Otis @ Rainbow Bridge

Otis. 9 years, 11 months. Loved to go for daily car rides. Died 02/07/17. You loved to go for daily rides and taking me to my medical appointments, I thank you for that. You made us laugh and comforted us. From your big, dorky, floppy ears as puppy, to mastering getting ice out of the door of the freezer, to your love of tooth paste… out of the sink (we never judged), to you getting a WHOLE rotisserie chicken off the counter, quiet like a ninja, out the doggie door, to enjoying your ribbons of the holiday on your collar, to getting weighed at the vet’s office… and enjoying it, to comforting me after my biopsy, to getting a stuffed animal from Houston each time I had a cancer check-up.

We will NEVER forget you and will keep our promise to you of taking you for a ride every day. We miss you terribly, Old Boy Otis. Please send us sign you’re still around. 🌈

If you know the owner, or you or someone else you know has lost a pet to Rainbow Bridge, maybe consider a Buddy Memorial Pin which you can get through our Online Store?

You may also find words of comfort in my Rainbow Bridge poems The Rainbow Bridge and A Single Tear.

Love and hugs to those waiting at Rainbow Bridge, and the owners who will reunite with them one day. Remember, at Rainbow Bridge, it’s not goodbye, it’s see you later.

I am a father, a husband and a dog owner. Like many of you, I love my pets and they are treated as family members. On saying that, if you ask my wife, the order is dogs, daughter and then me but hey, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I write about pet ownership with a slant towards pet loss. Whilst that may sound incredibly depressing to some, I want to focus more on why our pets are so important, the effect they have on our lives and the wonderful memories they create for us. I have been a qualified hypnotherapist since 1999 hence the many references to self-hypnosis as a method of dealing with the pain of pet loss. I know this works so I hope you will give it a try. Please contribute to the success of this website by commenting, liking and sharing. I know this is a community which will spread far and wide, bringing comfort and relief to the many thousands of readers who experience the heartache of pet loss.

This community thrives on comments from people just like you like. Please leave a few words for others to respond to.
