JUST MY DOG
He is my other eyes that can see above
the clouds; my other ears that hear above
the winds. He is the part of me that can
reach out into the sea.
He has told me a thousand times over that
I am his reason for being: by the way he
rests against my leg; by the way he thumps
his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he
shows his hurt when I leave without taking him.
(I think it makes him sick with worry when he
is not along to care for me.)
When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive.
When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.
When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.
When I am a fool, he ignores it.
When I succeed, he brags.
Without him, I am only another man. With him,
I am all-powerful.
He is loyalty itself.
He has taught me the meaning of devotion.
With him, I know a secret comfort and a
private peace. He has brought me understanding
where before I was ignorant.
His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.
His presence by my side is protection against
my fears of dark and unknown things.
He has promised to wait for me...
whenever...wherever--in case I need him.
And I expect I will--as I always have.
He is just my dog.

Pebbles has meant this and so much more to me, Dan, and the rest of our family. She has been the heart of all that we are, and how we see all those around us. She came into this world showing such gentlesness of spirit, that one could not help but be affected to the core. Over the next weeks (or I beg God) months, we are going to do everything in our power to show Pebbles how much she has meant to us for these past 9 years. We have to feel lucky for all of the time we have gotten with this angel, and we will continue to cherish ever hour,every minute, every second we have left with her. A.L.L. (ACUTE LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA ) may be taking her body away from us, but the soul that lives within her will never die in our hearts. Love,
