Shaggy girl,

You were probably the best friend anybody could ever ask for.

You were always there for me when I was down or need

someone to talk to.

You helped me through some of the roughest times

of my life and I thank you for that!

You gave me fourteen wonderful years and I thank God for them all!

You were and always will be my little girl.

I love you with all my heart.

Love Dad



"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 Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hill for all our special friends

so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food water and sunshine

and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill or old

are restored to health and vigour; those who were hurt or maimed

are made whole and strong again just as we remember

them in our dreams of days 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 your and your special friend finally meet

you cling to each other 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

o long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together........"
