THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS AT RAINBOW BRIDGE

THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
AT RAINBOW BRIDGE

T'was the night before Christmas, at Rainbow Bridge too.
We Bridge kids were thinking as always of you.
We'd seen how the holidays weren't bright this year,
Heard you whisper so often, "I wish you were here!"

We know how you wish you could just stay in bed
And sleep through the holiday lying ahead,
When all celebrate with their loved ones so near...
Unless they have loved ones on this side this year.

But we're no less alive here, on the other side.
If you could just see us, you would've laughed and not cried.
The dogs all in harness, pulling the sleigh.
The cats all in Santa hats pointing the way.

The pet birds all flying back over the rainbow,
Bound homeward in spite of Earth's darkness and snow.
All the pets that you've lost, pets for whom you've cried,
Flying home on this Christmas to be by your side.

If you feel warm fur brush you when no pet's around,
Hear a soft bark or purr, just a ghost of a sound,
We're trying to tell you we're visiting this way,
And our visits, even rainbows, can be on any day.

But for Christmas we have something special to do,
A sleigh full of happy dream visits for you.
On doggy, on kitty, on winged friend and ferret!
The love that you lavished, we mean now to share it!

We're fetching that love home, the way we once played,
With the closeness we shared and the memories we made.
Our Earth lives with you were too short for us, too,
And on this Christmas Eve we have so much to do.

So all through this night as you sleep in your beds,
Sweet visions of fur babies dance in your heads.
This one special night we can bring you Home for a while,
Your true home in Heaven, where again you will smile.

Over the rainbow you'll fly, for a short while this night,
Hours that you'll be happy, hours that will feel right,
Hours to cuddle and hug us, to run and to play,
Before the return to Earth in our magic way.

And when you awaken and face Christmas Day,
We pray you'll remember your trip on our sleigh,
But in case you forget, just remember our love.
Remember us watching you, your angels above.

Sending love wrapped in rainbows, shining and bright,
Love that will guide you through the darkest night,
Love found in each memory unwrapped through the year,
Replacing dark sorrows with Christmas cheer.

Leave the toys to St. Nick, we Bridge kids bring dreams,
Sweet visits to remind you all is not as it seems
When you look all around you with tired Earthly eyes.
If you saw as we do, there'd be joy and surprise.

There are fur angels waiting by those Christmas trees,
Always there for you and hearing your pleas.
We're never more than a thought away from your home,
You're never forgotten, you're never alone.

Nor are we alone here, with our Rainbow Bridge friends.
We know only joy here, the celebrating never ends,
And after our reunions with you Christmas Eve,
We Bridge kids will party like you'd never believe.

But we'll slip away often to be by your side.
Sitting there watching you, eyes open wide,
Praying you'll be able to catch a glimpse of us, too.
But whether or not you see us - Merry Christmas to you!

A CHRISTMAS STORY for animal lovers and those who may give- an animal for Christamas

A CHRISTMAS STORY for animal lovers and those who may give an animal for Christamas :
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Figuring the dog was free and into the trash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the luster of midday to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But Santa Claus - his eyes full of tears.
He unchained the dog, once so lively and quick,
Last years Christmas present, now thin and sick.
More rapid than eagles he called the dog's name.
And the dog ran to him, despite all his pain;
"Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On Cupid! On, Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall!
Let's find this dog a home where he'll be loved by all"
I knew in an instant there would be no gifts this year,
For Santa Claus had made one thing quite clear,
The gift of a dog is not just for the season,
We had gotten the pup for all the wrong reasons.
In our haste to think of giving the kids a gift
There was one important thing that we missed.
A dog should be family, and cared for the same!
You don't give a gift, then put it on a chain.
And I heard him exclaim as he rode out of sight,
"You weren't given a gift! You were given a life!"

TEN PEEVES THAT DOGS HAVE ABOUT HUMANS!


----------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------

'1'
Blaming your farts on me.
Not funny -- not funny at all !!!

----------------------------------------------
'2'
Yelling at me for barking.
I'M A DAMN DOG.


--------------------------------------------------
'3'
Taking me for a walk, then not letting me check stuff out.
Exactly whose walk is this, anyway?


----------------------------------------------- ---
'4'
Any trick that involves balancing food on my nose.
Stop it!


--------------------------------------------------

'5'
Any haircut that involves bows or ribbons.
Now you know why we chew your stuff up when you're not home.


------------------------------------------------- -
'6'
The sleight-of-hand, fake fetch-throw.
You fooled a dog! Whoooo hoooooooo!
What a proud moment for the top of the food chain.


--------------------------------------------------
'7 '
Taking me to the vet for 'the big snip', then acting surprised when I freak out every time we go back!


------------------------------------------------- -
'8'
Getting upset when I sniff the crotches of your guests.
Sorry, but I haven't quite mastered that handshake thing yet.


--------------------------------------------------
'9'
Dog sweaters.
Hello ??? Haven't you noticed the fur?
--------------------------------------------------
'1 0'
How you act disgusted when I lick myself.
Look, we both know the truth. You're just jealous.


