It has been a really difficult week for me! You never think that saying good-bye to a pet could be so hard. Bailey has been a great dog for so many years! Yeah he learned how to climb the fence so he could go run around town with his girlfriends but we still loved him. hes been to doggy jail but he never meant any harm. The best thing about Bailey is that you knew he loved you! when i would be upset he would sit with me just listen to me talk! the last two months before i left for college he would stay up late with me and watch the Olympics! then he would sleep at the foot of my bed and work his way up to having his own pillow so in the morning he was snuggling with me! he was my dads little boy that would lay on his back on dads arm so and watch tv with him, force his way to a spot at the kitchen table! he was a spoiled brat that craved undying attention. and he got it! He will truly be missed and no dog can take his place! he has a final resting place in our hearts and backyard! Poor Nikki misses her best friend!
Cute Pet Poem!
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 hills for all of 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 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....
