Cousin Ronan

Aprox 1995 to 22 July 2009

Ronan belonged to our Skin Bro. She moved in with him because her family couldn't keep her anymore. Skin Bro had just left home and was for the first time in his life on his own in his own flat. Ronan has been with him ever since in all the ups and downs of life. she didn't mind car travel and with her fur sis who moved in with them a few years later (Burtys Mums) used to came to visit sometimes and stayed with us when Skin Bro went on holidays. But she was finding it hard to breath and last week X-rays showed what was probably lung cancer, today she left for Rainbow bridge.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to 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 vigour. 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. There bright eyes are intent. The eager body quivers. Suddenly they begin to run from the group, flying over the green grass, there legs carrying them 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 Rainbow Bridge together....
