Pet Memorials

The Rainbow Bridge 

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its 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 food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young 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 one suddenly stops playing and looks up! The nose twitches! The ears are up! The eyes from the group are staring! And this one suddenly runs from the group.

You have been seen, and when you and your friend meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never to be separated again.

Charlie

June 1993 – May 29, 2008

Charlie (the cat) has left the theater of life. He was well known for his comedian roles, but did star in a few dramas (like sticking his nose down a ground bee hole and getting a bite on the nose which immediately ballooned up). He was best known as “Charlie Barlie” and “Buddy”. He was a natural comic, very gregarious and in his youth he was a very physical comedian. Charlie looked at life as a pure joy and he lived it with great zest and exuberance.

In his younger days he would tap his guardians arm, his eyes would be dilated with anticipation and then he’d run off letting her know he was ready for the game of ‘chase and tag’ to begin. If she didn’t respond, he would come back and tap again. Another common game was “Halloween cat”. Charlie would see his guardian look at him, and he would signal by arching up and jumping forward as cats do around Halloween. Again, it was a signal to “let the games begin”.

He always came when called and answered when spoken to. He was well known in his neighborhood for walking on a leash and visiting neighbors. Often he was in the same room of the house as his guardian and always came to greet her when she arrived home. Making people laugh and smile was something he was very proud to do. As he aged he became even more affectionate and he would cozy up to his guardian, even sleeping on a pillow facing her and reaching out with his front leg to place it across her neck. To the end he had great days.

Just on his last day, he was taken to the vet due to a bloody hair ball throw up during the night. All blood work proved to be fine except his red cell count was 18 when normal is 30 and low normal is 24. Clearly there was a problem. His guardian knew he was very pale that morning, but in no way expected the news received that afternoon. Charlie had lung cancer and was bleeding from somewhere and was breathing harder than normal. The doctor feared another episode and Charlie was already weak from the low red cell count.

He was brought home to once more have the chance to hide in the bush at front walk and see if a chipmunk would run by and he could catch it in his mouth (and they had done so many times). Fortunately, he was very soft on them and his guardian always managed to get him to drop them unharmed, although once his male guardian let him in the house without noticing the live chipmunk and another comical adventure began. Fortunately, it had a happy ending for all. Whew! The chipmunks living in the courtyard did move out, but they still ran along the front from unit to unit and Charlie would lie in wait.

On his last evening he and his guardian together walked along the front of Charlie’s estate and then along the back where he had enjoyed many good times. It was warm and the sun was still shining.

Charlie, his guardians, and a best friend returned to the vets that evening, May 29th at 8 pm. Charlie was a gentleman (not his usual vet personality) and peacefully passed with his guardians holding and talking to him. He is greatly missed. It was so much fun and a total joy living with Charlie for fifteen years. The house is a quiet and lonely place without you buddy boy. I love you Charlie. Wait for me on the Rainbow Bridge and we will play again.

Liam

November 1994 – February 29, 2008

Liam began in my home the way that most dogs do, as a foster dog. A rescue from a shelter, I started out with the intentions that he would be adopted out to a nice family. He had other ideas. Every weekend we trotted out to Pet Adoption Network’s adoption event and I placed him in a crate to await his new family. If I stayed at the event he would turn his back to the public and stare at me, if I dared leave his sight he would bark and bay until I returned. If I tried to leave the adoption event I would soon get a call to return to get him as he would not stop barking. Soon it became fruitless to even attempt to show him, even if a family did show interest he would turn his back on them as he only had eyes for me. Finally I gave in and the rest is history, he lived with me until it was time to say goodbye. I had five beautiful years with him and I wouldn’t trade a minute. He fit in beautifully with my family and gave me 100% every day. Especially at the end he tried so hard to fight the inevitable and rallied each time we made the “final” appointment. I couldn’t have asked for a better friend, and there surely is a hole in my heart that he once held. I miss him terribly and wait for the day when we will meet again.

 Peaches -the Kitty Clark

November 1995 to May 2004

Peaches was a one in a million kitty. Her story is the same as most, abandoned with her brother after five years with one family, she found her way to the shelter then into my arms. I couldn’t have asked for a more loving, gentle girl. She was diagnosed with Osteoscaroma (Bone Tumors). opted for an amputation, but x-rays discovered that it has spread to her lungs. I made one of the most difficult decisions I’d ever made. I had to let her go. It was a sad and beautiful moment. It is a gift to be a part of that with them and that we even have the ability to end their suffering. It was only three short weeks from diagnosis to the end. She held a special place in my life & in my heart. There will never be another one that could even compare to her. I will miss her all the days of my life. Her brother & I will keep her close in our memories. Sleep well my darling, I will see you again someday.

Chessie and Hamilton

The day I picked you up at the center to take you to my foster home, I found the most beautiful little family I had seen in a long time. Your tiny mother was barely 9 months old, a child herself. You were two tiny, round babies with huge, searching eyes, wondering. But so many thoughts were haunting me. Chessie was a red patch tabby, and I had never had one survive. Just a coincidence, I told myself. Donna had told me, “Don’t give them names ’til they’re stable…” , but I did. They walked around like little drunken sailors, wanting to run and play, but losing their balance and stooling all the time. I could not litter train them, they seemed to have no control. It turned out that they had spinal cord damage at about waist-level, which was causing all their symptoms. Whether it was genetic or the result of abuse, we’ll never know. They were humanely euthanized May 6, at only 7 weeks old. I cried like a baby. I’ll never forget them. They were two of the most adorable kittens that I have ever seen. It was a gift to be the one chosen to help them. I know they’re running and playing in heaven, now, and yes, I believe animals go to heaven. It is a far, far better place they have gone to, than they have ever known.
