This past weekend we received George's ashes from the vet. It was such a blessing to spend the past 4 years with him. We took this weekend to enjoy and remember all the craziness that we've gone through. He gave everyone life and energy, there was never a dull moment with him. I will never forget the day we took a shower with tomato sauce. I took him out for a walk then all of a sudden I was getting sprayed by a skunk. YES! A skunk. I instantly knew the stench was horrible. I honestly can't forget about that smell, we were covered with skunk juice. It was ridiculous. I literally had to get a bunch of tomato sauce and showered him with it. It's funny cause while I was showering him, he couldn't stop licking himself. It was something that I could never ever.... ever forget.
He lived up to his name "Curious George" named after the monkey that creates chaos (just like him, hence the skunk story). He was the BEST, never seen a handsome dog like that ever. He was courageous and a risk taker but well disciplined. The last days were hard though, I can still hear his footsteps in the living room. It was a GREAT run, I had a blast.
I will miss you bud, here's to our crazy adventure.
The Rainbow Bridge
'There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass. When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. Old and ill and frail animals are mad whole. They play all day with each other in the beautiful sunshine..
They are happy and content, but there is one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth.
So, each day, they run and play until the day comes when, suddenly, one stops playing and looks up! The nose twitches! They eyes are staring! And this one suddenly runs from the group! You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her into your arms and embrace. Your face is kisagain and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be seperated..."
