God looked around His garden
And He found an empty place
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your precious face
He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest;
God' s Garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew you' d never ever
Get well on earth again.
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered " Peace be thine "
Then He took you up to Heaven
With Hands so gentle and kind.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God welcomed you home.
IF TEARS COULD BUILD A STAIRWAY
If tears could build a stairway
and memories a lane.
I would walk right up to heaven
and bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken.
No time to say "Goodbye"
You were gone before we knew it
and only God knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you.
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want me
to mourn for you no more.
To remember all the happy times
life still has much in store.
Since you will never be forgotten
I pledge to you this day.
A hallowed place within my heart
is where you will always stay.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say
But first of all, to let you know that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from the Rainbow Bridge.
Here I dwell with God above
Here there is no more tears of sadness; there is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you badly, you are part of My Plan
There's so much we have to do, to help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do
And foremost on the list was to watch and care for you,
And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight,
God and I are close to you in the middle of the night.
When you think of life on earth and all those loving years
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears
But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain
Remember there could be no flowers, unless there could be some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over
Now, more than ever before, my life to you is closer.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too
That as you give to the world, the world will give to you.
Then you can say to God at night and "my day was not in vain."
And now I am contented that my life was worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
Lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you go.
When you are walking down the street and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go, from your body to be free,
Remember you're not going. You're coming here to me.

This is Murphy's mom.
How can I ever thank you for the 14 years of your life that you spent with me.
You were one of the best dogs a person could ask for. You were outdoor trained in least that a week. You never destroyed anything.
I still have your first stuff toy a fonzy bear.
If dogs became saints then you would be one.
You have the most beautiful brown eyes and black hair. Your beautiful little face will always be with me. I will miss our morning ritual getting your breakfast ready and your medication and then your walk. I would than repeat this again in the evening.
I just can't believe you are gone.
A promise is a promise and even though I am grieving. I pray to god that you are pain free and will be there when it is time for us to meet again.
I love you my little buddy.
Hugs and Kisses your mom.
