My wonderful big boy Merlin

Hello my lovely big boy.

Merlin I found a poem that suits you perfectly.

I saw a glimmering vision
It took my breath away
'twas the silhouette of a shepherd
More regal than words can say

The beams of light they danced
on a coat of endless black
A vision of perfection
Atop an iron back

He stood there like a statue
for all the world to see
What a vision of perfection
The German shepherd can be

The look of a noble prince
Lord of all he surveys
Confident in himself
Eyes fixed in aristocratic gaze

Never shall I forget
The vision I saw that day
Of the mighty shepherd
Who took my breath away

A Vision
written by Carol Kufner

You are a vision Merlin, a vision of beauty and perfection. You always took my breath away Merlin.

How I wish I had played more with you my boy, I deeply regret the time's I didn't, I wish I had those times back. I am so sorry Merlin. I wasn't being mean Merlin, I felt so tired my boy.

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy.


Its been a month since you have been gone.

A month has gone by since you left my side Merlin, I've felt every second with an enormous pain in my heart. I still look at the path to the fence that you, Bella, Hobo and Spud made and I still expect to see you sitting on that mound next to the fence look so proud and majestic. God how I miss you Merlin, why did He take you from me? You did nothing wrong.

All I have to hold onto for now is this Merlin:-

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies who has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Please be there to meet me Merlin, I love you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy


Good morning my wonderful boy.

Hello my boy.

The past few days have been so hot Merlin, I don't think you would have liked it at all. There is no wind at all today, it is so hot, its getting uncomfortable, but at least the nights are quite cool. Spud has been sitting in front of the fan trying to cool off, Bella lays on the tiles in the bathroom and Hobo lays where he can.

Melissa has brought home a new cat called Zoe, she is quite pretty but very unsure at the moment. She thinks Spud wants to eat her, he just wants to be friends with her. When she lashed out at him and scratched his nose, he walked away disgusted.

Today would be a great day for you and I to sit under one of our tree's and just enjoy each others company, but knowing you, you'd probably want me to throw sticks for you to chase after.

I still miss you so much Merlin my big boy, so much

Go play my boy

I love you Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy

Hello my boy.

I'm a bit late this morning, my internet wouldn't connect to your diary. I left it for an hour or so and here I am my lovely boy.

I think of you every day Merlin, you are never far from my thoughts. Spud is beginning to become so much like you, he did your favourite laying down by laying his head between his paws. He has never done that before, he reminded me so much of you my boy.

Spud is the result of two of the best friends I ever loved, you and Lady Zara. He looks so much like her and behaves so much like you. Spud is a lovely boy Merlin, but he will never replace you, nor will any other puppy.

I'm still biding my time before I get another German Shepherd puppy, not to replace you Merlin, but in your memory. He or she will get a lot of love, I wont compare him or her to you as that would be unfair, because you were so special Merlin, and you still are and always will be.

Today so far has been one of my better days since you left, although I keep seeing you in my minds eye the night you became ill. I hated that night so much, you didn't deserve to be ill Merlin, you really didn't. I wish God had spared you my boy, but maybe He has other plans for you. I wish I knew what they were, perhaps you will be reborn in the new puppy that adopts me. I hope so.

I love you Merlin, go play and enjoy yourself.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin.

I was able to connect today no problem. It is so lovely to talk to you everyday my boy, I feel closer to you. I often think of the puppy things you use to do and the antics you did as you grew older. The way you use to talk to me, or talk to a rock. You always had be laughing Merlin. There is still the cracked tile on the porch where you dropped a huge log on the edge of it, boy was mum annoyed. Of course I covered up for you, after all you are my best buddy. Don't tell mum eh?

It extremely hot today my boy with no wind, not the sort of day you liked. Mum put out a baby bath and filled it with water, Bella had her front paws in the water drinking out of it.

Mum is getting use to her car, I wish you were here to see it, I think you would like to ride in it up to the dam so you could go for a paddle in the hot weather.

I remember when Melissa use to say to me, "Daddy you spoil Merlin more then you ever spoiled me!" I wonder what her point was. Of course I spoiled you, you are my best buddy, and that's what buddies do.

Time to go play my boy and enjoy yourself.

I love you Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy

Hello Merlin.

I hope you don't get bored with me writing in your diary, it makes me feel closer to you my boy.

Today is very overcast and not so hot, the kind of day you loved to run and play, I can still see you in my minds eye racing around chasing Spud, and never managing to catch him. He is fast on his feet that boy.

Melissa said a couple days ago, "Spud is a very sweet little boy." Well he is your son Merlin, all of his sweetness he got from you and Lady Zara. I miss her too Merlin, when she climbed on my lap you didn't seem to mind, it was as if you accepted her. Remember how we teased you when we said, "Is she your girlfriend Merlin?"

When I threw sticks for you to fetch, she always ran with you, but she never attempted to take your stick, it was as if she loved your company and accepted you as her boyfriend.

How I long for those days back again Merlin.

Go play my lovely boy.

I love you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my big boy.

It's nice and cool again today my boy, again the sort of day that you and Spud would be running round and round. Spud really misses you my boy, he tries to play with Bella, but she snaps at him, well she is getting long in the tooth now. Hobo simply wants to lay on the porch or run up to the fence and bark at strangers.

It still amazes me how much Spud is like you in his mannerisms and some of the antics he pulls, like you he can be so naughty at times, but in a nice way, just like you.

I miss you every single day Merlin, you are never far from my thoughts. Every time I open your page on Dogster and see how proud you look in your picture. One day when its not so raw over you leaving us, I'd like to get some of your pictures framed. So many people commented on how pretty you were as a puppy and how handsome you look as an adult. I have had many doggies over the years Merlin, but never had the bond we had.

It's time for you to go and play with your friends Merlin. I'll talk to you tomorrow God willing.

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning my wonderful boy.

I always try and leave you a bone everyday, so you have something nice and juicy to chew on when your not running around and playing. I bet that you are having so much fun, I wish I were there to play with you. One day my boy we will meet again, and believe me I am going to give you the biggest hug and cuddle.

The pain I felt when you left me has eased a little Merlin, that doesn't mean I love you any less, now I can look back on the fun things we did, the games we use to play like when I'd throw a stick in one direction, then when you chased after it, I'd throw another in the opposite direction, then you'd chase after that. It was so wonderful watching you have so much fun my boy.

Some times my eye's well up with tears when I think of the look of joy on your face whenever I called your name. You would come running up as if to say, "Hello Daddy, I'm here." I do miss you so much Merlin.

When I get a GSD puppy my boy, I hope you will look down on him or her and approve. He or she will never replace you, never ever, but will be in your honour and your memory.

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy.


Congratulations my wonderful big boy.

I almost forgot to tell you, you have again been given the honour of being a Featured Diary. Well done my boy, I am so proud of you.

I love you Merlin.

Hello my boy.

It's quite a nice day today Merlin, windy but not too strong and not a cloud in the sky, although I think it will get very hot later.

I suppose you have been running and playing with your friends Merlin, having so much fun my lucky boy.

Spud tries to say hello to Melissa's cat Zoe and Zoe doesn't like it so she hisses at poor little Spud. He can't understand why she don't like him.

Bella is still the same, she will never change. She does keep Spud and Hobo in line, just as she use to keep you in line when you were a puppy. You were so naughty when you were a puppy, but in a sweet and wonderful way, I miss those days Merlin, I wish I could have them back again.

When Bella gets annoyed at Spud, he pats her on the head with his paw which makes Bella even more annoyed. It's so funny to watch, it's as if he is telling her not to be annoyed with him.

Time to go play my wonderful boy.

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy
