Rainbow Bridge by Author Unknown
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….
Do I Go Home Today? by Sandi Thompson
My new family brought me home, all cradled in their arms
They cuddled me and smiled at me, said I was one most charmed
They played with me and laughed with me and showered me with toys
I sure did love my family, ’specially the girls and boys.
The children loved to feed me, and they gave me special treats
They even let me sleep with them, all snuggled in their sheets.
I used to go for walks with them, oft’ several times a day
They even fought to hold the leash, I’m very proud to say.
These are the things I’ll ne’er forget – a cherished memory
’cos now I’m in a shelter, without my family.
They used to laugh and praise me when I played with that old shoe
But they never told the difference between the old ones and the new.
The kids and I would grab a rag, for hours we would tug
So I thought I’d done the right thing when I chewed the bedroom rug.
They said that I had lost control and would have to live outside
This I never understood, although I tried and tried.
The walks all stopped and, one by one, they said they had no time
I wish I could have changed things, I wish I’d known my crime.
My life became so lonely in that backyard on a chain
I barked and barked the whole day long, to stop from going insane.
So they brought me to this shelter, embarrassed when asked why.
They said I’d caused an allergy and then kissed me goodbye
If only I’d had classes, when I’d still been just a pup
I was never hard to handle, I was only growing up.
“He only has the one day left,” I heard the kennel maid say.
Hurrah !! Hurrah!! A second chance? Do I go home today?
I have subscribed for both of the above on Crufts. They had stands where for 3 pounds you can buy last issue of the magazine and receive the bag of goodies.
While taking the subscription Your Dog gave me the bag of goodies, even that I didn’t buy a magazine, as I already had the last issue. It made me feel surprisingly content and been walking proud with their promotional bag.
Bitter taste left after Dogs Monthly subscription, as they not even considered giving me the plastic bag for the book (which you receive when subscribe), not even mention the bag of goodies. Still, both magazines are great and I cannot choose my favourite based on the content, but based on the customer service, definitely Your Dogs RULEZ!
