The Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here,
that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends
so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine
and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor;
those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again,
just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing:
they each miss someone very special,
someone who was left behind.
They all run and play together,
but the day comes when one suddenly stops
and looks into the distance.
His bright eyes are intent;
his eager body begins to quiver.
Suddenly,he breaks from the group,
flying over the green grass, faster and faster.
You have been spotted,
and when you and your special friend finally meet,
you cling together in joyous reunion,
never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face;
your hands again caress the beloved head,
and you look once more into those trusting eyes,
so long gone from your side,
but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.....

I would like to thank Sherry Zbar for all the help
that she has given me in creating this tribute to Briards
and to the dogs who have lived with Briards.
When she lost her beloved Emily,
I could feel her pain as did many others who own and love Briards.
Please take time to visit her website at


I would like thank Gerda Friedl for creating
the Briard Cursor and allowing it to be used on this site.
It is a beautiful gift and a wonderful tribute to our Briards.
Please visit her site when you get a chance.
