I have read the rainbow bridge story today on tbh and my girl supposedly passed Monday morning. I was fishing at my house Sunday evening thinking about her and snapped this picture . we have one other pup that was special that we lost and now that I read the rainbow story I wonder if she sent me a message Sunday evening when she was going . I dont think it's just a coincidence

For those who haven't read it before--

THE RAINBOW BRIDGE

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.

So sorry for your loss PB. It's good to see that you have another one there to hopefully take up the slack and the heartbreak that you feel from losing the other one. If it's any consolation, 15 years is a great life for a beautiful dog like the one you lost.

That’s tough, and I hate it for you.

We were so close to putting our 14.5 yo Golden to sleep. Eaten up with cancer, and when we got her from the kennel after being gone for a week, she was vomiting and had the worse case of diahrrea you have ever smelled! Stayed at the vet for two days getting medicated. Got her home totally non responsive; hadn’t eaten nor drank for 3 days and weak as a dishrag. We decided to give her another day or two, and she started eating a little of the vets prescription food.

She started responding and made a remarkable recovery! Still, she is on borrowed time.

I read this while at work, and started crying, drove home and still have a lump in my throat. I had never heard of the rainbow bridge, but I pray that who ever came up with it knows something. Because I lost mine two years ago and I still can't get over it. I pray for you and your family, it's sooooo hard, and the hole it leaves in your heart never seems to heal. But the rainbow bridge, will heal it completely. I told mine to meet me by the moon, when my time here is done ( I always prayed that we would leave here together somehow, but she was called home first) I know what your going through and man it's hard, I pray every day that we will be together again. Knee mail sent your way. I can't see the screen any more, I must end this here.
