To know when that time has come?
To know that you may have to make the decision to put your beloved friend to sleep is one of the most difficult situations you will ever face. Remember, that if your pet has no quality of life and or is suffering pain you can make that last decision for him or her.
And that is a gift that you possess and not something to feel guilty about as so many owners do.
Another decision people find difficult is what to do with the remains of your beloved pet after it is put to sleep. Some people are unable to bury their dog and decide that cremation is the best option. Ashes can be returned to you and again your wishes are always respected in this difficult time.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
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; those who were hurt or maimed are made who 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; 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
