• Rainbow Bridge

    From Sean Dennis@1:18/200 to All on Wed Feb 13 19:23:18 2019
    For those who have lost a pet, here's something for you. This is a poem called
    "Rainbow Bridge". The author
    is unknown.

    ===
    There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
    It is called Rainbow Bridge because of its many splendid colors.
    Just this side of Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills,
    and valleys with lush, green grass.
    When beloved pets die, they go 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 all day 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 ears are up!
    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 more into the eyes of your trusting pet.
    Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...
    Never again to be separated.

    Sean,

    For those who have lost a pet, here's something for you. This is a poem cal
    "Rainbow Bridge". The author
    is unknown.

    The dachshund Janice and I had is surely waiting for me...she's
    already there with him. He's probably wanting a dish of green
    beans...with salt on them. <G>

    When she gave him some once...without salt...he sniffed them, turned
    up his nose, and walked off. She lameneted "Oh, great!! I forgot to salt them!!".

    I said "What??!! Does he want a bottle of red wine to go with his
    beans??". She growled "He ain't gettin' none of my Jamaica White Rum".
    :P

    I know of cases where the dog required garlic as well.

    In a word, wow. So much for the cats being "finicky". :P

    That would probably make anyone a bit salty, if you catch my meaning.

    Later,
