My ^Duke^ rottie got his wings to the bridge today - he crossed in my arms in the comfort of home at 220 pm-
God speed my friend... You are in my heart forever and ever ...

Fly free , high and whole at the bridge - I know the ole crew and ^ Yoda Cat^ you loved so much are awaiting to romp with jolly ball and share kitty kisses ...

"Till then my best friend"

In the arms of the angel may you find some comfort there...

Rest in Peace My "Marmaduke" 2003-2015

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers on this journey... It means the world to me -

Tonight a long long time rottie friend who loved and lost rotties together for nearly
30 years sent me this picture of our babies waiting on the other side for ^Duke^

You left my life but never my heart

I had wished ^Duke^ here for Halloween .. But that would have been holding on for me ... So we took a picture with his pumpkin amd he soared free in the arms of the angel ..

Today, this Saturday Halloween afternoon , my vet called and said he was home ..

My ^Duke^, my guardian , my best friend , in his own stoic way, watching over me from the bridge , made sure his spirit known was home with me for Halloween.


Til then my friend ...



I only wanted you...


Fly free high and whole..
You loved and missed beyond words....
Goodnight my ^Duke^

A big hug for you! You showed you love Duke more then yourself by letting Duke go when it was time for him to go. I know Duke will be watching over you and will be with you in your heart. Still, that doesn't make it easier cause you would also want him in your arms.
Thanks to your stories Duke touched all our hearts!

One year ago today ...
"You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here"


The say "The firsts" are the hardest...
I taste the salt of those tears today

They say "Don't cry because it's over ... Smile because it happened..."
I am still trying

They say "his ears were the first thing to catch my tears "
I still feel as I close my eyes and remember your soft fur beneath my cheek


Your leash still hangs at the door .. A gentle reminder where you and I began each day on a walk of a lifetime my friend.

They say " you get the dog you need. "
I got you my eternal friend indeed

The day I got called to pick you up as a stray wandering behind a restaurant dumpster.
thin , scarred from an embedded collar ..
my heart melted
From that soulful shine still there in your Rottweiler eyes and gentle smile when you looked at me.

I picked you up and gently whispered , I won't hurt you.
You melted in my arms as if to say thank you.

I tended your scars of life , as you did mine ..
together we moved forward and shared many miles of smiles on the other end of that leash
and ran carefree together in those ocean waves of life.

When I feel the salt air on my lips and waves at my feet ... I know you are right there with me my friend
My ^ Marmaduke ^
I miss us

This afternoon you were with me I know...
I walked into the livingroom where you would lay with the the radio always playing ..
Today , the room was oddly silent when I walked in the room.. No one but me was home.
I turned the radio back on . The very song that played one year ago today As I held you so tight
Played softly one more time ... And I I closed my eyes and remember our love.

Remember Our Love

I was chosen today
I'm learning to fly
the world took me away,
but please don't you cry

And I chose you today
to try and be strong
so please don't you cry
and don't say that I'm gone

When you're feeling alone
just remember our love,
I'm up near the stars
looking down from above.

Remember our love
In a moment you'll see
that I'm still here beside you
when you're thinking of me.
