Poem Gate
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....

It is with a heavy heart and eyes brimming that I send this email.

At 3:55 am this morning, Nov. 27, 2011, my life mate, best friend, wife of 26 years, ended her battle with diabetes and crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
She is 55 years old we've been together, off and on since she was 20
........
Her battle with the diabetes has been fierce and she fought bravely to the end.

She requested no services, no flowers, no tears and I'll do my best to honor her wishes.

She would be happy if you made a donation in her name to The Amazing Greys, 246 W. Whitter Ave., Tracy, Ca. 95376

MELI

Nov. 23, 2000 to April 19, 2011
By Michael Martinez
Our beautiful Greyhound Meli was a part of our lives for only 18 months, but it felt as if we’d owned her all our lives. That’s how easily she adapted to our home and our lifestyle, which included three Dachshunds, one cat and two very busy adults.

But Meli, nine years old at the time we brought her home, blended in seamlessly. Click here to read more on Meli.

Born on October 25, 2000
Adopted into the Boyd Place Family on July 15, 2002
Laid to rest on February 8, 2011

Our beloved Casey crossed over the rainbow bridge into heaven on Tuesday after being diagnosed with bone cancer.
He was a sweet, gentle, loving dog and we will miss him greatly.

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.  You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion”

Monroe

Technically I guess Monroe was a rescue. But that's not the way either of us saw it. He rescued me. Even though I was only visiting Susan with no plan of adoption, Monroe was in the front window watching (waiting?) for my arrival. He immediately bonded with me and my rather aloof greyhound Roosevelt. I'd never seen Roosevelt bond with another dog and quickly decided to add Monroe to our family. Weeks later when Roosevelt was diagnosed with cancer, Monroe was my rock and my salvation. It was almost as if Roosevelt picked his successor. During Roosevelts's cancer, Monroe never left my side and provided all the support needed to get through it. All his life, he sensed my every mood and was able to make life better. In Monroe's last week, as he was fighting cancer yet unknown to us, he would wake me every morning with a smooch. Very odd, as he was not a dog that gave kisses. I'm sure he was telling me it was OK. Last week he suffered a serious bone fracture as a result of a tumor, and the best option for his happiness was to release him over the bridge. 

Monroe will always be in our hearts and thoughts, occupying the most special of places. 
With every bit of love for his wonderful spirit, Eric, Steve, McKinley, Simone, and Audrey.

It is with great sadness that I make this post, but, our first Greyt girl, Maci Grey, nee: Maybelle, born; Looks Great on 15 Mar 2000 lost her race with liver cancer but won her last race today as she raced over that Rainbow Bridge.

She was our first grey and we enjoyed 8 great sharing years with the beautiful girl and she will live in our hearts forever.

God and all her wonderful friends will welcome her with open hearts and wagging tails to run free until we meet again ........

Misty entered our lives in the fall of 1999. Still used to her life on the track, she came to us a little lethargic and timid. She would retreat........

Sombra went to the bridge yesterday (9/11) after just short of 16 years. The little kick ass girl who kept all the greyhounds and the pit bull in line let me know her time had come and we did the right thing. Never easy but manditory none the less. Eleanor, Brutt, Chula, Woody, Peaches, Freckles, Babs, Sasha, Wheezle and so many others who have lived here have a new member of their elite pack. Thanks everyone for your love and support.
