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....

I'm very sorry for your loss... I can tell she was loved from your posts, and from the picture you shared of her.
oh my god that is so beautiful, we lost our Maxwell the day after Thanksgiving 3 years ago it was the hardest day of my life and many days after. my wife and i don't have children but we have 3 kids and they are 3 Labs. they are our lives. when i saw the picture of the rainbow bridge i started to weep, i actually built a bridge in my backyard were our Maxwell use to run out to the back permiter of the fence and chase the deer or turkeys. that was his spot and is today. Dogs and family pets are the truelly the greatest gift to our spirits and well being. take care
