I am posting this on behalf of a friend who wishes to share her feelings with you all. I have had the great pleasure of meeting the Lady concerned, this is a very touching tribute, she will be sadly missed.



My lady friend died today...

she was so proud and so gentle.


She came into our lifes 6yrs ago, thrown out of her last home and left to fend for herself on the streets. Alas she was put in to what she thought was her new home, but it was a place with no future except death. She was brought to me, as I'm a kind person who could give her a loving home. Within minutes she knew she was safe and happily looked around her new home, trying all the beds, a lady of some considerable taste, she knew which bed she wanted, of course it was mine. Her bathroom manners were fantastic too. We all fell in love with her, even our cat, which was totally unexpected. In a class of her own, a haughty, spoilt, pampered pussy, I feared she would not take kindly to our new lady friend, but to my surprise they kissed and all was well. Our new lady friend was loved as soon as she stepped into my home, a love she enjoyed for 6 years until today.

This is my dedication to Bridie


You were so gentle

you were so loving

you never cried

you hated loud noises

they frightned you

we gave you love to reassure you

your heart was kind

so was your mind

you snuggled up to me when I was sad

and gave me reasurring licks for which I was glad

My Bridie

My Dog

Even to the end you never cried

you had your last meal from my hand.

I knew then...

The vet was kind he loved you too,

we kissed goodbye with you in my arms,

you looked at me with your soft brown eyes 

and kissed me goodbye.

I said 'I love you' as you died,

my tears were streaming

as your body became heavy.

It was a pleasure to have had you for such a short time, 

you brought so much love, into my house given with such kindness and loyality.

I love you my Bridie.

My Dog.

And you just made me cry, Paul. It brought me back to losing one of my own dogs. Some people don't realize how attached we become to pets because our pets give us so much. Thank you. ~~Nordette

Dear Paul,

This really choked me up and stinging tears, talk about dog lovers, would 10 be enough ;) we won't talk about cats, I will leave that to the imagination. So I do know how heartbreaking it is. I know the post is late, better late than never ;)

warm hugs

I am sorry this is how I felt about my dog Trooper and I trust he and Birdie are having a good romp together.
