In Memory of Carbon

Carbon,  is 9yr's old, Black Lab.
Birthday  Sept 11th, 1991
Diagnosed w/ diabetes on the 25th of june, 2001,
and has lost 22 pds, and come in weighing 87 pds.
He is very sick now and we are trying to get him leveled out with
20 units humilin 2xday, 430am and 430pm shots.
He's not eating any dogfood now, just goodhome cooking, chicken, turkey,
rice, and when he will not eat anything, bread w/ a dab of peanut butter.
He is bloodglucose tested here at home, with the glucometer elite, 
and then it is hooked up to my home computer, and makes a graph  chart for me, 
which helps me and the vet, understand his ups and downs,
you can reach me at Phyrefly@fwi.com 
thanks so much for the Rainbow email list and the pet diabetes website,
its more wonderful than I could of imagined finding.
Karen and Jim and Carbon,,,  # 1 son...... 
unfortunately Carbon has gone to the Rainbow Bridge
July 2001

The Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, 
that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of
our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food,
water and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable

            All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy
and content, except for one small thing: they each miss someone very special, 
someone who was left behind.

             They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops  and looks  into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body  begins
to quiver. Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green  grass,
faster and faster.  You have been spotted, and when you and your special 
friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be  parted 
again. The happy kisses rain upon  your face; your hands again caress
the beloved head, and you look once more into  those trusting eyes, 
so long  gone from your life, but never absent from your heart.
 Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.
