My friend had to put her sweet dog, Harley, down yesterday, it was a very sad day for all who knew him. I wrote this for her.


In Memory of My Friend
Sweet little friend
You’ve left too soon
To take your final rest
The space you filled
Within my heart
Is now a hollow my chest
I will miss you more
Than you can know
For you brought me so much joy
But now sitting upon
The lap of God
Is my cute little Harley boy
Remain ever close
And watch over us
Protect our home from harm
And I promise you
This love in my heart
I always will keep warm
When the time does come
Into my life
To leave this earthly place
I know that’s when
I’ll again see that wag
And your fuzzy little face.

My deepest sympathy to you and your friend. culturally we do not raise dogs at home but I feel that losing one after living together for sometime is no less painful than losing a friend. Thanks dear Sherry for your soul-moving tribute

a beautiful dog Sherry
sorry for your personal great lost
It is heart breaking when someone loses a dear
part of a household as a lovely adorable pet
they seem to become part of the family
Peace be with you

Much sympathy to your friend. Animals are a thousand times better than most people, and when you lose one so close to your heart and soul, it's so sad. My prayers and blessings to your friend. :(
