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 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....

This has been an extremely hard page for me to build. I lost my best friend three days before Thanksgiving last year and I still miss him terribly. Muss (pron. moose) was a 100 pound red doberman, and he was my constant companion for the 12 years of his life. Occasionally I wondered who was really training who, and who the "master of the house" really was. It was a toss-up a lot of times. He was an overgrown lap dog, but because of his breed and his size I never had to worry about being alone. He never attacked anyone, but he was never challanged either. I lost him as a result of complications after surgery to remove a bad tumor, and I hope someday we'll reunite again at Rainbow Bridge.
