What is 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....

I give you this one thought to keep

I am with you still, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,

I am the diamond glints on snow,

I am the sunlight on ripened grain

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning hush,

I am the swift uplifting rush

of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not think of me as gone,

I am with you still - in each new dawn.

Great Books that help you heal after losing a pet.

You are not alone...there are many other people who have lost a pet that is like a member of their family. Here are just a few books that will help you heal after such a great loss.

      I've recently lost two dogs of my own and have the Rainbow Bridge poem on my memorial lens. It's a beautiful poem and your gifts offer a beautiful way to remember a pet. Lensrolled to 5*

      Lovely lens!

      As my Beagles get older I know that one day, they will leave me, knowing that they will cross the rainbow bridge is a great comfort!

      Thank you very much. We have been working lately with a group of Boxer owners who have lost many pups in the last couple months. Lets keep them in our thoughts and prayers too.

      Great lens 5*, I still miss all the dogs I ever owned they were all unique both in type and personalities and one could never replace the other.

      I know what it is like to lose a pet. They are so much a family member. Thanks for the nice comment on my History of the German Shepherd lens.

      Very nice lens!

      What lovely special items. I have to admit the greyhound pillow about broke my heart as we lost our lovely white hound some years ago and still miss her. I'll have to favorite this lens so I can be sure and lenroll when I find the courage to write an article about her.

      This is a wonderful and much needed lens. And your art cards and gifts are beautiful. I've long been an admirer of your dog art on Z & CP. I'm a newbie here on Squidoo. 5 Stars. Just joined your fan club.

      Those who have never had a dog in their lives would probably think you get another and start again when your dog dies. When I lost my little Jack Russell almost 18 years ago, I was heartbroken and still miss her, even though I have had other dogs since. It really is like losing a family member. Great lens!
