Thank you pals for remembering me on this sad day. It was 11 years ago today, also on President's Day that year, that I went to the rainbow bridge. My family was sad but I know that even today they love me like they did when I was with them.

I really appreciate everyone remembering me this day and thank you all for the stars, special gifts, and rosettes. It means so much to have everlasting love.



Hard to believe

It is so hard to believe it has been 10 years since Sandi left us and crossed the Rainbow Bridge. She was an exceptional girl and she really taught us so much. She has been a heart dog and one who gave so much. She also truly taught us the importance of adopting and saving a life. She is very special. When we moved to MN we moved with our human kids and our three girls, Sandi, Tara, and Kammie. All three helped us with transitioning to a new area where we didn't know anyone.

We miss you Sandi, thank you for all you did. We planted forget-me-nots for you yesterday and hopefully they will blossom so they can be transplanted in the spring.

Also, RIP Mindy McCready, who died today. Such a tragic loss


Rainbow Bridge - 9 years

It was 9 years ago that we said our final goodbyes and not a day goes by that I don't think of you. Sandi, you are loved and missed.

A Bridge Called Love

It takes us back to brighter years,
to happier sunlit days
and to precious moments
that will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to those
from whom we had to part.

There is a bridge of memories
from earth to Heaven above...
It keeps our dear ones near us

It's the bridge that we call love.

Rainbow Bridge Day

Today is my 8th anniversary at the Rainbow Bridge. I hovered around my family today to let them know I am OK. I am always so happy to know they are still thinking of me. On Earth I loved them SO much and I always stayed right by their side. I felt comfort with them but I heard them say they were the ones who felt it. Today I also saw them celebrate my day by treating the pups with some ground turkey in their dinner and also by making a batch of chocolate chip cookies. They knew they were bad for me but they also knew that it was the one and only item I ever tried to steal. I know I mentioned it before, but that is how I became the cookie queen.

Thanks so much for the lovely gifts on my page. I really makes me feel all warm and cozy and I know it brings comfort to my family.

Sandi the angel girl

Dearest Sandi,

We're so sorry to be posting the anniversary of your crossover a day late this year. We have had so much going on with Josh in the Navy, but it really is no excuse to not remember to post on your page. I know you forgive us because that is how you were in life, but know that even though we didn't remember to post, we NEVER forget about you. You were our rock for many years and you changed our lives forever. You went from that tiny little puppy that was anemic from fleas and worm filled when we got you and flourished into a wonderful and beautiful dog. You were truly beautiful from the inside out.

Mom and Dad

Her Journey’s Just Begun

Don't think of her as gone away-

her journey's just begun,

life holds so many facets-

this earth is only one. . .

Just think of her as resting

from the sorrows and the tears

in a place of warmth and comfort

where there are no days and years.

Think how she must be wishing

that we could know today

how nothing but our sadness

can really pass away.

And think of her as living

in the hearts of those she touched. . .

for nothing loved is ever lost-

and she was loved so much.

Sandi was LOVE

For us Sandi was LOVE and everything it stood for. Never for a moment did we ever feel she would have been happier with someone else. Her soulful brown eyes always glistened as she looked at us and her beautiful plumed tail was always wagging. Sandi, you were a gift from God and now you are with your glorious Creator. We are still missing you and thinking of you Sandi, our beloved cookie queen.

"In the Candle's Glow"

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.

Cookies for Sandi

Today we would have celebrated Sandi's 19th birthday. We miss her terribly and to celebrate her life with us, we baked a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies for Sandi. We hope you could smell them from heaven! Now we know chocolate chips are bad for dogs, but in life the only thing Sandi searched for to steal were chocolate chip cookies. We bought her carob cookies to satisfy her sweet tooth but on occasion she managed to swipe a cookie or two. We called her our cookie queen.

So today sweet Sandi, we had cookies in your honor and we hope you know we are thinking of you.

Your family


I'm still loved

It was six years ago that I left for Rainbow Bridge, but there isn't a day that goes by that my family doesn't think of me. I was truly the first love for mom and dad. I really showed them the true love and devotion that only a beloved dog can reveal and for that they are grateful. After I passed away, mom searched for the very best song to fit my life with them and although there are so many that could work, mom chose a song by Natalie Merchant called Kind and Generous.

Sandi the Angel Girl


Kind and Generous by Natalie Merchant

la la la la la la la la la.................

You've been so kind and generous, I don't know how you keep on giving
For your kindness I'm in debt to you
For your selflessness, my admiration
For everything you've done, you know I'm bound, I'm bound to
thank you for it....

la la la la la la la la la ...........................

You've been so kind and generous, I don't know how you keep on giving
For your kindness I'm in debt to you
And I never could have come this far without you
For everything you've done, you know I'm bound, I'm bound to
thank you for it....

Na Na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na

Oh, I want to thank you for so many gifts you gave with love and tenderness,
I wanna thank you
I want to thank you for your generosity, the love and the honesty that you gave me
I want to thank you, show my gratitude, my love and my respect for you,
I wanna thank you

Oh I want to thank you, thank you, thank you,
thank you, thank you, thank you...

-------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------------------
While the lyrics may be simple, they can be no truer that what Sandi brought to our family. Never wanting and always giving. We love you Sandi. Until we meet again, know that we love you and think of you always.

Mom and dad
