In loving Memory of all the Furkids at the Bridge. You are so loved!
THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
AT RAINBOW BRIDGE
'Twas the night before Christmas, at Rainbow Bridge too.
We Bridgekids were thinking as always of you.
We'd seen how the holidays weren't bright this year,
Heard you whisper so often, "I wish you were here!"
We know how you wish you could just stay in bed
And sleep through the holiday lying ahead,
When all celebrate with their loved ones so near...
Unless they have loved ones on this side this year.
But we're no less alive here, on the other side.
If you could just see us, you'd've laughed and not cried.
The dogs all in harness, pulling the sleigh.
The cats all in Santa hats pointing the way.
The pet birds all flying back over the rainbow,
Bound homeward in spite of Earth's darkness and snow.
All the pets that you've lost, pets for whom you've cried,
Flying home on this Christmas to be by your side.
If you feel warm fur brush you when no pet's around,
Hear a soft bark or purr, just a ghost of a sound,
We're trying to tell you we're visiting this way,
And our visits, even rainbows, can be on any day.
But for Christmas we have something special to do,
A sleighful of happy dream visits for you.
On doggy, on kitty, on winged friend and ferret!
The love that you lavished, we mean now to share it!
We're fetching that love home, the way we once played,
With the closeness we shared and the memories we made.
Our Earth lives with you were too short for us, too,
And on this Christmas Eve we have so much to do.
So all through this night as you sleep in your beds,
Sweet visions of furbabies dance in your heads.
This one special night we can bring you Home for a while,
Your true home in Heaven, where again you will smile.
Over the rainbow you'll fly, for a short while this night,
Hours that you'll be happy, hours that will feel right,
Hours to cuddle and hug us, to run and to play,
Before the return to Earth in our magic way.
And when you awaken and face Christmas Day,
We pray you'll remember your trip on our sleigh,
But in case you forget, just remember our love.
Remember us watching you, your angels above.
Sending love wrapped in rainbows, shining and bright,
Love that will guide you through the darkest night,
Love found in each memory unwrapped through the year,
Replacing dark sorrows with Christmas cheer.
Leave the toys to St. Nick, we Bridgekids bring dreams,
Sweet visits to remind you all is not as it seems
When you look all around you with tired Earthly eyes.
If you saw as we do, there'd be joy and surprise.
There are furangels waiting by those Christmas trees,
Always there for you and hearing your pleas.
We're never more than a thought away from your home,
You're never forgotten, you're never alone.
Nor are we alone here, with our Rainbow Bridge friends.
We know only joy here, the celebrating never ends,
And after our reunions with you Christmas Eve,
We Bridgekids will party like you'd never believe.
But we'll slip away often to be by your side.
Sitting there watching you, eyes open wide,
Praying you'll be able to catch a glimpse of us, too.
But whether or not you see us - Merry Christmas to you!

I want to thank everyone for all the gifts & the beautiful thoughts & kind words you left when you visited KJ's page. It has really helped me come to some kind of terms with losing my boy. And I am sure he is looking down on me & saying, "see Mom, I told you it would help". And it really has helped to write about him.
It is going to be a blue Christmas around here with out KJ poking his big gorgeous head into all the boxes & tying into a new bone after opening his presents. But I know his Spirit is with me & he will truly be here with all of us. He is forever a part of me & that part is what keeps me going.
Thank You All for being there for us.
Wishing Everyone a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year in 2016.
Love to everybody & their furbabies!

