Good evening friends.
Tonight we pay tribute to a fallen angel named, Cosmos.
Cosmos crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on November 24th, just this past Thursday. He died of several illnesses, but hypothyrodisim and polyarthritis were the major ones. He was just shy of 11 years old upon his passing.
Cosmos belonged to our friend, Bri MaCathur and family. I had corresponded with Bri the past couple of days and got a real sense of what Cosmos meant to this family and everyone he had encountered.
Here’s what Bri had to say of Cosmos, her everything;
Cosmos was a Border Collie Retriever Mix. Although, unlike Retrievers, he never enjoyed the water. The most he’d go in is to his knee and lay like a hippo.
Despite his several illnesses, up until a just few weeks ago, you’d never guess his age. It never stopped him from enjoying life. Bri mentioned, Cosmos was a therapy dog for some, a friend to others, part of the family and practically like a brother. As animal lovers, we can all relate to that.
Cosmos was so special even non dog lovers loved him. He had a very gentle and calm way about him. Most people joking called him, “Zen Dog”
He loved chasing foxes, but if course, never caught one. His favorite place / comfort zone, was in my dad’s car. He enjoyed any car, but his in particular was special. If we thought he was lost, or if he was afraid, all we’d have to do is check the car, and he’d be there.
He was my everything, and I’m still in shock that he is gone. It happened so quickly. I just am glad he’s no longer suffering.
Sammy & Family wants to thank Bri for sharing Comos’ story with us. We also want to thank her for making the world a better place, one animal at a time. One random act of kindness may not change the world, but it changes the world for the recipient of that kindness. Bri and Family offered that kindness to Cosmos and made his world. And it’s like people always say, “We rescue them, and they rescue us”, how true that is.
The world is a better place because Cosmos was in it. He offered comfort and healing to anyone that he encountered. Cosmos is gone, but never forgotten. He was born on January 12, 2006 and he passed away November 24, 2016.
No lives will go in vain. No pain will go unnoticed. Amen. Scott Smith for Sammy & Family.
