Goodnight Cassie, sleep tight ♥

We are having a very sad time :-( My big sis, Cassie, very sadly passed away this week following a serious illness. Cassie had seemed completely fine until just over two weeks before she left us. Muzzle is heartbroken and crying lots and we are all missing her.

Cassie was 12 and a rescue Bullmastiff cross Muzzle and Dad adopted when she was 12 months old. She has been so lovely and gentle with me since I arrived from rescue as a pup and we had lots of great times playing and snuggling together. She really was a beautiful girl and we can't quite believe she has gone.

Muzzle is too upset to write much right now but is going to write a proper tribute to her, on her blog, once she is ready.

Here are a few photos - one of the five of us taken just a few months ago when everything was ok; one of Cassie and me snuggling when I was a pup; and one of the last photos taken of Cassie.

If anyone would like to light a candle for Cassie, that would be very kind.

Sleep tight Cassie, we will love you always

Minnie! I know how devastated I was when my big sister, Raja crossed over the rainbow bridge. You try to be brave because your muzzle needs you right now. Our thoughts are with you.

oh gosh...Mom just got back from a weekend trip and saw your sad post. We are so sorry to hear that Cassie moved on to the Rainbow Bridge. She sure was a beautiful girl, and it sounds like she was a wonderful sister.

RIP Cassie

So terribly sad to read your post. There is never a good time to say good-bye to those we love. One more day is always our wish...

Thank you ever so much for coming to visit my bloggie. But oh, I am so sorry to hear about dear Cassie. She was such a Most Beautiful girl and I know you and your Muzzle will miss her a lot.

I am sending gentle brindle wiggle and wags across the miles. I hopes you can feel them.


Mango said...

Oh Minnie Mom! I would love to offer my large and striped self for snuggles. I know it wouldn't be the same as Cassie, but certainly better than a pointy bottomed labradog. I know how much you must miss your big beautiful girl.

Thank you all for your kindess.

Mayzie and Mango, thank you so very much for your brindle wiggles and snuggles. We really do miss them here.

Muzzle & Minnie-Moo
