I think he must know this too, because he came to visit me last night. God must have let him sneak down the rainbow bridge while I slept. There he was in my dream, young and healthy again. He was so full of energy and love. I smiled as he ran around me and barked in pure happiness. It was so good to see him again. It filled my heart with love. It made my soul dance with joy. It helped my mind to see clearly once again that there is no death and that life and love go on forever. After I woke up I stayed awake for a long time remembering every moment of this dream. I knew that it was more than just the longings of my heart. I knew that it was my old friendís way of telling me that we will be seeing each other again.
My house is still a bit quieter now, but my heart no longer is. I know that one day I will be hearing a lot of Heavenly barking. What a glorious sound it will be too. It will be full of love and happiness, and I will rejoice in every moment of it.
Take the time to rejoice in and share your own love today. Hug your two-legged friends and bend down to pet your four-legged ones. Thank God too for every moment you get with them. But also remember that your love wonít end here. Love like life and friendship is eternal.
