Recognizing Friends that have Crossed the Rainbow Bridge


2012 – 2016, Portland, OR

There is one fewer good dog in the world tonight.  Four years is not long enough for a good dog to live, and six months was not nearly long enough for him to be a part of our lives.  Ollie loved us immediately and without reservation, and we couldn’t help bu do the same. he was a counter-surfer, a sock-stealer, a deer-chaser and a took up way too much space on the bed.  He was the ideal mix of exuberant puppy and lazy old couch-dog. And we will be sweeping his hair out of the corners for the next four years.

Rest well, sweet dog.  You are missed.

Harriet was a beautiful Madonna Tabby who graced my life for fourteen years. The name means “ruler of the house,” and in a true feline manner, she did so with grace and dignity. She chose the time of her passing on her own terms and without assistance. She was a great blessing and a constant example of a Zen life.

Dogs give us so much and ask so little of us. When they leave us it is just like the loss of a dear human friend.

Lightning was a great buddy, helping me grow up in ways unexpected starting at age 39 when he first came to our home as a little pup from the Espanola Shelter. We ran, hiked, and walked many trails together. May we meet up soon on a trail in dog heaven!

“Let the passing of dear friends resound in your heart.”
