Memories Golden Retrievers
Memories of those gone,
but not forgotten...
These pages are dedicated to those who have gone to the bridge and are waiting so patiently. They are forever in my heart and will remain there for all eternity. Each of you were special in your own unique ways. My life has been forever enriched and changed.
The Rainbow BridgeJust 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.... Author unknown...
WAITINGI got to the gate of Heaven yesterday after we said good-bye. I began to miss you terribly, because I heard you cry. Suddenly there was an Angel and she asked me to enter Heaven's gate. I asked her if I could stay outside for someone who'd be late. I wouldn't make much noise you see, I wouldn't bark or howl. I'll only wait here patiently and play with my tennis ball. The Angel said I could stay right here and wait for you to come because Heaven just wouldn't be Heaven if I went in alone. So I'll wait right here, you take your time, but keep me in your heart. Because Heaven just wouldn't be Heaven without you to warm my heart.
