Nikki

Just one more time
To hear your Rooooo
One more time
To sit next to you.
To feel your breath
Upon my arm
To laugh once more
At your Wiggle Butt Charm
Just one more time
To Rally O
One more shout
Go Nikki Go !
One last walk
Down through the Springs
One more day
For all these things
To feel your snuggle ...
Or make your tea
One more day
To be with me.
Now you are so far away
Yet in my heart
Each and every day .

God Bless Sweet Nikki

Laura .... you are an amazing mom and you gave Nikki a wonderful life and she and Adrienne will be waiting patiently for you at the Rainbow Bridge .


My dear Pal Gunner ... i know your skinkids will miss you terribly ... this is for them:

Why Dogs Don't Live Longer Than People
......Sent to Dr. Blake by one of his clients to share with his readers..

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year- old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family there were no miracles left for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for the four-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience. The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him.

Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, "I know why."

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. He said, "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life --like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?" The four-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

God Speed to all my pals who crossed this summer .... you will live on in our hearts forever !
