Here are some of our past pets may they rest in peace at rainbow bridge

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....

Life can be so unkind.

Our Handsome boy Kas has crossed over the rainbow bridge .  After a small spell of lameness, we took Kas to the vets for what we thought was just a sprained knee....Xrays showed otherwise......Sadly kas was put to sleep on the 20th May 2015 a few weeks after we discovered he has aggressive form of bone cancer. Yet again our hearts have been broken by a truly amazing soul. One who will never be forgotten.


Run Free our Tigger boy out of pain.



Where Honiahaka Began

On Thursday 5th September 2013 Our Beautiful Girl Saskia left our lives, she was one of the 2 puppies that started the Honiahaka family off.  Saskia and her sister where lovingly known as our Naughty girls.  She was the first ever Registered Northern Inuit to win a Northern Inuit Society Gold Star award ( CC) and was breath taking to watch as she strutted her stuff in the ring.

Saskia Had 2 litters of Puppies for us here as she was never cut out for motherhood.

This Naughty,Cheeky girl will always live on at Honiahaka, not only in her off spring but always in our hearts.

Sleep tight Whirly tail xxxx

RIP old boy

We sadly had yo have our 34yo old boy Mellow PTS on May 2nd 2012 ....He did me proud and was always there with a shoulder to lean on..... Took me over some of the scariest cross country courses and through some too i may add....Miss you so much old boy, this place will never be the same without you.



You were not ready for this world

Our Beautiful Mini Ini was just too precious for this world...

Born too early he's lungs had not developed enough to inflate, he fought for two and a half weeks but sadly passed away in Georgie's arms .  Run free beautiful Ini.


It was with a heavy heart that on 1st May 2009 we had our Old GSD put to sleep.

Sarris was a much loved and valued member of our family and one that is sadly missed every day
Run free old boy out of pain now, look after dad and keep those pesky puppies in check over the bridge.


If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.

You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where my needs they'll tend,

Only, stay with me till the end,
And hold me firm and speak to me,
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree,
It is a kindness you do to me.

Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you,
Who has to decide this thing to do;

We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.


Tala went to the bridge today, this lovely small puppy captured so many hearts, she was truely loved by all that met her and all that shared her sad story, may she run free and cause Havoc where ever she goes, we will never forget you our sweet girl, till we meet again god bless and goodbye xxx

Poor little Tala she is so cute
I'll miss her a lot & I know you will too
She is going to heaven to make lots of friends
Then there will be no pain & suffering again
Poor little Tala she is so cute
I'll miss her a lot & I know you will too.

The Gate of Heaven

I got to the gate of Heaven yesterday,
After we said good bye.
I began to miss you terribly,
Because I heard you cry.

Suddenly there was an Angel,
And she asked me to enter Heavens gate.
I asked her if I could stay outside and wait,
For someone who'd be late.

I wouldn't make much noise you see,
I wouldn't bark or howl.
I'd only wait here patiently,
And play with my tennis ball.

The Angel said I could stay right here,
And wait for you to come.
Because Heaven just wouldn't be Heaven,
If I went in alone.

So I'll wait here, you take your time,
But keep me in your heart.
Because Heaven just wouldn't be Heaven,
Without you to warm my heart.

Do not stand at my grave and weep;

I am not there.

I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush,

I am the swift uplifting rush

of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;

I am not there, I did not die.

Shakira (aka Wolfie)   RIP  you touched our hearts big time, we will never forget you, we will meet again at rainbow bridge X



My best friend closed her eyes last night,
  As her head was in my hand.
The Doctors said  she was in pain,
  And it was hard for her to stand.

The thoughts that scurried through my head,
  As I cradled her in my arms.
Were of her few, puppy years,
  And OH...her many charms.

Today, there was no gentle nudge
  With an intense "I love you gaze",
Only a heart thats filled with tears
  Remembering our joy filled days.

But an Angel just appeared to me,
  And he said, "You should cry no more,
GOD also loves our canine friends,
  HE's installed a 'doggy-door"!

       Sulin shakira  RIP  27/8/03 to 26/3/05  out of pain never out of our thoughts xx


With heavy hearts; and a tear in our eyes
after all these years; we must say goodbye
Please understand; we've done all we could
if there was anything we could do; you know we would

I'm sitting right here; gently rub your ears
while I talk to you softly; trying to hold back the tears
The memories you gave us; we'll never forget
especially the ones; of the day we all met

One last hug; and one last kiss
you have no idea; how much you'll be missed
To look into your eyes; this one last time
you tell me it's ok; you know it's your time

Close your eyes now; and go to sleep
we'll pray to the Lord; you're soul he'll keep
Go in peace now; our good friend
we'll stay right here with you; until the end

Dream of that special day and time
when we'll meet at the Bridge; and all will be fine
We'll run and play; side by side
with a soft warm feeling; deep down inside

Your memory will live on; in each one of us
you'll always be number 1; to all of us
Have a safe journey; through the night
I promise when you awake; you'll be in God's light

So with heavy hearts; and tears in our eyes
just for now my friend; we say goodbye
