It's been a hard day today with my mum's dog going to Rainbow Bridge. She was 12 & was doing well to last with the heart problems she did for the last 2 years. But she can go on no more. I'll miss my "sister" dog a lot.
Happy at the Rainbow Bridge where her dad is waiting to meet her.
The Rainbow Bridge
There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colours.
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge, there is a land of meadows,
hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place.
There is always food and water and warm spring weather,
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 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 break away from the group, flying over the green grass,
his legs carrying him faster and faster.
YOU have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet,
you take him or her in your arms and embrace.
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 yourlife but never from your heart.
THEN you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.
