The Road Ahead...Loosing a Beloved Companion...click here
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 of 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 the animals who had 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. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. 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 finally 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 pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
Dedicated in memory to ALL the Corgis, Corgi mixes, two Pit Bulls and other "Furfriends" who have gone over the bridge.

Tettra will always be in our thoughts and hearts.
She can never be replaced, after all, how can you
replace a best friend/dog soulmate who gave you
unconditional love, and asked nothing in return?
Lucy was my companion, sidekick for 10 years.
I was able to adopt her at age 3.
She has gone through with me some of my
roughest moments and some of my best.
She will ALWAYS be in my heart.
"Jitterbug" aka Bugs was one of the best
mothers I have come across with breeding
Corgis. Her puppies were all very nice.
Bugs will always be in our hearts.She was
one of our housedogs and truly a joy for
both Karl and I.We love you Bugs!
We all miss Fizzy so much!!!!
He was SUCH a sweetheart!!!

Oh, Gunnar, you were always there,
Supportive and always approving.
Always forgiving, never expecting,
A perfect example of love.
An empty bowl, a quiet house,
The balls in the yard are all flat.
Thirteen years is not enough,
But you'll live in our hearts forever.
Rusty was only here on earth for 29 month before being
called to a more important position by his Higher Power.
But in that short time he gave two families a lot of love and joy.
We will meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.
With love, your two families.
I miss you my sweet boy.
In memory of Paddy...he was a sweet
loyal friend who gave us 12 years of
joy. We know you are at peace and
will always be in our hearts.
We miss you dearly.

To our little man:
You left us broken hearted, but you gave us three years of laughter, joy, and unconditional love. Our home will never be the same without you. We miss you and love you so much.

They will not go quietly, the cats who’ve shared our lives
In subtle ways they let us know their spirit still survives
Old habits still make us think we hear a meow at the door
Or step back when we drop a tasty morsel on the floor
Our feet still go around the place the food dish used to be
And, sometimes, coming home at hight, we miss them terribly
And although time may bring new friends and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts belongs to them. . . and always will
I first saw him at a truck stop trying to get in everyone's car in his benevolent persistent way. About 2 weeks later he showed up in our neighborhood and played with all the kids and dogs around. One little girl who had previously been afraid of dogs took him in.
I found him in the road after having been hit by a car. The family that had adopted him didn't want him after he was so injured. My wonderful vet fixed him up. Several years later, he had acute kidney failure from cheap dog treats made in China (never again). He amazingly lived through that!
But the lymphoma was the thing that got him. He was such a wonderful gentle little guy. He was such a lesson in making the best of whatever one's situation is. We'll miss him.

My childhood companion, my dearest
friend, you will never be forgotten.

Chester Copperpot Marburger
12/28/02 – 4/20/13
So I have to admit that I don’t know a ton of different dog breeds, but soon after starting to date my girlfriend Jamie I was soon introduced to the corgi. After meeting Jamie’s corgi, Chester, I soon started hearing other people talk about corgis often. I learned that the corgi was the royal dog of the Queen of England; I learned that some corgis were used as herding dogs; I learned that corgis were friends with fairies and that they even have “magical powers.”
When I first learned about the corgis “magical powers” I had to wonder what Chester’s magical powers might be. Was it that he could sense food being open or taken out from the refrigerator from rooms away? Was it his superior quickness to make food disappear before your own eyes when put in front of him? Was it is ongoing patience for his wild and younger brother Chase Muttley? Was it his ability to play the role of the peacemaker and bark to break up any conflict?
Chester was always a good dog and always well behaved. Although he would get right underneath you while you were eating, it was hard to resist throwing Chester a few scraps from your plate. He was always happy and appreciative. I remember taking Chester to his first corgi picnic this past year. I was at first very doubtful and thought that it was a crazy idea. We arrived and Chester started barking uncontrollably and took a nervous poop right by the car…I could only think to myself, “Oh boy, what did I get myself into?” I took Chester on a little walk to calm his nerves before we entered the picnic.
Well, once inside, it only took me a moment to realize that Chester was acting like all the other corgis that were there. They were all running around barking, playing with each other and having a doggone good time! It was to my amazement as well, that Chester knew where we were amongst all those people setup at the picnic. He would go run around and play and then always come back to where we were sitting. I was amazed at how well behaved and loyal Chester was. If I got up to walk around Chester would follow me around…I started to feel like he was somewhat my dog.
Of course, Jamie loved Chester and considered him her best friend…but Chester had the ability to show his loyalty and friendship to everyone and make them feel special. Whenever visiting Jamie, her brother Jordan would claim Chester as “his dog” and many nights Chester would sleep with Jordan. I even remember other people, friends of friends, coming over and claiming Chester as their dog or even sleeping over on the couch cuddling with Chester throughout the night.
That’s when I began to realize what Chester’s “magical powers” were…Chester had the ability to love and make each person feel special and like a best friend.
A DOG FOR JESUS
I wish someone had given Jesus a dog
As loyal and loving as mine
To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes
And adore Him for being divine.
As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog
Would have followed Him all through the day
While He preached to the crowds and made the sick well
And knelt in the garden to pray.
It is sad to remember that Christ went away
To face death alone and apart
With no tender dog following close behind
To comfort its Master's Heart.
And when Jesus rose on that Easter morn
How happy He would have been
As His dog kissed His hands and barked its delight
For The One who died for all men.
Well, the Lord has a dog now, I just sent Him mine
The old pal so dear to me
And I smile through my tears on this first day alone
Knowing they're in eternity.
Day after day, the whole day through
Wherever my road inclined
Four feet said, "I am coming with you!"
