The Rainbow Bridge
There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors.
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place.
There is always food and water and warm spring weather.
The old and frail animals are young again.
Those who are maimed are made whole again.
They play with each other.
There is only 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 one suddenly 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 in your arms and embrace.
Your face is kissed again and again and again
,and you look once more into the eyes of your pet.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together
never again to be separated.

The Greatest Gift
I always knew this time would come
From the very first time our eyes first met
How I loved you then! How I love you now!
I made a promise then and I keep that promise now.
You will not suffer from a pain that will not heal,
You will not know the loss of a life remembered, now gone. It is for me alone to make this decision. The price for the bright joy and pure laughter. You brought me during the time we shared.
I am the only one who can decide when it is time
Just when I need you most, I must let you go.
It is for you alone to tell me when you are ready,
For without your guidance, I will not know
When to lay my grief, my guilt, my anger,
My sorrow and my selfish heart aside
And give you the last gift, the greatest gift.
Your eyes will speak to mine, and I will know.
The pain of this moment is excruciating,
Tears stream down my face in a river of sorrow,
And my heart drowns in a pool of grief.
For you have spoken and I have listened
And unlike other decisions I have made,
This one brings no relief...no comfort...no peace
For if there's one thing I have learned...
Unconditional love has a condition after all.
I must be willing to let you go when you speak to me, I must accept my pain so you can be free of yours. Go easily now, go quickly now,
Do not linger here, it is time for you to leave.
Go find the ones who have gone before you.
You are free to leave me now, free to let your spirit soar.
I pray I will find comfort in my memories...
In the dark and lonely days ahead
I cannot say I will not miss you,
I cannot say I will not cry,
For only my tears can heal my broken heart.
But I promise you this...
as long as I live...You will live
Alive in my mind, forever in my heart
And this will be my greatest gift...
Sending you away
It is the measure of my unconditional love...
For only the greatest love can say
“Goodbye, go find the Rainbow Bridge
and yes, we'll meet again. Loving you has been the greatest gift of all.”

A Doggie Prayer
Do not grieve for me, my friend, as I am with my kind...
My collar is a rainbow's hue
My leash a shooting star
My boundaries are the milky way
Where I sparkle from afar.
There are no pens or kennels here
For I am not confined
But free to roam God's heavens
Among my special kind.
I nap the day on a snowy cloud
With gentle breezes rocking me
I dream the dreams of earthlings
And how it used to be.
The trees are full of liver treats
And tennis balls abound
And milk bones line the walking ways
Just waiting to be found.
There even is a ring set up
The grass all lush and green
And everyone who gaits around
Becomes the "Best Of Breed".
For we're all winners in this place
We have no faults you see
And God passes out the ribbons
To each one--even me.
At night I sleep in angels' arms
Their wings protecting me
And moonbeams dance about us
As stardust falls on thee.
So when your life on earth is spent
And you reach heaven's gate
Have no fear of loneliness
For here, you know I wait.

Remember Our Love
I was chosen today
I am learning to fly
the world took me away,
but please don't you cry
And I chose you today
to try and be strong
so please don't you cry
and don't say that I am gone
When you're feeling alone
just remember our love,
I'm up near the stars
looking down from above.
Remember our love
In a moment you'll see
that I am still here beside you
when you're thinking of me.

I am adding this as the last entry of a Beautiful Little girl she was 11 years old and on The 7th of January at 330am she was pronounced dead. From Congestive heart failure. She was not sick from this at all just kinda snuck up on us she ate as usual that day at 2 pm then out for a walk she did her business then came up to nap. Then at 8pm she started coughing a little and was staring up at sky didnt think anything of it just the cough bothered me a little. Then my son took her out and she refused to walk then she fell to the ground and looked like she was having a seizure but it was not it was she couldnt breath to well...well then off to the Vet we go and they tell me water in the lungs can be heard then to do an x-ray but they said they needed to do an ultra sound and we had to wait for the guy to come in at 6am to do that and to leave her and them would try to give her diuretics to get some of the water out of her chest. Well at 130 am they called to say her heart stopped and they resuscitated her as we asked them to do. Then asked if this happened again do we want them to resusitate her again well I said no this is no way for her to live then at 330am they called to say her heart stopped and she was dead. At that moment my heart BROKE into a million pieces and I lost my baby girl forever I hope she is Happy at Rainbow bridge cause I am miserable without her......A Heartbroken Mother..Hug your Babies u never know
