Honey's Rainbow

A beautiful Rainbow Bridge for Honey! We so miss that little golden face! Thank you Bella, Craig, Bodie & Doyle

Huge hugs and thanks to our wonderful friends and neighbors, Sammie Golden, her mom and dad. They have been right there with us for parkie times, Honey care, advise, support and hugs!
On today's post, there is a wonderful video of Honey:
Special thanks and hugs to grandpeep, Cam, who made a card, and sat with Honey when she was visiting their home.

Amazing support from The Bumpass Hounds for their advice and thoughts through this time. We have read your emails over and over.
Thank you to The 'Splorin' Wolfies for the post on excerpts from Eugene O'Neils dog.

An excerpt from a poem Checkers sent to us by Alice E. Chase:

"I will miss you little friend,
For I could never measure
The happiness you brought me,
The comfort and the pleasure.
And since God put you here to share
In earthly joy and sorrow;
I'm sure there'll be a place for you
In Heaven's bright tomorrow...

We are so grateful to everyone for their support and wonderful comments. We appreciate all the mentions on sites. We will miss Honey, she was such a special, sweet pal.
Our eyes will be wet for some time, but we are celebrating her with memories and photos.

Please give all of your furry loves huge hugs from us! They are so special and bring so much joy.


  1. Thank woo fur pawmitting her to be a part of lives...

    Even though she's not physikhally still here, she IS here!

    Or as furiend of my mom's wrote in a song "I feel her here"


  2. We loved the rainbow! Sammie's slideshow is very special too - great memories of happy times.
    We have noticed we are actually getting more hugs so we have Honey to thank for that.

  3. we know you miss her - but she is alwyas in your heart - so take comfort from the times you spent together

  4. It must be so incredibly hard. Honey is looking out for you!

    Run with the wind, Honey!



  5. I know it may be impossible for you to even imagine, but there will come a time when another golden will enter your life for you to love and to share your home.

    You'll bring that dog home and when you least expect it...there will be a familiar jingle of collar tags and a shadow around the corner you can't quite place...until you realize that it was Honey who led you, gently, but firmly to find your new friend.

    With her final earthly task completed, she will return to the Bridge to wait for you, her best friend, to spend eternity together.

  6. We just read what Mimi wrote and we started crying all over again!
    We love you guys and not a day goes by that we don't think of you!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  7. We borrowed the Rainbow Bridge picture and put it on our sidebar too. It is very pretty and a sweet tribute to your beautiful Honey.

  9. What a nice tribute for Honey. Honey had a wonderful life and it was mutual. She helped make you the kind people you are today.


  10. My mom is leaking a lot....Honey reminds her of her barkers who are now waiting at the Rainbow Bridge...especially one...Zac. He was very special like your Honey.

    In your hearts, as well as these electronic pages, you have lots of memories - not only for yourselves, but for all of those who loved Honey ...

    Keeping you in our thoughts always,

  15. When I first visited Honey's blog I fell in love with her picture at the top of the page. It made me feel happy. I soon learned it wasn't the picture that made me smile it was Honey herself.

  16. A lovely tribute and a lovely rainbow for a special dog. Honey certainly was well loved. Hope you'll take comfort in that.

  17. Hello - this is the other Honey (Honey the Great Dane) - I only just heard - so sorry I am late! I just wanted to come and give some slobbers and say how sorry I am to hear about the lovely Honey...I am sure she is happy and well again and waiting for you by the Bridge...

    I am so sorry I didn't have a chance to get to know Honey before she went but I can tell from all the comments and pictures and mentions that she was a very special girl who touched everyone's heart.

    Honey the Great Dane

  18. Yes, I agree, she may be gone but never forgotten. If it's okay, I'd also like to borrow your lovely rainbow for my sidebar as a dedication to Honey for all to see. Please let me know if that's okay.


  19. No words can express it. She lived well, loved well and will be missed.

  20. That's a very nice rainbow for Honey. You will miss her and you will keep shedding tears. Those tears starts out as sad but trust me, it will become happy, comforting tears as time goes by. I still think of Cody(my first golden) from time to time and still shed a little tears from time to time and that was almost 10 years ago.

  21. We were gone over the weekend and just now read your news. We are so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing Honey with us. She will always be remembered. Our prayers are with you as you wade through these days of grieving. We know how much it hurts and how difficult it is.

  22. We are so sorry for your loss. We are going to miss her.

    Run free Honey. We are going to miss you.

    Homer and family.

  23. We hope you are both OK - we are thinking of you xx

  24. We'll never forget Honey. That's a promise.

  25. What a beautiful dog you are honey! Reading your lovely memorial post has brought new tears to my already red eyes. You and my Charlie are certain to be together, running over the bridge now.

    many hugs and lots of love,
    Charlie's lonely human

  26. You will be missed beautiful girl. Rest well.

    There is a Bridge connecting Heaven & Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of it's many colors. Just this side of the 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. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.
    There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly looks up! The nose twitches. The ears are up. The eyes are staring. And this one suddenly runs from their group.
    You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.
    Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.

  29. My Mommy has been praying for y'all & y'all have been in my snuggles. I am so sorry for your loss. We loves y'all!

  30. Team 3 Dawg Flite is so sorry to hear about Honey, but we know she is running free and happy now. She was a beautiful dog and such a sweetheart and I'm sure a most dear companion.
    RIP, Honey. Love, Sally

  31. God bless,- just remember Honey will always be with you.

  32. We just heard about Honey going to the Bridge, and we want you to know that we are sending you love and hugs. Honey obviously knew she was one very loved girl. We're so glad she found you and you all found her to share your lives together. We hope your tears are are sprinkled generously with bouts of belly laughter and smiles as you think of your Honey Girl!

    Run like the WIND, Honey!

    Goober love,
    Stanley & Lisa

  33. Hello~
    I found your blog from Adventures of Harry.
    I'm so deeply sorry for your loss and know that this is a difficult time for all.
    I also lost my pal Hershey, of 12 years on Feb. 22, 2009. Hershey was everything to me. Not a day, a minute goes by that I don't think and miss him still. Reading about Honey made me cry-cry for you, Honey, Hershey and the pain of losing a pet (family member). But one thing that makes me feel better is that he is out of pain in a much better place.
    I now poor even more love on my other boy, Yager, who will be 8 on July 1st.
    Again, I'm deeply sorry for your loss.
    Hugs, Gayla

    Joey and Zeke
