Our sweet lil Mocha has completed her journey here with us. I held her in my arms, as we all gently kissed her and whispered our goodbye's... She passed away Sunday afternoon, October 26th. Our hearts are broken and we're filled with a tremendous sadness as we work through our grief, trying to adjust to her not being here anymore.
Loss of a Ferret
If you've ever known the welcome
Of a funny, fuzzy friend,
That brings a ray of shinshine
When the day draws to an end-
If you've ever hugged a Ferret close
To share a tear or two,
Or maybe just a whiskered kiss
To lift you when you're blue-
If you've ever felt the wrenching pain
That only death can send-
Then losing a sweet Ferret
Is like losing a dear friend.
But God is good and teasures love
And there at Heaven's gate,
That funny face and joyful dance-
Your precious Ferret waits.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent. Her eager body quivers. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...
