Tigger - Summer 1999

TIGGER - Ours-His First Show(1990)

Tigger (Cdn Ch Mankia's Simba Wa Bara Hindi) was bought as a pet, but little did we know what lay ahead.  He introduced us to the world of dog shows and led us on a merry chase through life.  He will be much missed.  Sleep well, old friend.


Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal

dies that has been especially close to someone here,

that pet goes to the Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so that they can run

and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our

friends there are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and

old are restored to perfect health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed

are made whole and strong again just as we remember them in our dreams of

years 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 stay

behind when the beloved pet went away.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops

and looks up -- the bright eyes are intent, the body quivers. Suddenly he

begins to run from the group his body flying over the green grass, his legs

hurrying faster and faster. You have been spotted, when you and your

special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be

parted again. The sweet loving kisses rain upon your face, your hands again

caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of

your dear pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.
