Sissy by Monika, Jessica and Jeffrey / Monika, Jessica, Jeff, Edith, Mrs. Meow and Falco

August 1991 you picked us.
I really wanted a German Shepard and when we got there you haven’t been one, but so sweet, and have followed us all the way. We decided to leave without one, but you came behind us and didn’t wanna leave us, so we token you with us and named you Sissy like the Queen from Austria and for us you still our Queen, you’ve been and always will be. You stayed with us for 14 ½ Years and than I had to make the decision and my god it was the worst one I had to make for my life.

I lost a lot of loved people over the years but nothing can compare it with this decision I had to make for you. Baby, we love you and never ever can take somebody the place from you in our hearts.

You’ve gone so many ways with us from Germany to America and back to Germany, you’ve been with us for better and worst times and helped us to get through with it all, you’ve been a friend, a relative, a unselfish dog, never thought about yourself and have been caring always for others. You defined the hole family, but has been always friendly, everybody who met you loved you!!!!!

You’ve been the greatest dog in the world, you have been easy going, have been listen on the word, we could take you all over the world with us and everywhere, you’ve never made a problem and have always been handsome, you even made you‘re last race on December 04, 2005 on the second place, I‘m so proud of you, how you handle it all, and that just all because you loved us so much and unconditional.

As Jessica our Baby girl got older you protected her all the time and she felt save with you no matter where she went with you she always felt save. You protected us all these years.
On the age with 8 months you’ve been diagnosed with HD (Hip Dysplasia) on the right hip and it never was really a problem for you till one year ago. Three Years ago you diagnosed with Cancer (while you’ve have been already 11 Years old I decided not to have you operated on it, because I thought it will make it worse for you and I would loose you a lot earlier and still think it was the right one!!!)

In October we got a new puppy (a German Shepherd dog) and you played so nice with him like you were young again, but since three weeks you’ve gotten worse, you broke down so many times, your eyes and listening got worse (you didn’t listen on your name anymore just by clapping the hands you would look up and you almost couldn’t see anymore) because of the pain of your hip, than you have been falling a lot times and couldn’t get up anymore, than you’ve been falling down you’ve slipped and hurt your healthy hip and that made it. You couldn’t walk and you broke down a few times during the day; we went to the vet. You got shots and pills, but it didn’t got better; than last week you got that bad cough and got shots and pills for it again; the cough got better, but than yesterday in the morning you broke down and didn’t wanna get up in that ice-cold snow and I worried so much about you, helped you to get up and walk again and I know, you just did it for me!!!!! Oh, my god you loved me so much than you even token the pain for me.

We had an appointment at night with the vet because about the checking of your cough, but since you couldn’t walk anymore and Jessica had to carry you, so I had to make the decision and believe me, I didn’t wanna make it and I hate myself for it, but I thought this is what I have to do for you and I own it to you, because you have been here for us for all these years and I felt so guilty, but I had to make you feel better, without pain, just letting you go to the “RAINBOW BRIDGE” it broke and still does break my heart, because I know there
will be never somebody like you!!!!!!!

We love, care and miss you, “gosh damned” a hole lot. Sissy, we love you and I really hope that you will take my last words last night to you, before you got to sleep away than you really will wait for me on the “RAINBOW BRIDGE” and take me in your paws again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


“Rainbow Bridge”

For Sissy Wallin

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colours. 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. Those old and frail animals are young again. Those who have been maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.

But there is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on earth. So, each day they run and play until the days comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up. The nose twitches, the ears are up, the 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 in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again 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 separated.


In loving Memory,
Monika, Jessica and Jeffrey
