    What does the rainbow bridge mean? Do people actually think that our pets die and are jettisoned to some magical bridge with a rainbow constantly hovering over it? Is it a bridge formed out of a rainbow? Then what happens? So.... they're dead, go to the rainbow bridge and then what? They are like, in heaven, living in eternal bliss..... is that what you all mean. Does it have something to do with the song "somewhere over the rainbow! I am sincerely curious, otherwise I would not inquire. Please correct me if I am mistaken. Sounds like a very interesting take, that's for sure. I have never had a clue as to what the hell this means. Merely guesses.

    The often shared story, based on an old Norse Legend:

    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....

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.

    Yes, the first time I read it, my heart knew it must be true. And I look forward to seeing so many beloved animals there - and likely many Pet Talk humans, shoo would think of that as heaven itself. Like Paul

    I hated it as well. especially since some of the teachers here were questionable. my 4th grade teacher said "Texas is the biggest state." while this is true if youre looking at a map it is indeed the biggest drawn state but its over all not the biggest state. an my science teacher pointed to a tree the class was standing under an asked "what kind of tree is that?" it was very clear to me that it was a Nordmann Fir but she said "it is a cedar tree" ... *smh*

    just seen the rainbow bridge image. its really pretty

    God will prepare everything for our perfect happiness in heaven. If it takes my dog being there, I know hell be there. Billy Graham

    This gives me so much comfort. When I cross the bridge I hope to be reunited with several loved and much missed family pets (not only Cassie, my RB girl but others too). Also Pet Talk people, dogs, cats and pets!

    On a completely different note- Chicagoland has a forecast for more snow tomorrow, possible freezing rain in the afternoon. I know December was mild, but Im ready for nicer weather. We did a huge snowstorm, we did a few days of very cold temperatures. Hurry up, spring!

    I'm ready for spring, and I used to love snow and cold weather.

    I haven't been outside since January 20th.

    I love to get into the car and turn on the heater until it gets HOT inside the car.

    A few weeks ago it was sooooo cold outdoors the car never heated up.
