The Rainbow Bridge by Author Unknown:
Cookie joined our family in the Fall of 2004, along with another Cocker Spaniel,
Sophie. They were found together, along with two other cockers, probably used
for breeding as they were each a different color. She was 3-4 years old at that
time, so she was about 14 when she passed away on November 14. Cookie didn’t
really like to play with toys, except for the cat. She and our white calico,
Julie, went at it a few times. She preferred to cuddle and go for walks. If
anyone was doing anything around the house, especially her Mommy, she wanted to
be included. She watched for food to fall in the kitchen. She stood guard
while Mom worked in the flower beds, she watched her bubby while he played
basketball, she sat with sissy while she put on her makeup, she watched the
ladder when Daddy was working on the house and helped him keep the couch warm.
Cookie was the “big sister” to Sophie. She was always checking on her and she
even put a paw on her back when she thought Sophie needed correcting. As much
as her human family misses her, we know that her furry family misses her too.
Rest in Peace Cookie

He liked to drink in the bathroom sink, and later liked me dipping my finger in water and letting him lick the water from my finger. He loved playing hide and seek with me, he like play tag with Cleopatra “his very best friend.”
He loved going on the back porch and setting on the swing with Cleopatra feeling the air on his face, watching the birds visit the yard. He took many long afternoon naps on his little rug on the back porch. Cleopatra and Carlton were always close by napping as well.
Favorite Memory: I have many but some of my favorite memories od Mr. Shadow Man are: He was always looking for something to get into. He loved tipping the waste baskets over just to see what was in there, or maybe just because he could get a reaction from me. Shadow loved Christmas time when I would get out all the ribbons and wrapping. He was always in the middle of all the action, on the paper grabbing the ribbon, he’d tunnel under the paper then jump out to get me. Never a dull moment with my furry friend around. He loved boxes, paper bags, but most of all he loved coming up the new ways to wake me up in the mornings. Knocking things off my desk, walking on key board, Click, click, click. If that didn’t work Shadow would put his face as close to mine until his whiskers would tickle my face, when that failed he would pull out the heavy artillery… Shadow would put the handle of my dresser and put it in his mouth and pull it back and let go of it BANG it worked every time. Breakfast is served. Loved how Cleopatra and Shadow took their naps together and slept at night. We have a big void here at my house, Cleopatra and I miss “Mr. Shadow Man” so much, but we will cross that Rainbow Bridge one day and be together once again.

Ch. Shikara’s Mischief Brewing (1995-2011)
On the way to a dog show, a radio station played Glen Miller’s “In the Mood” as sung by chickens (actually by Ray Stevens). Serena arose from her nap and started dancing happily in her crate to the point we thought she was going to knock it over. When we got home, we ordered the CD and played it for her. Serena again began dancing and looking for the chicken behind the speakers, dancing all the way. She loved that song.
Shikara’s Friendly Apparition (1995-2008)
Casper had a promising show career until as injury ended those dreams, but he was just as happy playing with his pink fuzzy pig. He also appeared in several ads for a regional pet supply store as he was very photogenic and loved being held by people in funny animal costumes.
Hylan Shikara’s Fuzzy Logic (1994-2009)
Claudia was a funny dog. If anyone came to visit, she would run and hide. Only her Auntie Sunny was able to “catch” her and play with her. Claudia liked to nibble on our necks-which is why she was named fro Claudia in interview with the vampire-but it had to be her idea to come to you and cuddle. Once she was there, she enjoyed a good back rub.
Toby (2001-2013) and Tinkerbell (1997-2013)

After she died at age 15, Toby, who had been successfully battling liver ailment, spent all day and night looking for her, refusing to eat. Sadly, he followed her in death two weeks later in the arms of his human mom.
Al-Mar’s Sev-N-Up Float (1998-2013)
Nicholas was his mom’s Main Man. He wasn’t a cuddler, but he knew when she had pain because he would act as a heating pad by lying on her hip. How did he know to do that? It is a Maltese trait from millennia past. But he was also “The Instigator.” Not a person walked down the street without us knowing about it. He looked after us all.
Chalet’s Venus (1998-2014)
True to her name, Venus was a goddess of love. She loved nothing better than to snuggle with her Daddy on the couch. Ironically, it was her heart that gave out at the end, but her love endures.
