Default The concept of the 'rainbow bridge'

I don't know if it's cause I come from a Hindu family or what (I'm not a follower of any religion) but I like to believe that a soul is reborn. Even for animals. Maybe I won't get to ever see the soul again with my soul, but someone else will get to experience it.

I have always hoped to see my beloved pets again. I'm sure they've gone to heaven. I hope i make it. There is an actual poem that the video paraphrased, The Rainbow Bridge and a website where you can go and talk to actual people about your pain at losing your pets.

I believe that in heaven they ( animals) will definitely be there and they will be young,healthy and strong. I think the story of the man who had three GSDs lead him back to life might be what happens to them, furry angels.. The verse Lilie quoted is one of my favorites though. Cannot wait to pet the lion.

I believe that if all animals go to the Rainbow bridge. That is proof enough to me on how beautiful Heaven will be.

I am quite new here, but found this interesting. I am one of those fuddy-duddy evangelical, conservative, Bible believing Christians, so I believe in a Heaven and in a ****, and believe that "....narrow is the way". I dont know if animals have a soul or not, but when you study what Heaven means for a Christian, I dont believe it is possible for a animal lover to be happy without seeing their beloved animals again in eternity. I dont know for sure either way, but after losing multiple dogs over my lifetime that I still remember, I just dont see God allowing humans and dogs to make such a strong connection, and then never see each other again after death.
Just my 2 cents.

I believe our sweet babies will come for us and be with us in heaven. I think Jon Katz wrote a book of short animal stories that told of a quite different dog heaven than what we dream of on a lighter note!

I definitely believe I will see my animals again and that they will be able to communicate with me. I never gave much thought about "how they would be" but I guess I think they will be as they are in the prime of their life.

I truly hope that the rainbow bridge is there and that one day I will see my little fury angels again. I hope that they will be waiting for me. I am not sure what to believe. My family was never a very religious one. We believed their is a God but it was never really spoken of. So I am hoping to find something that can help me to believe in a place where I will one day see them again where we will play as we used to and never have to part again

I am Christian also and I sure hope we see our pets again! I guess if we don't though, we will be in such awe of being in the presence of The Lord, it won't really matter. But, I hope we are reunited with them.
