Today we had to help our sweet beagle Patches over the rainbow bridge. DH and I both were with him and it was very peaceful. He was 17 and we had him for 16 great years! We miss him so much tonight!

I truly am sorry for your loss. Sixteen years may seem like a long time but as we all know, it's never enough.

I had a neighborhood stray cat named Patches. After I took her in she would spend hours staring out the glass front door. But if you approached the door she would head for the deepest darkest corner of the house. We figured she knew what was out there and she was taking no chances of being out there again. I'd like to think she was there to greet your Patches on the Rainbow Bridge.

My Condolences....

This always brings me comfort.....

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....

Oh! I am so sorry! There's such a feeling of emptiness as you look to his favorite toy, or his dog food plate... All the ways he lit up your lives!
So sorry for your pain!
