The Rainbow Bridge

Thank you for all your condolences. This has been a very hard week. We picked up Cesar's ashes on Wednesday and they sent this poem with him. I had a real hard time getting through this even now.

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called The Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail are made young again. Those who are maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.
There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So, each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up! The nose twitches! The eyes are staring! And this one suddenly runs from the group.

You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.

That is so hard to do. I've done it with three pets, and it never gets easier.

It doesn't get easier. Cesar is running around with my little cocker spaniel Brandy though and I just know they are having the time of their life. xo.
