Golden Retriever CandyFeb. 12, 1985 – March 6, 2000

Candy was out of a very special bitch that John imported from England about 25 years ago. Her name was FTCH AFTCH Osmington Anya. He bred Anya to FC NAFC Topbrass Cotton and kept his beloved Candy.

Candy has now joined Rainbow Bridge we will miss her immensely….

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When a beloved pet dies , 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 special friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who have been ills 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, someone who was left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and look into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, 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 those trusting eyes, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together…
