One year ago today…

Sadly, it was a year ago today that we lost our beloved Mister D (a.k.a. Deo)… At the ripe ole age of 14 1/2 years (that’s 101.5 dog years) — Mister D passed away peacefully.

Though we would have LOVED for him to be a part of our new adventure… he passed just two days before we left Sydney for the big drive North. Deo had looked after us long enough. He was da bestest dog ever (thanks for remembering him Joy, Vic, Susan).


We enjoyed every day which was made sweeter with Mister D. He was part of our pack for well over 12 years — yet it was time to let him go to Rainbow Bridge…. we trust we’ll see you again Mister D. Love you always!




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 Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigour. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days 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 be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together…

  1. Dear old Deo, the photo makes me a little "emo". I was lucky enough to be his "mum" for the later stages of his life – a great privilege – while his dads were overseas. He stole my heart. Deo & Jett (his buddy) will be waiting for us at The Bridge. RIP Deo & Jett.
