For you my angel, you have been gone more than a year, seems like a life time since you left us and yet just yesterday. Taken so suddenly and so quickly, there was not enough time to say goodbye, for that I am truly sorry, I would give my world to hold you in my arms one more time. But now we know that you are never far from us and always in our hearts and in our dreams and we thank you for all the wonderful little things you have sent us since you left, like the goldfinches and the beautiful rainbows, the bluebells in your woods and this summer the baby blackbirds in the garden. You walk with us everyday, everywhere we go and surround us with your love in everything that is good in our lives. You will never be forgotten beautiful lady, our golden girl. You brightened up our lives for so many wonderful years. Thank you for choosing to spend all those years with us and for all your unconditional love, angel. Our hearts will never completely mend you took a piece of them with you when you went but you left a piece of you behind for each of us, wonderful love and happy memories. Now you are at the end of the rainbow, young and whole again, free from the pain you suffered at the end, you walk with angels and run with the wind and I hope you are happy there. Play, eat and sleep, all the things you loved to do with us, I know you have many friends there and the days are filled with sunshine, just the way you liked them, to sunbathe in the warmth on the green grass. You were the best darling girl, the sunshine in our days and the bright stars in our nights we will love you forever. We will see you again when our own rainbow time comes, until then wait for us, be happy and free. We long for the cuddles and the wonderful kisses raining down on us and that cheeky waggy tail, we were never quite sure whether the dog was wagging the tail or the tail was wagging the dog, we will see it all again one day. Bye for now my faithful friend, my shadow, my beautiful girl, my angel gone to Heaven. Your love is a flame that will burn in our hearts forever. Love you Bonsey girl. xx|
I wrote this for you in memory of your 1st year at Rainbows Bridge and a whole year without you.....
God sent me an Angel
I gave her a name
My best friend and soul mate
We walked through the woods
On visits to the country
Her love was pure and wondrous
Then one day just about a year ago
It broke my heart to let her go
The rain came down the day she died
Now when I think of Harley Bones
Her love lives on within my heart
Sweet dreams my Angel
My love for you
The days when I feel
Until that day comes
We will never forget you, sweet girl, but we will always miss you and wonder why. Rest peacefully my Angel, wrapped in the arms of love, until we meet again. I can't say goodbye, so instead I'll say Adieu, I love you Bonesey girl. I catch your kisses in the raindrops and your smile in the sunshine. Thank you for ALL your love. Mama xxx
There is no love without some pain
Love you always and forever, my Bonesey girl. Moma xxx
Another lonely day without you and now Zak is getting older each day, it will not be long now for his journey to end and you will see him again, together again as it was all those years ago when you came to join our family. You are in my thoughts every day angel, never far from me in everything that surrounds me that is good. I miss you sweet girl and long to hold you again, until then sleep peacefully wrapped in the arms of angels and fly free with your new wings, soar little lady, soar up to Heaven and wait for me there. Love you angel girl, always. Moma xx
Another day without you, tomorrow is my birthday, will you look in on me, I hope so sweet girl. I bought you some flowers and a bone today, enjoy them and have fun at the bridge, sleeping in the warm sunshine and drinking from the cool streams, flex your wings and fly a little, fly down to earth to say hello - I will not see you but I will know that you are there, a shadow, just out of the corner of my eye, just enough for me to know that you have come. I still love you so much my sweet girl and miss you more with every new day. May you guide me on my way and be with me always, until we meet again one day........I love you more than words can ever say.
The angels may have our tomorrows but I still have all our yesterdays.
Bye Harley Bones.....beautiful angel.
Hello my beautiful little lady, I hope you are happy and enjoying life at the bridge with all your new and wonderful friends there.
It is nearly Christmas Day, my second one without you and I still miss you so much. I would give my world to hold you in my arms one more time and tell you how much I love and miss you, but you know that anyway don't you?