---------------------------------------------- ----
Now lay off me on some of these things.
We both know who's boss here!
You don't see me picking up your poop, do you?

EVERY DOG HAS HIS DAY.
A DOG ALWAYS OFFERS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
CATS HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT!.........

 

I miss you so bad Cory, and your sister too. wish you were- both still with me!

I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake with which I'll never part. God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart.

 

This is all so true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Isn't this the truth . . .







If I Didn't Have a Dog...or Cat......or a parrot ..or a

rabbit



I could walk around the yard barefoot

in safety.





My house could be carpeted instead of

tiled and laminated.



All flat surfaces, clothing,

furniture, and cars would be free of hair.







When the doorbell rings, it wouldn't

sound like a kennel.







When the doorbell rings, I could get

to the door without wading through fuzzy bodies who beat me

there.



I could sit on the couch and my bed

the way I wanted, without taking into consideration how much

space several fur bodies would need to get

comfortable.







I would have money, and no guilt to go

on a real vacation.

I would not be on a first-name basis

with 6 veterinarians, as I put their yet unborn Grandkids

through college.













The most used words in my vocabulary

would not be: out, sit, down, come, no, stay, and leave it

ALONE.

My house would not be cordoned off

into zones with baby gates or barriers.







I would not talk 'baby talk'.

'Eat your din din'. 'Yummy yummy for the

tummy'..

My house would not look like a day

care center, toys everywhere.







My pockets would not contain things

like poop bags, treats and an extra leash.







I would no longer have to spell the

words B-A-L-L,, W-A-L-K,,

T-R-E-A-T,, O-U-T,,

G-O,, R-I-D-E,, C-O-O-K-I-E







I would not have as many leaves INSIDE

my house as outside.







I would not look strangely at people

who think having ONE dog/cat ties them down too

much.







I'd look forward to spring and the

rainy season instead of dreading 'mud'

season.



I would not have to answer the

question 'Why do you have so many animals?'

from people who will never have the

joy in their lives of knowing they are loved unconditionally by someone as close

to an angel as they will ever get.

How EMPTY my life would

be!!!

JUST MY DOG

JUST MY DOG

He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds.

He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea.

He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being: by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him.

(I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.)

When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive.

When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.

When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.

When I am a fool, he ignores it.

When I succeed, he brags.

Without him, I am only another man.

With him, I am all-powerful.

He is loyalty itself.

He has taught me the meaning of devotion.

With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace.

He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.

His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.

His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things.

He has promised to wait for me...whenever...wherever--in case I need him.

And I expect I will--as I always have.

He is just my dog.

I MADE A NEW FRIEND MIMEE, SHE IS UP HEAR WITH ME AT THE- BRIDGE!

Hi all my friends!
My mom when on the pet loss site to see who was there, and to see if anybody needed to talk about losing there furbabys! She meant a nice lady who just lost her beloved baby Mimee, it has only been two weeks since she came up to the bridge. Mom said she though it was neat because she has all her babys on dogster too, just like mom does. So mom got to see all her beautiful babys. Mom misses me so but she feels so bad when she sees someone who just lost a beloved baby like Mimee. She knows it has to be so hard for them. When you lose one of us it is like a part of your heart has been torn out, and it feels like it will never heal! Mom wishes the best for her and her familey, and knows it will not be easy, and the pain just seems to hang on. But mom says that knowing that I am no longer in pain, and that she did all she could for me makes it a little easyer. But her heart still aches, and she still looks for me, and sometimes she even thinks she hears me. But I am with her in her heart watching over her from the rainbow bridge. And now Mimee is up at the bridge watching over her mom and the rest of her family, keeping them safe!

 

Sending hello's from the rainbow bridge!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi all my friends! I meet a new friend up hear named cupid, just one great dog! Her mom is missing her so, it has not been too long since she came up hear with me. My mom said it is just so hard when someone's furbaby has to come up hear to the bridge! Some days mom says she just does not know how she is going to make it through the day with out me! But I tell her that Im there with her in her heart, watching over her and my sister's. But it still is not easy and I miss her so. This is the time of year when we would get to start swimming in the lake again, and oh how I loved to swim in the lake with my sister dogs Shelby and Gizmo. I know mom walked them over to the lake the other day, and boy did they look like they were having a great time. I could see mom sitting on the bench, tossing the flying squrrill out to them that Gizmo got for her birthday. I could tell Gizmo really liked it too! But I could see mom was missing me while she was playing with them. Gizmo came out of the water and shock all the water off of her on mom, and I saw mom laugh as she got all wet and it was good to see her do that! I know she has my sister's but she still misses me so, I wish there was something I could do to make her feel better. But it looked like Gizmo and Shelby were doing a good job of making her smile, Im glad she has them! Well bye for now all my friends. And take care of yourselfs. Have a dog gone good day!!! Love Cory
