 Rainbow Bridge Poem ...

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 .... Author unknown ...

ODE TO CHIEF

by Tom Brasseur

His name was Chief I'm proud to say,

as dominant male he held the sway.

Named for Snow Chief of race horse fame,

he pulled the sled at speeds not tame.

His coat was Black, his eyes were Blue,

a Siberian Husky through and through.

He ruled his mates with a velvet glove,

and served his masters with purest love.

His clownish ways brought endless smiles,

and on the team he'd pull for miles.

Within the show ring he was great,

but cherished pet was his true fate.

For 14 years we enjoyed  this boy,

he offered to us his smiles and joy.

Fond memories we share with team mates here,

at the Bridge he waits with others so dear.
