    Cheyanne passed away September of 2007. She was the best dog I had growing up and I miss her so much. In some ways Bamm reminds me of her. Maybe that's why I ended up taking him home when I met him. Today Bamm helps me to remember a very special dog who helped me get through some of the toughest times in my life. Rest in peace sweet Cheyanne. You are surely missed.

    Here's the poem that's in her shadow box. I wrote it the day she died.

    As you race across the rainbow bridge
    Dipped in blossoms of yellow gold
    Promise that you will never forget
    As our memories all come unfold

    Lived many an adventure; that we did
    And many adventures we've still to see
    Though you're gone, it won't be long
    We'll run together again, you and me

    Chase butterflies in your eternity
    As you roll in blades of dew
    Lie down in cool shades; fall to dreams
    Of squeak toys and candied chews

    I remember the day I first saw you
    A tiny soaking wet ball of fur
    Mom said she'd prefer to get a boy
    But we kids soon convinced her

    She fell in love with you, same as I
    You were the best of all my friends
    It's times like this when I can't believe
    You're truly gone; here comes the end

    I will never forget your spinning dance
    Nor forget your puppy face tease
    You were my little athletic jumper
    Came over the rails with quite ease

    Those nights when I couldn't fall asleep
    You nestled beside me; stayed near
    I knew that no matter what happened
    You'd protect me from every fear

    I know you're in a better place now
    To run free and dance in skies
    Time to store memories and let you go
    I'm not very good with goodbyes

    As you race across the rainbow bridge
    Kissed with cotton candy clouds
    You'll always be in my heart Cheyanne
    My best friend; you've made me proud

    I remember when you lost her . We never have a clone , but I feel new ones pick up the vibes . I miss so many of my Goldens .....but even Ollie who isn't pure Golden or connected to my crew reminds me of all .
