This page on our Website is dedicated to all of the wonderful dogs who have shared our lives and have now crossed over the bridge and are waiting for us to join them.

                                                                      Smack Dab's  Renatta Jazz CGC, CDX.  
We lost Renatta at the age of 14 years and 8 months.  She was a wonderful companion, great obedience dog and helped us for many years in our training program. She is greatly missed.
We lost our sweet little Kelsey at the age of approximately 18 years of age.   She was a treasured member of our family for 13 of those 18 years.  She is so greatly missed by us. 
Rainbow Bridge
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 the 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 of 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 meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted from 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. cross the rainbow bridge together.....
