Arrival Story:
I am now a guardian angel; a Princess @ the Rainbow Bridge ... but once upon a time ... (My story, by mommie) How we were blessed to have Chloe'! Her owner, my moms hairdresser, had gotten Chloe' back from the recipient after giving her as a gift. She was looking to rehome her yet again, as her lifesyle wasnt ready for a dog, and my mother was "babysitting" her frequently. My husband and I were stopping at my mom's on our way to the OU-Tx game in 95, to spend the night & visit before meeting friends and traveling on the next day. Mother was babysitting Chloe' and when my hubby sat down she hopped on the couch and in his lap and reached up to give him the most gentle little kisses. She was very excited to meet us; such a precious little soul. A very calm furbaby, even though excited and still so young. We went to the game and my mother called in a week or two to ask if we might think about taking Chloe', as we had clearly bonded. I didnt think it was such a good idea, I had a 16 yr old poodle/maltese who was feeling the affects of her age and I didnt want anything to upset her golden yrs. Later that night, I tell my husband about the phone call, how my mom thought it was a good idea for us to have a family dog that we all had ownership in from its arrival. My husbands dog had died a few yrs back and we had our chidren, technically my step children, a few days a week and every other weekend. My baby (Casey)loved them for the last 8 yrs, but... she was mine and now very old and not active with the kids any longer. My husband liked the idea & even though I felt guilty about my older dog, casey, I was enamored of Chloe' from the moment we met, it was meant to be. I called my mother and she brought her up to us in the next few days! It was on the condition that she get along with casey. Chloe' was so calm and never once bothered casey. She loved everyone immediately. The whole family embraced her, she was meant to be our furbaby! Turns out we were her 4th and final home....WE HAD RESCUED HER........AND SHE RESCUED US RIGHT BACK! :)

Chloe' was the most gentle soul. She could make a non doglover, a fan of hers in 10 seconds or less. She was very calm, but would wiggle gleefully when company came....to see her of course. She had never played with toys, when she came to us at 15 months old. It only took about a week, for us to notice the toys would be moved a few feet from their original position, thus her never ending love affair with soft, fuzzy toys began! She loved to walk on the sidewalk or driveway, instead of on the lawn. espec. to the mailbox and back everyday. She had a beautiful full coat, mostly white. Going bye bye was a favorite thing to do. She loved to see Diane on her spa days twice monthly! When she was 9, in july '03 we found out about the cancer, a mast cell tumor, which we had removed. I felt a pearl sized bump in late September and it grew so aggressively and became hot, bruised & swollen several times that size, so that she had emerg. surg (on a Sunday) to remove it, b4 her actual planned surgery date. We were then sent to a surgeon so he could take wide margins and again, check to see what 'stage' it was. We then took her to the only oncologist in our state. Chloe' underwent chemo and was herself, throughout the process, except a day or two a month, she seemed very tired. I trimmed the hair on her body short around Dec. '03, but left her thinning face, ears and topknot long. Her surgery site was shorter from being shaved. Throughout her treatment, all her mannerisms and personality remained in tact. She had other surgeries the last of which, the surgeon said it was the last time, there were no margins left to take. We prayed and hoped for the best; making sure she had quality of life. We let her go July '04. She was the light of our lives; easy, happy little 11 lbs of fluff. Chloe' was a good little motorhome traveler, a great cosmopolitan hotel dog! How she loved eating at the outdoor cafe of the Ajax Tavern in Aspen! (just a couple of bites mommie, of the creamy garlic polenta) Children made her very happy; espec. our neices and the little girl next door. Always ready to please, never far from where we were. ALWAYS in our hearts. Truly our Furever baby.

Her Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of her as gone away-
her journey's just begun
life holds so many facets-
this earth is only one
Just think of her as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away
And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost
and she was loved so much!


I was blessed to get to have you in my life...

there always be a place
for you for all my life
i'll keep a part of you with me
and everywhere i am there you'll be
and everywhere i am there you'll be
there you'll be...


The Rescue @ the Rainbow Bridge~

January 18th 2009 11:09 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Unlike most days at Rainbow Bridge, this day dawned cold and gray, damp as a swamp and as dismal as could be imagined. All the recent arrivals were confused and concerned. They had no idea what to think for they had never experienced a day like this before. But the animals who had spent some time waiting for their beloved people knew exactly what was happening and began to gather at the pathway leading to the Bridge to watch. They knew this was something special.

It wasn't too long before an elderly animal came into view, head hung heavy and low with tail dragging along the ground. The other animals on the pathway...the ones who had been at Rainbow Bridge for a while...knew the story of this sad creature immediately. They had seen it happen far too many times.

Although it was obvious the animal's heart was leaden and he was totally overcome with emotional pain and hurt, there was no sign of injury or any illness. Unlike the pets waiting at the Bridge, this dog had not been restored to his prime. He was full of neither health nor vigor. He approached slowly and painfully, watching all the pets who were by now watching him. He knew he was out of place here. This was no resting place for him. He felt instinctively that the sooner he could cross over, the happier he would be. But alas, as he came closer to the Bridge, his way was barred by the appearance of an Angel who spoke softly to the old dog and apologized sorrowfully, telling him that he would not be able to pass. Only those animals who were with their special people could pass over the Rainbow Bridge. And he had no special beloved people...not here at the Bridge nor on Earth below.

With no place else to turn, the poor elderly dog looked toward the fields before the Bridge. There, in a separate area nearby, he spotted a group of other sad-eyed animals like himself...elderly and infirm. Unlike the pets waiting for their special people, these animals weren't playing, but simply lying on the green grass, forlornly and miserably staring out at the pathway leading to the Bridge. The recent arrival knew he had no choice but to join them. And so, he took his place among them, just watching the pathway and waiting.

One of the newest arrivals at the Bridge, who was waiting for his special people, could not understand what he had just witnessed and asked one of the pets who had been there for some time to explain it to him.

"That poor dog was a rescue, sent to the pound when his owner grew tired of him. They way you see him now, with graying fur and sad, cloudy eyes, was exactly the way he was when he was put into the kennels. He never, ever made it out as he left his miserable and unloved existence on Earth for good. Because he had no family or special person to give his love, he has nobody to escort him across the Bridge.
The first animal thought about this for a minute and then asked, "So what will happen now?"

As he was about to receive his answer, the clouds suddenly parted and the all-invasive gloom lifted. Coming toward the Bridge could be seen a single figure...a person who, on Earth, had seemed quite ordinary...a person who, just like the elderly dog, had just left Earth forever. This figure turned toward a group of the sad animals and extended outstretched palms. The sweetest sounds they had ever heard echoed gently above them and all were bathed in a pure and golden light. Instantly, each was young and healthy again, just as they had been in the prime of life.

From within the gathering of pets waiting for their special people, a group of animals emerged and moved toward the pathway. As they came close to the passing figure, each bowed low and each received a tender pat on the head or a scratch behind the ears. Their eyes grew even brighter as the figure softly murmured each name. Then, the newly-restored pets fell into line behind the figure and quietly followed this person to the Bridge, where they all crossed together.

The recent arrival who had been watching, was amazed. "What happened?"

"That was a rescuer," came the answer. "That person spent a lifetime trying to help pets of all kinds. The ones you saw bowing in respect were those who found new homes because of such unselfish work. They will cross when their families arrive. Those you saw restored were ones who never found homes. When a rescuer arrives, they are permitted to perform one, final act of rescue. They are allowed to escort those poor pets across the Rainbow Bridge. You see, all animals are special to them, just as they are special to all animals."

"I think I like rescuers," said the recent arrival.

"So does God," was the reply.
