The Rainbow Bridge

Picture of a rainbow

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills, and valleys with lush green grass. When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food, water, and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other. There is only one thing missing. That they are not with their special person who loved them on earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly looks up. The nose twitches! The ears are up! The eyes are staring and this one runs from the group! You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her into your arms again and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and you look into the eyes of your trusting pet.
