The Last Will and Testament of
An Extremely Distinguished Dog
One last word of farewell, Dear Master.
When ever you visit my grave say to yourself
with regret but also with happiness in your heart
of my happy life with you:
"Here lies one who loved me and whom I loved"
No matter how deep my sleep I shall hear you
and not all the power of death can keep my
spirit from wagging a grateful tail.
" Kris will always be in my
heart as all my wonderful
but in a very special place.
Kris was my first smooth chow.
I miss him terribly."
Only Wanted You
say memories are golden well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you, a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
HEAVEN'S DOGGY DOOR
My best friend closed his eyes last night,
As his head was in my hand.
The Doctors said he was in pain,
And it was hard for him to stand.
The thoughts that scurried through my head,
As I cradled him in my arms.
Were of his younger, puppy years,
And OH...his many charms.
Today, there was no gentle nudge,
With an intense "I love you gaze",
Only a heart that’s filled with tears
Remembering our joy filled days.
But an Angel just appeared to me,
And he said,
"You should cry no more,
GOD also loves our canine friends,
He's installed a 'doggy-door"!
