I woke up today feeling a bit melancholy. I wasn't sure why until I looked at the calender and realized that it was 4 years ago today that I lost one of my best friends...my beloved dog Blizzard.
It was suppose to have been the storm of the century on that Saturday of March 13, 1993. Blizzard was a pup found in the snow storm hence his name. My former husband found him and from the moment I laid eyes on that dog I knew he was mine! And he was mine for almost 15 years...a third of my time here on earth to that point was spent with Blizzard. I went through many changes, most of the being good, during the years which followed my divorce. But no matter what was going on in my life, the one thing I could always count on was a tail wag, a tennis ball dropped in my lap, and the silly look on Blizzard's face that simply said "Come on...I dare you to throw that ball!"
You brought so much comfort and joy to my life and I still miss you Blizzy, very much. But I know that one day I will meet you again at the Rainbow Bridge.
June 1992 - March 5 2008
There is a place connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food, water, and warm spring weather. The old frail animals are young again and those who are maimed made whole again. They play all day with each other.
There is only one thing missing, they are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. So each day they run and play until the day comes when one of them suddenly stops playing and looks up. The nose twitches! The ears are up! And suddenly this one runs from the group.
You have been seen and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her into your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.
