They say memories are golden.
Well, maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
No one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway,
And heartache make a lane.
I'd walk the path to heaven,
And bring you home again.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

Love and miss you forever...........................


Happy Thanksgiving My Friend

Another year has passed since you hae been gone another Thanksgiving this makes thee & soon it will be Christmas again...Lots of time as just flew by and you are still missed as much today as you were yesterday. Our hearts are still so very heavy we miss you so much but we know that you are in the "Hands of God" he he will take good care of you until we meet again. .......

High up in the courts of Heaven today
A little dog-angel waits,
With the other dogs he will not play,
But he sits alone at the Gates:
"For I know my master will come," says he
"And when he comes, he will call for me."

He sees the spirits that pass him by
As they hasten towards the throne,
And he watches them with a wistful eye
As he sits at the gate alone;
"But I know if I just wait patiently
"That someday my Master will come," says he.

And his Master far down on the earth below,
As he sits in his easy chair
Forgets sometimes, and he whistles low
For the dog that is not there;
And the little dog-angel cocks his ears
And dreams that his Master's call he hears.

And I know when at length his Master waits
Outside in the dark and cold
For the hand of Death to open the gates
That lead to the Courts of Gold,
The little dog-angel's eager bark
Will comfort his soul while he's still in the dark.

We love & miss you my "Sweet Bonzi" we will never forget you, you will always be in our thoughts & heavy on our "Hearts"

Sweet Bonzi i haven't been on here for ages but you are not forgotten. The busy life style of some keep them away from what they most like to do.....You are in my thoughts daily & you are Never going to leave my "Heart"..You are missed so much that it still hurts like it was yesterday and I just wish we would have never givin you that Rimadyl....So many dogs are going to the Rainbow Bridge because their owners don't listen to out warnings. You meet them at the gate my friend & make them feel at home.

Maggie has had another birthday she is now 5 yrs old so full of love and she still has your blanket. I guess it's time to wash it!!! I hate to because your smell will go away from her but I know it's time.

Paley is still Paley she loves to lay out were you use to lay so I no she remembers you were ther & than we have Sybil~Aine she is a handfull but we just love them all. None can ever takeyour place NEVER....

Dod & I talk of you all the time how much we miss you being around what a great dog you were. Th balloons are going over again some slow & low to the ground looking for their frien whi isn't here anymore. Some yell & ask some point & a few just wave & say the "Miss" you....
Sunlight streams through window pane
unto a spot on the floor....
then I remember,
it's where you used to lie,
but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet,
and muted echoes sound....
then I remember,
It's where your paws would joyously abound.
A voice is heard along the road,
and up beyond the hill,
then I remember it can't be yours....
your golden voice is still.
But I'll take that vacant spot of floor
and empty muted hall
and lay them with the absent voice
and unused dish along the wall.
I'll wrap these treasured memorials
in a blanket of my love
and keep them for my best friend
until we meet above......

In Our Thoughts "Daily" Miss you Bonzi
Love Mom, Dad, Paley~Sue, Maggie~Mae (your Buddy) & Sybil~Aine


Two Years Have Passed

Our "Sweet Sweet" Bonzi it has been 2 yrs now that you have been gone but seems like you were only here yesterday......we think about you everyday wishing that you were still with us. Our big yard is now empty without you to run in, the path that you left is now gone & the spot that you laid in everyday to get out of the sun has grown over. It is a sweet saddness and our heart's have a an empty feeling that can never be replaced. We still have neighbors ask about you wondering where you are? Strange that they just now notice you are gone......but you never made a sound when you were here always so quite. The cat you watched just when through the yard but Paley, Maggie & Sybil took her running so she still knows that a dog lives here. Dad but a bird feeder out by your dog run he thought that would be the best place for it because you loved the birds & never messed with them it was almost like they weren't even there to you. We finally have the shade tree out there that you needed but now you are gone so it useless to us & I hate to look at it. Hogan got out just the other day and came down here I think he was looking for you I just let him go......he is getting old too so one day he will meet you at the Rainbow Bridge. You will always be missed & loved in our hearts forever...God please keep him safe for us.

They say memories are golden.
Well, maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
No one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway,
And heartache make a lane.
I'd walk the path to heaven,
And bring you home again.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again

Memories will be forever they will always be there.................


