Every now and then a dog that we have placed in another home still remains part of our extended family, forever. This is not necessarily because of incredible performance or conformation titles, nor is it because the dog is used for breeding, but it is simply because some dogs just stay close to our hearts. In short; this kind of dog symbolize the epitome of a what we feel a Kyon golden retriever pet should be.
Duoghal was just such a dog; kind, dignified and bright- always willing to please, always content to take life in stride. It was therefore with sadness that we, this past February, received the news that he was gone.
Thank you, Kim and Brad Hull, for keeping in touch with us, through the past 14 years – and for thus allowing us to stay connected to Duoghal!
His owners explained the loss of this very special dog best:
“After a wonderful long life of providing support, companionship, and endless hours of joy and laughter, we quietly let Duoghal go this evening. Although he will be deeply deeply missed, we are incredibly thankful and extremely fortunate to have had him as part of our family for so many years.”
The Rainbow Bridge
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. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.
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 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.
