Tazz is waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge

Saturday, December 29, 2012

TAZZ sleeping by his Christmas Tree before his journey to Rainbow Bridge.
July 17th, 1996 ~~~~~~~~~December 24th, 2012

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.....

    Sorry about your pet, but 16 is old for a dog, so you were lucky to have Tazz all that time. My cat, Mr. Wilkes was 16 and I know how lucky I was to have him. He hated dogs. emoticon emoticon emoticon
