Rainbow Bridge

A Dogs Prayer

I was standing on a hillside in a field of blowing wheat, and the spirit of a Doberman was lying at my feet. He looked at me with kind eyes, an ancient wisdom shining through, and in the essence of his being, I saw love there too. His mind did lock upon my heart as I stood there on that day, and he told me of this story about a place far away. I stood upon that hillside in a field of blowing wheat, and in a twinkling of a second his spirit left my feet.
His tale did put my heart at ease; my fears did fade away about what lay ahead of me on another distant day. “I live among God’s creatures now, in the heavens of your mind. So do not grieve for me my friend, as I am with my own kind. My collar is a rainbow’s hue. My leash a shooting star. My boundaries are the Milky Way where I sparkle from afar. There are no pens or kennels here, for I am not confined, but free to roam in God’s heavens among the Doberman Kind. I nap the day on a snowy cloud, gentle breezes rocking me, and dream the dreams of earthlings and how it used to be. The trees are full of liver treats and tennis balls abound. Milkbones line the walkways just waiting to be found. There even is a ring set up, the grass is lush and green, where even Rescue Dobermans become Best of Breed. For we are all winners in this place, we have no faults you see, and God passes out those ribbons to each one, even me. I drink from waters laced with gold, my world a beauty to behold, and wise old dogs do form my pride to amble at my very side. At night I sleep in an angel’s arms, her wings protecting me. And moonbeams dance about us, as stardust falls on thee. So when your life on earth is spent, and you stand at Heaven’s gate have no fear of loneliness, for here, you know I wait.” –Unknown Author
