Rainbow Bridge                                         

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.  It is called The Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors.  Just this side of The Rainbow Bridge there is a land of hills, flower-filled meadows, and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to the Rainbow Bridge. The meadows and hills are for all 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 frail 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 the Rainbow Bridge...together.


Coral, my peach faced lovebird suddenly went to Rainbow Bridge recently.
I miss my friend but I know he's always with me.
