Welcome to Colby's Rainbow Bridge Memorial Residency
Memories of Colby
June 20th, 2016|
I still remember the day I saw your for the first time, February 13th 2003. You were at a small town dog rescue and you sat there so calm and never barked once like all the dogs around you even though you were only 8 months old. You looked at me with those big brown eyes telling me to take you home. I went home and was back there the next morning when it opened and you were coming home! We lived in Ontario and moved around until finally in 2009 we moved back to Alberta and my home town. You were spoiled rotten by everyone who saw you. Then you and I moved to the farm with your wonderful Dad, Randy in March 2011! He was taken over by your charm immediately just like all the others! You were free to run and be a dog on the farm for the last 5 years of your life. You and your sister Utah were free and had the best life ever! You became sick in June 2013 where you were diagnosed with throat cancer. You fought for 3 years and showed that you were a strong loyal friend. Then on June 16th 2016, a short 2 days after your 14th birthday, you were taken over the Rainbow Bridge with Mommy and Daddy beside you holding you and telling you how much we love you! That was the hardest day and you will never be forgotten. Daddy and I wished that you could live forever but we know you can't. You will be forever here at home just like your sister Utah is as we are having you cremated so you can sit near your sister and Grandpa Omer who went before you. I wish that things could have been different and you were still here. We love you very much Colby! xoxoxoxoxo

Colby I miss you very much each and every day! I go outside and keep thinking you will be right behind me trying to help in the yard or just chase and play with the cats! Daddy is still sad whenever we talk about you, we are both still having trouble not having you here. We went camping on the August long weekend and it just wasn't the same without you there sleeping next to us and sitting by the campfire enjoying the night air and stars. We love you buddy but know that you are over the Rainbow Bridge with Utah, Grandpa and all the others that passed before you. God Bless you my boy and know you are here with us forever! Mommy and Daddy! xoxoxoxoxo

Colby Mommy and Daddy are missing you very much right now. Today is the 3rd anniversary of the passing of your sister Utah. The house is empty here without you our best puppy friend. We have no presents to buy for you, no special desserts to make, and no dinner to cook you after 14 years. I dropped some cheese on the floor today and almost said "Colby come get a treat!", but then I remembered you are no longer physically here with us. We love you our boy and we know that you and your sister are now happy running around the Rainbow Bridge greeting others and showing them around. Please give Grandpa a big lick from Mommy as I miss you all. This is a tough year losing you and Grandpa but knowing that you are now happy and free makes our hearts sing. Merry Christmas honey, Mommy and Daddy miss you dearly 😭💖😭💖😭💖

Colby Mommy and Daddy can't believe that tomorrow is 1 year since you left us to be with all your past friends and family. We miss you each and every day still and can't look at a picture of you without remembering the best times and having tears come to our eyes. We see a dog on TV that does something that reminds us of you and we are blubbering again! (yes Daddy too!) There are still days when I accidentally drop something on the floor when I am cooking and catch myself before I call you to come and get it 😭 You will never, ever be forgotten and truly are the last of the great ones to enter our lives. I know you would want us to move on and love another friend, but we just can't do it. I hope that you and Utah are playing and running around like you used to here on Earth and that Grandpa Omer is there throwing the ball for you and giving you all the pats and rubs that we used to.
We love you baby boy, now and forever! It still hurts! Mommy and Daddy 😭💖😭💖😭💖
