When you have dedicated your life to dogs, each and every one of them has a piece of your heart, each of them leaves a memory of love and devotion and each of them breaks your heart when they leave.
Although I have said good-bye to many dogs over the years they are never forgotten.
So, I salute you my old friends and know that at the end of my days I will join you at the rainbow bridge. I look forward to embracing you on that day, once again.
I thank-you for your contribution to the quality of my life and the dedication you have selfishly given me over the last 36 years.
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....
