Guinness here on damage control--yesterday some of you thought I was a goner! Sheesh! That was not even on our mind when I wrote my story. The story flowed out of me and those have always been the post I love best--when everything comes together so nice. We started our post with a question--why is life so short... and I sought to answer that with my adventure. I really loved my idea of how can life be so short and winter..so LONG!!! We thought the post ended perfectly and came round full circle to the title. We ended it and started it the same. It never even crossed our mind that people would interpret this differently. Goodness that would be cruel and was NEVER the intent. We did not coin the term rainbow bridge nor does my human even like this concept! The bridge to us represented a time warp in season, emotion and answering the deeper questions of life. Something I am doing right now...zzzzz. Sorry to any of our readers that we offended-- especially Jo who has been a dedicated reader since the start! Don't worry--I may be a senior boy but look how healthy and happy I am--not going anywhere soon! love Guinny!

Guinness here taking a walk along the river with Maggi. SIGH. I have a question...how can life be so short...
but winter is so.. LONG? It doesn't make sense. We get to the old train bridge. Maggi won't come.
I guess I will just go by myself then...
What the...??? I cross the bridge. Everything is green and beautiful. Look at me! I am a young pup!
There are endless fields and everything is sweet and lush. There are golden-green pastures for miles...LOOK! IT'S SAIGE!
WOW! HI SAIGE! I can't believe this! I have never felt so happy in my whole life. Saige and I run in those carefree fields. We run and we run! We never get tired.
We run up through the meadows and down to the farm--and look close! who do you see?
It's crazy ol' GROUCHO!
Is he ever happy to see us!
Everything is just as it was.
I am never leaving this place. I will not cross the bridge again!
The bridge looms in the distance. But I stay here and play with Saige. We keep getting younger and younger...but the colors are changing now--and it seems to be Autumn...what is going on? Are things moving backwards?
Saige turns away...it really is Autumn now! And if it is Autumn...that means it will be winter. Winter? Winter? Wait a minute! Where is Maggi? Oh no! I left Maggi back in Winter! I HAVE TO GO BACK! I CAN'T JUST LEAVE EVERYONE...
I cross the bridge. Maggi is waiting for me. I chase her in the snow. Things seem different now. I am more alive than ever. And if Winter is long--then let it be long. Life is to short to worry about that. Love Guinness
