The 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 this wonderful place.
There are green meadows and grassy hills for all of our special contacts so they
can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and there our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who have been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who are 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 miss someone
very special to them who had to be left behind. The animals all run and play together, but the day comes when one of them
suddenly stops and looks longingly into the distance. His bright eyes are intent and his eager body quivers. He begins to
break away from the group as his legs carrying him faster and faster as if he is flying over the soft, green grass. Your pet
has spotted you. And when you and your pet finally meet again, you cling together in joyous reunion as his happy kisses rains
upon your face, and your hand caresses his head. And you look once more into your pet’s trusting and loving eyes that
have been so long gone from your eyes, but never from your heart.
Than together you will cross the Rainbow Bridge, and never be separated again.
