Forever Remembered

Cleo Trentham
Cleo Trentham

Died: Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Her name was Cleo. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at approximately 3:10 P.M. and is at peace.

Cleo came to live with us on February 3, 2010 from the Norfolk SPCA. Only God knows when she was born. Her age was a mystery however one Veterinarian told us that she was probably between 15 and 17 years old.

Joanna noticed Cleo and something drew her to the little girl. We decided that she should come and live with us and with our other fur kid, Cesar.

Over time she lost all of her teeth and her hearing and she had eye issues that reduced her vision. Through all of this she remained a sweet loving girl who, like Cesar, was a devoted Mama’s Baby.

Sometime around January 2018 Cleo’s behavior changed. As the weeks passed it became apparent that she had Canine Cognitive Dysfunction which is similar to Alzheimer’s Disease in humans. As time passed the Cleo that we knew faded as the disease progressed. We obtained medicine to help with her anxiety and agitation but as the weeks passed her dementia became a constant torment to her and it came time to let her go.

We remember the frisky Cleo who had never learned to play with toys but who enjoyed tossing a sock in the air. We remember Cleo doing her “happy dance.” We remember Cleo who wanted to be near Joanna and who put up with Cesar’s attempts to engage her in play. We remember Cleo washing her face like a cat and dashing through the house chased by Cesar. We remember that she loved to take naps and had many unusual sleeping positions. We remember Cleo charging at the television barking at the tiger on the screen. We remember all of this and more.

I read somewhere a question about what is the hardest thing about having a dog in the family; the answer was “saying goodbye.” How true, how very true.

Fifteen years ago when we brought you home, we couldn't possibly have imagined what an immeasurable gift we had just been given. Your quiet and loving gentleness, your extraordinary intelligence, your unwavering devotion, and the way you always seemed to know just what we needed to brighten our day were but a few parts of your sweet soul that made all who met you instantly love you. And we, as your Mom and Dad, learned so much from you, Molly, making us better human beings as we traveled life's road together. You were beyond question a rare blessing from God for which we are humbled and grateful for the privilege of having you in our lives, which you so enriched in ways too numerous to count. And though there is a deep, deep sadness and overwhelming emptiness in our hearts now, we know one day we'll see you again, racing up to meet us, your favorite stuffed toy clutched in your mouth, your ears pulled back in sheer joy that we are all together again. And you'll be welcoming us with those beautiful, expressive brown eyes that will say:
"Welcome home, Mom and Dad. I've missed you so much..........................
can we go for a walk?"
