Gone but not forgotten... Send us a memory of your beloved pet.
Just this side of Heaven is a place called the Rainbow Bridge.
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.|
animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they miss
someone very special to them; who had to be left behind.
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.......|
Miss you Tink. I was just remembering the first day we met. I sat on the floor of the animal shelter and you came and sat in my lap -- that's all it took! A little ball of fluff who loved to suck on her brother's tail while he was sucking on my shirt sleeve. I will always have wonderful memories of a gentle kitty who freely gave her love and befriended everyone who came by. And when you were older, you were such a tolerant kitty to tolerate Emma's insistent grooming from your head to your tail. It was so sweet to watch. I take comfort in knowing that you had a long, lovely life and now reside in heaven with Baily, Nicky, Bodie, and Lovebug as your companion. Miss you sweet baby...
Ginger, you were my Christmas present of 98'. Not until recently did I find out that my mom got you from a pet shop that rescued you and your siblings who were found almost frozen to death. I am very glad that my mom was a part of this miracle. Only one month later we had a fire in our house and it destroyed everything, only left with ashes. Miracously you survived because, Ginger, you are a fighter and a determined animal. I love you so much! You put a smile on everyones face and were so full of life. You slept on my bed every night and greeted me in the morning. Last night i came upstairs to find you lying on the ground moaning and coughing. I picked you up and i think you passed not too shortly after that. I brought you down stairs and my dad tried to do mouth to mouth resecitation and we brought you to the vet. Unfortunatly we lost you. It was so sudden but I am trying to take this the positive way by remembering all the wonderful times I had with you. I am greatful for the 7 years I spent with you, not mad that I couldnt spend more years with you. I love you! My family, myself and god all have a special place in our hearts for you! I miss you and love you G-Baby!!
Gone but never forgotten... Isis LaRue was born August 8, 2005 and went to Rainbow Bridge on July 22, 2006. Isis LaRue was born to horror in the Hurricane Katrina disaster. There he was put through much fear until being saved. He survived the hurricane along with his brother, Mittens. After surviving this, he was sent to a place where he and his brother were to be put down to since they had to many cats rescued and nowhere to go with them. Castaways saved Mittens and Isis LaRue and they were sent to a foster mom, Kathy who raised them the next few months back to health. She loved them like her own. Later Kathy found Mittens and Isis LaRue an wonderful and loving permanent home. Isis LaRue was an awesome kitten. He ended up being the spotlight of a 5 year old daugter, Alexis's eye. He would allow her to push him in the stroller, rock like a baby and snuggle all times of the day. At night, he would snuggle under the blankets with Alexis and sleep with her most of the night. On Friday during the day he appeared to be fine. Friday evening, Isis LaRue started showing symptoms of something wrong. Immediately Saturday he was taken to the vet. At the vet, he was diagnosed with FIP. His new parents were told he would die within the next week and would suffer greatly in pain before he passed on. They had to make the heart wrenching choice to put him down and let him go to God before the pain hit worse. Isis LaRue will be missed dearly by both Alexis and her family as well as Kathy who stayed in touch with her foster cats. Mittens will miss his brother as well and maybe in time will get a new step-brother or sister to spend loving moments with. No cat will EVER take the place in their hearts as Isis LaRue was truly one of a kind. The Schultz Family and Kathy too...
My beloved Monster - I can never replace you or the love you gave me over the twelve years you were in my life. I will miss your swagger, snorring, and warm furry body curled up next to me in bed at night. I'll cherish the times in the mornings you would sit with me as I drank my coffee, and sitting with you outside watching the birds. I love you and miss you terribly.
It was six years ago this summer that my dearest Hallie Mae came into my life. I had been torturing my parents my entire sixth grade year begging them to let me get a guinea pig. I even crafted a ridiculously big poster one evening in hopes that it would persuade them. After much deliberation, they agreed, and it was only a matter of time before I would get one. Still on the look-out for the ideal guinea, my parents and I traveled to Nebraska for a family reunion that summer. Driving around Lincoln one day we came across a PetSmart. I insisted we stop the car. This was the place. This is where I would find my beloved guinea. I layed my eyes upon Hallie Mae for the first time, and she was perfect. After that, I never left home without her. She went on all of our camping trips to Idaho, Washington, California, Canada... everywhere we went, so did she. She had a happy, albeit short life. She passed away on Oct. 31, 2004. You will never be forgotten, Hallie Mae. Your squeaks, your nibbles, your kisses. I love you.
