Pet Expo: A Spirit Dog Sends a Real Rainbow Bridge

Here's yet another amazing story of how a pet's spirit, a dog in this case, provided a sign to her mom after she passed.

     A woman named Jan stopped by the booth and told Ruthie and I that she had lost her beloved Bassett Hound named Sissy. However, she said that she recognized a sign from her  after her passing. She asked his spirit to tell her if he had crossed the "Rainbow Bridge."    The Rainbow Bridge is a popular poem about how animals cross into the light in the afterlife.

Jan was kind enough to share her story for everyone. Here's what Jan writes: 

Feb 17th 2000 will be a day I will never forget.  On that Thursday I had to say goodbye to my best friend & confidant of 8 years & 3 months. Her name was Sissy & she was by far the most loving, sweet, loyal, affectionate, passive, perfect Basset Hound & she was my soul-mate dog. Before taking her to the vets for the last time, I brought her to a Native American elder to bless her. He told me she was not dying but was just going to a different place & for me to watch for signs from her.
Almost immediately I started reading everything I could get my hands on about pet loss & quickly learned about the Rainbow Bridge.  I also found a wonderful website where I created a virtual cemetery space for Sissy, since I had her ashes sent to Arizona where I own a plot in a pet cemetery.
Well 3 weeks later to the date, March 9th, I received 2 pieces of info in regard to Sissy. One was from the cemetery in Arizona saying they received her ashes & they would be buried the next day. The other was from the website where I was creating the virtual cemetery & they messaged me telling me that they had approved my submission & it would now be on line to view.
A double rainbow
On my way home from work, on that very same date, I donated her leftover dog food to a stray dog rescue organization. As I was driving home it was raining, but the temperature was warm & nice. Still being dazed & confused throughout my intense grief, I thought to myself that Sissy gave me this weather. Then I spoke out loud “Maybe you can give me a rainbow, too.”
Well, not more than a ½ mile later I saw people on both sides of the road, looking up at the sky. So naturally I also looked to the sky and there it was, the most biggest, brightest rainbow I’ve ever seen in Massachusetts. It was so complete from end to end, beautiful & even with another smaller one behind it. Well I instantly started sobbing hard because all I could think of was my Sissy telling me something like, “I see it Mom. I see the rainbow & I’m almost home.”  It was at that point, despite a ton of tears, I repeatedly thanked her for such an obvious, miraculous sign.
So, equally, March 9th 2000 will be a day I will also never forget.
