Anne, Daddy's Little Girl
There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass. When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals 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 in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and 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.

I lost a treasured friend today The little dog that use to lay Her gentle head upon my knee And share her silent thoughts with me.
She'll come no longer to my call Retrieve no more her favorite ball, A voice far greater than my own has called her to his golden throne.
Although my eyes are filled with tears I thank him for the happy years He let her spend down here with me and for her love and loyalty.
When its time for me to go and join her there, this much I know I shall not fear the transient dark For she will greet me with a bark.

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me, and I am not there to see; the sun will rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me. I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today, remembering how I'd lay my head in your lap that special way. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name and petted me with her hand. She said my place was ready, in Heaven far above, and that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But, as I turned to heel away, a tear fell from my eye, for all my life I never thought that I would have to die.
I had so much to live for, so many sits and downs to do, it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you. I thought about our lives together, I know you must be sad, I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had. Remember how I'd nudge your hand, and poke you with my nose? The Frisbee I would gladly chase, the bad guy, I'd "bark and hold".
If I could relive yesterday, just even for awhile, I'd wag my tail and kiss you, just so I could see you smile. But, then I fully realized, that this could never be; for emptiness and memories will take the place of me. And when I thought of treats and toys, I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you and when I did, my dog-heart filled with sorrow.
But then I walked through Heaven's gate, and felt so much at home; as God looked down and smiled at me, from His beautiful throne.
He said, "This is eternity, and now we welcome you, today your life on earth is past, but here it starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last; for you see, each days the same day, there's no longing for the past. Now you have been so faithful, so trusting, loyal and true; though there were times you did things, you knew you shouldn't do. But good dogs are forgiven, and now at last you're free; so won't you sit here by my side and wait right here with me?"
So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart. For every time you think of me, I'm right there, in your heart.

A better dog never walked this earth. So pleasant a personality, always pleasing and loving, never asking or demanding. The perfect companion. Watched over his little GracieLee like he was her daddy.
You a dog in Heaven, Lord?
there room for just one more?
my little dog died today
waiting at Your door.
take him into Heaven, Lord.
keep him there for me,
feed him, pet him, love him, Lord,
That's all he'll ask of Thee.
