Saying Goodbye to Breanna Diamond Temperance Young

Today was one of the most heart-wrenching days we have had to face as a family.  Our 11 1/2yr old Boxer Breanna was put to rest.  She woke up that morning just fine, but by 10am she started having seizures.  By noon they were constant and I picked Brandon up from school.  We took this photo of all of us together around 2pm, just before we took her to the vet to have her put to sleep.
She was the most loving and faithful dog in the world.  She gave all of us so much love and was always by our side. 

It's so hard not hearing her little footsteps around the house and not being able to kiss that beautiful face of hers.  She was my little girl, and my heart breaks for her.  I miss her so very much.

She was such a good dog.  She brought so much life to our home. Her absence will be a huge adjustment for all of us.  I dream of her in heaven, playing with my Daddy until we get up there with her.  Tell my Daddy I love him Breanna and we will all be together again someday soon. 
We miss you little girl.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

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. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him 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....
