Reading these dog memorials has brought me to tears. I felt the need to post for my pup that I had to put down 2-12-06 because of one of the most horrible diseases, cancer. RIP my buddy Jake, I will see you again. :cry:

(I love this one because it looks like he has a huge smile on his face.)

(He loved to dig holes in the backyard and sunbathe.)

I am sure most of you have heard of this poem, but I'm going to post it anyhow just incase someone hasn't. I cried the first few times I read it and now it just brings me hope and joy. It has really helped me heal.......

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....

He looks like a real sweetie. The first dog I ever had that was mine (not a family pet) I also lost to cancer. I thought my heart would never heal. It did, of course, but I still miss her terribly. Rest in Peace, Jake.
