing good everything was good till last night we had to take him to the pet hospital because zach got really sick on us, they ran tests on him and found out that this little happy go lucky fella had diabetis non cureable, sugar high, and dehydrated, they said that he wasnt going to live the night because he was in alot of pain and suffering really bad.
so they suggested us to relieve all of this for him by putting him down and thinking and putting him first what was best for him, so that's what we did.
he was 6 years old and 22.7 lbs. the life that we had with zach being so peppy and happy is now gone and nothing but sadness and sorrow and memories.
you are now up in heaven my little friend, you will always be remembered and missed.
love you lots!, your parents and friends, joann bogart
passed away 12/23/2012 merry christmas my angel!

Maybe another Schnauzer..to love
by: Michele

Joann.. the Schnauzer Terrier sounds most definitely like a Schnauzer as in the USA they are classed as Terriers.. In the UK the Schnauzer.. the mini especially, is classed as Utility Breed.. the larger of the Schnauzers,, the Giant are in Working Class.. If you are thinking of another rescue.. try to make sure she /he has no health problems or that she/he is not on medication.. and also that there are no eye problems within her/his family....
The terrier mix ... sorry I can't help you with.. I hope you and your hubby find another either female or male, to fill your household again and to love.. please keep us up to date..

Your Angel.. Zach
by: Michele

Oh.. I have tears in my eyes, too. It makes me think of my boys, REBEL 1 & RINGO, that have now gone over to Rainbow Bridge....PLEASE Read My Story on the RAINBOW BRIDGE Site, because if I write it I'll not be able to see with tears..
Remember that Zach has not gone, he's just in the next room and watching over you and he DID spend Christmas with you, even though you couldn't see him .. don't leave an empty home too long before you get another, as when we say goodbye to our Loyal Companions our home is never the same without ... At least he had a wonderful be it short life-time with you and was loved and still is.. We can Never replace but we can find love again.. Remember the happy memories... I'm still in tears.... Rest In Peace, Zach.
( I will upload & post a Poem for you on the Rainbow Bridge site later today.... )

From the bridge

What he might tell you


Message:
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say
But first of all, to let you know that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from the Rainbow Bridge.
Here I dwell with God above
Here there is no more tears of sadness; there is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you badly, you are part of My Plan
There's so much we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do
And foremost on the list was to watch and care for you,
And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight,
God and I are close to you in the middle of the night.

When you think of life on earth and all those loving years
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears
But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain
Remember there could be no flowers, unless there could be some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over
Now, more than ever before, my life to you is closer.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.

It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too
That as you give to the world, the world will give to you.
Then you can say to God at night and "my day was not in vain."
And now I am contented that my life was worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
Lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you go.

When you are walking down the street and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go, from your body to be free,
Remember you're not going. You're coming here to me.
