It is with great sadness to report to you that Lolita crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge this morning.

Ester and Mark Dichter who adopted Angi’s Buddy, opened their hearts and home to foster Lolita on Saturday after she spent two nights at Dr. Barbosa’s office. This morning she was in respiratory distress and I met them over at Hollywood Animal Hospital where Dr. Sessa was between surgeries and said she was “dying”. Her gums were pale and she was struggling.

During the three days she spent with the Dichter’s, she was so loved and had 24/7 care and attention. She didn’t die abandoned at a shelter. She died knowing that people loved and cared for her in her final days.

There is a HUGE hole in my heart tonight. Had to let our Weezy go over the rainbow bridge this afternoon. She has taught us a lot in the 3 short years that we had her. We got her from Compassionate Pug Rescue as a 9-year old. 2mo after we got her, I noticed a growth on her belly that ended up being an aggressive type of cancer. We did 2 invasive surgeries to remove it. She was a very healthy and happy puggie for over 2 1/2yrs. Thursday she got sick and the vet found a large growth by her spleen pushing on her organs. She went down hill before we could do an ultrasound on Mon. I am extremely grateful for the unconditional love and affection that she gave to us. Words CANNOT express my love for Weezy. We will always adopt senior pugs from Compassionate Pug Rescue! There is nothing like the love of a senior rescue.

Hello CPR folks, foster parents, fellow rescuers and pugs,
It is with a sad heart that I am writing to tell you that Moe (formerly known as Goliven) passed away this December. We had him for almost three years, and he was the sweetest dog we’ve ever had. Thank you to his foster mom and grandmom, Marcia, and others who helped us connect. He was old when we got him, but so grateful to have a big yard and a cozy place to cuddle. He was at least 13 when he passed. He loved to sit on the rug in the kitchen and oversee any meal preparation. We miss him greatly. Rest in Peace, Moe.

RIP Sweet Otis- We are heartbroken that this precious boy crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge. He had been at the vet to determine why he loses his balance. Dr’s thought it could have been a brain tumor and he appears to have had a stroke.

No matter how many pugs and others we rescue come into our lives, each and every one of them stay within our hearts forever.

It is with sadness that we say that this morning we had to put down Gidget. She had had another stroke and we thought her quality of life was going down. We had her almost 6 years! We will always miss her cute little face…she was so sweet. It was almost 6 years since we got her from you in Miami before the hurricane. She was an amazing little lady!

Tribute to Luna from Lynn:

“My daughter and I were very blessed to take in Luna as our foster this past March. Luna fit in like a glove with our family from day one. It was like she was always meant to be with us. She became the very best of friends with our pug Polly who guided our seeing impaired Luna throughout our home. Luna always wanted to be next to us and never left our side. She gave us so much love and joy in the seven months she lived with us. Luna will forever be in our hearts and part of our family.”

“We will miss you always my sweet and beautiful Luna.”

“Rest in Peace Beautiful Luna – you were so loved…”

8/30/11 Update on Daisy: Little Daisy was undergoing surgery today to remove a damaged and infected eye, however she did not make it through the procedure. We here at CPR are heartbroken that such a sweet girl has crossed over the rainbow bridge while she still had so much love to give. While we often don’t understand why things happen the way they do, we know the doctor and staff tried their best to save her. Rest in peace sweet little girl and run free…

Run free little Teddy, like the young spirit you can be again.
