I'm also without words. May you find peace in the memories you have of Thrawn. This is by far my favorite pic of him! Such a very rough year all around. He's now frolicking with Dakota and Clea and they are watching down on all of the rest of the crew!

Our hearts are breaking and tears are falling. We've been checking back and am so sad to receive this difficult news. May the thoughts of Dakota in God's Garden to meet Thrawn help your hearts. The beautiful pictures & memories will help in the healing. We will miss him too.

Lots of Love & Licks to all the pack & humans.

Lisa said...

I was so afraid this is what I would read when I checked back. I'm so sorry, Maryann. I know your heart is in pieces tonight. You gave Thrawn so much love and care and I know it wasn't always easy, but you did it any way because you loved him. He was a handsome, sweet dog. I will miss hearing more of his adventures. Sleep well, Thrawn. *tears*

I am sorry for you loss. I have just read the story about how Thrawn had entered your life. He had lived a tough life and is very lucky to have found love from you.

You have done your best for him, and I know it make no sense to tell you not to feel too sad. I just hope that you will find comfort with the fact that Thrawn had the happiest part of his life with you and its because of you that he get to know what its like to be loved and cared for. At least he is no longer suffering now.

RIP, Thrawn. You will always be remembered and loved by your family and all of your friends.

Run free, my friend. Till we meet again.

p.s. One of our DWB friends suggested that Thrawn was Sophie's angel today, when she was in danger. Maybe they were right and Thrawn is watching over all the DWB brood.

Maryann and Brats:

We hadn't had a chance to check in this morning, and have had business all day. We got home to check blogs and found the message about Thrawn. We know you two shared a special bond, and that he will be sadly missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the others. Know that all of you gave him love, care and support, and that he is truly comfortable now where there is no pain, no seizures, only love and joy.

Oh no!! My heart is just breaking and the tears are running. I am so shocked and saddened. He was such a tough guy, and he had been doing pretty well. He was sooo beautiful and I always just wanted to hug him! I am so soo sooooo sorry Maryann. I can't even begin to tell you how terrible I feel for you. You will most certainly be in my prayers. Beautiful Thrawn, wear your silver harness with pride, and wait for your mom and fur-siblings to meet you again one day. Dakota now has his brother to keep him company until you meet him again.

Bama said...

Oh Maryanne, we are so sorry to hear about this! We know that no words will ease your pain, but please remember that you were his angel here on earth, now it's his turn to be your angel. We lost our Starr & Ice last year, and the pain never goes away, but it will mellow and become bittersweet. Wish we could be there to give you big hugs & slurpy kisses, but know that the rest of your pack is surely doing that. Please feel free to contact us for siber-hugs or anything else we can do. Our hearts are with you. Mama wants to share this husky specific version of North of the Rainbow Bridge with you, it helps her when she's feeling down missing Starr & Ice, and is a beautiful tribute to our beautiful breed.

The River Hill Pack

North of The Rainbow Bridge

by MakWa4me

The time comes. A Siberian Husky lifts up its head. There is an untested adventure beyond. Time to go.

Across the Rainbow Bridge is a place for all dogs. A river runs wide and shallow with tennis balls that fly with their own wings; that is the place for a Labrador or Golden to await its master's arrival.

The Siberian is not content here. Northward is its trail....

There are soft pastures for Aussies and Border Collies, with sheep and geese to pen. Agility equipment grows like trees amid Frisbees and flyball.

But the North continues its sure wild call, and the Siberian's journey continues....

Now the air is colder. Now the moon is always full. Now the light is silver and it breaks and shimmers on fields of bright snow. Now there are no roads, no walls, no pens, just endless space to run. This is where Siberians gather, North of the Rainbow Bridge.

They wait in this beautiful place, happy, but not complete. Suddenly, a howl begins, as one dog senses someone coming, someone very special. All the Siberians raise their heads and join in the ancient chorus. They dance like moonbeams and sing like winter winds.

There are red ones like dawn streaks, black ones splattered with many colors and silver ones like the first strange hour before light. They line up as if in harness and run together, in a scintillating, many-colored streak. The leader of the team guides the others past the fields and river, with racing feet and racing heart. They rush to greet the new arrival at the Rainbow Bridge, where the leader is rejoined with its beloved person, never to be parted again.

The glory of the reunion is celebrated by all the Siberians dwelling beyond the Bridge, a glimmering, multicolored team leaping and whirling with joy. The light from that scene is what we see on magical evenings in the northernmost parts of this Earth: The Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights beyond the Rainbow Bridge.

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

We're so sorry about Thrawn. We've been behind on reading blogs, and sorry that we didn't offer any encouraging words during the past few days. We're sure you did what was best for Thrawn, even though it was difficult. Our thoughts are with you.

Randi said...

Randi & her mom & dad

AbbyK9 said...

I am so sorry for your loss. :(


By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.

A poem:


From the silence of your pain I heard my name and on the wings of light I have come to see the sadness in your eyes that cry without tears

Can you see me, I am here
I will always be near you
to calm your shattered heart
and to make you smile at the memories

Do you feel me, perhaps a soft brush of fur
You ache to believe it's real
but you are afraid to hope
You brush away a strand of hair
But it was I, whispering.....

I am only here for but a moment
The silver thread gently quivers
I will leave behind my love in a dream
When you awaken, and without really knowing why

Your heart will know at last
That it is all right, for now
to say good-bye ...

Dear Maryann,

I am sorry about Thrawn.

I understand your loss. Two
days before Thanksgiving
I lost my beloved Tolkien.
He'd been by best friend
for fourteen years.

Somewhere our husky boys
are playing, young, and running around like wild puppies, making their silver harnesses jingle so loud that all the angels are going to need earplugs.

Godspeed to the Rainbow Bridge Thrawn

We will be thinking of you and sending good pawsome vibes to you all.

Love and HUGE kisses
Texas (and his humans).

I'm so sorry to hear the sad news about Thrawn. We shared much in common. I shall put my paws together and pray he has a safe trip to the bridge.

Love, Mary-Margaret O'Brien

PS - Thank you for the Christmas Card.

Maryann, we're very sorry and sad to that Thrawn went over the Rainbow Bridge. He is a beautiful husky and we enjoyed the stories you told us about him. Also, knowing that he struggled with seizures helped us get through ours as well as we learned from what you wrote and what he went through.

I hope he is no longer in pain and that he is smiling down from you from Husky Heaven. I bet he is bragging to everyone up there what a wonderful, loving, self sacrificing family he had. He'll definitely be missed.

You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Hi guys,

I wanted to send you some smooches and to let you know we are still thinking of you. I posted a picture for you today, Sam, hoping it would bring a much needed smile to your face. Please share with your mom. Laughing at me is ok.

We are so sorry to hear about Thrawn. He was such a beautiful dog, reading your post just broke our hearts. We know that he is in a better place, healthy and happy, playing with Dakota and all those who crossed the bridge before him. You, Thrawn and the rest of the pack will be in our thoughts and prayers. May Thrawn be running free and happy!

Your pals,
Kirby & Mom (Kirstin)

Mistress thought she had posted our condolences days ago but she has read through the posts twice now and can't find what she wrote. Maybe she couldn't see the right buttons through her tears and didn't press correctly.

We didn't want you to think we weren't thinking of you all. Sorry for her incompetence.
