The first letter arrived out of the blue on April 6, 2016, its colorful envelope bearing a Rainbow Bridge return address. Since then, Stephanie and Todd Belcher have gotten regular reports from their beloved dog Jimmy, the namesake of Jimmydog Design Group/Jimmydog Pet Portraits. Each new letter explains more about the wonderous world that greets companion animals after they cross the Rainbow Bridge and introduces special pets that Jimmy and his pals Joey and Freddie meet along the way.
