Funny how deeply they work their way into your heart and how hard proper decisions on their welfare become. I don't know how to say what I want to say but somehow I'm feeling we failed her. We love the little munchkin to death and don't want her to suffer and we feel she is now starting to suffer.

Keep us in your thoughts today, thank you.
Many Ohhmmmsss & thoughts sent to you and sweet Izzy... I have had to give several up to end their suffering...

I sit here in tears remembering their last look.. We still have pictures to remember fondly the good times..

I wish I could make it easier for you...

She wanted to be outside under her favorite shade tree.

It's like she knows today's the day

Hopefully her and the Furb will get to play at the infamous bridge.

Well...I noticed she needs some more roof help...the passenger side eternabond is lifting.... And the 'paint job' the fella we bought it from let his grandkids do on it is flaming on the front stripe. It's always something, and we know that, so not upset...just noting a future work project for ds #4...

How can so much love be considered a failing? Nothing lives in this plain of existence for long...you have done all you can, and now you are giving her the peace she deserves. Bless you.

Marty has said it so well! And that Rainbow Bridge (imo) is a place of peace and release from pain, a great place for a reunion and a romp. Izzy will know you have loved her well.

Terribly hard on you, this parting, I know. Been there too. I'm wishing you and Denise comfort and peace.

I truly feel your pain. It's like losing a family member....it hurts horribly, bit it will get better eventually.

We struggled letting our last two go to the Rainbow Bridge ( we waiteda day too long on each).

I wish you peace in your decisions & in your grieving.

Bless her sweet little heart, Dennis. I'm so very sorry for you all; this is always such a hard decision to make.

RVM Lexicon

Curiosity -- a collection of 2 or more RVMs



Grande Curiosity (GC) -- when 10 or more RVMs get together to play. All GCs shall be numbered in order to provide clarity. The first GC will always be known as GC1.0. GCs may be followed by their location as in GC1.0@CL

which translates as Grand Curiosity at Catherine's Landing.



Mini-C -- a meeting of 2 or 3 RVMs



Midi-C -- a get together of more than 3, but fewer than 10 RVMs



MARLG -- Murder At Rope Light Gulch -- the mystery novel that RVM2, aka Flaggship, aka Steve is writing. Word has it that it's about the mutant lifestyle.



Murker -- Mutant lurker



W--k -- What most people do Monday thru Friday in exchange for a paycheck before retirement. RV Mutants consider this word to be obscene so it is never used in polite company.



Toad -- any vehicle towed behind an RV



MH or Moho -- motorhome



DP -- diesel pusher (diesel fueled motorhome with a rear engine)



Family shortcuts



DW -- dear wife or the D may be a substitute for any other word starting with D such as darling, dangerous, damn or demented.

DH -- D____ husband

DD -- Darling daughter

DS -- Dear son

DGD -- Darling grand daughter

DIL -- daughter-in-law

SIL -- son-in-law or sister-in-law

BIL -- brother-in-law

Grands -- grandchildren





Feel free to add to this list.

Barb......
To be added.... These were in my notebook.

SLS- Salt Lamp Society
IWARP- I want a Rubi People
STM - Sick Twisted Mutant
SFM - sliding Finger Mutant
Finger Slide- not a typing error, but when your finger slides to the key beside it




Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!

Dennis,

It's never easy, we have done it so many times with our fur kids too. At least you had the time to share with her and she had a wonderful life with you and Denise, you know she will never be far from your heart.

Be Well my Friend

Ohmms to Izzy from the boys. We know what you are going through too many times. Once again as our 14 year old is going downhill quickly.
