"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 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 to them, who had to be 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 quivers. 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 finally 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 you cross Rainbow Bridge together."
Light a memory candle. Just like your love, it will burn here forever. Please include a picture of your pet and your sentiments.
To my baby:
You were my child and like any mother, my life feels incomplete without you in it. When I see you at the bridge, I will run to you. I will love you always Potty. You girls stay together.
When I adopted our Floyd about 13 years ago, his appearance and personality showed horrendous abuse and neglect. Stab wounds to the chest, open running sores all over his body and a pronounced mistrust and aggressiveness toward people, men in general. I fell in love with his eyes that at that time were the only beautiful thing about him. I promised him that very day that he would never have to suffer again. Yesterday morning I had to keep my promise and take him to Dr. Andy to put him to sleep. During the past years he went through the most wonderful transformation. True, it took a lot of medical help, trainers, dog walkers to socialize him, patience and lots of love, but Floyd became " Floydie boy" beloved by even people that did not care for dogs. We have had many dogs in our home, but truly Floydie boy was special. He never learned to play, always needed a little space between him and people and never was one to cuddle with. But when I looked in his eyes I knew without a doubt that he loved me unconditional. The last year has been marked by ever increasing medicine and declining health. After laying with him all night we both knew it was time to say good bye. Do I believe we will see each other again? Absolutely! The hurt of letting him go is unspeakable, but the realization of how blessed I have been to have had a pet and friend that showed me that every creature can be redeemed and saved with just a little effort is priceless. I will miss you sweet buddy! You will be forever in my heart.
