Crossing the Rainbow Bridge

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 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 and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.   All the animals who have 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 begins to quiver.   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 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 together you and your special pet cross the Rainbow Bridge...

  1. I love this promise! Thank you for sharing! xoxo

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss of Sampson.
    My Sandy will be 17 this year. We had a big scare last year, Sandy had bladder cancer, but we luckily found it early and had a great surgeon.
    She does have Alzheimer's but the meds are working well so far. And she doesn't hear very well, but really she's very healthy. The vet says she's in great health, she acts 10 years younger than she is.
    We know she's getting up there, but she's just so wonderful. It's going to kill me me loose her.
    My heart goes out to you and yours at this time, I really do know how much our pets mean to us.
