Rainbow Bridge Story
Just this side of heaven is a place called
When an animal who has been especially close to someone dies, 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.
Animals who were 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 from days
and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one thing: they miss
someone very special to them; the person they left behind.
All of the animals 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 spotted, and when you and your special
friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. 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
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together