Wendy was a purebred sarplanac. We got her from my uncle Frank. She lasted our family a good 5 years. We miss her so much. I wish it was just a dream the day my brother woke up weeping when she died...I miss you Wendy
My dog Sasha was my very first dog. She had 12 puppies. We picked one of her puppies out and we named him Bear. Sasha is very loved. She wouldn't eat or drink so we put her to sleep. It was sad:( I didn't go to school for 4 weeks thats how much i love and miss her.) She's lucky to have a friend like me. Im saying right now no one can replace the very loved and missed and their first its not the same
I got Jazzmine when she was 8 weeks old and she was best buddy ever since. She loved to go camping, go for rides, go snowmachining and go for walks. When you mention the word "go" she was all excited, she didnt care what we were going to do, she was always ready. There was not a human she did not like, she loved everyone, and when I got a boston terrier puppy, she accepted her right away and would play fight with her all the time, she rolled on her back and let the boston attack her, they too were best of buds. Now we have a huge hole in our hearts as we just lost Jazz on 2/16/07 due to a neck and spinal condition, it was the worst day of my life. I stayed with her till the end and told her how much she was loved. We love and miss you Jazzer !!
I miss him so much but he will always be in my heart. And he was warm. I miss his kisses and his meow but i know he is in a happier place.
Tuffy (my dog) just passed away in November. She was getting old and my dad came home and found that Tuffy had a hole in her side and was still alive. He took her to the vet and the vet took some X-rays and said it wasn't a bullet that had made the hole and he didn't know what is was. So my dad had to leave the vet's office to pick me up from school and the vet called while he was picking me up and the vet had got to looking at the X-rays and found that Tuffy had bad cancer in her stomach and he said the best thing to do was to put her down. She probably would have lived a little longer if she hadn't had the hole in her. It was very sad and every time I see a dog I just break out in tears. I miss Tuffy!!
She was sweet and and always playful and Brownie's best friend. She died a slow and painless death of antifreeze poisoning. I miss her but she will always be in our memory and our hearts.
i miss u. You had your moments of terrorizing things but all in all he was a good dog. He came in to my life when he was 12 weeks old and sadly he got hit by a car. We will miss u harley
We had you since you were a pup. You were the cutest thing I've ever seen. When you turned two you had your puppies and even though most of them didn't make it, you still stayed strong. At five you got cancer and we had it removed. You beat that one. You always remained strong. One day my parents told me if I take you for a walk don't forget your leash but I figured you would be fine. I guess I was wrong. I guess I should have listened 'cause now you're gone and I blame myself. All you wanted to do was get to me when you crossed that street but a cop car going 50 took you away from me. Everyday I think of you and it makes me cry. I wonder if I'll see you again. I wonder if you will want to see me when I go into heaven. I just hope you still love me like I love you. I miss you so much Sam. You were still a puppy at heart. I'll never forget all the good times we had.
Dear readers, it has been two years since I lost my cat. I have learned that you need to spend every bit of time with your pet or when it dies you will regret every second you didn't spend with them. My cat was attacked by wild dogs while I was at school. We took her to the vet and they told us that she was going to die soon and to be ready when it happend. I felt so lost!
Ginger - you were such a great girl. We miss you terribly!
When daddy and I rescued you from being put to sleep in the Muskegon Animal Shelter in Michigan, you just stole our hearts! After losing you May 12,2006 a part of us went with you. You will be missed very much. You always were momma's boy but loved your daddy and sister sara (golden retriever/chow mix). She misses you very much and walks out smelling for you. I still wish you were here, but I know in my heart you always will be. Love, Mom and Dad

In 1996 my parents and I moved to a small horse farm they had purchased in NJ. A few months later a "visitor" arrived. He was a large cat with thumbs, yes thumbs. Not one of us had ever seen a cat with SIX toes, yet this cat had six on each front paw (It was so cool to see the mitten-shaped paw prints that he left in the snow.) After several weeks it became apparent that he had adopted us as his new family; he was there waiting patiently every morning and each night at the backdoor for his meow mix; so we gladly accepted the honor and quickly began to search for a name; nothing seemed right for this beautiful cat, so the nickname "Big Boy" just stuck. When the barn cat that we already had, Misty, became deaf and had a hard time seeing, Biggie keep a careful eye on her, making certain she didn't wander too close to the horses or near the road. When she passed a few years ago Big followed in her paw prints of showing his appreciation of us by bring the occasional chipmunk or mouse, in exchange for his meow mix. He rarely left the property and he spent his days with his German shepherd, Baron. About a year ago, Big lost his hearing and sight and Baron made sure to keep an eye on him so he didn't wander too close to the horses or into the road. Baron passed away in October of 2006, and Big Boy just left us this past week. I am sure he met up with his buddy in the great beyond. Biggie, you chose us and there is no greater honor than that! You gave us much love and no words can describe how much you will be missed. I am glad you are now with Baron, your partner in crime, but you will never be missed and never forgotten.
