Tribute


Many of our furriends have gone to the Rainbow Bridge dis year and is furry heartbreaking and sad... our beloved Keiko included. We want to post dis poem fur everyone in their honor

By the edge of the woods, at the foot of a hill
Is a lush green meadow, where time stands still
Where the friends of man and woman do run

When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next

Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest
On this golden land, they wait and they play
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness

For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness

Their limbs are restored, their health renewed

Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued

They romp through the grass, without a care

Until one they they start, and sniff at the air.

Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack

For just and instance their eyes have met;

Together again, both person and pet.

So they run to each other, these friends from long past
The time of their parting is over at last

The sadness they felt while they were apart,

Has turned into joy once more in each heart
They embrace with a love that will last forever

And them, side by side, they cross over... together.

  4. A lovely tribute!

    We lost our Molly in September, she was almost 19, a good long life but it was still very difficult.

    We have not visited your blog since you got Zulu, it is so nice to see how much they love each other now :-)

  5. We are still so sad over Keiko. It was such a rough year, especially with Keiko, Inigo, and Sniffie all going in such a short period of time! Our wish for the new year is that the gates to the RB stay shut for a long time. All the best for you and your family.

  9. Yes, there was a lot of sadness this year. We lost our Crystal so we understand how you and the others feel. He brought so much joy into our lives, just as Keiko brought to you.
