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 the Rainbow Bridge together.......

Arnold 1255
Arnold came into our lives in the summer of 2013, and left us much too soon on January 13, 2019. You were always a day brightener Arnold, and were more than willing to be vocal to remind us of that when need be. You taught us the importance of rest, regular meal times, and outdoor walks, and know that we have not and will not forget that. We already miss the flapping of your ears, your big head and front paws on the side of the bed just to let us know it’s time to get up, and of course your unconditional love. One of your favorite resting places on the couch misses you, we love and miss you, and wish you could have been with us longer. Say hi to Jason and Daisey on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge, greet them with a big flap of your ears, and rest easy knowing that Linus is still here taking good care of us and your home.
