In Memory
Quiggly, a.k.a. Quiggley's Girl Down Under
14 April 95 ~ 09 November 06

This blog is dedicated to my beloved beagle "Quiggly".
We had to say good bye to her on 09 Nov 06.
She was almost 12 years old AKC 13" American Beagle.
I adopted her ten years ago from the Seattle Beagle Rescue Soceity. I miss her dearly, the delight of my heart.

I received a lovely poem called "Rainbow" Bridge" from my mother to help me through my grief. I would like to share it with you. It is a lovely, touching reminder of our beloved pets that we had to be strong for.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that had been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to the Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all 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 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 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....

I'm going to miss her also. Quiggs and Von Brown really had a good time together! Now they are both waiting for us. Hopefully playing together again.