I think of you every day and light a candle for you. The light dances on the walls and reminds me of you, of that happy and bouncy young girl who chose us for her forever family all those years ago. Your love and zest for life remains in my memories, always running around and snuffling in the bushes on our walks, so happy to be out with me, always running back to make sure I was still there with you. Walks aren't quite the same now, you aren't there bringing up the rear or walking gently alongside me. Sometimes I look back, even now, in the hope that I will catch a glimpse of my little lady trotting up behind to catch up, I don't see you but somehow in my heart I know you are with me and it keeps me going along the way.
Angel girl will you come see me this Christmas, will you fly down and say hello. How you loved your Christmas dinner, turkey and all the trimmings, I'll save you some shall I? You are the brightest star in my universe sweet girl, shine for me always and please know that I will love you forever - and then some.
Happy Christmas sweet, sweet angel, may you be blessed with love and tender kisses and all the treats and turkey dinners you could hope for and sleep peacefully, wrapped in the arms of the angels and with love.
We will never forget you and love you always, my darling girl. Beautiful memories were your legacy - thank you for being ours, for a little while.
Love you Harley Bones
Oh angel, you have an old friend at the bridge with you today, your special Zak has found his wings and has come to be with you at Rainbow Bridge. Our hearts are broken all over again and the tears flow like a waterfall raging in the winter storms. Heartache and emptiness is our companion now and an old friend has been lost in a February song.
He was so very tired Harl, so lost in his own world of late and he has asked us to send him on his way to you, to be forever young and new, to find his wings. I hope he has, and has flown up to Heaven where the gates were opened wide to let him in. We miss you both now so very much, the good times, the special times together are now just a memory and our hearts are filled with sorrow and grief for you both.
Will you care for him now, will you look out for him and love him as we have and do, show him all the places to go and all the best friends you have made there since you left us 20 months ago? The hours have become days and the days weeks, then months and soon it will be 2 whole years without you my angel girl.
We love you sweethearts, always and forever. Rainbows are a pleasure to see and the sweet fragrance of springtime will soon come to bloom. Smiles will replace the tears one day ................ Until then, memories of our forever angels will lives in our hearts, sleep in peace babies, until we meet again one day.
Love always, Mom and Dad xxx
Hello my darlings,
Hello my darling girl,
There is never a day that I do not think of you and wonder where you are, are you happy, are you free and are you still mine? Of course, I will never know the answer to all of those questions but I do know that I feel your love shining through today and every day, you are and always will be my beautiful girl my own angel dog and my true love.
You taught me so many things and I will always try to honour those things and be a good person, thank you for your unconditional love.........thank you for being you and for being mine.
See you again one day sweetheart, until then.............memories are golden, love is silver, the threads of silver and gold are forever entwined around my heart.
Hello my angel girl,
3 years today.
Hello my angel girl. How much I miss you today and every day of my life. Our time together was cut short and you left so quickly and as I have said many times before, I was not there, I should have come back to the surgery to be with you, whether or not you would have known I was there. I wish with all my heart I could change that now, I wish that you had not had to go in pain and alone and I wish that you had not suffered. My heart aches to hold you today and every day and I miss your smile. You were such a happy girl, there were no signs of your pain, you hid it well. Sweet girl one day we will meet again and there will be no more goodbyes. I will love you until the end of time angel lady, you will never suffer or be in pain again. I wish you peaceful sleep under the stars little lady, may your golden heart be filled with joy and peace .........until we meet again one day. I will love you always and forever. Love mama xx

June 15th 2010 ~ 5 Years today, since I held you in my arms one last time
No More Tears

15th June 2011
We have a new little one with us now, his name is Herbie, he comes to us in memory of your old friend Kip.......our Golden Boy, who runs with you now at the bridge. Look down on us darling and know that as we go from day to day living what remains of our earthly lives we cherish your memories most of all. We will love Herbie as we love you and care for him as we did for you ~ he reminds us of the beautiful life we shared and the wonderful life we had together with you, and he makes us smile again, just like we did when you came to us all those long years ago in 1994.
