Buddy was a Shih Tzu and nine years ago after my
darling dog Tramp died, this friend of a friend gave him to me. He was 4 years old
and such a little cutie. He was such a happy boy too. Everyone would always say
that to me, that Buddy was such a happy little fellow. He smiled at me all the
time. He followed me around from room to room, even at the end when he was so sick.
He haled my heart after Tramp died and now he is gone too and my heat is broken
again. I held him as the vet gave him the "sleepy" shot and then the vet took him
back for the fatal shot. He brought him back. I tucked him up in his little bed
and covered him in the little blanket I knitted for him. I kissed him goodbye and
left him there for the pet cemetery to pick him up. I have his ashes back now, but
its empty without him. He used to sleep on the bed with me, but not after I got a
new bed that was to high for him. I bought him a couple of dog beds and he snuggled
up in those in my room. He and Misty slept side by side on their beds. In the end,
I could not let him suffer anymore although I would have done anything to keep him
with me, but there was nothing left to try. He was my sweet angel boy. He and
Misty would always howl and cry when I came home even from an errand. They would be
so happy to see me. I will never hear those sweet voices greeting me every time
This was Buddy’s yard,
This was Buddy’s home,
This was where Buddy lived,
Now I’m all alone.
These were Buddy’s toys,
That was Buddy’s bed.
Buddy was my friend,
Now my friend is dead.
You’re missed so much,
My hands would linger,
To feel your touch.
I shall not see,
Your face again,
Looking at me
With that precious grin.
Your presence so missed,
My precious boy
Your still brow I kissed.
As I say goodbye,
To you one last time,
Oh cruel love
That wrote this rhyme.
The pain intense
The feelings real
My little dog
How much pain I’ll feel
Until one day,
We shall reunite,
In love’s embrace,
And dawn’s light.
Light a candle in Buddy's memory, for a sick, abused, or special needs furbaby,
or perhaps just someone who needs a prayer and a candle lit.
