Rainbow Bridge

The Rainbow Bridge is the theme of a work of poetic prose written some time between 1980 and 1992, whose original creator is unknown. The theme is of an other-worldly place to which a pet goes upon its death, eventually to be reunited with its owner.

Dogs add so much to our lives, I can honestly say that my life is full of wonderful people and they are people I met because of my dogs. They fill our lives with joy and love us no matter what. It's so sad when they have to go. I alway found comfort in knowing that they had a great life and they...

Rocky - Gotcha day Feb 2 2008 to April 6 2015
We saw the cutest little puppy on PetFinder a few days after helping Shadow cross the bridge on a cold and snowy January day. His name was guy, found in a snowstorm all alone on a lady's porch. He was found the same night Shadow crossed over the bridge. I just knew Shadow had sent him for some reason...
Rupert Ole 08/08/04 - 01/20/15
I can't believe I'm writing this, and I'm going to keep it short. We lost Rupert yesterday. It was very unexpected. We're not sure exactly what caused it, but the vet thinks that some birdseed that he had eaten from on the ground under the feeders was rancid or had something toxic...
sometimes these types of decisions are hard to make, but they are made wisely.....GINGERD most likely had the best three months with you.

Hurley 2007 - 2014
With a heavy heart and very much saddness I had to put down one of the most loyal dogs I've ever known. Hurley was my rock and a huge part of my heart is missing. He was just an amazing dog, I have comfort in knowing that so many loved him and that he had a great life, he would go to work with me...

He's gone.
Gunner, Gunther, Guns, Lugnut, Spawn of Satan, at the age of 9 months. We were going for a run, stopped in the side yard and he broke from me to visit the neighbor. He ran into a car at full speed, went under a tire. I carried him in a blanket in the neighbors truck to the vet. Too much damage. Probably...

Run free, GingerD 6-3-14
I made the very difficult decision to euthanize GingerD today. I haven't posted much about anything other than her health problems. She was a good girl until either food was involved or she had pain - then she would bite. It started from the first day she came home, but I did not recognize the behavior...

Our sweet Jessie is gone; October 1998- February 22, 2014.
We had to help her over the Bridge yesterday morning. It was too painful to post yesterday and it's very hard still. Many of you had been praying for her. She had been making a little progress since she came home from the hospital Tuesday but still not eating much. Then Thursday her appetite was...

Loss of my baby Perseus
I lost my 4 year old baby Perseus within two and a half days. My malitpoo, who was a jumper, got into a container of gum that I didn't know was on the table and ingested all of it. I wasn't aware that the ingredient Xylitol was in it and is highly toxic to dogs. My baby threw up all of the gum...
RIP Cooper
I haven't been on here in years probably, but it was the first place I thought of when I had to share our news. I knew everyone here would understand. We got Cooper when he was 8 weeks old, right after we bought our first home. He was my first baby. I trained him and he enjoyed learning more than...
