Our Rainbow Bridge


“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember
the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”

An Indian legend says: ” When a human dies, there is a bridge they must cross to enter into Heaven. At the head of the bridge waits every animal that human encountered during their lifetime. The animals, based on what they know of this person, decide which humans may cross the bridge…and which are turned away.”


In Your Heart

“We would say that there are various places in which a dog may be buried. Beneath a tree, for beneath such trees they slept in the drowsy summer, gnawed at a favorite bone or lifted their head to challenge some strange intruder. These are good places in life or in death. Yet it is a small matter. There is one best place to bury a dog, for if you bury him in this spot, he will come to you when you call — down well remembered paths to your side once again. People may scoff at you, who see no blades of grass bent by his paws, who hear no bark…people who never really lived with a dog. Smile at them, for you shall know something that is hidden from them and which is well worth knowing. The one best place to bury your dog is in your heart.”

When something magical happens between man and animal, Native Americans say,
“We have walked together in the shadow of a rainbow.”
