For our other beautiful best friend, faithful Mephisto, who traveled with us to Australia.

 For Mephisto, our best friend (as was our beloved Borgia)

2001- 2011


All that’s left are the photos
And the memory of big brown eyes
And the tears and the loss and the sorrow
And the heartache when your dog dies


No better friend e’er graced the home of man
No gentler spirit beside us e’er walked and leaped and ran
Farewell my faithful friend
We’ll meet again in the halls of Pan


In the halls of Pan beyond the Western seas
Where amid the woods and glades
The laughter of our time shall be renewed
And from all grief and pain we find release


Now go chase rabbits in your long sleep
And run pain free amid the rain
Bark and run and leap and eat and sleep
And soon, so very soon, we’ll meet again

This is beautiful, and yet heart-wrenching, so descriptive it's as if we're watching a movie.

A heartfelt tribute. I remember writing about my dog, Jazz's death, and posting it here.

Keith, your feelings speak to me loudly, they sing a song of true eternal love, bravo, you are one of a few, a real Mensch, I wish more of our species would get over themselves and value other creatures as much, especially a pooch, Hugs!

A loyal send-off for precious family. All dogs go to heaven.....let's hope they save us a place. ~~ Diana