I just wanted to post a note about my puppy Baron. Baron came into our home as a Christmas present for my dad in 1995, but he soon became mine. He was a great judge of character and always let me know when danger was near. He spent his days keeping a watchful eye over our horses and playing with his cat "Big Boy". Whenever I would leave the house he would sit at the top of the driveway until my car was out of his sight. He left us in October 2006 and words cannot express the saddness and emptiness that is felt in my home. Baron, you will be forever missed and NEVER forgotten.
You were only 2 1/2 when you left us, and with you dying a piece of us died with you. We will miss your love, and companionship, we will miss you "grinning" at us. But most of all we want you to know we love you and always will, and we miss you terribly.

Lady was born May 1st, 1996. My wife and Dad brought her to my job in hopes of us keeping her. She was a Shepherd/lab mixed. When I first saw Lady she was inside of my wifes sweater and all you could see was a little black nose and a pair of sad eyes. I couldn't resist and agreed to adopt her. We gave her alot of love and a good home and she in return gave us 10 1/2 years of unconditional love and happiness. Lady was very special. She loved riding in the car and going for walks. On November 16th, 2006, Lady was called home to doggie heaven. She died in my arms. I placed her in a sealed container with her favorite blanket and buried her in our backyard, where I visit her every morning and anytime I can throughout the day. Lady was my one true friend and companion. She my be gone but she will nevr be forgotten I Love You, LadyGirl
On Oct.19,2006 our Brandy went to the Rainbow Bridge (1 day shy of my B-day). She left behind her son Remington (5 yrs. old) and me and her Daddy. Brandy has 27 puppies in her lifetime. We kept Remington. She had passed from cancer with no warning. Here is a picture of her with Remington. him on the left, her on the right. She will be missed more than words can express. We love you baby girl. You will never be forgotten or thought about. Love, Mommy, Daddy, Remington,& Buddy (cat)
Jack was a Maltese Poodle mix. He was an AMAZING dog. One windy day no one was home and our gate flew open. When we came home, the gate was open and he was gone. We put up signs everywhere. It has been months and he is still no where to be found. I don't know what has happened to him. I LOVE YOU JACK!!!!!!!!
Me and my husband wanted a kitten, so we got one.Her name was Kally. We named her Kally because she was from California. We got her when she was 9 weeks old. She loved her brown small teddy bear she used to beat up and play with. She was my husband's baby because she stayed on his lap and watched tv with him all the time and slept with him also. My husband is having a heard time that she is gone. She passed away too young at the age of 3 months. She had FIP. I miss her dearly. So I am doing this for my husband in memory of our beloved KALLY AZZARA. WE KNOW SHE IS IN HEAVEN.
When I saw you in your adoption cage on March 12,2001 I knew you were the one. You were 5 yrs old and your family didn't want you anymore. I don't understand how because you gave me and your Daddy so much joy and love. I named you Peach Cobbler but we ended up calling you Korn you seemed to like that better. We miss your snuggling, talking and silliness. You made me so happy and I will never forget our time together. Sister Hiney misses you too. A yr later I still cry for you and think about you everyday. We lost you to cancer 8 yrs later on August 29,2008. You touched my heart and I know one day we will be together again, until then I miss you and love you so much. Love always Mommy,Daddy and Hiney.
MawMaw got you when you were 7 years old.
You were living with a lady who was going to a nursing home and could not take you with her because you were noted as a aggressive dog or a biter. You were indeed an Aggressive dog.
You hated your ears beging cleaned or you nails cut.
We had to muzzle you for all of your check ups.
Then you fell very sick 7 years Later.
You had Pnemonia and had Congestive Heart Failure because of it. When you were diagnosed with the terrible life threatening Pnemonia, you were also diagnosed with a cancerous tumor.
Mawmaw was very heartbroken when we found out.
You gave us two more months then on December 1st, you had no more life left in your heart and you were dying.
We love you Tuesday.
You were a good "LADY" besides an occasional bite or growl.

He was my first dog and he was a faithful and loyal companion to our
family while here on Earth. He brought us lots of joy.
I lost my little dog Chunks today. He got very ill yesterday and died to complications from Parvo. I really believed he was going to make it. I think of the first day he came into my life. A face so adorable, he didn't even look real. Sure you dug out of the yard, never listened, and liked to run in the house with dirty paws, but what I would give to be chasing after you right now. I miss you so much, it has not gotten easier after your death. Thank you friend for being there for me to cheer me up, make my son feel comfortable when he came to visit the house. Ultimately I just want to thank you for every moment I was able to spend with such a wonderful creature. I will never forget you. You have permanently etched a place in my heart. When you left a little part of me went with you. Thank you for listening to me and I love you Chunky boy. I never wanted you to leave me and I am sorry your beautiful little life was cut so short. There were so many things I wanted to show you. I love you.
A place to remember your beloved pet friend.
