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.

#473 Ramble

Rest in peace Ramble.  Our deepest condolences to all who loved you...💙🐾 Last week we were informed that GSRNE’S Ramble has crossed the bridge.  This handsome boy was 12 years old and very much loved by his family.  They told us his GSRNE sister, Riley who has been with him since she was 4 months old misses him terribly. Ramble had came from the South to a shelter in New England and had badly flea-bitten ears; at that time, he was 2 ½ or 3 years old.  The couple who adopted...

#472 Kai

Kai was a one of a kind dog; the most unique of all of the Shepherds we have had. Highly food motivated, really loved his people and could not care less about other dogs he encountred on his walks except for one in our neighborhood that received his ire for reasons only he knew. Active to the very end, he loved his daily routine which included car rides with his people, be it to get coffee or to go to the local state park. He was well known at every drive-thru window in town and was...

#469 Zeke

“I fall asleep with you in my heart in hope I see you in my dreams”…💙 “Sadly we lost our beloved boy Zeke on Friday, July 21, 2023.  Zeke came into our lives in September 2016 at 8 months old.  He was the most handsome young male we had ever seen.  The first month he was a normal, crazy, energetic, playful and social German Shepherd.  He was introduced to his older sister, Georgie, it took awhile but the two became inseparable. Zeke was in what we say “The honeymoon phase”.  He went...

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).

#453 Lexus

Lexus GSRNE #453 5/27/2008 - 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...

#450 Chloe

  The sweetest, well behaved, and oh so photogenic our girl was the best. We never heard her whimper, whine nor bark. She never initiated an approach, but happily gave many kisses and tail wags when approached. She had many dog pals whom she was always gentle. Our travels all over the country were her delight particularly ones she got to race across a beach and splash in the water.She aged so gracefully, and as the eyesight started to diminish and she took more naps we recall those...

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...
