The Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called

The Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close

to someone here, that pet goes to The 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. Their bright eyes are intent; their eager body quivers.

Suddenly they begin to run from the group, flying over green grass, their legs

carrying them 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; yours 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 you heart.

Then you cross The Rainbow Bridge together....
