As we mentioned in our last blog entry, the day before Christmas Eve, I had to put my best furry friend and constant companion Enzo to sleep do to illness and around Thanksgiving one of my landladies ranch dogs, Bud had to be put to sleep. Two very sad events and I'd say the worst parts of 2014.
Tribute to my dog
Tonight I called your name
Waiting for you to show
I realized it wasn't the same
As today I had to let you go.
You were sick and in pain
It wasn't a matter of you being tougher
You got that final shot in the vein
Because I just couldn't let you suffer.
With the last breath you drew
Your memory will not be shoved to the rear
And I only hope you knew
How much I loved you and wished you were still here.
You were saved from the shelter an hour before your time was due
That was in the spring over 5 years ago
Yet it seems that I was the rescue
At least I think so.
It is true, there will never be
Another dog exactly like you
Fond memories I will keep with me
And I meant it when I said I love you.
Now there is a hole
In my life and in my heart
Waiting to fill this role
Is another shelter dog hoping for this part.
Happy Holidays to all of you, no matter which holiday you celebrate!! The holiday season is in full swing, people are filling the malls and stores to buy gifts to exchange for whatever holiday they celebrate. During this time of giving, we felt it important to share our views on the holidays and no this isn't going to be a religious post.
