Just this side of heaven

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 then in our
dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and
content, except 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.
