The Rainbow Bridge
"There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. All the animals who have 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. Her bright eyes are intent; her eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion. 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 the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated."

Daisy ended her battle with epilepsy suddenly -- what was most likely an undiagnosed brain tumor due to her age, Daisy developed grand mal seizures in September of 2015. They were managed well until the night of December 14th, where seizure after seizure came, slowly taking its hold on her. Daisy tried her best to stay with us, but it wasn't to be. A devastating and sudden loss, Daisy will be forever missed.

We sadly lost Remedy suddenly in July 2020 when she was diagnosed with Thymoma, a rare cancer found in less than 1% of dogs and cats. We tried to come in hitting hard as we could to beat this cancer, but unfortunately Remedy did not make it through surgery. My second MACH dog, a 3x World Champion in Skyhoundz Disc....our perfect princess, the worlds best demo dog, and mother to my "Heart Dog", we were blessed to have her almost ten years but that time was not long enough. We love you, RemyD.

We lost Annie just before her 13th birthday -- Annie was diagnosed with Cushings in 2018 and with supplements and a diet change, she thrived and continued to rule the roost until her body became too tired. Annie was my first 'real' sport dog and my first dog I titled in agility and dock diving. Annie was retired in agility early due to lumbosacral disease in her spine but went on to introduce me to a variety of sports like scent work, lure coursing, and trick training. Her favorite tricks were blowing bubbles in a water dish and closing doors. Smart as a tack, and stoic until her last few days.....Annie will leave a hole in our hearts.
Thank you for the world you opened up for me (and for putting up with my learning curve along the way). Run free and chase those birds, Pants.
