Dear Maxine, Just a note to let you know my heart goes out to you in your recent loss of Gretchen. I've been a dog owner/lover most of my life, so I know the deep heartache we feel when we lose one so precious to us. I do hope, with time, the sadness will ease and in its place will be some joyful memories of Gretchen that will make you smile or laugh again when you think of her. God Bless, Dianna

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

For sweet Gretchen, I know that during your lifetime you gave Maxine much joy. Now I am wishing for you lots and lots of happiness playing in the meadows beyond the Rainbow Bridge. From looking at your photo and reading what Maxine wrote for and about you it is obvious that you came from a very warm and loving home. Gretchen, I have another wonderful playmate for you. His name is Pedro and he is adorable just like you. I know you two will be very good friends. For Maxine, I just visited your Gretchen's Rainbows Bridge residency and wanted to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious Fur Angel. I am sure if asked, Gretchen would have said that every day spent with you was a blessing. Having lost my little dog Pedro I can understand how you must be feeling and how much you must miss Gretchen. Wishing you all the very best always, Rosalind (Pedro's Mom).

Hello, pretty Gretchen, welcome to sunny Paradise 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 welcome you and be a playmate to chase colorful rainbows and give you special kitty love headbumps. She'll 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 a guardian star shining brightly until she comes for you one day 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 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 and are with her. Soar among clouds now on silvery new angel wings to watch over Mommy always, beloved sweet Gretchen. Pressy's Grandpa

Dear Gretchen, you are truly beautiful. Please go to the Bridge and send your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the heart of your mom who misses you so much, and she will send her love right back to you on angels' wings. Dear Maxine, your world has lost a very special furperson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed Home a very special soul. Gretchen is now your very own angel, watching over and for you, just as Callie, Tashi, Katy and BG are watching over us, until you meet again and cross the Bridge together. May her sweet presence continually nuzzle your heart until then, and may you find comfort in knowing that the silver thread of love that binds you heart to heart with Gretchen will never be broken. Many blessings and much peace, Clare and Martha...Please visit our Callie at
