They Call It Puppy Love

This cutie pie looks just
like my little Weezie.

I absolutely LOVE my "Fur Babies"

They are my constant companions,
especially since all of my family lives

For Natasha's Party this week I want to share
PUPPY LOVE sung by Donny Osmond.
Her link will be below.

It was first performed my Paul Anka,
and then Donny had a big hit with it
when he was around 14.

I actually like this version the best.

Now if you haven't had a good therapeutic cry
in awhile then continue on...
Get your tissue ready!

I have included the poem
The Rainbow Bridge,
sung by Sarah McLachlan.

The 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....


Louise was 15 yrs. old.

What a beautiful, sweet post. I still cry when I think about my fur babies that are gone.

Love the Donny version also. I've wanted to go to Vegas so bad and see the Donny and Marie live show. I've always loved Donny, as hokey as that sounds. Hubby just rolls his eyes like he's in pain so I know he will never want to go to that show/concert.

Of course this made me cry. I still grieve for every animal that I have lost. I hope to see all of my babies again some day. That Sarah song always breaks my heart.

Beautiful post. I lost my 'baby' after 13 wonderful years together, and still get very sad even after 2 years has past. She was my constant companion. Rainbow Bridge always bring a tear or three to my eyes. Love the 'Puppy Love' song.

Oh, Bunny Jean! I pray this is true! I lost my little Penny 15 years ago, but it still feels like it just happened. She was 15 at the time and was full of problems. The vet couldn't do anything more to help. My little fur-babies help easy that loss, but when one of them heads toward the bridge, I have that same pain again! Love the Donny version - my oh my are we getting old or what!

Hi! I cried too reading this post for my kitty cats.

Hi Bunny Jean
I was touched by your tribute to your lost babies. We lost our big
(168) boy three years ago but still
talk about him all the time. We have such precious memories of him.
I do believe we will be reunited with our pets in heaven, as with our loved ones. It will be a great party!
Thank you for inviting me to your
party. I hope to hop over Wednesday
I also became a follower!

That story pierces my heart every time I read it...

Natasha in Oz said...

We lost our dog a couple of years ago and vowed not to get another one as it was so hard on the whole family. Isn't it amazing how connected we become to these little (or big) balls of fluff!

Thanks so much for linking this beautiful post to my Pinning & Singing link up. I can tell this was written from the heart.

Best wishes,
