Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

Words can not describe the feeling when you lose a pet.....they just take a part of you with them when they go......

Blitz was bred here at ACC Ranch/Gun Dogs R Us....he was sold as an 8 week old puppy to be a Service Dog, when he was about 5 months old, the Service Dog Organization realized he was born to hunt, not to be a service dog, and returned him to the ranch. It didn't take long for us to realize what a fabulous dog he was...... had his Jr. Hunt Title by the time he was 6 months old....was RIck's Number One Guide Dog.....Blitz, thanks for the memories, you will be missed dearly.

Lucky got his name because he was born in our tack room, one of our dogs (Misty) found him when he was about 5 days old............the rest of his litter had died, his Mom must have run into a coyote.

We bottle fed him, taught him everything, I think he thought he was 1/3 cat, 1/3 dog, and 1/3 person.

One of Lucky's favorite spots was on Rick's shoulder, or laying on his chest when Rick was soaking in the bathtub.

We will miss Lucky SOOO much, and will never forget his un-cat like personality!

RIP Lucky!

Millie was a wonderful dog...taught us how to truly live in the moment. We originally got Millie for a guard dog, a big black lab would certainly scare anyone off, right? Well, Millie would look at any stranger, wag her tail, give them a smile, then lead them right to the cookie jar. Millie was a hunter....although she loved to retrieve, many times she had to compete with the shorthairs, remember, GSP's are really fast.....almost like greyhounds. When she did get a retrieve in we'd always say, she'll get the bird today, bring it back next Tuesday!

She was one of the loves of our lives! We will never forget that big old otter tail wagging!

We love and miss you Millie! RIP!

"Why does it hurt so when a pet dies...perhaps because they expect so little and give so much!" Gabe F.

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 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. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him 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....

A Parting Prayer

Dear Lord, please open your gates

and call St. Francis

to come escort this beloved companion

across the Rainbow Bridge.

Assign her to a place of honor,

for she has been a faithful servant

and has always done her best to please me.

Bless the hands that send her to you,

for they are doing so in love and compassion,

freeing her from pain and suffering.

Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss.

Help me remember the details of her life

with the love she has shown me.

And grant me the courage to honor her

by sharing those memories with others.

Let her remember me as well

and let her know that I will always love her.

And when it's my time to pass over into your paradise,

please allow her to accompany those

who will bring me home.

Thank you, Lord,

for the gift of her companionship

and for the time we've had together.

And thank you, Lord,

for granting me the strength

to give her to you now.
