RAINBOW BRIDGE: Last Update: Newport Corner, Hants Co., NS — Chihuahua, Male, ~ 1 Yrs Old — “Bently”


RAINBOW BRIDGE:  Sept. 19, 2012:  It’s official, Bentley has been found and has passed away.   From the Owner: “We want to Thank everyone for all the help and support. We finally found his little body, a couple of young men hit him and tried to find his owners 🙁 at least now we know what happened 🙁 rip Bently, you were so loved ♥”  We are sorry to have had to put the owners through this confusion, however, it did lead to finding Bentley though, and we are very grateful to the folks that did all they could to make that happen.  Our sincere and heartfelt condolences go to Bentley’s family.  (9.16.12 – 9.17.12)

UPDATE: September 19, 2012 – STILL MISSING:  Although it was reported here that Bentley had passed away, so far there is no evidence of this and the owners are still asking for our help.  Apparently, an unidentified woman reported him being dead on the road to the local vet, however, no contact info was left and there was no evidence of this in the location she suggested.  Could this person have picked up Bentley and just left a call into the Vets to get the owners off her trail?  Or if this is true about Bentley being hit by a car, would this person please come forward again and clarify so the owners may have some peace through resolution.  If anyone has noticed a neighbour, friend, or family member with a “new” dog matching Bentley’s description, could they please follow through and find out more details.  This may be a matter for the RCMP to investigate.  Dogs are our Property in Canada and people can be prosecuted for stealing our pets.

RAINBOW BRIDGE: Passed Away: Lost Dog: Doty Road, Digby Co., NS — Pomeranian/Chihuahua, Male, aprx. 1 — Grizzer, Grizz

Grizzer, Grizz

RAINBOW BRIDGE:  It is with profound sadness that we report that Grizzer has passed to the Bridge. Our sincere condolences to Helen, Kate and their families. Mere words do not suffice. (6.18.12 – 6.18.12)

Breed or Mix: Pomeranian/Chihuahua

Sex: Male   Age: aprx. 1

Collar/Tags: red with black snout/face tag with name and phone number of owner

Lost on: 06/17/2012

Area: Doty Road, Digby, NS

Additional Notes: We are sick over the loss of Grizz. He is a happy, friendly little dog. He is a very fast runner and enjoys the company of other dogs. Very loving and enjoys cuddles and being held. He is a beautiful red dog who had been recently shaved so his body hair is quite short still. And his fluffy, feathery tale is short now as well. On his collar he wears a small medallion with the name Grizzer and his home phone number.

Grizzer is a creature of habit and keeps to his same routine. His owners were leaving the house and he was being left with his grandmother. I assumed he was in the house with the 2 other dogs. They were quiet and it was rest time. After about 2 hours I decided to take them outside and that is when I discovered Grizz was not in house.I went up and down the Doty Road looking for him. His owners searched the woods and went on the local clay shoot property to look as well. We went up and dwon the main road looking and went to all the properties on our road.

We are just so scared he may have been taken.

If you can help we would appreciate it for ever.
