DUer Bayard has lost yet another precious member of her family...

Her family of critter kids.

She found her horse Rhett dead yesterday. Too young to die. Apparently he died from a broken neck or a severe concussion due to his running into a tree.

In the last month she lost her sweet Jessie kitty who had traveled with her from their Calif home to her place in Kentucky. And earlier she lost her dear Bear, one of her gorgeous Great Pyrenees.

Just thought I'd let this big-hearted family of critter-lovers know that one of us is suffering too much grief.





On edit: Folks, I think she'd much appreciate a personal note from you.

It hurts a lot to lose a furbaby. And you lost a few in rapid sucession.That must be so painful. My heart goes out to you.

Her home email has recently been hacked; so, just send her a note via DU mail.

I have lost so many loved ones. I understand how this just slams you, I think we all do. I am so very sorry. There is something unique about losing a horse, at least I think so, but they all hurt so much. I am sending you warm wishes and warm thoughts hoping you can find more relief as the days go by. They were lucky to have you and you to have them. Hugs to you Bayard.

I am just so very, very sorry for all her losses. All life is so precious and losing our innocent animal family members is extremely painful. R.I.P. Rhett...run free...

Your loss is overwhelming and inescapable. Will it recede, possibly. Will it disappear, never. I suppose it is the price we pay for the perfect joy and love our best friends give us. I will give Alexander, my Great Pyrenees, an extra hug tonight in honor of the one you lost.

So much grief in a short period of time must be unbearable. Sending you love and light in your mourning.

May it be beautiful before me.
May it be beautiful behind me.
May it be beautiful below me.
May it be beautiful above me.
May it be beautiful all around me.

Above and below me hovers the beautiful
I am surrounded by it
I am immersed in it

The mountains, I become part of it
The herbs, the fir tree, I become part of it.
The morning mists, the clouds, the gathering waters,
I become part of it.
The wilderness, the dew drops, the pollen
I become part of it.



From the doorway of rainbow,
The path out of which is the rainbow,
The rainbow passed out with me,
The rainbow rose up with me.
Through the middle of broad fields,
The rainbow returned with me



With the rainbow hanging high over your head, come to us soaring.

With beauty before me
With beauty behind me
With beauty above me
With beauty below me
With beauty all around me

It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.
