Gone to rainbow bridge but forever with us in our hearts.....


Hovis 5th May 1997 - 26th June 2012
It is with great sadness that we had to say 'goodbye, sleep tight' to our darling precious boy. Hovis had the most wonderful life - all 15 years, 1 month and 21 days - and was the best companion we could ever have asked for. Loved by many, Hovis brought such joy into our lives. Most importantly, Hovis knew he was loved and cherished every single day of his life. The house feels empty without you my sweet boy, I will miss you forever, until we meet again.....


 Rainbow Bridge Poem

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth and it is called Rainbow bridge because of its many colours.

Just this side of Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place.

There is always food and water and warm spring weather.

All the animals who have 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 begins to quiver.

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.

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 the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.
