Photograph of Sunny

I saw you in the yard tonight you smelled the air
Time seems to be devastating your beautiful body
You used to be so fast my friend enjoying speed
Now as you saunter along limping I see your pain
My heart aches as age sets into your life, I’m sad
I remember the first time I showed you the pool steps
There in the pool you swam around in many circles
After that you never wanted out of the clear water
You were there for my son till he could grow
Now we have each other and I love you
I was there when you first saw the snow fall
You were afraid at first then you enjoyed its touch
I know why the Lord makes your time so short
You are a blessing and He awaits your homecoming
I will be here for you always till you return home
But till that time together we will slow just a bit
Together we will walk the block much slower
Eat a few more cookies we really shouldn’t have
And I will give you the last of the milk in the cup
Together you and I will welcome age and time

For Sunny my old Dalmatian

The Freckle Farm

What a wonderful poem! What a wonderful friend you have in Sunny!Sunny has in y o u !! Makes me happy and sad. Our little Rosie
slipped away not long ago. She was about l5. Not sure exactly, because she was a rescue dog. Blind in one eye as the result of
abuse, she, like Sunny, had a great personality, a sweet disposition, and a zest for life that could not be extinguished. Bless you for
being such a kind and loving person. Bless Sunny for being Sunny!!

Such a beautiful hymn to your best friend, yet it is so sad to see how fast our beloved pets go down when we near the end. I saw that with my 17 year old cat last year.
Enjoy every moment together you can...
Later, michael

Beautifully written my dear friend. Sunny has a special place in my heart as well. I miss him, but love looking at his picture still on my refrigerator. I'm glad I got to know him when I did. Give him a hug from me.

It has always seemed to me that it is so unfair that dogs are so short-lived. They are not pets, not toys. A dog is your very best friend -- probably the only friend who will be there for you all day, every day, rain or shine. A dog is your buddy, your baby, a treasured member of your family. We are not talking about the death of a dog; we are talking about the loss of an important relationship in our lives. And it is far, far too short. This is a beautiful write, Theresa, and I pray that Sunny's end-of-times will be gentle.

As a dog man, it pains me, already knowing that I will survive the puppy and that I will be left alone, but in between, all those years of communicating with each other without words and yet, understanding each other.
The eyes of Sunny are telling, "I know that I have a very short time left, but it doesn't worry me but leaving you alone"

This is so warm and tender and beautiful...and Sandie is right pets are indeed like our own children and losing them or watching them age and fade can be heartbreaking. Thank you for this, Theresa, and long live Sunny!

I have had a cat Freddy for 16 years. When we first got him from the animal shelter he was only 10 months old; but how time flies by and he was gone after being with us for 16 years.

Pets are like humans, they are our best friends, and we just don't want to see them old and feeble. We wish they could stay young forever.

Good write, Theresa!...and a handsome dog in the picture!!!
