  1. My beloved boy (05/21/2020 - 09/19/2020) ❤️

    Golden Retriever Rainbow Bridge
    My small boy passed away suddenly yesterday morning. He died in my arms at only 3 months old. I wish he had more time to explore and enjoy the world. He never got to swim, go to a dog park, go to the beach and many more things. We were supposed to grow old together, to travel together and...
  2. My Beautiful Copper... It's only been a month and I miss you so much everyday.

    Golden Retriever Rainbow Bridge
    My family recently lost our first golden retriever about a week and a half into the COVID pandemic (In the middle of the night on March 24th). His name was Copper and he was the most loving and amazing dog I've ever owned. Copper passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly, about a month before...
  3. My boy Coop...

    Golden Retriever Rainbow Bridge
    I read a study that people empathize more with dogs than with other people. For all the dog owners out there, I doubt that comes as a surprise. So it comes with great sadness that our sweet Cooper has crossed the Rainbow Bridge to doggie Heaven. Coop was fine one day, and the next day he was...

  5. Goodbye Jack! The Man of My Dreams

    Rainbow Bridge Grief Support Section
    Friday, August 7, 2015 will be the day! The day I will, with heavy heart, say goodbye to my amazing 12 yr old Golden Retriever, Jack! We lost his sister Annie a year ago last February, to cancer. I have dreaded this day, and prolonged it as long as I can. Maybe I have held on to him for me, but...

    Other Pets
    Hi everyone. I have posted a few times about our beloved Golden, Bart, who passed away in July of 2013, aged 18. Well, we suffered another more recent loss that is just as painful. Homer (what can I say, I got to pick the names, and I LOVED the Simpsons when I was a kid... :p:) was our...

    This is my little Miss Suzy Sunshine. It breaks my heart that we had to send her on her grand adventure last week. She was such a sweet and gentle golden girl and gave me more than 12 years of unconditional love.
  12. My Goldens - 2 out of 3 died from cancer

    Rainbow Bridge Grief Support Section
    I found this site because my Max died on 12/14/2013. I took him to the vet on 11/5/2013 for what I thought was a bad tooth since he didn't seem to want to chew his "cookies". That cancer word came up and within days he went from being happy and bouncy, to hanging on to death door. I hadn't even...

    My husband and I are currently stationed with the US military in South Korea. This place is NOTHING like home, but the fact that we brought our beloved fur-baby, Jax out here helped to make this place feel like it. I got Jax in College and my husband "adopted" him once we got married. We don't...

    Golden Retriever Rainbow Bridge
    It's been almost two full weeks since we had to put down my best friend, Bono. He had breathing problems and we all knew it had to be done. The first few days was extremely hard, many tears shed and nights spent awake thinking of how we could have done things differently, but then it all seemed...
  17. Day Two

    Golden Retriever Rainbow Bridge
    It's day two and I still ache the way I did yesterday when we had to put my best friend to sleep. He was 12, and although his life was not "cut short" by any means, I hurt so bad without him. Adjusting to life is so difficult. I can't look at my house the same or without thinking of how he used...

    My best friend was put to sleep today. It's been 12 hours since it's happened and I'm an emotional wreck. I cry every 20 minutes and can't come to terms with it. I miss him so so so so so much. It hurts so bad. Please are there any tips for making the transition from having a pet to not having...
