After some much needed healing time after losing my baby.i can now share a few thoughts without crying. I have had many people say wis things, heartfelt words but nothing hlps. I wasn't sure how I could find words to be different and have the depth deserved for the loss of your precious and beautiful baby. Our dogs are so more then just pets. More even then some family. They are part of our souls. Their love is unconditional. they feel our heartaches and our stress. The connection is a true gift and the privilege of knowing that is the rare and precious gift of all, the knowing while we still have them. That's the truest gift of love. How blessed are we.

Craig and Margie, So sorry for you lose. Barnum looks so beautiful, proud. Poodles are very smart, so smart they not only get in your heart the wiggle their way right in your soul without you even knowing it. To Barnum: Reach down with your beautiful paw and touch your mommy and daddy's heart. Let them know you are with all your family members. That all of you are whole, happy and healthy and that you are all waiting for the time when you all cross the Rainbow Bridge together. Until then you live in their hearts.

Dear Craig and Margie- with witness and empathy from me to you! I am so glad I was able to stop by Barnum Coffey'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

Craig and Margie, I am sorry for the loss of your sweet angel Barnum Coffee. I can see how much he means to you, and know that the feeling is reciprocated 10 fold. He has nothing but love and gratitude for you for the wonderful life and home you gave him. I hope he meets up with my Murphy who transitioned over a year ago so they can run and play together in the warm sunshine.

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

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

Dear Craig and Margie, I too have suffered the loss of a beloved companion, so I understand how much Barnum means to you. You were so lucky to have so many wonderful years together. Now sweet Barnum 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. 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 Barnum …. My pups and I are sending you lots and lots of extra special loving thoughts, prayers and positive energy for strength, courage and patience until you are all together again. We wish you all the wonderful things that life has to offer. Kindest Regards, Pammie, Bob Barker, Vienna & Little Max

Barnum- Thinking of you today at Rainbow Bridge Craig and Margie - I am so sorry for the loss of your baby - Prayers for you and your family Our babies are always with us whether here on Earth or up in Heaven, always watching over us. Their uncondtional love for us does not stop just because their body does. No more pain or suffering for them - and their love for us is as strong as ever, just as our love for them is. Soon you will all be together again and going over the rainbow together, which is where your lives’ really begin

Craig, Margie: 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---

Craig and Margie- Owning a dog is a metronome to life-losing a companion and your routines all at the same time can feel like you've been thrown into a tailspin and it hurts, it's real! I am so deeply sorry for the loss of your wonderful best friend, Barnum, who asked for very little, yet he just knew how to share his loyalty and unconditional love until the end of his lifetime. Barnum was a gift to you; honor and celebrate a life well lived. I've placed a sparkling water bowl at his resting place in loving memory.
