In Loving Memory.....
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 the Rainbow Bridge together.....

Boerner's Little Bocephus               

Bo was our very first bloodhound.  Once we got
him at 7 weeks old, we knew we would never
own another breed.  He brought us so much
amusement and love!  He loved to get out and trail
wounded deer and just hang out with the guys
during hunting season. Moving him to this page
was so much harder than having to make that
horrible decision that was so necessary for him.  
We miss him so much!
Shiner was our very first female.  We got her
at 2 years old and she went to her new family
at 8.  She and Bo started Boerner's
Bloodhounds and grew us into what we are
today.  Shiner went to a wonderful home
where she was loved dearly and got to spend
her remaining years with them.  We were so
saddened to hear the world has lost Shiner.  
She will forever be in our hearts and alway in
our thoughts.  We will always keep her and
Bo's lines going - they have proven to be our
best pups...  I know she is missed dearly by all
that knew and loved her.
No, he's not a bloodhound, but we feel Bear
more than deserves to be on this page.  It was
due to Bear's passing, that we decided to get
our first bloodhound - Bo.  Bear was very
special to all of us and we still miss him very
much.  However, he did help us find a
tremendous love for the Bloodhound breed.....
