Title: New Version Of Rainbow Bridge
Post by: dober_gurl on November 03, 2006, 05:24:24 pm
The Rainbow Bridge is a place of both peace and anticipation as
departed pets await their beloved owners. There are plenty of things to keep
them contented while they wait: trees you can't get stuck in, endless
meadows, splashing streams, thickets perfect to hide in for pounce &
attack games.

But one day the residents noticed some rather unusual newcomers arrive.
The koalas and the kangaroos slipped in rather quietly, but then came
the bearded dragons, the skinks and the goannas.

The influx of snakes startled an entire family of cats up a tree.
Pythons, cobras, tiger snakes, brown snakes and even fierce snakes.
There were so many at one point, it seemed the ground itself was alive
with writhing.

A burly wombat shouldered his way through the crowd and plopped down in
a shady spot, barely missing a Jack Russell terrier who yapped
indignantly as he abandoned his position. And then the crocodiles
showed up.

Finally, a Great Dane managed to get up enough nerve to approach one of
the reptilian giants.

"Um....excuse me," he said hesitantly. "But why are you all here?" The
croc dropped her jaw and laughed. "Same as you, mate," she said.
"Waitin' for someone who loved us."

The dogs, cats, gerbils and other "typical pets" looked at each other
in confusion, then at the plethora of weird, ugly and downright deadly
creatures assembled. Who on Earth could possibly love some of those
faces?

"I see him!" shouted a green mamba from his vantage point in one of the
trees. A cacophony of squeaks, hisses, bellows and roars erupted as the
mob surged forward toward a lone human walking across the field toward
the bridge.

The other animals managed to catch a glimpse of him before he was
overwhelmed by the crowd. "CRIKEY!" he shouted joyously right before he
was bowled over by the wombat.

"Well I'll be," said a Persian as she tidied up her fur. "It's that
Aussie my human liked to watch on TV. Had to be the craziest human on
the whole planet."

"Oh, please," remarked an echidna as he hurried by. "Is it really that
crazy to passionately love something God made?"

"No, it's not," they heard a voice say from their crowd. "You see, I,
too, was with him, at his side, as he caught the crocs, the snakes, and
the spiders and spoke on the importance they have in life. For you see,
I am his mate, his dog Sui. To you ordinary animals he may seem crazy,
but to me he is simply known as a Best Friend."

And with that comment, as the animals looked on with surprise, she ran
barking, clearing a path to him, and jumped in his arms, licking his
face as he cried, "Sui, my mate, my friend. How I've missed you so."
And with that, they all crossed the Rainbow Bridge together.

This actually made me cry, I thought it was really sweet.