Run free darling girl, knowing that when we meet again it will be forever......always yours, your loving Moma x
I can't think where those years have gone to but I can remember that day like it was yesterday. Gone so quickly, no time to say goodbye and in pain..........so many regrets and things left unsaid and undone. My heart aches to hold you again and to see you renewed and beautiful once more, and one day I will. :)
Sweet dreams my darling girl, I will never forget you and the love you gave me to hold forever in my heart. We made so many beautiful memories, how could I ever forget..... ♥ You are, and always will be the love of my life, my special girl ~ thank you for everything you did, everything you were and for sharing my life for 11 wonderful years. I love you with all my heart and soul little angel ♥
I was blessed with the best, nothing can ever take that away from me. Heaven is a brighter place for your presence and your star shines above the brightest of them all.
Love from your mommy ♥ xxx
Hello my lovely lady, my beautiful angel girl......8 long years ago today, you found your wings and learned how to fly. My heart will never completely mend and you will always have that piece of my heart you took with you on that sad day. I miss you still each and every day and I know that it how it will be now until we meet again as I continue on my own journey and come to the bridge to be with all of you, my little angel family. I know you are free from your pain and that you are a young, happy and healthy Staffy once more, my darling girl my little Bonesy.
So sweetheart, run with the wind, fly high and free over that rainbow and visit me in my dreams, for I long to see and be with you again darling. Look after my boys Zak and Kipper and tell them I miss them too, very much.
God bless you my little lady, shine for me in the night sky and I will blow you those kisses as I always do each and every night. Sweet dreams baby, until we walk together again............I hold you and your love in my heart, for all time.
See you soon beautiful girl.
Today marks Harley's 9th Rainbow Bridge day.
So my darling girl, here we are once more another year has passed and still my heart aches to see you and to hold you again in my arms. The sorrow has eased over time but I still miss you so very much and I will love you forever and a day my beautiful lady. I have the golden memories we made together and I have your love for always and for now, that has to be enough ~ but I don't have you my Angel. You have many friends at the Rainbow Bridge, old and new and I hope that you are happy playing and lazing in the sun with them all, I remember how much you loved to lay in the sunshine with your brother Kip, I miss those days being with you all in the garden in the summer.
I hope you have found peace now that you have forgotten the pain you went through before you left us and that you are a young girl again so beautiful and fresh like the one I saw in my dream of you. I hope that when we meet once more it will seem like yesterday for us both and that we will all be together again into eternity and beyond. I love you with all my heart, always and forever my darling. Sweet dreams little Angel, fly high and run free and tell Bella, Zak and Kip that it won't be long before we are all together again. I long for that day sweetheart.
Be free little lady, and remember how much you are loved and cherished every day here on earth by those who knew and loved you best. Not one day shall pass that I will not think of you all and love you all forever.
Shine for me in the evening sky as you always do.....I saw your star trailing across the Heavens and I knew it was you dusting me with Angel dust from Heaven ~ I hold you in my heart, until we meet again.
All my love ~ Mommy xxx
Today marks Harley's 10th Rainbow Bridge day ........ my special Angel ~ gone from my life but never from my heart.
And so, my beautiful Bonesy girl ~ we are here your 10 year anniversary at Rainbow Bridge. I never imagined that this day would come, in all these years I have never forgotten you for one single minute I have never stopped loving and missing you for one single second and I never will ~ that much I can promise and do for you.
