   Two very long months ago, my best friend died.
Bailey wasn't an 'only child'; there are two beautiful four-legged ladies in my house right now. I love them both so much.
But oh, I miss my big guy.
He was a little older when I found him (or should I say, when he found me?) . A gray beard, as they say. And there were some wonderful years - not as many as I would have hoped, or wanted, but then ... Would there ever be?
What brings this up: A dear friend of mine sent me an email today, to let me know her cat had passed on.
It's always such a sad thing.
For some reason, it brought a memory back to my mind.
I'm not sure how old I was, but I know I couldn't have been 4 yet. The family dog had just died. I remember asking, "Do animals go to heaven too?"
I was reassured that, yes, of course. What would Heaven be without them?
"That's good," I replied, "cause if they're not, I don't wanna go."
I'm all grown up now, and still feel the same way.
I know I'm not alone.
So whether you call it The Rainbow Bridge, Heaven, Paradise, what have you ... You can't convince me such true, kind friends - who bring out so much love in us; maybe often our best - aren't waiting for us.
If you've lost a furry (or feathered, or scaly) loved one, I hope you've found comfort in memories.
And in the thought of The Rainbow Bridge (etc.).
