This page is in memory of all the doggies everywhere who have passed over the Rainbow Bridge but especially the ones loved and lost recently by our friends.
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 our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All animals who have been ill and old are restored to health and vigour: 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 has been left behind. They all run and play together; but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent, his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly he begins to run 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 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 beloved pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

He travelled far - this picture was taken in

We will miss him greatly

I hope this email reaches you and finds you and
Rita both well.
You may remember Mike, Ben and I visiting you in
2007 to choose a rescue dog to join our family
and consequently becoming the extremely proud
owners of Duke who you kindly brought to our
house in Widnes one Saturday morning (4 August
We were able to trace Duke back to the breeder
and discovered that he was born on 1 March 2006,
so just 17 months old when we adopted him.
Duke became the love of our lives and was adored
by everyone who met him.
Sadly Duke passed away on 10 August after a very
short illness and 10 very happy years with us,
his family. We are all still devastated and
finding it hard to come to terms with him not
being around anymore – he was such a huge part
of our lives. But, we know that we are also very
lucky to have had, in our view, the best dog in
I just wanted to contact you to let you know but
mainly to thank you both for letting us have
Duke in the first place.
Thank you and very best wishes,
Hilary, Mike and Ben

I thought you'd want to know and maybe her
original family too. Skye sadly left us today. I'm
devastated. Her legs had gone completely and she'd
stopped eating. I took her to the vets and he said
it's time. Sorry to bring such sad news. Simon

He went down hill very quick, went to vets on
Friday for his general 4 weekly weigh in and
check up on the lethargic attacks he kept having
as he was on previcox which seemed to help him
but they gradually stopped working over a couple
of days so became obvious they was just masking
something as he’d started to cough and seemed
weaker, when we arrived at the vets and was
checked over his heart rate was 150 and his
respiration was 33 beats instead of 15ish so was
referred to emergency vets on the Saturday to
have tests done for suspected fluid around his
heart or anaemia. By the time we got him to the
vets on Saturday for his appointment he was
lethargic and had started wetting himself and
his abdomen seemed , we left him at 1.45 and got
a phone call at 2.00 to say the results from his
scan was in & he was bleeding internally into
his abdomen from his spleen probably from a
ruptured tumor that had been a slow leak and
turned into a bigger one. The cough was a
symptom of tumors that may have already spread
to his chest or fluid but wouldn’t of known
unless he was opened up but that was too risky
as the pressure from draining the blood would of
been too much. We sat with him and fed him a
burger and cuddled him while he went to sleep.
There was literally nothing that could of been
done for him even if we had him opened & removed
his spleen which they couldn’t do due to the
fluid he may of only had 2 weeks as it seemed it
had spread to his chest rapidly and we would of
just bled out. There’s was only 2 options to say
goodbye or let him suffer for the sake of maybe
2 weeks more which would of been for selfish
Thank you so much for the opportunity to have
such a dear friend & companion he was like our
child and had touched so many people, he was
well loved and liked by so many. Its devastated
our family as he was never just a dog but a
family member, but now he’s running free with
all his friends and probably scoffing his face.
He will never be forgotten and will always be
missed by not just us but so many others.
P.S iv added some late pictures of him.
