|The Rainbow Bridge represents the heart-felt belief that when our beloved canine or
feline friends (or any animal friend) are taken from us, they go to a place where they
can run and play without pain or suffering, where they become whole again and everyday
is filled with love and friendship. To get to this wonderful place, they must first cross
over the "Rainbow Bridge". It is here where they will be greeted and led across. Once
across the bridge, the only thing that will complete their joy is when they are united with
their loving human companions.
|We may not be together in the way we used to be,
But we are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.
When I'm gone, release me,
let me go. You mustn't tie
yourself to me with tears.
You can only guess how
much you gave me in
happiness. Grieve for me a
while, if you grieve you must
then let your grief be
comforted by trust. And then
when you must come this
way alone, I'll greet you with
a lick and bark, "Welcome
The Rainbow Bridge
because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of
There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge
meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water
and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are
maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.
There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved
them on Earth. So each day they run and play until the day comes when one
suddenly stops playing and looks up!The eyes are staring! And this one suddenly
runs from the group!
You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her
in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again and you
look once more
into the eyes of your trusting pet.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.
Rainbow Bridge Story
"Just this side of Heaven is a place called The 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 and 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 miss someone
very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks
into the distance. The bright eyes are intent, the eager body quivers. Suddenly they
begin to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, their legs carrying
them 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 the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never
absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together......."
|This was the very last picture taken of
Molly. She didn't like cameras very
well and was running to her bed
God saw you getting tired,
and a cure was not to be.
So He put his arms around
you and whispered, "Come
to Me". With tearful eyes
we watched you, and saw
you pass away, and
although we loved you
dearly, we could not make
you stay. A golden heart
stopped beating, tail and
paws at rest. God broke our
hearts to prove to us, He
only takes the best.
|Molly's AKc name Was Jessica's Darling Molly, If you have akc registered poodles you
might find her name far back in the pedigree. Molly was also known as Molly Mcbutter or
Butter Butt (I dont know how that one got started but she knew it was her nick name
|Here are some of Molly's babies. If you have one of Molly's babies and would like their
Picture posted Just let me know.
|This is one of Molly's baby girls, Xena
As you can see she loves attention. Anyone
who has been to the house probably
remembers Xena and her persistent effort to
be center of Attention. Xena was born on
March 2, 1996, and even though she is
getting up in age, she is still a brat and I
wouldn't want it any other way.

MY FOREVER FRIEND
I know that it must be different,
now that I am no longer here.
I realize how much I was loved
and how all of you did care.
I know it will be hard at first
when you look around for me.
Expecting to find me in my bed
or beside my favorite tree.
Someday you will begin to see,
although it'll take some time,
the happy times you shared with me,
the memories are yours and mine.
I'll remember you, my family
and how much you meant to me,
So please don't grieve and don't be
sad, it was just my time to leave.
A Tribute to Molly
November 25, 1991 - March 16, 2006
When I think of my Love for Poodles, I think of Jessica's Darling Molly. Molly
has been here since she was still a pup. Molly was the second Poodle that we
ever owned.. The first was Utt's Little Orphan (Lady) who went to live with my
sister in law before she was even a year old.
Without Molly, We would not have known how wonderful poodles can be. Molly
has contributed so much to this family. More Love has been born from that little
dog than anyone could ever know... I Remember seeing her when she was only
about 5 weeks old and thinking she was the most unique color that I had ever
saw and her little personality even at that age stole my heart. I wanted her but
unfortunately the breeder said she was already spoken for.. Several months
later I was offered the opportunity to get her and I was ecstatic about it. Molly
may not have been the best quality or the most beautiful poodle but she was as
precious as Gold. For the most part she would pass her sweetness and
unique personality on to her pups. Molly gave me my precious Charlotte who
touched parts of my heart that I didn't even know was possible. Charlotte would
run and play tag with Pat and when they were both tired out they would lay in
the middle of the floor on their backs with her head pointed towards his head.
Tragically Charlotte was killed by a Rottie right before she turned 2..
She brought more love into our lives than most dogs do in a life time. She
wasn't our pet, she was my baby. I could never repay Molly for giving me
Charlotte even if it was for such a short time.
My daughter Jessica bonded with Molly right away and Molly knew Jessie was
hers right from the beginning. Jessica grew up with Molly. Molly was Jessie's
best friend and when Molly starting aging and needed Special care, it was
Jessie who was there for her, Jessie who slept with her,It was Jessie who
changed Molly's diapers towards the end when her bowels would leak..Even
though Molly was having problems with arthritis and bowel problems and
sometimes it was necessary for Molly to take something for pain, she was
always still so full of life, Even on that last day when I was feeding puppies that
morning she tried to run after me to get some of that good stuff.. I turned and
told her that I would save her some and feed her later... I never got that chance.
I believe the tumor in her bowels must have busted sometime while I was doing
the puppy chores..
Molly was her happiest in Jessie's arms... Jessie held her lovingly with
quiet tender tears as Molly peacefully left this world.
|Xenia has been Laid to Rest.
RIP Baby girl.
