|The Rainbow Bridge
|There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow
Bridge because of its many colors. 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. The old and frail animals are young
again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day
with each other.
There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who
loved them on Earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes
when one suddenly stops playing and looks up! The nose twitches! The ears
are up! The eyes are staring! And this one suddenly runs from the group!
You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take
him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again,
and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.
