Durango Agility Dogs

IN MEMORIAM

This is a page where DAD would like to show their respect for members dogs who have passed on to the Rainbow Bridge. The following is a beautiful poem that we would like to share with all of those who have lost a beloved pet.

  Rainbow Bridge

Rainbow Bridge

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 of 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 had 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 quivers. 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.

Taxi

In Memory of Taxi Paige
June 15, 1994 - December 10, 2008

Taxi came to us on August 3, 2001, as an older, special-needs dog who had been at our local shelter for a year. She was an intelligent, bossy dog who brought joy, challenges and love to us and the special people who befriended her.

She was my heart dog and I adored her.

Taxi, please be there for me at the bridge.

In Memory of Redby
Feb. 3, 2000-December 1, 2006

Redby Rugby Rufus Razzmatazz -
you came to us at 8 weeks bringing love, delight and intelligence.  You began agility at one year.  After a 3-year hiatus, came back in 2005, competing in NADAC trials in 2006 in Moab and Bayfield.  You remembered all the obstacles you learned in puppyhood.  You were willing to do anything for me. Your fur body taken in your prime; nevertheless you will always be our world class love champion!

Tinker - Memoriam

In Memory of Tinker
2/1999 - 12/2004

"You came to me shy & chubby, from a life that was, well, quite crummy. But Sadie and I quickly made you our buddy. In agility you were a star, and we were going far; but God needs little furry Angels too, and too soon for us he chose you. I know that you are close and that again we all shall meet April, Silkie, Summer and "the Tink". Why?  Because you sent us Pete!"

Star - Memoriam

In Memory of Star
8/19/87 - 12/2003

"Star (Mehagian’s WindStar, CGC, VC, AD) was my first agility dog. We started agility in 1989 in Phoenix. Back then, USDAA was the only venue available. Star was one leg away from her AAD (Advanced Agility Dog) when she had to retire. She was my little angel. She always gave 100% to everything she did. I miss her."

In Memory of Bucky
1990 - 2003

"Bucky came to live with us at age 3. John immediately saw potential, enrolled in agility and performed in USDAA and the AKC’s first agility show. Bucky competed in agility until 12 years old and earned 19 Q’s in a row with the AKC. He competed for a CDX at age 11 with all scores above 193. Bucky is our star and missed very much. Some day we will heal together in heaven.

Sophie - Memoriam

In Memory of Sophie
1995 - 2002

"I adopted Sophie at a year old, completely untrained.  She quickly learned obedience and agility, and was my first agility dog. I had some exceptional teachers, and Sophie titled in both.  She was so friendly to all dogs, cats, and people.  Physically she was sound and strong, loved agility, as well as just being a dog and going on hikes and swims. She will always be close to my heart."
