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
