We Sit Quietly And Reflect Upon Our Memories
Of Our Animal Friends That Have Crossed Over The Rainbow Bridge
May They Rest In Peace






They Are Your Friend, Your Partner, Your Defender, And Your Dog

You Are Their Life, Their Love And Their Leader
They Will Be Yours, Faithful And True, To The Last Beat Of Their Heart
You Owe It To Them To Be Worthy Of Such Devotion

Dogs Are Linked To Paradise
They Don't Know Evil Or Jealousy Or Discontent

To Sit With A Dog On A Hillside On A Glorious Afternoon
Is To Be Back In Eden
Where Doing Nothing Was Not Boring
It Was Peace

Mitzy

Sheltie__Born Unknown__Died 12-12-1998
Mitzy came into our lives because of a lead I received
She was at the pound, desperately needed a family to adopt her
So timid and shy she was in the beginning
Abuse in her life was suspected
Mitzy soon found that love was all she would receive from us
It made her the most loyal we had ever seen
By my side she remained for her all too short life
Mitzy passed on at about the age of seven
I can still see her playing and chasing bubbles we blew in the air
Those were the most wonderful five years she knew
Not a day goes by that we don't miss you Mitzy
You will remain in our hearts forever

A Compassionate Person




Katie

Died 04-21-2001
I've attached a picture of Katie, my beloved Protector
Albeit it is one when she was younger, but her spirit was already set
I sent her to the Creator this evening, it was time to let her go
She would have been 13 in August
She has been getting more feeble over the last two years
Last night it was evident she was in pain
When I took her to the vet I was gently told that it would only get worse
She started limping and whimpering last night
She had a couple growths of unknown value
Of course I knew when I took her what the outcome would be
I sat with her until she drifted into that peaceful sleep with no pain
I cried
I had already called Running Deer
I asked him to have the children pray for her swift and safe journey to the Creator rather than her continued existence in pain in this realm
There were three of them sitting and praying around my medicine wheel in the front yard
Running Deer and Little Fawn are taking Katie to the Tribe's burial ground tomorrow
To lay her where the Ancestors can enjoy the beauty and light of this wonderful four legged

Earth Woman, Running Deer and Little Fawn




Lady Bug (Buggy)

Terrier Mix__Born 1995__Died 2-25-2006
Buggy was an abused dog who came into my life suddenly
She was aloof and a loner just like me
But she had a lot of love to give
When Bobbie came into our lives she learned to love her as well
And she loved us with all her heart
Buggy, we love you and will never forget you
You will remain in our hearts forever

Owners
Bobbie And Rick
