Reverend Padre here. We have very sad news to repurrt. Our Woofie Cuzin Bruiser had to be helped to the Rainbow Bridge on Monday, February 6. He was approximately 11 years old.
Aunt Patty and Uncle Chris first met Bruiser about 5 years ago. Bruiser had been found running around the streets of South Side in Pittsburgh. He was picked up as a stray and turned in to Animal Rescue League, a shelter in Pittsburgh. As a beagle / basset mix, Bruiser probably followed his nose and wandered off from his former home.
Aunt Patty and Uncle Chris volunteered at that animal shelter. They helped by walking dogs and taking them on day trips to give them some cage breaks and fresh air. Bruiser was one of the dogs they walked.
When Bruiser got adopted by a very nice lady, Aunt Patty and Uncle Chris were happy for Bruiser, but they also missed him. They kept in touch with his adopter. In June 2008 Bruiser’s adopter had to be hospitalized and was in declining health, so Aunt Patty and Uncle Chris took over as his adopters.
As you may remember, Mom and Dad helped Aunt Patty and Uncle Chris when they moved to Meowssouri in July 2008. If you want to read about that Adventure, see Mom and Dad’s blog that they never post to anymore.
Bruiser lived the good life, filled with cuddles and long walkies, trips to see fambly, and lots and lots of love.
Bruiser’s health had been declining in recent months. He had many trips to the V-E-T, and lots of medications to take.
Bruiser was helped to The Bridge on Monday, February 6. He was laid to rest in the woods behind Aunt Patty and Uncle Chris’ house in Meowssouri.
This is a short film to honor our Dear Sweet Woofie Cuzzin Bruiser. May he rest in peace.

Aunt Patty and Uncle Chris and our Cuzzins Rainbow, Muse, Cinnamon, and Toast are all very sad right now. We would appreciate it if you could keep them in your purrs, woos, and purrayers.

Bruiser ate well, slept well, lived well, was well-loved. And he is now forever in their memories.

I am very sorry Bruiser had to go to the Bridge. I can tell he was a good boy. Rest in peace, Bruiser.

So nice of your aunty and uncle to give Bruiser a good home and lots of love. We are sad that their time together was short, and know that their hearts must be a bit broken.
Hugs to them.
