Why does losing a pet hurt so bad?
Filed under Uncategorized
Because they become a part of the family. Because they will love you unconditionally. Because all they want is to be near you and have you pay attention to them. Because they will get up at 5:00 in the morning and walk with you and be happy about it. Because we feed them the same dry boring bits of food everyday – and they are excited about eating it. Because they can’t wait for us to get home. Because they bark at strange noises and give the impression that they will protect us from danger. (Even though most of our pets would just lick someone if they were to actually break into our house)
Here is a lovely poem for you.
The 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 that 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….
