"The Rainbow Bridge"

The earth and the sky are joined together by a bridge called "The Rainbow Bridge" because of its wonderful colours. When an animal, that has been especially close to someone during its life, dies, goes to this bridge. In this wonderful place, there are fresh and sweet-smelling meadows, the brooks flow and our special friends can run and play all together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our dear friends are warm and comfortable: all the animals that were ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those hurt or maimed are made healthy and strong again. In this place animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; each of them misses someone very special to them, someone they left behind. They all run and play together, but it may happen that one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Its bright eyes are intent, its eager body quivers. Suddenly it begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, its legs carrying it faster and faster: you are spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. It kisses your face again and again, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet; your hands caress the beloved head again, it asks you for cuddles, it is happy, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart,. Now you can cross Rainbow Bridge together, no more separate
