3/25/2005 - 10/10/2020On October 10th I had to send my baby girl Cleo to cross the Rainbow Bridge. Making the decision to let her go was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. My heart is shattered. She was a gentle, loving soul and had the kindest eyes. She was always such a good girl and loved by all. I couldn't have asked for better. Not seeing her every day, not hearing her nails gently tap the floor as she walked around the house, not being greeted by her when I walk in the door, not hearing her nudge my bedroom door open at night to make sure I'm ok, not being able to just go hug her, all deeply saddens me. I loved watching her frolic around the yard, roll around in and dig her nose in the snow, seeing how happy she was looking so pretty especially after a bath and haircut :-), the way she would nudge her head under my hand when she wanted to be pet, and so much more. Her happy face and wagging tail warmed my heart to the fullest. What a blessing it was to have her from the day she was born and watch her grow from a tiny playful puppy to a wonderful, cheerful lady. She brought such joy to me and all those around her.
To my baby girl, what a journey we have had. You saw me through the good, the bad and the ugly. You were able to uplift my spirits in a way that no one else could. I am so lucky and thankful that I was able to have you as my best friend and companion for so many years. You were my constant. I miss you so much, words can't describe. I cry every day at the fact that you are gone, but take comfort knowing you are no longer in pain and still with me in spirit. Go find Ceaser, I know he's been waiting for you (tell him mommy loves and misses him too). I will see you on the other side.You will always have a special place in my heart. Mommy loves you dearly baby girl!

Cleo and her mom came and lived with me for a short time. She was my best friend , I was her nana. She is the only puppy that would not kiss you, she would nudge you with her head. Gentle , sweet baby. She is at rainbow bridge where we will meet again. Love her to death RIP.Pat O'Connor - October 27, 2020
What a beautiful tribute to Cleo. She was an amazing dog and had such a gentle soul. She is up in heaven with many other doggy friends that have crossed the rainbow bridge.Vicki Lessord - October 26, 2020
