A dog's love

I Remember

I stood by your bed last night. I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying. You found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast. I watched you pour the tea.
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today. Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels ~ I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today. You tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you that I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you. I smiled and said "It's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know that I was standing there.

It's possible for me to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

You sat there very quietly, then smiled. I think you knew ~
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over ~ I smile and watch you yawning,
and say "Good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out ~ then come home to be with me.

So beautiful, tender and sweet. The spirit is there. I could read these all day by different people about what theirs dogs meant to them. They all are so unique in the ways they touch our lives, the little things they do. I've been gone all day with the kids and gonna be gone most of tomorrow too. But talk to you tomorrow afternoon. peaceful sleep to you tonight.♥

If only Misty had known that all these people across the world liked her so much. If you all had been in our little world you would have liked her that's for sure. She had no faults (except grabbing that frisbee and refusng to give it back!) She was a sweet little Soul.
Blessings to Buddy too. He had such a nice face.

I went through all your pictures again and feel like I know Misty (and you) a little better.Hadn't viewed the second page before. Love the closeup taken while she is "watching you put on mascara." There is pure adoration in her eyes. Like she's saying, "Silly Mom. She thinks she needs makeup. She's already beautiful!" What an awesome animal.

Sylvia, My future daughter in law sat in front of my computer today and took turns reading this poem. So beautiful, and by the time we finished it, we were both in tears. There is absolutely nothing in this world like the love between a human being and a dog. Not just any human being, as you have to be worthy of a dogs undying love. You and your Misty had that special bond, there is no doubt about that. And I know just as sure as I know there is a heaven that you and Misty will be together again as you are everyday in your heart. I hope this letter finds you well.

How I ended up being breezytoo is that I couldn't remember my password after an absence and couldn't get a response from MedHelp, so I had to get in like that. I found out after telling everyone about Breezytoo that aheart is still there but when I try to get there I get that message "This password or username belongs to someone else" As long as I can get to my MedHelp I do not care what my name is, I have been with MedHelp since 2007 and I am not going to go anywhere.

I can see the first Azeleas  from my kitchen window, so I know that spring is here! God Bless You and please take good care. Darla
