Carol, I am so very sorry to know about your sweet baby boy Barkley. You set up a lovely memorial in his honor. The stories your wrote about his life with you were touching and shows that he was so much loved and will be missed very much. I know how life is so different without your baby by your side. Sending you thoughts of strength and know that their so support for you here at this site, you are not alone. Take one day at a time, take care of yourself, be respectful of your grief regardless what others may say. Barkley, Your mommy is really hurting and misses you so much. Send her a sign from time to time just to let her know you are watching over her. From reading the story of your life with your mommy, you did some real good work there buddy. When you had to leave her side you took a big piece of her heart with you, let her feel that a big piece of your heart is always with her.

Carol, I am sorry for the loss of your precious angel Barkley. It does not surprise me one bit that he was so protective of you and Brooke because he has so much love and gratitude for giving him a nice, loving home. Now that he has transitioned, he is healthy, happy, and without any pain or discomfort. I hope Barkley meets up with my Murphy so they can run and play together in the warm sunshine. If you would like to visit Murphy's memorial page, here's his address:

Dear Carol, The love between an owner and a dog can only be described by one word, unconditional. Reading your words, it’s so obvious you and Barkley had such a wonderful mutual friendship. Just remember it’s never really “Goodbye”, just “Until we’re together again”. You have my sincerest condolences. Carmen's and Gigi's mom - Alicia

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Barkley. Please find comfort in knowing that Barkley 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. On January 11, 2013, I lost my faithful friend Hannah who was a beautiful blue tick hound dog. On August 2, 2013 another one of my beautiful cats, Sammi, a black and white tabby, went to Rainbows Bridge. April 9, 2014, Maci, my English Bulldog passed over to Rainbows Bridge. Maci and Hannah were best friends. On March 20, 2017 my sweet little calico Gabbi crossed over Rainbow's Bridge. I adopted her about a month after Spooky passed away and Gabbi also lived to be almost 16 years old. On 1/3/18 my little cat Zoe passed away. I am sure that Barkley and my babies have all become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

Dear Carol, I understand this is a sad time for you I too know the heartbreak of losing a beloved friend and constant companion having lost my beloved Bob Barker on August 28, I understand how much you miss Barkley. Just remember that it is never really “Goodbye”, just “Until we’re together again”! And I pray that this thought will give your heart comfort and peace in the days to come when you think of your sweet Barkley… Now Barkley waits for you to sleep at night and dream of him. His love continues to cross the Rainbow bridge and come to you all the time. My pups and I are sending you very – very special loving thoughts, prayers, positive energy, and petitioning the Universe to ease your heart pain and give you peace in the knowledge that you will see your little one again one day and that for now your sweet Barkley is but a dream away… You can visit Bob Barker at:

Barkley I am sorry for your loss. Carol loves you and misses you very much. My Perseus went to Rainbow Bridge when he was 14. There are no more aches or pains. No rain only sunshine. Running and playing all day with the other furbabies. One day we will join them for all eternity at Rainbow Bridge.

For sweet Barkley, I know that during your lifetime you gave Carol much joy. Now I am wishing for you lots and lots of happiness playing in the meadows beyond the Rainbow Bridge. From looking at your photos and reading what Carol wrote for and about you it is obvious that you came from a very warm and loving home. Barkley I have a wonderful playmate for you. His name is Pedro and he is adorable just like you. I know you two will be very good friends. For Carol, I just visited your Barkley's Rainbows Bridge residency and wanted to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious furangel. I am sure if asked, Barkley would have said that every day spent with you was a blessing. Having lost my little dog Pedro I can understand how you must be feeling and how much you must miss Barkley. Wishing you all the very best always, Rosalind (Pedro's Mom).

I am so sorry for your loss of Barkley. My heart goes out to you as I know you are struggling so with the loss of your precious baby. Your world has lost a very special baby, family member and friend, but the heavens have welcomed home a very special soul. Earth’s loss is heaven’s gain. I know you had a special relationship with Barkley that will always be a part of you. I pray that my sweet little girl, Bailey, found Barkley and they have become friends. May the precious love you shared with Barkley continue to warm your heart and I hope you find peace and comfort knowing that your love will bind you together forever. Peace and blessings to you. My precious Bailey left our world December 5th, 2013 and we miss her so. Please visit my Bailey at

Carol: Barkley's smile is so contagious! I can only imagine how difficult this moment in time is for you and I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Your handsome boy helped you through extraordinarily emotional moments in your life and his passing marks the 'end of an era'. May you gather those precious years to bring solace and strength. Imagine, if you will, Barkley sniffing the soft breezes at Rainbow Bridge and letting it ruffle his curls. He jumps easily, he sees the beautiful meadows and has perked up to his restored soul. Reflect, reminisce and celebrate a life well lived. This pull rope I have left is a gift, one that will keep you connected for an eternity as love does not die. Ever. Never let go!

Dear Barkley, you are truly handsome. Please go to the Bridge and send your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the heart of your mommy who misses you so much, and she will send her love right back to you on angels' wings. Dear Carol, your world has lost a very special furperson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed Home a very special soul. Barkley is now your very own angel, watching over and for you, just as Tashi, Katy and BG are watching over us, until you meet again and cross the Bridge together. May his sweet presence continually nuzzle your heart until then, and may you find comfort in knowing that the silver thread of love that binds you heart to heart with Barkley will never be broken. Many blessings and much peace, Clare and Martha...Please visit our Tashi at

Hello, handsome Barkley, welcome to sunny Paradise meadow by Rainbow Bridge. Mommy loves and misses you so...she made you a beautiful place and wrote loving words about you. We asked our Pressy to welcome you and be a playmate to chase colorful rainbows and give you special kitty love headbumps. She'll show you wonders of Paradise meadow and teach you to send love signs on the wind so Mommy feels your loving presence with her and sweet kisses in gentle breezes. You're now a guardian star shining brightly until she comes to cross the Bridge together for all time. We ask she not be so sad but treasure memories of you and remember you're nestled beside your pawprints deep in her heart forever. Play meadow games with other furangels but stop often to smile at Mommy so she feels the warmth of your love surround her and knows you miss her too and are with her. Soar among clouds now on silvery new angel wings to watch over Mommy always, beloved sweet Barkley. Pressy's Grandpa
