Miller (1998-2010)

The Rainbow Bridge
inspired by a Norse legend

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.

I loved this little dog....even though he did irritate me some.  He was a funny little dog. 
He loved to sneak out of the house and head to the trail out back and scout out rabbits...he would always return at some point....
He just had to place his mark on almost everything...
He "owned" our cats and other dog Salli.
He always had to announce to the house when there was someone at the door or walking by.
He was a good snuggle dog! 
And tolerated so much from the boys!
Avery and Leo were with me at the vet today when he was sent up to heaven.  It was an amazing life experience for them!
I will miss you "Little Dude"!
