It's been a year since I went to the bridge...

Today marks exactly one year since I went to the bridge. Mom can hardly believe it's been a year and neither can I! There is no sense of time here at the rainbow bridge. We are eternally young, pain-free, and having a wonderful time! It's perfect. We do miss our humans, but we know that one day we will be reunited with them.

I try and visit mom in her dreams when I can, I do hope that gives her a sense of comfort. I think it probably does! I was a lucky dog to live a long, wonderful life with my family. I wish all pups in the world could know that feeling.

The Day You Came Into My Life

The day you came into my life,
it was late winter of ‘98.
You were meant to be with me
I know for sure it was fate.

I wanted a pup and to save a life
So off to the shelter I went.
There were many to choose from that day
But I believe that you were Heaven sent.

There were big dogs, small dogs,
And many in between.
All waiting to find a furever home.
All making sure that they were seen.

Sad eyes that looked up at me,
Tails that moved from side to side.
Hoping this would be the day
That they would go for a car ride.

When I spotted you behind the fence,
You had matted and tangled fur.
No question that you were the one
Of this I was 100% sure.

I could not take you home that day
Three days was how long I had to wait.
When I returned to adopt you -
I thought I was too late.

Another man was there as well
He wanted you for his mother’s pet.
This couldn’t be happening
I suddenly felt very sad and upset.

Just when I thought I couldn’t have you
The man told me I could be the one
If I promised to give you a good home
And of course love you a ton.

To this I wholeheartedly agreed
It was surely meant to be!
You left the shelter that winter morning
Becoming a part of our family.

Sugar, all of those years
You gave us so much love
Fate stepped in to bring you to us
You were sent from Heaven above.

You left us not so long ago
Your body was tired and frail
I long to kiss your fluffy face
And smile at your wagging tail.

Adopting a pet is wonderful
It’s the best thing you can do
You’ll be saving a life, and
Finding the right dog just for you.

Please love and help a dog
To find a better way....
Your own life will be much richer
And you’ll look forward to each new day. ♥



*Dedicated to our wonderful dog, Sugar. We lost you on April 29th, 2012 at age 15. Thank you for enriching our lives for 14 wonderful years!

It's been exactly a month since I went to the bridge. As much as I miss my family - I am happy here. I am surrounded by so many friends, as well as my brother, Peanut. We visited mom in a dream last night. We wanted her to know that we are happy and safe, and that we love and miss her very much! We hope we didn't make her too sad - we only wanted to let her know that all is well with us. We gave her lots of kisses! ♥ I hope to visit her again soon in her dreams.

 

Beyond The Rainbow

Beyond The Rainbow


As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.

I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.

For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.

Fly Angel Fly

What a joy it was to have you
to hold you laugh and play
You gave me such a smile
upon my face each day

Your soft and furry head
I nuzzled kissed and pet
For everything you gave to me
enough I could not get

Remember now as you fly
to the heavens gates above
I send you off with packages
Tied with all my love

Each day you’re gone
I’ll miss you so much
I cannot wait to see you again
your furry head I’ll touch

Remember my sweet fur angel
your love was not for naught
I’ll hold it in my heart each day
Oh how much to me you taught

You’ll live now with no pain
and every day you’ll play
In my heart you’ll always stay
till it’s my time to fly away

In heaven we will be together
playing again each day
We’ll live in peace and happiness
this is my promise sweet fur angel
Go now, fly away, let your
heart be full.

 

I'm Still Here

I’m Still Here


Friend, 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, friend, I'm everyplace!

When I am gone, release me; let me go

When I am gone, release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You mustn’t tie yourself to me in tears,
Be happy that we had so many years

I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it’s time I travelled on alone

So grieve a while for me if grieve you must,
Then let your grieve be comforted by trust,
It’s only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within our hearts.

I won’t be far away, for life goes on
So if you ever need me, call and I will come.
Though you can’t see or touch me I will be near
And if you listen with your heart, you will hear
All my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone
I’ll greet you with a smile and “welcome you home”

♥ ♥ ♥

ADOPT 09 CONTEST!

