Rainbow Bridge




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 . . .

Jenny came to us from a Nebraska puppy mill. I remember on the trip home I thought she would love to be held. I was wrong. She did not even like to be touched. We brought her to our home. She had just enough sight to get around without running into things. She spent her time in the kitchen in a dog bed. Then with each day she showed us more and more who Jenny really was. She begain to explore the whole house, follow us everywhere, and demand to be cuddled on our laps. She knew the minute I entered the room. She would sit cuddled with her foster dad until she heard me. Then he knew she was going to jump. He would put her down and she would race over to my chair to join the dog pile. Jenny had just begun to be so happy when we lost her which is what made us so sad. I know she is perfect now and is happy playing with all her friends, but to us she was perfect here too.

Jessie was our first foster from DDR and was such a blessing. I believe in love at first sight and that was surely true with her. She was my constant companion in the kitchen and I would sing to her while cooking. Jessie loved her outings to the city park with us and she made a couple trips to WA with us. I miss you Jessie and you'll have a place in my heart forever.

Joey was our very first foster for the Humane Society, before DDR ever was a thought. Joey was so afraid of people, when you approached him he was splay out on all four legs as close to the ground as he could for fear you would hurt him. It took a very long time, lots of love and another outgoing dachshund named Phoebe and a great lab named Hercules to help Joey learn to trust and then love us. Joey taught us the true meaning of unconditional love. Rest in peace my little friend, chase the rabbits with Hercules, keep Grandpa Dick company while you wait for me at the Rainbow Bridge.
