Just this side of heaven is a plac
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 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
have been restored to health and vigor.
Those who are hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again,
just as we remember them in our dreams of day and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing.
They each miss someone special to them that 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 little body begins to quiver.
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 the Rainbow Bridge together!
