By Elfix6
A great snapshot of my buddy Felix who went to puppy heaven last weekend. Makes me glad to have photography as my hobby and the opportunity to capture happy memories.

Very sad to lose such a lovely looking dog. I have my own dog memorial on EPZ too. A nice way to show them off to the world.

It's hard losing your dog, they become so part of the family. I agree about being happy for having taken probably many great shots of your friend. Now you have these to remember him with. This is a great capture by the way..........Sandy

I hope this helps you as much as it helped my wife and i at the loss of our best friend...So sorry for your loss.


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....
