Looking For Rainbow Bridge And Heart Dog Info

This morning we said good-bye to Popeye, my sister's Sheppard cross. Popeye was a rescue who came into their lives as a puppy when my nephew was 6 or 7 years old and has been his best doggie friend ever since, his heart dog.

 

Over the past while I have seen two articles posted in Remembrance - one was about the Rainbow Bridge and the other was about what makes a heart dog a heart dog. I think these might be helpful for my nephew but I can't find them, despite doing a couple of searches. If anyone has a link they could provide me, I would be most grateful.

 

Thank you, and Happy New Year!

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 The 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 and 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 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. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away 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...

 

 

and one of my personal favorites...

 

I AM WITH YOU

 

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.

I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,

"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

 

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,

You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.

I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

 

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.

I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.

I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "it's me."

 

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.

I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.

To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

 

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew ...

in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning and say

"goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."

 

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,

I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.

Be patient, live your journey out ... then come home to be with me.

I'm ending 2009 in tears, with a red nose, puffy eyes and missing my Bear girl. I know she's not in pain anymore and she's running with Angels....but do I have to ache for her so?
