 More Than An Angel
From Animal Rights On-Line - Susan Roghair [email protected] - 24 Sep 2000

The young puppies and kittens and the older dogs and cats lay on

shaded sweet grass watching the reunions.

Sometimes a man, sometimes a woman,

sometimes a whole family would approach

the Rainbow Bridge, be greeted by their

loving pets and cross the bridge together.

The young puppy playfully nipped at the older one.

"Look! Something wonderful is happening!"

The older dog stood up and barked,

"Quickly, all get over to the path."

"That's not my owner," whined the pup,

but he did as he was told. Thousands of pets

surged forward as a figure in white

walked on the path toward the bridge.

After the glowing figure passed each animal,

that animal bowed its head in love and respect.

The figure finally approached the bridge,

and was met by a menagerie of joyous animals.

Together, they walked over the bridge and disappeared.

The young pup was still in awe.

"Was that an angel?" he whispered.

"No, son," the older dog replied.

"That was more than an angel.

That was a person who worked rescue."
