    welcome at rainbow bridge


    On the morning of September 11, 2001, there was an unprecedented amount of
    activity at the Rainbow Bridge. Decisions had to be made. They had to be
    quickly. And, they were.

    An issue, not often addressed here, is the fact that many residents really
    have no loved one for whom to wait. Think of the pups who lived and died in
    hideous puppy mills. No one on earth loved or protected them. What about the

    many who spent unhappy lives tied in backyards? And, the ones who were
    abused, Who are they to wait for?

    We don't talk about that much up here. We share our loved ones as they
    arrive, happy to do so. But we all know there is nothing like having your
    very own person who thinks you are the most special pup in the Heavens.

    Last Tuesday morning a request rang out for pups not waiting for specific
    persons to volunteer for special assignment.. An eager, curious crowd surged

    excitedly forward, each pup wondering what the assignment would be.

    They were told by a solemn voice that unexpectedly, all at once, over 4,000
    loving people had left Earth long before they were ready. All the pups, as
    all pups do, felt the humans' pain deep in their own hearts. Without hearing

    more, there was a clamoring among them - "May I have one to comfort?" "I'll
    take two, I have a big heart." "I have been saving kisses forever."

    One after another they came forward begging for assignment. One cozy-looking

    fluffy pup hesitantly asked, "Are there any children coming? I would be very

    comforting for a child 'cause I'm soft and squishy and I always wanted to be

    hugged." A group of Dalmatians came forward asking to meet the Firemen and
    their friends. The larger working breeds offered to greet the Police
    and make them feel at home. ! Little dogs volunteered to do what they do
    best, cuddle and kiss.

    Dogs who on Earth had never had a kind word or a pat on the head, stepped
    forward and said, "I will love any human who needs love."

    Then all the dogs, wherever on Earth they originally came from, rushed to
    Rainbow Bridge and stood waiting, overflowing with love to share - each tail

    wagging an American Flag.

    That is such a touching poem. I could reread it many times over and never tire of it - believe it was posted in another topic also.

    I received that in my email too. But I also could never tire of it. Simply beautiful.

    I copied and pasted that and it has been duly printed and posted on the notice board we have at home. My mum read that and cried... it's really beautiful and touching. I could reread it over and over and it would always be wonderful.
    I think I own my dog, but it owns my heart and home
