It is the feeling of forum members that they would like a special section where the sad loss of our much loved babies can be posted. This is to be called "Rainbow Bridge" and is dedicated to Adele's Angel Bunny and Gina's CheekyBun and all the others who are flying with the Angels. Much as we all wish our beloved pets to be with us forever, it is such a comfort to have the caring thoughts of our friends when the sad time comes. Likewise, we all want to give our help and comfort and show that we care. It is for this reason that "Rainbow Bridge" will come to be. No one wants to miss showing how much they care which can happen as not everyone is able to visit the forum as much as they would like to.

Rainbow Bridge will be ideal to post photos, memories and dedications.

*Admin edit 8/7/19* The loss of a much loved pet can be very difficult to come to terms with. I've included some links to organisations where you can find information and advice on dealing with pet bereavement.

Grieving for the loss of a pet, whether through death, parting or enforced separation, can be a sad and difficult experience.

What is the Rainbow Bridge


~ Rainbow Bridge ~

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....

Deepest Sympathy
For the Loss of Your Pet
