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 to them, who had to be left behind.
This week, it was just too much. So she just went sleepy bye byes, one last time.
She was wearing the bag lady sweater that I made (and remade, and remade again) for her when she went over the bridge. It was precious, and kept her really warm, and she loved it. Now she will wear it forever.
