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 our special friendís 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 have been ill and old are restored to health and vigour, those who were hurt and 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 again, 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 in the distance, his bright eye intent, his eager body beginning to quiver. Suddenly he breaks from the group flying across the green grass faster and faster. You have been spotted
The happy kisses rain upon your face, your hands again caress that 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
