The Rainbow BridgeThe Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable. 
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they each miss someone very special, someone who was left behind. 
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into those trusting eyes, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...

Date of Birth: May 4, 1997 - 2009

Billy joined us October 2002 as a five year old and fit right in to the household within days of his arrival.
He was new to walking in the woods and spooked at some of the unfamiliar sights and sounds but soon became very comfortable on our walks and hikes.
He developed a good nose for bears and would stop and stare at a spot until the bear came into view.
He had no interest in chasing them, but seemed content just watching. I learned to count on him and
he kept me from a number of close encounters with black and grizzly bears.

Ch. Nowwithem Billy The Kid

He loved being around the grandchildren, but Amanda was his favorite to snuggle with when she visited.

Billy left us in early 2009 and is sadly missed by all who knew him.
