I dont know if Josh will be posting here but I felt like Sway deserved her own Rainbow Thread! I have followed her story since I joined this site and feel very much like I have lived the horrible disease with her!

She is now waiting for her Best Friend and bodyguard in the World! May you rest in peace sweet one! Run free of pain precious Sway!

From Josh, California

sway passed away at 12:45 pm, in my bed with me laying right next to her.
my mom was also here, as she was visiting me on vacation from ohio.

rest in peace sway, my favorite of all times.
thank you for being everything i ever wanted or needed.
the 1 being that could do no wrong; that could always brighten up my day, did it perfectly for 8+ years.
i love you forever - more than anything in the world; i'm so proud of you and i will miss you every single day.
i cannot wait until i can see you again,
and until that moment i live better having had you in my family, and having you continue on in my heart.
please watch over me as i keep trying to do what i was put here to do.
god bless you sway, you are the greatest.

thank you for everyones prayers and thoughts and love and support and the list continues...
my best to everyone who has an animal with this horrible disease. may god heal your pets, may you cherish every second of every day of every week of every month of every year you have with them.

again, i am so proud of my sway - i love you.

I was so afraid this was coming soon after the last news from Josh's thread here. :sad: I'm so sorry, Josh :grouphug: You both fought so hard.

She's now truly an angel, watching over her angel here on earth. Your memories will sustain you; your love will reunite you.

Josh, I am so very sorry that Sway lost her battle. :sad: You were her soulmate and a wonderful dad that did everything possible for your sweet girl. :angel: :grouphug:

:rip: Sway :candle:


They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

So sorry about Sway. He was a good friend to you. All of the pets who have departed are waiting for us. We will see them again years from now. In the meantime, they are experiencing peace and harmony.

sleep peacefully little one.
:candle: a tiny part of me is so very happy she is not in pain anymore.

Josh, she is waiting for you somewhere pain free. each day you go without her she is whole and waiting. your love and dedication kept her alive for 8 years. that is a remarkable thing.

I have been silently following Sway's story from the beginning. Although I never enjoy seeing any Life go, I feel sometimes that Life may have relief when it moves on. May Sway run healthy and happy wherever she is. :cry: :angel2:
