In Memory of Mudge Elizabeth Ripkowski
The joys of rescue, they are so many….
Mudgie rescued us and our smiles were many,
She put up with us when our days were bad
She loved us through eyes in her heart
She reminded us once again, the real meaning of love.
Thank you for rescuing us sweet Mudge and I know you
and Buddy Ray will be there waiting for your “Daddy Man” and I when our time
on earth is done.
Sweet Mudge Elizabeth Ripkowski, “Mudgie Pudge”
rescued us when her previous owners decided she wasn’t worthy of their
family any longer when their neighbors cat got in the yard and she decided
it shouldn’t be. Of course, we weren’t happy that happened, but it did. We
all make mistakes… She was so frightened & lonely after her family dumped
her and “no longer had time for her anyway with the kids ball
games and all” that she became an instant “foster failure”
and a permanent member of the Ripkowski family. Six years and many happy
memories later, our sweet girl crossed over the rainbow bridge to be with
her canine brother, Buddy Ray. When she became a part of our family, we
promised her she would always be with us and we would always be with her.
That promise was kept and she passed over the Rainbow Bridge with her head
on her very own pillow, covered with her blanket, her mommy lying with her
in her arms, her daddy with his arms around her and her 4 legged brother
Skip lying with his paws over her licking her face at 9:30 PM, April 9,
Wait for us sweet angel girl, when God decides that
enough puppies have fostered us, and our time on earth is done, we
will all be together again, in Heaven….