New Years Eve

Bonzi is watching over us this New Years Eve. Yes another year has come & gone and our "Bonzi" isn't with us except in our hearts & thoughts. Memories will always be with us that can't be taken away from us. When New Years Eve would come and everyone would let off the loud noises it never bothered Bonzi he would just lay on the floor as if nothing was going on. Now he can see them all from above all the pretty colors..........
Here it is another year and we still have pet passing because they have been given Rimadyl or another fourm of NSAIDS. When will it stop? I haven't given up this fight & keep spreading the word hoping that others will listen to what I am saying. I have made many friends because of the Bonzi many very good friends we all fighting for our "Babies" that have passed. All of us want the same thing this year less deaths from NSAIDS others who are in higher places such as Congress to pass a law on this drug. There was a guy that stated we need to use risk vs benefit when it comes to these drugs.......well myself & for my girls Paley, Maggie & Sybil I will not take any risk when it comes to their care. I have learned a very hard lesson from the death of "Bonzi" it it something I never want to go through again. It's true Bonzi was getting older by the day & they say Chow's only live to the age of 14teen but I do believe in my heart he would still be here with us today it he hadn't been given Rimadyl by his Vet knowing that he was in the early stages of kidney failure. Or maybe God would have taken him home with him but he would have never suffered the horroable death that he did.....
I have helped others when it comes to this drug, others have told me to mind my our business they knew what they were doing. Several have contacted me later after they lost their pet wishing they had listened to me. I have tried to be their for them but after the fact what can you say? Many have joined in on the fight of NSAIDS other say it's just to much to handle. I have set up 2 Yahoo Groups, a Blod for Rimadyl Angels, A Flickr page and was working on a web site but have pushed it aside someday I will get it going. I will not stop until I feel that something has been done for our Rimadyl Victims everyone that speaks up "helps" more than you no. I never make New Years Resolution's because it's something I never keep but I promise to work harder in the fight against NSAIDS. I will charish the friends that I have made & will work on meeting others and most of all I will keep "Bonzi" in my heart forever never to let him go. He is watching over us this I know keeping us safe.

Now that I have finished this entry here is a prayer for all:

Thank you Lord for giving me
The brand new year ahead
Help me live the way I should
As each new day I tread.

Give me gentle wisdom
That I might help a friend
Give me strength and courage
So a shoulder I might lend.

The year ahead is empty
Help me fill it with good things
Each new day filled with joy
And the happiness it brings.

Please give the leaders of our world
A courage born of peace
That they might lead us gently
And all the fighting cease.

Please give to all upon this earth
A heart that's filled with love
A gentle happy way to live
With Your blessings from above.

And Lord thank you for all my people
that have come into my life...
Sweet kind hearted one's that I call my friends.

Everyone I wish you all a Happy New Year thanks for being there for me in 2007. You have blessed my life in more ways than you know.

Christmas Eve 2007

Here it is Christmas Eve & dear sweet Bonzi isn't here with us..but he is watching over us from above at the Rainbow Bridge. Each year at Christmas we would load up & go out to see the lights he would ride in the back of the truck even if it was cold it didn't matter to him he really loved the snow. This year we didn't go.............It's really hard to explain to people how we feel but all I can say is it's like losing a member of our family. We had him with us for 13 1/2 years each Holiday he shared with us. He got gifts & goodies just like a child he really loved the turkey & trimmings. We miss you "Bonzi" and know that you are watching over us this Christmas Eve from are always on our minds & in our hearts. We love you and the memories are still with us as if it were yesterday.
Mom,Dad,Jeremy & The PMS Girls Paley~Sue, Maggie~Mae & Sybil~Aine

Merry Christmas to all the Rainbow Bridge Doggies


Our Christmas with Out You

I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below with tiny lights like heaven's stars reflecting on the snow.

The sight is so spectacular please wipe away that tear
for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear but the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you of the joy their voices bring for it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I can't tell you of the splendor or the peace here in this place Can you just imagine Christmas with our Savior face to face?

I'll ask him to lift your spirit as I tell you of your love so then pray for one another as you lift your eyes above.

Please let your hearts be joyful and let your spirit sing
for I am spending Christmas in heaven and I'm walking with the King.

Bonzi Christmas isn't the same here with out you we miss you so but hold you deeply in our "Hearts"

Bonzi has been gone now since April 2006 over 1 year & 8 months which seems like yesterday almost. The Holiday season is here which was his favorite time of all. Believe it or not he would get gifts, play in the snow & even have his own turkey dinner! After all he was part of our family......Bonzi is missed more & more each day the pain of losing him is still there like it was yesterday. I will still hang his stocking up right along side of the Girls and fill it with toy's........(Of course the girls will get them) We will have you on our minds & in our Hearts. Love You


Fall is Here

Bonzi just loved the fall season it was his favorite.....We use to take him to the lake & he would run in the woods chasing the leaves. We would put him in the back of the truck & her would bark all the way there & back he just loved it. He knew that when we got in the truck he was going for a ride. This year we are lost with out him. The Hot Air Balloon's go over all the time & a few have landed in the yard some ask about him other who didn't know him wanted to no about him. The would go over & get low enough so they could call out at him. Of course he barked the whole time I really don't think he liked them to much. He would hear the sound of the hot fire going up in the balloon that is all it took he would let us no they were out there. We think about him everyday not a day goes by that he isn't on our minds. So this one is for you my buddy Bonzi........

Hot Air Balloon Ride

In the magic of the morning,
Looking around the large launch field.

Arrays of hot-air balloons inflate,
And their colors are gradually revealed.

Lifting off in the wicker gondola,
I start my heavenward ascension.

The idyllic landscape soon stretches out
To a stupendous dimension;

There is so much pristine scenery –
The rolling hills are dotted with pines.

As the earth seems to slowly rotate below,
I take in outdoor designs.

Floating serenely for a while,
Suspended in the wind’s highway,

I’m in panoramic harmony with nature;
And my mind is led astray.

We love & miss you Bonzi what a sweet joy you were the year's we had you let us with Great Memories..
