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, someone who was
                 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 begins to quiver.
                 Suddenly, he breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, 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 those trusting eyes, so long gone from your life, but never absent from
                 your heart.
                 Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...
