Dearest Diva Rooo,
You fought till the bitter end.  Now go and play with Muffin, Papa and Jack.  You are in good hands (and paws).  Always remember your mommy's did everything they possibly could for you.  Go on.  Cross that bridge and have a ball!!!  Be sure and look for Kari.  I let her know you were coming.
Hugs and butterfly kisses,

Here's a picture of a rainbow we took last January at our family home in Tucson.  Diva-Roo is now enjoying the view!!  She is now also visiting this so many of our beagles friends who have passed over the rainbow bridge.  They are helping her get around.  She is finally at peace - no pain. 
God bless!

A little secret I learned, that, that extra heartbeat you will feel now and than, that was placed there by god, for he put little Diva's love right there for you to always remember her by.
A remembrance of her song.

We are so sorry to hear about your loss. It's hard when you lose a pet because there aren't usually any bad memories that we have with them. Although it may not seem it now, time heals all wounds.
Val, Joe, Joe Cool and Melvis
For everything you both did for Diva from puppyhood through her 
passing you must remember that your little girl knew love that was 
unconditional because of you.  Nothing can help you right now during 
your grief  but please know that there are a lot of people here who 
love you and care about you - when you're ready to tell your stories 
(funny, sad and heart-touching) we'll be here for you.
Hugs to you at this sad time -
Pattie Scully

I am so sorry to hear about Diva Roo. May she run and play, free of pain, with the other pets who have crossed. Here's a poem that I've shared before when I've had friends suffer the loss of a fur child. I hope someday someone will share it with me when the time comes for me to say goodbye to my beagle girl. My thoughts are with you.

Diva, you will always have a very special place in our hearts.  Bella will miss all the fun times she had with you at Beagledor and Daisy is sad that she just started to get to know you.  But, we all know you are now romping thru the grassy meadows on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge with Admiral Snoopy.  God speed, our sister.

May you romp freely, snuggle with all you meet and sleep in peace.

I'm so sorry that it was Diva's time to go to the Bridge.  She's 
whole & happy again and will be waiting for you when it's your turn 
to make that journey.  Remember, she's not gone, she's just "gone 
ahead" on the next part of her journey.
doGspeed Diva.  Find my Sprite when you get there.  She lived with 
beags for years here on earth and even though she's a bit bossy, 
she'll show you the ropes!!! You were loved by many and will be missed.

Sydney, "the girls" & Marshall


I'm so sorry to hear about Diva. You worked so hard to help her overcome that devastating illness she had. Rest assured she's feeling pain free now and the rescue angels are watching over her with extra special care. They know all the wonderful things you do for others!!  Bella, myself, Sammi and her 5 little girls all send lots of hugs & caring thoughts your way and to Diva.  Take care of yourselves and get lots of rest.  Let me know if there's anything I can do.   Jane 


In loving memory of a
beautiful and brave
little girl.
