Max- you are my forever friend.  I will always talk to you and share my thoughts with you.  You are my angel...

RIP Max

Burning like fire.
Bright eyes,
How can you close and fail?
How can the light that burned so brightly
Suddenly burn so pale?
Bright eyes.

Well, It's been 2 years today that you have been gone.  I think about everyday, and rub your box.  Stay with me, angel... until we meet at the bridge.

 OLD DOGS DO NOT DIE

Author Unknown

We have a secret, you and I,
That no one else shall know,
For who, but I can see you lie,
Each night, in fireglow?

And who but I can reach my hand
Before we go to bed,
And feel the living warmth of you
And touch your silken head?

And only I walk woodland paths,
And see, ahead of me,
Your small form racing with the wind,
So young again, and free.

And only I can see you swim
In every brook I pass.
And, when I call, no one but I
Can see the bending grass.
"Bright eyes,
Burning like fire.
Bright eyes,
How can you close and fail?
How can the light that burned so brightly
Suddenly burn so pale?
Bright eyes.

I know it's not been quite 3 years you have gone...  But I'm really missing you today.  I think about you always.  You are my heart!!!


Do dogs go to heaven?
My little bully passed away, no more to breathe a sound.
I held him for the last time, then entombed him in the ground.
Day and night I wept so much, in tears I thought I'd drown.
I searched my soul for comfort, but no peace therein was found.

In great despair, I hit my knees and then began to pray.
"Father will I ever see, my dog again someday?"
I raised my eyes and saw an angel standing near a gate.
I sensed an inner peace I'd never felt before that day.

The angel smiled and said to me, "Oh man of little faith!
God sees every bird that falls; He knows your bully's fate.
I have met your little dog, I saw him pass my way.
Your precious dog is still alive; he just walked through this gate.

Paradise is lovelier than you can comprehend.
No pain or grief, no tears or fears, and life will have no end.
God gave to man His only Son, to cover all his sins.
So why would God withhold from you, your pure and loving friend?Ē

The angel took me by the hand and said, "Now come with me.
A glimpse of paradise I'll give, to you so you can see."
Through the gate and o'er the Rainbow Bridge we did proceed.
Through green valleys filled with flowers, rolling hills and trees.

ďWow, so this is paradise!Ē The place was filled with joy.
I saw my bully playing there, with dogs and cats and toys.
He also had some doggie treats, and food that he enjoyed.
He'd made a lot of new friends there, including girls and boys.

Then I saw a child come near, and hug my little mate.
She said to him, "I love you so," and kissed him on the face.
The angel said, "The child just crossed the Rainbow Bridge today.
Now she needs a little friend, to love and help her play.

Godís love for her would be enough, in that make no mistake.
But in His love, He knew full well, the child would want a mate.
This is why God called your dog unto this splendid place.
Godís entrusted her with him, Ďtil you pass through the gate."

I pleaded, ďMay I hug them both?!Ē The angel answered, ďNo!
Youíd violate a sacred site, and now itís time to go.Ē
He led me back across the Bridge and through the gate to home.
He left me there with new-found hope and peace within my soul.

If someone ever asks what happens to a dog that dies,
Just give a gentle smile of joy and look them in the eye.
Take their hand and comfort them and tell them not to cry.
For dogs donít die, they simply cross a bridge to paradise.

Well Max... it will be 4 years you've been gone... and I still think about you every day.  It's been more and more lately though that I seem to think about you all the time.  Thanks for being there every time I need someone to talk to.  I miss you dear, sweet boy... I miss you.

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,
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'll stay.

I'll be there watching over you, your ever faithful friend,
and in your memories I'll run, ...a young dog once again.


"Bright eyes,
Burning like fire.
Bright eyes,
How can you close and fail?
How can the light that burned so brightly
Suddenly burn so pale?
Bright eyes.

5 years ago already, buddy!!!  Missing you still!

I Haven't Left At All

I saw you gently weeping as you looked through photographs
You paused for just a moment at one that made you laugh;
But as you turned more pages the tears began to flow
You whispered that you missed me but I want you to know;
I softly licked those stinging tears that down your cheeks did fall
I want to help you understand I havenít left at all.

On those days that you are overcome with sorrow, pain and grief
I rest my head upon your leg to offer some relief.
When you take our walking path Iíve seen you turn around
Because I know you surely heard my paws upon the ground.

At night while you are sleeping I snuggle at your side
You stroke my fur as you touch that place where I used to lie.
You said itís just your heart playing tricks upon your mind
But rest assured Iím really there, my spiritís left behind.

I know your heart is hurting; itís like an open sore
You think my life has ended and you wonít see me anymore.
But for those of us bound tight by love, death is not the curtain call;
Itís really the eternal beginning that waits for us all
So, dear Master as you live your life I patiently await
For us to be together when you pass through Heavenís gate.
"Bright eyes,
Burning like fire.
Bright eyes,
How can you close and fail?
How can the light that burned so brightly
Suddenly burn so pale?
Bright eyes.
