Perhaps no other design captures our hearts as much as our “Rainbow Bridge” handcrafted chenille robes. Each robe is meant to honor the incredible, timeless bond between us humans and our beloved pets.
We thought we might share the original description as well as a bit of the story behind one of our most special creations below.
❧the story behind the rainbow bridge robe☙
That was a big jump I took to catch my ball…I’ve almost got it!!!
But wait a minute, my old ball looks so shiny new now…and this is a different place…not my favorite back yard, where I knew every bush and tree…and where’s that pesky squirrel I used to chase every day?
I see my master in the distance, she’s just over a beautiful bridge, it’s like a rainbow…the colors are brilliant, and its gentle arch…it was so easy to jump over!
But she’s on the other side! And she’s crying, sobbing so hard she is shaking…and she’s holding my tattered old leash in her hands. How I loved that leash! When I saw it, I knew it meant long walks or even better, rides!
I want to go over and slobber her with kisses, but I just can’t seem to find a way back over the Bridge. I want to let her know that I’m all right, that stiffness in my paws is gone, and I don’t have any pain in my furry body any more. It all passed away when I came over the Rainbow Bridge.
It’s so beautiful here, there’s other animals and their owners, and there is such a profound peace…no pain, no sadness, only the pure joy and love shared between pets and their owners.
Don’t cry! Oh, how I want to tell her that this is an enchanted place, a kingdom of eternal peace and love…and the love we shared together comes with us…that is why it is so blissful here.
I’ll wait for you! We will be reunited, you and I…and when it is your time, I’ll be bounding over the Rainbow Bridge, to greet you once again…as I always did….