KJ's mom here. This is an entry my heart just would not let me make until this moment. On April 6th, 2015 at 12:30 pm my beautiful big gentle boy KJ left this world as I held him in my arms in our front yard. Our vet thankfully was able to come to our home on a moments notice. KJ had been fighting severe arthritis in his back legs for months. I had a lifting harness I used during this time to help him up & down our front deck into the yard or just to help him around the house. He had turned 11 years old only a couple months before. On Friday, the 4th of April I knew he was having more pain because he just could not get comfortable any way he tried. The pain pills were not doing their job anymore. After a lot of soul searching, all I had to do was look into those big brown eyes & I knew what I had to do. He was so tired & I could see it in his eyes. Spent the weekend sleeping on the floor with him & spoiling him with whatever he wanted to eat. And then it was time to let go, to let my Angel Kiska, who sent him to me, guide him "Home".
I will never forget the first time I laid eyes on him and his sister Rain. Those big, big paws on such a little boy. I knew he was going to be a big one. But always so gentle. Whenever he would play with my sister's little dog he would lay down and roll over on his back while they played so as not to hurt him. He loved everyone, but from the start he was mama's boy. He became my shadow from the moment we met & I miss that shadow so much. I miss seeing him waiting in the yard as I come up the drive. He refused to stay indoors when I was gone somewhere. He had to be able to watch for me. How I loved seeing him jump all over & get so excited the moment he saw me. He was a lover of water & could never wait for the pool to fill up in the summer before jumping in it. We had a favorite spot in one of the parks in town where he could get in Rapid Creek and do some swimming. How I loved watching him in the water. Water & snow & he was in his element. I have so many beautiful memories of him that bring so many tears. I know in time the tears will turn to smiles as a memory crosses my mind, but that time is still a long ways off for me.
So many things remind me of KJ every day. And every time I sit down on the couch to watch tv at night I expect his big head to be on my feet & sometimes I truly can feel him there with me. I have started to write this entry so many times, and finally after 35 weeks, 5 days, 12 hours, and 8 minutes later I am finally able to write this.
I miss my shadow...
In loving memory of the sweetest boy ever, my Angel KJ
Feb. 19th, 2004 to April 6th, 2015
I will ♥love you always, Mom
The days drift by.
I'm in a daze,
Time stands still,
Without you here I have no will.
You were my everything,
My heart, my soul, my shadow.
Without my shadow I am nothing.
When will the tears stop?
I don't believe they ever will...
Until the day we are together again
At the Rainbow bridge.
The days seem so long.
Drifting by so slowly without you,
Time is standing still, waiting,
As if I think you will come home again.
For you to give me a sign
That you are safe,
That you are happy,
And that you are in the Lord's care again.
Run like the wind North of the Bridge sweet boy until we meet again...

I can't begin to thank all of my pals for being there for me & my family during my hospital stay & on my return home. So many thoughtful & loving messages, gifts, emails & comments in our diaries. We couldn't have made it through without your support!
It truly was bittersweet for mom. So thankful that I was getting better & could come home. But so sad that her sister's dog, Kiana, would not be coming home too. We miss her so very much & want to thank you all for the prayers & loving messages for her. Mom has been wanting to make a page for her. She has a special place in mom's heart as she was our Angel Kiska's sister & she has been in mom's life since she was a pup. She has just been overwhelmed lately & just can't seem to concentrate on much these days. Maybe when things settle down a little she can make a memorial page for her.
As for me, I am improving daily. My appetite is getting better each day. Of course mom is cooking all my meals as I really don't want that dry dog food any more. She is going to have trouble getting me off homecooking!
I am taking liver supplements daily & will go back for a blood panel in a couple of weeks to make sure that all the levels look good. She was thrilled the other night when I came running out of the bedroom with my big green moose wanting to play! I haven't done that in quite some time. I am getting stronger with each day!
So many to thank, that will take us some time but mom is determined it will be done! We love you All!
Thank You For Caring...
♥Love♥ & Mal Kisses to All!

It is with a sad and heavy heart we write this entry. My mom's sister's 10 yr old Malamute, Kiana, made her journey to the Rainbow Bridge shortly before noon on August 11th 2009. She could not overcome the liver failure & it was time to let her go home. My mom went with Kiana's pawrents to say goodbye. She could not let her leave without telling her how very much she loved her & what a special place she had in her heart.
Our beloved Angel Kiska & Kiana are sisters. Our mom got Kiska the same day our Aunt got Kiana. They grew up together & were constant playmates until we lost Kissa in 2004 to Cancer. Mom says they are together again & the first thing they probably did was head for the water. Their favorite thing in the world!
We are heartbroken she had to leave us & will miss her welcoming howl every time someone came home, that gorgeous smile when you called her name & her singing when you asked for a song . Mom is so glad she got to spend the last 3 months with her. She & her family have been living with us since May. Please say a prayer for them.
Thank all of you for your prayers, your love & support for myself & Kiana. I can't tell you what it has meant to my family & I for there simply aren't words to describe what all your love & support have meant to us. We LOVE♥ you ALL!
In Loving Memory of Angel Kiana...

I am HOME!
Mom came to get me late this afternoon! I was never so thrilled to see her. And I know she was GLAD to see me.
My liver values are continuing to go down, not there yet, but we are getting there. Came off the IV fluids yesterday & values were still lower today. ALT under 300. I refused to eat while at the vet clinic, so doc thought it best if I went home. Maybe I would eat for mom. I was getting pretty hungry since my last meal on Aug 1st! So tonight I ate for mom!! Not a full course meal, but I ate!
She was thrilled. Mom & my doctor will be monitoring my progress. I am still on antibiotics, Denosyl & Denamarin. Will stay on this for a month or so and then check my liver values again. We couldn't have done it without your pawrayers!
But sadly, my housemate Kiana, is very, very sick and has gotten much worse since she went in on Friday. The treatment is not working. Tomorrow will tell us what we need to know. The vet said she couldn't come home even for a day or so, she is too sick. If there is no improvement by tomorrow we will be saying goodbye to our beloved Kiana. Pawlease say a prayer for her...
Love & Thanks!
