When a beloved pet dies, it goes to the Rainbow Bridge.I just knew I was gonna love this. One version of this maudlin exercise is here. I especially liked the part
A pet will suddenly stop and look into the distance...bright eyes intent, eager body quivering. Suddenly recognising you...That would not be Pippin, thanks. Unless she thought I had food.
There's a Rainbow Bridge website, too, with a Pet Loss Grief Support Center.
