The Spoiled Rotten Dog Days Of Dallas

I Stood By Your Bed Last Night

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.

I called to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key. I
gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "it's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew ... in
the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out ... then come home to be with me.

The Spirit of a German Shepherd Dog

I was standing on a hillside
In a field of blowing wheat
And the spirit of a German Shepherd Dog
Was lying at my feet.
He looked at me with kind dark eyes
An ancient wisdom shining through
And in the essence of his being
I saw love there too.
His mind did lock upon my heart
As I stood there on that day
And he told me of this story
About a place so far away.
I stood upon that hillside
In a field of blowing wheat
And in a twinkling of a second
His spirit left my feet.
His tale did put my heart at ease
My fears did fade away
About what lay ahead of me
On another distant day.
“I live among God’s creatures now
In the heavens of your mind
So do not grieve for me, my friend
As I am with my kind.
My collar is a rainbow’s hue
My leash a shooting star
My boundaries are the Milky Way
Where I sparkle from afar.
There are no pens or kennels here
For I am not confined
But free to roam God’s heavens
Among my Shepherd kind.
I nap the day on a snowy cloud
Gentle breezes rocking me
And dream the dreams of earthlings
And how it used to be.
The trees are full of liver treats
And tennis balls abound
And Milkbones line the walkways
Just waiting to be found.
There even is a ring set up
The grass all lush and green
And everyone who gaits around
Becomes the Best of Breed.
For we’re all winners in this place
We have no faults, you see
And God passes out those ribbons
To each one, even me.
I drink from waters laced with gold
My world a beauty to behold
And wise old dogs do form my pride
To amble at my very side.
At night I sleep in an angel’s arms
Her wings protecting me
And moonbeams dance about us
As stardust falls on thee.
So when your life on earth is spent
And you stand at Heaven’s gate
Have no fear of loneliness
For here, you know I wait.

A little late, but I had to find the right words.... Dallas'- Tail Of Devotion

You were my angel, my soulmate, my love, my life, my everything. When I first cuddled you, I felt nothing but sheer happiness! Nothing could bring me down that day. I can still remember the warm puppy kisses on my cheek, and the deep, but soft scent of your milky puppy-breath. You slept in my bed from day one, and I still had to mix milk into your puppy food, which later in life became a real treat for you!

We went through some tough times together, but held eachother up through and through. We were best friends! When your first birthday rolled around, you were showered in toys, treats, and anything special anyone could think of!! We went on long walks together, and often raced down the old country roads side by side! When one of us slowed, the other did. We ran as one, racing down that stretch of gravel as fast as we could. We werent dog and human, we were the wind!! We were as fast as lightning, and at the end of the day, we'd sit om the old swing, on our deck, and watch the sun descend over the cornfield.

The last time I saw you, my heart was wrenched in utter, complete despair. I hoped, prayed, that I’d see you again. That this was just one nasty nightmare gone devastatingly wrong. That nightmare was sadly, reality. I gazed into your deep, soulful brown eyes, and spoke. “Dallas, I love you. Don’t you ever, ever forget that.” With a wag of your tail, I embraced you. Took you up in my arms, never wanting to let go. I loved you. I still love you. As I looked into those eyes that I had known, everyday of my life for the past year and a half, I could see that you loved me back. My eyes welled up into massive tears, which repeatedly rolled down my cheek onto your soft, glossy fur. I stroked your head, as I could feel my heart sinking lower and lower in misery. I never wanted to let you go. You were the best friend I’ve ever had, and will know. From the time we first met, it was love at first sight. When they took you away from me, I felt my heart burst into an infinite amount of pieces, never to be repaired. When you died, a part of me went with you.

In Memory of Dallas, 10/18/02 – 8/16/04

The cats, Cheyanne, Alex, Sylvester and Kamala, are attacking the snow through the window, but thats not the same as really attacking the snow. They dont even imprint there paws in it. Chickens.

I'm soooooo spoiled it rocks!!!!!!! Me and the rest of the 4 legged family have our own twinsized bed, I get some human food. I love lasagna:) Jewel hasnt been feeling very good though. My mommy thinks she has CHD Canine Hip Dysplasia. I dont mean to brag or anything but mom clcked me once going 40mph.Its in my nature as a German Shepherd to protect and help the ill or weak but I have been guarding Jewel very closely. She is a good friend of mine and shes older so I have to respect my elders.
