Hi again Barley. I meant to leave a tennis ball for you (not the other ball). I think you like all kinds of toys, so no matter. I visited Juju's memorial and then read your story again too. I'm not a religious person either (and often avoid those types). However, I do believe in God and that he created you and Juju and Biff and all creatures. I believe you are in heaven and waiting for us. I crave the spirit of animals around me as your family does, because animals have true love (not fake). Animals are different from 'man', who is not always true in nature. I enjoyed reading both your and Juju's stories. You are a lucky (and very good-looking) dog and clearly brought much joy and love to your family. God bless you, Barley, and wait for us all to get there. We all miss our little God-given babies!

Hi Barley! What a lovely dog you are. I enjoyed reading your memorial and looking at pictures of you. It looks like you brought your family much joy and love. I lost Biff (bulldog) 3 months ago, and to keep from being so sad, I look at other memorials and see who Biff's playmates are at Rainbow. I miss Biff as much as your family misses you, Barley. God bless, and y'all have fun at Rainbow! We'll be along when our time is up here.

Dear Waqas, Faraz, Farooq and Parveen- with witness and empathy from me to you! I am so glad I was able to stop by Barley Saleemi's Rainbow Bridge memorial page. It's awesome to see what you had to share about your life together. It's the hardest thing when our pets die, though they do leave us with a lot of great memories that come to us in time. Hoping that it helps you to know that you are thought of! -Megan, with Dexter "Big Essie" and Rinchen in Philadelphia

I am so sorry for your loss and how sudden and short your Barley's time with your family was. Do know that you gave your Barley his happy ending in life. You loved him, showed him what true love is and he left knowing that he was wanted and loved. Barley found your family, stayed with you a short time so that you could rescue his friend Cooper. Cooper is now finding out how life is suppose to be. Your family has given so much love to two dogs that needed to be rescued, even though your plan was to rescue one. Barley is now at peace and whole again. He will live forever in your hearts and keep enriching your lives with his memories.

Waqas/Farooq/Parveen..Barley is a beautiful boy with a great smile and very lucky to have you as his forever family,no matter how short of a time it was...a beautiful tribute for a great friend.It is never easy to lose a furry young or old and I have lost both.For whatever reason they are always taken from us too soon while leaving their forever pawprints within us and labs leave them like no other. He is now healthy and playing with Oreo,Ralph and Eva while waiting for us to join them on the Bridge, they are gone from our site but never forgotten. I can send you my babies site if you wish to visit..take care..

Waqas, Faraz, Farooq, Parveen: I’m sorry for your loss. Know that you are not alone. I, too, have lost a beloved pet; everyone in this website have. We feel the pain that you feel; we’ve suffered the loneliness that you suffer, at not having our beloved pet by our side anymore. But we all feel the same relief---that where our beloved pets are now, they’re safe, and happy, and content, whatever afflicted them in this life is gone. And we all share the same hope---one day, we will be together again with our beloved ones. My baby, a female Beagle named River, left for Rainbow Bridge on March 21, 2017; here she is now---

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Barley. Please find comfort in knowing that Barley 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. I am sure that Barley and my babies have all become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

To the family of Barley, I am sorry for the loss of your sweet angel. He is so handsome and you're right, he probably did have a beauty secret or two that he never shared about his pretty golden paws. I'm also excited and impressed at his ability to help the Cowboys lose! As an Eagles fan, I am not a fan of theirs at all. lol. Barley is now without any pain or discomfort. He has only love and gratitude for you for the wonderful life and home you gave him. It was his time to transition over. Know that he will visit you in his spirit form. I hope Barley meets up with my Murphy so they can run and play together in the warm sunshine. ♥

Barley Saleemi I am sorry for your loss. Your family 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.

Dear Waqas, Faraz, Farooq and Parveen, your story about Barley touched my heart. I will never forget him or the love you have for him. I understand this is a sad time for you I too know the heartbreak of losing a beloved friend and constant companion, so I understand how much Barley means to you. 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 Barley. Now Barley 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 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 Barley is but a dream away...

I am so sorry for your loss of Barley. 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 Barley that will always be a part of you. I pray that my sweet little girl, Bailey, found Barley and they have become friends. May the precious love you shared with Barley 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

Dear Barley Saleemi, you are truly handsome. Please go to the Bridge and send your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the hearts of your family who miss you so much, and they will send their love right back to you on angels' wings. Dear Waqas, Faraz, Farooq and Parveen, your world has lost a very special furperson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed Home a very special soul. Barley, along with Juju, 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 their sweet presence nuzzle your hearts until then, and may you find comfort in knowing that the silver thread of love that binds you heart to heart with Barley and Juju will never be broken. Many blessings and much peace, Clare and Martha...Please visit our Tashi at

For Waqas, Faraz, Farooq and Parveen, I just visited your Barley's Rainbows Bridge residency and wanted to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious furangel. It seems not so long ago that I visited your Juju's residency. Looking at all Barley's photos and reading what you wrote for and about him I can see that Barley lived a wonderful life with his loving family. Sending you all my best wishes, Rosalind (Pedro's Mom).
