On January 20, 2004, I lost my best friend.  Shasta came to live with my family when I was almost 12 (making her 15 years old!!)  After having to put my first dog, Lolly to sleep, my dad showed up with a little white fuzzball who had been abandoned and needed a good home.  Years passed and we both grew up.  No more Barbies for me, which meant no more new Barbie legs for Shasta.  Instead of riding around in the baby carriage, she pulled me on my rollerskates.  And when the day finally ended, into my bed we'd go.  Two heads on one pillow.  One with tousled brown hair, the other with fluffy white fur.

I miss you Shasty girl.



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....
