here is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of Rainbow Bridge is a special land.
hen an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills and valleys with lush green grass for all of our special friends, so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warn and comfortable. All the animals who have 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.
he animals are happy and content, except for one small thing. They miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
hey all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent, the nose twitches and the eager body quivers. Suddenly, this one breaks away from the group, flying over the green grass, legs carrying them faster and faster.
OU 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.
hen, you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...
ut then, there are some at the Bridge who are different. These are the animals who were beaten, starved, tortured and unloved. They watch wistfully as their friends leave, one by one, to cross the Bridge with their special person. For them, there is nobody special... no special one. Their time on Earth did not give them that.
et one day, as they run and play, they notice somebody standing by the road to the Bridge. This person watches with longing the reunion of friends, for during life, this person had no pet. This person was beaten, starved, tortured and unloved.
tanding there alone, one of the unloved pets approaches, curious as to why this person is by themselves... and, as the unloved pet and the unloved person come closer to each other, a miracle occurs, for these are the ones who were meant to be together... the special person and the beloved pet who never had the chance to meet while on Earth. Finally now, at the edge of Rainbow Bridge, their souls meet, the pain and sorrow disappears, and the two friends joyfully greet.
They cross the Rainbow Bridge together... never again to be separated.
