Rainbow Bridge

#1 Post by PHXPhlyer » Fri Apr 02, 2021 6:02 pm

We lost a member of the family this morning.
Tinker Belle, an 18 year old miniature Pomeranian. died. o:-)
She was snow white and looked more like an Arctic Fox. Just a black nose and two dark eyes.
She was mostly blind and deaf but was able to navigate from her spot under my bed, where she spent most of her time, to outside and back again with help from extra lighting and a loud voice to follow.
As you can imagine, my ex and our kids are very upset.
Final arrangements are pending at this time.

I'll see you at The Bridge Tinkie. (*)

And me, though only consolation was She had a good life. Our last loss was just 30 minutes, so rapid we didn't have time to be upset until later.

Shucks, only just noticed this news PHXPhlyer. Sorry to hear it.
Depressed, feeling a slump, then remember Lift = Coefficient of Lift x 1/2 x ρ x V-squared X S!
