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 much!
Chuck and Joni

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.
