They have all given us Friendship, Loyalty, Love and Happiness all their lives.
Each one one different--but the same--

There was also (Kates)- McDuff the cat (Turned out to be a female!!) Very much her own person!
Nikki and Toni's -Snowy - the rabbit who thought she was a dog and was fed alongside the cat and dogs. Also Cindy the rabbit who bullied poor Dip mercilessly
and last but not least---' Dip ' my daughter Toni's cat who kept presenting me daily with her latest 'Kill'!
and the guinea pigs...Oh yes! we remember them.....all of them( they are very prolific breeders!)

Also those who shared our lives for many years before we were parted from them.
 Always in our hearts and thoughts. Those lovely memories of them will never leave us.

Not in our name but in our hearts.

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 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 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....
