Rainbow Bridge
A heartwarming pet story

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 the 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 and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and  comfortable.

All the animals who have 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 stops and suddenly looks into the
distance.  His bright  eyes are intent, his eager body begins to quiver.
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 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 together, you and your special friend
cross the Rainbow Bridge.
