In addition to lighting candles to honor our babies at The Bridge, candles may also be lit to offer support, prayers, well-wishes, and hopes for any pup who is having a tough time. Candles may also be lit to say "Thanks!" for something. You may even light one and leave it blank, the reason staying between you and your candle.

Our candle page is a way for us to honor our babies as well as each other, to remember, to share, a way for our family to grow closer. Here is the link to the candle lighting site:


Previously, we were able to create a "group" page that was dedicated solely to the candles of our members. Gratefulness.org has recently revised their website, however, and we now need to follow these steps in order to find and view all our members' candles on a single page.

When you first compose a message for your candle, be sure to include either "K9C" or "k9c" somewhere within the body of your message.

At any point in the future, if you want to view candles lit by yourself or other members of our family, type K9C (or k9c) in the search field in the upper right hand side of the candle lighting page.

All candles with messages containing our family's initials will show. It is then possible to open the candles to read the messages.

After opening a candle within the group, use the back arrow to return to the group rather than clicking on "Back to Candles."
This way you can dip in and out of our family grouping and also quickly see how many candles are lit.

Thank you for the link Leslie. I have been wanting to light a candle for Buddy, but didn't know the site's name.

Thank you all for the information and the link Leslie. I lit a candle for my sweet Tipper, may she live to be 20.

Really, Thanks, Patti and Leslie! :)

OK...I lit one for Squirt too, but it went to her own group. :(
