Raider Remembered

Raider was a Dobermann, who was adopted through rescue. He went to the Rainbow Bridge on Feb 19, and his owner asked me to share her writing about him.

~Rainbow Bridge for Raider~

My baby raider was the most special dog and human dog a human could ever have, he was my full and utmost companion and loyal friend…


No more will he suffer in pain or in sadness because of being so ill ever again. His life now and always filled with gladness and joy with all of his forever buddies….

He made me laugh and made me cry for all the right reasons… His brother Carlton who he left in our care were the best buddies in the world…. And he also misses him in great devotion .. They would play and of course play hard and one time they had gotten a little rough in fact Carltons rump end hit the corner of our wall and sure enough broke the wall and boy did we laugh till we cryed and of course Carlton was fine…

They would romp and play through the grass and in and out of their doggie door all day long until each one had gotten so tucker out…..Raider will greatly be missed by all of us and everyone and everyone that knew him.. I guess god had his reasons for all of this to happen…. Although I will never understand why??

He Raider then crossed over to that wonderful Rainbow Bridge…. Forever with all his wonderful furry friends …..And I can still feel him by my side….


Funny how they is a plan for everyone in this world …..

The sadness I feel while we are apart but it is not forever
Please please god take care of him for me and give him a big kiss on that big beautiful black nose….

I love you Raider and so does Daddie and your brother Carlton and your 2 wonderful grandmas…..!!

About Helen

I’m a Southern California living in South Florida. I’ve been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I’m a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don’t understand. So I’m an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
