    Rainbow Bridge?

    Will someone tell me where that poem or site is about Rainbow Bridge? I don't think I dreamed it up...

    Ernie (1986-2003)

    Sirrahsim (my daughter) with Ernie

    We got Ernie when my daughter was two. This cat absolutely adored her and it was mutual. I have photos of Ernie wearing a babydoll dress and bonnet and being pushed in a doll carriage. NOBODY could get away with this but his human (Sirrahsim) He died a few days before her wedding in April and we are so thankful she was still at home.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Here is the poem and a website that you can goto.

    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....

    Consider adopting a special needs pet, they deserve a chance too!
