Today is my birthday
Celebrate my life with you
And remember the good times
Not the bad and
Do not be sad;
Look up towards the sun
And catch every ray of light
Upon your cheek.
For I am there with you.

Today is my birthday
Be happy for me
I lived a long life,
I had the pleasure of love
And the joy of my family.
Do not be sad
Look up towards the stars
And catch each twinkle
In your heart.
For I am there with you

Today is my birthday
Learn to live again without me,
Take my strength with you
For you are not alone.
Do not be sad
Feel the rain on your face
Feel all life's treasures and
Know that you are alive!
At each step of the way
I will help you
For I am with you always
Until we meet again.

Today is my birthday...

When I was a puppy My brother Taz and I (Captain) where bought from a pet shop. Our owners took us home but they didn’t play with us much we was allowed out of our cages about 5 hours a day. We were kept in crates in a basement 12-15 hours a day because our owners worked all the time. We could hear them come home at night and was all excited thinking they would come and let us out soon but it would be a few more hours before we would see them. The basement door would open and then our cage doors we were free to go outside and play, potty, & eat. But for only a couple hours then it was back to the cage in the basement. We could hear them walking around above us hoping the door would open again and we would be able to come upstairs with them but soon it would be quite and dark and sleep would overcome us. Every morning we got out of our cages for 30 mins to eat, and go outside to potty then our owners had to go to work so back in the cage we went. This went on for the first 6 months of out lives. Then one day a lady came to see us she talked to us in a very clam and sweet voice and told us she was going to take us away. Apparently she knew about us and had talked to our owners and they agreed to let her have us. Although she couldn’t keep me and my brother together she did find him a good forever home just across town and I got to go see him occasionally. Now let me tell you about my rescue……when Mom and dad came to get me from the dark basement I was kinda scared because that’s all I knew except getting to go out for short periods of time. They put a collar on me and then a leash, I didn’t like that one bit and I was walked out to their truck. They tried to get me to jump up into the truck but I didn’t know how to jump so dad had to pick me up and put me in. It was only a short drive to my new forever home but it was very scary. When we got there all I was hoping for was a bigger cage since I was growing and my other one was getting a bit cramped. Mom got out of the truck first I saw her walking to the back. She opened the door and I could think of was RUN. I jumped out the back and took off . It took mom and dad an hour to catch me and when they did I figured ok here we go back to the cage. I was wrong though they took me in the house and showed me where I would be sleeping, on a bed right next to theirs, then they showed me my food and water, wow all the water I wanted and then, your not going to believe this, a huge yard. They said it was all mine I even had toys, LOTS of toys. At first I was a little shy but mom got me over that. I loved both mom and dad but mom was my favorite I went everywhere she went and eventually I ended up right next to her on the bed. I took care of mom thru the years would comfort her when she cried, snuggled with her when it was cold, and made sure she was always safe when we went for walks in the woods. As I got older she did the same for me she covered me when I was cold. Comforted me when I was feeling bad, and always made sure I was safe. When I was 11 years old I was diagnosed with heart worms. I also had bad hips and was losing my sight.
Mom decided that she would not treat me but to keep me comfortable with meds. The vet told her the treatment could hurt and make my bone even worse then they already were. For the next 3 years mom and I were closer then ever just like when I was young and watched over her she was now watching over me.
At 14 I went to rainbow bridge and I have no more pain. I watch over my family everyday and play with all my Angel friends here at the bridge. Thank you Mom & Dad for taking me away from the dark, cold basement and letting me see the light!!!!!


Dogs Ten Commandments

1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years - any separation from you will be very painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me - it is crucial for my well being.

4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment...You have your work, your friends, your entertainment...

5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand your voice when you're speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I'll NEVER forget it.

7. Before you hit me, remember that I have teeth that could easily crush the bones in your hands but I choose NOT to bite YOU.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I've been out in the sun too long or my heart may be getting old and weak.

9. Take care of me when I get old. You too will grow old.

10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, "I can't bear to watch it" or "Let it happen in my absence." Everything is easier for ME if you are there. Remember that I love you.

I sit and try to write the words, I want your heart to hear.
Hoping to find some comfort, in the fact that your not here.
I look out into the open field, that you once occupied,
Knowing now that field is empty, because my love, you've died.
I do believe with all my heart, that your soul has gone to be,
With all the other angel dogs, that you were meant to see.
We will have to stay behind, until God calls us too,
So do not be afraid, that he's only called for you.
The water is still, in the pond that you played,
And your bed is so empty, where your pretty head laid.
Our bed is to empty, where you once laid between,
the two people who LOVED you and now only dream,
That one day our eyes will shut one last time,
and you will come greet us, angel of mine.
Until then, I'll keep trying to see through my tears,
with memories you left us, to reflect through the years.
We'll never forget one minute we spent,
of loving and laughing, of places we went.
And I dread the day that your scent disappears,
for it's "proof" to me, Captain, that you were just here!
But one day will come, when we'll start to see through,
the pain of the moment, and remember just "you".
Now you go and play, and look down when you can,
remembering we love you, and this isn't the end.

