I am the happiest girldog in all of Rainbow bridge. I married the luv of my life this morning and I am so thrilled to be Mrs. Garrett Taylor.
We had the most beautiful of weddings and then a wonderfur receptions with all of your furmily and some furiends who were able to attend. The banquet hall was so beautiful and I will never furget how handsome my Garrett looked as I walked down the isle toward him to become his bride.
Now he has whisked me away to a Chalet in the Swiss Alps. We will have to tell you all about it when we return from our honeymoon.
Gotta go back to my Gargar now! Toodles! ~ Sweet Sadie

Lets have a magical halloween
One made special for you and I
The brightest silvery moon aglow
Bright stars twinkling in the sky
One treat after another to share
Sharing our Halloween in style
Surrounded with spicy candles
Jack OLantern wearing a smile
We'll await till the darkness falls
A moonlit floor to dance upon
On the night seductively inviting
Beneath every star that shone
Both dressed for this occasion
Embraced as stars shine down
You in your black velvet tuxedo
Me in my soft red velvet gown
In magical spells of Halloween
All staged romantically for two
Spending the night in your arms
Both tasting love potions brew
This beautiful poem was sent to me from my darling Gargar.
*Blows kisses on the wind for him*

Rainbow Bridge Rescuer
Unlike most days at Rainbow Bridge, this day dawned cold and gray, damp as a swamp and as dismal as could be imagined. All of the recent arrivals had no idea what to think, as they had never experienced a day like this before. But, the animals who had been waiting for their beloved people knew exactly what was going on and started to gather at the pathway leading to The Rainbow Bridge to watch.
It wasn't long before an elderly animal came into view, head hung low and tail dragging. The other animals, the ones who had been there for while, knew what his story was right away, for they had seen this happen far too often. He approached slowly, obviously in great emotional pain, but with no sign of injury or illness. Unlike all of the other animals waiting at The Bridge, this animal had not been restored to youth and made healthy and vigorous again. As he walked toward The Rainbow Bridge, he watched all of the other animals watching him. He knew he was out of place here and the sooner he could cross over, the happier he would be. But alas, as he approached The Bridge, his way was barred by the appearance of an Angel who apologized, but told him that he would not be able to pass. Only those animals who were with their people could pass over The Rainbow Bridge.
With no place else to turn to, the elderly animal turned towards the fields before The Bridge and saw a group of other animals like himself, also elderly and infirm. They weren't playing, but rather simply lying on the green grass, forlornly staring out at the pathway leading to The Bridge. And so, he took his place among them, watching the pathway and waiting.
One of the newest arrivals at The Bridge didn't understand what he had just witnessed and asked one of the animals that had been there for a while to explain it to him.
"You see, that poor animal was a rescue. He was turned in to rescue just as you see him now, an older animal with his fur graying and his eyes clouding. He never made it out of rescue and passed on with only the love of his rescuer to comfort him as he left his earthly existence. Because he had no family to give his love to, he has no one 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 gloom lifted. Approaching The Bridge could be seen a single person and among the older animals, a whole group was suddenly bathed in a golden light and they were all young and healthy again, just as they were in the prime of life. "Watch, and see", said the second animal. A second group of animals from those waiting came to the pathway and bowed low as the person neared. At each bowed head, the person offered a pat on the head or a scratch behind the ears. The newly restored animals fell into line and followed him towards The Bridge. They all crossed The Bridge together.
"What happened?" asked the first animal. "That was a rescuer." replied the second. "The animals you saw bowing in respect were those who found new homes because of his work. They will cross when their new families arrive. Those you saw restored were those who never found homes. When a rescuer arrives, they are allowed to perform one, final act of rescue. They are allowed to escort those poor animals that they couldn't place on earth, across The Rainbow Bridge.
"I think I like rescuer's", said the first animal.
"So does GOD", was the reply.
