The Rainbow Bridge
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.

Click here to read my tribute to Lily.
Lily was truely the best dog I could’ve ever asked for. She started me in the sport and we learned everything together. If not for my Dillers I wouldn’t have the kennel or anything else in the dog industry. Your life was long, but too short as well. Thanks for all of the memories and experiences. Rest easy Girl….Ill be there in a little while. Once I’m there we can go for a ride in the truck with you riding shotgun. Then we’ll find a huge field and hunt ‘em up. Till then take a nap under a big tree, do a few victory rolls and wait for me.
You will never be replaced Lily….and always remembered.
