Sophie


















Unfortunately, my 13 yr old baby got ill Wednesday morning and I had to put her down Friday morning.  Man, I miss her. 
Maybe Punkindog will show her around doggie heaven.

I'm sure they're up there chasing Evil Cats together right now.
My heartfelt sympathies.....

Ah, this rips me up. What a beautiful girl Sophie was. She's painfree now but still walking beside you. Hugs, that's got to be tough.

From Friend to Friend You're giving me a special gift, so sorrowfully endowed.
And through these last few cherished days, your courage makes me proud.
But really, love is knowing when your best friend is in pain.
And understanding earthly acts will only be in vain.
So looking deep into your eyes, beyond, into your soul, I see in you the magic, that will once more make me whole.
The strength that you possess is why I look to you today, to do this thing that must be done.
For it's the only way.
That strength is why I've followed you and chose you as my friend.
And why I've loved you all these years, my partner til the end.
Please, understand just what this gift you're giving, means to me.
It gives me back the strength I've lost and all my dignity.
You take a stand on my behalf, for that is what friends do.
And know that what you do is right, for I believe it too.
So one last time, I breathe your scent, and through your hand i feel, The courage that's within you, to now grant me this appeal.
Cut the leash that holds me here, dear friend, and let me run.
Once more a strong and steady dog, my pain and struggle done.
And don't despair my passing, for I won't be far away.
Forever here, within your heart, and memory I will stay.
I'll be there watching over you, your ever faithful friend.
And in your memories I'll run... ...a young dog once again.

Thank you for your kind remarks and beautiful poem. She was my constant companion for all those years. The house is so empty now. Just hope the rainbow bridge is true. balloon2
