Dear Jo ... I randomly opened your page today and want to tell you how much my grief matches yours. At age 71, I have reluctantly, but lovingly, sent my babies to wait for me on the Rainbow Bridge. Willie, Buddee, Max, Rocky Chewy, and just last week, Ronnie have preceded me to Heaven. I know your pain and recognize your love. We will love them forever. Blessings ... Kathie

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Boen. Please find comfort in knowing that Boen 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 Boen 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 Boen, 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. And may you catch a glimpse of your special sign, just when your heart needs it most.... 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 blessed season.... With best wishes for you and your family this Holiday, Karen (Dusty, DJ & Patches' mom)

My deepest sympathies to you 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 5 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 Boen, 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. Settle cozily into your new sunshine-filled home, sweet baby. 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. 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, dear Boen. Dusty, DJ & Patches mom:

Boen, 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, Leche and Si.I extend my deepest condolences to you for the loss of Boen.I know just how painful it is to have lost your angel, for, I too, lost mine.

your baby looks very happy and is such a beautifull baby. Goodbye hurts so much, we feel your pain. No matter how long they have been gone their love is always with us. Our Punky passed on Feb. 2, 2010 think of your baby with smiles instead of tears and it will feel as their little soul has left you with a Rainbow in your heart. Were very sorry for your loss but as we know,your angle is in heaven right now feeling no pain, your sweet baby is happy and is playing with all the other babies who has left us. In their eyes you saw a loving soul, and in your heart you knew you'd never have a finer friend. Please feel free to go to our Punkys place at Rainbow bridge. I will ask Punky to find your sweet baby so they can run and play together. Just remember, the day your baby left you and the time on earth was through, God then picked your sweet baby up and he said, "your home now, I welcome" you.

Boen - You are an elegant and handsome guy! Send your mom some signs, kisses, from the Rainbow to let her know that you are safe, happy, healthy and will have many friends. Let Jo know that God has appointed you to be her guardian, protector to watch over her until she is called to the Bridge to join you one day. I will tell my Brande to find you and play with you. To Jo - I send my sincere sympathy over the loss of Boen. I too lost my soulmate not long ago, see Brande at - We know that God has promised we will be with our babies again one day. I leave this quote with you, "heaven is the only place where all the dogs and cats you have ever loved will come running to meet you." Author Unknown

Hello, handsome Boen, welcome to the sunny meadow by Rainbow Bridge. Mommy loves and misses you so...she made you a beautiful place and wrote loving words. We asked our Pressy to help Sasha welcome you and be a playmate to chase sunbeams and rainbows and give you special kitty love headbumps. She'll help 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 another 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 happy 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. Soar among clouds with Sasha now on silvery new angel wings to watch over Mommy together always, beloved Boen. Pressy's Grandpa

My heart breaks for you - the sadness you feel just leaps off the page. It sounds trite, but it does get easier. I had to put down my Bear about a month and 1/2 ago - going for something minor that turned into major very quickly. They make a place in our hearts that doesn't ever fill. May the beautiful memories you have bring you comfort at this difficult time. Until you're together again.

Boen, you are so 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. Jo, your world has lost a very special furperson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed home a very special soul. Boen is now your very own angel, watching over and for you, just as BG is watching over us, until you meet again and cross the Bridge together. May his sweet love continually hug your heart until then. Blessings & peace, Clare & Martha....Please visit our BG at
