 Rainbow Over Water

The Rainbow Bridge Story
an answer to "Where do our pets go when they die?")


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....

Daisy’s Gone Home

Those of you who have been touched by Daisy’s rescue and Emily’s care of her may want to know that Daisy’s taken her final journey to the Rainbow Bridge.

Come Bye Border Collie Rescue is grateful to have been able to sponsor Daisy.   It would not have been possible without Emily’s huge heart and Lynn’s financial contribution.   Thank you from the bottom of all our hearts.

Come Bye BCR is often asked to take in senior dogs, dogs with chronic conditions, and dogs who require expensive surgery and long term rehabilitation.   Our fantastic foster homes lovingly provide care when we can.  Emily is already willing to open her home and heart to another senior dog in need. 

But even if you’re not able to physically care for such a dog, you can still be involved in making the difference, with a one-time or recurring contribution.    In fact, we have a lovely female waiting in the wings right now, waiting for the financial resources to be located for her surgery.   

 If you’d like to participate in the rescue and rehabilitation of a deserving dog like Daisy, or Champ, or Holly (Norma  Jean), please send in your contribution by Paypal now, or contact us at comebyebcr@hotmail.com .     That little end-of-tail wag, from a good dog whose bad luck is finally starting to change, is waiting for your response. 


Jan. 4. Over the last 3 weeks Daisy has lost weight and seems disoriented and very fragile. I took her for a re-check last night and it confirms that our girl's health is failing pretty rapidly. Her weight is down from 32 pds to 26 pds and she looks a bit disoriented at times. During her last check up in September her BUN was 54mg and CREA 2.3mg. This time her BUN is 130mg (or higher) and her CREA 2.3mg. Options are intravenous fluids or fluids under the skin. We gave her fluids under the skin last night and it did make a difference in her perkiness but this is not a long term solution and will not take away all of her pain. My plan has always been to help her live a great life but not keep her alive if it meant she would live in pain. I have decided to give her fluids under the skin daily for a week(ish) to keep her comfortable until I set a date to send her home. She is sleeping a lot more and does not follow me around much anymore. I regret ever complaining about her constantly being "under my feet". I noticed right away when she stopped following me everywhere. I have been telling her over the last few weeks to let me know when the time came for her to go home...she is ready now but I guess I thought she would live forever. Until it's time, Daisy will eat delicious meats, get extra lovins and maybe go on a couple day trips with me to visit some folks to say goodbye. When it's time, we'll got to my parents (Grandma and Grandpa's) where she can rest and sleep soundly on her bed. I am glad that she took a turn quickly and it was not a long painful process. I told her to let me know when she was ready and she did. I have been sitting on the floor with her alot lately and she falls asleep pretty fast. When the time comes, I will pet her until she falls asleep then let her pass. I am dreading it but I know she will be better off. I have always said, if dogs don't go to heaven then I don't want to go...I want to go where they are..that would be my heaven. Attached is a family photo of Daisy's brothers and sisters. She was happy and loved by them all. The other photo is of her and another senior dog that we took from a shelter (may 09) since he was going to be put to sleep. They really love each other and he is always with her. His name is Winston and we are his forever home. Thanks to CBBCR for allowing me to keep her and let her live out her life with us. I am also so glad a sponsor come along to ease the burden of her vet bills. I have a new found love for senior dogs and hope to help many more.
