Companions Remembered

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....

Scarlett was a rescued dog that suffered hugely at the hands of a previous owner.  The Pings took her in and did everything in their power to help her recover.   She died August 9th, 2008.  Her anxiety level and previous injuries did not allow her to return to a normal life.  She is an example of what uncaring and abusive people can do to dogs.  Thanks to John and Shawna for their caring in making the last months of Scarletts life as good as it could be.

 

This is Cody Logan, a Standard Poodle. He blessed the Logans with his dignity,grace,and courage from March 14,1995 to August 28, 2007. He was their special boy and he taught them to live with heart and love at all times and in all situations.
