The Rainbow Bridge

This page is dedicated to all the prescious angels who have gone before us.  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.... Author unknown...

Jackson came to Lucky Star in 2011 as a 4 year old boy. He was adopted and loved by his Mom Roberta and lived in Kentucky with his sister cavalier. Roberta let us know today that Jackson passed away a few weeks ago from congestive heart failure. He was a beautiful boy and will be missed by his Mommy.


Elvis was the first owner turn in I ever fostered. His family was moving and could not take him along. He waited for them by the door every day. It broke my heart. Then a wonderful family asked to adopt him. From the moment they arrived at my house Elvis claimed them as his own. For 5 years he was the king of their family. Two other Lucky Star girls joined him as well. Today, May 9th his family told me that Elvis passed away. We are all heartbroken over the loss of this wonderful boy. He had a good life and we were enriched by loving him. That comforts us.

Brianna (aka Lucky Star Farrah) went to the Rainbow Bridge, December 14, 2018. Much loved by her family and her cavalier siblings. You were such a good girl Bree.


Got this note today from Mary M, one of our adopters who has given a wonderful home to several Lucky Star rescues. Her Desi crossed the Rainbow bridge on August 8, 2018.  He would have celebrated his 13th birthday on September 5.  She adopted Desi at age 5-6 months of age as he had been surrendered to Lucky Star due to pulmonic stenosis.  Fortunately, it was a low graded one and did not require surgery or medication.  Desi absolutely loved life and everyone he met.  Mary said that she must admit that Desi had more friends than she would ever have.  Desi loved to go for long walks where he could explore and enjoy all of those wonderful smells.  As most Cavaliers, Desi developed MVD and 3 years ago went on the heart medication.

 I know he was greeted at the bridge by Tulip and Annabelle (Lucky Star) as well as Bailey, Oliver, Bijou, Lily, Mimi, and Dorothy.  I am forever grateful to Toni Webb for allowing Desi to share my life.  Rest in peace sweet boy until we meet again.

Jake (LS Thaddeus)
Jake was about ten months old when we drove to West Virginia and picked him up from his foster parents. He was quite timid but fit in well with our little pack, another Cav named Cricket, and a terrier cross named Blondie. We took Jake along with us to horse shows up and down the east coast where everyone who saw him made a big fuss over him, and soon his timidness was gone. He traveled all over with us and was the best little companion you could ask for. He was diagnosed with MVD at about 7 and was helped by medications for about a year and a half, then he started to struggle even with the best of care. Our wonderful vet came to our house and we laughed and cried while we talked about Jake as he was gently put to sleep. He was so sweet. He was laid to rest in our back yard with two of our departed Cavaliers. He is sorely missed
