So sweet kind, my beloved canine, you gave with all your might. Your love, your smile, you're heart combined. With all you shared your flight.
A long and varied life you've had. Through many years you've lived. Sometimes I wonder why you stayed with us through all our tears.
You bathed the cats. How wild was that! It was just because you cared. When no mom was around, you snuggled with them. Showing them love in her stead.
Always watchfull of family, you never missed a beat. And even when feeling sickly you'd jump up to your feet.
To check up on your children, yes those children of mine. Whenever they were sad or wild, you always saw them shine.
And when my brothers visited, your favorite you did choose. It helps when he'd reciprocate, there was no way to refuse.
My dearest friend you've been with us for so many years. And when you left us late last night you brought on many tears
You were our friend in more than one, way this is for sure. You will be missed my precious one but I am glad you'll not endure.
Further pain or suffering, further difficult nights. I am glad to know however dear, that you had a wondrous flight
