Goodbye dear friend

Saturday, July 11, 2009

Yesterday, July 10th, I had to put one of my shetland sheepdogs and a dear, dear friend to sleep. I miss her so much and so does my other shetland sheepdog ( her daughter )> She was a great dog and I'm sure I'll never own another like her. My sister Vicky (wantstocruise) wrote this for me.

Curtain Call

We didn’t know you as a pup
We got you fully grown
But it only took us minutes
To love you as our own

They said your name was Curtain Call
A proper name for show
But CC seemed to suit much more
The dog we came to know

What joy you brought into our lives
As you greeted us each day
With wagging tail and shining eyes
That somehow seemed to say

“Thank you for adopting me
I somehow never knew
What it was like to be so loved
Til I came to live with you

I’d been used to win a prize
And bred just for my get
But I didn’t know how great it was
Just to be a pet”

And so for three short years we shared
Our lives, our love with you
At home or camp right by my side
A friend so tried and true

You loved being petted
With hands or even feet
And rustling bag a signal
To come begging for a treat

But then your steps grew slower
You walked as if in pain
And I knew you’d never run or play
You’d not be young again

I couldn’t watch you suffer
Your pain just made me weep
So CC since I loved you
I let you go to sleep

You closed your eyes, took final breath
But friend, we’ll never part
Though you made your final curtain call
You’ll live always in my heart

    I am so sorry for your family loss. I've been there with one of ours. Your sister did a fantastic job on the poem. It seems to capture CC's life in a beautiful expression from the heart. Our sympathy to you. emoticon

    What a beautiful tribute. I am so sorry for your deep loss. Our fur babies are family, and losing them hurts immeasurably. They give such unconditional love. Your baby is in heaven with all the milk bones she could ever want. emoticon
