Together at Rainbow Bridge

Our girls have so eloquently written about the Chili Dawg which you can read here and here. I would like to share some memories with you.

Together at Rainbow Bridge.

Folks will know how large your soul is by the way you treat your dog.

To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge...
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing, they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
But the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted and when you and your special friend finally meet you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.


  1. Nice pics. Chili will be missed very much. I sure Leia and Fred will be happy to see him though. I can see Chili laying on his back while Leia beats him up and Fred barking from a safe distance.--Bill

  2. The original pack is all together now. Nice pictures, mom.

  3. The second picture of me and Chili Dawg made me cry. I loved him so much! I'm sure that Bear is showing him around and Leia is wrestling with him while Fred referees.

  4. Oh so sweet! What an anwful time for Jenna.:0( We have had our Cocoa for two weeks (minus one day when a mean lady sent her away and then came to her senses...whew!)and cannot imagine our family without her!!!!! Such sweet pictures.
