I was falling, no,I was flying. And when I landed and opened my eyes, I saw that my paws were on the softest, greenest grass. All around me there were wildflowers, and the bluest sky I had ever seen. There was only one thing wrong with this situation: I had no idea where I was. It wasn't home, that's for sure. I put my nose to the ground, and started sniffing, hoping that my sniffer would lead me in the right direction. Soon, I came across a rabbit. Normally, I loved chasing rabbits, but this one seemed different. There was something about him that told me not to chase him, so I sat down before him, and tilted my head.
"Who are you?" I asked, and leaned down to get a closer sniff.
"I am Caramel, but you may call me Bunnyman. Welcome to Rainbow Bridge, Sheila."
I blinked. I had heard of this place when I was a pup, all animals know of this place. The place when the old are young, the sick are well, and there is plenty of room to romp and play. Everyone is a friend here, and everyone is waiting for that special moment, that moment when 'they' arrive.
:Rainbow Bridge? But surely I'm not..." I trailed off, and then suddenly it all made sense, and yet at the same time it didn't. I didn't feel ready when I had woken up to go for a walk this morning. It just felt like a normal start, to a normal day. But then, at one point everything went black, and then I woke up here. It had seemed that I had departed from my old life. It wasn't fair, there were so many things I hadn't done yet. So many smells I hadn't smelled yet. It just didn't seem right.
I looked down at Bunnyman. "How do you know who I am? Why are you here?"
The rabbit looked up at me. "I was once sick, but now I am well. I lived with your family in my younger days, and I have come to greet you. We'll be friends you know." He seemed to smile at me, and somehow I knew he was right. "Come, there is one more creature you have to meet." He hopped off, and I followed trotting by his side.
We soon came to another dog, or should I say puppy. She was a soft brown, and had big brown eyes. She trotted over to Bunnyman and nuzzled him. "Hello Bunnyman", she said softly, and then looked over to me. "Hello Sheila."
This time, I didn't ask how she knew my name.
"I'm Rosie, and like Bunnyman, I was once sick, but I'm well again. I too, lived with your family for a short while. They took me in, and for 4 weeks, gave me the best life I have ever known. I chose them because I knew they would be good people." She trotted over to me and sat between my front legs and looked up at me. "Welcome home Sheila, I've always wanted a sister."
More will join us, I'm sure of it. And we will all be friends and family. And we will be here, waiting for that special moment to come.
To those of you who have lost a pet, may you feel peace in knowing that they are in a better place, waiting for that special moment to come.
