Rainbow Bridge

I am very sad to report that Mr.B crossed Rainbow Bridge during early June.

I have to content myself with the thought that we did everything we could to keep him alive with a good quality of life. 

The life after his passing was extremely tough for us. He was our security blanket and all the dreadful events, such as Brexit, mass shootings, terror attacks, etc, felt like body blows to knock us over again and again. How much we missed his furry cute face…

My iPhone screensaver which was deleted after his death.

I was sinking in the depth of despair and didn’t know how to get out of it. The emptiness I felt was numbing and I was a grief-stricken zombie. Then Hubbie suggested if he could invite my mum so she could comfort me. 

Mum’s visit materialised at the end of July and her presence comforted me immensely. She stayed with us for 2 weeks and during her whirlwind holiday, she urged me to have another dog. 

Even though I felt guilty towards Mr.B, I really desperately missed a life with a furry companion. I wanted to reminisce about him but I was also afraid of doing so because I would be too sad about his absence. With flood of tear, I confessed my dilemma to Hubbie and we decided to look for a puppy.

After calling around with a list from the Kennel Club, we found a Yorkie puppy. 

Meet our Bella.

She is 8 weeks old. Very naughty and energetic.

With her on our side, we can talk about Mr.B. How cute he was and how we enjoyed the life with him. Through Bella, Mr.B comes alive again…

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of Mr B. I feel heart broken too because I’ve been reading about him via your blog but I’m sure it’s nothing compared to your years of companionship and love for him. Sending you hugs!!!

    Bella is super duper adorable! I’m so glad you’ve adopted another furry pal to help you deal with your loss but also remember the great times you guys had together. Looking forward to hearing more about Bella in time to come! xxx

    • Thank you for the kind words. It means tons to me. I just couldn’t bring myself up to write the post until I was 100% certain that I could deal with my feeling towards his death.
      I still crack up every time I remember Binnie but Bella’s presence definitely lessens the pain.
      Yes, I will start updating my blog with Bella! She is still very young but she is so gutsy!!

    • Thank you for your kisses & hugs. I still cry when I remember how Binnie was. However, I can do it more freely as I have Bella to comfort me. She is the best medicine to heal my broken heart xxx

  2. Oh dear – I feel so sad for you as I could read how much you cared for Mr. B. It is a very, very good thing to have another puppy. We never forget each of our beloved dogs even as we add another to our life story. Please don’t feel guilty about having another dog. Mr. B had a special life with you and you did all you could for him. Bella looks an adorable sweetie. I hope with all her fun and puppy antics she helps to remind you of all the good times you had with Mr. B.

    • Yes, he is gone and after almost 3 month, I still cry when I think about him. Looking his photos is still no no to me. One day I can look at his cute face and reminisce how lovely the life with him was. Until then, I just concentrate on raising Bella (who turns out to be quite a tomboy)😊

  3. My heart literally broke when I realised you had lost Binnie – I am so sorry it has taken me this long to realise. Somehow your blog fell off my reader list for no reason and i had assumed you were no longer writing. Bad bad bad. Mr B wasn’t just a dog he was a living piece of unconditional love and a true character xxxxxxxxxxx for you.

    Your Miss B though..she is a little wonder and a minx! And as if by magic, as I am writing these words to you and rainbow has appeared…and I am smiling

    Kate xxxxxxxxx
