Charles loved his puppies and only wanted to get them to safety

Best Tricks:
Stealing the hearts of everyone he met

Arrival Story:
Charles came into foster care after being pulled from a KY kill shelter with his litter of puppies. Everyone thought he was the mother because he was so attentive to all the pups. Charles loved his puppies so much and was relieved when they all made their way to foster care. Once the puppies were safe, the true extent of Charles' horrible past came into light. He was very sick and rushed to the vet immediately. The news was devastating, Charles' condition was terminal and he was in pain. Despite receiving the best possible veterinary care, Charles passed away during treatment. He lived just long enough to see his puppies to safety, but in the process he touched the lives of everyone who met him and even those who only knew of him and his final heroics.

Charles passed away December 11th, 2006. He was truly inspirational. His love was pure and true and he made a lasting impression on everyone he met during his very short time in foster care. We love and miss you. A famous quote dedicated to Charles- He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. - Gene Hill

Yesterday, I sent Charles' Dogster site to the gal who pulled him from the shelter and overnighted him just before he came to me. Here's what she said:

Hi Suzy,

Thank you so much for sending that. I am so glad that Charles has not been forgotten.

In the short time I knew him I was blown away but what a sweet boy he was. The way his puppies slept on his back so they could stay warm and dry off the cold concrete at the shelter. The way he would clean each one off and gather them all up like a mother hen.

I could not believe it when I took him off the transport and realized he was a boy. The night they stayed here, I had them all in a big x-pen together. It was a beautiful thing to watch the way he made sure that each one of them had gotten enough to eat before he took any food for himself. To be honest, I have rarely seen female dogs who were as good a mother as Charles.

Thank you for taking care of him at the end and giving him at least a taste of the life he should have had.

RIP Charles.



Christmas at the Rainbow Bridge

Those who have lost their best friends or furbabies will hold this very dear!

As the midnight hour approaches on Christmas Eve, a tremendous celebration begins. If you listen closely you will hear the exuberant sound of Bridgekids preparing for the remarkable moment that comes but once a year.

Puppies romp through the tall green grass, chasing butterflies and rolling over and over until fits of giggles bring them to a tumbling stop. The volume increases as kittens, cats, tigers and lions purr in pure delight while the wings of snow white doves gently caress the air. The babbling brook that runs beneath Rainbow Bridge overflows onto the edge of mossy banks and fins of treasured aquatic life quiver in anticipation of this most joyous event.

Nestled in the midst of this happy choir of Bridgekids are the littlest angel tots staring in awe at the majestic Christmas tree adorned with flowing strands of angel hair. Effervescent, twinkling stars seesaw elegantly from the sky and land in glorious harmony upon the stoic limbs of Heaven's most perfect Christmas tree.

Swaying to and fro in nearby rocking chairs are grandmothers, grandfathers, parents, aunts, uncles and loved ones. The sound of their whispered lullabies permeate the air as they sing to tiny angel babies resting quietly in their arms.

Like magic the clock approaches midnight and a great stirring is heard in the distance. Each Bridgekid stops and listens, knowing the time is near, and they choose a fleecy cloud on which to snuggle. The roar of purrs drops to barely an audible hum, the babbling brook ripples hypnotically and the flutter of downy feathered wings fall silent. Heaven's spirited toddlers climb expectantly upon the laps of angels while babies coo in tranquil unison.

Amidst the warm glow of candle light which rises from the earth below, the arms of the Bridge Keeper envelop the heavens and into the precious hands of each child and in front of each animal a holy gift is placed. With grand exuberance the ribbons are removed and left to fly on a tender breeze where they dissolve into showers of angel dust. As the golden lids of these heavenly gifts are raised, an amazing aura fills the sky, reaching down to the very core of the earth.

Ascending from each and every box is the greatest gift of all…unending, unconditional, all-encompassing love. This blessed love gently wraps itself around the cherished souls of heaven, warming their hearts with beacons of radiant light and bringing forth from angels an exquisite chorus.

As the clock strikes midnight the distance between heaven and earth is vanished. It is at this very moment on Christmas Eve that the Bridge Keeper, His children, angels and Bridgekids send a message to their earthly loved ones on the wings of this unbridled love.

Listening carefully with an open heart we will hear the familiar voice of our own angel whisper softly into our ear their Christmas message...

"Let me share with you this love of mine, always and forever. When you need me know that I am here. I have not left you for I am in your heart where I belong. Our love is eternal as is the brilliant glow of candlelight which illuminates the path to the heavens and Rainbow Bridge. I wait patiently as do you for our inevitable and glorious reunion.
I love you, I love you, I love you."
