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 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...

THE END OF RAINBOW BRIDGE
When I Woke up this Morning I Felt Very Odd
I Don't Know Why, but I Felt Close to God
The Sun Was Shining, the Birds Were Singing
The Music Was Soft, the Bells Were Ringing
And Puppies Were Romping at Play
What a Pleasant Start of a Wonderful Day
I Remember Laying down to Take a Nap
I Remember I Had My Head in Her Lap
I Remember the Sad Look in Her Eye
I Remember I Had Never Seen Her Cry.
I Remember I Wanted to Ask Her Why
I Remember Hearing Her Say, Goodbye
I Wanted to Say Don't Cry for Me
I Wanted to Say, Just Remember Me
I Wanted to Say I Remember the Toys
I Wanted to Say I Remember the Joys
I Wanted to Say, I Love You So Much
I Wanted to Say, How I Loved Your Touch
Oh Please Let Me Hug You
Oh Please Let Me Kiss You
Oh Please Let Me Tell You
What an Angel You've Been
Oh Please Let Me Thank You
for Showing Me Him
I Knew When I Woke up
There Would Be No Pain
I Knew If I Wanted to
I Could Play in the Rain
I Knew That I Would Remember
the Love You Gave Me Forever
You've Taken Care of Me
All My Life You've Guarded Me from Trouble and Strife
You've Taken Care of Me thru Good and Bad
You've Always Stopped Me from Feeling Sad
You've Given Me Treats and Given Me Care
You've Told Me What to Expect When I Got There
So Please Don't Cry, Wipe the Tears from Your Eye
I'll Look down upon You and with a Woof and a Sigh
I'll Gather My Courage and March up to God and Ask Him
When You Get Here to Give You a Nod
for You Were My Master and You Were My Friend
and I'll Be Waiting for You at the Rainbows End.

Dear God,

If You could only spare the time To let my pet lie down beside Your feet, If You could pat his head and let him in Or send an angel to the gate to meet him When he comes, lost and forlorn; If you could help in any way, I would be glad For he had never been alone until today, And even in Heaven, I know he will be sad Without my voice to chase his fears away. He'll miss our reassuring had upon his head. You see, we were inseparable, and now He will not undersand this being dead. I do not understand it well, myself. o please, dear God, give him a place to wait Through the long years, a patient ghost, Until the day I meet him at Your gate.

A Little Dog Angel



High up in the courts of heaven today
A little dog angel waits;
with the other angels he will not play,
but he sits alone at the gates,
"For I know that my master will come,"says he,
"And when he comes he will call for me."

And his master far on the earth below,
As he sits in his easy chair,
Forgets sometimes, and he whistles low
For the dog that is not there:
And the little dog angel cocks his ears
And dreams that his master's call he hears.

And I know that at last when his master waits
Outside, in the dark and cold
for the hand of death to open the gates
that lead to thos courts of gold,
The little dog angels' eager bark
Will comfort his soul in the shivering dark.

Dogs Who've Shared our Lives



"They will not go quietly,
the dogs who've shared our lives.
In subtle ways they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Old habits still make us think
we hear a barking at the door.
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place
the food dish used to be,
And, sometimes, coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them...
and always will."

"Sometimes it helps just to know someone cares...and I do."

God's Garden



God looked around His garden
And He found an empty place
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your precious face

He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest;
God' s Garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew you' d never ever
Get well on earth again.

So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered " Peace be thine "
Then He took you up to Heaven
With Hands so gentle and kind.

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God welcomed you home.

Heaven



An old man and his dog were walking down this dirt road with fences on both sides, they came to a gate in the fence and looked in, it was nice grassy, woody areas, just what a 'huntin' dog and man would like, but, it had a sign saying 'no trespassing' so they walked on.

Next they came to a beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there. "welcome to Heaven" he said. The old man was happy and started in with his dog following him. The gatekeeper stopped him. "Dogs aren't allowed, I'm sorry but he can't come with you."

"What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs? If He can't come in, then I will stay out with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life, I can't desert him now."

"Suit yourself, but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his area, he'll promise you anything, but, the dog can't go there either. If you wont leave the dog, you'll spend Eternity on this road."

So the old man and dog went on.

They came to a rundown fence with a gap in it, no gate, just a hole. Another old man was inside. "'Scuse me Sir, my dog and I are getting mighty tired, mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?"

"Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there. Make yourselves comfortable"

"You're sure my dog can come in? The man down the road said dogs weren't allowed anywhere."

"Would you come in if you had to leave the dog?"

"No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven, he said the dog couldn't come in. We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if my buddy here cant come too, and that's final."
The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."

"You mean this is Heaven? Dogs ARE allowed? How come that fellow down the road said they weren't?"

"That was the Devil and he gets all the people who are willing to give up a life long companion for a comfortable place to stay. They soon find out their mistake, but, then it's too late. The dogs come here, the fickle people stay there. GOD wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, HE created them to be man's companions in life, why would he separate them in death?"

Heaven's Doggie Door



My best friend closed his eyes last night,
As his head lay in my hand.
The doctors said he was in pain,
And it was hard for him to stand.
The thoughts that scurried through my head,
As I cradled him in my arms,
Were of his younger puppy years,
And Oh... his many charms.
Today there was no gentle nudge,
With an intense "I love you" gaze.
Only a heart that's filled with tears,
Remembering our joy-filled days.
But an Angel just appeared to me,
And said, "You should cry no more,
God also loves our canine friends,
He's installed a doggy door!"

I Saw an Angel



I saw an angel today, oh what a vision to see.
This beautiful angel sent only to me.
My eyes filled with tears at this glorious sight,
This angel so lovely made my heart feel so light.

I held an angel today, in my hands it did rest
Surely it had to be one of God's best.
So soft, so tender, so fragile it seemed
To hold such an angel was more than I dreamed.

I kissed an angel today, I just couldn't resist
As I looked at this sweetie I felt so much bliss
My heart over poured with a feeling of love
For this sweet little creature sent from Heaven above.

I lost an angel today; I guess God had other plans
This precious little life slipped right through my hands
My heart felt so empty as tears fell from my eyes
I didn't have the chance to say my good byes.

I saw an angel today, one I'll never forget
Those short precious moments I'll never regret
He took something with him on his journey above A piece of my heart to remember my love.
