Many of us who love our fur kids get some peace from the

Rainbow Bridge Poem

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....

Jack and Terry,
We are so sad to learn of Rosie's passing. As sad as it for those left behind you know she is now pain free.

Thank you Carol for the Rainbow Bridge poem. I tear up every time I read it.

Thank you Jack and Terry for sharing Rosie with us even if it was such a short time.

Rosie let me be her friend, and I'll miss her, too. What responsibilities we have to our friends deepens the loss when they leave us.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We know from experience how difficult times like this can be. We have lost our Jack Russel and our Border Collie within the last year.

Jack and Terry,
Having a pet depart is not an easy thing. We all hope they will live to old age. But sometimes we have to decide for them. I
believe that they do not want to go. They want to stay with their human as lond as they can. They trust you to do what is best. I have been down this road a few times. It's not easy. Days will get better. I am sure Maggie is missing her too. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hi,

So sorry to hear about your dog. We too lost our yellow lab Walt two weeks ago. He was one camping fool. It was very hard the next time we took off in the trailer, but another will find you and latch on as they always do.

Jack and Terry, we are saddened by your loss. I too cried the last two times that I had to put our dogs down. That is the reason that we don't have another dog yet (just Baxter). Kathy just doesn't want to go through that again.

Every time I hear of someone losing a beloved companion it reminds me of the wonderful animals that have enriched my life and meant so much to me. I'm a better person for having them in my life. I suspect that it's the same for you. I'm sorry for your loss. The pain will lessen but your heart will be incomplete with them gone. Remember the unconditional love you received and hold it in your heart as an example to live your life by. They teach us so many things ...

Sorry to hear of your loss. We had the pleasure of having a big yellow dog in our life and he is missed. It is painful - they just are with us for too short of time.

Thanks to everyone again for your wonderful replies,Rosie's sister Maggie is sticking to us like glue. She won't sleep in her kennel any more without the door left open and now eats only
one meal a day instead of two,maybe it'll help keep her weight down a little.
Hopefully Terry,Maggie and I will see some of you at the rallies again!
Jack and Terry
