Cappy is our October 1, 2017 Pup of the Week


This week our friend Mama Jackie Ross had her heart light go out when her senior rescue dog Cappy gave up her long fight to stay with her mom despite Cappy's slowly fading body and arrived here at Rainbow Bridge accompanied by huge clouds filled with her mom’s, and our parents’ tears, and many angel hugs from her friends who came here before her.
Some dogs arrive at Rainbow Bridge, and other pups like Cappy arrive a little at a time.  First, her vision appeared, and we put it in the house where she would be living.  After that, her hearing came, and we put it in the same place.  A short time later we got the muscles that made her back legs move.  Little by little more parts arrived until Cappy passed over, was reunited with the body parts she had lost and was whole and young again.
Before that day came Cappy, her mom, and Dr. Steve tried very hard to keep Cappy on the mortal side.  Cappy got a special diet, which she gratefully ate.  She had control of her bodily functions.  But time was against her. Her back legs were failing her sight and hearing were gone, and each day the burden of life became a little harder to carry.
The most difficult thing for her mom was knowing that there was nothing she could do.  But she still found it in her heart to do the most important things.  She kept Cappy comfortable, pampered her, left work early to spend more time with her, and let her know every last second of her mortal life that she was loved.
The biggest change in the dog world since I was born is the ability of angels to prepare dogs for what will happen when they become immortal.  Cappy arrived knowing all the steps she needed to become an angel and quickly get to her duties watching over her mom, visiting her in her dreams, even if her mom won't remember it, borrowing the body of a flying creature to visit her mom in another form, and being a ghost, that vaguely seen thing in the corner of her mom’s eyes, or that unexplained noise in the middle of the night.
Mama Jackie may not be able to hear Cappy’s heart still softly beating in their home, but the connections between their heart will never be severed.  
All of us turn to dust someday, but the love lasts forever.
