“Piano”

Owners Thank Searchers

Piano, the mixed-breed dog whose disappearance launched a Philipstown search, was found dead over the weekend. Her owners reported (Tuesday) Aug. 23 that a bicyclist had discovered her  body in the brush near Beverly Warren Road and Route 9D, south of Cold Spring, on Saturday evening.

“Piano was a beautiful, soulful four-legged friend and member of our little family and we miss her terribly,” Pam Carley and Larry Zukof, of Guilford, Conn., said in a statement. “But there is much comfort in having been buoyed up by your remarkable community of dog-rescue people, who searched for her tirelessly for five days. You felt to us like an invisible circle of friends, and we will always remember you.”

  1. So sorry for your loss.

    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….
