Forever wouldn’t have been long enough... 🐾
It is with tear filled eyes that I must say that we have lost one of our own tonight. With paws that have touched thousands of hearts with his story, Rex took his steps across the rainbow bridge. It was sudden, heart wrenching, and with little warning; but his little body had fought too hard for too long. We are assuming that his nasal issues were the thing that finally took him from our hearts, but it is hard to say.
I will say this: I lost a best friend tonight. Rex was the closest thing to a child that an animal could be in my heart. With him, a piece of me was lost too... only with memories and photographs to keep close to my heart.
His strength to overcome near death at the hands of humans and still be one of the most loving creatures I’ve ever met will forever remind me of what is possible.
Rest easy my sweet boy... you are gone, but will live on in my heart until we meet again. 🐾💕
He will be cremated and the ashes will be returned to us, but I wish these were plans I did not have to make right now.
I will say this: he may not have fully been able to understand the love so so many people had for him little soul, but I know it touched his life in so many ways. Thank you to everyone who has followed his journey with us through out the years, and especially those who have prayed and donated to his recovery in the past. I will never be able to thank you enough for giving him these extra 2 1/2 years. •
If anyone would ever like to donate to his memory, please do so by donating to @virdenpetnetwork in Rex’s name. Without them, I would have never had the pleasure of having this beautiful soul in my life.
