Sun Sign:
Rainbow Bridge
Quick Bio:

November 25th 1986

He loved to be brushed, riding in the car or in the basket on his mom's bike

Ralphie hated to be left alone and taking so many meds for so many years.

Favorite Toy:
Blue rubber ball, rope "fuggie" and rawhide sticks.

Favorite Food:
Loved to share grape fruit pops with his daddy!

Favorite Walk:
He loved to walk in the kitchen searching the floor for food!

Best Tricks:
When he was a "youngster" he wouldn't eat a treat until you said okay - he would turn his head away from the treat.

Arrival Story:
Ralphie came into my life through Merryfield Kennels in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I thought he was sick when I first saw him - a sales girl was holding him in one hand and he wasn't moving at all. We went into a "puppy room" and she put him on the floor to play - he instantly went into a playing frenzy that ended when she picked him up again. He went home with us that day and graced my life with love and happiness for 18 1/2 years!

Ralphie was an amazing Yorkie who overcame many physical ailments. His wonderful vet of many years, Dr. Arch Gordon, and I had the - "this could be it" - conversation many times, but Ralphie always proved us wrong and bounced right back. He lived to be 18 1/2 years old and remained very much a puppy until the last year he was with us. Ralphie left for Rainbow Bridge on May 31, 2005 leaving a huge void in our hearts and lives. He chose to leave for Rainbow Bridge while he was with Dr. Gordon, not allowing us to be with him during his final moments, probably wanting to spare us the heartache. That's how we will always remember him - the gentlest, most loveable Yorkie who rarely barked, just a mellow little boy who loved butterflies, lizards and flowers! He will always be our precious furson, loved and missed by his mom and dad.

Don't weep at my grave, for I am not there, I've a date with a butterfly to dance in the air. I'll be singing in the sunshine, wild and free, playing tag with the wind while I'm waiting for thee.

Mom loved me best!

Mommy likes this poem very much, she just read it and now love drops are rolling down her cheeks.

I Loved You Best

So this is where we part, my friend,
And you'll run on, around the bend,
Gone from sight, but not from mind,
New pleasures there you'll surely find.

I will go on, I'll find the strength,
Life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave,
Share one last look, before I grieve.

There are others, that much is true,
But they be they, and they aren't you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
Will remember well all you've taught.

Your place I'll hold, you will be missed,
The fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
Take with you this...I loved you best.

-Jim Willis 2002


Thank you Dogster!!!

Would my friends do something very special for me, please? Light a candle for a dear Catster friend, POO, who has been diagnosed with an inoperable malignant tumor in his throat. Treatments do not promise much hope so his mom and dad Jim are going to love him lots and keep him comfortable and happy for as long as possible. Poo is just 11 years old, the same age as my sisfur Aggie who just left for Rainbow Bridge, and their stories are so similar that Aggie has told Poo she's now his very special Guardian Angel. Here's the link for the candle group. Thank you for doing this for a dear friend in need of prayer.
