The house is a little quieter this morning and a little lonelier. Our Silky Terrier passed away peacefully in his sleep yesterday after fighting a long hard fight. We had his love and devotion for 10 yrs. He was such a good old dog and we miss him. I wrote this poem in his memory.
He silently listens to my trouble and woes
A shadow that follows where ever I go
With a loyal devotion, his brown eyes shine
A faithful companion this buddy of mine
His steps grow slower, we’re close to the end
I’ll never forget you my old furry friend
If dogs go to Heaven , the first thing I’ll see
Your little tail waggin’ as you run to greet me.
