Chewy

A sweet loving boy, I will always keep you in my heart.
I will miss the way you nudge my leg with your wet nose.
The smile you give me when I rub your tummy.
Always waking me up if you have to go so there's no accident in the house.
Your joy when you're running in the snow or grassy field.

Thank you for all the joy you gave us.
You are such a good, good boy.

Mommy and Daddy love you.

Missing Visits
by: Katherine & Cary Woltkamp

Chewy, we will miss your visits, with you behaving perfectly and our angel dog behaving badly. Now you will be the real angel, so be watching over our dogs and help them to act better. Love you.

Rainbow Bridge
by: Brenda Stricklin

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 and 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 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. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away 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.
