Rainbow Bridge

In Memory of our beloved friends

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 and 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 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. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away 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…”

You didn’t leave us in winter with its deep blanket of snow all around. You didn’t leave us in the spring as tender green shoots push through warm soil toward the sky. You didn’t leave us in the warm hazy lazy dog days of summer. The dog days were yours to enjoy. But in the… Read more

Luna (aka Macy) came into our lives August 17, 2013.  She was a rescue from Brownsville.  We met her at the Meet and Greet at Petco.  We were so excited to have her that we did not ask if she rode well in a vehicle or what she was used to eating.  She loved going… Read more

Sunny crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on September 10, 2020.  We adopted Sunny (fka Brooke) from Golden Beginnings in June, 2010.  Sunny was the sweetest girl ever.  She had a rough start and remained scared of any sudden movements.  Sunny had mange and no one wanted to adopt her.  We thought she would be the… Read more

To Sutter You no longer greet me, as I walk through the door. You’re not there to make me smile, to make me laugh anymore. Life seems quiet without you, you were far more than a pet. You were a family member, a friend, a loving soul I’ll never forget. It will take time to… Read more

We were blessed to have been chosen to take Andy into our home when he was 9 years old in the summer of 2019. He was perfect in so many ways. He felt right at home immediately and we spoiled him rotten. When COVID hit we were home all the time but he never got… Read more

“What a boy”! That was our joyful call to Buddy every day. It made his Dad and I laugh to see his Golden smile take over his stellar face. Buddy and all his friends are running free in God’s garden, on the far side of the Rainbow Bridge. We have so many wonderful memories of… Read more

Murphy came into our lives as an 18 month old foster in 2010 and we soon became foster failures.  He was so sweet and easy and I delayed posting him on our website, knowing we had to adopt him.  He was a fun loving boy who loved to hunt “lizzies” of which he played with… Read more
