KRAMER" - CH Koping's Tale of Exaggerations August 22, 1999 - September 6, 2011

On Tuesday evening, Kramer crossed over the Rainbow bridge, where he will join fellow Koping Weimaraner that have crossed before him - Catcher, Jacob and Mackenzie. A huge void has been left in the Cross family's household. Kramer was a buddy, friend, confidant, companion, walking partner and unconditionally loving family member to Don, Joan, Catherine and Glenna. It seems just like the other day this family was visiting my first Koping litter of puppies and anxiously awaiting the day they could take their beloved new family member, 'green collar' boy, home. Kramer will not only be missed by the Cross family and Koping Weimaraner family but also the local weim community since he was an integral member of the seasonal 'Calgary Weim walks'. I will cherish the last Koping group walk that Kramer joined us on this past spring. His happy wiggle bum greeted all the greys as well as his 'grandma-Pat'. Rest in Peace dear Kramer. Xoxo

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....

  1. Thoughts to the Cross Family....Kramer really loved his people, and his weim people, he could see us coming from miles away at River Park. I was lucky to live close by and see him lots when I lived in Calgary, either while dog sitting another Koping Weim or once Messina came into my life.....
