A Tribute to Shaggy

Hi everyone, My name is Jaya. I lost my lovable lab, Shaggy, a year ago. Was 5 years old. He ran out the front gate and was hit by a car.

I was only 14 when I got Shaggy (now I'm 19). I was so over the moon about having a dog, just the fact that I could look after him and share fun times with him seemed so fantastic. Mum was meant to get me a dog when I was about 7, but she thought it would be difficult to look after as i was too young.

After I got Shaggy, I couldn't imagine how I lived with out him for so long! He just made life a whole lot better. After he passed away, I again think how can I live with out him. He was a gentle giant.

Do dogs go to heaven?
by Dan Atcheson

My little bully passed away, no more to breathe a sound.
I held him for the last time, then entombed him in the ground.
Day and night I wept so much, in tears I thought I'd drown.
I searched my soul for comfort, but no peace therein was found.

In great despair, I hit my knees and then began to pray.
"Father will I ever see, my dog again someday?"
I raised my eyes and saw an angel standing near a gate.
I sensed an inner peace I'd never felt before that day.

The angel smiled and said to me, "Oh man of little faith!
God sees every bird that falls; He knows your bully's fate.
I have met your little dog, I saw him pass my way.
Your precious dog is still alive; he just walked through this gate.

Paradise is lovelier than you can comprehend.
No pain or grief, no tears or fears, and life will have no end.
God gave to man His only Son, to cover all his sins.
So why would God withhold from you, your pure and loving friend?”

The angel took me by the hand and said, "Now come with me.
A glimpse of paradise I'll give, to you so you can see."
Through the gate and o'er the Rainbow Bridge we did proceed.
Through green valleys filled with flowers, rolling hills and trees.

“Wow, so this is paradise!” The place was filled with joy.
I saw my bully playing there, with dogs and cats and toys.
He also had some doggie treats, and food that he enjoyed.
He'd made a lot of new friends there, including girls and boys.

Then I saw a child come near, and hug my little mate.
She said to him, "I love you so," and kissed him on the face.
The angel said, "The child just crossed the Rainbow Bridge today.
Now she needs a little friend, to love and help her play.

God’s love for her would be enough, in that make no mistake.
But in His love, He knew full well, the child would want a mate.
This is why God called your dog unto this splendid place.
God’s entrusted her with him, ‘til you pass through the gate."

I pleaded, “May I hug them both?!” The angel answered, “No!
You’d violate a sacred site, and now it’s time to go.”
He led me back across the Bridge and through the gate to home.
He left me there with new-found hope and peace within my soul.

If someone ever asks what happens to a dog that dies,
Just give a gentle smile of joy and look them in the eye.
Take their hand and comfort them and tell them not to cry.
For dogs don’t die, they simply cross a bridge to paradise.

Thank you for the wonderful photos and sharing your story about Shaggy. My deepest condolences on your loss.

What?

Bored... Roxie seems to be quite the moody animal, she's much easier to photograph when she's in this mood than her hyper one.

Negra 01/09/08

black labrador retriever - Negra

My son Raúl “Rulo” with his service dog Negra, who is his shadow. She is by his side the whole day. Rulo loves his dog and from the day that Negra is at home, the changes in his behaviour are visible.

black lab - Negra

Negra is a black lab, 14 month old. She is from a local breeder who has the best blood lines in Lab that you can find in Chile (I understand). Many of the dogs are used as guide dogs, etc.

black labrador - Negra

My little son Raimundo was born in Dec-12. Me and kids visited him. In Chile we have a disabled law (20.025) that allows disabled people to get in to public and private buildings, so we went to the hospital and know him!!

A couple of weeks ago a blind man wasn´t accepted in the same hospital, so I need to create a strategy in order to stay in the same room than my son. This day I was so happy on be so hard headed to go in to the hospital!!

labrador retriever - Negra

Crazy or not?
Negra is a close friend of our 6 yr old cat.

I have to apologize to Russell with this photo. He had sent me the photo in the beginning of December to post with the Christmas holiday season Labrador Retrievers. Somehow I managed not to post it during that month. Sorry Russell!

Tess 01/02/08

A TRIBUTE TO TESS
1992 - 2007



black labrador retriever - Tess

Tess .... passed away at the age of 15 years.

I explained it to St. Peter,
I'd rather stay here
Outside the pearly gate.
I won't be a nuisance,
I won't even bark, I'll be very patient and wait,
I'll be here, chewing on a celestial bone,
No matter how long you may be.
I'd miss you so much, if I went in alone,
It wouldn't be heaven for me.

I was given this verse .... author unknown.

black labrador retriever - Tess

Tess and Paws

Tess was 15 years old in April and Paws is 7 years. They sleep together every night.

Rainbow Bridge
(Author Unknown)

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 she begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her 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 her 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 pass over Rainbow Bridge together....

My deepest condolences on the loss of your beautiful gal, Christine. Thank you for sharing Tess with us.

Rowan 01/02/08

black labrador - Rowan

This is a picture of our 1 year old female Rowan. She is our pride and joy!

She is very long and lean compared to other labs I see; we adopted her from a foster mom that rescued her from a parking lot, so I have no information on her ancestry. But I find her beautiful, loyal, and a great friend to my husband and I and our two kids.

Photo From: Deborah (USA)

Thanks Deborah, it always makes me very happy to hear when someone adopts, as some many of this wonderful breed end up in shelters/rescues and go unclaimed.
