It's Hard to lose a pet you love
You miss it very much.
You'd like to hold it close again
and feel its furry touch.
But there's a place in heaven
for our special animal friends...
Day and night, there's angel light
and love that never ends.
God knows each dog and kitty cat,
and calls them by their names.
He fills up all their water bowls
and plays their favorite games.
The angels give them lots of hugs
and tickle all their tummies.
They teach them to do awesome tricks,
then give them tasty yummies.
So may this furry angel friend
remind you, 24/7...
Your pet is happy, safe and sound,
In God's arms up in heaven.

The Last Battle
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR A RESPONSIBLE PET OWNER
1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years.
Any separation from you will be very painful.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
3. Place your trust in me-it is crucial for my well-being.
4. Don't be angry with me for long, and dont lock me up as punishment.
You have your work, your friends, you entertainment. I HAVE ONLY YOU!
5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words,
I understand your voice when it's speaking to me.
6. Be aware that however you treat me, I'll NEVER forget it.
7. Before you hit me, remember that i have teeth that could easily
crush the bones in your hand, but I choose not to bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if
something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food,
I've been out in the sun too long, or my heart may be getting old and weak.
9. Take care of me when I get old. You, too, will grow old.
10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, "I can't bear to watch it"
or, "let it happen in my absence." Everything is easier for ME if you are there.
Remember, I love you
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 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.
