Over the Rainbow Bridge:

By the edge of the woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where my friends of many years do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.
For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge we cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, some break from the pack.

For just at that instant, our eyes have met;
Together again, both - me and my pets.
So we run to each other, my friends from long past,
The time of our parting is over at last. 

The sadness we felt while we were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart. 
We embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, we cross over… together.


Pretty Black Oilily

black tri Australian Shepherd, born May 16th 2010

Dam: "Pretty Cat Ballou" (†) 
Sire: "Rough River Pretty Max" (†)

Sky was a dog like no other. She was my dog from the very first moment and followed me as a puppy trustingly into her new life. She was by my side for 13 years, followed me step by step and was always there for me. She loved people, was always friendly, never growled at anyone or barked at anyone. No matter where she was, she always put a smile on people's faces. But her fulfillment in life was being my dog.

On July 22nd, 2023 she silently passed away at home, surrounded by her beloved family.

Docs Shining Check

buckskin tobiano APHA geldin born. April 8th 2003

Dam: "Docs Last Jessie" (†) 
Sire: "Hesa Tiny Paycheck" (†)

Our Jack was - I think - the most successful non-competition horse between 2005 and 2010. He hated competitions and everything that went with it, but he still always gave his best for Sabrina. Although he was absolutely not a show horse, with Sabrina in the saddle he was Reserve European champion, German champion and Bavarian champion. He was consistently in the top 5 at regional and international paint tournaments for 5 years. Later he often had health problems and was no longer under the saddle.

On February 26th, 2024 he started his last journey and - as was his wont - leisurely trotted over the Rainbow Bridge.
