Wow-zers! It's been 6 whole years since I left Mom and crossed over the Rainbow. Since then I have led others cross over and watched as family after family had to deal with the grief. It doesn't get any easier over the years but the dullness of the pain is what makes each day bearable.

Thank you to all of my Dear Furiends that have helped Mom these 6 years...Bless you ALL..

Oh Gee, It's hard to believe that I've been gone for 3 years already and Mom is surprised at herself still crying for me on my anniversary. She got some cool candles from her pal Nadine at A Chosen Moment website and she is burning them today next to my photo and favorite Mr. Bunny stuffie..xoxoxo.

Watching over you ALWAYS Mom!

Rainbow Bridge Day April 1, 2010

Today marks my 3rd Rainbow Bridge Day celebration where Mom sends up a balloon and note to me. This year Mom is including a poem she wrote for me to honor the spot where I was killed in our backyard by coyotes:

“Beneath These Branches”

Beneath these branches is where you were,
I heard no sound, not even a stir
You were so innocent to go that way,
My thoughts are on you every day.
Our last few moments are in my heart,
How could I know that we would part.

Although you’re gone and I still cry,
I see your Rainbows in the sky.
I know you’re free and filled with glee
I’ll see you soon, just wait for me

Beneath these branches I seldom walk,
But now and then we’ll have our talk.
Of how you filled my life with love
And how you watch me from above.

A little cross, perhaps a plot,
To honor you and mark the spot
Of when God called you home to Him,
In time little one, my pain grows dim.

We give up our hearts, we take our chances,
I see new life blooming
Beneath these branches

Two Years at the Rainbow Bridge

2 years at the Bridge ~ time sure can “fly” when you have wings…BOL! I’ve been watching over Mom since I left her and she mostly has good days. I see her staring at my pictures a lot, especially the one on her screensaver *sigh*. Mom still can’t believe I’m gone but watching me with all of my friends sure helps her TONS! I see she adopted yet another fur-baby in need and they even get to play with some of my toys…I don’t mind really because I had fun with them and I have new hobbies at the Bridge. I have met some super cool dogs and cats and it’s nice to know that I wasn’t the only furbaby in the world to be loved and adored. My new friends and I tell funny stories about things we used to do back home and we are also making new memories up here.

This would have also been my 11th Woof Day and I know that Mom would be starting to worry about my age by now, wondering how much longer I had with her. Sometimes Mom can’t decide if losing me in the blink of an eye was easier than losing me to old age and illness later on down the road. I feel bad for leaving her when I did; she was in the middle of so much heartache, only to have more heartache thrown at her over me..she really needed me during those terrible years and I know that is part of the reason she cried for me so much; sorry Mom!

Thank you to all of my pals who helped to support us both over these past 2 years, you have no idea how much you mean to mom and I.

Well, it’s time to fly off to meet my pals at our favorite spot next to the big Oak tree, I’m sure someone will have brought food and drink and there are always plenty of butterflies to chase and clouds to watch float by.

~ Rainbow Bridge Day 2009 ~

Hello Bubba,

It’s me again sending a special letter to you at the Rainbow Bridge. This past year has been so different since the last time I sent you a balloon…I hope you don’t mind that I only cry for you every other day instead of every day but I think about you every minute. Remember the old UPS guy named Joe? His truck comes by the office again and he asked about you…he was sorry to hear that you had gone on to Heaven; I told him about Jewels and he is looking forward to meeting her but we both agreed that you were One of A Kind!

I hope you still think about me when you’re not busy having fun with those crazy furs up there at the Turtle Pond! I’m sure right now you and 5 little cuties are plotting and planning some kind of silliness and as always I will be silently watching you play on the sidelines.

Make sure you keep spending time with all the newer angels who need you…especially little D-Max and White Boots…stay close to them in the Cat Nip Patch and help them watch over their family. Give Daisy and Putter a BIG hug and always tell them how much you appreciate their hard work at the Bridge.

I see Grandma Annie and Aunt Suzy all the time…G’Ma Annie still has your orange lobster toy and she won’t let little Lucy Lu play with it…she says it’s yours and she wouldn’t feel right letting another dog play with it…she really loved you!

You sent me a lot of Rainbows this year and I want to say “Thank You”…I took a few pictures of them to show some of your friends; I hope you don’t mind that I was bragging about you!

I picked out a nice blue balloon to send you this year as I know how you feel about the “pink stuff”….ha, ha! Now that I have Jewels I am getting my girlie pink fix taken care of.

