THE RAINBOW BRIDGE

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. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. 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. They all run and play together, 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. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Us Tribute To Ticker - Contributed By Betty Elvidge

On June 25 2009 we lost Fremonts Ticker Tape. He was 11 years 8 months old. We referred to him as our 14 point champion because he lacked his final major to finish. He leaves a legacy of great pups with the same easy going temperament as their sire. He never met a judge he didn't like nor a ring steward that he didn't want to go home with. As a result he had no obedience title. At one obedience trial during the long down another intact male sniffed Ticker from head to tail and he never moved. A spectator came up to us and said you have one wonderful dog. Titles are just the icing on the cake. Having a WONDERFUL dog is what it's all about. Good-bye our wonderful dog.


Us Imperial's Andromeda Galaxy - Contributed by Bill & Sandi - NightSky Saint Bernards

Drama came to us on 10-29-2006 at 8 weeks of age. A little ball of fluff weighing just 19 pounds. She was energetic and showed us how much she loved us every day. She loved to play "I've got it and you don't" in the yard with the other dogs, prancing around with a stick or a toy and taunting the others to try and take it away. She was 145 lbs at 18 months and one of the most beautiful Saint Bernards we have had the priviledge to know. She was Sandi's special girl, but we all loved her dearly and will miss her very much.
Drama went to the Rainbow Bridge to wait for us on 3/22/2008.
