Over The Rainbow Bridge
in memory of our past friends
Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed and very dear.
Alero my friend,
My heart still hurts as if it were yesterday. People tell me it gets easier with time, but when?
How much time will it take to dull the pain? You were by far the best I could have asked for. You
gave so unconditionally, both in work and play. Thank you for all the love and devotion.
I loved you then and I love you now, I will never forget you. I have high hopes that you are
somewhere on a field of green with all the decoys and dumbells you ever wanted. Don't forget
to "such" me out when my time comes. I love you. JoAnn

Nancy was a stellar example of
what a GSD temperament should
be! She was one of the hardest
hitting bitches we have ever seen,
yet had the kindest heart you
could ever want to meet. May you
rest in peace dear friend. We are
glad to have shared your last
years in our heart and home.

"If there are no dogs in
Heaven, then when I
die I want to go where
they went." - Unknown
If there is a heaven, it's
to be there. Their lives
become so interwoven
with our own, it would
take more than an
archangel to detangle
them.
Pam Brown

about immortality, it is

few persons."

Alero's video
tribute
"I can't think of
anything that brings
me closer to tears
than when my old
dog -- completely
exhausted after a
hard day in the field
-- limps away from
her nice spot in front
of the fire and comes
over to where I'm
sitting and puts her
head in my lap, a
paw over my knee,
and closes her eyes
and goes back to
sleep. I don't know
what I've done to
deserve that kind of
friend."  -- Gene Hill
I Am Your Dog
(Author Unknown)
I am your dog and I have a little something I'd like to whisper in your ear. I know that you humans lead busy lives.
Some have to work, some have children to raise. It always seems like you are running here and there, often much too
fast, often not noticing the truly grand things in life. Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See
the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The gray hairs are
beginning to ring my soft muzzle.

You smile at me; I see the love in your eyes. What do you see in mine? Do you see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves
you as no other could in the world? A spirit that would forgive all the trespasses of prior wrong doing for just a simple
moment of your time? That is all I ask. To slow down, if even for a few minutes to be with me. So many times you have
so quickly, sometimes so suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes, we age so slowly before
your eyes that you may not even seem to know until the very end, when we look at you with grizzled muzzles and
cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep, to run free in a distant
land.

I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes, that
humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just "One more
day" with me. Because I love you so, your sorrow touches my spirit and grieves me. We have NOW, together. So
come, sit down here next to me on the floor, and look deep into my eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and
deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as "alpha" or as "trainer" or even as "Mom or
Dad," come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another's eyes, and talk.

I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or I may tell you something profound about myself, or
even life in general. You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such things with.
Someone very different from you, and here I am. I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and I
can revel in the differences of our spirits and souls. I do not think of you as a "Dog on two feet" --I know what you are.
You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still.

Now, come and sit with me, on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow down if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into
my eyes, and whisper into my ears. Speak with your heart, with your joy and I will know your true self. We may not
have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short.

-- Love (on behalf of canines everywhere)
