Another Smushie has crossed the Rainbow Bridge

We are very sad to announce that our former FBRN foster, Marge has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. 

Marge's forever family contacted Momma the other day and let her know that Marge passed away because of heart failure. Her family is so sad because they only got to share a few months with her, but loved her dearly.  We're all very sad too because we love all the Smushies we share our home with. They all take a little piece of Momma's heart when they continue on with their journey.
We know Marge is up in heaven, playing with all the loved ones we miss so much.

The Smushies

Oh, my heart just sank when I saw the title of this post.

Marge was such a doll, and I know that the unconditional love that you and her forever family showed her made her final months here special. She crossed the bridge knowing that she was loved and valued, and everyone deserves that.

Run free, sweet girl. You are missed.

Aww, I'm with Pearl...when I read the title of the post, my heart just broke! Marge was so cute and special, just as everyone who's been on the Smushie Ranch as been. At least she found a forever family that loved her and learned how to be loved from the smushie family. She's sure running free and happy and telling everyone that she knew love!

Oh no! This is such sad news. I am so sorry Marge did not get to enjoy more time with her forever family and them with her. Thank goodness for you and them, she knew the joy of unconditional love and commitment.

My eyes puddled up with tears when I read this. I know how much you loved Marge.. just as you love all the smushies.
I know that your love made such a difference in Marge's heart. You showed her what love was all about.. and peacefulness. And when Marge got her forever home,, she got more love yet- because she knew she was chosen.
I know Marge had peace in her heart as she left for the Bridge because of all the love she received.
The holes in everyones heart,,,will be here for awhile.
Marge will never be forgotten,,,,
run free sweet Marge,,, run with Betty, Emmitt, Stubby, Max Dog, Luke, Tanner,Toddo and all the many others that I have come to know and love.
May the broken hearts heal.

Oh Smushies, Smushie Mama, and Marge's family, I am so sorry to hear this sad news. Marge seemed like such a sweet, dear girl with a bit of 'tude, too! The picture of her being held by her forever home says it all: She was a lucky girl, as were those who loved her! I hope Marge is showing everyone at the bridge her gift of balance (first toast the nose, and then warm the butt!) Godspeed, Large Marge! xoxo Rebecca, Sir Humphries & Bella Bean

marge was a very special girl who was so lucky to have you in her life.

you gave her such wonderful gifts of love, comfort and relief from discomfort with all the things you did for her when she arrived.

she never would have felt so good and found her wonderful forever home without you.

you are so special and we love you all more than we can say!

we are sending you and marge's family all of our love and hugs.
