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 sunhine 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 of 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,

someone who was 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


Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, 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 those trusting eyes, so long gone from your

life, but never absent from your heart


Then you cross the  Rainbow bridge

together ...
