K A R E N + B J
Yesterday, I was invited to join Karen and her beautiful dog B J for his final walk. What a more fitting place than that, with "England's Finest View" at Sutton Bank in Thirsk.
14 yrs & 4 months old, B J has had an incredible life as a showing champion, and stud dog, having fathered 17 special assistance dogs who have done on to help the blind, deaf and children with special needs. Karen told me on their session of the times he would go and pinch a puppy from the litter and take it to his own bed for cuddles.
The 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 vigour; 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
