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....

Pippi (fka Mitzie) 2005 - 2019

I want to thank you for 14 amazing years with Pippi (originally called "Mitzie") whom I adopted from Mo Kan BC Rescue in August 2005 from a foster home near Kansas City. Pippi came into my life at about 1.5 years old when I was a graduate student in St. Louis. Like her namesake Pippi Longstocking, she had a friendly and adventurous spirit her entire life, quickly befriending anyone she encountered. When I adopted her, she was still so agile that she could jump my 6-foot privacy fence to socialize with the neighbor dog that lived behind us.

A few years later, she moved with me across the country to Baltimore, Maryland where she became a neighborhood fixture. Although some politicians may think of West Baltimore as a "disgusting, rat-infested" place "no human being would want to live," Pippi reveled in the positive attention she received from neighborhood kids and adults alike. She made the 'hood her home.

I'm so grateful to have had her in my life and want to thank all the volunteers and staff at Mo Kan BC Rescue for their work on behalf of dogs like Pippi. She was a scrawny,shy girl with patchy fur when I met her but she blossomed into the most incredible and loyal companion.

Thank you!
