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 THAT 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 DAY 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 CONTENT. 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 ARE YOUR SPECIAL FRIEND
FINALLY MEET, YOU CLING TOGETHER IN A JOYOUS REUNION, NEVER TO
BE PARTED AGAIN. THE HAPPY KISSES RAIN UPON YOUR FACE; YOUR
HAND 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.....