You were the light of my life, my soulmate, my heart dog and my world for 11 wonderful fun filled years. You came to us in 1994 from Bellmead Kennels in Old Windsor, an annex of Battersea Dogs Home, where you brother our beautiful Zak came from 18 months before we found you. I had wanted a Staffy for a long time and as company for Zak you came along and made our lives so complete. You never played with toys and you only ever barked once in all the years we had you, when you came face to face with a hedgehog for the first time. We laughed at your funny squeaky bark and made a big fuss of you for being brave. You loved your walks in the woods among the bluebells and sunning yourself at the end of the drive with your other brother Kip who came along a few years after you did and made 3 lovely dogs. You loved your food and gobbled it all up really fast no matter how hard we tried to slow you down You had a good heart, you were never vicious, you never fought with other dogs although you did stand up to them. You followed me everywhere, always behind me always with me my precious girl. You were just the best Staffy ever, my best girl, my beautiful Beanie lady ~ I called you that because you reminded me of coffee beans in colour ...... your silken fur your velvet head and your old leather ears, which was because you laid in the sun all the time, you lost the fur on them. I miss all those things so very much and I know that one day we will be together again and we will walk over the bridge and find eternal rest and peace ~ I long for that day so much.
I have your memories and your love in me, in my heart and I hold you there for eternity. I remember with pride and love your Staffy smile and the joy you had for life and I remember that at the end you knew it was goodbye as I walked away from the clinic, as you stood there with the vet lady and it was there in your eyes "Goodbye mom, I love you and I will miss you, thank you for loving me so long and so well and thank you for being so brave and bringing me here ~ yes I am in pain but that will soon be over and I although I will leave you I give you my heart and my love to keep forever ....... because ~ it was Heaven here with you"
There is no more I can say in mortal words my darling girl, all I have inside me are feelings so beautiful so wonderful and beyond anything I can write down here ........ a love more beautiful and more powerful than any human love can ever be. I know you are at peace, your broken body is gone and your soul is free. Your spirit soars across the heavens and you shine in every star and in the morning sun. I see you in every flower that blooms, in every butterfly that passes by and in every bird that sings to me. I see you in the colours of the rainbow and feel you in every rain drop and every ray of sunshine. You are waiting for me in a place more beautiful than I can ever hope to imagine and when next we meet I will wrap my loving arms around you and never have to let go again or say goodbye. You were my world, my life and you will always be ....... my Harley, my beautiful Angel girl.
Thank you for being you and for teaching me how to love, how to live and how to let go ............ until we meet again ~ my heart is yours ~ I love you so.
All my love ~ always and forever Mommy xxx
Just stopped by to renew your residency baby girl and to say hello beautiful Angel. Tomorrow Sam is going to the vets for a dental and I wanted to ask you to watch over him for me please. And, if it be that his path should lead him Home to you then walk with him to the gates and tell him not to be afraid and that although mom and dads hearts will break we will love him with all our hearts forever, he will always be our Special Sam. Thank you darling girl, I am missing you so much right now and your brothers and sister ..... I long to hold you in my arms and tell you that I am sorry I didn't come to be with you at the end that I should have and that my heart will ache and grieve for you always because I didn't say goodbye and tell you how much I loved you. I know you have forgiven me, that you would say there is nothing to forgive but there is ~ I cannot forgive myself only when we are together again will I finally find Peace. Until then I hold you and our beautiful memories in my heart always and forever .... you are and always will be my darling Harley Bones ..... sweet dreams little Angel until I hold you once more in loving arms. Mommy Xxxx
All the years that have passed by so quickly since you left that cold rainy morning I have never forgotten about you nor have I ever stopped loving you my sweet Bonesy girl. I will love and miss you forever nothing can change that and I will always long to hold you again in my loving arms and tell you all the things I need you to know even if you already know them. This year has been a very hard one and since I last wrote to you when our beautiful Sam was going to have his dental and I was so worried that he wouldn't make it through it has become dreadful .... Sam came to be with you at Rainbow Bridge one week ago on the 7th June and our hearts are so broken baby girl, so broken. All the memories of all your losses came flooding back and the hurt and sorrow is so intense I can hardly breathe. I look and listen for him every day as I did for you but there is only emptiness and silence as it was for you. We had such a bond of love that was and still is wrapped around our hearts so tightly that it was cut with a jagged knife when he died, like it was with you. You were such a brave girl never showing your pain and Sam was the same ....... please look after him now and play with him, teach him all about being an Angel and show him how to fly. I saw a small rainbow today, just the top of one and very faint but we know that is was you showing him how to make his first Rainbow and it was absolutely beautiful ..... we are so very proud of you both, of all of you.
