Missing You

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.

A Dog's Last Will and Testament


My Precious Dog King


You were my love
You were my joy
You were my all dear mighty boy.
Your master now is grieving
You’re forever in her heart
We shared many moments together
I loved you from the start.
Someday, we will meet again
my loyal and best friend
I know your by my side
until the very end

With All My  Love,


King went so fast. I didn’t even know there was a problem until close to the end. I sat on the floor with him all night just waiting for the vet to open. My vet then said they were to busy to see him. He had a heart attack 10 minutes after I got him to a vet.

King had sepsis and I didn’t know. I hadn’t even heard about it. Apparently it is quite common in humans as well as dogs. Sepsis is a life threatening complication of an infection. It moves very fast and occurs when chemicals are released into the bloodstream to fight the infection. These chemicals trigger inflammatory responses throughout the body. This inflammation can damage multiple organs causing them to fail.

Please watch your dogs closely for any sign of infection and get them into a Vet.

In memory of my beautiful Star
