Capri – Forever in our Hearts

Yesterday, little Capri the Italian Greyhound (playfully known as Twinkie) crossed the rainbow bridge after fighting a hard, debilitating battle against IBD.  She is the daughter to her adopted humans John and Joanna, and her adopted Italian Greyhound fur-brother – Couper. Although she was only with us for 2 short years, she made an impression on everyone she met. Despite being petite, this Italian greyhound was quite the feisty diva. She will be forever missed and have a place in our hearts.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this tough time.

A Dogs Last Words: Written by ROMP Rescue in Memory of Capri

Mom and Dad, it is my time
Capri said to us that day.
I am too sick to continue on
But in peace I will leave today.

My life was great, a dogs dream
You did everything you should.
My pals said I got to have the family
That they only wish they could.

From treats to toys and clothes galore
I was spoiled rotten through and through.
I knew I was the favorite, dad
But dad, you were my favorite too.

And mom I want to thank you
for making sure that I was loved
And fighting for my life everyday
Even when push came to shove.

To Couper, my big brother
I don’t want you to feel lonely now
When you close your eyes, I will be there
Barking at you through the clouds.

To the rainbow bridge, she then said
as she closed her eyes that day
And in our heart of hearts I swear we felt
Her soul run and trot away.
