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. 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, 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.... Author unknown...

Re: Rainbow Bridge
That brings a tear to my eye Jay, having lost 2 pets in the last 4 years. Only thing is, I have had 5 dogs and a cat in my life so far - I would probably be killed all over again in the rush :lol:

Thanks to everyone who comments on my projects. I am very grateful even if I don't always get around to thanking you personally! <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all!

Re: Rainbow Bridge
This is really lovely. Those who have never had pets don't know the sense of loss we feel when we lose one of ours, especially when they have been such a large part of your life for a long time Love Mary xx

Re: Rainbow Bridge
Tears my heart every time I read it....but I still read it. Even though I now have my Charlie and he's a total dote, I still miss my Judy, Kerry, Kindi, China and most of all my lickle Magic and my beloved Merlin who will never ever be replaced. Thank you for the reminder. Hugs Ei x

Housekeeping tip of the day: Always keep a few get well cards on the mantelpiece, then visitors will think you have been ill and unable to clean!
