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, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All of the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor and 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 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 and your special friend finally meet, after so long a time, 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 you cross Rainbow Bridge together.


A Prayer For Dog and Cat Lovers

by anonymous

My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you will be very painful for me. Remember that before you get me.

Give me time to understand what you want from me.

Place your trust in me. It is crucial to my well-being.

Don't be angry with me for long, and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work and entertainment as friends. I have only you.

Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand your voice.

Be aware that however you treat me, I'll never forget it.

Please don't hit me. I can't hit back, but I can bite and scratch and I really don't want to do that.

Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right foods or I've been out in the sun too long or my heart is getting old and weak.

Take care of me when I get old. You will grow old, too. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say "I can't bear to watch," or "Let it happen in my absence".

Everything is easier for me if you are there. Remember I love you!

    None at the moment. I tried looking for such stuff but they only have for fishing enthusiasts. Why don't you write something for your darlings? I will post it in my blog!! :-) Really! Better still if you can send pics.
