dog dies, a cloud turns into an angel
and flies up to tell God to put another
flower on a pillow.
A Bird gives the message back to the world,
a silent prayer that makes the rain cry.
Dogs disappear, but they never
really go away.
They are spirits up there that put the sun to bed,
grass, and spin the earth in dizzy circles.
sometimes you can see them
dancing in a cloud during the daytime,
when they're supposed to be
They paint the rainbows and the sunsets
and make waves splash
and tug at the tide.
They toss shooting stars and listen to wishes.
when they sing windsongs,
they whisper to us,
don't miss me too
The view is nice and
I'm doing just fine.

the happiest and most exuberantly joyful dog I have ever
He found delight in each and all!!!
To those who knew him, his sense of
humor was infectious!!!!
He could cajole even the most somber into gleeful
He was adored by so many.
life was eons too short...
but, thankfully, it was a life lived to the fullest.
May we all be so fortunate.

God looked around His garden and found an empty place
He then looked
down upon the earth and saw your tired face
He put his arms around you, and
lifted you to rest
God's Garden must be beautiful, He always takes the
He knew you were suffering, He knew you were in pain
He knew that you
would never get well on earth again
He saw the road was getting rough,
the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered
"Peace be thine"
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go
For part of us went with you, the day God called you

Ruger, you were not just a dog, you were my best
You enriched my life in so many ways.
I am a pretty shy person, and you
helped me be more sociable with people.
You were such a great conversation
seems like I could talk for hours about you and never tire of it.
presence with me was noticed by many.
It was kind of hard to miss the two of us.
You loved to be held and people loved to see you in my arms.
You brought a smile
to many people's faces.
There are many people throughout the Northwest who knew
you and will miss you.
You brought joy and love to so many people.
I miss you
more than I can express.
You will be remembered by many as a very special dog
who loved me as much as I loved you.
We had a special bond, you and I.
you will be happy until I can come to join you at the "Rainbow Bridge".
With all of my heart I will remember you.