Remember my darling that you are in our hearts as we are in yours and that our love can never die as yours never can. We feel it in our hearts today strong, faithful and true as the little dog you were and are. Go play now my darling, be free ~ fly high and over the stars and show us how beautiful you are, all of you are.
Until we meet again ~ where the sky meets the sea on the distant horizon where you will come running back to me. For this much I know ..... how could we forget a little dog who gave us so much to remember. Beautiful girl I will always be your mommy xxxx
I dedicate this beautiful poem to you Angel girl ....... and my undying eternal love. xxx
The silhouette stands boldly
This wouldn't be the first time
Her visits I don't share with some
I sometimes pity people who
The silhouette reminds me
When the Keeper calls me home
You see, I am the lucky one
Happy Easter beautiful girl, remembering you today and wishing I could just spend a little time with you to sit and hold you and talk to you one more time. God willing one day I will, all my prayers will be answered and I will find my Peace, as you have found yours. Tell my Sam how much I love him and Kip too please. I miss you all so much and send you all my love and kisses every night to the stars. Sweet dreams little lady, until we walk together again, through fields of gold and woodlands of blue. I love you to the stars and beyond.
Have fun and play with all your new friends ...... until we meet again <3
Please watch over Jess my darlings she is very poorly and needs your guidance and love more than ever God bless you, how much I miss you all .... until we meet again. Love Mommy xxx
Reading through the last few posts to you I am in tears for your loss, for the loss of our dear Sam last year and now heart broken again for our beautiful Jess who left this world in my loving arms 5 weeks ago on the 10th May. She didnt make it through darling, she got so sick and after we think she got cancer of the pancreas :'( it was too much for her to fight my darling she was so weak and tired Mommy had to say 'let her go Home please, dont let her hurt anymore .... let her be free to find her Peace. So now the little Angel you sent us 6 weeks after you passed away is Home with you at the bridge in Heaven and all her pain is gone, like yours was, and she is at peace, like you are.
I still miss you so much, my heart aches to hold you in my arms young free and healthy again, but that can never be, not in this life for me. So, I will wait and live my life with only memories and photos and remember you, who you were what you were and what you taught me through our journey together, 11 years of beautiful love and blessings. Your song is called There You'll Be by Faith Hill and I'm going to write down the words for they are filled with love and are specially for you my darling girl, my little Bonesey.
Until we meet again baby know that our love is eternal and can never die......I love you to the stars and beyond Bonsey, on into eternity and forever. See you soon angel girl you have my heart and my love, always 💞💓💞
When I think back
In my dreams
Well you showed me
In my dreams
13 years since you found your wings.....
I love you, I miss you, I need you ....... run free little Angel, I'll see you in the stars and feel you in every rain drop. You are so beautiful how could we ever not love you ~ tell your brothers and sisters how much they are loved and missed every day. So many anniversaries now, so many tears, so much love to remember and cherish. I long for the day I will hold you again and never have to let go. 💔
Harley, my special Angel you are loved and remembered with pride always and you will never be forgotten I promise. You are loved and missed beyond words ~ sweet dreams little Angel ~ we'll meet again one day, forgive me for not being there to say goodbye and be with you, it broke my heart so much 💔 until then ........
For Harley ~ my guide and spirit in the stars .... 💫
Touch me with your voice as a puppy young and new,
Touch me with your spirit, for God sent me here to you,
Touch me with your hands as I grow tall and strong,
Touch me with your lips, and brush them softly on my brow,
Touch me with your eyes, as I become full grown,
Touch me with your heart, as our bond keeps growing stronger,
Touch me with your breath, so soft and warm upon my face,
Touch me with your love as my muzzle turns to gray,
Touch me with your scent when age has dimmed my sight,
Touch me with your face when your tears are meant for me,
Touch me with remembrance when I have traveled on,
