Dedicated to Ceasar

We loved you Ceasar and we'll miss you greatly.

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....

  1. Mary - I am so sorry for your loss. Having lost dogs myself, I too know the connection we make with them (one of mine was a rescue as well).

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss, Mary. I currently have a dog which I rescued from the animal shelter over 11 years ago, when he was just a puppy. We've been through a lot together. He's getting very old now, and I suspect he will be joining your Ceasar in the not-too-distant future. It is comforting to know that they'll both be waiting for us one day across the Rainbow Bridge.

  3. Mary- I'm so sorry for the loss of your dog. He was a beautiful dog!

  4. I am so sorry. Those of us who love dogs feel your pain, I am so glad you know of the Rainbow Bridge poem, I would have gone out and posted it here if you did not already have it.

    Hugs andfairy dust galore, and the 3 yorks send puppy prayers as well.

  5. I have a few in Rainbow Bridge...sorry for your loss

  6. Very sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet little Ceasar. We lost our shelter-adopted cat Rocky a couple of years ago, and I still think of him.

  7. Oh, Mary, I'm so sorry for Ceasar's passing. It's such a heartbreak when a beloved pet passes. They are such a part of our family, often constant companions, and we miss them so when they leave. Maybe Ceasar has already met my girls there near the bridge. I have 3 waiting for me.... Blessings to you.
