Rainbow Bridge

This page is dedicated to all the dogs of our lives. 
Those dogs that have enriched our lives and that wait for us on 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....

Alfie (aka Roxy) 2004 - 2022

I guess you could say she was a “lucky dog”.  Alfie’s mom had just recently been rescued when she gave birth to a litter of six puppies.  So Alfie was able to spend the first couple of months of her life surrounded by her mother, siblings and wonderful foster family.

When Alfie came home, she was greeted by her big brother Stymie (a black lab mix).  His size was rather intimidating to such a small pup.  But Stymie seemed to understand her hesitancy and would roll over on his back when they played.  They loved running and chasing each other around the yard.  Alfie was lucky to have her best friend by her side for eleven years.

Playing ball was another passion of Alfie’s.  She was so smart that she knew all of her different balls by name (tennis, soccer, etc).  She also loved to “herd” all forms of water – whether it came from a hose, a sprinkler, a splash of pool water or a handful of snow.

When it was time to rest, Alfie could cuddle with the best of them.  She was so sweet and soft.

But in the end, we were the lucky ones.  She gave us her all and enriched our lives for almost 18 years.
