A short explanation about 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 had to have my wee dog Cally put to sleep last month after 12 happy years I miss her so much and it gives me comfort to know she is waiting at Rainbow Bridge- a lovely poem

It's a comfort to think my dear old Judy is there waiting for me. My Dad found Judy as a stray when I was 14 and he bought her home for me. Judy was a GSD/Lab cross and a beautiful natured dog. We used to have her carrying eggs around the house in her mouth, she was so gentle she never broke one.

When she was 8 years old she had her spleen removed, the vet gave her another 12 months max, that was then. We have the priveledge of having her company for another 18 months. RIP sweet girl, until we meet up again.

Not many things make me cry, but this did. Reading this whenever I miss Zac makes me miss him even more, but at the same time, it's comforting.

In my own mind I'm sure that every animal there has ever been (including the unwanted ones!) go to Rainbow Brisge & wait for their special someone. Love Struck

Post by Matea on Wed Jan 08 2014, 14:59

I have a few songs on this topic...



Where is this place they call heaven?
Somewhere ‘tween the sky and the earth.
Where we go when our time finally ends
and where we come from at our birth?

What is this place they call heaven?
A place to where all souls silently slip
Whether they are animals or humans
The angels guide us on wing tip.

But is there a place they call heaven?
Some say there is no heaven at all, so
they say when we go nothing happens
But we make the worms happy to grow

But I know that there’s a glorious heaven
I know, and I’m not that smart
It’s a place where I keep all my memories
It’s a place that I call my heart.
---------------------------------------------

I'm always here

Momma please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, momma, I'm everyplace!

I like this one, always brings a tear to my eye

A Little Dog Angel

High up in the courts of heaven today
a little dog angel waits;
with the other angels he will not play,
but he sits alone at the gates.
"For I know my master will come" says he,
"and when he comes he will call for me."

The other angels pass him by
As they hurry toward the throne,
And he watches them with a wistful eye
as he sits at the gates alone.
"But I know if I just wait patiently
that someday my master will call for me."

And his master, down on earth below,
as he sits in his easy chair,
forgets sometimes, and whispers low
to the dog who is not there.
And the little dog angel cocks his ears
and dreams that his master's voice he hears.

And when at last his master waits
outside in the dark and cold,
for the hand of death to open the door,
that leads to those courts of gold,
he will hear a sound through the gathering dark,
a little dog angel's bark.
