"Hunter"

Sonora's Dazzling Aristocracy 

AKC SN66424106

Sonora's Dazzling Aristocracy, known as 'Hunter Wagsworthy', was born on, Monday July 26, 1999, the sixth of nine golden retriever puppies.  His father was CH Rush Hill's Haagen-Dazs, 'Kirby', and his mother was CH Chuckanut's Sonoran Brass, 'Sage'. He was a beautiful dog with slightly darker coat like his father Kirby of the Rush Hill Kennels, sturdy feet, fine feathering, and his spotted tongue.

Hunter loved adventure like many golden retrievers and was always ready for a new challenge or he would find a challenge even if it was stealing socks from mom. He was eager to learn, curious, animated, loving, and loved to bark on command in the evenings with his family. When spoken to, he had a quizzical expression and cocked his head in the cutest way! He was always carrying a toy and his favorite for the longest time was his chicken. He wore out many toy chickens. Hunter was also part goat as he loved to look for anything to pick up in the yard or on his walks like sticks or even an errant baseball from the park.  Hunter went to school on the weekends.He attended mostly in the summer so it was indoor school.

Hunter was the fun lover and was sometimes called the Patron Saint of Fun-lovers. He was also known as a puppy  as 'the water boy' because of his love of swimming. He was always swimming with the big dogs before coming home from his breeder. He played with the same toys as his brother Travis at that time and whatever Travis had he needed as well. He and his brother would run through the house every night in a ritual we would call 'crazy boy'. Hunter loved playground equipment and would slide down slides and cross swinging bridges.

Like his brother, Hunter began his day at 0430 with a walk as he enjoyed the morning air. He would literally bounce his way through the neighborhood in a dance we would call 'moonlight dancing'. He also loved sitting at the top of 'his' hill and watch the world go by or the watch the setting sun at the end of the day.

A very special golden retriever and a wonderful family member, Hunter went to Rainbow Bridge on July 16, 2007.

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....

 

 

 

I'm Still Here

Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-

I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!
