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 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, someone who was left
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 begins to quiver. Suddenly, he breaks
from the group, flying over the green grass, 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 our face; your hands
again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into those
trusting eyes, so long gone from your life, but never absent
from your heart. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together...
The Las Vegas Doberman and
Dachshund Rescue group was established in honor of my beloved
pets who have gone on to the Rainbow Bridge.
