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, 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 quiver. Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, faster and faster.
all animals, great and small,
living or those who have crossed over to Rainbow Bridge.
I dedicate this also to my beloved Sargent. I hope he awaits me at the Rainbow Bridge. He was a 3 quarter Wolf On quarter Aleshin Hound. Was poisoned long ago. I also hope the many animals I loved an charished thoughout my life also await me. May they all be happy till the day comes I am spotted an each of my friends are returned to me.
