A Fond Farewell from Rumpy

Dear friends,

I have fought the good fight, but I told Jen I am tired and ready to go.

One last smile before I go.

I am sad to say good-bye to Jen and to the kitties- even June Buggie.

And I am sad to say good-bye to you.

But my body is tired, and no amount of sleep or cookies makes me feel better.

So remember me fondly, and know that no matter what, your old pal Rumpy loves ya!

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  28. Awww! Rumpy, you did your absolute best! ❤
    Jen and gang, from experience, there are no good words to express the loss of an animal companion. For me, the only comforting solace is knowing our beloves are no longer in pain, and I picture vividly their romps of wholeness and freedom with fur flying, and eagerly involved in their favorite adventures. Godspeed, Rumpy! ♡♡♡

  49. Oh Rumpy – I am so sorry you had to leave now but last year I got the same message from my Angel Shiloh – I hope you two meet up, up there in heaven. I know it is not easy for Jen now but she knows it was what was best for you and she loves you too much not to do that.

    Jen – I am so sorry that you had to say goodbye to Rumpy – I really hoped and prayed that you would have more time with him. Praying for you now to find smiles and sweet memories of your dear Rumpy.

  109. Oh Jen. It is the saddest of days. I can imagine the Rumpster up there where there are big spaces to run around and lots of trees to mark. Hope he finds Jamima and they are friends. Sad, just sad. Don’t disappear. Not so cheery, H☹️

  115. Farewell Rumpster. You will be missed. I’ve only known you through the posts here and on facebook, but it’s clear you’ve touched the hearts of many. I even remember how I found the blog here. I was doing a google search for Malamute pictures. I saw one of you sitting on a deck. Your looks are so close to that of my Dakota that I thought someone had stolen a picture of him and claiming it as their own. (further inspection of the background soon showed that it wasn’t Dakota).
    It’s clear from the posts and from the comments that you are well loved, I have no doubt that there is a Silver Harness waiting for you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

  120. Good-bye Rumpy. You leave a large empty spot. Well-done, though. You brought a lot of love and inspiration to the world and you leave Jen changed for having known You (in a very good way). There is no higher praise for a friend. Well-done, indeed.

    Posted by KDKH | April 27, 2017, 9:23 AM
  121. I am SHOCKED and deeply, deeply heartbroken by this news. Jen, I am so deeply sorry!!!!! Everyone loved Rumpy soooooooo much!! (I feel awful because I thought you had stopped blogging because I stopped receiving your blog via email), I didn’t know anything about Rumpy being ill until now. I wish I could give you a hug. Thank you for sharing Rumpy with all of us, he brought us many, many laughs, smiles and sadly…now………a flood of tears. He will be sorely missed and remembered always, with love ((((hugs))))
