Brandachs Oreo Cookie

CKC  Miniature Long Haired Dachshund  (May 31/1997 - November 22/2011
Oreo came to live with us on March 14/2003.  
She was a wonderful dog that traveled most places with us. We are honored to have been able
to have Oreo for her retirement years but wish that she could have stayed with us longer.  

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors.
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge, there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place.

There is always food and water, and warm Spring weather. Those old and frail animals are young again. Those
who have been maimed are made whole again.

They play all day with each other. But there is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person
who loved them on earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing
and looks up. The nose twitches, the ears are up, the eyes are staring, and this one suddenly runs from the
group.

You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her in your arms and
embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting
pet. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.

There’s something missing in our home, we feel it day & night,

We know it will take time and strength, before things feel quite right,

But just for now, we need to mourn, our hearts - they need to mend

Though some may say "it’s just a pet",  we know we've lost a friend

You have brought such laughter to our home, and richness to our days...

A constant friend through joy or loss, with gentle loving ways,

Companion, pal, and confidante, a friend we won't forget,

You’ll live for always in our hearts, Our sweet forever "Oreo Cookie".
