Q: THE WORDS TO THE "RAINBOW BRIDGE"

Diane C.

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....

All dogs go to Heaven or I don't want to do there.
I think Will Rogers wrote this - I agree.

We just had our Hootch cremated and when we received his remains there was a card with the Rainbow Bridge tucked in it. The version in our card is a little different but it was written by M. A. Preston. Very special.

What a sweet, sweet, thought! I was there in the field as I read the story. And, I remember all of my pets that have passed on.
