Just this side of heaven is a place called the 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 of 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 had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. 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. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him 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 the Rainbow Bridge together....
Do you have a Pyr waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge? Why not take a few minutes to tell us all about your Pyr?
Here is an opportunity to share your memories of your beloved pet and honour his or her time with you forever.
We'd love for you to tell us all about your pet. Please make your story 400 to 600 words long as we would love to know all of the details of your lives together. Please provide pictures as well. You can send us up to four pictures of your Pyr.
Thanks for sharing.

Is it normal for a GP puppy who has bladder infection and given antibiotics by the vet to not want to leave his crate? Is it normal for him to be so lethargic?
