Today I say good-bye
To a special friend
So sad am I
That it comes to an end

Your beauty and power
A true mark of perfection
You always had time
For a hug and affection

We were together in good times
And together in bad
Always-high spirits whether
I was happy or sad

The times we played
And the times we walked
Sometimes we ran
And sometimes we talked

Bold and brave
From the very start
You lived at full speed
No quit in your heart

Always on you
I could depend
Ready on guard
Prepared to defend

About a true friend
It's true what they say
You knew me the most
And loved me anyway

So today I say thank you
I love all you have been

I shall never forget you

My forever faithful

Special friend

Yellow Dog (YD), 10/22/91-01/23/03

Dear sweet YD,

You were the light of my life for more than 10 years. Everyone who met you loved you; your soft brown eyes were so welcoming, trusting, caring. I'll always love you, Yellow Dog, and every time I'm at the beach, in Golden Gate Park, or enjoying the breeze on a crisp San Francisco day, I'll think of you and know you're with me.

I hope by now you've found Ruff, Nutsy, Abby, Celis, Harpo, Chupie, Tumble, Thunder, Woof, and Cotton. Because there has to be a heaven for dogs.

Yipe, 08/11/94-01/18/03

Yipe: You've only been gone 2 days, but I miss you sooooo much. From jumping on the bed at night, to going out 3 times in 15 minutes in the AM. to just nudging me with your gentle nose to be petted. Your never going to be forgotten. The house seems so empty without you. Your Buddy!


Yippie, 11/14/92-6/10/03

Yippie was a very brave girl; she was full of energy and had a real zest for life. As a rescued greyhound, she truly was grateful for her new life; love flowed forth from her. I will always remember her as our "velcro" girl -- she would attach herself to your thigh and follow you all over the house. She brought joy to our life and she will be very missed. I love you sweetie girl! We'll be looking for you!


Yiya Maria Mansfield, 11/09/96-01/27/03

We will love you forever, mom, dad and Valentino


Yoda, 05/31/01-11/03/03

My dearest Yoda.. you were taken from me before it was your time to go.
You were my first cat and will always hold a special place in my heart.
You will be dearly missed by everyone whose life you've touched. Until we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.. know that you are greatly loved and will never be forgotten.

Yoda, 11/07/00-10/09/03

Mommy misses you terribly.

Vicki Kline


Yoda, 6/13/03

Yoda was the smallest of the litter of 5. We had him only 5 days but he quickly grew to be my little pal. He was my favorite one and the quietest but loved to sit on my tummy while I pet him and kissed him. He died along with his brother Lil Feet today at the vet's after being rushed to the emergency last night and given a catheter for feeding. But he was too far gone. My little baby was the sweetest most gentle little furbie and only weight 12 oz. He will always be with me forever and ever.


Yoda, 05/06/03

Yoda was adopted at the age of 3-4-or 5 and from the minute he entered our lives he gave us joy. The words "we miss him" do not seem to cover the host of feelings we had for my little old man.

Yoda Maccabee, 07/16/84-08/29/02

I lost my Siamese, Yoda Maccabee, to illness in August 2002. I took care of him for 12 years. He was a very special, magic cat! He was very clever, very affectionate, and had a very strong will. I will never get over his passing. The only solace that I have is that I will be with him again in the Afterlife. I miss you so much Yoda! I love you forever Yoda!!! - Elspeth


Yodi, 07/16/03

God's special kitty. A kitty so special that God wanted her to be an angel to watch over someone very special. We love you and we know your spirit is here. God bless you Angel Yodi girl. Love, Mommy and Charlie Dog.


Yogi, 10/19/97-11/18/03

We Will Miss you So Much Yogi

Terry and Kathy


Yogi, 09/01/89-04/04/03

Dear Yogi:

It's been seven months since you went to Rainbow Bridge and I still have not been able to get over losing you. I miss you so much that I cry every day for you. You were my baby and you always will be. I remember how I brought you home as a puppy, how we went to training school together and how much you were an important part of my life. You gave so much love and all you ever asked for was a few treats in return. You taught me alot about life...compassion, patience, and love. You are and always will be "Mama's little boy", our "Angel in fur". I'm so happy to know you are free from pain now, it just hurts to know you had to leave me in order for this to happen. I know your watching over your dad and I. And we hope you are having fun with the squirrels and your big pool. Always remember, that no matter what, you are and always will be #1 forever.

