(Jan 1986 - Jul 2000)


Patience was adopted February 1986, from the local "Fur, Fin and Feathers" animal shelter. Believe it or not, Patience was born in a litter of pups looking like your typical German Shepherds. Her shining white coat and black/brown markings really set her apart from the others and we knew instantly ... she was very special!


As a teenager, Patience loved the out-of-doors and playing in water. We even bought a wading pool just for her to play in.
As she got older, her coat faded, but she never lost her love for fresh air and sunshine. Whether hiding in the backyard weeds or a patch of grass when camping, she would spend hours outside just sniffing the air, content to be surrounded by her "family."
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 and 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 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. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away 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.
