RAINBOW BRIDGE

With sad hearts and fond memories of our beloved pets who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge…

When one of our beloved pets pass away, that pet goes to a place called 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. 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 together you and your special pet(s) cross the Rainbow Bridge.

Fitz, GSRNE #433

“I can no longer see you with my eyes, or touch you with my hands.  But, I will love you in my heart forever”...💙 It is with great sadness that we announce Fitz, GSRNE #433 has crossed the bridge... Life isn’t often fair, and all too often our loved ones are taken too soon and robbed of a long life. When we heard about Fitz we were heartbroken for our good friend, Allison and her husband. They tried so hard, and did all they could for their handsome wonderful boy.  Allison welcomed...

Dawson GSRNE #514 1/18/2017 - 1/12/2020    Click for more photos of Dawson Password: Dawson Dawson was a quiet boy. He would go about his day either chewing his bone or carrying his squeaky toy long ball. He was slow to trust, but then bonded very deeply with those in his circle. He liked to sit with you close by and kept an eye on you, in case you should get up and move into another room. He would pick up his toy and follow to settle in again. He liked his blanket over a dog bed...

#499 Willi

Willi GSRNE #499 2/14/2009 - 6/2020    It is with sad and heavy hearts that we had to say goodbye to our very sweet boy, Willi. It took us by surprise and it hit us hard. We had come to nickname him "Brother," as he and Magnum were often causing mischief together, like good brothers do. Their morning wrestling matches were a ritual that both enjoyed tremendously, although the overturned chairs, dishes, and humans weren't always thrilled about them. Although we only had him in our lives for...

They got a second opinion, and the second vet found that Stella also had a tumor...

We love you with all our hearts. You have no idea how much we miss you, beautiful boy. We lost our beautiful Elvis suddenly to bloat (GDV). He was rushed to the hospital at the first sign, but they just couldn't save him. It's hard enough when we see our dogs slowing down and getting old, but losing one...

#458 Lemme

Lemme GSRNE #458 12/02/2007 - 11/24/2017    We are sad to report that Lemme has crossed the bridge on November 24. He had a tumor biopsied on October 28 and it was cancerous. He had other tumors that were not as large as that one, and his vet said it was Hemangiosarcoma. Lemme was a much loved boy who left us far too soon.

#453 Lexus

Lexus GSRNE #453 5/27/2018 - 2/2019    Click for more photos of Lexus Password: Lexus I had been trying to write this message for a while but kept breaking down. We had to put Lexie down. I felt a lump near her thyroid, and a biopsy revealed an aggressive sarcoma. We went to various specialists and more tests revealed that her lungs were already filled with many large masses--too many to count. The available treatments had a marginal chance of success and terrible side effects, and would...

Although the emergency hospital has not given us a definite cause of death, they did see a "spot" on her spleen during the MRI. She was bleeding internally and was given a transfusion, but her heart gave out. GSRNE sends our sympathies and prayers to her adoptive family on their heartbreaking loss and understand the...

#421 Gabby

Gabby GSRNE #421 5/16/2007 - 2/10/2018    We're sorry to report that Gabby has crossed the Bridge. She stopped eating again a couple days ago so we took her to the vet, and she was bleeding internally again. The night before, Gabby was otherwise happy and had no trouble at all--she ate "a bunch" of meat, so she enjoyed her last night, thankfully. She was such a lovely and loving girl, and we are all are going to miss her terribly. We're just so grateful that she had loving humans to dote on...

Bladder cancer took this handsome boy….😢 He was one of Jim Miller’s foster dogs. "I have lived with you and loved you, and now you are gone. Gone where I cannot follow, until I have finished all of my days."   ~Victoria Hanley It’s with great sadness that we announce that Tiger, GSRNE #419 has crossed the bridge.
