Today is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. In honor of the beloved pets we’ve lost, we dedicate this post to the our multi-legged best friends that have stuck by our side through thick and thin.

If you’ve ever mourned a pet, you’ll want to read the amazing poem that has helped so many grieving pet owners make it though their loss.

The Rainbow Bridge, written by an anonymous author, talks about a pets waiting process and reminds people that they WILL be reunited with the beloved pet they have lost…

“The Rainbow Bridge”

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth.
It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of all its beautiful 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 were sick, hurt or in pain are made whole again.
There is only one thing missing,
they are not with their special person who loved them so much 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 runs from the group!
You have been seen and when you and your special friend meet,
you take him in your arms and hug him.
He licks and kisses your face again and again –
and you look once more into the eyes of your best friend and trusting
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together never again to be apart.
