When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that animal goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows & 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 & comfortable.
All of the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health & 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 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.....
TOBY - a part of our Heartland family since early 2008, our little Yorkshire Terrier Toby was as sweet as can be. I could probably count with my fingers the times we were lucky enough to get a kiss from him as he preferred to gently paw at your face or sniff at it gently.....like butterfly kisses! He loved being outside in our yard and was known to be our peeping tom because of his favorite past time of peeping through the spaces in our privacy fence. More often then not he almost always had to take a toy outside with him. Another favorite memory of Toby was his famous "stomp"......when he barked while standing still his front paw stomped with each bark as if he was demanding your attention.
The heavens cried right along with us as we said goodbye to Toby during a short thunderstorm, and afterwards a rainbow appeared letting us know that he had made it to rainbow bridge and would be there waiting for us. We loved you so much while you were here with us . . . . . . and we always and forever will .
Rest in Peace Toby 9/28/2007 - 7/2/2019
Heartland Biewer Terrier's 1st Angel -
They say if you are a breeder it is bound to happen sometime, but nothing can EVER prepare you for the heartache & helplessness you will feel when it does..............in our lives for just 5 short days, but forever in our hearts.
Camie presented us with our "E" litter on February 10, 2015. She gave birth to 4 beautiful puppies! Sadly, the last pup to enter the world was stillborn. I named this sweet soul "Emanuel" which means "God is with us".
RIP sweet Emanuel; you will be forever & always in our hearts.
Seeing how big this beautiful boy was on the x-ray image, a c-section was planned for the safety of this pup, his siblings, and their mama (Camie). Sadly fate had different plans for him and his life here with us would last only a very short time after his birth. There was no rhyme or reason that we could see as to why he (the largest pup in the litter of three) did not wake up & thrive after being brought into the world. Sleep well sweet boy, to wake up in Gods loving care.
This precious boy from our "G" litter lived only a short while after being delivered by c-section. Though in our lives for such a short time, he was loved from the moment we met him.......and from that moment, had a piece of our hearts forever. Rest in peace sweet GOLIATH, and run free at rainbow bridge.
1993 - 2007
Not a Yorkie, but he was our first furry family member. It was my kids that discovered Alfie, through a teacher at their school. We brought him into our home in January 1994 & his gentle nature, playfulness, and eagerness to learn made him a wonderful addition to our family. He was just like one of the kids and was included in all the holiday family festivities, including dressing up in costume every Halloween. In November 2007, just after turning 14 years old, it was Alfie's time to go to Rainbow Bridge. To this day, Alfie is still remembered with love.
AKC Lovely Little LEXIE
2006 - 2018
Lexie was our first female Yorkie; retired from breeding and living with a family in Oklahoma since 2008. On May 30, 2018 I heard news of her passing, and even though Lexie has not been here with us for many years the news of her death brought tears to my eyes & sobs from my heart, because no matter how long or how far away; once a Heartland family member, always a Heartland family member.
