My golden retriever Brandi has inspired me to write this book I have been putting together for the last few months. It is a daily meditation book for pet owners who are grieving the loss of a pet. It contains daily quotes, a prayer quote, a journaling section or to take notes and a photo of the pet who's story is being told on that day. That's where you can come in.
If any of you feel like sharing your loss with others would be greatly appreciated. Tell how you managed to move on after lossing your pet.
Example: you got another pet, or someone said something to you that clicked and it helped you, or whatever it was that has been helping you to heal your pain and free your soul. I am interested in putting these stories in my book so that they can inspire, heal, help another grieving pet owner.
No one can tell us how painful it is to when your pet goes to rainbow bridge unless they have gone through it already.
For me, it helped to write this poem and it just got published in a magazine and wanted to share it with you.
Thank you and please mail your stories to

Soft whisper

My best friend spoke to me last night
a soft whisper in my ear.
I woke up and looked around the room,
I was startled, yet I had no fear.

My best friend said that all is fine
Rainbow bridge is so much more.
That there was so much love up there,
even a beautiful ocean shore.

There is fields and fields of green green grass
and the sky has different shades of blue.
There are flowers, mountains, trees and clouds,
everything they said it was, is true.

My best friend whispered in my ear last night
saying "Please don't cry or be sad.
That what was done, had to be done,
for me to live my life now, so be glad".

My best friend said that I did the right thing
an unselfish act on my part.
And that this pain & sadness I feel
will be gone soon from my heart.

I asked my best friend "How could this be
I miss you so much everyday.
That my heart hurts so much for you,
I wish there could of been another way".

My best friend whispered in my ear last night
"You will always be in my heart.
Go on & live and love another,
because we will never really be apart".

My best friend whispered in my ear last night
"it's time for me to go towards the light.
I just wanted to stop & say to you
go on my best friend, I'll be alright.

I carry your unconditional love with me
I have done this from the very start".
I whispered back to my best friend last night,
"I'll always love you with all my heart."

So good-bye my best friend as I looked up at the sky
a shooting star I see in a straight line.
Moving fast across the sky & out of sight,
I whispered,
"Good -bye my best friend, now, I'll be fine".
