Ron and Cindy- It seemed like Champ had a mission in life and it was to embrace your love and shelter up until his final days. How fortunate you were to have received the gifts in which he was destined to share. Gone but never forgotten. The pot of Forget-Me-Nots is at the entrance to Rainbow Bridge for you and in his memory.

After visiting Cookie, I had to stop by and see Champ. How someone could drop you off when you were 12, is beyond my comprehension. But, because they did, you found a wonderful loving home with Ron and Cindy. I'm sure those were the best years of your life. Ron and Cindy, I know it's been awhile since Champ left you, but your loss is still very real, and I am so very sorry. But you did give Champ a loving home for the last years of his life. My sympathies

Hello Ron & Cindy, I am so sorry for the lost of your beautiful Champ. King Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes: "To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven…a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance…" The Zohar, the classic work of Kabbalah, describes the inner psyche of man as "crying being on one side of the heart and laughing on the other side of the heart." Yet, there is an even deeper understanding, we will learn to be joyous and broken hearted at the same time. Our fur babies where so beautiful and a gift of true joy & love, how can we not be happy when we reflect on their memory and begin to celebrate their life. One day we will be together again with our beautiful companions; I lost my Zander & Zianna & have attached their link if you care to visit. With Love & Sympathy Diane.

I'm sorry for the loss of your beloved Champ.

They will not go quietly, the pets who've shared our lives. In subtle ways they let us know their spirit still survives. Old habits still can make us think we hear them at the door Or step back when we drop a tasty morsel on the floor. Our feet still go around the place the food dish use to be, And, sometimes, coming home at night, we miss them terribly. And although time may bring new friends and a new food dish to fill, That one place in our hearts belongs to them.... and always will. - Author unknown. I am so sorry for your loss but I do hope that this poem offers you some comfort. Blessings………………….. Joyce

Ron/Cindy..a great tribute to a beautiful boy who gave you all the memories he could in the time he was with you.It is hard to lose a furry young or old(short time or long) and I have had all. He was very lucky he had you as his forever family for the time he had. But no matter what or for whatever reason they are always taken from us too soon leaving their forever pawprints within us.Be sure to know Champ is happy,healthy and playing with Oreo,Ralph,Eva and friends while waiting for us to join them on the Bridge. I can send you my babies sites if you wish to visit..take care..

Ron and Cindy, so sorry for your loss. Saying goodbye is never easy.....those little furry companions definitely steal our hearts and souls. They are so precious and are truly one of God's greatest gifts. Take comfort in that their love for us goes on as our love for them does for eternity. I am sure that the memories of this precious member will be with you always. We also lost our adorable little pug, Nikki Mae, who was the light of our lives for more than 14 wonderful years. We are sure that beautiful Champ and Nikki Mae have become good friends and are now having so much fun playing and running again. Please visit our Nikki Mae at:

Dear Ron and Cindy, what a wonderful blessing that precious Champ came into your hearts and home and found so much love! I have tears in my eyes as I write. Your words and memories of Champ are a beautiful tribute to such a wonderful little guy. It breaks our hearts when our furbabies grow old and leave us for the rainbow meadow but we must always know that they go to a happy place where they are young and well again. My kitties, Inky and Bubba Lou, were there to welcome Champ and I am sure my kitties have fallen in love with your sweet angel baby. On some glorious day in the future, when we cross the rainbow bridge and our babies come running to greet us, we will be with them forever more. Blessings of healing and peace, dear friends. And blessings to all the little furbabies who now share your heart and home. Please know that I understand and care. Jane

My Sidney was on the bridge to welcome Champ to his new home. They are chasing sunbeams and telling "tails" of their great lives. I have asked them to send you a rainbow from heaven above, a upside down smile. When you miss Champ the most listen to your heart, his love and paw print are there.

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

Dear Ron and Cindy. Thank you for giving champ a family your love and care your warmth and humor. It sounds as if you recognized his gifts. I too have the honor of caring for two old dalmatian rescues and know the joy and love they radiate. I can picture champs happy food dance. Your care of champ cancels some of the sadness in our world. His love is forever yours and he departed for the bridge in your love. It is so sad to let them go. They fill such a large place in the fa ric of our daily lives. The three of you are in my heart hopes and prayers. Best jule

Champ-your story broke my heart, little guy..It tears me up when people treat their babies that way. I am very glad that some wonderful people, Ron and Cindy, came into your life. I am sure they showed you what it is like to have life and love, and I am sure you showed it right back! I did have to chuckle because your mom misses your poop (it's ok, I made the statement that I miss cleaning my Dixie-Kitty's litter box..she just passed away a week and a half might have seen her sitting in a sunny spot in the meadow..)I am sorry that you have had so much happen in your life, but I am glad that you were able to experience love with Ron and Cindy, as all furbabies should have that..I hope that you will show them love from the Bridge every now and then, it helps us that are left behind. Until you are all reunited at the Bridge one day, Blessed Be!

Champ, you are so handsome! Please go to the Bridge and send your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the hearts of your mommy and daddy who miss you so much, and they will send their love right back to you on angels' wings. Ron and Cindy, your world has lost a very special furperson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed home a very special soul. Champ, along with Sage and PJ, is now your very own angel, watching over and for you, just as Katy and BG are watching over us, until you meet again and cross the Bridge together. May their sweet love continually hug your hearts until then. Blessings and peace, Clare and Martha....Please visit our Katy at

For a very special dog "Champ", I know that the time you spent with Ron and Cindy you gave them much joy. Now I am wishing you lots and lots of happiness at Rainbows Bridge. From looking at your photo and reading what your family wrote for and about you I can see why they love you and miss you so much. Please meet my Pedro. He is adorable just like you and I am sure you two will be very good friends. For Ron and Cindy, From what you wrote for Champ I can see that you two are very special people. Champ was lucky to have you as his family. All the best to you always, Rosalind (Pedro's mom).

Champ - You are a handsome guy! I like that black eye! You have left your family many endearing memories! Send your family some signs, kisses from the Rainbow to let them know that you are safe, happy, healthy and will have many friends. Let Ron and Cindy know that you have met up with Sage and PJ, and that God has appointed all of you to be their guardian, protectors to watch over them until they are called to join you at the Bridge. To Ron and Cindy - I send my heartfelt sympathy to you over the loss of Champ. I too lost my soulmate not long ago, see Brande at - We know that God has promised we will be with our babies again. 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
