TREASURED MEMORIES

Dedicated to our Beautiful Girls

each one a Precious Memory

.......................................

 

OLD DOGS DO NOT DIE

We have a secret, you and I, that no one else shall know,

For who but I can see you lie each night in the fire glow?

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, with you ahead of me,

Your beauty 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 .......

...............................................................................

We pay tribute to our founder members - sorely missed.

Zoe and Kati are the original members of our gang and, although sadly no longer with us, provided us with years of love, affection and pleasure, and, of course, the basis of our present pack. Polly is Zoe's daughter.

 

Many will enter and leave your life

But only true friends leave paw prints on your heart

  ************

Years have passed since we fixed the place
For The Friend Who Went Away,
And we mourned her loss, but we took with love,
The Friend Who Came to Stay.

And now by the side of the first loved friend
Another shepherd dog lies.
And I feel sometimes that my heart will break
With the hurt of so many goodbyes.

I have heard so many people say
"I don't want to be hurt again."
So they close their hearts and they miss the joy
They could find with another friend.

He won't take the place of the friend you lost;
For each love stands alone.
But he'll make a place...a wonderful place,
A place that is all his own.

And the hurt that you thought would never heal
Will be part of yesterday.
And the friend that you took will be just as dear;
Only dear in a different way.

Our Special Girl, Lucy (10.10.91. - 13.06.00).

One more star in the sky

God took you back, We had to part,

He eased your pain, and broke our hearts.

Our Beautiful Beatrice   (03.02.95. - 30.03.06).

They say memories are golden, and maybe that is true

But I never wanted memories, I only wanted you

Our Darling Anna  (10.10.91. - 20.06.04).

Our Pride and Joy

A golden heart stopped beating

Four paws were laid to rest

God took you back to prove to us

He only takes the best

Our Dear, Sweet, Josie (02.04.95. - 25.09.06).

If tears could build a stairway, And heartache make a lane

I’d climb the path to heaven, and bring you home again

Our Beautiful Becky (11.09.93. - 29.12.05).

Memories grow more precious still when loved ones have to part

And remain for ever blooming in the gardens of the heart

Our Precious Evie (03.02.95. - 19.10.05).

Our special darling Evie, Though you broke our hearts today

Our love for you remains as strong as it was yesterday

Ami (6.11.1997 -

There's a hole in my heart where our Ami passed through

When she went away part of me went too

 

Some of Ami's babies

'The puppies are my babies...the people are.......?.....well people!.............I think they call them 'grandchildren'?

 

CJ, Timber and Isobel

'Thank goodness, someone else to play with....gives me a break'

 

Ah!..A game of 'tug o' war'.........I told the referee not to get too close!!

 

OK junior!!...................not too close!!

So much joy  -  So much sorrow

It was a privilege to share your lives

................................................................................

 

 These words were included in the Queen Mother’s written funeral service which speaks to us all of any soul, human or canine, that we have lost.

 

You can shed tears that she is gone

or you can smile because she has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back

or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her

or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday

or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember her and only that she’s gone

or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back

Or you can do what she’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

 

.............................................................................................

 

There are no words that fill the void left by our babes but we can always remember the

 great lives they had and their love and devotion to us.
