Until we meet again at the rainbow bridge...

On Tuesday, November 29th our sweet old man Snoopy passed away, he was almost 15. That is a long happy life, but we definitely miss him. He has now joined Shadow up in doggie heaven. Shadow passed away the day after his 15th birthday, April 2, 2011. Neither situation has been an easy one, but it almost feels like Snoopy's passing has been a little bit harder on us, since now my parents' house is empty, but at least we know that now they are up in heaven running around together again. I can only imagine that Shadow was excited to see him, the same way he was when Snoopy came back to the house after being gone for his gallbladder surgery, a few years back.

Those two dogs were some of the best dogs you could ask for. Shadow has been a part of my life since I was 10! Basically, I can barely remember life before him. Snoopy found his way into our lives 5 years ago. Before him, we never even thought of having a second dog around, but after he came in to our lives we couldn't imagine it without him. It's very hard to not have them around, but luckily I have two sweet pups to love on me every day :) They also go visit grandma and grandpa quite often, so that their house doesn't get too clean or empty.

It's always fun to look back through pictures of them, so I'm using this page as a collection of some of my favorite pictures to remember them by.

We used to mesaure him by the squares of the kitchen floor

Always watching over us

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge,

When a cherished pet passes away, that pet goes to the 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 meet,
you cling together in joyous reunion.
The happy kisses rain upon your face;
your hands again caress the beloved head,
and you look on once more into the adoring eyes of your trusting pet,
so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together,
Never again to be separated….

  1. Thanks for sharing this with me Christy! :) I remembered that someone mentioned it to me a few weeks before Jack passed but I was too upset to read/think about it. I'm so sorry to hear about both your pups. I remember Shadow very well from when we were kids! Thanks for your sweet comment and words of support!
