The Family's Dogs

"Domino" Our first dog I can remember. He was born in about 1970.
"Boogie" -- An Old English Sheepdog mix,
turned up as a stray on my mom's doorstep as a
half grown pup. She was delighted to visit nursing homes
and do 4-H demos and was my "guinea pig" obedience dog.
She attained her "TT" (temperament test), making her
one of the first mixed breeds to do so. She passed on at
approximately 13 years of age.

At the Rainbow Bridge, they shall wait......
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 medows, 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. The old frail animals are young again. Those who are mained are made whole again. They play with each other. There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up! The nose twitches! The ears are up! The eyes staring! And then one suddenly runs from the group. You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated. (Unknown)