I love you and miss you terribly.....Diane


Yogi, 04/01/91-05/09/03

Yogi, you were the best brother to Blush and best cat to Cynthia, Frank, Nicholas and Brendan and Karen. You were best cousin to Little Man, Lily & Camus. We'll always love you and miss you.


Yogi, 09/01/89-04/04/03

Yogi, we were blessed to have been given the opportunity to know you for 13.5 wonderful years. Your eleven pounds consisted of equal parts heart and sweetness. Your mother and I miss you dearly but are comforted in remembering the funny things you did and the love you gave. We hope the Bridge has a nice pool for you and plenty of bad little squirrels. Some day, we will find a new dog to love but your position will always be number one... Until we meet again our little "Angel in Fur"

Tim and Diane

Yogi, 04/01/88-03/10/03

Yogi was the best friend that I have ever had. We went through many major life changes in our fourteen years since I adopted him as a young adult cat. We did everything together in our time together. We shared traveling (over 16,000 miles), divorce, dating, a new marriage, meals and snacks, morning coffee clotches, loss of significant humans, illnesses, kittie cousins, and so much more. In all of the very best and worst of times, we prevailed together. Yogi, I will meet you at the Rainbow Bridge when my time comes. Love you always & forever, Mom.


Yogi Bear, 11/22/03

Yogi is a special friend who always seemed like he was a special soul in a cat's body. His brother Boo Boo was killed in an RTA in 1994 and they were the best of friends sleeping together paws over each other. Both of them used to sleep on my bed and Yogi would rest his chin on my head and I would hear the deep purrs as he gradually went off to sleep. Whenever, I thought of him, or was upset, angry at something, or simply needing a friend he would appear. He would rub his chin against my face and put his head under my chin, his face taking on a kitten appearance. All who have known Yogi and me have agreed that Yogi and I had a special bond unlike anything they have ever seen. I would have given my life for him, the depth of my love for him cannot be expressed in words and will be everlasting. When I took him and his brother in as rescue cats I never thought of my self as a cat person but over the years they have arrived at the door and been taken in....my husband says that Yogi would want me to continue caring for all those living here now and for the others yet to come. At this moment all I wish to do is join Yogi at Rainbow's Bridge. He bore his illness with all the dignity that he was renowned for. His calm and wise demeanour belied a cat that was the ultimate in mousing and ratting. He even came home once with a wild rabbit in his mouth-it was half the size of him and still alive! Yet this little man could show gentleness and affection that gave you a warm and sure feeling that all was right with the world. He used to come for walks with me and always on the homeward stretch he would run ahead with his legs kicking out at the back and tail held high with the little curl at the tip-a sign of such joy. If I went away he would sulk for a few hours until my cuddles would win him over and his chin rubs against my face. There are many memories after 17 years. I hope the following words can endeavour to describe the love I feel and the tribute I pay Yogi and thank him for all his life with me. My Angel,... My Soulmate,.. My Little Man,... My "Tuppence",.. My "Poppet " Man,...My Friend. .....You will always be in my heart - until we meet again on that joyous day. Linda


Yorick, 1982-08/87

Hello, dear Yorick; are you with your beloved Kyli-Rho again, at last? I pray you are. How you two baybeez loved each other. We never saw one of you without the other. You were so sweet to behold together. If Heaven be kind, you're cuddling now. But please don't exclude little Gussafang. He loves Kyli, too. Cuddle each other until we meet again, dear lovely Yorick.

Katharine


Yorkie, 08/20/03

Our hearts are heavy,
Our tears do flow,
But, to the Rainbow Bridge
you had to go..
Someday we will meet you there and our
hearts will be light..
But for now Dearest Yorkie,
we must say goodbye...
We Love and Miss you very much..

