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....

Lady (2009 to January 2022)

Lady was truly a lady. She was picked up off a Kansas City, Missouri street on a freezing January eve in 2011. Her coat was so encrusted with snow, mud and ice that no one could tell what she was other than a half-gone dog. After a good bath and grooming her beauty was a stand-out! We nick-named her “A Hollywood Dog”. Take a photo or talk to Lady, she would cock her head and let you know she was made for the movies. She became a Mo-Kan rescue in 2011, and fostered by Emily G. and Kathy S. Rick and Carole Carter filled in as a weekend dog sitter and could not pass up the chance to adopt her. Through her years, she was adored by friends and family. Her favorite place was the dog park. You knew she was headed that way when she would sit up so big and proud in the passenger seat. After many wonderful years, Lady went to doggie heaven. It was the kindest gesture to help her through a fast-growing lung tumor in her final days. Lady gave in her 13 years, all that a Border rescue has done for many of us!

Lexi (was Kyp) 2007-2020

It’s with a heavy heart that we had to let our beloved Lexi travel to the rainbow bridge. This little dog blessed us with the most amazing 13 years we could ever ask for. We played in snow on a mountain top, ran the wide beaches of the Oregon, and learned to swim in the backyard pool. We navigated agility courses in Illinois, trained with the greatest of flyball champions in Texas, and attempted some amateur mini-horse herding in Missouri. We travelled all across the country, visiting 23 different states. We saw the Grand Canyon, stood strong next to 300 foot tall California redwoods, peered into Mt. St. Helens, gazed at incredible stone arches in Utah, and set foot in Death Valley. We did this all while our amazing loyal pup never complained about relocating 3 times, moving into 4 different homes, leaving familiar spaces to make room for new ones, as she loved life and lived it to its fullest. She was taken too early from us and it feels awfully quiet, but we rest in comfort knowing she’s in a bet ter place, healthy and happy, and that we spent the most amazing lives together. This isn’t goodbye little dog, as I know I’ll see that smile again, when we cross the rainbow bridge together. I’ll bring an extra frisbee.   Jim and Sam


Lucky was a stray from rural Missouri that was within hours of being euthanized when a Border collie lover, Aaron, stepped in and saved him. He was a gentle guy with eyes so solem and sad until he realized there was hope and love in his life from his new foster family!

Unfortunately, Lucky was diagnosed with Heartworms and had complications during treatement. He was fortunate to know love and kindness from his foster family.
