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 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 the 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. 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........
