You'd come to us when no one cared
you were skin & bones and, oh so scared...
we'd feed you and brush you and keep you warm
all those times you had to fend on your own.

And when you'd leave us to return to your plight,
we'd cry and worry for you every night.
We begged that man to let us take you,,
but he never relented till he got his due!

You and our Buddy were such fast friends
you stayed faithful to him right to the end.
We know he's been watching from up above
and is happy to see you have so much love.

Your younger days were filled with fear...
why, we never once saw you raise your ears!
Your tucked in tail never raised high...
and nothing but fear filled your eyes.

After you came to us to stay
we saw the changes, day by day...
Soon up came that beautiful plume of a tail,
wagging and wagging like it was a sail!

And what a surprise it was to our eyes
when those big perky ears began to rise!
Gone were the days of neglect and abuse,
'cause you knew in your heart you'd come home to roost!

Your eyes, once so downcast and hurt
were now shiny, smiling and oh so alert!
You knew in your heart that here you'd remain
and your life would be filled with love, no more pain.

You loved when we'd stroke your soft Golden head
and you slept in pure peace in your own warm bed.
You now had a home that would be yours forever,
and even a brother who'd protect you whatever!

We've been blessed by your presence for over 4 years
and try hard not to show you our hearts filled with fear.
We've aged together, our sweet Golden beauty
and treasured each moment we've had as a family.

Those sweet times you come to my side
and lean your soft head on my leg with a smile..
As I stroke you sweet head and you look in my eyes,
I try and choke back the tears I will cry.

And, when the time comes when you must depart,
know, sweet Angel that you're taking our hearts.
But you will live on through the memories we've made
All the joy, love and comfort you so willingly gave.

We know Buddy will be there to meet you
and all the other angels will help him to greet you.
Fly free at the Bridge, run happy, be healthy & strong,
and we'll all be together again before long.

Your sweet presence gave us love beyond measure
and it's those precious memories we'll always treasure...
Thank you for all the joy, love & happiness you gave us
our beautiful Golden girl, those memorie will save us.

Mommy & Daddy are so very sad at what we must do,
but it's not about us, we're doing it for you.
We gave you your favorite treat today...
A Frosty Paw as you're going away.
Just know, sweet girl, as you depart...
It's best for you, but breaking our hearts.

(Our precious "Socks" went to the Rainbow Bridge at 6:30pm on November 12th, 2012.)

I am so very very sorry....

You gave her the best years of her life and loved her totally.

Thankyou for doing that.

Thankyou for giving her the last and most precious gift of love too.

If you dont mind.... I will borrow your words.... because they say it all.

That's what we ask.
The truth is,
we may never
be able to know
for sure why.

But we do know
that there is no single
"should have done"
or "could have done"
or "did" or didn't do"
that would have changed that why.

All that love could do
was done.

Your poem is beautiful and meaningful, a precious memorial to a life that was lived well and with so much love and those who cared deeply. Sweetest girl, you are with your dear Buddy, Angel brother, and many wonderful Angel friends who will hold you close and show you the way. We love your family so much and are praying for comfort for dear little Sully. (( ))

Oh Socks...I am so sorry you had to leave your wonderful furrever family but I know you are happy and healthy at the Rainbow Bridge.

Dear Turner, Petey & Sunny~

Thank you for your sweet comments in memory of our Angel Socks...they mean so much to us.

Petey, Mom wrote that poem several months ago while she could when we knew Socks' time was limited (and just put on the ending after she left us).

You are all so dear and we appreciate your thoughts so much.

Sully, Angel Socks, Mom & Dad

You were Angels to darling Socks when she had no one. You five (don't forget Buddy!) belonged together long before she came to stay forever. And she is with you now and always because Love Never Dies.

Angel Sam and the other The Loud MacLeods and Bert, their Mom send their love and admiration and lots and lots of hugs.