You are and will always be my heart, my insides and my love.

Until we meet again,

Hut one..hut two...I got the pigskin handed off to me by my goodpal Lucas. Here are the rules: I'm gett'n my "team" together and we're gonna cross that line and make us a touchdown! Before the ref raises his boney little arms to signal the 6 points I gotta spill the beans (pffht..excuse me!) about myself and then pass the ball to 5 of my furiends who will each do the same. Don't forget to leave me a bone to let me know you got my hand signals and you're in the "game.

Are you ready...I'm going out for a long pass.........

1) I moved my mouth and pretended to "talk" like a human...people always thought I was choking on something..bol

2) I used to like sleep with my nose tucked under my armpits...aaahhhh..the aroma!

3) I had a secret crush on our cat! She was bigger than me and used to knock me over alot.

4) I used to hide from Mom and listen as she ran through the house in a panic looking for me..boy did I get it when she found me...heehee!

5) I used to try and bury things in the carpet and push my imaginary "dirt" back into my imaginary "hole". They have counseling for this I hear.

Okay, who is gonna run it in for a about:

Bill (Moved On)

I'm off to leave Lucas some bones now since he was good enough to include me in his game...I hope those bones make him feel better!!!

Merry Christmas!

This morning it was raining at Mama's house but the sun peeked out so I decided to send her a GIANT Christmas Rainbow from the Bridge. Mom and Grandma Annie went outside and knew I was watching over them on Christmas...Mama whispered "thank you" as she snapped a few pictures to remember my gift!

My Going to Rainbow Bridge Story...

October 8th 2008 3:42 pm
[ View A Comments ]

Well, most of you know how I went to the Bridge one night but I want to re-tell the story because it might help to save the life of another pup somewhere out there who thinks it could never happen to them.

My Mama and I lived in a tract house area but we were kinda rural because we were in an equestrian neighborhood. There were lots of wild creatures around like bobcats, racoons, opossoms, hawks and an occasional mountain lion. Mama always watched me like a hawk because she was afraid some barn owl or hawk would swoop down and snatch me up so I always stayed close to her. One day Mama found our kitty killed right in our own back yard by some coyotes so Mama got worried for me and was watching me extra hard. About a week later I begged Mama to let me go out in our backyard to go Pee-Pee so Mama let me out (it was dark outside already); she forgot that she had left the upper gate open because she was out picking peaches earlier to make a pie. Well, I slipped through the gate without Mama seeing me and she was looking all over for me and looked up just in time to see a pack of coyotes running off with my little body in their mouth...

Mama jumped the fence in her bare feet and ran after those coyotes with everything she had but they were too fast and disappeared into the night. Mama drove around our neighborhood calling my name and finally realized I was gone and crumpled onto the street sobbing. Mama always thought coyotes were kinda shy and would never approach if a human was around but she was wrong. She found out later on that some pups have been snatched right off their leashes as their owners were walking them!!! Mama isn't mad at the coyotes because she knows they don't know the difference between a pet and dinner for their pack. Mama was driving down the street a week later and slammed on her brakes when a coyote ran in front of her car...the thought of taking revenge on those coyotes has never crossed her mind.

Please let your pups who are still on earth know to be extra careful (especially the little ones) as this is a terrible way to leave your family. Mama was especially sad because she didn't have anything left of me to make ashes out of but my Grandma Annie found a clump of my fur in the backyard and Mama treasures this last little bit of me like it is worth a million $$$

Be safe out there Pups, I'll be watching over you tonight!

Oh Pawlease! As if I needed a quiz to tell me I'm "all that"...BOL!!!! Okay fans, my celebrity lifestyle has been revealed and apparently that imposter Snoop Dogg has been copying me...let it roll dogg.........

Cisco Kid is Smooth & Cool

Swingin' hard and keeping it real in his 'hood, your little homey is Snoop Doggy Dogg, yo.

Bustin' out superfly vocals that keep his lady friends perched, ready and on the edge of their seats, Cisco Kid knows how to have a good time with his peeps and is not ashamed to show it. A big fan of the bling bling, Cisco Kid is fashion fit and costume conscious, even willing to go a little over the top at times. Rich like butter and phat with flavor when he rolls, Cisco Kid is well aware of the heads he turns along the way. Often seen hangin' with the big boys, Cisco Kid is one tough cookie and knows how to paw his way out of a confrontation. But despite his occasionally feisty flare, Cisco Kid is romantic and poetic, a true-blue Casanova through and through.

Oh geez, is this me or WHAT??!!!
