I am sure you all probably wonder what www.mydixiegirl.com is. Well Dixie was my wonderful German Shepherd I lost back in 2008 to cancer. She was only 4 years old when she went to the vet for a regular dental cleaning and they found a tumor in the roof of her mouth. She died 2 weeks later. She was my best friend, my heart, my soul and I miss her so much. So I named my website after her, so that nobody will ever forget her!
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 and 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 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. The bright eyes are intent, the eager body quivers. Suddenly she begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her 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 her 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 pass over Rainbow Bridge together….
I got this poem from a good friend, thanks Janean!
