   Leave a bone for Chloe ~Over the Rainbow Bridge

Rainbow Bridge
April 1st 1993

Arrival Story:
Chloe was a "Flood" puppy that we found during the massive flooding in July 1993 in St. Louis from the Mississippi River. I found her at a park---she was hungry and searching garbage cans for food. She was only about 4 months old and even though she was hungry and lost, she was still unbelievable sweet. I put her in my car, took her home, and gave her food. We placed an add , but noone responded, so we kept her. We thought at first she was a black lab, but when we took her to the vet for her check-up----we were informed she was a Great Dane Puppy. .......

We were lucky to have Chloe with us for 12 1/2 years. She passed away in our arms in July 2005. She was the joy of our lives and was always a sweet, loving, gentle giant. She gave us so much love and we still miss her deeply......

I've been so lucky to have shared my life with great pet friends. You Chlo are still my first ever only my dog and I will always love you for being there with me. I didn't really know what it took to take care of you, but I learned and you were tolerant and never doubted me. I remember so much still, even after you are gone 11 years, the times we spent together in the back yard, on walks around the old neighborhood, moving to a new neighborhood. I remember you "ate" a bed, window sills, dug a 3 foot hole in the back yard and took my dinner right off the grill. I laugh about them now. I mostly remember you were big and soft and so loving to me, spending Winter afternoons on the couch with me. When we moved it must have been traumatic for you, I never realized, and those new 7 deadly steps out the back door are still there. I still hate them. I still miss you, I still love you with all my heart and I will always. You know ... I really do still think of you everyday. I know there are days that it's just a passing memory but it is everyday. I hope to see you again. I really do. Just once more to feel that gentle muzzle on my shoulder. Love Dad.


The 10 year without Chloe

Chloe, I don't know how I've survived this long without you. I remember the emptyness and sadness I felt when you were first gone, but more I remember the happy-happy times we had when you were young. Chasing squirrels as they ran along the telephone lines strung between our house. Walking you and the little boy with giant glasses that would run out of the house to grab you around the neck and hug you. He must be a grown man now. All the rushed trips home from work to let you out at lunch. I never wanted you to be in the house more than 4 hours with a break. Then we finally just got you your own door and you loved it. I still went home though, I just wanted to see you. Now is these last few months we have lost Ivy and Chopper too and we are alone and all the sad feelings are back. I know that your memories will somehow pull me through but having lost Chop just a few short days, yes 4 days ago. All the sadness is back. But I must say that I remember you fondly and hope to see you all soon. Love Dad.


The 9th year without you

I still remember the days of you being here like yesterday. Never any trouble really, well behaved from the start, gentle, loving, always a happy girl... I see your pictures around the house and remember you and playing ball in the back yard till my shoulder would hurt, watching you "eyeball" the squirrels and bounce up and down in the front window as the kids went off to school each day. I remember those first days when I was on my own, all alone after you were gone and how awful it was. Then Chopper came and he was so much trouble. I compared him to you all the time and then I learned not to. Now my buddy is ailing and I must take care of him. Ivy is 17 yrs old and they both need me the way you needed me. I promise you I will do a better job for them because of the things I learned from you. Rest in peach my precious girl. There will never be another you.

Love Daddy.
