   Leave a bone for Sophie (In Loving Memory)

Rainbow Bridge
Quick Bio:

October 30th 1991


Best Tricks:
Sit, Stay, Catching a frisbee

Arrival Story:
" A PRAYER FOR SOPHIE" Never will there be another so golden and pure. She loved me with every heart beat. This I am sure. She watched over me each and every day. God please take care of her. This I pray. Frisbee was her favorite game; running jumping high. Now as I remember this all I can do is cry. I knew the time would come when you would take her soul away. This day came one dreary day in May. The veterinarian said I must decide. She would not be getting well. Was this my decision to make? God this was hell. The drug would not take her away. She cried. She did not want to leave. God help her through this. Oh God please. I held her paw in my hand as she took her last breath that day. Her life ended on the tenth day of May. God now you have her. Please take care of her for me. Make her whole and well again. This I plea. Please tell her I will forever love her and we will never be apart. We will always be connected by the invisible string connecting our hearts.

Forever in my heart!!!

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 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 a 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 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 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 awhile 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?"

"That was a rescuer. The animals you saw bowing in respect were those who found new homes because of her 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 rescuers", said the first animal.

"So does GOD", was the reply.


I miss you

Today I am 17 years young at the Rainbow Bridge. As I look down on my humom, I see she is sad. I get sad sometimes too. We miss each other soooo much. I am with her each day. I hope she knows and feels this.
I see Lakota has taken my place in the pack very well. I was always the leader. I kept everyone in line. I am glad my humom has Lakota to do this.
I am always hearing my humom say, "there will never be another Sophie".
You see, we were like soul mates. I watched over my humom each and every day. I was always by her side. She longs for this as do I.
I miss you humom, but am whole and well again. Know that I will forever love you and we will always be connect by the invisible string connecting our hearts. I love you!!!!!!!!!!
