The Rainbow Bridge
Rainbow Bridge is a place which is often referred
to by people whose pets have
died. It is a small story that was written some
between 1980 and 1992, which has gained wide
popularity amongst animal
lovers who have lost a pet, especially in
no major religion specifically refers to such a
place for pets, the
belief shows similarities with the Bifröst Bridge
of Norse Mythology.
The Bifrost Bridge
(Also known as "The Rainbow Bridge") is the bridge
that connects Asgard to Earth. It is how gods and
creatures travel between the two worlds.
There are many other Myths and Legends
about the Bifrost Bridge, but they bear no real
comparison with the Childrens Rainbow Bridge for
their Pets to travel to the other side.
This is the story I like best
Far away above the trees,
where only the rainbow goes, there is a beautiful
green meadow. But this is no ordinary meadow, this
is a special place where all the creatures of the
earth might cross to get to the Rainbow Bridge that
leads them to heaven.
is such a wonderful place that no matter how old ar
ill it may have been this side of the meadow, as it
crosses the meadow and then crosses the bridge, all
is made whole again. Here is the place that the pet
can wait until their owner is ready to come and
join them once more.
When that day comes, the pet somehow knows
that they are coming and they run back over the
bridge and wait patiently until there owner arrives
and they are reunited, never to be parted
I like to think
that if the owner was a horrible person and
mistreated the animal that , that owner wouldn't be
allowed to cross the Bright Green Meadow, for I am
sure there is no place over the Rainbow Bridge for
the cruel and the unkind.
