We dedicate this page to our beloved dogs who have retired, moved to new homes or "graduated" to pet heaven. These personalities influence and enrich our lives, so it is fitting they receive tribute for their love and companionship.

The Rainbow Bridge

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 vigor. 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....

She was the love of Lonnie’s life and our house dog. She was called to the Lord in February 2014 and has been missed and still very much loved. She was the eternal fetch dog and would go after anything and everything tirelessly.

Zoe

Zoe is now part of a breeding program located in Eastern Washington.

Autumn will remain the "reigning queen" here at Aspenrainfields, but she will be relieved of her motherly duties. She has produced some incredible pups, and lucky are the people who have them. She remains a devoted companion, and oversees the daily activities, even if from her comfy place on the back of the leather chair by the window.

Noel - Noel is Lonnie's nighttime lap dog and is with him in the easy chair. She appears to be a dog with an old soul – one who is totally in tune with their owners and surroundings.

Ritzy was recently purchased as an adult and adjusted very well into her new environment. She gets along with everyone and is very "low key" and super, super sweet. She shows excitement by jumping and shaking herself at the same time. Comical but yet very cute. She too loves her cuddle time and yet can be independent finding her own entertainment to occupy her time. Not aggressive in any way and quite the obedient and easy going gal. Looking forward to pups from her. Awesome temperament. Good bone on heavier side.

Cash comes to us via Louisiana and has stolen the hearts of every one who meets him. Children and adults adore his patience and loving attitude. He gets along well and helps to train our younger dogs and pups. Another super gentle boy with caring attitude. Nothing bothers him and very much a "go with the flow" dog. Trained very easily and learns quickly. Cash is very thick with nice bone structure along with the softest fur coat ever. We are looking forward his future pups and his addition to our program. He has excellent background lines for championship qualities. Stunning minimal blue merle.
