Over the Rainbow…

Soms komt de tijd van afscheid nemen te vroeg of geheel onverwacht.
Soms is het als een sluipend wezen en ben je er op bedacht.
Telkens weer, zoveel pijn en verdriet, maar er aan ontkomen kun je niet…

Ondanks de wilskracht van onze Vachtjes en onze goede zorgen, komt er ooit een tijd van afscheid nemen…
Vreemd genoeg komt die tijd vaak in de herfst…Die druilerige dagen van het jaar zijn voor ons dubbel gehuld in regen, tranen en mistige velden van verdriet..

Wij herinneren onze overleden vachtjes op onze eigen rainbowbridge waar hun pootafdrukjes voor eeuwig een kostbaar aandenken zullen zijn… Voor altijd in ons hart.

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 who had been ill and old are restored to health
and vigour; 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
