Our home in the Oregon Cascades, provides us with peaceful days, and star-filled nights. We are grateful for fresh air, clean water, and enough space for our garden.

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....

The next few posts cover ten years of our lives loving Miss Flora (Hungarian Kuvasz) We did the homework to find the right breed for us.

We were blessed to find Miss Flora, living with her littermates and her Mama in a barn with small goats, rabbits and chickens as her first playmates.

At PeaceMealGarden Flora missed her brothers and sisters, but she grew up fast.

Every single day Flora worked hard to guard her friends and family. She never forgot you, once you were part of her flock. You would never get lost, and no one could ever harm you if Flora was by your side.

This intuitive Being gave us her unconditional love. Flora's wise and well-considered guardianship kept us all safe.

She was an astounding creature and we are honored to have known her. If you want to see a slideshow of Miss Flora's Happy Life, click the link:
