We lost our yellow lab on Tuesday and read your guest book on Gator, trying to put into words how to express our feelings on our loss. You did a good job. Dave in Wyoming.

To Gator, I know you are all settled there at the bridge. Running around all the meadows just like when you were a puppy. Take a minute though and touch down with your big paw to your mommy's heart. Let her know you are happy, healthy and whole again. Tell her although you can't be by her side anymore, you know you will never be forgotten. All those wonderful memories you shared together are tucked safe and treasured in your heart forever.

Dear Heather- Thank you for the opportunity to stop by Gator's Rainbow Bridge memorial page and learn about your life together! I can only imagine how much you miss your friend. It was awesome to see the memories that you shared. Even when time has gone by, we still miss our friends, though in time the happier feelings will take over for the grief, in order to keep our pets who have died close by until we are together again. I hope it gives you comfort to know you are thought of! -Megan, with Dexter "Big Essie" and Rinchen in Philadelphia

Heather,,Gator is a beautiful boy...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..

Heather, I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet angel Gator. I feel your pain and completely understand that gaping hole in your heart. Know that Gator is happy and without any pain or discomfort, and has only love for you for the love and care your gave. I hope Gator meets up with my Murphy so they can run and play together in the warm sunshine.

Heather, I’m sorry for your loss. Know that you are not alone. We're here to also remember Gator. 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---

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

I am so sorry for your loss of Gator. 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 Gator that will always be a part of you. I pray that my sweet little girl, Bailey, found Gator and they have become friends. May the precious love you shared with Gator 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 Gator. Please find comfort in knowing that Gator 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 Gator and my babies have all become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan

Hi Heather, I am crying with you, friend. There are no words that can ease the pain you're feeling, and I'm so sorry for that because I know your heart is broken. I love your pictures of your precious Gator. That gentle face...that sweet spirit. I have an aging Golden, and I dread the day she's not beside me. All we can do is allow ourselves to grieve, and let the passage of time help to heal our hearts. You might like to come to the Monday Night Candle-Lighting ceremony here at Rainbow Bridge. It's a blessing to be with people who know how you feel. I will look for you there, and I will light a candle for your Gator. Bless you, Heather.

Gator I am sorry for your loss. Heather 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 Heather, I understand this is a sad time for you I too know the heartbreak of losing a beloved friend and constant I understand how much Gator means to you. You were so lucky to have so many wonderful years together. 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 Gator …. Now Gator 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 Gator is but a dream away…. Kindest Regards, Pammie
