    Oh, when we get to Heaven
    We hope that we will find
    The Souls that one we loved
    Who left us all behind.
    Some left at the right time,
    They left this world in peace.
    Others left too sudden
    Without the chance to say goodbye.
    They were gone before we had
    The chance to even cry.

    There's a special place for grownups;
    A special place for kids;
    Me, I'll be on the other side -
    The side called Rainbow Bridge.
    Across the dark green meadow,
    A-top the hills I'll run,
    Where the colors from the Rainbow
    Glitter from the sun.

    And there I'll find my sweetheart
    running fast toward me,
    Into my arms where he belongs

    Beyond the Rainbow
    As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
    I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
    I saw a wonderous image then of a place that's trouble-free
    Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

    I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
    Were meadows rich and beautiful--lush and green and wide!
    And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
    Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
    My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
    And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.

    I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
    That this place is truly wondrful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
    'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
    And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.

    For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
    We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
    So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
    If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.

    To My Master
    I explained to St. Peter,
    I'd rather stay here,
    Outside the Pearly Gate.
    I won't be a nuisance,
    I won't even bark,
    I'll be very patient and wait.
    I'll be here chewing on a celestial bone,
    No matter how long you may be.
    I'd miss you so much, if I went in alone,
    It wouldn't be Heaven for me...

    A Dog's Prayer
    By Beth Norman Harris

    My Beloved Master, for not heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness
    then the loving heart of me. Do not break my spirit with a stick for though I
    should lick your hand between the blows, your patience and understanding
    will more quickly teach me the things you would have me do. Speak to me
    often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the
    fierce wagging of my tail when your footstep falls upon my waiting ear. When
    it is cold and wet, please take me inside...for I am now a domesticated animal,
    no longer used to the bitter elements...and ask no greater glory than the privildge
    of sitting at your feet beside the hearth...though you had no home, I would rather
    follow you through ice and snow than rest upon the softest pillow in the warmest
    home in all the land...for you are my Devoted Worshipper. Keep my pan filled
    with fresh water, for although I should not reproach you were it dry, I cannot tell
    you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food that I may stay well, to romp and play
    and do your bidding, to walk by your side and stay ready, willing and able to
    protect you with my life, should your life be in danger. And Beloved Master,
    should the Great Master see fit to deprive me of my health or sight, do not turn me away
    from you. Rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me the merciful
    boon to eternal rest...and I will leave you knowing with the last breath I draw,
    my fate as ever safest in your hands.

    To Those Who Love & Those Who Love Me

    When I am gone, release me, let me go-
    I have so many things to see and do.
    You must not tie yourself to me with tears,
    Be happy that we had so many years.
    I gave you my love, you can only guess
    How much you gave me in happiness.
    I thank you for the love you have each shown.
    But now it is time I traveled alone.
    So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must,
    Then let your grief be comforted by trust,
    It is only for a while that we must part,
    So bless the memories within your heart,
    I will not be far away, for life goes on,
    So if you need me, call and I will come.
    Though you can not see or touch me, I will be near.
    And if you listen with your heart, you will hear
    All my love around you soft and clear.
    And then, when you must come this way alone,
    I will greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home".

    Bridge Called Love
    It takes us back to brighter years,
    to happier sunlit days
    and to precious moments
    that will be with us always.

    And these fond recollections
    are treasured in the heart
    to bring us always close to those
    from whom we had to part.

    There is a bridge of memories
    from earth to Heaven above...
    It keeps our dear ones near us
    It's the bridge that we call love.

    An Owner's Plea
    Please, God, if You should hear a scratch on Eden's Gate tonight,
    A gentle whine, a muffled bark; have Peter take a light
    And open up the Pearly Gates and call her Spirit in,
    For I think she lived in Heaven once; please take her back again.

    She may have been a mongrell, without a pedigree,
    Yet she was noble, kind and good; I think You will agree:
    That she'll be very useful where the souls of children play.
    She'll romp with them, and see; Dear God; they do not go astray.

    Just tell her that we're sorry that we could not pat her head,
    And whisper how we loved here 'ere her Spirit fled.
    I pray that when death beckons, and my soul surmounts life's fog,
    I'll rate a place in Heaven, Dear God, beside our dog...

    A Special Place
    You have a special place Dear Lord
    that I know you'll always keep
    A special place reserved for dogs
    when they quietly fall asleep
    With large and airy kennels
    and a yard for hiding bones
    With maybe a little babbling creek
    that chatters over stones.
    With wide green fields and flowers
    for those who never knew
    about running freely under
    Your sky of perfect blue.
    Lord, I know You keep this Special Place
    And so to You I pray,
    For one Special Rottweiler
    Who quietly died today
    She was full of strength and love
    and so very, very wise.
    The puppy look she once had
    Had long since left her eyes.
    She is dearly missed my Lord
    By a very good friend of mine.
    She went to join her ancestors
    To Your land that is Divine
    So, speak to Crimmy softly please
    And give her a warm hello.
    She's a Special gift to You Dear Lord
    From Brenda, who loved her so.

    Time to Go
    The time has come I think you know
    the Lord is calling so I must go
    I love you so much; I wish it wasn't so
    I wish I could stay; I don't want to go

    You're the best family a dog ever had
    so kind and gentle, never mean or mad
    I'll never forget the day that we met
    I was so lucky to become your pet

    You opened your door and showed me your heart
    I'll never forget you; we'll never part
    You loved me and cared for me over the years
    you taught me everything and took away my fears

    The Lord is calling now I must go
    but before I go I want you to know
    I know it hurts to lose a friend
    but I'll always be with you even to the end.

    Heaven's Doggy-Door
    My best friend closed his eyes last night,
    As his head was in my hand.
    The Doctors said he was in pain,
    And it was hard for him to stand.

    The thoughts that scurried through my head,
    As I cradled him in my arms.
    Were of his younger, puppy years,
    And Oh...his many charms.

    Today, there was no gentle nudge
    With an intense "I love you gaze",
    Only a heart that's filled with tears
    Remembering our joy filled days.

    But an Angel just appeared to me,
    And he said, "You should cry no more,
    GOD also loves our canine friends,
    HE's installed a 'doggy-door'!!!

    As I see the Gates of Heaven
    And I know I'm headed home
    I see the great St. Peter
    But alas, he's not alone.

    The tears have blurred my vision
    But I'd know him anywhere
    He sits and waits so patiently
    He knows I'll soon be there.

    I drop to my knees and call his name
    He responds with bounding glee
    He whines and he cries
    The joy is in his eyes
    He's waited so patiently.

    I know it's truly Heaven
    For that it's plain to see
    My faithful friend and companion
    Is once again with me.
