Letter from Rainbow Bridge Vote for this post

Hi, Mum
Now that I’ve been across The Rainbow Bridge for a couple days, they said I should write a letter home. Sorry, mum, but I’m so busy ‘across the bridge’ that I haven’t thought of home much. They said it’s okay and that you would understand. I hope you do. (I think you will.)
Remember that night when I wasn’t feeling very well and we were all crying? I don’t remember much, but I do remember seeing and hearing all of you and feeling your touches and hugs…I remember hearing “we love you” and that one last command of “Go through”. I didn’t know what you meant, so I turned around and walked through the fog that was in front of me. I saw the biggest bridge I’ve ever seen! And so many friends on the other side of it! They were all playing with toys and balls! You were right to tell me to go there!
My feet kept moving forward, but my heart kept pulling me back. Your touches became lighter and lighter and I wanted to come back and nudge your hands for more love, but I was overcome by this feeling of curiosity for the happy place over the bridge! My feet started moving on their own, like a gentle breeze was moving them forward for me! I can’t explain it, but I had no doubt that it was the right thing to do!
So, I walked across that big, huge bridge by myself! I looked for you, because you’re always by my side, walking with me, but this was different. I didn’t have a collar around my neck or a leash connecting me to you ~ I was ‘free’! Even though you weren’t there with me, I never felt alone! I actually felt like I had a huge cape of love wrapped around my body and the more I walked, the easier it was to breathe! So, I kept walking! And I would feel more warmth in the big hug, so I kept on walking! I eventually made it over the big bridge – I did it by myself, mum!
When I got here, all of my new friends greeted me and helped me walk off the bridge ~ it was so cool! They gave me a pair of wings and said that I was now a Guardian Angel!
What I’ve learned over these past few weeks has been amazing and nothing like I’ve seen before! We’re all the same up here ~ we all have wings and we all have Forever People to watch over ~ that’s YOU, mum!You’re my Forever Person and I’m your Forever Dog! We had such a great life together and I do miss you a LOT, but please know that I am so happy in my new home across The Bridge!
I’ll send you another Earth Angel so you won’t be alone. Give them your whole heart, like you gave it to me. I’ll check in every so often to make sure they treasure your love ~ I always did! When you miss me, think of a rainbow and know I’m on the other side of it, waiting to walk with you again. I’ll always be in your heart. I love you, mum! Time for me to go play

Sandy, I am crying as I read this.  Layla was a very special girl, she will be missed by all of us on TC.


what a lovely way to express  her going to the Rainbow bridge.  I know that you miss her, you will meet again on day.   She will always be in our heart. \


I bet Layla will send you a new angel to love.


take care and god bless

Please.....I'm terribly sorry if I have mislead you Sandi into believing that Layla had passed away.  I posted this as a tribute to all the members who have lost their babies in the past and thought this was a different view for people to relate to.  Layla is very much alive and well.  Again, I'm sorry for giving you this impression.

Hugs   Sandy & Layla

That was a very touching letter. Tears came very easy and thoughts of my lost ones.

I have saved a copy of it and will keep it always.

Glad Layla is well and not at the bridge.

Love Allen and Riley

Dear Sandi,
I am glad that your Layla is doing well and is still in your arms to love.Sending hugs and wishing you both a happy holiday.

This time of year always gets to me. I unpacking my Christmas Boxes and find my pups santa hats, Antlers, Christmas coats and fuzzy bell collars. Oh it makes me reflect with tears missing them but also think of all the good holidays we had together.

Your post is comforting to remember that all three of my babies are free and romping happy with all their TC pals at Rainbow Bridge. It had me in tears but beautifully picture the sentiment. Thank you for thinking of all us that has lost our sweet little babies.

Hugs Sandra
My Angels Maddie Willie Emily at the RB
