Ross a.k.a. Rossman - January 2002, 11 years, 10 months old

I lost my best friend yesterday. After a long year, it was a humane decision to let him go. I am heartbroken, though, as he was my baby. He joined my family during college and we both survived a lot. My heart is broken, and my house is quiet. I miss him so much it hurts.

Stretch (Rainbows Stretcher Bar) - January 2002, 1 years, 6 months old

We lost our Stretch today after a short battle with lymphoma. He was a smooth hair red. We love him very much and know we will see him at the Bridge. We are all in mourning for him including our other three dachsies. Darby, one of our other 'kids', has been crying all afternoon. He is our empath boy.

Stretch we love you and will miss you so much.

To my precious baby...
I am going to mis syou soooo much! I already do! You meant the world to me. I can't believe that you're gone! You were only six months old and I just wish that I had never taken you to be spayed. Of all the mornings that I wake up late, I just wish I had wakened up late that morning! I was going to come back for you - now you're gone, and I know you're watching over me! My little angel, I love you with all my heart and I'm missing you!!! Muuah!

Love Luzette

Heidi P. Beckman - January 2002, 10 years old

Heidi, I cried harder and longer for you than when my mom and dad died. Looking at your pictures I start crying all over again. We miss you everyday. We had so much fun and it was ten GREAT years of having you in our family. Love forever, your Mom and Dad

Mutzi - January 2002, 16 years, 6 months old

My dear Mutzie, my baby girl, Mommy misses you soooo much! This past month seems to be a blur since you left us. Our house is not the same without your bubbly, loving personality. We all miss you terribly. I feel like a part of me has died with you. Mommy and Daddy's hearts ache for you every night. We miss you grunting in your sleep. We miss you getting mad at us for waking you up early. We miss your kisses and the way you protected the house! :) I want you to know that you are our most precious gift. No other puppy will be able to replace you. I still carry all the wonderful memories and times we shared together in my heart. You were my best friend. You saw me through all the stages of my life. You were always by my side. My loyal friend and companion. I know that we will be reunited again and take comfort in knowing that you're waiting for me with that long, hot tongue waiting to attack me!

I love you so much, baby girl!!

Oscar - 'Our Little Man' - January 2002, 3 years, 5 months old

My Dearest Son... I miss you so much... I look for you everywhere and feel your warm touch next to my skin still. I love you as I have no other. You have shared many a difficult times with me, and were my little rock when I needed you! I never dreamed you would be taken from me so soon!

Daddy and I want you to know that we are so sorry for having to send you to the Bridge at an early age. We just could not stand to see you suffer.... Please know, as I held you, my heart and soul went with you and that Daddy and I miss you with all of our hearts... P.S. Sassy, Pinky, PeeWee, Toby and Addie miss you too !! They are lost without their Best Friend.....and so are we.

I Would've Loved You Anyway

If I'd known the way that this would end
If I'd read the last page first
If I'd had the strength to walk away
If I'd known how this would hurt

I would've loved you anyway
I'd do it all the same
Not a second I would change
Not a touch that I would trade
Had I known my heart would break
I'd loved you anyway

It's bittersweet to look back now
At memories withered on the vine
But just to hold you close to me
For a moment in time

And even if I'd seen it coming
You'd still've seen me running
Straight into your arms

I would've loved you anyway
I'd do it all the same
Not a second I would change
Not a touch that I would trade
Had I known my heart would break
I would've loved you anyway

I would've loved you anyway

Delta Bubo 'Boo' Chaix - January 2002, 12 years, 3 months old

Oh Boo,
Momma misses you so much. I love you my little baby. Please wait for me. I can't wait until we're together again. Momma is going to kiss you all over your little body.

Chester and Nexxa miss you too. I know you're with Chee-Wee, Tiny, Cheeta, Polly, Poncho, and Kenna. I need you to stay with them. I'm coming, and when I get there we can all cross together. Someday we will all cross the Bridge together and be together forever. I'm going to bring your little yellow face ball so we can play forever in heaven.

Your back is better I hope. I hope you're running and jumping and playing with bubbles. Doing perimeter check. I miss you so much my baby, I just wish I could hold you again. I want to smell your little furs. I want to hear your little wheeooo sound again. I want to kiss you and love you and hold you and never let you go.

OH GOD BABY! I MISS YOU SO MUCH!!!! I promise you I am coming.

I'm so sorry for leaving you that day. If I had known I would never have left you with the doctor. No one realised you were that sick. Dr Tosh called me as soon as she got you stable. I rushed over as fast as I could. I couldn't see you in that way. Your little heart had stopped and I think you had a stroke too. I had to make a choice. I chose for you to be allowed peace. I would have loved to fight further, but baby, your little body was tired. I hope I did what was right. I would have done anything to keep you, except cause you any pain or discomfort. We tried baby, we really tried. I love you too much to see you in pain. You'd had enough of that.

