It has been 7 years since we said our final goodbyes and time doesn't lessen the loss we still feel. You were our our big boy with the gentle heart. Bruno, you will always be near and dear to us.

We love you Bru


Happy Birthday to me!

That's right, a party at the bridge tonight! Sandi and Tara baked a cake and Chester and Yuki are bringing the refreshments ;)

Sometimes it seems like I got here ages ago and other days it seems like just yesterday. Either way, mom says I'm still the coolest Rottie she knew. I miss my family and I watch over my Hubro in the Navy. He was always really good to me. As always, American Idol starts around this time and it reminds mom of my lovely singing voice. Those were the days.

Angels unite! Party on my cloud



It's been 5 years since we said goodbye

5 years ago we had to say our final goodbye and it was a heartbreaking time for everyone. You were a very special boy and you touched the hearts of so many in your lifetime.

Bruno, you are missed today on your crossover day but you are also missed every day. Your motto - Big dog, bigger heart is so true. You loved and were loved.

Missing you today and always


Thank you for my birthday wishes

This time of year is always bittersweet. American Idol will be starting and I would be celebrating my birthday. Mom remembers all the wonderful memories we shared and it is wonderful to see I am still remembered and thought of still today. The memories and cherished moments are what keep me alive.

In the Candle's Glow
Laura Hickman

Warm light coming from far below,
Twinkling, sparkling is the candle's glow.
All is well up on the ridge,
The place we know as Rainbow Bridge.

Furbabies sleeping in heaven's light,
Tended by candles in the night.
Peaceful dreams be theirs to keep,
As they slumber in this night so deep.

Hearts on earth that miss them so,
Take comfort in the candle's glow.
Watching for them in skies above,
Bound eternally by a cord of love.


Thank you for remembering my Bridge Day

Thank you for the paw mails and gifts on my Rainbow Bridge Day.

I remember that day back in 1998 when I was adopted and how wonderful it was to know that I would be loved for the rest of my life. That wonderful and warm feeling remains here at the bridge. I still know that I was loved and am still loved even though 4 years have passed since I spent time with my family physically.

Sending love from above,
A very grateful Bru


Thank you

Thank you for all the paw mails and birthday pressies. I know my family misses me, but knowing I am out of the pain I was in is a comfort to them. In a few weeks it will be my 4th anniversary at the bridge. I can hardly believe it myself. I miss my family as much as they miss me but someday I will see them again.

It is good to be loved :)

Big Rottie Slobbers,

I tried to wrap my head around that this morning and just can't believe it. Has it really been 3 years Bru? We miss you so much and perhaps that is why it doesn't seem like it has been that long, but know we love and still miss you dearly. On your crossover day, please know that we will celebrate your time with us today and fondly recollect old memories. You will always be alive in our heart.

Your family


Happy Birthday Bru

Today you would have celebrated your 13th birthday, Bru. One of the things we so loved about you was your puppylike demeanor that stayed with you your whole life. On your birthday you would always be so excited to get your toys and special dinner, your nub would wiggle 50MPH. :) I hope you have a wonderful birthday at the Rainbow Bridge with your sisters and I hope you know we are always thinking of you. Happy Birthday my big boy.



Missing You Lyrics by Jem

As your birthday approaches, it reminds me of the song Missing You by Jem. It is no longer on playlist so I added the youtube version. We still think of you all the time Bru, especially around the holidays and milestone days like your b-day. Personally, I will always miss you during American Idol time because that was "our show" and another season is just around the corner. Love ya big guy


Missing You, by Jem

I wish this could be
a happy song
But my happiness disappeared
the moment you were gone
Don't think I ever believed that
this day would come
Now all I'm feeling
is lost and numb

And ohhh I know I promised
Mmmm that I would try

But I, yes I, miss you
and it's killing inside

I'll always be thankful
for the time we had
We were blessed
I should celebrate
but I feel too sad
All the wonderful memories
just make me fall apart
And it feels like somebody's
stabbed me in my heart

And ohhh I know I promised
Mmmm that I wouldn't cry

But I, yes I, miss you
and it's killing inside
Ooh well I, yes I, miss you
want you by my side

Walking, holding hands
Talking, making plans
Touching my heart my soul

I wish this could be
a happy song
But my happiness disappeared
the moment you were gone
Tell me it's not happening
Say it's not as it seems
Tell me that I'm gonna wake up
It's just a bad dream
Please tell me that it's fiction
Tell me it's just a lie
Whatever you choose to tell me
Please say he didn't die

And I, yes I, miss you
and it's killing inside
Ooh well I, yes I, miss you
want you by my side
Ooh well I, miss you
want you by my side
Back here by my side
Here by my side


My Beloved Elma has joined me at the Bridge

I have always loved my dearest Elma with all my heart but I am so saddened for her family as they grieve for their loss. Elma was such a loving girl who was blessed to have been taken in by the best family in the world. She was strong, stoic, determined, and loving. She has not only left pawprints on the hearts of her family but also with all those who were blessed enough to have known her. She will be greatly missed by her family but also greatly welcomed at the Rainbow Bridge. A beautiful Angel with the most beautiful loving heart to match.

I found this on the Internet For You, My Dearest Elma. It seems pretty fitting for us both.

The Last Battle

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
