This page was created so that we could have a place to visit and remember our feathered & furried friends which have departed Earth and are forever flying or running free in Heaven. While they are no longer with us in body, they will be forever with us in spirit and live long in our hearts.
On February 5, 2013, we lost our beloved Zeke, a 13 year old mini donkey. We don't know the reason why he died but we are heartbroken that he is gone. We are so grateful to have enjoyed the company of this wonderful little friend who made us laugh constantly, especially when he and his buddy, Niles, would play Tug-o-War with their toys or King of The Mountain on the dirt piles. We loved him so but know he will have a very special place at the Rainbow Bridge.
Rest in peace sweet Millie
Millie was a 7 year old German Shepherd who came to live with us in November 2011. She developed oral cancer a couple months later and succumbed to it March 7, 2012. Millie was an incredible friend and we will miss her very much.
Don't grieve too long for now I'm free. I'm following the path God set
I ran to Him when I heard His call, I wagged my tail and left it all.
I could not stay another day, To bark, to love, to romp or play
Games left unplayed must stay that way. I found such peace it made my day.
My parting has left you with a void, So fill it with your remembered joy
A friendship shared, your laugh, a kiss; Oh, yes, these things I too shall miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life's been full, you've given so much - Your time, your love and gentle touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief, Don't lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your heart and share with me. God wanted me now, He set me free.
Rest in Peace dear Bailey May 2005 to October 2011
"We miss you buddy"
Reebok passed over the Rainbow Bridge on December 12, 2001, after complications from diabetes. Reebok had been with us since he was a puppy (2/91) and we will miss him so much. Lhasa Apso's are wonderful companions and great watch dogs. Our home is very quiet and empty without our little "Bokker Dog".
Moose & Caribou
Moose (left) passed over the Rainbow Bridge in May 1998 after complications from old age. He was 17 years old. Moose had been with us since a kitten (1981) and moved with us to Alaska and back to Oregon during his lifetime. He had many adventures for a cat and had a very happy and wonderful life. We miss him so much.
Caribou (right) joined our family in 1983 while we were living in Alaska. Our young daughter saw him in a box in front of a grocery store where he was being given away, and felt sorry for him. After little coaxing, we agreed to take him. He was a wonderful companion to Moose and us for 15 years. He passed over the Rainbow Bridge in July 1998, also after complications from old age. He and Moose are together for eternity now.
Alex was our beloved cocker spaniel who joined our family as a puppy on Valentine's Day, 1990. He passed over the Rainbow Bridge in August 1999 after complications from glaucoma. He was a loving companion and a true friend. He is greatly missed every single day.
Alex & Moose
This is Alex as a puppy, March 1990, and Moose. They were good pals throughout their entire lives.
