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.
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….
RIP dear Grandpa, you were very much loved in the sunset of your life.
The ER vets took him in right away. The fluids and glucose helped a little but not enough, he was fading away. His body was tired and was failing. It is with a very heavy heart that we decided the kindest thing to do for this sweet, sweet dog was to help him over the Rainbow Bridge.
Our dearest Grandpa Spanky, I wish we could have given you another 20 years. But we gave you 6 weeks, where you had a full belly, a soft bed to sleep in, the best vet care we could get you, and you are loved. Oh how much you are loved! Fly free, sweet angel …Grandpa Spanky.
When he was pulled from the shelter he was so frail, and so sweet. He was blind and had been for a long time. He had significant arthritis in his spine. His teeth were so rotten, and that combined with the smell of ammonia was overwhelming – the conditions he came from were pretty horrible.
We got those rotten, infected teeth pulled. It took 3 baths to get rid of the ammonia smell. He was getting accupuncture, cold laser, and chiropractic to help his painful back. That hunch in his back was going away and he was doodling all over the back yard in the sun until he decided it was time to nap. Then, he would lay down and take a nap. He enjoyed snuggling with his foster family.
We’re glad the our rescue got him out of the shelter and and that we got him 6 good weeks in a loving home with the best care we could get for him. We wish we could have given him more time but a lifetime of neglect and poor care finally caught up with him.
