Rainbow Wall


There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It’s called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors.  Just this side of the bridge there is a land of meadows and hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a pet dies, it goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are made young again. The crippled and maimed become whole. They play with each other all day long. There is only one thing missing: the special person who loved them on Earth.

So they run and play for days on end, until suddenly one stops and looks! The nose twitches! The ears are up! The eyes are bright and expectant! Quickly, this one runs from the group.

You have been spotted, and when you and your friend meet, you take him into your arms with unrestrained joy. Your face is kissed again and again, and you look into the eyes of your trusted friend who has been waiting for you.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be parted.



We honor the memory of our beloved PWDs that have made such an impact on our lives.

Ol' Salt Sandpiper by the Sea, CWDX

Sad news from the Melson family. Their beloved Piper has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Piper was our introduction to the wonderful world of Portuguese Water Dogs and all that comes with them.  She showed us what a champion was in the conformation ring and how a dog could achieve every title available in water work.  She taught us much she was loved and cherished by people outside of her family with her work as a therapy dog.  She gave us the most wonderful legacy with her beautiful puppies and grandpuppies.  She was the best dog ever, and she is missed so very much by so many, not just Ken, Sandy, and Robbie Melson
