March Rainbow Bridge

Bunker

Bunker was my 15th foster in May of 2012. He was adopted by a family in Nebraska, who drove all the way to my house to pick him up. He lived a wonderful life with his family, a very sweet and gentle  dog who will be missed.

From Wendy – We had to put Bunker down today. He had become very arthritic and we tried everything the vet could offer. Today he was throwing up and crying. It just got to be too much for him. Thank you for being his foster mom. He had a great life and will be missed. We loved him.

Ricky

My sweet Ricky went over the bridge Saturday afternoon. He was my MWCR transport failure six years ago. He was bound for Green Bay, my job was to get him from Wayzata to Eau Claire. He had clearly never ridden in a car, never wore a collar.  Had clumps of cow manure throughout his coat and was riddled with fleas. He had an overbite that rivaled Freddie Mercury. But when our eyes met, and his tail slowly wagged, I was on my phone to see if we could foster to adopt him. We never made it out of Minnesota.

We could tell things were getting harder for him. His breathing was very labored and we could tell he was uncomfortable and struggling.

He was the sweetest and most sensitive collie we ever owned. Reamus is a bit lost without him. Our house is sad without him.  Until we meet again, my sweet boy. Thank you for picking us and to MWCR for putting up with my craziness and allowing him into our lives.

Eli

We were sad to learn that handsome Eli, adopted in 2013, went to the Bridge last month. Eli came to frolic with us at most of the WI events and we will miss his sweet face. He would have been 13 yrs old in June. Run free, sweet boy.
