The Rainbow Bridge
Inspired by a Norse Legend

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done. 
For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day. 
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued. 
They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack. 
For just that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last. 
The sadness they felt while they were apart
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side,
they cross over... together.
Gone, but not forgotten...
This was Murphy's Law, TDIAV.  He was a pretty sorry case when we rescued him (pictured below), but Murphy went on to be one heck of a buddy and therapy dog.  We miss you, Murphy!    ~Dawn

October 3, 1996 – November 29, 2011

Our beloved standard poodle, Oliver has passed on. He will be greatly missed by all of us. He was the happiest gentlest dog. He was active in Tale-Waggers until he retired. He did freestyle dancing briefly. He loved to lay on beds and couches. He loved to ride in the van and lay on the back seat. He loved to go for walks on our property and hunt for rabbits. He liked wearing dog coats. He loved chasing Frisbees and balls in our backyard. He tolerated going on vacations and fishing in our boat. He would roll over for one of his favorite treats Costco dog biscuits. Most of all he was a family companion and we are glad to have known him.
