Kody, This Is Fangy. I Just Got The News Tonight That
YOU HAVE LEFT FOR THE RAINBOW BRIDGE. I hope it is very beautiful there and that you love it very much. Maybe you will chase butterflies and catch bugs and roll around and let your tummy face the sunshine?

You and me always looked alike and our Mom and Dads love us so much. We have always been good kitties, too. :)

Your folks sure did brag about you a lot on BP and I used to dream about those big shrimp plates you got served all the time. Man. You had it made but I know you were worth it, too. Most grey kitties are. =^..^= =^..^= (smiling with my fangs hanging out)...Someday I will be there, too, at the rainbow bridge so don't forget to look for me. We will all be there way before our parents so we can be the best of friends there,okay? Please look for Lucky Boy Swan and Pookey Swan. They are already there. We Love You Always. XOXOXO -Fangy

Hi Robert, Thanks for signing the dedication card for Tony and Chris Ebben who just lost their little Kody Kitty. She (Kody) was almost 20 years old and so very loved.


Hi Usman. Thanks so much for signing the memorial card for Kody. You're thoughtful words are so appreciated!

I will just be quiet now and let others sign the card here. Chris and Tony, we are so very sorry.

Oh this is so sad, a wonderful dedication little sister for Chris and Tony!

Words fail me, 20 years is such a long time for an animal to be part of this earth and ones life it is too devastating to think owithoutth them .

I hope Kody will also look for my Boo at the Rainbow Bridge. He's there with all my other much loved furbabies and can always use another good friend. So hard for us to lose them, and we can only hope to see them again someday.

A beautiful and thoughtful dedication to Chris and Tony's Kody, Lala. I'm so sorry for the loss of their beloved pet. I know how the loss of a dear pet feels, there's nothing much worse than that. Maybe my Gussy, Pudgy, Daniel and Christy will greet him at the Rainbow Bridge. I don't know you, Tony and Chris, but I'd like to send my heartfelt thoughts your way.

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....

BP Family, Chris and Tony have not just lost their sweet little girl kitty *Kody* but they have lost three kitties in just a few months time.

We lost two in a 12 month span and it has been so hard.

Please, if you are the praying kind can you keep them in your prayers for peace and comfort?

Thanks all. Love is LOVE and when we lose what we have loved it can hurt so very deeply.

We are so overwhelmed by all your thoughtful wishes about our loss of Kody. We are finding it very difficult in the van without her, luckily we have family around & we have to pull ourselves together. The other people in the park only have dogs, Kody would have liked walking past them all, listening to everyone say, "look, that's a cat on a lead!" That always made us smile. Thank you all for signing this lovely card from Fangy & Laura. We're trying to "Keep smiling" ... Chris & Tony

Beautiful card and dedication Emmy.

Chris and Tony, I was very saddened to learn of Kodys' passing. It has been 3 years that we lost our beloved Percy. Seems like only yesterday. He was 14 when he crossed over the rainbow bridge. I pray you find peace & comfort here in knowing that we all share your pain. Take care my friends, and God bless you and your family......Laura

Pom, you found a really lovely way to acknowledge Kody's passing. Saying "farewell" to a much-loved family member is never easy. I'm so sorry, Chris and Tony, that you've suffered such a loss three times in a short span of time.
I hope it comforts you to picture Kody and her former housemates frolicking in eternal sunshine with all the other much-missed pets, and sharing her endless supply of shrimp!

So sorry to hear of your loss of your beloved pet. We lost our two kitties and with them pieces of our hearts. I am sure you are feeling the same. Our Londonfog and Littlebit await to help your Kitty feel more at ease on the other side of the bridge ....a wonderful place of peace where they await to join us again one day....
My heart goes out to you....

Wonderful dedication Laura. We're comforted knowing that there's no more pain for them, only peace in the realm beyond. Take care dear friend.

I'm doing fine, just don't have the drive with photography at the moment. I will have to do some shooting to jump start my enthusiasm. Thanks for visiting my gallery to say hi. You're so great. :)
