I felt compelled to say this and if it's deemed inappropriate then it can be deleted. There is a song by the booth Brothers that starts out like this..."If I leave this world of sorrow sometime before you do just look for me in Heaven and we'll talk the ages through. But, if at first you fail to see me let me tell you where I'll be-I'll be thanking Christ my Savior for saving a wretch like me."

I believe in the great possibillity that when our beloved companions leave this world and cross the Bridge it will not be the last account we will have of them. I don't think they were created and given such a short time on this earth but were made for our companionship and pleasure to endow them with love care and attention throughout their short lifespan. Animals don't need a Savior because they don't require redemption as they are innocent and don't sin such as we do. I'm comforted by the verse of Scripture in Job that goes like this-" Job 12:10 (KJV) In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.

There are other verses in various books of the Bible that declare we will see our loved ones again, not only human but animal as well and I glory in that promise. So, when my beloved Bubba departs this life and I later follow, after looking for the one who died for me first and thank him for what he's done for me all throughout my life, I want to see my Mom and Dad. Then, I want to ask where I might find my Bubba and I'm sure He will point to an area beyond the streets of transparent gold and just over the Pearly Gates to a place laden with thick, lush grass where I'll see a particular short legged tri colored Corgi boy named Bubba who will race toward me smiling at my presence and I'll get to hold him and watch him play forevermore. I'll get to see my Katie who went before him as well.

Have faith, those of you who have lost your loved ones recently and long ago. We have this precious promise that this is not all there is here. As the Apostle Paul said, "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable." I'd like to say also that if in this life only we have the capability of touching and loving our companions, nevermore to see them once they depart, we are of all people most miserable.

Thank you for posting this. I just lost my little boy Corky of 11 years to cancer. I was and still am heartbroken, but I know someday we'll be together again.
I absolutely believe this too. I can't imagine that God could create such beautiful beings and not accept them back in to His kingdom. The first time I read "Rainbow Bridge" after I lost my beloved Dillon, such a feeling of comfort came over me, that it clinched my belief. I do believe we will see all of our beloved animals and humans again, and be reunited forever.
I have asked many pastors, priests, etc...and generally all have said the same. That gives me great comfort--to know that all of this is only temporary, and the eternal will be AWESOME!
I love this...

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

I Cor 2:9

and this...

Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. 14We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18Therefore encourage each other with these words.

I Thes 4:13-18

Anyone who believes in the bible and God's word should be over joyed at this precious promise.
The promise in Thessalonians brings much comfort, as does this:

..the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.

Romans 8:2

The above promise applies to all people who believe in God's word AND our animal friends. Good news indeed!
I just finished reading a book by Sylvia Browne titled "All pets go to Heaven", you may like it too.
This is so beautiful, but I have already decided that my beloved Picadilly is to never cross over the rainbow until I go.

I encourage anyone who believes there is life after this to read also, "Cold Noses at the Pearly Gates" by Gary Kurz. It will inspire you and bring hope. My Corgi is my life, and;if there is such a thing as a soul mate, he's mine. He's more like me than I am! I can't fathom life without him yet I must face reality and know that either he or I will leave here one day. My selfish side wants to go first as I know all too well the inevitable pain there will be if it were the other way around. When your best friend and all you have is your Corgi it's a humbling feeling to know their little lives are so short in comparison to ours and at best, perhaps 12-16 years, is the most for them.


Overlook their faults and failures when they don't live up to your expectations and training as the day will come when you'd give all your tomorrows for just five minutes on the couch with them again.

Yes, that was beautiful and brought tears to my eyes as well.. Thank you for sharing..
