Coleen Garcia Crawford’s dog died on the day of her wedding and we are emotional

We The Pvblic

Just tears of joy.

Coleen Garcia Crawford has us emotional after her recent post about Bambi the Teenager, the pup she received when she was just 9 years old.

Coleen says that Bambi has been her “most constant and consistent partner” she’s ever had in her life. She believed that Bambi was her guardian angel.

She tells the pvblic that she’s had her fair share of ups and downs in life, “Only a handful of people know what I’ve been through in my life, and all of them know the role that Bambi has played in it.”

The actress says she could tell countless stories about her, and “almost everyone who’s known me for a long time has probably already met her.”

Even before she met her husband Billy Crawford, she had several scares, thinking that she would lose Bambi, but she always proved to be the “strongest little baby.”

Ever since she was a little girl, Coleen told Bambi “over and over” to never to leave her side until the day she got married.

At almost 17 years old, Bambi grew weak, but Coleen told her as often as she could about the pup’s promise to hang on until the day she got married.

“On the night before we had to leave for the wedding, I saw how weak she was.. It broke my heart,” she wrote. “I hugged her and prayed to God, thanking Him for her life and companionship; for using her to remind me that I was never alone, and that someone was always watching over me. I thanked her, too, and I told her for the first time ever that it’s okay for her to rest now.”

“I prayed to God that if it were to happen, I just hoped that it would happen while we weren’t home so that I wouldn’t have to see it,” she added.

On the morning of the actress’ wedding on April 20, 2018 at 8:26 am, she received a text from her driver that Bambi had passed away. However, Coleen’s reaction was not what she expected.

She said, “I was purely filled with joy. I couldn’t even find it in me to be sad because I felt it would make me so greedy. How could I ask for more when God has blessed me with this much?”

“She left me not a day before, not a day after, but waited until the actual DAY of my wedding. How amazing is that? All the tears I shed for Bambi now are never sad; only tears of joy and gratitude at the thought of God ushering me into this new chapter of my life, after all the turbulent times I have had to endure in the past.”

“A clean slate, a new beginning.”

#BambiTheTeenager was given to me as a gift for my 9th birthday. Ever since that day, I sincerely believed that she was my guardian angel because she was the most constant and consistent partner I’ve ever had in my life. Only a handful of people know what I’ve been through in my life, and all of them know the role that Bambi has played in it. I could tell countless stories about her, and almost everyone who’s known me for a long time has probably already met her. Way before I met @billycrawford, I’ve had several scares and thought I was going to lose her, but she proved to be the strongest little baby. I always told her, ever since I was a little girl, to never leave my side until the day I get married. Over and over. Time passed, she turned 5.. 10.. 15… almost 17 years old, and she grew very weak, but I would tell her as often as I could that I was still hanging on to her promise for her to be here until I get married. On the night before we had to leave for the wedding, I saw how weak she was.. It broke my heart. I hugged her and prayed to God, thanking Him for her life and companionship; for using her to remind me that I was never alone, and that someone was always watching over me. I thanked her, too, and I told her for the first time ever that it’s okay for her to rest now… I prayed to God that if it were to happen, I just hoped that it would happen while we weren’t home so that I wouldn’t have to see it. Days passed. On the morning of my wedding, April 20, 2018 at around 8:26am, I woke up to a text from our driver, telling me that Bambi had passed away that same morning. How I felt was unexpected. I was purely filled with joy. I couldn’t even find it in me to be sad because I felt it would make me so greedy. How could I ask for more when God has blessed me with this much? She left me not a day before, not a day after, but waited until the actual DAY of my wedding. How amazing is that? All the tears I shed for Bambi now are never sad; only tears of joy and gratitude at the thought of God ushering me into this new chapter of my life, after all the turbulent times I have had to endure in the past. A clean slate, a new beginning. 🙏🏻