Tandy was daddy’s girl where ever he was she was close by. she LOVED to swim. we use to go to a pond that had a diving board my hubby would take off running and she would follow right on his heels almost jumping on top of him off the board. She was so very loyal and was standing at the door every single day when we came home from work. Tandy also love to go canoeing down the river with us which made me very nervous cause she would not sit down she was all over the boat and when she wasn't riding she was swimming along side the canoe. Tandy never met another 4 legged she didn't like she was friends with everyone. When she was 7 we got her Brother captain, which I believe made her act like a puppy again. they would play for hours and when she was wore out he would make her play some more. Now Captain was mommies boy if I left the room for more then 10 seconds he would come looking for me. If I was sitting he had to be right under my feet.
He had his spot in bed to RIGHT under my legs, under the covers he would not move the whole nite. Captain did not like water I really don’t think he knew how to swim. we would go the lake and he would come in part way and stand there and bark at us as if to say "hey come get me" I would carry him out into the water and I swear he had a death grip on me then one day I think he had enough and came a little farther and a little farther till the bottom went away and it was sink or swim. He swam and from that day on if we were in the water so was he. At the age of 14 Tandy went blind and could not hear, her hips were giving out on her and she had a few health issues. She would fall down just walking thru the yard and while trying to find her daddy out back she would run into things. it just broke our hearts and the discussion was made to send her to where she was healthy and could see, hear, run & swim again so we let her go the bridge. She left us with me holding her tight in my arms.
Captain went through the grieving process I know he missed her very much. At 7 years old we got Fancy and again he was a pup again. At 12 years old he was diagnosed with heart worms and being an elder the treatment would have been very hard on him so we opted not to treat he eventually lost his hearing and couldn’t walk for more then a couple hundred feet without being out of breath. one day he was trying to get into the back door and fell. I cried because I could see how he was struggling and he looked at me as if to say mom please help me. I called my hubby and told him to meet me and we said our last goodbyes and I held him in my arms for 30 mins after his last breath.
I miss both of my babies very much and I know that they both watching over us at the Rainbow bridge

I remember we would go to the lake and go swimming. My sister Tandy would go right in and swim forever but I didn't want to go in. I was scared of the water and you knew that. you would never push me to go either you would help me get my feet wet but that’s all I wanted. One day you was out there in the middle of the water with dad and tandy calling me to come in. I was so scared but I came a little bit at a time till finally the bottom went away. you was right there holding me making sure I was ok. you calmed me and talked to me telling me it was ok and you wouldn't let anything happen to me. I finally got my legs moving and off I went, I was swimming !!! I only went a short distance at first coming back to you and making you hold me again. Each time I would get farther and farther away from you but you never let me get to far.
All of the sudden I liked swimming !!!! After that whenever we would go to the lake I was the first one in Barking at all of you to hurry up and get in.
Thank you mom for teaching me to swim !!!!!!!

Love always

Hey mom remember when we loved to sit out on the back porch and listen to the rain hitting the ground and the trees and the roofs. We would watch the rabbits come out and play in the rain and sometimes you and I would even get out and play in it. I Remember when we was sitting out back one time and it thundered so loud that you screamed it scared you to death and since you was scared so was I. well after that I was scared every time I heard a noise like that, thunder, fireworks, a shot gun... you blamed yourself, said if you hadn't screamed I wouldn't have been scared. Well I just wanted to tell you Mom here at the bridge those things don't scare me anymore. I just wanted you to know that mom cause I know you would be worried about where I would go hide. (which was under your feet)

Watching over you

Hey mom
Remember when we moved into the new house in the country and I went for a walk out back. You was wondering where I was so you came looking for me.
I was so proud to show you what I had found. I was rolling in it and making myself smell all good for you. You wasn't to happy with me and you made me go to the house. I knew I was in trouble when I couldn’t go in side and you came back out with the shampoo and towels. Well to tell you the truth mom I loved that bath cause you scrubbed to get my perfume off of me and it felt really good. Then you took the towels and dried me off and that felt really good to. You brought me in the house and covered me in my favorite blanket and I laid at your feet for hours. I love our memories Mom.

Your boy

I'm Still Here
Mom, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, Mom, I'm everyplace!

Miss me but let me go

When I come to the end of the road and the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom filled room why cry for a soul set free!
Miss me a little, but not for long, and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me but let me go!
For this is a journey we all must take, and each must go alone.
Its all a part of the master's plan a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart go to the friends we know,
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss me but let me go....

Buh he,
I still love you as much as the first day we brought you home.
You will always be in my heart. I miss you so much.
Share your tennis balls with others and be nice to your sister.
