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....

Bea 1992 - 2008

At 16 and 1/2 years old Bea met with complications after slipping and falling on the ice.

But because of Bea I met my wife and this has had a huge impact on my life for which I am eternally grateful.In 1997 Bea earned a TDX (on my birthday of all days) which at that time was the top tracking title available from the AKC and as I understand it only a small percentage of dogs who earn their TD Title ever go on to earn a TDX. I can say with much certainty that tracking was Bea's best thing. Bea was also trained in herding. Bea was able to round up sheep or ducks and pen them fairly reliably (it was a great love of hers to do). Bea was a regular feature at our Lenexa offices and everyone who worked there knew her. One of her favorite things to do was walk or hike. Amazingly at the age of 14 she was still climbing mountains and I know that her hiking buddies will want to know about this because of all the long roads we have traveled together.

Bea will leave a huge hole, but I have very much enjoyed running with her and have appreciated every day we have had. Thanks Bea for the awesome journey and the great memories.
