  1. I’m sad. Rest in peace dear old lady. She was something, that’s for sure. I admired how she could hold her own against Joe and Ash.

  2. This poem helped when we lost our precious Meghan- hope it helps you too. Love, Melissa

    The Rainbow Bridge

    Because of its many colors, the bridge connecting Heaven and Earth has come to be known as the Rainbow Bridge.
    Just this side of the Bridge, there is a land of meadows, hills and lush green valleys. When a beloved pet dies, this wonderful place serves as their new home. There is always an abundance of food and water and warm sunshine. Old and frail animals are young again, and those who have been maimed are made whole. They make new friends and play all day.
    There is one thing missing from these carefree surroundings, though, the companionship of their loving masters. Time passes and another day comes when one of them is distracted by a particular scent. With nose twitching, ears at attention and eyes staring in delight, this one runs from the group……
    You have been seen!
    As you embrace, your face is kissed again and again and again, and once more you look into the eyes of your loyal companion.
    You cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never to be separated.

  3. I’m so very sorry to read this.

    After losing my Westie, I took comfort in the Rainbow Bridge story…and just have to think that someday there might be a reunion of souls.

    John and I can appreciate what you and your family are going through.
