Jake's Song

I borrowed this from a friend's facebook page.  I think it's beautiful...Don't know who the author is.

Jake’s Song

I was not unaware of the ties that bound

Me to this body and to her soul 

The body no longer useful 

To one so brave, so big, so bold

One loved by her

With a strength untold

Now no pain, not scared

She set me free

Thru tears…

I'm Here (I Stood By Your Bed Last Night)

I'm Here

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.

I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,

"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,

You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.

I was…

It came to me (a beautiful thought I ran across)

It came to me that every time I lose a dog,

they take a piece of my heart with them.…

A Prayer for Animals

A Prayer for Animals

Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals,

especially for animals who are suffering;

for animals that are overworked, underfed and cruelly treated;

for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars;

for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry;

for all that must be put…

The Rebirth a most beautiful poem

The Rebirth

I was standing in the middle of a field with all the dogs from my life 

as the dewdrops danced gently on the flowers…

As the sun began to rise, to envelop us all, 

kissing us with its light, peace slid around us to endower,

The feeling of being one, with nature and beast,

those running pieces of my heart on four paws began to surround me,

Their happy yips of joy, their yodels and cries,

Just A Dog

From time to time, people tell me, “lighten up, it’s just a dog”, or, “that’s a lot of money for just a dog”. They don’t understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for “just a dog”. Some of my proudest moments have come about with “just a dog”. Many hours have passed and my only company was “just a dog”, but I did not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by “just a dog” and in those…

A Dog For Jesus

A Dog For Jesus

I wish someone had given Jesus a dog

As loyal and loving as mine

To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes

And adore Him for being divine.

As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog

Would have followed Him all through the…

Dog quote of the day!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

VISIONS OF DOG POOP DANCE IN MY HEAD (Highlights of a doggie Mom's day)

I can write this here, because those of you reading this will understand. A brief recent look into our household for those of you who do not live here. We have 3 dogs, Maeson, Grisa and Nikita (aka Niki). All 3 dogs LIVE in the house. They are FAMILY, our forever-toddler children. They romp and play outside when we are out with them. If we are in the house, chances are they are right here beside us. They use the bathroom outside in the morning, after we arrive home from work, after they have… Continue

Dogs Know!

My first experience with knowing that dogs know mortality was in 1996. When my Dad died I had Bandit. Bandit witnessed the collapse of my Dad. Mom remembers Bandit howling in the front yard when my Dad collapsed on the front porch of their vacation home..I don't remember that. However, I do know when I returned from the hospital, where I had ridden in the ambulance with Dad, I went into my bedroom there at the house where Bandit was. I got on the floor with him and told him "Grandpa's… Continue

13 months, 17 days and about 5 hours since we lost Mouta and my husband and I now smile and laugh when remembering her, rather than tearing up at the mere mention of her name(although there are still tears at times). She was such a GOOD dog, silly and fun and loved life and taught us so much.

Of course we have our favorite stories. One has to do with the a pizza round. We had one of those rising crust pizzas for dinner one night. Somehow, I'm not quite sure how, the round cardboard… Continue

Away from home...Grisa makes me laugh!

I have to share this story. My Mom recently had knee replacement surgery. I was there for about 10 days, taking Nikita & AK with me. I brought her dog back home with me when she went to rehab. I was only home for about a week and a half before I went back, this time taking only her dog & AK (our cat). I was at her house taking care of her for nearly 2 weeks when she came home from rehab (she lives 2 hours away from us). My husband stayed home with our 3 dogs. When I returned home after… Continue
