The Rainbow Bridge

There is a bridge connecting heaven and earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of it’s many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass. When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always for and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are you again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.

There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So each day, they run and play until the day comes when all those pets you have loved suddenly stop playing and look up! Their noses twitch! Their ears are up! Their eyes are staring! And they suddenly run from the group. You have been seen, and when you and your special friends meet, you take them in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pets. Then you cross rainbow bridge together, never to be separated again.

I remember losing my first dog as a child.

It was devastating. It was like losing a family member; just like that my best friend was just…gone. We wanted to create a space where we not only celebrate our puppies that we have now in our forever homes, but celebrate those puppies that once made us so happy.

This page is to honor and remember those puppies that loved us so unconditionally while they were here and are here no longer.

Waiting at the Gate

I explained to St. Peter
I’d rather stay here
Just outside the Pearly Gate.
I won’t be a nuisance, I won’t even bark,
I’ll be very patient and wait.

I’ll be right here chewing
A celestial bone
No matter how long you may be.
‘Cause I’d miss you too much,
If I went in alone–
It wouldn’t be heaven for me.


While Ollie was only with us a short time he was the definition of love, curiosity, and joy. There was such an enthusiasm and happiness that flowed through little Ollie that he beamed with merriment and his bark was hilarious!