I still cry for you every day. Sometimes I feel like I'm going insane. I'm so lonely. I just want to be with you. Chester has moved into our room. She won't sleep with me in the bed (what's new?), but she is trying to keep me company. Nexxa has taken to greeting me each morning with a little smile and wag, but I think they know how much I miss you. They are trying, but they know how sad I am.

I love you so much my little me muffin. YOU ARE EVERYTHING IN MY WORLD!!!!


Princess Greene - January 2002, 17 years old

I will always love you and I know you are finally in a better place where you can hear and see again. Love, Mommy Pat.

Buster Brubaker - January 2002, 10 years, 11 months, 14 days old

My dear sweet Buster (Brubaker): My little 'wienie man', Mommy misses you so very much, buddy! You brought so much joy and love into my life. You were so faithful. You taught me so much about life and loving unconditionally. You were my best friend and no one can every take your place. Thank you for always being there for me and bringing me such comfort. You knew when I was upset and you always tried to cheer me up. Since you have been gone, there has been a big, black void in my life and I don't know if anyone could ever fill it like you did. You meant the world to me. Some days I don't know how I am going to make it through the day without you. I am looking so forward to the day when we will see each other again. You are dearly loved and sorely missed! Please meet me at the Bridge, my sweet boy! Mommy will be looking for you!

DiDi Rose - January 2002, 13years old

DiDi a beautiful, clumsy, loving, mischevious big red long-haired doxie who loved me at first sight. He also had a girlfriend by the name of Bandit who left him in August 2001 and we missed her terribly. They were a month apart in age and raised together. DiDi adored Bandit and would always groom her face and gave her kisses whenever he could. DiDi was alway trying to cuddle on my lap, but this was 40 lbs of pure love and my lap was not quite big enough. He always made sure that I had plenty of kisses and love when my life became a little bumpy. I know that both my little loves are together again and that makes me feel a little better. The hole they left in my heart will never be filled. DiDi left me knowing he left me in Brody's doxie's paws and that I was being cared for with love. DiDi and Bandit will always be a part of me, as well as my first long-haired red doxie by the name of Schade, so you see a doxie will always be a part of my life. Love and miss you all so much, your mom Shirley

Lady Schatzie - January 2002, 14 years, 6 months old

My sweetest Schatzie,

I never intended to take on an older doxie, but the moment we met I knew you'd become a special part of my life. Your elderly people loved you dearly, but their deaths left you alone and in need of someone to care for you. Your loss was my greatest fortune, and my life was blessed with you in it. You were so tolerant of your siblings that came and went through the years. You were my special girl, though - my Lady Schatzie.

I know you suffered in the end, and I'm so sorry... I wish I could have spared you that. At least you no longer have pain and you are young and full of life once again. I miss you so, my dear friend, and I'll remember you always with love and gratitude for what you brought to my life. We'll meet again one day.

Booboo-Arthur Boo Radley, Jr - January 2002, 16 years old

Booboo--I remember the day I adopted you and I thought, 'What have I done? This dog is not for me.' How very wrong I was. Boo, you - along with your stepbrother Jojo - turned out to be my very best friend. How I miss you! I know that you are keeping an eye on Jojo and all the others and letting them know what you think, you old philosopher. I can still picture you snuggling up in bed, jumping up to be with me, sitting on your tail for minutes at a time - I love you and will see you again someday. Thank you for your love. Your mama.

Pippi - January 2002, 16 years, 4 months old

Darling Pippi, always there for me, loving and gentle. There my faithful friend when Mummie died, my comforter. It is a year today, 7th January, since we said goodbye and you went to Rainbow Bridge. I miss you as much today. You have gone to join Mitti and Mummie, be happy, love each other, and wait for me, my treasure. God bless and care for you all 'till I join you. Your loving Missus Trissie

Brandy Macgregor - January 2002, 14 years old

Wait for us at the Bridge

Tiger - January 2002, 3 years old

Tiger, we love you and miss you so much. You will forever be in our hearts. You were and will always be our very first baby.

We now have your younger brother, Tinker, but he'll never replace you.

Goodby forever; We'll never forget you.

Caesar - a.k.a 'Fat Boy' - January 2002, 11 years old

To my beloved Caesar (a.k.a 'Fat Boy')
My angel from heaven - Cleo, your big sister, and I miss you so much - we talk and pray for you every day - I love you so much!

Stoney - January 2002, 4 years old

We miss you so very much with each passing day. You will not be forgotten and we look forward to seeing you running across the Rainbow Bridge when we get to see you and love you like we did here. We love you, Stoney Boney.
