Rainbow Bridge Memorial 2018

Today is Rainbow Bridge Memorial Day. Today is a special day set aside that we take time to remember our four-legged fur babies that passed away before us. Many of you are familiar with the Rainbow Bridge Poem (it can be found below), but there is an interesting history that can be found on Wikipedia as well. I have attached a link here for those who are interested. Thank you to those of you who have taken the time to send us pictures of your loved ones and shared the stories of them with us over the years. We have been so blessed to know each and every patient and fur baby!

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....
