                               What would I do without you, my precious furry friend?...
                                Part mischief, but all blessings, and faithful to the end!
                               You look at me with eyes of love; you never hold a grudge....

                                You think I'm far too wonderful to criticize or judge.
                                It seems your greatest joy in life is being close to me....
                                I think God knew how comforting your warm, soft fur would be.

                                I know you  think you're human, but I'm glad it isn't true....
                                The world would be a nicer place if folks were more like you!
                                A few short years are all we have; One day we'll have to part...

                                 But you, my pet, will always have a place within my heart.

Rainbow Bridge

 Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to some one 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 comes the day 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 carry 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...
