Hello Barclay What a good looking guy you are. I know that you are happy at the bridge with everyone. Your mom & dad miss you so much. Please send them a kiss on the spring breeze. If you run into a little cat named Finnbar give him a kiss for me. I'm a little lost without him.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Barclay. Please find comfort in knowing that Barclay is now at Rainbows Bridge and making lots of friends. Saying goodbye is never easy. I also lost my precious cat Spooky July 30th 2001 after 16 wonderful years with her. I am sure that Barclay and Spooky have become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

"God gave us our memories so that we might have Roses in December." a quote by J.M. Barrie. May the memories of your blessed furangel Barclay, the ones that can't help but bring a smile to your face and a chuckle to your heart as you remember the way your baby's tender love touched your life, be the ones that surround you this Holiday Season. My prayer for each of us this Christmas season, is that each of our babies wrap up a special little sign for each one of us back here, and send it to us this Holiday season. May you catch a glimpse of your special sign, just when your heart needs it most.... And may each love-filled memory you have of your beloved furbaby bring to your heart the very warmth and sunshine of the Rainbow itself. That's just one "gift" your fur-angel would want for you this year ... With best wishes for you and your family this Holiday Season, Karen (Dusty, DJ & Patches' mom)

Barclay was a beautiful sheltie! My furbaby Lily was also a brown and white sheltie, and she was my angel. I'm sure they are playing together right now.

I am very sorry for the loss of your beautiful Barclay. Take consolation that he is now in heaven with my two cockers and they are all running and playing together like they did when they were puppies. I loved the story of Barclay, you were the best pet parents ever!! It is never easy, to let them go, the pets who have shared our lives, but there is a time when we must give them their dignity back. Bless you for making a difference in Barclay's life. I am asking GOD to surround your family with his loving arms and comfort you, today and always. Be assured you will see your beloved Barclay again when HE calls you to heaven. He is in the arms of the angels now, not to worry, Pat W., Irmo, SC

Hello Barclay the Practically Perfect Puppy. What a wonderful life you had with your mommy and daddy and the fond memories they have of you. All gave unconditional love to the other which will never be forgotten. You were truly the Visa Dog as daddy described. You were loving and loyal til the end. Watch over mommy and daddy as their special angel until you meet again. I have asked my angel Stuart to seek you out and be your friend and I hope the two of you will join with new friends and be happy and run free at Rainbows Bridge. Please visit his residency at

Welcome to the bridge are you today? You are going to make many friends at the bridge & there's so much for you to do. You get to play ball & take long naps in the sun. Isn't that great? Your story brought tears to my eyes. SO beautifully written. And yes, we do all give out at some point in time. When it's time for our furry babies to leave, we have to take their pain & place it in our hearts so they won't hurt anymore. Make sure you send your mommie & daddy lots of smooches so they know you are OK. To Richard & Carrie...we are sorry for your loss. Hold your memories close to your heart until you see your precious Barclay again.

My deepest sympathies to you and your family on your loss. I do know what it is like to lose a loved one, whether Human or one of our special, furry babies. Having lost quite a few of my own and doing dog rescue, it is never easy. From my house of 8 furr babies, to yours, we wish you the best. If you ever need to write please do so. I will be there for you. They never leave us, we just don't see them any more. Their spirit lives on.

To precious Barclay, a new angel at the Rainbow... I can just see you now with your feather-soft guardian angel wings, watching over your family back here. And I just know by now you've had a chance to look around for the coziest & softest places to take your sunshine filled Rainbow-colored afternoon naps, haven't you... And each time you look up and see that wondrously magical Rainbow, may you know that all those who loved you back here have actually helped make it shine a little brighter for you, Barclay. How? With their tears, sweet baby. Each love-drop filled tear here has mixed with the sunshine there at your new home, and your Rainbow shines even brighter for you now..... An old Indian proverb: "The Soul would have no Rainbow if the Eyes had No Tears" says it best... You now find rest in the Arms of God's very own Angels...what more could your family have ever wished for you? What more could have ever been wished... Rest well, sweet Barclay. Rest well with the angels.

Dear Richard & Carrie, As I was reading your tribute to Barclay, I found myself laughing as well as crying. You can tell how special of a dog he was. I lost my Buddy last week very suddenly, and I too had to make the hardest decision of my life. On one of Buddy's last nights with us, he jumped up on the bed with me as he always did. This was despite his inability to walk or eat. It was almost as if he knew. It was that last night that I am so thankful for. I hope that your family is able to find peace and comfort during this difficult time knowing that Barclay is patiently waiting for you to join him someday. My thoguths and prayers are with your family.

Barclay, What a precious baby you were, always so loyal and loving. You taught and gave your family so much that they now know the true meaning of unconditional love. They long for the day to be able to hold you and to look into your eyes again. I know just how grateful you are for all of love and care in which they provided you. They miss you baby, so very much. I know that you don't want them to be sad for too long, but instead, be happy For you are happy, content at peace and have been surrounded by so many others who also love and adore you, including my Shayna Girl and Leche. I extend my deepest condolences to you for the loss of Barclay. I know just how painful it is to have lost your angel, for, I too, lost mine.Please vist my Shayna Girl at: and Leche at My thoughts and prayers are with you.Until we are with our babies again.Shayna and Leche's mommy, Lisa
