National Train Your Dog Month

Rainbow Bridge


Cooper, we did not rescue you; you rescued us, "Best MYNE Greeter” , he will live forever in my heart.    Go run free, Cooper, chase after those chipmunks and squirrels.

You were so brave when you lost strength in your back and hips this week. You still held your head high watching the workers.  Then Ken started the tractor, and you were all about chasing and barking at it !

My heart is breaking but I cannot wish you back. That is selfish of me and unfair to you. You deserve to be as happy as you are right now. I will love you forever and ever and ever.
The hardest thing I ever had to do was to let you go to Rainbow Bridge.  I knew the time had come. Now you are restored to the good health you deserve.

You were an amazing and  beautiful animal.  I am missing you more than words can express.   A huge void in my life not to have you here with us, you will be forever in our hearts.

Cooper has lived a full life and has brought happiness, love, companionship, and was a bright light into our lives. We will miss him.

MYNE  Midnight Madness------ aka Maggie

Nov 5, 2002—July 11, 2015

Nov 5, 2002—July 11, 2015

So now, she is gone. Forever. To the Rainbow Bridge on July 11, 2015

When you invest in a dog, you know you are also investing in a future heartache. I remember no one was interested in a Tri Female Sheltie;;;; only Blue s !!!!  So, Maggie became my first Sheltie !

It is impossible to prepare yourself for the loss of one of your best friends and most loyal companion. She was sleeping pretty deeply recently. She had lost her hearing,  I imagine it's pretty nice to sleep when you are deaf. Nothing but silence.

She isn't here, she will never be here again, and even though the Rainbow Bridge sounds like a nice place, I want her here with me at home.  I want to walk into  a room  and see her face looking  at me. "Where have you been, Mom?", she  seemed to be saying. I know that there are worse things than your 13 year old dog dying a relatively peaceful death .

Maggie was a close family member. It's true that she lived to a good age and had a great life. She was loved as much as any pet could be loved. She provided unconditional love and acceptance to me., Never  asking  for anymore. She had a pure heart and a sweet nature. She was a pleasure and a joy to be with. I will miss her forever.

Maggie joins her mother, Skye and her brother, Fred.  Playing together in the fields of happiness.

So until we meet again, “Maggie Moose”, at the Rainbow Bridge. I love you.
You will always be with me in my heart and on my mind.

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.

Toven Skye Blue Heaven  Memorial

June 2000- February 2014

June 2000- February 2014

I remember bringing you home.
Skye was the Mother of all; a family pet who was never a champion of anything except this:
T he love she brought into our lives was world-class.
As you got older, you moved around more slowly. Then, one day, old age finally took its toll. I
knelt down and patted you lying there, trying to make you young again. You just looked up at
me as if to say you were old and tired and that after all these years of not asking for
anything, you had to ask me for one last favor. With tears in my eyes, I drove you one last
time to the vet. One last time, you were lying next to me.
She has never asked for much from me;
Just to love and respect her.
To give her a good meal plus a nice warm bed.
When she has given me all her love and to her this was no task.
I have a small favor before she nods off to sleep.
Please fold your wings around her and let her feel young while in no pain ; please keep her
safe and happy until I see her again.
Dear Lord, please open your gates; come escort this beloved companion across the Rainbow Bridge.
Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss.
Help me remember the details of her life
with the love she has shown me.
And grant me the courage to honor her
by sharing those memories with others.
Let her remember me as well
and let her know that I will always love her.
And when it's my time to pass over into your paradise,
please allow her to accompany those
who will bring me home.
Thank you, Lord,
for the gift of her companionship
and for the time we've had together.
And thank you, Lord,
for granting me the strength
to give her to you now.

It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the passing of Toven's Skye Blue Heaven; aka Skye.  She has been  in our lives for  the past 13 1/2 years and has brought us great joy and happiness.  She will truly be missed.  As she crosses over the Rainbow Bridge, she will be joined by some of her family members and friends to play in the fields forever.   You will always be in our hearts and minds.  We love you,Skye.

Am/Can Ch MYNE Now and Forever, TDH Fred
November 5, 2002 - May 31, 2013

As a puppy you were so quick to learn different things.
An ever watchful eye and a desire to please,
Becoming an Am/Can Ch , then higher education to become a
Canine Good Citizen  and  a Certified Therapy Dog. 
So many Nursing Homes  and Children to visit with so many people in need of
caring and unconditional love !  Fred did his best to deliver what he could.
Makes your passing hard for the pain to ease.
Memories of you will forever fill our hearts,
Though your days beside us on earth had to part.
You were willing and able to tackle any demand.
You were man's best friend, keeping close at all costs,
Our hearts break, knowing we can't replace what's been lost.
We will keep your memory always, alive and strong,
We will think of you often, come the sunshine and the rain.
We will look forward to the day when we are reunited side by side,
And thank you for the love & loyalty you gave us  
But oh the ache in my heart....the loneliness .....the sadness engulfing me at missing you.
Even after trying to prepare to let go .....I wish you were still here....I wasn't ready to say goodbye.                                                                                 
We love you
Till we meet again!

October 31, 2004 - October 22, 2011

With a very heavy heart we made the decision to let Connor, my constant companion, cross The Rainbow Bridge … words cannot express the hole in my heart.

I hope with all my heart that you are reunited with your companions and happier than ever. I love you, sweet boy, and know how much you loved me too. I pray that I did the right thing for you. It haunts me with doubt, but I know you were failing fast and I tried everything I could. Be happy, sweet boy - until we meet again.

I pray that you knew how very much you were loved. Your precious face will be etched in my mind forever. Thank you for giving me the best days of my life. Our hearts are broken and will never never mend. Rest in peace my little man. With every ounce of love in my heart, I love you.




Nic's Green with Envy (aka Abby)
March 23, 1998 - June 19, 2009

Abby, a German Shepherd, was born to us. A very faithful and loving little girl; always was by my side and if she was not - she looked for my presence and scrambled to get there. She never went into the Show Ring, but she was my Demo-Dog for puppy classes finishing an exercise with a play-bow (it was so cute). Her favorite toy (a hand-ball) was always in her mouth; she would mouth that ball until it popped.

Her final days, she still protected her property by chasing a cat off the land.

Reunited with Kayli, Jake and Sam (Mom, Dad and Brother) who were waiting for her when she crossed the Rainbow Bridge, free at last to run and play.

I love you and miss you, Abby, You will always remain in my heart and thoughts

Cedar Knolls Sir Jacobson (aka Jake)
February 23, 1993 - October 14, 2005

What a great dog he was.
He was always dignified.
We had so much fun together,
many dog shows,
events we attended together.
Loved going for rides....
didn't matter where.
He loved to be the center of attention,
especially at shows.
Everyone loved him.
Jake brought me a lot of happiness
and was always a loyal friend
and companion.
He was my rock.
Truly is missed by myself.
I know in my heart he is
now running with Kayli.
I miss you, my "old man".
I Love You
