Group active since Sat, Jun 21, 2014

This group is for all to share the pictures and stories of your sweet little furbabies who have gone ahead of us.

They are all together playing and having fun while they wait for us to meet them at the Rainbow Bridge.

Feel free to share a photo of your sweet little one.

Post a message when you want to let them know you are thinking of them.

Come here for comfort and peace and to honor those who loved us unconditionally.

The Rainbow Bridge

The Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called the Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor.

Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.

His bright eyes are intent.

His eager body quivers.

Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.

The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

We received a sympathy card from our vet for Rocky and 2 book marks with his paw print on them. It was so nice of them to do this and they had a tree planted in Rocky's name.

a dog's last will and testament

I saw this on a friends fb feed. I know the pain of losing or helping a pet on in it's journey. I thought it might help someone else, who struggles with dealing with their loss. I totally understand, you may not be ready to adopt, or foster; that is a decision everyone has to come to in their own time. I do have a suggestion to help ease the pain, why not give a memorial to a local shelter in your dogs name?

This is a dog's last will and testament:

"The Only Thing I Have to Give''

To the poor and lonely stray I'd give:
my happy home;
my bowl and cozy bed;
soft pillow and all my toys;
the lap which I loved so much;
the hand that stroked my fur and sweet voice that spoke my name.

I'd will to the sad, scared shelter dog the place I had in my human's loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.

Please, do not say, "I will never have a pet again, or the loss is more pain than I can stand.''

Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope and give my place to him.

This is the only thing I have to give.

Goodbye Maddie Moo!

My son and his family had to help Maddie Moo on her journey today. His wife Jen, is devastated as Maddie has been her constant companion for 11 years. Little Zoey is too young to understand. Kaiser Zak's dog will be lost without Maddie...the whole family is grieving. Maddie and I had a special bond, I'm an early riser, the kids are not. She loved when I came to visit, as I was always ready for an early morning walk. It made me aces in her book!

3 years ago we adopted an 8# puppy, who 6 months later weighed 80 lbs. he did a whirling dirvish move and tore my miniscus in 2 places......hubby said, "you have to get rid of the dog, we can't have him re-injuring you." i found a really nice home for Dutch, with a much younger family. Dutch fell in love with Caleb (19) took a little longer for Caleb's folks to fall for Dutch. They were very happy to get a dog already house broken, as they all work and don't really have time to. He could also sit and stay and came when called......his brakes didn't work too well, hence the torn miniscus! I'm happy to report Dutch and his new family are doing SO very well. I saw Dutch this am, out for his Sunday morning ride with G'pa Todd. I don't think he remembers me, but he's always happy to see me. Dutch weighs over 100 lbs now!
