In memory of Cassie

Our little bully went over the rainbow bridge last night. She was the most faithful, lovable dog I've ever had the pleasure of calling my own. She came into this world on June 21,2000 The longest day of the year and summer solstice and left this earth December 21, 2010 the shortest day of the year. My only consolation is she's up in heaven with my parents taking care of her silly face right now. Here's to all those mourning the loss of a pet this holiday....

Rainbow Bridge

There is a bridge connecting heaven and earth
It is called Rainbow Bridge because of its many colours

Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills, valleys with lush green grass

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this special place
There is always food and water and warm spring weather

The old and frail 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 or her into 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

Rest in peace sweet little girl.
