Rainbow Bridge

 Next Page »

Just this side of heaven is a place called 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.... Author unknown...

In August, 2013, my little Augie came to live with me. I had just lost the third Pug of three Pugs I had and my husband had passed away in June, 2013. I was very fortunate that Larry and Cathy had a Pug available. Augie kept me company during a very rough time. Augie was 8 yeas old when I adopted him and he was going on 16 years old when he went to the Rainbow Bridge. He was a healthy Pug and followed me wherever I went. On January 14, 2021 he couldn't keep anything he ate in his little tummy and slept most of the day. On January 15, 2021, he was very lethargic and could not take any of his medication so I took him to the Emergency Vet. They did x-rays and bloodwork and discovered that his liver enzymes were terribly high and he was going into liver failure. I thought about his 16 years of life and the fact that he wasn't hearing well, or seeing well, and all the options the vet discussed with me. Augie came into my life when I needed him and helped me through a rough time after my husband and three Pugs passed away within months of each other. I did not want Augie to suffer like my husband did. He left for the Rainbow Bridge peacefully and is not suffering. I will miss my "little Boo Bear" very much. He was my constant companion.

Tooey aka Tupac
Tooey came to the rescue with the hopes that we would be able to find out what was wrong with him and be able to resolve it Unfortunately his issues were far too many to save him. His mom loved him enough to put her trust in the rescue to do what was best for him. We were thee to help him cross the bridge. Run free beautiful boy.

Ike broke my heart on January 4th of this year, it was only then that I realized that he simply couldn’t live forever. I know he did the best he could, and blessed me with almost 16 great years! Fierce, loyal, fearless, funny and smart, Ike was without a doubt, my best friend. Ikey was full of life, loved to eat, play hide and seek, chase, tug and chew on his “baby”. While Maddy loved walks, Iker was not a fan, but he always went anyway...He always picked up the pace after the halfway point (so cute). Ike, you made it your job to protect your family early on, and kept fighting your entire life. You are forever in my heart, thoughts and with me eternally. Thank you, Ike, for job well done.

Maddy I lost my little Maddy girl on October 17th of last year, and still feel like she is always at my side. Maddy had a huge heart and even though her Dad was clearly favorite, she loved all people and all people loved her. One of Maddy’s passions included walks—Everything always seemed brand new to her, and I loved to watch her go. Maddy also loved food, watching and interacting with the TV, cuddling, ultra comfort and playing with her brother, Ike. I know that nothing I write can articulate how much Maddy meant to me, but I do know that she had my whole heart. Maddy, you will never leave my heart, my thoughts or my side. Thank you, Ian
