Sounds like a children’s picture book doesn’t it? I have had the unique experience of bringing loved pets through for a few people that I have read for. One such example is Marshmallow.

I am nearly always able to provide people who come to me for Readings with names of people significant in their lives. During a Reading last year, I had a list of names coming through for my guest as usual.

I found it really hard to give her the very last name on my list with a straight face. The name made me laugh and I thought it was my imagination.

My guest asked me what I was laughing at, so I told her.

“I’ve given you all the names on my list except one.”

“Please tell me!” she pleaded.

“I’m getting the name Marshmallow,” I said giggling like a little girl.

“Marshmallow!” she exclaimed, “You weren’t going to give me Marshmallow? Marshmallow was my pet rabbit when I was only a girl. I nursed that rabbit in my bed for 9 weeks until he died! Thank you for bringing Marshmallow back to me.”

So, now it seems I’m channelling rabbits!

I hope you enjoy the beautiful story below about what happens to our pets when they die.


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 the Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all 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 have been ill and old are restored to health and vigour; 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.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Their bright eyes are intent; their eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly, they begin to run from the group, flying over the green grass, their legs carrying them 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 the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together…
