I am crying as a write this even though nearly
six months have passed since we said our final
goodbyes to Nala, this picture was taken just
an hour or so before her death.
"Nala The Wonder Dog" aka "Jojo
Wong", leaves her paralyzed body after
ten years and forty-one days and
finally runs free...no longer is her spirit
locked inside her broken body. She was my best
friend and my angel. She inspired me to change
careers at 40 and create this company. I honor
her memory, her strong spirit, her will to carry
on and her love of life. We all could learn
so much from our animals should we take the
time to be still and really listen.
This is a picture of her final resting place.
It is where the Moclips river flows into the
Pacific Ocean in Moclips, WA bordering the Quinault
Indian Reservation. If you look closely, you
can see a drift wood cross tied together with
a piece of seaweed next to her remains as she
floated out to sea...
On a side note and in true stubborn terrier
fashion and against all odds, "Nala the
wonder dog" stayed there for
two more days! This was truly amazing to us
all as the
tides come in about 20 to 30 feet!
Our Baby Girl! Such a joy! We will always
cherish the time we shared together!
Chuck and Joni
We miss you dearly. We know that Rusty misses
you. You were a special dog!
Douglas and Barbara
We will never forget you.
You were always a good boy and we love you very

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. Their bright eyes are intent.
Their eager body quivers. Suddenly, they begin
to run from the group, flying over the green
grass, with legs carrying them 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, never
to be separated again.
