Gone But Not Forgotten








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 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 have 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 begins to quiver. 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...

~William (Bill) N. Britton, 1994~



BIS V-3 Rated Can. Ch. EternalFire's A Mystery Solved


    2004 SEPT 06 - 2013 JUNE 10
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we let our beautiful Cajen fly free on June 10, 2013 after her long fight with bone cancer.  The heavens gained a shining star with our beloved girl.  Not a day goes by that she isn't in our heart and thoughts.  Until we meet again my Cajen girl.

2002 May 24 - 2013 November 29
We laid our beautiful foundation girl to rest on November 29, 2013 after being healthy most of her life.  Towards the end she was active, still the Captain of our Fun police and the grand matriarch of our Rottweiler family.  Jenna's kidneys and hind end failed at the end and she was humanely put down to alleviate any suffering.  She and her enormous presence are missed by our family daily.  Until we meet again my Jenny Benny Bean.



We were elated on May 5, 2012 to welcome Dealer's first litter into the world.  She was an excellent mother and the puppies were all thriving, growing like weeds and developing into beautiful babies with wonderful sparkling personalities.  Unfortunately somehow the litter of puppies contracted the horrible parvovirus between 6-7 weeks of age and succumbed to the disease one by one.  We tried everything to save this litter however all of our efforts were unsuccessful.  We are devastated by the loss of this beautiful litter of puppies and wanted to extend our heartfelt condolences to all of our wonderful puppy homes who were so anxiously waiting to add one of these puppies to their lives.    We share your sorrow as we are completely grief stricken by the loss of these beautiful babies.  This truly is every breeder's nightmare come true.  We will love and think about these puppies daily.  We are blessed to have been able to spend as much time with them as we did but of course find it dreadfully unfair that GOD chose to bring them to HIS home far sooner than we ever dreamed imaginable.  We would like to thank Dr. Heffelfinger and all of the staff at Crestwood Vet clinic for bringing these puppies into our lives and trying everything to try to save them.

On May 12, 2012 we welcomed Chili's second litter of puppies to the world with a mixed bag of emotions.  She underwent an emergency C section where we lost several puppies in the litter to prematurely detached placentas.  The vet clinic was able to save three of our Miracle babies, two girls and a boy.  However our Miracle babies lives were cut short, far too short after catching the horrible parvo virus and succumbing to the disease.  Chili was an outstanding mom again and all of the puppies were beautiful, feisty, robust babies who were absolutely darling and delightful to be around.  Our loss is also shared with our wonderful puppy homes who were so anxiously waiting for these puppies. 

Our small girl in the litter ~ would would have been named Copper Bella ~ is sadly mourned by Don & Gwen and family of British columbia.  She was as cute as a button with sparkly shiny eyes and was as sweet as could have been.  Our condolences to Don & Gwen who share who her loss with us. 
May 12, 2012 - June 30, 2012

Our boy in the litter, which would have been named Solo ~ sadly mourned by Pam of Washington state.  He was a beautiful pup who I had nicknamed P.I.T.A because of his propensity in chewing my hair when I cleaned their whelping box.  He was absolutely stunning and was the last puppy that we lost.  Our condolences to Pam who shares his loss with us.

May 12, 2012 - July 2, 2012

Our big girl in the litter ~ would have been named Skye ~ is sadly mourned by Kathy & Bob of Britich Columbia.  She was an absolutely stunning pup with a feisty 'look at me' attitude.   Our condolences to Kathy & Bob who share her loss with us.
