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....
I lost a treasure friend today
The little dog who used to lay her
Gentle head upon my knee
And share her silent thoughts
She’ll come no longer to my call
Retrieve no more her favorite ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called her to His golden throne
And though my eyes are filled
I thank him for the happy years
He let her spend down here
And for her love and loyalty
Here are some thoughts, poems, and tributes to the family members that we will always remember.

Diva was not just a pet, she was our Family. She was the most love-able dog you would ever meet. She loved to cuddle and go for walks. She knew when you weren't feeling well, as she would never leave your side. So we didn't leave your side either. We stayed until you took your last breathe and was finally at peace. A part of our family is missing now. But she will forever be in our hearts. My Diva, we will love you always.

As I reflect and am flooded with memories of my furry babies, I too am amazed by life’s journey. Miss Shatzie Doodlebug was a precious furry soul that I’ll always be convinced was created just for me. After years of not being able to own my own pets due to being so allergic, Jaeger ‘Jaggie’ came into my life and it was love at first sight. I loved that boy more than I ever knew possible and was amazed I could actually own a dog of my own, a hypoallergenic Schnauzer. Who knew? Not me. Jaggie was 5 when I became his mommy and I was over the moon in love with him 💙🐶💙 He was the sweetest, most passive, funny, talkative, cuddly lover boy with a super big personality. Unfortunately he had epilepsy so, he was a sick boy, but with medication and extra TLC he handled it pretty well. It always broke my heart that he did not have a companion (especially since he had been with furry companions all his life) so after almost a year of him being ‘alone’ and buying a home I decided it was time to get him a sister.
So the hunt began. I was excited and nervous, I had never raised a puppy and honestly never thought I could because I’ve always been so allergic. Finding a happy healthy puppy is hard. We hit a few dead ends but by the Grace of God I found Robin Eaves in Ellijay, GA. She was so pleasant to speak with and had two female 6 week old Schnauzers available. It was a Sunday, October 30th, 2005. We hopped into the Sound Sensations Hummer 2 (that was all blinged out with chrome and such - this is funny later) with Jaggie and we started making the 1.5 hour drive to Ellijay. Once off the main road it was quite hilly and curvy and definitely in the mountains. We slowly made our way and arrived at a small country home with chickens running all around the front yard. We pull up and stuck out like two sore thumbs in this quiet little country mountain town driving this big loud blinged out hummer. I couldn’t help but laugh aloud. ‘We apparently weren’t from around them there hills’. We were greeted by Robin whom was just as sweet and kind as I had imagined. Little did I know at the time that once I walked through her door my life would forever change for the positive. There in an old style baby playpen were two little adorable 6 week old, salt and pepper and silver Schnauzer pups 💗💗 Oh how my heart skipped a beat seeing these two precious babies and I knew right away one of those babies would be mine. She took them out of the playpen to let them meet us and right away this little spunky, adorable, wobbly legged baby came towards me and started crawling all over me wanting my attention. I looked at her adorable little face and instantly fell in love. We were able to meet her parents and her mother’s name also confirmed she was definitely the baby girl for me. Her dad was a handsome silver and named Toby Silver Streak. Her mom was a beautiful salt and pepper and named Miss Katelynn von Courtney. Courtney was her mom’s name and she went by Katie. I couldn’t believe it as I had always said if I had a little girl I would want to name her Catelynn (Cate is my middle name and my grandmothers maiden name), so sure enough I named my new precious puppy girl Miss Shatzie von Catelynn. Though the spelling is different it is in honor of her mom who was also named after her mom and my family name. Then to top it all off, Shatzie had a small reddish color going down the back of her neck and I had also said if I had a little girl I hoped her hair would be red.... little did I know that my little girl would be of the furry version, just as God had planned. Then it was, I had a beautiful little silver and salt and pepper with a little red streak baby girl puppy, Miss Shatzie von Catelynn that would forever change my life and show me more happiness, joy and unconditional love then I ever knew existed!!
She was what I called my ‘Mountain Schnauzer’, rightfully so and she soon took on many other names such as Sweetheart (Shaztie means sweetheart in German) Doodlebug, Doodlebritches, Doodle, Shatzie Doodle, Little beastly beast, princess, baby girl, kissaopotamus, Shatz, Sassy Shatzie, lump of love and my furry soulmate. I’ll never forget how absolutely in love I was with her precious little furry soul. Every waking moment that I was not working I wanted to be with her and Jaggie. I didn’t want to go out to concerts, to functions or anything other than be with my furry babies. One of the many reasons I feel Shatzie and I bonded the way we did is because she was such a good, sweet, spunky, happy, playful, funny, aiming to please full of pure love puppy!! She made me laugh more times than I can count and showed me unconditional love through and through!! Shatzie LOVED her brother Jaggie too. She would chase him around biting him to make him pay her attention and give him a daily morning eye ‘shellacking’ by cleaning his eyes up to perfection. She definitely livened Jaggie up and they became the very best companions 💗💙 Shatzie loved to play with toys and Jaggie, belly rubs, giving kisses, hanging out the window of the car, snuggling, chasing and licking ice cubes, going for walks, treats and eating, pleasing her mommy and just being a sweet happy pup!! She knew my routines better than I did and was always such a little sweetheart even during her chewing like a little beaver puppy stage where she chewed base boards and door frames like candy and she never met a stranger!! Shatzie was truly perfect in every way and I’ll FOREVER feel blessed and fortunate to have spent over 12 years of my life being her mommy!!
On 10/5/11, not long after Shatzie turned 6, Jaggie’s heart could no longer sustain his seizures and he peacefully passed away in my arms with Shatzie by his side. That was a super depressing and heart breaking time for us all!! Shatzie took it very hard and mourned for around three months even though I immediately bought her a new companion/brother Meister. She didn’t take to him well as he was a spunky little puppy very much unlike her completely chill brother Jaggie. She had never been alone or without a companion so I knew it was the right thing to do but it made it harder since Shatzie had no interest in him at the beginning. Meister eventually grew on her and they would play and carry on but I do not feel like she ever loved him as much as her brother Jaeger!! Then on 2/12/18, Jaggies 19th birthday in heaven, Shatzie grew her wings and crossed over the rainbow bridge to be with him again. How ironic is that? Very ironic but also quite appropriate. Now here I am 14 years after my journey with Jaggie and Shatzie began without either of them physically here. It’s surreal to think about. Those two precious furry souls changed my life more than I could have ever imagined!! They may not physically be here but my gosh at the memories, pictures and love I will forever hold dear in my heart of all the amazing years we spent together!! Though no amount of time would be long enough for me to spend with them, I’m forever grateful for the years the Lord blessed me with!! Now I have my adorable little Meister MooMoo boy whom I love dearly to console, love and care for during his time of heartache as well. He is being such a big boy but I can tell his heart hurts from missing his sister as his personality has changed so much in the past week and it’s hard to see him go through such. He too has never lived alone and or without a furry companion and it is not easy on him especially since he’s so hyper and playful. So as time heals our hearts and we try to adjust to life without Shatzie we spend all our time together taking one day at a time until we figure out our new journey in life. No two journeys are the same but I pray the Lord continues to console us and shower us with his many blessings and love!!
