Rainbow Bridge.

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 vigour;
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 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.
The bright eyes are intent,
the 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.
The happy kisses rain upon your face,
your hands again caress his 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 pass over Rainbow Bridge together....

To Love a Dog

Oh, how a dog can bless your life.
Canine wisdom teaches much,
The value of unconditional love,
The comfort of a loyal touch.
Dogs have their own sweet dignity,
Playing, or resting a head on your knee.
Sharing you joy and sensing your pain,
With a love that's sunshine in the rain.
As you gaze into loving, soulful eyes,
I pray God helps you realise
Your dog and you will never part
For true love lives inside the heart.
