Default Lost my Hound

Tough day yesterday. After 6 good years of companionship, my 11 year old yellow lab gave into kidney failure. Im really going to miss the old girl.

Default The Rainbow Bridge

Lars, I am sorry.

It amazes me that we go into these relationships knowing the average lifespan of a dog, and we do it anyway. Their loyalty and companionship is like no other.

I hope this in some small way helps you with your loss:

THE RAINBOW BRIDGE

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 animals are 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 ears are up! 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/her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again, 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.
