“We are born so that we can learn how to live a good life, like loving everybody all the time and being nice.” “Dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.”
This is "Our Rainbow Bridge" and I call it this because it "IS" ours... yours and mine. It's a place where we can share and laugh and even cry when we need to. I have lost many pets and will lose many more and I can take comfort in knowing that I can come here and dream again, and I hope you do too. It is so hard when that time comes, but know that they are always by your side when you go to sleep and then you can let them run in your heart and mind again...Sweet Dreams

Heaven is the place of final and complete happiness, God has prepared for us - and if animals are necessary to make us happy, then you can be sure God will have them there." Rev. Billy Graham

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies who has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special border collies so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and "our" border collies are warm and comfortable.

All the dogs 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 dogs 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 border collie 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 dog, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....forever....