Diana, David & Brandie Murray


Yoshi, 6/8/95-9/26/02

Yoshi was my best friend for a little over 2 years. He was taken from me by the disease known as West Nile. He fought it valiantly for a rough, traumatic week before he passed on. Yoshi was and continues to be my inspiration. He was the thorn that pricked and hurt, but drew forth love and hope. He will forever be in the wind... And I hope that his days are now filled with the same happiness and freedom that I tried to give him. So long, my friend. Until we meet again...


Yoshi Bera Wente, 08/01/92-08/14/03

Yoshi Bera Wente, creature of goodness, peacefully departed from her family November 14, 2003 and entered the kingdom of heaven.
We love you little sunshine creature!

Love mommy, daddy and baby sister

Yoshi B'goshi, 01/03/94-04/04/03

Yoshi....you are sadly missed but you will always be that golden light in our hearts.
Your the greatest best friend!


You, 08/01/03

My sweetest baby You, You are without a doubt, the most incredible baby ever. With your snoring, drooling, and even anal gland problem- there was never a dull moment when we were together. My home and life will never be the same without your sweetness and love. I love you forever and ever...


Young Man Oreo, 12/11/03

Dear Oreo... you deserved so much better. You were a sweet boy up until the very end, and the most beautiful boy I have ever seen. Your black little nose and sparkling green eyes were always full of love. I wish we had rescued you sooner, and you could have had a longer happy life with us than you did. I know you are in heaven now, and please wait for us: we will see you when we get there. I hope to get all those hugs and kisses we were denied from you on this earth. We hope that maybe some people might learn a lesson from this and make sure their cats have shots and vet care so that your pain will not have been in vain. Love with all our hearts...forever and always your friends Laura and Bill Baker

Yo Yo Representing, 01/01/86-05/22/03

I never realized how much I think of yo yo - not me thinking about her now because of what has happened but in my regular subconscious routines...just coming to work I find myself thinking of her by looking at things around my work area which for one reason or another remind me to remember to feed her when I get home, or I look out the window and think, I'll go outside with her when I get home, it's such a beautiful day, or "oh no...did I close her into a closet!?.. or the family picture of us at the pink house - how I know she is crashed on the brown office chair in the kitchen...how I wonder what she's doing, how I hope she's being good and not making a mess or a stink...how I worry she may not have water to drink and then how I am always relieved when I realize she can live off of shower or sink drippings uneventfully as she has for years...

Yukon, 03/02/94-02/04/97

Yukon was just a little Doberman puppy when we got him. I was only three but I still remember that day. I loved him so much, and I still do. He didn't die but we had to put him to sleep when he bit my step dad. He was only protecting me and my mom. The next day I went to work with my mom and my step dad was supposed to pick me up and when he did Yukon was in the back seat .I thought he was sleeping but when we got home and we buried him I knew what happened. Yukon will never be forgotten an we will always miss him. I love you Yukon.

Yuri, 04/01/99-11/21/03

Today...it is raining in my heart.

I haven't been able to post, it is so hard to see through the rain. I think I'm ok and I think too much and it pours again. My Little Old Man Yuri is sleeping under the big sycamore tree in our new back yard. He was left at a pound because he was too old to play like the young scooters and hoppers. We met Yuri at one of our ferret club meetings and he just had to come home with us. The club and I had been told he was 3 or 4 when we got him, but my vet said he was more like 5 or 6. He has been with us for almost 2 years so he was probably 6 or 7. Yuri was a sweetie with an adorable face and would give me a face bath instead of kisses. He had gastric ulcers and an enlarged spleen which both were kept under control believe it or not with 2 small doses a day of maximum strength pepto bismol. He loved his chicken gravy because kibble hurt his teeth and made his tummy upset. He went downhill Thursday evening, and I couldn't hardly get him to eat or take fluids. He was telling his mommy that he was tired and that he needed to sleep. He lost the use of his back legs and his body functions later that night. I had him in a little box beside my bed so I could keep him clean and warm and comfy through the night with several bedding changes. The girls and I had already discussed letting him rest if he made it through the night. He went so quickly after the nice vet checked him out and gave him the shot. I have had cats and dogs all my life, but I never dreamed how much these little creatures latch on to a piece of your heart. Goodbye my sweet little long man, your mommie loves you and misses you very much.
