Rainbow Bridge



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....

Please take a few a minutes to visit our tribute to our beautiful, loving Dalmatian girl who passed on to the Rainbow Bridge on November 7, 2004 after a long fight with vestibular apparatus malfunction (doggie vertigo) and a possible stroke.  Abby adopted Jennifer at 5 years old (after already having a litter of 13 healthy, purebread Dalmatian puppies). Abby blessed us for the next 9 years and she will be greatly missed.

Also, we want to take a moment to thank Doctor John Carver and all our friends at the Humane Animal Hospital for all their support and care of Abby (and us) as she struggled through this difficult time.

Almost two years ago, we unfortunately had to make the same difficult for our racing Greyhound, Sakkara Autumn - we just called him Autumn.  He was just 9 years old when he was diagnosed with bone cancer.  We decided to make Autumn as comfortable as possible until just after Christmas 2002 when Autumn told us it was time for him to go.  It was as if he had stayed around just long enough to see us through our wedding / honeymoon, and then went on to his rainbow bridge.  And, now, Abby has joined him.
