       The Rainbow Bridge

      "There's a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge is a verdant land of meadows, hills, and valleys with lush green grass.

      When a beloved pet passes, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. Old and ill and frail animals are made whole. They play all day with each other in the beautiful sunshine.

      They are happy and content, but there is one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So, each day, they run and play until the day comes when suddenly, one stops playing and looks up! The nose twitches! The eyes are staring! And this one suddenly runs from the group!

      You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her into your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.

      Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated...."

      A Dog’s Plea

      Treat me kindly, my beloved friend, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of  me.

      Do not break my spirit with a stick, for although I should lick your hand between blows, your patience and understanding will quickly teach me the things you would have me to learn.

      Speak to me often, for your voice is the sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footsteps falls upon my waiting ear.

      Please take me inside when it is cold and wet, for I am a domesticated animal, no longer accustomed to bitter elements. I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth. Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.

      Feed me clean food that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.

      And, my friend, when I am very old, and no longer enjoy good health, hearing and sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going. I am not having any fun. Please see that my trusting life is taken gently. I shall leave this earth knowing with the last breath I draw that my fate was always safest in your hands.

      I'm Still Here
       
      Your heart
      has been heavy since that day --
      The day you thought I went away.
      I haven't left you I never would --
      You just can't see me, though I wish that you could.
      It might ease the pain that you feel in your heart--
      The pain that you've felt since you've believed us to part.
      Try and think of it this way, it might help you see --
      That I am right here with you and always will be.

      Remember the times we were out in the yard,
      You could not always see me yet I hadn't gone far.

      That's how it is now when you look for my face --
      I'm still right beside you, still filling my place.

      I find it to be so very sad,
      That seeing and believing seem to go hand in hand.
      The love and the loyalty, the warmth that I gave,
      You felt them, did not see them, but you believed just the same.

      I walk with you now like I walked with you then --
      My pain is now gone and I lead once again.

      My eyes always following you wherever you roam--
      Making sure you're okay and you're never alone.

      Our time was too short, yet for me it goes on--
      I won't ever leave you, I'll never be gone.
      I live in your heart as you live in mine--
      An enduring love that continues to shine.

      The day will come and together we'll be,
      And you'll say "take me home boy", and once again I will lead.

      Until that day comes don't think that I've gone--
      I'm right beside you, and my love it lives on.