I want to share the story of how I came to my wonderful home. Once upon a time, almost 11 years ago to be exact... I was found running the streets. My fur was a long and tangled mess. No one knows how long I had been on the streets, or how I was surviving. Animal control picked me up and took me to the pound. There I sat, nervous and afraid. The cold concrete didn't feel very good, and the constant barking from the countless other dogs didn't help me feel any better. Thankfully, I wasn't there very long when a few people started noticing me through the chain link fence! In fact, they were told by the pound employees that they would have to come back in three days if they wanted to adopt me. Law says I had to remain there for 72 hours in case any owners showed up to claim me. They never did. Mom and my youngest human sister were two of those people that showed with lots of interest. I'll never forget mom, she saw me and stopped at the fence, bent down on her knees and smiled. Even though I looked pretty messy and my fur was beyond snarled, she saw my big, brown eyes and knew there was something special about me! She called me over to the fence, so I came. How could I resist attention like that? I put my paw through the fence and nudged for her to pet me, which she did! Little sister pet me too. Wow, did it ever feel great to have people focusing on me! Maybe they could even get me out of this place. Mom and sister continued to play with me and spoke soothing words to me. Boy, it was almost enough to make me forget how bad life on the streets had been. I kept think - maybe these nice people would get me out ASAP! I was so anxious, I wagged my tail nonstop, and I kept licking mom and sister continuously. But then, they left! Why did they leave? For the next two days, I was sad. I couldn't get out of that fenced in area! Many people stopped and admired me, but they didn't get me out. Finally, that nice lady and her kid came back (mom and sister) and they were told by the pound employees that someone else wanted me to! It was a gentleman, who wanted to give me to his elderly mother. Oh boy, what a situation to be in - scruffy looking me was wanted by two different families! I wondered what would happen. They were going to flip a coin for me, but it didn't happen because the gentleman was nice enough to let mom take me home! He said if mom promised to give me a wonderful home, he would let her have me and forfit the coin toss. Mom was so happy, and so was I! The pound employee then came to unlock the caged area where I had been living uncomfortably for the past 72 hours. Was I ever happy! Mom had a leash in her hand and a huge smile on her face. I was getting out of there! Mom signed some papers first, then took the leash and put it on me. I kissed her and sister over and over, and I don't think my tail stopped wagging until we got to the car. While in the car, I immediately jumped on mom's lap and stayed there until we got to my new furever home. Mom didn't have the heart to move me! When I got to my new home, I sniffed and sniffed and investigated all over. I went outside in my new big backyard (which was fenced) and ran around, sniffed and got to know my new surroundings. It was wonderful! I later met another human sister and my dad. What a great family! They all gave me so much love and attention. Life was never better! I soon forgot all about the hardship of running on the streets. I was taken to the groomer that week and mom couldn't believe how much smaller I was without all of the fur. BOL!
Fast forward 11 years until the present time. I now share my family with Peanut, who has been in my life for 10 years now, and Bambi - who has been in my life for 4 years. We three dogs have a wonderful, wonderful life. We are treated the way ALL dogs should be treated. If I had a wish, it would be for every single dog on earth to have what I have...... a loving home with a loving family. That is what we all deserve! I hope I am fortunate enough to live many more years with my family. I know if I died tomorrow, I'd be happy. I'd be thankful for the happy years I have had with them! If you want a faithful and loving pet, please consider adopting from a shelter/pound/rescue foundation today! You'll never regret it.

XO
Sugar~

 

'Twas the night before Christmas.... at the animal shelter

December 8th 2008 2:18 pm
[ View A Comments ]

'Tis the night before Christmas and all through the town,
Every shelter is full. We are lost but not found.
Our numbers are hung on our kennels so bare,
We hope every minute that someone will care.

They'll come to adopt us and give us the call,
"Come here, Max and Sparkie ~ come fetch your new ball!"
But now we just sit here and think of the days.....
We were treated so fondly ~ we had baby ways.

Once we were little, then we grew and we grew ~
Now we're no longer young, and we're no longer new.
So out the back door we were thrown like trash,
They reacted so quickly ~ why were they so rash?

We "jump on the children," "don't come when they call",
We "bark when they leave us," "climb over the wall."
We should have been neutered, we should have been spayed,
Wow we suffer the consequence of the error they made.

If only they'd trained us, if only we knew...
We'd have done what they asked us and worshipped them, too.
We were left in back yard, or worse ~ left to roam...
Now we're tired and lonely and out of a home.

They dropped us off here and they kissed us good-by....
"Maybe someone else will give you a try."
So now here we are, all confused and alone....
In a shelter with others who long for a home.

The kind workers come through with a meal and a pat,
With so many to care for, they can't stay to chat.
They move to the next kennel, giving each of us cheer....
We know that they wonder how long we'll be here.

We lay down to sleep and sweet dreams fill our heads....
Of a home filled with love and our own cozy beds.
Then we wake to see sad eyes, brimming with tears ~
Our friends filled with emptiness, worry and fear.

If you can't adopt us and there's no room at your inn ~
Could you help with the bills and fill our food bin?
We count on your kindness each day of the year ~
Can you give more than hope to everyone here?
